Multiple Inshore Flats Fishing Slam’s

Rich Knox - 10/07/2012

Absolute Florida Flats Fishing and Guide Service ran several fishing charters this past week, producing multiple inshore fishing slam’s. Snook , Redfish, Trout and many more species were feeding heavily on the return of the summer bait-fish spawn. Capt. Rich Knox had the pleasure of Rod and Chris Rahn from Pennsylvania, soon to be Florida full-time residents. Between the two, they carded six inshore fishing slam’s, (Snook, Redfish, Trout) same day, most of the fish were keeper size, the key is to cast– net up a bait-well full of pilchard’s in the morning, some for the hook and some to live chum with. Using light tackle spinning gear spooled with 8-10 lb. braid, line to line connection 25 lb. fluorocarbon leader of about 3′ in length,  finished with a Gamakatsu 1/0 live bait hook.  Fishing a 1/2 day fishing guide  trip, the fish didn’t seem to mind weather the tide was incoming or outgoing. We methodically fished the Tarpon Springs to New Port Richey inshore flats, and didn’t get much of a break other than a short boat ride to our next destination. These excellent conditions should only improve, with a little cooler weather, October,  my favorite fishing month !
