The late summer/early fall pattern is in full swing for sure. Breaking fish have been somewhere every day. Stripers, Blues, Spanish Macs and the possible huge Red Drum are available! Since August 1 I have found breaking fish somewhere on all my trips…..many trips have bee epic. Spanish Macs and the occasional huge Red Drum have been making trips very exciting!
Last week after the tropical storm thingy or whatever it was I fished the eastern shore skinny water a couple of days. We picked up some nice Stripers and even 3 Specks! We lost a Speck at the boat which was the largest I’ve ever seen…..I’ve had 2 Specks at 30″ in the past. This Speck was bigger than that for sure. I’m glad it’s still swimming!
This monster was caught on a chartruese 5″ z-man on a 3/4 jighead. Z-man plastics are Bluefish proof……so….instead of losing all my bkd’s with all the blues around Z-Man is a great alternative. I’ve had several Reds lately but none expected……not shocked but never expected. They tend to just show up under breaking fish for me. I’ve caught most of the Reds on Hardhead Custom Baits 1.5 or 2 ounce jigging spoons but also have caught some on the Z-Man baits and one on a 6″ BKD. Most of the Reds have hit down low but two recently hit right at the boat! That is exciting…..when a Red monster blows up near the boat it’s shocking! Wish it would happen every day!
Truly an incredible accomplishment to hook and land one of these beautiful fish on light tackle, land it and release it…..seeing them swim away is special!
