June usually brings calmer conditions than the previous months before, which will create improved opportunities for catching trout and redfish in a variety of ways. Fishing with top-water on shorelines and around shallow sand bars will produce trout and redfish, especially when winds die down. If a bunch of fish bite the top-water early in a place, then stop once the sun raises further over the horizon, it’s usually possible to keep catching by switching to soft plastic and throwing them in a little deeper water. Fishing from the boat along grassy edges, deep potholes and around rocks on shorelines with deep water close by also works great in June. Since the water is so clear lately, it’s possible to throw soft plastic on the edges of potholes and around rocks without getting hung up too often. During the middle of the bright days, sight casting options for trout and redfish also present themselves regularly.
