Another option

Everyone knows about the usual suspects when it comes to target species of the lower keys flats but in the last couple of years another has been making a much welcomed entrance, the redfish.

These fish have been a surprise bonus fish for a long time but recently they have become a fish that we can leave the dock with intent to target. I have also noticed that the size of the fish have increased along with the numbers. Redfish can be very willing to eat a fly or bait but can also do their best permit impersonation when they feel like it but, either way, I am happy to have them around.

We will see what happens over the next couple of years but hopefully the numbers will continue to increase, as well as the size. I know the big bulls are caught offshore in the gulf so lets just hope they start showing themselves in the shallows, as well.
