There probably is not an easier time to locate reds than the month of October. Waters clean up, rivers drop and red fish flourish. Water temperatures begin to cool and red fish begin to herd up like cattle. We spend a lot of time while waiting on the speckled trout to settle in chasing reds in shallow duck ponds before duck season starts. River levels are usually at season low numbers and duck ponds near them filter out river water into crystal clear water. This the time of year where when we run into a red in the back of a cove or a slew and it is rarely just one, most of the time it is a school of five or ten or Enron more. Another thing we see this time of year is red fish riding the back of stingrays and as you see in this video, sometimes it is entire schools of them. I know you are probably just as tired of seeing red fish as we are and eager to get on some easy speckled trout action but make it easy on yourself right now and play the hand you are dealt and catch easy schooling red fish right now. Once water temps hit 75 degrees out focuses will pivot to trout so shallow water reds will be safe for a while. Make sure to watch this awesome Dockside TV using Matrix Craws in a crystal clear pond full of red fish.
