Spring is the most inconsistent time of the year. The weather is all over the place and the wind is almost always blowing hard one direction or the other, but sometimes things come together. Most of this footage was captured a few weeks ago when a late season cold front blew through. I fished immediately before and after the front and the results were night and day.

Before the front the weather was fair, the winds were high, and the redfish were hard to spot because of high water levels. Post front the winds were light (for a small window), the skies were blue, and the redfish were piled up on top of each other due to the low water levels. Strong north winds that accompanied the late season front pushed a large amount of water out of the bays. The marsh was full of redfish gorging on all the bait fish that were now easy targets.
