Pine Island Fishing Report: Cabbage Key Redfish


The waters of Pine Island Sound are amazingly clear right now and reds are the perfect target at low tide.  The fish pictured above were two of the three we caught yesterday using Marsh Works soft plastics on the flats just south of Cabbage Key.  This is a great area to pole and sight cast if you've got a shallow drafting boat.  It's also the closest you'll come to Key West style flats fishing outside of Monroe County.  The next few mornings will be a bit difficult but next weekend will give us some perfect tailing conditions in the northern part of the Sound.  If you asked Santa for some great redfishing you might just get your wish on Christmas morning.
