Capt. Mitchell Blake caters to lure and fly-fishermen. In addition to big Yo-Zuri pencil poppers, Darters and Zara Spooks, Blake arms his clients with redfish lures such as the D.O.A. or Z-Man swimbaits rigged with up to 30 inches of 40-pound leader and ¼-ounce jig heads with 8/0 hooks. The soft-plastic lures are run behind a Blabber Mouth plastic popping cork to create commotion. Using his trolling motor, Blake targets the sandy shoals, contour lines and bait schools. "I tell my clients to make the longest casts they can, let the lure hit the bottom, and rip it back up before letting it drop again so it yo-yos through the water column," Blake says.
