Targeting redfish in shallow water is a lot of fun and is heating up with the summer months. When targeting these fish pay close attention to your tide charts and do not be scared to wade into the shallowest of back country lakes during high tide. Early in the morning you can find these fish tailing on flats but as the sun rises it can be more difficult. Look for an abundance of bait on or near a grass flat––seeing nervous mullet dart and jump out of the water is usually a sign they are being chased by a predator. Pay attention to large fish wakes near shorelines and or mud swirls, depending on the depth of water. Redfish are almost constantly feeding and are not picky. When you see signs of a large game fish try and anticipate what direction it is moving and place your bait or lure directly in front of the fish's nose. More casts do not necessarily equal more success when sight-casting reds.
