Tough Conditions For Redfishing

Falling tides, cloudy skies and frequent rains have tossed a monkey wrench into things these last few days.  A week ago we hit the mother load of schooled up reds in the north part of Matlacha Pass and they're still up there.  Finding them in a feeding mood is another story.  The choppy surface hides them perfectly so working the mangroves with live shrimp seems to be the best option.  High tides work best for that but they're occurring in the afternoons along with the thunderstorms.  Not easy but these big fall fish are more than worth it.
