Santa Rosa Sound Redfish

The morning of 3-10-14 greeted me with sunny skies, light north winds & temps in the mid 60’s. Even though the feeding charts had the day listed as poor, the conditions were ideal & had high hopes.




After a very pleasent 20 minute pedal I arrived at the spot I planned to fish. I was nearly immediately rewarded with this 19′ beauty.

After another fish in the 20″ range I moved to my next spot & found exactly what I was looking for.



A pair of hungry twins.



The water in the Sound is still a bit stained. The singles & pairs are spooky, but catchable with a stealthy presentation. The schools or small groups of fish relating to structure are more approachable generally feeding aggressively.

Get out there while the water is still cool & enjoy the happy Redfish of Santa Rosa Sound.

  1. Going to retire end of June and hope to be in PB in Sept. Benn wanting to start fly fishing from a kayak and my research showed the Hobie to be the ticket. A charter with you would be a great way to start my new endeavor. Look forward to it, I will be in touch when travel is finalized. Tight lines.

    • Hey Austin, I would love to get you out on the water. Fly fishing is one of my most dear passions. Hobie kayaks are the perfect platform. Feel free to give me a call to book your trip. Tight lines
