There are still a lot of nice fish around. Me and my friend Jim farmed a few this morning, but they ate the fly and were easily cast to and sight-cast as these fish worked along the beach. The upcoming negative weekend tides starting on Sunday morning should get them going early in the am. If you haven’t put a corbina on your tick list, I would get out there sooner than later as the summer window will slowly begin to close as we approach the fall.

Fellow angler and good pal, Larry Acord showing us how it’s done this morning by sight casting to and landing this beautiful early morning corbina. We were fishing a new area that has been holding some big fish. This fish was tailing in shallow water when Larry made a nice cast and watched her chase down his fly (razzler) He set up on her and let her make a long run. After adjusting his drag and taking his time she was slid up on the beach. She was revived and released to taunt other corbina anglers in the future, like me! LOL… It’s been great fun fishing with my friends and watching them land corbina, which are tough fish to fool on flies….. Nice one Larry!

Qs red pelagic crabs…

Sat down last night and knocked out a few simple Q red pelagic crab flies for some offshore fly fishing. These crabs are everywhere right now and make up a large source of protein for many pelagic species.
These are really easy to tie, you just need to prepare your materials ahead of time.
What I mean is the fly is very easy to assemble once you have the proper materials. For instance, my buddy Denny powder-coated some Flymen Flyfishing Sculpin Heads (small) for me, I pre-made, hand cut my claws with clear silicone/red ep fibers and had some EP shrimp eyes, or you can make your own? I am using a 3/0 “secret” hook that I am field testing, but any good hook will work providing you can get the sculpin head to fit the diameter of the shaft. The rest of the materials are red wool, barred orange/black sili-legs and orange krystal flash for (antenna). It’s a realistic yet simple fly that gets the job done…hope you like?

“It is a post like this that truly makes me smile, way to go Larry, what a magnificent redfish, a fish of a lifetime!”

Just a quick note and “thank you” for the info, teaching and coaching.  The tips I have picked up on your site and  in person at LBCC has helped me advance pretty fast in the game.  I am hooked “OndaFly” and got into the game four years ago. I love the salt.  Here is a pic from last Friday in Venice Louisiana in 2 feet of water on the Gulf.
