How To Catch Red Drum (Redfish) Off Docks & Grass Flats
It’s Red Drum (aka Redfish) time!
In this red drum tutorial, we brought on Jeff Anderson from 1Fish2Fish and Capt. Mitchell Blake of FishIBX to discuss how to find and catch red drum anywhere from Georgia to South Carolina to North Carolina to Virginia.
Capt. Mitchell is sharing two of his favorite spots to catch red drum:
- Grass lines (on grass flats)
But when you pull up to a row of docks or a grass line, you could be looking at a hundred docks or half a mile of grass.
How do you know where the red drum are likely to be feeding?
In this video, Capt. Mitchell is going to show us how he quickly chooses the best docks and grass lines to fish.

So how do you choose which docks and grass lines to fish?
Fishing Docks For Red Drum
There could be hundreds of docks in a canal, bay, or shoreline, and you can’t possibly fish them all, so here are the three types of docks Capt. Mitchell chooses to fish:
- The longest docks. These give you a longer span to hold more fish, and when fish are cruising a shoreline, they’re more likely to run into the longest dock.
- The oldest docks. These will have been around longer which allows more things to grow under them, like oysters, barnacles and vegetation.
- The most well-lit docks. Well-lit docks will be attracting bait all night long so in the morning they’re likely to still hold bait and predator fish.
Fishing Grass Lines For Red Drum
There are two types of grassy shorelines:
- Shorelines that have a gradual slope into the water
- Shorelines that have a steep dropoff into the water
Capt. Mitchell focuses only on shorelines that have a steep dropoff because that steep dropoff acts like a wall that red drum can pin baitfish and crabs up against.
When you’re looking for red drum around docks or grass lines, choose the longest, oldest, and most well-lit docks, and choose grass lines that have a steep dropoff into the water.
