We will launch at Cedar Point Boat Ramp. The low tide is at 2:15 PM. The best fishing is going to be 2 to 3 hours before the low tide and 2 hours of the incoming tide. If you fish the incoming tide that will put you on the water close to dark so I would concentrate on fishing starting 3 hours before low tide. I would launch between 10:30 – 11:00 AM. This will give you time to get to the spot you want to fish so you will have at least 2 hours of falling tide to fish. Many flies work well for Red’s at low tide. Crab, Shrimp and Clousers are all good patterns. 6 to 8 weight rods with WF Floating line are good. I use a 9 ft. leader with a 12-15 pound tippet. With this colder weather the Reds may be in schools and if they are they may be harder to find but when you find them, there will be a lot of them.
Check out the mouths of creeks and around oyster bars. If you do not know the area, get with me either the day of the outing or give me a call. Because of the 2:15 tide it is going to be too late for breakfast and too early for lunch, so I will pick up some sub sandwiches for lunch. If you do not have a boat and need a ride let me know as soon as you can and I will try and find you someone to go with.
