Default Fort Myers Red

Came home to visit my family for the holidays and got out on the flats for some reds. It was way too windy so they werent tailing and were very hard to spot cruising but we found a few behind some mangrove island cover that were tailing. I hooked two, one spit the hook and this one I landed. Beautiful fish!

Nice! I might be in Tampa next week visiting my wife's family. If I go, it'll be a fishing trip for me. After freezing weather for a month, I MUST fish!

Now that is cool! Catching Reds in the winter and you don't even have to layer up with everything you own to stay warm! Keep the photos coming they are great!

I grew up south of New Orleans and redfish & speckled trout where a staple on the table. We kept the smaller (under 5#) ones for the table, sold, returned or gave away the large ones. Nothing wrong with the big ones, just preferred the small.

How are they when it comes to filleting, lots of bones or are they an easy clean?
