Some New Species to Fish For?
« on: September 15, 2022, 10:08:08 AM »
Where I live now there is a monstrous body of water called the Intra-Coastal Waterway (ICW). There is a public launch located less than 2 miles from my house!

The ICW is saltwater, so there are no LMB or SMB in it. But there is a massive population of Red Drum (Redfish).

Redfish behave much like LMB and can be caught on many of the same baits as LMB, including topwater baits  :yes:

My wife and I both have bought kayaks since moving here, so now that the weather is starting to cool down a tad I might spend some time pursuing these fish. They look like a blast for sure!

Here's a sample of the action!
