THe Redfish is characterized by its reddish or bronzed body with a white bottom, a sloping head and rounded beak. Generally has one to a couple of spots near the tail.

These fish are found in almost all Florida waters, but as a rule tend to be found in shallow, grassy or rocky waters both along the coast and inland on the flats. Will venture into the deeper waters and as well up the rivers and streams along the coast.

Live or dead shrimp, baitfish and crabs make the best natural bait, while spoons, plastic jigs, topwater lures, poppers and streamers are the best artificial bait.
