This Is What 1,000+ Redfish Look Like On Underwater Film!

Holy School Of Redfish!

Ever since we posted the video, “The Biggest School of Redfish Ever Captured On Film?” (watch it here), we have been trying to find redfish videos that would beat it.

We had a couple of video submissions from Salt Strong subscribers with some epic redfish footage, but no one ever sent us anything like you are about to see below.

A Massive School of Redfish captured on an underwater camera.

According to the video notes, this was all filmed at St. Andrews State Park near Panama City Beach.

Ever seen this many redfish underwater?

This Is How You Clean A Redfish In 20 Seconds Or Less!

Holy Redfish Fillets!

I’ve seen some anglers clean a redfish pretty quickly, but this guy takes it to a whole new level.

Keep in mind these aren’t small redfish either. These are bull reds.

Now before you get your waders in a wad, remember that Louisiana anglers are allowed to keep bull redfish up to a certain amount (what we refer to as “over slot redfish” here in Florida).

And this is what a Louisiana redfish cleaning facility looks like.

Note: this is also was a razor sharp knife looks like! Wow.

Clearly, this fisherman has been cleaning these bull redfish for quite some time as he literally fillets both sides in less than 20 seconds (and from the look of his cuts, he is getting the majority of the meat).

Ever seen anyone clean a redfish quicker?

Let us know in the comments.

Enjoy.

You’ve Got To See What This Redfish Attempted To Swallow!

First of all, huge thanks to our friend “LifesaBeach” for sharing this with us on Twitter.

Secondly, the pictures below might be too graphic for any of you that can’t stand seeing one of the many dark sides of nature…(warning disclaimer)

If you are still with me, what we have here is a redfish (known to be opportunistic eaters) that made the mistake of trying to eat a turtle a little too big for his mouth…

According to user “23Sailfish” on the Charleston Fishing Forum that stumbled upon this redfish laying belly up in the water:

“This 32” redfish had eyes bigger than his stomach. He had tried to take on this large turtle and it was all over from there. The turtle was about 10″ long from tail to head and when the redfish tried to consume him, the backside of the shell got stuck in those few little upper teeth that redfish have and the turtle got stuck. The redfish choked to death on his last meal that he never got to enjoy.”

Well, unfortunately, this redfish that attempted to eat a turtle didn’t end well for either of them. We hate seeing two beautiful animals die, but we also remind ourselves that this is just part of everyday nature.

However, unlike humans, I doubt any redfish learned from this mistake…

Check Out The Hungry School Of Redfish These Lucky Guys Run Into!

Poppers and Pumpkins…

Doesn’t get much better than this.

Check out the hungry school of redfish these guys came across in the Gulf of Mexico.

Jordan Whiteman and his buddies had a blast catching these as the redfish were fighting for a chance to grab their poppers.

Well done gents.

Enjoy.

How NOT To Catch & Release Your First Redfish!

This one was tough to watch, while at the same time I couldn’t stop watching…

YouTube user “Fishing Infinite” was attempting to catch his first redfish on a fly rod at his grandparent’s house in Charleston, and he learned a valuable lesson about jumping in a marsh (and handling redfish).

We post this video not to make fun of this guy, but to save anyone else from making the same mistake.

I know from personal experience that it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of landing a fish, but it’s also important to think through your approach (especially if you are fishing by yourself).

The guy is lucky he escaped with just a few oyster infections and some ruined shoes… it could have been a whole lot worse.

As for the redfish, he claims it swam off happily.

Maybe I’m mistaken, but it looks like it could be a slot redfish. Not sure why you wouldn’t just eat him for dinner after all of that?

However, it did look more like a muddy catfish after the fight so I guess I can’t blame him…

Either way, I hope everyone can learn something from this. I’m sure this guy did.

Enjoy.

Thanks to Curry Belk for sending this over.

Can You Guess How Many Spots This Rare Leopard Redfish Has? Find Out Now.

Ever caught a leopard redfish before?

Chances are good that most us of haven’t.

Well, this week Capt. Eddie Berthelot Jr. of Golden Meadow, Louisiana had the catch of his life!

A very rare “Leopard Redfish.”

As you can imagine, an inshore fishing captain in Louisiana like Capt. Eddie has caught a ton of redfish in his life.

But never anything like this.

In fact, he had this to say in his recent interview to the Louisiana Sportsman:

“When I set the hook on him, he jumped about halfway out the water and I almost threw up because I was so excited,” said Berthelot, who operates Spots and Specks Charters. “I’ve been waiting for a good redfish mount forever, and when I set the hook I knew it was a mount — that’s how much of his body came out the water.”

After landing the leopard red and taking it in for taxidermy, they took the time to count all of the spots.

  • 342 on one side
  • 328 on the other side
  • For a combined spot count of 670 redfish spots!

Enough to win any redfish spot tournament in the country!

Awesome catch!

Notes from the captain:

  1. The fish was caught using live cocahoe minnow on a Kahle hook under a popping cork.
  2. He was fishing in less than 3 feet of water
  3. The temp was around 40 degrees
  4. The leopard red came in at 28.5 inches long
  5. Estimated 9 pounds

This Is What Goes Down Every Winter In Louisiana!

If you asked the average person what is the most exciting thing to go on in November and December in Louisiana, they would say, “LSU football…”

But real fishermen know that November and December mean lunker redfish in Louisiana.

Check out William Lattimore’s recent trip to Venice, Louisiana where he and his buddy caught bull redfish until their arms were tired.

Looking Redfish Strong!

Enjoy.

Shocked Angler Catches A Freshwater Redfish In Downtown Houston!

Have you ever caught a freshwater redfish?

And I don’t mean “brackish” water redfish, I’m talking pretty much pure freshwater.

Although it’s obviously not as common as catching a redfish near the mouths of where freshwater meets saltwater, redfish have been known to venture past the brackish blends and be found alongside bass and bluegills.

Check out the experience the “Texas Redfish Hunter” recently had while trying to catch bass.

The irony was he had been out in the saltwater the past few trips and was skunked when it came to catching reds.

Pretty awesome.

Enjoy.

The Real Meaning Of Low Tide: The Quest For Redfish

The meaning of low tide…

“Going places where most guys won’t go… seeing things that most people won’t ever see… that’s an experience.”

Some great quotes from this awesome short video of a man’s quest for low-tide redfish in Charleston, South Carolina.

Regardless if you are into fly fishing or not, there is nothing cooler than tracking down redfish in ultra low tides.

It’s hunting on water.

Great job Ryan Rodgers.

Enjoy.
