Seadrift, TX. Sight Casting 9/9/21

Each day is different, that is what I like about guiding. Today was no exception, we traveled to an area I haven’t fished in a while, but it was set up perfect for the north wind. We had good clean water, and tons of bait. But, the first 6-7 reds of the morning wanted nothing to do with the baits we were throwing at them. Usually these fish like big baits, 5-7 inches.

However today, after a few short strikes and you could see they just grabbed the tail of the bait, we downsized to the small Down South Lures burner shad and 4″ baits. This did the trick for the most part. We still had a handful of refusals after that but, they didn’t even attempt to strike. They just swam on past like it wasn’t even there. In my opinion this is one of two things. First, some of these fish might just be getting to the area, and are getting their bearings on food sources and cover. Second, it could simply have been the weak front that we got. About mid-day I checked the Barometric Pressure, it was at 30.02 and climbing. This could have been just high enough to lock some of these fish up.
