Lake Catherine Island Marina fishing report for the week of 18 September
As we are aware of, temperatures are starting to cool off. What does this mean? Fish are going to start getting ready for the fall extravaganza. Water temperatures have been in the mid to upper 80’s and bait, pogies, and shrimp are starting to show up.
My bait of choice, obviously since the shrimp are around, is live shrimp. Deeper holes on the bottom is still producing using a drop shot. Redfish have been tight tight on grass lines. So still using Four Horseman popping corks with a 2-foot leader. If you’re asking yourself why a 2-foot leader if im fishing tight to the grass? Well, the redfish are investigative fish and want to taste what they are eating, so the 2-foot leader is giving them a chance to pick the bait up and start to swim before the cork moves, therefor more hookups.
In addition, the sharks are out in full force. I’ve caught 37 so far. Fun fight!! Not much we can do about it except sit back and let them pull some drag.
Keeping an eye on the weather …. Winds, winds, winds !!!! Thats what we’ll be facing during the next couple of weeks as its that time of year. So check your weather forecasts before heading out.
I will be posting another Guides Fishing Report for Island Marina in about 2 weeks. So make sure you are following them on facebook for future reports.
Tight lines and “Make sure you leave one in the water for me”.
