November's Guest Speaker is
Craig Gittings


Craig will provide his take on Redfish

Redfish along the gulf coast provide unique if not intriguing opportunities. For larger redfish, you want to head for Louisiana. If you want to sight fish in clear water, target the flats adjacent to the inter-coastal waterway in South Texas.

There are a few elements involved. A guide can only do so much in providing the opportunity by getting you close enough to cast. Once the fish is spotted and called out by the guide, you as the angler must be able to translate position and distance and only then actually spot, follow and target the feeding fish. Your cast not only has to be on target, the retrieve must be immediate to touch down and impart life in order to trigger a response.

If you enjoy targeting tailing bonefish, finning and tailing redfish is just the ticket in Louisiana or Texas. One guide advised carp fishing for a season and come back ready to fish for redfish. If you cannot do that, try targeting a moving Frisbee, he added. It is believed he forgot to say add wind in the practice regimen. These destinations get you out where there is really no competition for these fish and they readily will attack a fly when properly presented.
