Easy Tactics For Improving What Was A Slow Redfish Bite
Having a hard time getting the Redfish to take the baits. No matter what you try would work. Changing lures, speed of the retrieve would to turn the fish on. You could see them, but no bite. So, here’s a good idea. Cut up some of the Pogeys and Menhaden from your live bait well and start throwing it towards the nearby grass. Within minutes the Redfish many times will became active and the bite improves. Throw what amounts to as a chum slick in about 3-4 feet of water to keep the Reds in a more limited target area. If that’s not enough, use a simple “split shot”rig with the remaining live bait on a 3/0 hook to float over the chum area to create a realistic presentation to what was before shy Reds. Perfecto!!!!! The same tactic also works with Speckled Trout and Flounder. It’s a great way to turn the bite on and return to a great fishing day.
