Flood Tide Tailers

You’ve got to love seeing a fish feeding nose-down, completely oblivious to everything else around. The full moons of summer bring high tides that flood the spartina grass flats, enabling us to search high in the marsh for tailing redfish. The “redneck” in me really digs being able to hunt and fish at the same time. The fish weren’t tailing as much as usual tonight, but we spotted several fish gorging themselves enough to get a few shots.

Perry, an excellent fishing mentor and a good bud. It had been awhile since we last chased redfish on the grass flats.

Chad had the mojo tonight – he managed one on fly and another on spinning tackle.
