Several times since I have moved to Tampa I have found large school of redfish in a certain area. I have tried to fish them using artificial and cut ladyfish on multiple occasions with not even a bite. The reds either swam over my cut bait or fled quickly from my advancing artificial. Like I have said I have been working on my live bait game, netting greenbacks and all. Last week I tried my luck solo and ended up landing 14 redfish and 1 snook to my surprise. The largest Redfish was 34 1/2 inches pushing 12 pounds. Well this last Saturday I picked up a charter with Sean and Mary from Ocala. That’s a long drive for them and the pressure was on! I decided to go back to where I found the reds. Before I picked them up I netted some awesome sized greenbacks and was loaded down with bait. We went to the spot and within minutes we had landed a nice snook a few minutes later, another. I slowly moved around promising there were fish there and after a long wait we hooked up with a 31 inch redfish. From there is was a fish here and then there but I grinded it out knowing the fish were there. It was cloudy and made it difficult to find the fish. Other boaters came in but quickly left with no luck. After all was said and done, Sean and Mary landed 8 Redfish, and 3 decent snook. We also missed several other takes. Not bad for my first charter over here using live bait. If you would like to get out on the water with me please don’t hesitate to call I will work my hardest to put you on fish. Call or Text Capt.

“Our group had a blast with Capt. Casey. The boat was comfortable and had plenty of room to accommodate our group of 5. Very knowedgable, very friendly and great fisherman. The redfish and trout where great for dinner.”
