Spooky Reds

Got around to editing some footage from a trip in July. While working down in Grand Isle I got an evening to get out and stalk some reds. It was windy that day, the tide was high, and clouds were intermittent – basically conditions were working against me when it comes to sightfishing. However, I managed to one flat that was full of individual mangrove plants and had a few small reds too. This flat probably only floods on a high tide so I was in luck that it actually had water on it. The reds were a bit spooky because the water on the flat was shallow and clear and there really wasn’t much sneaking around I could do. After a bunch of refusals I finally had some success and now have a spot in the back of my mind for when the tide is super high.

    Looks like you left your paddle leash (and your mojo) at home. šŸ™‚ Like someone posted on a forum recently…try that again in October and you’ll see different results! šŸ™‚

    • Kevin, the paddle clip actually broke during this trip, that’s why you don’t see it, which definitely made that transition from paddling to grabbing the rod that much harder.

  2. Been there man. Nothing more frustrating.
