2006 Fishing Report

2006 Fishing Report

What a year,
2006 fishing season has been one of the best in recent years. With many trophy fish caught and countless days were we just lost count on how many fish were caught and released.

Fall fishing has continued strong with days of 20 plus redfish per day are common. The Snook action has slowed down a bit as expected with the water temperature falling.

Starting November I have switched to the winter mode were I am using shrimp tipped buck tail jigs, root beer color Cottie jigs or just free lining live shrimp along the mangroves and deep hole during low tides. Large black drums and sheepheads have moved inshore into the mangrove islands. These fish are strong fighters and are what I call my by catch/ barometer on how well the fishing conditions is improving.
I have purchased a new shallow water skiff ( Beavertail skiff ) that has allowed me to venture into inches of water during the lowest negative tide. It has been very exciting watching my fly fishing client’s sight cast and land their trophy fish in less than 6” of water. The back country action on fly has been great both Snook and Red’s feeding wildly along the exposed oyster bars and shore line. Here the water warms quickly as the sun rays heats up the mud bottom and is a Mecca for the fly fishing enthusiast.
Small dark crab color flies have been by far the hot choice. So until my next fishing report have a great holiday season.
