Tag: Best locations for catching weakfish
Ed Teise was targeting weakfish (understatement) when he caught this tide-runner. Ed scheduled this week for vacation, to hunt for weakfish. He put it all together, water temperature,tide, spot, ect.. The last piece of the puzzle was the lure. Most of the time, he only needs 2% of the lures in his tackle bag. Not tonight.. Ed could see that the weakfish were not interested in his lure. He reached around his tackle bag, for a lure he seldom uses, and sure enough. There is a locale weakfish tournament running, so the lure ? The weakie hasn’t been weighed in yet. My guess is 8 pounds plus.
Tide runner weakfish in September
Finding big weakfish in the fall can cause insomnia for me. Big weakfish will not hold in one spot for long this time of the year. I will usually fish every tide until they move on. Sure enough, this pod of fish only held for a few days. Now I can catch up on sleep and a few responsibilities, before the hunt begins again.
