Matlacha Redfish At Sunset
Perfect low tides at the end of the day brought out dozens of tailing reds just as the sun hit the horizon. Despite the mess of floating grass, which is typical this time of year, I managed to land this 27 incher on a topwater lure. Fish like this one have been pouring back into Matlacha Pass by the hundreds during the last two weeks and don't seem to be bothered by late day heat. Just slow down your lures since they seem a bit sluggish at the end of the day, just like a lot of people I know.
