Photo Essay: 32″ Redfish On Fly, in Rockport Texas

Mason did a ssnapshotTakeover for Flylords at the beginning of August, and absolutely crushed the story. He wanted to follow up with some words about his trip, and a nice Redfish the boys landed in some murky conditions…

Monday morning we dropped the skiff in the water and headed south to San Jose island near Rockport Texas in hopes of finding clear water due to the high winds. We arrived at the island and found redfish tailing in clear water over grass and sand. There were blue crabs all over the place so we matched the hatch with a small tan EP (Epoxy) crab fly. The first fish we saw inhaled the small crab fly and the fight was on. Throughout the day we found fish all over the flat with numerous hook ups. The highlight of the day was when we sight casted a nice 32in redfish around noon which headed for deep water and went into the backing on my 6wt Hardy in no time. After getting the fish to hand we snapped a few pictures and headed in for a burger at POPS.

If anyone is interested in booking a trip email he can accommodate up to two anglers on his Maverick HPX-T and does both fly fishing and light tackle sight fishing out of Rockport and Port O’Connor Texas.

Thanks again Fly Lords we look forward to next time!
