Events and Information / Cedar Bayou Redfish Study
« Last post by MikeF on January 23, 2015, 01:35:43 PM »
Center for Sportfish Science and Conservation


The Center for Sportfish Science and Conservation has surgically implanted several redfish with tracking technology as part of the Cedar Bayou study. Each of these fish is marked with a green external dart tag. Please release these fish if caught and call the phone number on the tag to let researchers know where you caught the fish and to add valuable movement information to their study! If you decide to keep a tagged fish or if the fish dies in the process of being caught, please keep the black cylindrical acoustic tag implanted in the fish and call (361) 825-2028. This research is heavily dependent on the cooperation of local anglers, and your support is greatly appreciated!

I just spoke with Don and the bayou is currently out of its banks and blown out. I'm hoping that by next weekend, things will have returned to normal. We don't have any rain forecast, so that should help. We will keep everyone posted and likely call it yea or nay by Thursday. I'm betting things will be fine, but I just want to keep folks apprised of what's going on.

Tight lines!

My white bass launch for Stupor Brawl Sundae is out of commision.   :(

And TB PGC is operating at one generator 24/7.  Too much flow to be comfortable in a kayak.

Looking for another back-up plan.

How does Sommerville look?

Awesome stuff. I'm headed to Grand Isle with Scott Null 2/5-2/7 and then again 2/20-2/22.

Can't wait to get those big bastards on the hook.

I used a 9wt redington RS4, Rio Coldwater Outbound Floating Line, tapered 20lb leader and the fly was one of the guide's creations - all black with a rabbit strip tail and lead eyes. Was tied very well as the same single fly landed all the fish.

Brent used a 8wt Sage Salt, Rio Bonefish line, same 20lb tapered leader and another guide fly - lead eyes, chartreuse rabbit strip tail and puglisi fiber brush body (with rubber legs) in root beer. Same fly used on all fish too.

Guide recommends using 30lb straight mono as a leader.

I should add that all but one of the fish came from 20-30ft chip shots from the boat. Almost no long casting was needed. Some ate within a rod length of the boat.

Contact details are on the website - I just called them

Great job!

The picture must weigh 10 pounds....

Flies?
Rods?
Contacts? (Yes, I see the link)

Your public wants to know.

I may have to add this one to my guided trips next year.
