A man named Bass! 2/22/16

As Michael Bass and I were idling out of the no wake zone from the boat ramp, he was explaining to me how he has had a goal of catching redfish for over ten years.  After trying unsuccessfully for 10 years worth of vacations he decided to hire a guide. Well this was his result, within 20 minutes of launch, not a bad “first” redfish.20160222_074209

We had slick conditions and a cooperative school all to ourselves.  He sight fished 4 of these beauties using a 4 inch Grandslam Baits paddle tail on a 1/4 ounce Slayer jig head.

Eventually the wind came up and the fish became harder to spot.  We moved on to fishing with blue crab for bait. These guys showed up for a snack.20160222_113024

I think Michael is sold on hiring a local professional to take him fishing when he travels!
