Details: Red (redfish) Drum with a Flats create (white)
water levels were high, and a lot of clouds but was still able to pick up 6 fish in 3 hours. only saw one pod, mostly signals laid up against shore.
Details: Golden Rainbow Trout with a wooly bugger yellow/black
Personal best Rainbow! Water is moving fast, throwing behind a large log jam in slowest water I could find. Was using a new 5 weight Scott radian; I have to say ...more I definitely prefer the older scott rods. Rio gold line with a 5x leader and a recently aquired Charlton 8450c which so far lives up to the hype.
Details: Red (redfish) Drum with a Shrimp Fly
Redfish in the sand flats on the back side of Padre. 8wt Hardy rod; Hatch 7+ reel. fish seemed to move in the sand flats in the afternoon when the wind picked up. ...more Red was scarred on back and fin. Didn't take the bait at first, slowed down my strip, turned around and hit hard. Thank you Simms for saving my face today.
