Redfish and more wind.

Trip Info


Yesterday I had the Johnsons on board for a Redfish trip. They were willing to fish through the wind that has been absolutely relentless the last couple weeks. We left the dock before sunrise and made a run deep into the local marsh. The guys threw weedless plastics and dead shrimp under a popping cork. It was not easy fishing in 18 mph winds, but they worked worked through it to put 15 beautiful Redfish on ice by 10:11 am. Dead shrimp under a cork caught the majority of the Reds.

June, July, August, and September provide great Redfish trips as long as there is tide movement. I do my best to block the days that do not offer optimal conditions in regards to the tide. When we speak the night before a trip, after I check the updated forecast, I will give my honest opinion of what I expect we’ll catch the next day. If you’re not satisfied with my prediction, I’ll welcome you to cancel or reschedule. Pictures posted in my previous reports, photo galleries, and reviews show a consistent success rate of good catches, and happy customers.

If you have any questions or concerns about booking a trip, please do not hesitate to contact me.

At your service,
