We came around the corner of a river and saw a most welcome sight: the flickering splashes of menhaden. It was the first time I had seen them this season and quickly netted up some for bait. The redfish loved them. At our first stop, Dave muscled in a sweet nine pound redfish. Used to freshwater lake fishing out West, it was the biggest fish he had ever caught! But things only got better as he went on the catch an 11 pounder who happily ate cut menhaden.
