Now’s the time! These searching for alternatives to catch massive Redfish; now could be the time! FWC opened Redfish for harvest this month on September 1st. the restrict is one per particular person with a most of two Redfish per vessel with a slot measurement of 18-27 inches in size. Large ‘Bull-Reds’ will likely be right here anytime this month and all through October fattening up for his or her November-December migration again to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. ‘Bull-Reds’ spend the cooler months of winter in deeper waters offshore, leaving the fry’s and smaller fish in our shallow estuaries. The ‘Bull-Reds’ is not going to possible return till this similar time subsequent 12 months. They gained’t keep right here a lot later than mid-to-late November, so now could be the time for a ‘Redfish of a lifetime’.
These massive fish are hungry and can eat synthetic displays in addition to reside and lifeless reduce baits. I take advantage of synthetic displays from a wide range of producers akin to; Mirr-O-Lure, Bomber and Rapala for prime water, twitch and crank bait. I take advantage of Gulp and Zman for smooth plastics, scented or unscented. Gold spoons are very efficient. Some anglers have their favorites, however the reality of the matter is, all of them will work. Nevertheless, ‘tenacity’ is the simplest ‘lure’ available on the market. Use reside or reduce displays (giant shrimp, reduce Pinfish and Ladyfish) below a popping cork or on backside for extra bites in comparison with synthetic lures. Often, I ‘wish to free-line’ reside Pilchards and Pinfish.
I wish to fish on excessive tides for entry to distant again nation areas with Mangroves, oyster beds and widgeon grasses. Pictured listed here are a few the massive Redfish caught by me and a buddy of mine from Naples, Mr. Davis Hasson utilizing reside baits on a excessive tide within the again nation. Good job Davis!
