The winds finally subsided today on the Gulf side of southwestern Florida and I headed out with my good friend Mike Scarlett to have some fun catching and releasing spotted sea trout. We fished Blue Fox spoons, the Rapala Sub Walk and TriggerX tubes fished under a popping-cork and caught lot’s of fish. I fished the Rapala Shift outfit loaded with Sufix 832, 20 lb. test braided line and Sufix fluorocarbon leader. We had a double high-tide this afternoon which made fishing for redfish too tough since they can right back into the mangroves where there is so much high water. Instead we decided to fish grass-flats that are normally 12″ deep, but with the high tide, we had almost 3′ of water to hunt-down the sea trout. Tomorrow we’re planning on fishing the rising tide and getting into some trophy redfish.
