Low Tide Fall Tailers

Recommended Posts

My buddy and I hit up a popular spot that we new a low tide would produce. We got there early with great chance of rain, and we got lucky as we never truly got hit by it . The tide was dumping, so we drifted a flat just to get our bearings and to see if we could see any fish. All the while we threw some early morning topwater, and managed to find some very aggressive trout! None of size, just small aggresive fish! We then reached the far west side of this flat and Alan managed to find a small redfish in a sand hole, that he drifted over, casted back at, and it still ate! We searched for the next two hours with no redfish or snook to show for it. By this time the tide was completed dumped and a dead and dreadful low. We had to drag our yaks for quite some time. As we were dragging our yaks, Alan then spotted one redfish tail 20 yards away, and we rushed over there to see who could get the first cast at it! I was busy trying to pull our my fly gear as it was the perfect shot, but I failed ha ha and Alan stuck it with his Monster 3x. We then made it back to where we began and with a dead low tide, finally found the motherload of tailers mixed in with Mullet! Big bright white-ish looking tails. We made a few casts, and we were both hooked up to very solid 26 and 27 inches. I then lost what I belived would have been my personal bed redfish as one of the hooks in my weedless set up broke mid fight! Challenging but great day on the water. Just one of those days were you have to put in the work!
