17 Feb Redfishing in Charlotte Harbor
Fished Charlotte Harbor today with good friend Cameron Schurlknight aboard a Hewes 17 Tailfisher… it’s always nice to get a change of pace away from the kayaks, but always reminds me why I prefer fishing from a kayak as well.
At any rate, we launched into the Harbor just as the sun was rising. We fished from the West Wall to Little Gasparilla and had good success finding tailing redfish early while the tide was lowest, then trout and redfish in the potholes as it began coming in, followed by redfish on docks after the tide had reached its peak.
Baits of choice today were MirroLure’s Lil John in natural shrimp color, and DOA 4″ split tail all rigged on 1/8oz MirrOlure twist on jigheads.
