Red Fish Fishing Charters – Fort Myers & Sanibel

The legal limit for this fish in Florida is one 18 – 27 inch Red fish daily.

Red fish are quite obviously named for their body color which has a copper hue and generally one spot just before the tail. Although these fish can grow to be up to 90 pounds, they are usually only caught up to the 15 pound size, because larger fish have a very strong taste and the meat tends to be quite coarse.

Tasty Red Fish!

on a Fishing Charter with Capt. Clarence Reed

We catch Red fish all year round, but the fall is the best time to catch them. They call it Red October and this is when we get large schools of Red fish, which are so much fun to catch and great to eat as well. Red fish are great fighters with a lot of stamina, they never seem to give up.

There are many different ways to catch them too, which mostly depends upon how aggressive they are. Typically, I’ll try and get them to eat live pilchards along with some live chum, but if they don’t want that, I’ll use pinfish and cut bait such as fresh ladyfish or mullet. Red fish are challenging to catch at times and that is why I enjoy the test to catch Red fish. Truly a fantastic fish all around as a challenge and they provide a bulldogging fight and great table fare. Let us put you on some Red fish the next time you’re in the Fort Myers, Sanibel area.
