Redfish Before The Cold Front
Our near perfect week of weather ended today right at 4pm when a cold front hit the island and brought a bunch of rain with it. Fortunately we had several hours of great low water and a really nice amount of tailing reds in Matlacha Pass. Boynton Beach angler Andrew Wideroff drove over from the east coast and hooked a couple on both fly and spin. He also landed a snook and trout to complete the Slam but they were on the tiny side and not worth photographing. The weedless spoon fly is still the best thing to throw at tailing redfish and that's what fooled the one pictured above. Just be sure to bonk them right on the head with it to get their attention.
