Palm Coast / St. Augustine Fishing Report

Sean and Keith were my guest aboard the Hellsbay for a day of sight fishing schools of redfish in St. Augustine. We started a bit slow looking for a big school but they must have swam into deeper water avoiding us so we motored to the next flat only to find a few singles and a 30 fish school that disappeared after Keith hooked up. I could tell Keith was starting to get a little leery of my stories of 100 plus fish schools but I reassured him we had to wait for the right tide and it would be game on.

As the perfect tide neared we made a run to the promised land and finally found what I have promised the guys. We sat for had to be just over an hour dead smack in the middle of a large school that ate our offerings on every pass. What really helped the guys put fish in the boat was how they hooked and silently fought the fish not alerting the others of what was going on. This is a technique I preach when fishing schools which Keith and Sean had already perfected.
