Tailing Redfish On A Cloudy Morning



I had a tarpon trip booked with MN anglers Brian and Nathan Anderson on Sunday moring but a solid overcast put those plans on hold for a while. Sightcasting to those fish requires lots of blue sky and we had an excellent rising tide at the same time, I shot up into Buzzard's Bay in the north part of Matlacha Pass and put the guys on a bunch of tailing reds for a couple hours.  Nathan landed this really nice 22 incher on a Dupree Spoon fly just before the water flooded in and covered them up for the morning.  Redfish are everywhere right now and just like any other time of year, they'll be following the mullet.  Look for the food and you'll find the predators.
