Mid-Bay Trout & Back Marsh Reds
A late bite found Cast & Blast guests "right where they needed to be" coming off of morning duck hunts. Capt. Braden Proctor lit into the Redfish with Drew W. and sons. Capt. Donnie Heath had covered a lot of real estate on an early trip and found sluggish action over mud/grass venues. After the early morning rains on Sunday, Capt. Donnie Heath led his guests into a barrage of Trout action over area shell reefs working artificials. The guests managed near limits of keepers and encountered a ton of smaller schoolies along the way.
Hunting turned out spotty with most of our blinds under water on highly elevated tides and mild weather for the opener. It'll get better and better as the season progresses. Teal, Gadwall, Redheads and Pintails were among the species taken with Capt. Braden getting the first band of the season on a Redhead. We've got lots of hunts and cast and blast trips ahead and we're looking forward to an awesome year. If you're looking to schedule a trip, we'd love to have you!
