Cloudy Weather Redfish
The last two days have served us up nothing but strong northeast winds and solid clouds here on Pine Island. But fortunately, that's not the end of the world for us since we have miles of excellent shoreline where we can tuck in and cast lures right under the mangroves. My anglers managed to haul in both of these excellent reds on artificials in the past 48 hours while also landing snook, trout, and a handful of other species. Gulps and Zara Spooks were my go-to baits since live shrimp would have been instantly ripped to shreds by the countless pinfish that are still everywhere. The sun is supposed to reappear for the rest of the week so hopefully we'll start sticking these reds with flies again.
