I figured 5.00…. What have I got to loose…
Got there and the tide was moving. Fished my way in as was recommended. Caught 4 going in, only one slot fish. Was not complaining.
Got to the first pond and got several more hook ups but none in the boat, they kept spitting the hook. As the water level dropped there was some grass/weeds that became visible and interfered with my lure. That’s when the biggest redfish I have ever seen began hitting bait at the waters surface. Over the next 2 hours I threw everything but the tackle box at those bulls and they would hit none of it! They kept blowing up minnows on the surface though. It was very frustrating and entertaining at the same time.
The weeds were getting thicker and thicker. Then I noticed my trolling motor was hitting bottom and was on the verge of freaking out. I raised the trolling motor up as high as I could and barely made it out, really glad i didn’t make it to the second pond.
I think next time I’m going to motor in to the second pond and fish my way out. Oh and I loaded up with some floating plastics that I hope will entice those big bruisers.
Keep your lines tight.
LET THE BAITS DO THE TALKING
From Salt to Freash water fishing.
