The redfish bite remains strong across the bay. On high tides, redfish are grinding on live pinfish and sardines against the bushes. Look for a spot with good flow and jumping mullet. As the tide drops, follow the mullet. Redfish will eat spoons and any swimbait type of soft plastic. Craning in the spoons through the mullet schools, reds will often "knock it" with their nose to see what it is. If that keeps happening, try tossing a gold shad tail. Snook might also be found mixed in with redfish, but most are in small schools around deep mangrove points on a high tide and like to move off to potholes adjacent to the points. Also, with this weather, bait flats are loaded with big trout, and when the cool winds preceding a storm approach, the bite goes off. Recently we got 10 fish of more than 20 inches in the last 15 minutes before a storm ran us off. Be safe and be careful pushing the limit with storms; they can be dangerous.
