Default Blackwater Redfish!!!! w/pics

Headed out to Blackwater to fish on 2/15/2008. Had a spot that has been good from the boat so we decided to try to wade up to them. Got on the water at 6:30 and found a school of about 20 reds. We ended up catching 10 redfish and 2 small trout. The reds ranged in size from 10 inches to 30 inches. One to big and one to small with 8 in the slot. Kept the 2 that we are allowed and let the others swim away. All fish were caught on a gold spoon/ 5" bass assassin. Hope you all enjoy the pics.

(We also fished the same spot on Wednesday 2/13/2008 and caught 7 reds all of which were in the slot. Sorry I don't have any pics from that day.)

I love to hear about people getting out of the boats to catch reds. That is the way to get after them. Did you try any topwater or is it just still a touch too cool? It looks like you were catching them in a couple of feet of water.

The water we were fishing in was no deeper than 4-5 feet. I love fishing topwater but we didn't try that on this trip. I think the water may still be a little to cool. Most of the bites we got weren't a wallop, kind of a slow swallow which leads me to belive the fish are still a little lazy. Definitly need to fish your bait slow.

When I am able I like fishing all around in Blackwater. But thats only when the boat is available. But I fish from the Bay Point area down to where the old Nichols Seafood is and also around Peterson Point.
