Last Days OF Sight Fishing…..

were spent with George and Don as we headed out mid morning for some redfish action. We started by fishing St Augustine’s shallow water flats in search of last chance schools that we found with out a problem. Shallow water glassy conditions is the ideal conditions to sight fish redfish and that’s the conditions we had. We not only physically saw the redfish but could see them “pushing” wakes in the distance. A properly placed live shrimp on a Daiichi 1/0 circle hook would result in a caught fish. After the charter the guys took their catch to JT’s Seafood Shack where fresh blackened redfish was the main course.

Capt. Chris’s Fishing Tips

With the water clarity starting to diminish its time to break out the “search lures”. Search lures is a term given to lures that cover water quickly like gold spoons, topwater plugs, inline spinners and spinnerbaits. These lures are great for stained waters because of the flash, vibration and noise they produce to attract fish on the flats. live bait fisherman searching for redfish should soak cut bait like mullet, pinfish or ladyfish around oyster beds where redfish can pick up the scent.
