World record redfish

Redfish are popular sport fish throughout in the United States along the southeast Atlantic and entire Gulf of Mexico.  The fact that they are spirited fighters that can attain sizes of over 50 pounds makes them highly sought after by anglers.  On November 4, 1984, David Deuel was fishing from the beach in Avon, North Carolina.  The outer banks of North Carolina are known for their Fall run of big red drum, but little did David know what would happen next when he set the hook on a redfish that inhaled the mullet he was using for bait.  Forty five minutes later he used a two foot gaff to slide the big red drum out of the surf and onto the sand.  With a length of 57 inches and a girth of 38, he knew it was big but he was astonished when a certified scale registered 94 lb 2 oz.  This one fish had broken both the men’s 80 lb line class and the All-Tackle record.  If you think this is great catch, you should also check out all the IGFA line class and fly rod records for red drum.  Click here to become a member and have access to IGFA’s entire set of world records and scores of catches such as this one.

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.

Fly Water Expeditions, Greg Dini

Enjoy the BEST redfish fishery anywhere with Fly Water Expeditions.

Biloxi Marsh, all the way to Venice, Louisiana, Fly Water Expeditions will take you on a red fishing trip of a lifetime. Redfish and black drum are the most sought after species Greg likes to fish for. Some fish exceed 50 pounds, it truly is “The Land of Giants”.

Fish for Redfish

Big fish in 1-3 feet of water is where you will find yourself when taking a trip with Fly Water Expeditions. Captain Dini poles around in technical skiffs looking for  fish to present a fly or lure to. On an Average day you can expect to catch 4-10 fish when conditions cooperate, and 10-25 fish days are not uncommon including exceptional days over 50 fish. The areas Greg Dini fishes are truly in God’s country and you will rarely see other anglers.

During the fall and winter months, Fly Water Expeditions concentrates on the Biloxi Marsh, where the big redfish and black drum come in to feed . The spring and late summer they dedicate their time further south where the breeder redfish get in huge schools preparing for their annual spawn.

Another nice one.

Another nice one.

Greg’s saying is “If the conditions are good and the fish are eating, we aint leaving”. We always strive to put our anglers on as many fish as we can and we will work hard all day long to put you on the redfish or black drum of a life time. Weather you set out to catch a fish on a fly rod and the conditions may not be conducive to fly fishing; we have no problem keeping a spinning rod ready so you have a better opportunity to catch a monster fish. We want our anglers to have a trip to remember when fishing with Fly Water Expeditions, and when you leave you will always want to come back for more!

Greg of Fly Water Expeditions looks forward to having you in the boat and putting you on the monster fish of the Louisiana Marsh all day long!

Winter redfish in Brevard County

Redfishing on the Space Coast.

When the East Coast waters cool many redfish school up in local canal systems of the Indian and the Banana River. A little patience and exploration you should be able to find plenty of redfish action. Most of these redfish will be smaller then the slot limit but will keep many a young one occupied. Here is a recent trip Brandon McGraw took Alden and Derek Redwine on to fish for some schooled up  redfish. Live shrimp and Berkley Gulps fished on jigs accounted for the most bites.


Derek Redwine and his son Alden with a winter canal redfish caught on a Gulp and jig.

Vader Gulp

One bait that has been working consistently for redfish is the “Vader” or vader gulp. Its a very basic bait using a black 1/8 ounce DOA c.a.l. jighead and a black gulp! alive body. There are many theories why the all black works so well. My opinion is not only does the gulp have a lot of smell and the contrast maybe easy for the redfish to zero in on but I think the vader looks like their common prey. Redfish eat plenty of small oysterfish, gobies, bleenies and small oyster crabs which are all very dark in coloration.
