many years ago BBay was stocked with redfish! I have even found them in schools on oceanside flats. But they are more common in the south part of the bay. Look for tailing redfish early mornings on low tides. They look like small flags waving, check their direction on movement and place the fly as close as possible to their nose without spooking them maybe 10ft. Then when they get close twitch it or sweep the fly to entice a strike. A 6-8wt is perfect with a floating line and a 9-11ft leader. Pick a fly you like reds are not picky most times BUT they can key in on certain prey items like trout can that can be frustrating. Their behavior can determine that like surface thrashing might mean minnows. Good luck.
SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED EACH DAY WITH
THE INTERIOR PENINSULA HAVING THE GREATEST COVERAGE. A FEW STORMS
COULD CONTAIN GUSTY WINDS.
Hot and humid with afternoon summer thunderstorms and predicted light winds. GO fish!
