Default Huge Redfish on Topwater Action

My bro and his girlfriend took a trip to Florida to do a little fishing. They caught a bunch of huge redfish in the morning. Bluefish, flounder, etc. in the after noon. Sounds fun wish i could have went.

Mighty fine reds. And I would give anything for a good mess of bluefish right now. Tell your bro I envy him.

WE, we used to catch bluefish off the surf on the east coast when I was growing up. What fighters they are. Even small blues (snapper) on light tackle were a kick. Pound for pound one of the best fighting fish in the water.

Ive seen some big pods of redfish, but those pics take the cake. wow. I wouldnt know where to start.

One time near Melbourne, FL i saw a large group of redfish sitting in one spot when the tide was running out in about 20 foot of water. the water was very clear, and you could see the fish moving around and picking up silver dollar sized blue crabs washing out of the weeds floating in the current. I put on a mask and dove off the boat, and it was really cool to watch them from underneath while they fed. I tried to pick up some on the flyrod, but had no takes that day. my GF at the time did manage to hook a nice one of about 15 lbs on a live crab though, it was a great time...gotta love those reds...
