Pine Island Fishing Report: Tailing Redfish Everywhere, None On My Boat.
Over the last two days and through the rest of the weekend we've got some perfect late afternoon tides in both Pine Island Sound and Matlacha Pass. The reds love these conditions and have been rooting up the bottom along with the mullet schools, especially just before sunset. I've probably seen more than 500 tails sticking up in the air over the last 48 hours. It's been absolutely amazing and I'm ready to smash my head into a wall because I can't make them eat anything we've cast to them. I can't come up with any explanations for my bad luck but the sunsets have make coming home empty a bit more tolerable.
