I had some nice folks from Wisconsin yesterday who had the opinion that our cold weather was warm and temper ant when I explained our temperatures have been in the 20′s every night for more than a week and it might be tough to get the Redfish to eat, their comment, “20 above or below”. We fished the last of the outgoing and first of the incoming tide. Even though we put baits of live Mud minnows and Gulp shrimp in front of hundreds of fish, no takers on the low water. It was fun seeing lots of fish schooled up in tight schools and not very spooky. The technique was to use the trolling motor to move against the tide and set the power pole down when a school moved away from the boat. After a few minutes the school would move back toward the boat. We did get a few bites if we cast a bait well ahead of the anticipated path of the school and the school moved over the bait. The other key was not to move the bait, if you moved the bait the school would spook away. After the tide changed and flooded some mud flats and oyster beds that had been exposed to the sun in the morning the fish began to eat. Not that it was a bite every cast but a well placed cast ahead of a school would produce action. The Gulp shrimp worked just as good as the live Mud Minnows. We landed 8 all over the slot except 1. Great time of the year to fish, glad the weather is getting warmer.
