More Key West Redfish From Capt. Mike Bartlett

Here's another beautiful Key West redfish that my buddy Capt. Mike caught yesterday on a Gulp shrimp off Key West. These fish are almost becoming a regular catch for Mike down there and the one pictured above is nicer than any that my anglers landed all week. You'll also notice how not red the redfish are in the Lower Keys.  These fish adapt to the coloration of the water and on the gin clear flats of the Keys they're mostly silver with a little pinkish tone to their scales.  Compare Mike's Key West fish to the one below that he caught in the dark waters off Pine Island this time last year.  I think ours are prettier.
