Thread: Spooky Redfish in Florida

    Default Spooky Redfish in Florida

    I flyfished with a guide near Titusville, Florida. Fun trip!
    I cast to many Redfish, Black Drum, stingrays, seatrout, hardhead catfish, and 1 sheepshead.


    Most had already spooked by the time we saw them, and weren't about to strike a fly. I hooked 2 Redfish and landed one of them.


    I dropped flies to a number of Hardhead Catfish, but the only one that hit was on a longer cast, and I didn't know the fish was there.


    I also caught a small Spotted Seatrout and foul-hooked a Stingray that swam over the top of my fly.
    Saw dolphins, manatees, and gators, including this big one that was laying on the bottom before swimming away:

    I didn't catch much, considering the effort and time...but I really enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing the great fishing in your state with the rest of us.

    jwred is the only guy I have ever had on my skiff to catch a hard head catfish on fly! Thus the nicknake, "Catfish Johnny"!
