The redfish bite has quickly been improving as we move along into mid March. On a recent trip with Capt. Mike Herzog of Rip N Lip Charters we set out to target redfish in Pine Island Sound. There have been several large schools of reds hanging along the outer islands in 2′ – 4′ of water. Fishing has been best near small pot holes and mottled bottom.

During this day’s trip, we managed to catch nearly 20 redfish on live baits. It was a very quick bite, offering several doubles and even a triple hookup while photographing the catch! The best fishing has been during the middle to end of the incoming tide.

If your interested in targeting these redfish, make sure to reach out to Capt. Mike Herzog to book your trip today.
