You just have to know where to find them.
So in this video, you’ll learn the #1 spot to find redfish, when they’ll be there, and why it’s important to understand redfish biology.
Check out the video below!
You can have really great days on the water during summer if you know where to look for redfish.
And having a grasp on redfish biology and why they need to be in certain spots will give you a huge advantage!
So I’ve made a checklist for summer redfish spots and things to look for when you are scouting these areas.
Spot Feature #1
Find areas with higher levels of DO2 (dissolved oxygen).
Fish need this to function like we need oxygen to breathe!
Try finding cooler water or other factors that will allow for more concentrated levels of DO2.
Moving water or current flow, areas with seagrass or lighter bottoms, and spots that are closer to inlets and passes will all have higher levels of DO2.
Spot Feature #2
Areas that have both shallow and deep water hunting opportunities will hold redfish.
Redfish are going to move in between these two spots depending on the time of day and the temperatures outside.
They are cold-blooded so they have to feed in certain areas based on external temperatures.
Their bodies can’t handle certain temperatures so they move to find deeper water if necessary.
An example of an area like this is oyster bars on the edge of a flat.
Redfish can feed on the shallow side when it’s cooler outside (like in the morning or late evening hours) and can feed on the deeper side of the oyster bar when it gets hotter outside.
Spot Feature #3
Find the conveyor belt of food.
Redfish will be more lethargic in the summer months and will want to be posted up where bait is coming to them.
They’ll localize in spots like entry and exit points on mud flats or grass flats with current moving bait in their direction.
Want to find the #1 spot to consistently catch redfish during the hottest months of summer?
Use the spot checklist:
And don’t lock yourself into one particular type of spot until you find the fish!
If you know someone who wants to target redfish this summer, please TAG or SHARE this with them!
