Banner Day Of Fishing In A Spot I Found In A New State [Fishing Report]

On my first trip fishing in a new state, I had a BANNER DAY!!!

If you are new to Salt Strong, my name is Pat Ogletree and I travel around the southeast United States making videos and fishing reports for Salt Strong Insider Members.

My latest destination was in the state of Virginia and I had never been up there, so naturally, I never fished in the state.

Don’t miss this catch footage!!

A goal of mine when fishing in a completely new area is to locate schools of bait or any bait activity in the area.

As I was sitting and thinking about picking up and moving spots, a redfish slowly moved across the sand to the left of me.

So I put my stick anchor in the sand and threw out the F.R.E.D. paddletail.

It didn’t take long for the drag to start screaming!!

I was fishing in clear water and these redfish couldn’t get enough of the F.R.E.D.

Thereafter I was getting bitten on every other cast

It almost started to become surprising if I didn’t hook into a fish!

The F.R.E.D. paddletail ended up being the ultimate ticket to reeling in these fish all day long.

I did have some success on the Strike King KVD Wake Bait as well.

The Wake Bait is an excellent search lure you can use to cover more ground and call curious fish in to have a look.


These are the days you dream of as a fisherman.
