January is always interesting when trying to plan fishing trips due to the cold fronts that are on a weekly schedule. The day after the front can provide some amazing sight fishing with the bright blue skies and north wind that motivates the tide to recede even more than projected. Finding the depressions or holes on the flat are the key to targeting redfish and trout this month. Their main forage is mud crabs and shrimp and can easily me fooled with the proper presentation. Clouser minnows are hard to beat, tied in a wide variety of colors to imitate different forage. Leading the fish and working your fly on the bottom with a slow retrieve is essential.
