My old roommate had never fished inshore before, but after watching so many episodes of (insert fishing show name here) he wanted to go catch a redfish. So with that being the goal, we set set off to mark a species off his list. We didn’t have to search too long before we saw reds blasting bait on a sandbar. These fish weren’t just eating, they were in a full blown frenzy! All you could see were bronze colored backs, 4 inches out of the water, and small mullet running for their lives. One properly placed Berkley Gulp Shrimp on a jig sealed the deal. Luckily I had another friend on the boat who was equally interested in our goal, and allowed me to get hooked up as well.

Blind casts pay off. Many times fan casting a flat we are sight fishing on produces great results. Here’s a nice spotted sea trout this junior angler caught on a Gulp! jig combo. The Banana River has a large population of sea trout and I love to fish for them. As the weather cools off big trout will start populating the flats and often will eat large top water plugs and live baits. Give me a call if you would like to go chase them.
