Well.. I think September has turned out to be the best month of the year so far for catching tailing Redfish and Sheepshead on the flooded grass flats! More than half the month had flood tides with plenty of opportunities to find time. I actually did my personal best by catching the wily Sheepshead after trying more than10 years with probably over a 100s of cast's at them. Managed to get it on my own tied crab fly that went 5 lbs. at 22" long. So don't ever give up trying to catch one. It's worth the wait and tell you it will eventually come. My clients also did very well with getting there 1st tailing Redfish on the grass flats. The flood bug fly was a big hit! Nothing like a topwater strike on the flats. The flood tide fishing should continue to be good for the next 4-5 weeks until the water gets to cold for the fiddlers and grass gets to high. Switching gears the dock light fishing for Sea Trout and Jacks also continued on a steady pace.
Rich's epic Sheepshead catch!
A strip strike hook set well done!
