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.

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.
