<BLAIR> THAT LOOKS LIKE A NICE QUIET SPOT FOR THEM TO COME UP AND GET WARM ON THIS NICE DECEMBER DAY IN THE SUNSHINE SINCE SNOOK HAS TAKEN SUCH A BEATING DOWN HERE WHAT S YOUR PREDOMINANT SPECIES? REDFISH? <GUIDE> ABSOLUTELY THE THEORY BEHIND IT IS

WE HAD A FISH KILL A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO THE WATER TEMPERATURE GOT DOWN INTO THE 4O S FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS THE FISH JUST COULDN T HANDLE THAT TEMPERATURE IT KILLED A LOT OF THE SNOOK A LOT OF THE CATFISH

A LOT OF GOLIATH GROUPERS A LOT OF THE PREDATOR FISH, SO THE THEORY BEHIND IT IS, THE REDFISH ARE REALLY FLOURISHING BECAUSE OF THAT BECAUSE THE LITTLE FRY REDFISH WEREN T EATEN BY ANY OF THE PREDATOR FISH AND THEY RE ALL GROWING UP THEY RE ALL A YEAR OR TWO AND HALF YEARS OLD

THIS PLACE IS ALIVE WITH REDFISH RIGHT NOW <GUIDE> [HOOKUP] THERE HE IS <BLAIR> A LITTLE SNOOKIE <GUIDE> GOOD TO SEE SOME SNOOK AROUND RIGHT? <BLAIR> YEAH, NO KIDDING <GUIDE> THESE GUYS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN DOWN HERE NOW

Mirrolure Top Dog Trout Fishing Walk the Dog Technique

You know guys, one thing I do when I'm fishing for big trout whether it be Mosquito Lagoon, Louisiana, where ever there's big trout is, I will vary up my action like – it's not just a steady walk the dog a lot of times A lot of times I'll stop it and I wait to lure almost turns back the other way and then I'll give it a real quick jerk and what that sounds like is another fish eating and if you've ever seen, you know, a fish splashing on top like a little trout

if sometimes you look down below it you're going to see big trout coming up to eat those little trout so all I'm trying to do is imitate that If you see that plug there and hear that sound It sounds like it's going duk duk duk but that's how I big trout fish with Top Dogs One ofr my favorite baits in the world

Surf Fishing Guide for Bull Redfish | How To Catch Redfish – Surf fishing Tips!

this is my favorite time of the year the bull redfish are moving in close and closer to the beach they're going to be at the piers the jetties the passes honestly this is the best time of the year to catch a trophy bull wether it be a 40 inch or 45 or even 50s this being my favorite time of the year I wanted to make a video on how to catch bull redfish in the surf in this video I'm gonna discuss tackle gear leaders conditions baits time of the year and reading the beach so hope you learn some please enjoy one of the most important conditions and aspects surf fishing for redfish is wind there's three different types of winds there's a southeast wind south wind and an east wind those three different types of winds from one's gonna read bull ribs into the surf you see West Southwest Northwest anything west on the map don't even bother just stay home south and south and southeast winds are your average winds they bring in a steady amount of bull redfish in the surf depending on the wind mileage that's what's gonna tell you when to go out there if you see like a strong 10-20 mph south southeast wind go out there the surf is gonna be rough that's what they like fish an incoming tide if you fish an incoming tide you can fish a lot closer if you fish an outgoing tight I suggest to get on one of the bars and cast away past the 2nd gut I like to fish incoming tides now the optimal winds for surf fishing these bull redfish or east winds these winds are hard and heavy it bring up the tides the water is super big it's rough and bull redfish like rough water whenever you see a nice wind out there you need to get out there and if you tie that with a full moon at night around midnight or so that's when i've had the best luck geez you just you're gonna be catching all night and believe it or not, the biggest redfish i've caught what's on the east east wind rough east wind full moon and I landed a 50 inch bull redfish another thing that's really important it's not really talked about his barometric pressure redfish tend to eat when the barometric pressure rices quickly or drops quickly and most importantly what makes the Bull redfish run it's the first cold front of the fall so to sum up weather the best winds fish are east winds east south east winds north east winds average winds are south south east winds these winds if you see west on the map stay home north winds okay remember barometric pressure is also very important quick spikes quick drops and pressure ultimately in my opinion the best conditions to fish are a hard east wind on a full moon with rising pressure on a high tide that is to me in my opinion is the ideal conditions for bull redfish So after finding the perfect beach fishing conditions you got to get strategic you got to read the beach next reading the beach knowing how to read the beach is one of the most important aspects of surf fishing as well you gotta you gotta know where to cast you wanna cast past sandbars cast into guts through the cuts into holes all kinds of different locations to be successful the surf redfish should have different place to hang out it this is we're about to learn right now Gulf Coast beaches have a lot of structure there's first second and third sandbars there's guts there's also a weight good that you can cast into for bait so here's the first cut right here or what they call the wade gut here is where you get most of your bait, mullet whiting sand trout shad here and there and other things on a really high tide bull redfish will be running through the wade gut specifically during east winds where the tides are extremely high there will be plenty of redfish swimming through that wade gut so after the weight cut here's another apparent structure the first sandbar the first sandbar I use it to cast into the next gut most of the time when you're fishing with lures in this area there's a lot of redfish and trout that are hugging the edge of the sandbar most of the time while the tide is really high I like to get it on the first sandbar and cast past into the second gut which has passed a second sandbar all right let's move forward with the next structure the second sandbar the second sandbar is relatively hard to access you have to know how to swim and most importantly you have to wear a PFD to get to this bar that's second that that cut after the first sandbar can be up to six feet deep on an east wind it's probably eight feet deep big big bull redfish swim after the second sandbar I'm talking about like 40 and up bull redfish so basically the way to fish sandbars depends on your tides low tide you can get past the second bar on a very high tides wade gut first cut now beyond the second bar is the third bar it's it's not worth it to get out there that's beyond the breakers right there you can't stand on that bar you got to be like seven feet tall it's really really deep and it's just don't do it don't do it now let's talk about gear gear is one of my favorite parts of surf fishing in general I like to compare test and push all my gear to the limits as well as customize it when it comes to surf fishing you're gonna need some hardcore durable stuff make a handle salt water and sand let me go ahead and give you an example of the stuff that I use this is my custom daiwa saltist 20 on a 13-foot breakaway HDX the saltist is twenty is one of my favorite because it's basically been destructible for me has 17 pounds of drag and lmetal frame corrosion resistance ball bearings and a custom knobby mag the spool holds around 250 yards of 50 pound braid and I like to top it off with 10 yards of 65 lb shock leader so here in the market for a conventional reel this is what I look for drag power you really don't need anything over 20 pounds of bull redfish fight pretty hard but 20 pounds anything above that is too much now there are some to speed lever drugs out there that have 50 60 pounds of drag you don't need that they're expensive but if you got the money big baller go ahead and go from buy it another thing I look for is line capacity if you're using braids I like to use the smaller size reels like with the Daiwa 20s and the 30s be using mono that 20 or 30 they're gonna be way too small because mono is a lot thicker than braid when it comes to line capacity you're gonna at least eat 200 yards braids or mono here are my suggestions for a conventional surf reel the daiwa saltist, daiwa sealine, Shimano Torium, penn squal when it comes to surf fishing I like using all kinds of tackle including spinning reels I mainly like spinning reels because of their ease used and they're really simple to cast I use spinning reels for lures and also medium class surf fishing setups here's what I look for in a surf fishing spinning reel one of the most important things that look for in a surf fishing spinning reel is is it sealed the main reason you need a sealed reel is because of the rigorous tasks you're gonna put that surf fishing spinning reel through instead of go through some harsh elements sand salt water and all and big fish here's a list of common sealed reels the penn spinfisher long cast 7,500 the Daiwa black gold the Shimano spheros the Daiwa ballistic ex and also the tsunami shield the tsunami shield is definitely gonna give the spin Fisher and the BG Daiwa a run for their money another thing I look for in a surf fishing reel is gear ratio for soaking bait I look for lower ratio for more torque higher ratio less torque drag of course no less than 10 pounds a metal frame for durability and lack capacity like I said before at least 200 yards all right so this is my surf fishing spinning setup, this is a Shimano spheros 8 K on a nine foot daiwa coastal sp surf fishing rod the main reason I went with the Spheros is because first of all it was on sale at bass pro second of all as a sealed system sealed drag you know that has decent drag nice line capacity and look good yes aesthetics were nice I paired it on a daiwa coastal SP surf fishing rod the nine foot version I went with that rod because it was light and it has a lot of high-end components from only 150 bucks it hasn't let me down it's been able to reel in some big bull redfish 40s and forty fives all day the other reason I went with the Daiwa coastal sp surf fishing rod is because I asked tangle free guides it is very important that you get these guides so you prevent wind knots the next part when it comes to surf fishing gear are rods rods are a lot easier to select basically you go with an 8 foot up to a 13 foot surf rod if you're gonna be doing some light surf fishing like over the nine foot rod some of they can cast at least five ounces you're going hardcore I'd go with a 12 or 13-footer it all really depends what you're surf fishing for and how many Ounces are casting out alright next up is line a new surf fishing you need to use thicker line due to the abrasion from the sandbars all the wave action going back and forth will definitely tear up your lines on the long run I personally prefer braid over mono the reason why is because like I said I like smaller surf fishing reels braid is thinner gives you more capacity on my reels when I fish braids I like to use thirty pound on my light surf fishing set up specifically on my spinning setups I use 50 pound braid for my bigger conventional reel such as my daiwa saltist 20 30 my akios 757 with my bigger reels i use 65 pound braid when you fish with mono people we typically fish 17 a thirty pound test I got said before if you're gonna be fishing the smaller conventional reels you're gonna have to use 17 pound mono if you're using braids you can use whatever size you want except for 65 which is pretty thick now also on my conventional surf reels I use a shock leader I use 50 pound shock leader or 65 pounds on my smaller setups daiwa saltist 20 and 30 I use 50-pound Suffix Superior on my spinning setups I don't use a shock leader I don't feel like it's necessary on my spinning setups because they're a medium class surf fishing fishing setup when it comes to leaders I use three different types of leaders they use your standard fish finder rig I use the Carolina style shorter drum rig and I also use your standard Walmart double drop rig now the most popular surf fishing rig is the fish finder rig everybody uses it it's easy to make it's readily available most type of stores selling I like to use a 10 out demon circle hook on the other end here's another rig that I use this is the Carolina style drum rig the short version I don't see anybody in Texas really fish with this I think they're missing out I use this when I really really want to get some distance as a short lead and the way that it's built the way that it's made it seems to be easier to cast the way that I build this is basically a 10 on demon circle hook on the end attached with a Palomar knot to around 3 inches of fluorocarbon I usually record because it's invisible it's can you can barely see it in this picture that's right the redfish can't see it either then I attached it to a swivel this is a minimalist rig it requires very little Hardware less than other surf fishing rigs trust me less hardware is good using less hardware will equal more hookups you don't need to be using all this stuff the fish can see all your hardware whether you're using purple pink whatever but whatever color beads they can see it and plus we're trying to impress you trying to catch fish or you trying to impress your buddies which one fish or buddies now when it comes to weights this is a relatively simple concept if you have a hard core current you want to use the heavier spider weight six seven eight ounces depends on your rod also if you're using a hard core surf setup something I can handle a tin bait eight to 12 ounces and you would have to cast out a big weight spider weight preferably they hold down better into the sand they don't sit there and move here and there with the current on day so there's hardly any current you're all good with a fervid weight three to eight ounces whichever you like to use all right let's talk about bait bait is one of the next critical elements when it comes to surf fishing I use four different types of bait mullet shad sand trout and whiting there's other baits you could use crab croaker in fish I don't use those baits as much because they catch other fish that I'm trying to weed out at them when I'm fishing for bull redfish alright let's talk about mullet mola that's easily and readily throughout the surf you can also buy it almost every single bait store it's easy to get you cast at any single body of water you're probably gonna catch some mullet bullet it's most abundant late summer early fall when you're fishing for bull redfishwhen it comes to later in the fall in the winter all that it's not easily available it's not really good way to use during the these seasons alright let's talk about shed shad is almost everyone's favorite bait unfortunately it's not it's easy to access it's quite a rare commodity to be able to catch this and out in the wild most of the time you have to buy it not only is shad great bait it's also really really good to eat quite a delicacy shad is excellent bait during the summer and fall and late fall seasons when fishing for bull redfish unfortunately it doesn't last very long in a hook so many other fish like to eat it when you cast it out you could lose it when I surf fish with shad I usually just cast the whole thing out I'm being sheisty and cheap I'll cut it in half up Next is sand trout actually my favorite baits are used to fish with words you cannot get it at the bait store does not want you to know about this bait when used to life it is extremely panicky it tries to swim away from your hook which then gives it redfish or reactionary strike because it's wounded when fishing for sand trout for bait you have to catch them on lures and you lure they used to catch speckled trout with will work depending on the water conditions in the colors and clarity and you know all that good stuff I think sand trout is the best bait to surf fish for bull redfish in the summer and fall not so great in the winter because they are scarce throughout the surf always fish sand trout whole and alive right after catching if you cannot fish it alive fresh dead works good whiting is my next favorite bait whiting is absolutely the best bait to use during the winter months they're all over the surf to raise it a catch and they don't wanted a cook one you can also eat them like I said before redfish eat what's most abundant in the surf during these cold months that's what's in the surf big whiting tons of it with whiting I found myself surf fishing a more s cut bait rather than whole life to eat because when you catch a whiting they're either too small or they're really big I usually start to fish with whiting in late November all the way into February as long as the bull redfish around they're gonna eat whiting whiting are quite easy to catch basically you know I like one of my previous videos the way to catch whiting would be with a small pink piece of fish bites and a double drop rig and small hooks just basically cast out into one of the guts within a couple of minutes to have one or two whiting on there so to sum up bait mullet sand trout shad are great bait during summer all the way up to late fall once we hit winter you start getting 40 degree temperatures the water the water temperature drops below 70 and whiting becomes important and very abundant in the surf and that's what you're gonna use to catch bull redfish during the winter well that sums up my video on how to catch a redfish in the surf like comment subscribe let me know in the comments how you surf fish for redfish ultimately we all have the same goal and it's to catch the biggest redfish we can I want to learn – I want to learn your methods as well I like to try out different things hope this video helped go out there and catch a big one for me
