Redfish Fishing in Florida

Redfish
  • Size 3 to 12lbs
  • Food Value Good
  • Game Qualities Good
  • Habitats Inshore, Nearshore, Flats, Backcountry

(Sciaenops ocellatus)

Redfish are the most highly sought after inshore catch in the waters of Florida. Look for them in the bays and passes on the Gulf side, where they'll mostly be younger and easier to catch, or on the Atlantic side in rivers, estuaries and flats, if you're looking for a real fight.

They range anywhere from 15 and 34'' and from grunts weighing a couple of lbs to bulls exceeding the 20lbs mark. Anglers are allowed to keep one or two per person, depending on the zone caught.

Water temp is a very warm 90⁰ plus, so certain types of fish are not running and/or biting. Sarasota is still beautiful this time of year, so I would still recommend it.

Do your research for the time of year you are going to see what is in season. Unless you are a season fisherman, all things can be boat locally so you don't have to lug it around or you can rent equipment. Alvin's island store is your friend.

We were pleased with our catch, but spring and fall would likely be better times for bass.
