(The above pic is about the average size redfish we were catching this past weekend. We saw some big ones in the mid 40" range, but no takers.)
I was traveling this past Thursday and didn't return till late Sunday evening. I spent the weekend at a cabin down on the Land Cut
fishing Nine Mile Hole
and Middle Ground with some good friends.
It wasn't the best weekend to be down there obviously, but we did manage to find some very nice redfish in locations that are normally above the water line. It's a weird deal running and fishing in areas that are normally considered land. We had both wind and rain in every direction with occassional slack wind. There were lot's of red fish in the North end of Nine Mile going into Mud Flats and Middle Ground. We chased several big schools that seemed to be very good at staying just outside our casting distance. The majority of our fish were sight-casted, but we did manage several fish blind-casting during the rains. We ended up boxing some nice trout in the 16 to 18" range as well.
I'm looking forward to normal tide patterns and cooler temps...the redfish fishing should be outstanding.
