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.

What People Are Saying About Redfish Fishing in Florida

"Half day trip with Captain Travis Rupe "

Rick Gladish fished with Skinny Waters Adventures on February 23, 2020

My wife and I had a great trip with Captain Travis. He put us on fish very quickly and was great to fish with—knowledgeable, patient, and easy to talk to. We also loved his boat and the ability to get to water that other boats could not. We caught several really nice Redfish and a couple of Snook. We had a blast!

"Inshore Slam"

Rick Klotz fished with Indigenous Charters on February 5, 2020

Captain Tyler did a great job on a mostly slow day. We caught Snook, Redfish and one Trout for the slam. He had bait ready to go when we got there and the equipment was good. He;s got a good personality and sense of humor. We would definitely use him again.

"Capt DJ knows his stuff"

Mike Kalmanson fished with AARedfishFelicity LLC - Chokoloskee on January 21, 2020

Capt DJ works his butt off for you. Pleasant person who's also professional. Knows where the fish are at especially Redfish

"3/4 Day Trip with Captain Brad"

Richard Minero fished with Water Time Inshore Fishing on January 10, 2020

Another great day fishing with Captain Brad! I got 15 fish today including Jacks, Spanish Mackerel, a couple Lady Fish and also hit the Grand Slam with Snook, Redfish and Trout! My daughter had 10 fish today including Redfish, Trout, Jacks and Spanish Mackerel. Captain Brad is very professional, a genuinely great guy and always gets you catching fish. Highly Recommend him!

"Full day Trip. "

James Gordon fished with Light Tackle BackCountry Redfish on December 26, 2019

Captain Merrell worked very hard. Used live bait for Redfish and Speckled Trout. Overall very good experience. Caught many fish including two big redfish. Recommend as a 1 person trip.

"Capt. Brown"

Claude Tatro fished with AJ Brown Charters on December 7, 2019

He knows the waters and works hard for a good trip. Enjoyed my time. Redfish and trout rigs. This was my second trip with Capt. Brown and I think if you are in Cedar Keys this is an opportunity to go out with a local who knows the waters. Lots of undersized reds but he put me on one from a honey hole that was a keeper before we headed in.
