Just a quick update on our winter Redfish fishery. February was really productive for us on the flats chasing schools of fish in (mostly) clear water. Lots of fish schooled up, some willing to play and some not so much. I had a lot of great clients onboard this month and we had a great time pursuing these blue tailed gamefish.
We fished fly and spin and found success with both. Every time we go, I learn a little more. It could be a different angle of approach, a different fly, a different presentation or just how to better communicate with my anglers. This month, we did some experimenting with a few different flies and soft plastics and also played with different angles of presentation. Winter is a great time to be able to see how these fish react and fine tune your approach and presentation.
Normally our winter time sight fishing lasts through the end of March, but we are already starting to see all the signs of spring. Warming water and air temps, algae blooms, returning bait, etc. The fish are still schooled up and the water is still clear, but that could be changing soon. Whenever mother nature decides to transition into spring, we will just adjust and keep on fishing.
Hope you enjoy these photos from some of our trips over the past few weeks. Thanks for the support!
