Why are redfish popular?

Captain Mike Gulick talks about why redfish are so popular. Nothing gets the heart pumping like poling your skiff up to a school of 20 or more redfish with tails protruding above the water’s surface this indicates that they are in feeding mode and more than likely willing to accept an accurate cast presented to them. If you have made a perfect cast without spooking any fish, then the water erupts as one of the fish takes your bait, suddenly he feels the pressure of your line and begins a drag testing run in an attempt to avoid being landed. This is just one scenario why I find redfish so addicting. Their shear power when trying to horse them out from under a dock or mangrove is also another aspect which makes them the perfect inshore challenger.
