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.
