 Schooling Redfish and schooling Flounder we have been finding them regularly. This time of year. Redfish start schooling up to prepare for the changing of seasons coming soon. We are getting into one of my favorite times of the year schooling fish, calming seas, and cooling weather.

 

Whether you're a fisherman or like to Gig flounder this is the time to book you're trip ask me about a combo trip (gigging then fishing same day). Give me a call at (361) 463-6545 or visit my website if you have any questions. I'm going to share with you what to look for as these fish patterns change in this article below.
 

 

Redfish by my observations generally work the shallow back lakes most of the summer they transition frequently from the flats to the drop-offs just outside the flats regularly this is the pattern you need to figure out that day as it can change from one day to the next. The way I figure this out is looking for (the signs) bait, patches of muddy water, and pushing water from larger fish.

Schooling trout usually run the surf and channels leading to the surf during this time period look for the nervous bait, slicks, pelicans diving and working gulls. Calm seas are a big plus if the wind allows you to travel to the surf you can have an easy day. Just be careful and mindful of the weather. Generally the water the schooling trout travel is the drop offs.

 

The larger trout will hang tighter to the shorelines, they usually don't travel in schools as often.


Flounder Wow best year in 5 years! We are seeing lots of baby flounder and up to 20" with an occasional 23"+ flounder. Now all the way to January is the time to book you're trip. We Gig flounder off a custom boat you do not have to get in the water. The rain is paying off we had just enough fresh water last year and this year to really help out the flounder numbers. We are getting limits of nice flounder on most days. The flounder have been schooling also we work a lot of ground and see very few then we hit a school and gig several so if you catch one you can bet there are 10-20 around just keep at it.
 

Drum have been tough for me finding a few schools, but they just aren't eating well. I'm finding schools by lake drains and adjacent to shorelines and the bait that's working best is sightcasting shrimp into the schools!  

To be more successful always fish the conditions given for the day always keep your options open you never know when you need a Plan B or C to be successful. Don't get hung up one what happened last week tides change, winds were more then likely different and always be safe weather can change rapidly this time of year.
