What fishing technique do you apply?

Site casting is our specialty and our passion.

What is site casting?

“Site” casting is just what the name suggests.

It involves the craft of studying the water for tailing fish or disturbed bait fish and casting in that area.

When activity has been detected, the motor is shut down as you quietly troll along.  That’s the beauty of fishing in shallow waters. Many times Redfish are seen with their top fins clear out of the water!  A site caster’s style is to stay on the move; by finding the fish, rather than waiting for the fish to come to them.
