The bait started showing up around Memorial Day which meant that the larger redfish would soon arrive. June was a little slow but July has started off great! In the morning hours the reds chase the bait onto the shoals of the river and bays to feed. This is an excellent time to target puppy drum, slots, and over slots as they become easier to catch in the shallower waters. The legal slot size is 18” – 27” with a creel limit of one per day per angler. This 34” guy was above the slot size so we couldn’t keep it, but it will make for a good fishing story.
…don’t let the big one get away
