Redfish in the Bay
Poling a skinny water skiff, Capt. Justin Leake and Capt. Steve Bachman target redfish in the backwater flats with topwater and weedless jig baits. Ron Barwick of Half Hitch demonstrates state-of-the-art reel repair using ultrasonic equipment. Local guide Daniel Snapp joins Justin for some clear water fishing where the challenge is seeing the fish before they spook. Champion tournament angler Fred Myers shows the proper way to measure redfish and explains how live release tournaments help the fishery. Justin and Fred enjoy steamed flounder at Boon Docks Restaurant on the West Bay waterfront.
