Most of the redfishing is done by sight casting.
Both guide and angler work as a team. The guide
is on the platform push poling the boat along,
taking the angler to the fish. It is a very visual
thing, from the birds, the clear water, the
landscape, to a large redfish grubbing in just
inches of water. Being on the deck of a skiff
moving along quietly through the water, is the only
way to experience it.
Redfish are available year round. They are a
hardy fish, able to tolerate the highest summer and
lowest winter temperatures. Big schools of redfish
show up during late summer months to early
spring. Seeing a hundred tailing or pushing redfish
is an awesome sight. Smaller groups and single
fish remain a target just about any given day. They
can be found over clear white sand, tailing in thick
grass, or laying in shallow mud pools.
