Fishing the preserve has been rough for me lately. I say the preserve because I tend to stay within the preserve area on the back side of matlacha due to the size of my boat and the ease of access I have there. I fish the preserve at least 3 times a week and I have only just landed my 4th redfish in about 8 months. This was a long time coming for me. A beautiful 20 incher with two spots adourning it’s tail. An excellent meal I must say but this guy was lucky enough to swim off and see another day. I just couldn’t bring myself to kill this magnificent fish.
