Redfish in Tampa Bay’s inshore waters make great catches for anglers regardless of experience. You’ll find the largest of these feisty and formidable fish inshore and nearshore. A relative of the Black Drum, Redfish have a unique ability to smell their prey, as opposed to relying solely on sight.
Redfish make great catches, and they’re one of the most popular game fish in Tampa. They can weigh up to 12 pounds and live for 40 years, and these fish are prime fighters. You’ll never see a dull moment during your search for these magnificent creatures. You can now experience Redfish fishing charters in Tampa Bay with Aquatic Escapes.
Redfish Fishing Basics
Catching Redfish is a breeze when you know where to look, how they search for prey, and what they like to eat. Redfish like to stay in underwater grass, and you’ll find them easy to spot in shallow waters, depending on the tide. Redfish like to eat shellfish but won’t hesitate to take a chunk off a larger fish that passes by them.
Depending on the location, Redfish range in size from 14 to 35 inches long. Bigger and more mature Redfish prefer deeper waters, while younger fish breed in shallow water.
