At any given period in the tide cycle, redfish will stage themselves close to a food source in favorable water conditions.

This means they’ll sit in areas they know they have escape routes out of with a steady flow of bait.

On incoming tides, redfish push up close to shorelines and mangroves and on outgoing tides, you’ll find redfish stacked up on the outside of these areas.

Outgoing tides pull out all the bait with the tide, causing redfish to turn around and wait for meals to swim right into their faces.

The drone footage in the video starts at the mouth of a grass flat and a creek system.

Some redfish are staged feeding right on the point of these mangrove marshes as bait exits.

Their goal is to sit and wait to ambush crabs or mullet passing by.

The BIG KEY here is finding areas with large flushes of bait on the incoming tide.

Small crabs or mullet push up in these marshes to then get forced out on the outgoing tide.

These areas can be even MORE productive around the new moon and full moon phases of the moon.

During these times, instead of just seeing a few redfish staged outside creek mouths, you’ll see schools of redfish form.

Moving into fall seasonal trends, this is a GREAT time to start targeting redfish at low tide!

As bait gets flushed in and out with the tides, redfish position and stage themselves to beef up for the winter.

Keep an eye on the tide cycle as well as the moon phases to target some BULL redfish this fall!!

Thanks again !
When you mention Texas, what area are you fishing in the most ? I’m in Galveston without a boat and could use some insider tips. I’m sure there are some great hidden spots to get to in my 2wd truck…
Any feedback is greatly appreciated !

This is great, Wyatt! I’m curious, in how deep of water do you usually find redfish? It seems when I drift/fish the flats here in the Tampa Bay area, perhaps I’m out just a bit too deep because the redfish seem to elude me.

Ohhh, that’s awesome to know! If I’m typically drifting 3-7ft of water, then no wonder I catch trout and other species more easily with no redfish to be seen around LOL.
