Fishing Report - January 1, 2011by Capt. Bill Baldus on 01/01/11
Happy New Year! For the last three weeks a cold front has descended on south
We have been finding some quality redfish during these cold periods. Water conditions have been extremely clear making for great sight fishing. We are seeing some baitfish, mostly in the backcountry. Look for bays with birds working these pods and it will increase your odds on finding fish. Both the outside points and back country are holding fish. These fish have been laid-up on the edge of the bars or lying in the deeper water troughs rather than cruising as they do in warmer water. Go slow and watch these edges for the tell-tale shape. We have been finding some snook but they are not as aggressive as reds in this cold water. This week’s warmer water should change things up for the best.
Both the Redfish Alien and 10k Baitfish in size 2 have been working well on a slower retrieve in the cooler water. Looking forward to the warmer weather!
We will keep you posted,
