Mike Rizutto and Kent teamed up with me this morning to target redfish. As tough as trout fishing has been lately, I was all for it.

We hit our first spot around 7 AM. Within 15 minutes Kent had already landed a 23 inch red on topwater. They continued to sight cast to reds that were destroying bait up in the marsh grass while getting blow-ups about every 3 or 4 casts. Finally, Mike hooks into a huge red and it started running towards where Kent was standing. Mike tried to steer the red away from Kent and his line broke. We managed a few throwback reds and trout before we headed to another area to seek protection from a 20 mph NE wind.

At our second stop, Kent caught one under sized red on a gold Johnson Sprite spoon. The water became extremely off color as the wind increased even more, so off to our third and final hole. There, we waded grass pot holes throwing spoons and Assassins. Mike and Kent caught a keeper red each and I lost one before calling it a day. We headed in around 12:30 PM.

I did speak with a few other guides that trout fished and the results were about the same for the ones throwing artificials. However, I did get reports of a few more keeper specks coming from the birds. The guys fishing with live bait also had mixed results. Fall is just around the corner. I can't wait!
