Little Pine Island Redfish
Nice change of pace today. We put down the fly rods and ignored the tarpon to chase edible fish with spinning gear instead. Local angler Harvey Zorn brought in this beautifully colored red with a live shrimp off the north tip of Little Pine. We also landed several dozen trout further north included a near limit of slot-legal keepers. Great conditions out there this weekend for anyone looking to grill something. You've got incoming tide for most of the morning and just enough breeze to keep you cool until the thunderstorms roll in later in the day. Look for the mullet jumping around the mangroves and you'll find nice redfish hanging with them.
