Tailing Redfish in the Grass

Bar none, this is the best of all of the fly fishing that this part of the state has to offer. This is the only time that you can get out of the boat and stalk the fish. You will be taken to areas that have sparse growths of grass with water is about knee deep. We then LOOK for the tails. Some flats have tails popping up everywhere and some have just a few. Either way, seeing these tails waiving to you will excite just about everyone. Most of the fish range in size from 7 to 12 pounds. This is one of the few times that you can get away with making a cast only about 35 to 50 feet (accurately off course). When the fish turns on the fly and explodes on it, you get pretty excited. Just writing about this brings chills down my spine. There are also sheepshead in the same flats. They range in size from 6 to 10 pounds. THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST FLY FISHING WE HAVE TO OFFER.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:  AUGUST THRU OCTOBER

 

 

TROUT

Trout will hit chartreuse or silver flies with curly tails.  The fly that I tie for this looks like a green or silver, caterpillar with a curly tail.  I like to tie this fly with as much weight as I can throw with an 8 or 9 weight rod.  The more weight, the faster it sinks and the more you can work it and still have the fly keep in touch or near the bottom.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:     MARCH  thru DECEMBER 

 

TROUT  TOP WATER

There will also be days in the spring and fall that the top water fly fisher can enjoy a few hours of trout fishing for fish in the 2 to 8 pound class on top water poppers.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:     APRIL  thru DECEMBER 

 

RED FISH (backwater)

The reds are feeding around the oyster mounds and on the flats and they will hit several fly patterns.  I like the gold spoon and the Jim Hammond special. I also like a popper for the top water explosions.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:     JANUARY thru DECEMBER

 

SPANISH MACKEREL and BLUEFISH

The spanish and blues will eat almost anything. Most of these fish are thick in numbers but lack in size. Most are in the 1 to 2 pound class.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:     APRIL thru May

 

JACK CREVALLE 

(THE BULLDOG OF THE INSHORE WATERS)

The best of all is Mr. Jack Crevalle in the 3 to 10 pound class.  When these bad boys come to the top feeding, watch out. They strike like a mad fish and they will test any tackle that you own.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:     May thru August

LADY FISH 

(THESE ARE SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS "THE POOR MANS TARPON")

These fish are another that are thick in numbers, their size is not matched by their aerial acrobats. This fish ranges in size from about 2 to 4 pounds. When they are here they are thick as flies and will eat a bare shinny hook.  When hooked they come out of the water several times, making long hard runs before you get them near the boat. When boated you will think you have caught a small Tarpon, as they look and fight just like a tarpon.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:     APRIL thru August

 

TARPON

These fish range in size in our inshore waters from 25 to 200 pounds.  There are a few places that I have consistently seen tarpon, hooked a bunch and caught a few. There is one place here that tarpon live year round with the size ranging from 20 to 30 pounds.

DATES FOR THIS ACTION:  May thru October
