LOUISIANA: Reds Were Hungry Today and it was Easy As it Gets

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Dig-In-Anchors.comKurtis Loupe, Brian Loupe, Shannon Loupe, and Cody Lirette jumped on board the big Bluewave this morning with me. They had no idea what they were in store for!!

We made one stop and had everyone in the boat with bent rods.

The reds were hungry today as it was easy as it gets. We loaded the Yeti with our 25 reds and 2 puppy drum and were headed to the dock for 8am. We ended up with 150 pounds of fish today.

My crew experienced the best trip of their lives, and were amazed how incredible the bite was. They will be talking about the trip for a long time, plenty memories made today!! Thanks guys, as it was great watching the excitement going on and listening to all the trash talk!!!

FLORIDA: Tropical Weather Tends to Jumpstart Redfish & Black Drum

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

What a difference a moth makes!!

A month ago the sweltering heat and humidity made early mornings a must. The early starts to our days rewarded us with beautiful early morning temperatures, NO rain (usually), and a sunrise that would rival any Caribbean island. Did I mention that the early morning fishing was fantastic as well? The earlier starts of last month provided my customers with banner Redfish, Black Drum, Snook, and Scalloping days due to the early morning activity that most Nature Coast gamefish tend to show this time of year due to the slightest drops in water temperatures.

The start of September on the other hand has been fantastic due to the lower humidity (as of late), the abundance of afternoon and evening showers, and I really can not tell you how much the winds and weather of Hurricane Isaac benefited our area. Throughout the summer months most of the Gulf lacks consistent winds which provideS a cool down through the churning of the seas. Without this churning the Gulf can become a sauna due to the lack of water movement. When hurricanes and tropical storms enter the Gulf the mixing of 81 degree Gulf water with 86 degree local waters not only provides a cool down but also infuses oxygen throughout all of our local waters allowing fish to feed more actively and also jumpstart migratory patterns.

Tropical Weather tends to jumpstart migratory species like Redfish and Black Drum into leaving their backcountry homes for the safer more nutrient rich offshore areas where these fish will begin their spawning ritual. The key to this migration for fishermen is that these fish will tend to school up before heading offshore to spawn, and before they leave they always gorge themselves on one more feast before making their long journey. This most definitely is the time of year that anglers tend to see spectacles that they only read about in magazines or watch on TV. Thousands of fish schools feeding on the surface turning 20ft of water into a giant Red mass is what this time of year is all about. And all it takes is to witness this event one day and you will be sold the rest of your life, just ask my customers Jay and Nancy Allen whom have had the opportunity to witness these events at least 6 times in the 7 years we’ve been fishing together.

Another added benefit to tropical weather is that it enhances currents, tides, and swells. That being said many migratory species pickup these currents and ride them to where ever they take them to. Bonita, False Albacore, and Tuna are noted species that follow this trend which would explain why over the recent weeks a handful of commercial fishermen have landed a number of Blackfin and Yellowfin Tuna along the Grouper Grounds just off our coast. As if that isn’t crazy enough an angler out of Homosassa reported not only hooked but landed an Atlantic Sailfish in the same waters where we troll for shallow water Grouper in 30ft of water.

To cap this amazing chain of events off comes the catch of the year along the Nature Coast. Tuna and Sailfish are great species known to every once in a while swim into our waters, but a BONEFISH to my knowledge has never been seen let alone caught along the waters of the Crystal River until now!!! Capt. Clay whom is a very good friend of mine and excellent Captain came across the first Crystal River Bonefish on September 1st. Obviously, this fish rode the currents of Hurricane Isaac but to know that there was a Bonefish swimming around my local waters shoots shivers up my spine. This is by far the greatest catch in Crystal River to date and I hope I hear of many more in the coming future!!!!

This just goes to show you, you never know what each day of fishing may bring. One day it could be a great battle with a Redfish or Shark, the next day you could be fighting the first of its kind for our area. The only way to do battle with the unknown is to get out and give it a shot.

FLORIDA: Redfish / Trout More Cooperative in Deeper Water

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Just trying to catch up here at Redfish U.

Running double trips for many days to come. No complaints here and it’s great being the most popular guide service on the Gulf Coast. Our mornings our full of speckled trout and redfish and our afternoons are full of sharks in celebration of Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week.”

The redfish/trout have been more cooperative in deeper water but we’re still getting plenty on Sebiles in the early morning. Slow Gulps! will sweep up the rest. The sharks are ranging from 2-5′ and are plentiful throughout the bay.

Doubles tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday and then throughout next week and another extended vacation may be in order.

Thank you Redfish University clients!!

FLORIDA: Redfish – Shrimp, Shiners & Cut Bait has been working

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Redfish

Has been on fire when you get the right tide. A few going over the 30″ range. I’ve been doing best on any tide that has good current. Shrimp, shiners & cut bait has been working for me. The schools can be from ten to fifty. Fishing reds on the flats can be a casters’ dream.

On the lower tides, they become very visible with their tails sticking up in the air. Fishing for tailing reds is great fun! The trick is being there when they are feeding. Try working the edges of the sand bars and oyster reefs.

Some people call it fishing for reds, I call it hunting. When poling the flats for reds, move very slowly and watch for wakes, tails and boils. When fishing the mangroves, fish the top end of the high tide and get your fly, bait or jig underneath the mangroves as far as you can. This technique will also produce a few snook. A great way to cover a lot of water and it can be very productive. Flies, artificials and bait all are working well for these beautiful strong fighters. Try bait fishing them with pinfish, shrimp or cut bait. Flyfish them against the mangroves and on the flats with a earth tone colored clouser and for some real excitement try top water on the overcast days. Average size about 18″ to 30″ with some larger ones around. Watch for those TAILS!!!

Tarpon

We’ve been doing well on the beaches and in the Sound. Summer time is tarpon time! So now is the time to book your tarpon trip. We do best with live baits, but the fly and cut baits will work as well.. These critters will range from 40 lbs. to 200 lbs. with the average being around 100 lbs. The Silver King is a fish of a life time, very strong fighters and jumps that will out do any marlin. Either bait or fly, you owe it to yourself to fish for this species.

Snook

Are very active with the water temperature in the 80’s and bait almost everywhere. They can be found near mouths of creeks, passes, canals, pot holes and points. White bait, shrimp, cut ladyfish, flies and jigs all will work. Fish them on a tide with good current, I prefer an outgoing tide.

A well placed shiner or fly will result in a violent fight that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Spotted Sea Trout

You can almost catch one on every cast if you find that perfect sand hole, creek or grass flats. I can’t remember when we have caught more large trout than this year. Summer time produces even larger trout. Fun on light tackle or fly this fish is aggressive. I’ve been fishing them in 3′ to 5′ of water over grass flats or sand holes.

Jacks, mackeral, pompano, cobia, grouper, sharks and more! These fish and others are common on the flats and backcountry. When encountered thay all are a lot of fun with tackle or on the fly.

S CAROLINA: Redfish are still biting well on Shrimp, Mullet or Mud Minnows

Monday, August 6th, 2012

The fishing in the Beaufort area continues to be hot. Almost as hot as the daily high temperatures. Most trips are being conducted in the early morning, as the winds are down and the temps at least moderate.

Sea Trout are starting to show everywhere as our shrimp crop grows, along with our finger mullet populations. Most are still under the 14 inch minimum, but should be in the keeper range by later this fall. I’m looking for a banner trout year.

Redfish are still biting well on shrimp, mullet or mud minnows, and a variety of artificials. The nearshore wrecks are producing well, with Weakfish, Spadefish, Blues, Ladyfish, and Jack Crevalle the main targets.

The big Jacks are also being taken in Calibogue Sound right now.A friend reported a school of a thousand fish seen there last week, and he took a 48 inch Jack. What a fight that was.

Tarpon continue to be a main target for charter guides in our area.

LOUISIANA: Bad Weather – Good Trip

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Windy Rainey Day Yesterday.

Larry, Robbie,Josh,and Blaine and I left the dock at first light and was met with a huge storm . It blew 20to30 for awhile no getting outside after the trout.

Plan B, so we worked around some ponds in the rain close to Black bay for redfish hoping the weather would break and we could get out. We put a few reds in the boat broke off a few and landed and released a huge bull drum. Then it happened the rain stopped wind calmed so we took our shot and ran out.

First stop a couple dirty water second and third catfish number four it happened picked few trout so we anchored down and they slowly started coming in the boat then they turned on trout coming in steady. The weather was making another run on us so we headed in and just made it in time. Cold and wet but smiling with box full of trout on bad weather day.

We fished hard no matter the weather and made the best of it and got lucky.

S. CAROLINA: Redfish this Time of the Year is on Topwater Baits

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Well it looks like we are well into spring and the fishing has been heating up along with the temperature!

I have seen a dramatic change in the behavior of the redfish over the past few weeks. Fish that were schooled up are now breaking into smaller groups and singling off. The fish have also become much more aggressive on the bite and they are feeding quite heavily. Some of this probably has to do with the large amount of bait up on the flats. Flats that were void of bait are now holding everything from crabs to mullet to minnows which has created a fish buffet for the reds. Along with the redfish I have also been catching a few speckled sea trout, flounder and bonnet head sharks. One of my favorite ways to go after redfish this time of the year is on topwater baits. We have been walking zara spooks near the grass edges and catching some very nice fish! Some of the these fish are coming back 3-4 times to get the bait so be patient as it is very easy to pull a topwater lure away from a fish before he can get it down… this is especially true for a redfish as they are more accustom to feeding on the bottom.

Until next time, Catch em Up!

FLORIDA: Redfish Have Been Biting Well All Month Using Cut Bait

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Hello Everyone. This April was a great month for fishing in Clearwater Florida. We had a mild winter and a warm spring break which resulted in water temperatures a little warmer than usual.

Pelagics, Spanish Mackerel and Kingfish, arrived in early March and have been around all April. Although I rarely target Kingfish, because of the flats boat, I was able to get offshore on a few calm mornings with great success. Using a chum block and throwing live Sardines out the back of the boat was the secret to get good bite going. Kingfish and Mackerel fillets make a great fish spread.

Large Snook are showing up at their summertime homes near the passes and sandy beaches. A few large fish, up to 37 inches, were caught this month using Threadfin Herring for bait. Some days the Snook had a severe case of lockjaw.

Redfish have been biting well all month using cut bait along the mangrove islands at higher water levels. Also, I am looking for Redfish near small oyster bars and fresh water run-offs. Residential docks have also produced some nice fish this month.

The most abundant fish this April has been Spotted Sea Trout. On a recent trip out of St. Petersburg the two anglers caught and released over 80 fish.
Trout were schooled up in a small sandy cut, near the grass flats, that had a good tidal water flow.

FLORIDA: Great Redfish Action Using a DOA Baitbuster

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

The Mosquito Lagoon flats fishing has been about as good as it gets these past couple weeks. Except for a couple days of windy weather, both the conditions and the fishing have been outstanding. Anglers have been encountering from 500 to over 1000 fish per day. Our three springtime species, redfish, trout, and black drum, have all been cooperating. Both fly and light tackle anglers are having success on a variety of lures and fly patterns. Big schools of mullet have arrived in the lagoon and the fish are feasting on them.

Richard spent a couple days on the front of my boat this month targeting fish on fly. He had lots of shots at fish and managed to catch all three species. The black redfish worm and bendback patterns were the most successful.

The third day Richard was to go with me, we arrived at the ramp to 20 knot winds. After some consideration, he decided he would rather not go out in the tough conditions. Since I was already there, I hopped in the boat for some fun fishing. The winds unexpectedly dropped and I was able to get in some decent sight fishing. The redfish were very aggressive and willing to eat anything I threw from Baitbusters to topwater to CAL jigs and flies.

The following day we found some large schools of redfish at first light. The would allow the anglers one shot before moving out of range. As the sun got higher, there were consistent shots at single fish on the clear flat. Several redfish were caught and released. They ended the day with some nonstop catching action for trout using a jig and CAL tail in 3-4 feet of water.

Friday was nearly a carbon copy with more schools of redfish. During the day we found a spot holding redfish, trout, and drum well off the beaten path and had shots at them for nearly 2 hours.

Last Monday I had the pleasure of fishing with John Machin and Paul Procter. They are both fly casting instructors in the UK and needed every bit of their skill as it was the only day last week the wind was blowing. As luck would have it, most of the schools were nowhere to be found. Both guys but on a top notch fly casting display, however, catching both black drum and redfish in sustained winds up to 24mph.

Tuesday there was no wind, clear skies, and redfish in every direction. Jon had an excellent day of sight fishing on the flats catching his first Mosquito Lagoon slam.Tom got to experience some great redfish action using a DOA Baitbuster that he threw to tailing fish. Reeling the bait along the surface to mimic a small mullet, he caught some nice reds and lost a few as well. Later in the day, he finished with some nice seatrout.

The husband and wife team of Ray and Kim were on board for Thursday’s trip. Ray landed the first red on a Baitbuster while Kim followed up with several nice drum and a redfish of her own. They then proceeded to catch a trout nearly every cast for the last half hour of the day.

On Friday, Bob and his son Joe made their first trip to Mosquito Lagoon. The action started off good with some nice schools of reds in the first half hour. After a brief lull in the action, we came across plenty of singles and small groups. The day ended with several large trout being caught and released on 5.5″ DOA CALs with a Woodies Rattle.

The redfish have turned their focus to mullet and pinfish and have been very aggressive the past few weeks. Lures imitating mullet will be effective on both the redfish and trout. Watch for trophy sized trout to be lying on shallow sand holes. Once you see them moving the chance of getting a bite is significantly reduced. Get the lure or fly to them before they see you and your success rate will be much higher. Look for the outstanding sight fishing to continue through this month.

N CAROLINA: Look for Reds in Creek with Dark Colored Bottoms

Friday, February 17th, 2012

What great weather for this winter so far; lets hope it stays this way right on to Spring time! With this great weather has come some of best winter fishing I’ve seen around here in a very long time. Even on the ‘not so nice days’ the fishing has been good and other days down right great; finally a milder winter for a change! Cool mornings and warm afternoons are hard to beat in Southeast North Carolina in mid February!

The Redfishing lately has been pretty good most days when the wind is not howling and we’ve seen some nice schools of Reds. Warmer, sunny and lower wind days can be the key to catching these inshore winter Redfish. It’s not hard to catch them once you find’em, look for these Reds in creek with dark colored bottoms and oyster rocks never hurt. Scented soft plastics like Berkley Gulp should do the trick to get these Reds to hit. Patterns in Gulp like Shrimp in sizes 2″ and 3″ are my go too, colors that seem to work the best are pearl, molting and new penny; the new Fire tail colors work great too! Try lighter jig heads like 1/16 and 1/8 when winter fishing; lighter jig heads help you to work the lure much slower and still look nature as possible.

Surf Reds have been hit or miss; I believe that a lot of the Reds are still up in the creeks due to all the mild weather this season. I have caught a few good days of surf Reds when the weather is just right. Casting Berkley Gulp Ripple mullets on 1/4oz and 3/8oz jig heads in colors Rootbeer gold and New penny’ don’t forget that fluorocarbon leader this time of year the water is super clear!

I’ve made quite a few trips to the Cape Fear River year; there are three different kinds of fish to chase in the Cape Fear, Catfish, Striped Bass and even a hand full of nice Redfish most all winter long. Here is a few ways to put a CFR Striper on your line. Try Berkley Gulp Jerkshad in five and six inch size; in pearl & new penny colors. Work these baits slowly and always rig them weed-less; there are many hangs in the Cape Fear River. Try a Moaner swim bait hook with the Berkley Jerkshad; this is a great hook at a great price.  I use the weighted Stroker hook in 1/4oz 5/0. Look for Stripers on drop-offs, dock pilings and reed-grass lines.

If you would like to give the Catfish a try, use baits like cut mullet, chicken livers and cut eel. I use heavy Carolina rigs when I fish for catfish. Try an Eagle claw L42 2/0 to 4/0 hook with fifty or eighty pound mono leader to make your carolina rig. Look for the catfish on drop-offs from five to twenty feet of water. We have seen some blue cats over thirty pounds caught in the river so try not to use to light of tackle; these are not always your ‘farm pond channel cats’!

Tackle run down: Penn Battle Spinning reels sizes 3000 & 4000 for the Redfish and Striped Bass. Penn Legions in 6’6″ & 7′ medium and med/hvy action; line Spiderwire Ultra-cast in ten and fifth-teen pound; Berkley Big Game Fluorocarbon leader for my leaders.
