The Game Is Chess, Not Checkers!
Last weeks solid schedule saw some explosive fishing for Redfish in the shallow back lakes of Matagorda Island. It was a “limit run” amidst some of the most challenging conditions you can find there. Leaward grass lines produced well in tough low water circumstances along with the very few depressions, swales, cuts, outer lakes, and sloughs also playing a part from time to time. An intensive amount of fishing can bring one “uncomfortably familiar” with our scaled counterparts. The mental game can play a big part on the water, more so when conditions are less than ideal. Last week, the mental game played out on a grand scale, the game was Chess, not Checkers.
