The most consistent year-round catch in Boca Grande Florida is the redfish. One of the prized fish species targeted in Florida, redfish have a reputation for being willing to bite almost anything and for fighting tenaciously when hooked.
Redfish are fun to catch and good to eat. No wonder they are such a popular target in Boca Grande. Redfish tend to travel in schools, some reaching into the hundreds, or even thousands, meaning multiple strikes, multiple hookups and multiple catches. There is nothing like having every pole on the boat in action at once.
In the winter months, redfish tend to congregate inshore in the shallower waters of the shorelines, river mouths and mangroves. In the spring, as things warm up, so does the action with redfish moving out into the flats to feed and congregating in huge numbers during the summer peak, when the action is hottest.
On the flats where redfish have room to run anglers can be in for a mighty tug of war battle as these tenacious bull-headed brutes show just how much stamina they have. It is these hard-fighting attributes that make targeting redfish in Florida one of the most fun and popular charter fishing adventures.
The crystal clear waters of the grass flats makes for amazing sight fishing opportunities during the summer peak. Sightfishing for redfish is on every backcountry angler’s must do list. It has become such a popular target species that redfish tournaments are popping up throughout the year in the Tampa Florida, St. Petersburg FL, Tarpon Springs FL, and Boca Grande FL area.
Redfish can be targeted with live, cut or artificial bait. Sardines, shrimp, squid, or lures, redfish are not picky when they are ready to strike. They are known for aggressive strikes and will take practically any lure. On light tackle, nothing is more fun.
