Redfish are pursued year round. In the warmer months when a lot of bait is in the area and the water clarity is down, live baiting is the most effective tactic. Full and new moons, however, offer excellent sight fishing in the grass this time of year. As long as the water is not too hot, these fish can be fooled with flies and weedless soft plastics. They can be stalked by foot and commonly caught just feet from the angler. As the water cools the bait begins to thin out, waters begin to clear, and fish begin to gather in groups along the flats, shell bars, and in creeks.
