Seeing Red… The GoOnies…

Capt. Willy Le and I made our way North to the Mosquito Lagoon, the day after the tournament in Vero.  A front was threatening to approach us further south so we drove north of the cold front and fished behind it.  This would prove to be a good choice as I had a little time to fish before having to head back down to Miami.  The cloudy conditions always make it tough to sight fish but we had small 5 minute windows of light that would allow us to capitalize on what shots we had… patterning out the fish, we set ourselves up for quite a few great shots as the sun peaked.  The fishing was nothing short of spectacular.  We caught 8 redfish out of the 13 we stuck metal to in the 3 hours.  This was definitely a lot of fun feeding fish that aggressively attack a well placed fly.  We got to test a few new fly patterns I had developed earlier that week and I am happy to report great success and a new fly that has found itself into my back of tricks. 

had to catch one on a DOA before we left... 🙂

I got to cast and test some new gear this trip so stay tuned for an update for all the fly and spin gear heads out there…
