Global Warming is Real

Ralph and I had a great day fishing with Daniel from Z-Man Fishing on Sunday.  The weather we have had so far this winter is crazy.  Two days after Christmas and the water is 69F.  I’m not sure the fish know what pattern they are supposed to be in any more than we do.  We had a memorable thing happen – we happened upon a group of four or five redfish happily tailing as if it was July.  After one swing and miss, a second try yielded a great hookup and fish landed by Daniel – on December 27th.   Unbelievable!  Daniel is fishing a Z-Man PaddlerZ rigged weedless with a Phillips Custom rod.  This rod is a split grip Tennessee handle with recoil guides.  He has paired it with a Shimano Ci4 1000 spinning reel.  Here is a photo sequence and video of the catch.  Enjoy!
