Winds associated with the latest cold front found us focusing on Redfish with success and managed a few Trout as well. There is an absolute pile of Redfish trapped in the Clyburn Marsh according to Capt. James Cunningham that saw them when scouting for some waterfowl trips. According to James, these fish were likely pushed up in this hard to enter and exit stretch of "overflow" marsh lakes during the Hurricane and are going nowhere unless we get a big bull tide and then they'll have to fight the grass for an exit. Capt. Chris Cady went after them by airboat and came up empty on rod and reel on a cast and blast trip (they wouldn't eat). He said he could have filled the boat with a cast net because they were swimming by in schools relentlessly. That's frustrating but fun to watch and the clients had a blast seeing them.
Capt. Terry, Donnie, and Braden had the honors with corporate guests and managed solid boxes of Redfish including a 25.5" Trout with Capt. Braden coming on cut mullet of all things (hey it happens).
There were a few nail biters on big South winds but it's been all good on the northerly wind direction. We've have some friends and family groups in new to duck hunting and it's been fun showing them the ropes. To be sure the best is still ahead as we get ready to close out the first split. If only there were a few more days on the calendar. Pintail, Wigeon, Gadwall, Teal, Redheads, and Blue Bills have been hitting the blocks of late with some honest decoying making for memories of a lifetime.
