Seeing Red: Redfish!

This beautiful 26-inch redfish was caught near the St. Mark's Lighthouse on Sunday.




These are scales that even the Rainbow Fish (of children's stories) would be envious to have.




This fish was right at the top of the legal limit of not less than 18" or more than 27"; there is no closed season; and a limit of one fish per person per day. These fish grow rapidly, reaching 12" in the first year.

Below is a fun, short video of bull redfish striking topwater lures.

What a beauty! I love that coppery color.
