Copano Bay Kayak Fishing Spot For Redfish High Tide

hey what's going on everybody today i

was fishing copano bay

uh close to bayside and these little set

of uh back lakes over here

with that storm coming through through

the gulf and passing us up

the last couple days it's got a couple

feet of extra water

in the bays and in the back lakes and

all this area that you see

that's green looking is normally you


a foot above the water this this

back lake over here is about the

shallowest back lake i know of

so i figured i'd check it out and see

what's going on with all that extra

water and

i got in there and you couldn't see any

land you know anywhere so uh

it's what they call a flood tide when

when it's a couple feet higher

you know or when it's real high all

those reds were

were sitting on top of this grass this

area i marked is where i is what i

fished and uh

did really really good today um it was

right at a triple limit i kind of lost

count but

started off with the topwater i caught a

couple on the topwater

made several good casts to some reds

with the top water

and they they just didn't want to hit it

again so i put this soft plastic on

right here

it's about a quarter ounce weedless uh

weedless hook

and i was just running it across the top

of that grass

i was seeing i mean tons the most amount

of reds i think i've ever seen

were just all in here so i was throwing

i could see their tail i could see their

backs out of the water

and i could see down in the water and i

made some cast

to some some reds that i actually seen

you know

down in the water and caught a few like

that too so

i was just swimming it across that grass

and giving it a couple of bumps and

when i knew i brought it right in front

of a red i would let it sink for a

second to get it down

you know closer to where his mouth was


they would hit it almost every time so

but today is just a reminder of why i

love kayak fishing

you you can't really get into stuff like


any other way i guess you could wade in

there if you wanted to

but um yeah i had to push

you know and drag through through a lot

of that grass and to get to

the reds but everywhere i looked man

there were tails and uh wakes and

it was it was amazing so i was using a


that my buddy gave me a while back jose

it's called chicken

and i don't normally use scents but i

said well you know i'm using soft

plastics today let's try it out

um i didn't ever test another lure

without it on there

uh i i just kept using it and and it


it worked today so today is another one

of those awesome days

that that i don't see

that often you know i mean i have some

good days but not like this

and this was this was pretty insane

today so

is in here today

it's where they should be with this high



my line touched him they don't like that

there's some over there golly dude it

doesn't matter where i go i just keep

finding them

all right y'all so it kept going on like


uh i caught three or four more nice reds

um lost a couple also this spot

um you can it's right next to the boat

ramp you can put you can put in right


i always put in right here some people

put in at the boat ramp

but i try not to because there's usually

a boat it's kind of a tight little boat

ramp so

i usually put in right here by the

bridge so um

this area is not any usually not any

good with low

on a low tide there's usually no water

in there so

but on a real high tide this this place

was on fire today
