Henry is fishing with old friend, Captain Rennie Clark in the backwaters of the Cape River, in North Carolina, an area renowned for its fantastic Redfish and Striped Bass fishing. As they cruise in the Boston Whaler along a reed lined channel, Rennie is the first to strike hooking into a good sized Redfish, just 5 mins after starting fishing. In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Redfish or Red Drum as its actually the official State fish of North Carolina, which currently holds 10 of the 16 world records for it. Back to the action, its Rennie who catchs the 2nd fish of the day too, with another chunky Redfish coming to the boat. There's some great information in the episode about locating Redfish and the signs to look out for to find feeding Reds. Henry finally gets into a nice Red before introducing his Tip of The Week where he modifies a Livetarget Shrimp Lure to make it totally weedless. This is the lure that's doing the damage today as its perfect in this kind of backwater habitat.
