A High Tide Matlacha Redfish
Local angler Jerry Pfeil stepped up to the plate today and finally landed a photo worthy redfish for me this afternoon.
Jerry's 26 inch fish is the first upper-slot red I've had on the boat in several days. This one hit a Gulp Shrimp on the Indian Field flats just north of Matlacha. The reds are everywhere but getting a one of the upper-slot fish in the net has been a bit of a trick lately.
Thanks for finally nailing one for me, Jerry. You made me look good out there.
