Pine Island Redfish On Fly After The Cold

With the water temps still in the mid-60's all day things were really slow in both Pine Island Sound and Matlacha Pass.  Fortunately I had a great angler on the bow when our one good shot of the day happened.  Fifteen year old Marshall Hespe landed this 24 inch red near Captiva Rocks using a Dupree Spoon Fly.  His dad Bill brought in a handful of small trout with spinning gear and that was it for the day.  After the beating I took out there all week I was just happy to be out there wearing less than four layers of clothes today.  Thing will warm up quickly and we've got good tides this weekend, too.  We'll be seeing more fish like this over the next few days.
