A quick update on the inshore bite since we last spoke. We’ve been blessed with some really pretty days the last two weeks. Sunny skies and low winds. We’ve seen a lot of Redfish, but that hasn’t necessarily made them easy. Most of my trips have been on the fly rod and the fish have demanded accurate casts and have been pretty picky. Let’s just say we’ve earned them.
That being said, we’ve earned some nice ones. This big fish fell for a well placed black and purple shrimp pattern and is definitely in the running for biggest fly caught Redfish of 2022. We sent her back home to crush a few more real shrimp before she heads out to join the breeder size fish this fall.
Seeing lots of Flounder still busting Shrimp and Mullet in the shallows. This one jumped on a shrimp fly cast up into a few inches of water.
I’m working on a personal goal this year. Something I’ve come close to but never accomplished. More info on that later in the year. If you need a hint, it’s in the above photo.
Michael came down from Pennsylvania to try to sightcast one on fly. Goal accomplished.
Al from NY got his too. We worked hard for fish this day, but hard work pays off.
Thankful for such a great summer season chasing shallow water Redfish. I’ll switch to mostly nearshore charters starting next week, but we’ll still be slipping back into the marsh occasionally to play with the Reds.
They’re baaaack…… Albies have been around for the last 3 weeks or so. Some days they’ve been pretty hard to locate and some days it’s all you want. Some have been sipping and some have been crushing 2-3” bait that we can easily immitate and get bit on.
No monsters yet, but plenty of “fun size” torpedoes. The 8wts have been getting a workout…definitely a different game fighting these guys after playing with Redfish all summer.
Birthday Fish for Mr. Perry.
Bad time of year to be a baitfish on the Crystal Coast!!!
Work out session with Al B. Core. Did you know that you can get in your weight lifting and pull ups while going fishing?
I am tying up as many Surf Candies and Clousers as I can right now, because the next 60 days are going to be non stop with no rest for me. I am so thankful for everyone who has helped me book up my Fall calendar. I still have a few dates left open during Albacore Season so give me a shout if you want to grab one.
I still have: Oct 12, Nov 9, 10, 16, 18.
