Weird Trick To Find Actively Feeding Redfish On The Flats
Do you know what to look for when trying to locate actively feeding redfish?
Of course, there are telltale signs like v-wakes, tails, moving grass, mud boils, and bait movement.
But did you know bubbles could be the key to finding where and when redfish were in a specific area?
I have some pretty awesome on-the-water footage to show you exactly what you’ll need to be on the lookout for and the best approach to not spook the fish.

Here’s what I used to catch that redfish:
One thing that I have found to help me locate where redfish are feeding on a calm day is to look for bubbles on the surface.
When redfish stir up mud on the bottom or hit a bait on the surface, they’ll often aerate the water and leave bubbles showing where they’ve been.
The pattern of the bubbles can give you a timeframe for when a redfish was actively feeding in a particular location as well.
If the bubbles are really spread out, more time has passed.
On the other hand, if the bubbles are concentrated, this is a good sign that a fish is close and hungry.
Once you see this indicator, do not charge into that area or you could spook the fish.
Instead, make casts as you slowly make your way up to the bubbled spot as the fish may now be swimming closer towards you.
Typically we are always telling you that in order to find fish you need to look for the 3 B’s: birds, bait, and boils.
But on calmer days, I’m adding a 4th “B” — bubbles!
