Bull Redfish on a Cloudy Day

“Too hot, too cold, too sunny, too cloudy, too rainy, too dry…” I’ve heard all the excuses in the book about why the fish won’t bite, and I’m sure I’ve uttered a few of them myself on occasion. Most of these are also used for so-called fisherman who are underprepared for the weather. Well, we…

Red Fish Round Up

Capts. John Werner and Travis Meissner joined me on a sunny afternoon for a Red Fish Round Up. We chased a nice school of a dozen or so good-sized Reds up a shallow creek with the incoming tide. Neither the fish nor the boat had enough water most of the time, and it was an…
