One Excellent Pine Island Red
My buddy Sam Peplinski from Atlanta landed this beautiful 9 lb. red out in Orange Pass today on a white Gulp Shrimp. Despite the excellent tides the redfish bite has been really slow over the past several days. This was the first over-slot red I've seen in more than a week even though we've had a ton of bait in the water and above normal temps. Another front is hitting us tomorrow but don't let that discourage you for looking for fish like this on the incoming tide, especially in the north part of Pine Island Sound.
