Redfish are On the Bite !

Redfish are the battle-cruisers of inshore fish… Tough and scrappy, just what you need for a great fight while on your fishing charter. Like most of the fish here, we catch them in both deep and shallow water, sometimes so shallow their back is actually out of the water. Sanibel Island Redfish FishingI can usually spot them up on the shallows with their tails sticking up as they feed, like the one in the photo. We silently crept up with the trolling motor, and my customer, Mark, got to cast directly to the fish. We actually watched this Redfish eat the bait, and then proceed to give Mark an incredible drag-screaming fight.

Redfish are here year-round, and can often be found in schools that provide some great non-stop action.
