Haines made a long strip, resulting in a good hookset, then raised his rod as the fish powered back onto the oyster-laden mud flat. Playing his fish with the line in his hand, Haines brought the fish safely to the boat for release. We hoped for another shot, but the school of reds had simply disappeared.
Get out of the way and into the fish on the Indian River. I had known that there were schools of redfish on the shallow flats at the southern end of Mosquito Lagoon. Until now, however, I had been unable to catch more than one or two fish a day, no matter what I seemed to do. I was about ready to give up.
Here’s a cool little short for fly guys, not to mention, if you haven’t stalked the flats in the Florida Keys yet, this might just convince you. Join captains Bou Bosso and Brian Gabriel for an up close experience of a great day on the water sight fishing for redfish and tarpon.
