Jose Wejebe shows how to choose a rod and reel combo

Here’s a cool video on Jose Wejebe’s website for selecting the right flats fishing outfit. I found it very helpful and wanted to share.

Banana River on Spanish Fly TV with Jose Wejebe

Speaking of Derek and Alden Redwine they will be on an upcoming episode of Spanish Fly with Captain Jose Wejebe. I’m told the show revolves around raising their child on the water and teaching him all about the local marine life, they even catch a few nice fish.

I’m looking forward to the new Spanish Fly season.

12/28/08 Sun. 9:30AM – Cape Canaveral Florida 

In the shadow of NASA Space center, a family raises their child in an area known as “Old Florida”.

Join the Redwines as they teach their son Alden all about “ urban nature” and fishing in the backyards canals and shorelines of the Indian and Banana Rivers. It is here where young Alden and his teenage mentor Antanas learn that Snook, Redfish and yes, even Catfish are the means to the end of learning all about the home waters of their neighborhood.

1/04/09 Sun 9:30AM – Boca Piala, Mexico

In the state of Quitana Roo on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is a small fishing lodge built in 1959. Located in the heart of the Sian Kaan Ecological Reserve, Boca Paila Fishing Lodge sounds like a sun drenched tropical paradise …..right?

Not so much when a series of tropical weather systems bring torrential rain , wind and squalls though the area, the fishing gets… well…soggy! Not the kind of weather for sight fishing on the flats, however, if you don’t mind getting wet and changing your tactics, there is almost always something to do to catch Bonefish, Snook and even Permit in this unusual ocean meets lagoons transitional area.

1/11/09 Sun 9:30AM – Christian Goodpaster

Make A Wish, Key West, Florida

The shallow water flats of the “backcountry“ is the stage set for a young man with a double lung transplant to catch some fish and tell of his struggle with Cystic Fibrosis. Christian Goodpaster and Jose Wejebe met some 10 years ago when the Make a Wish foundation put them together in Islamorada.

Join our friends as they hunt the big three of the Grand Slam, a Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon, as well as a few surprise fish on the flats behind Key West and Sugarloaf Key.

Winter redfish in Brevard County

Redfishing on the Space Coast.

When the East Coast waters cool many redfish school up in local canal systems of the Indian and the Banana River. A little patience and exploration you should be able to find plenty of redfish action. Most of these redfish will be smaller then the slot limit but will keep many a young one occupied. Here is a recent trip Brandon McGraw took Alden and Derek Redwine on to fish for some schooled up  redfish. Live shrimp and Berkley Gulps fished on jigs accounted for the most bites.
