I have buddies who are "normal sized" and can stand while drifting across flats to spot fish and cast to them. As a big guy, I am forced to stay seated and be as stealthy as possible as I scoot through the shallows looking for signs of redfish. Recently on a solo outing I made it happen and it was more rewarding than I had anticipated. I guess after a hundred mud boils where the fish saw me before I could see them, it would naturally feel pretty good to hook them on the fly. The first red was 28" and the second 25.5". The sight of a big bronze back above the waterline cruising toward me in hunt mode was really cool. Presenting a big Clouser and having him eat it was even cooler.
