Big Matlacha Redfish At Sunset

Matlacha Pass is seeing a great flood of redfish this month. There are even some big schools of tailers on the flats during the lower tides. I caught this 26-incher last night right at sundown on the Indian Fields. It was part of a school of at least 200 other big reds, all tailing like crazy. This fish ate an all white Deceiver and several other where hitting my dad's topwater lure before we finally couldn't chase them anymore in the dark. It was a great sight to see and one that will be more common as the fall approaches.
