Redfish Fishing in Florida

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.

"Great Time catching RedFish"

John Sciarabba fished with Out-Cast Fishing Charters LLC on September 11, 2020

From greeting us at the dock, to making sure we had enough bait, throughout the day until we returned, Cap’n Josh did everything he could to ensure we had a great trip. The Redfish wore us out before we exhausted the bait but we got the best of them with some cooking tips from Cap’n Josh.
