Good Numbers of Slot Redfish in San Carlos Bay

Inshore: Redfish rodeos are starting but a bit slow where big fish are concerned. My crews boiled some slot fish but at least the numbers were fair to good. Frozen shrimp on jig and cork rigs worked as usual with smallish pins very good as well. Our best bite was on the incoming in San Carlos Bay but got curtailed by a late morning storm front. Got some sterling reports from the northern end of Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor with bull reds reported. Some over-slot hogs were captured in pictures—31-34 inch fish. Snook action remains fair to good with early morning incoming tides the best using threads, pins, and shimmy shad softplastics in the passes. Outgoing tides can be even better, weather permitting. Midnight ramblers scored big on their secret spots, it's in the blood, I guess. Trout reports were scarce and we didn't spend much time hunting down specks.

Capt's Corner: Be prepared to cover some ground looking for bigger redfish. Pins may be the best offered, so bring along chum and wrestle a few, keep the shiners for live chumming. Stinky shrimp are still a winner and don't take any real time or work, just a thought. Geography seems to be more critical than bait, look for green water in all this rain.
