How To Catch BIG Redfish On tiny Lures (Even If They’re Extra Spooky)
“Elephants eat peanuts.”
If you’re sight fishing overslot redfish in clear, calm, shallow water, they can be extra spooky.
And a big, thumping paddletail in this scenario is likely to scare them off.
But a tiny lure that looks like candy just might be the ticket to you catching a new PB.
See how I caught this 40″ redfish on a 2″ lure in the video below, and learn how you can do the same!

When the water is deep, dark, and choppy, like if you’re fishing an inlet or pass, you’ll need a big lure that makes a lot of commotion to catch the fishes’ attention.
But it’s the opposite in calm, clear, shallow water.
The fish can see much better in this scenario and they’re much more likely to spook off, so you want to go with a stealthy lure.
On this trip, I caught this big red on the ChaseBaits Crusty Crab with a little bit of Pro-Cure on it.
I saw it swimming in front of me, tossed out the lure in front of it, then lifted the rod tip as it got closer to get it to strike.
He took me for a ride and almost got tangled around the kayak and anchor pin a few times, but I finally got him in!
Big redfish don’t get big by being stupid!
When they’re vulnerable in clear, shallow water, they’re extra spooky, so you’ll need a stealthy lure to get them to eat.
