133 entries so far. Creek temps around SMWWR are climbing, which is chasing slot trout out into flats and deeper creek holes. But the redfish don't seem to care, and are biting anyplace that crabs and mullet are moving about, even in bathtub temperature shallows. Yes, you can sight-cast a tailing red in late summer, if you keep a low profile. Watched a buddy nail one on a gold spoon in skinny water a few days ago.

145 entries. The Sally storm surge has washed a huge school of upper slot reds into a freshwater/brackish impoundment at the St Marks National Wildlife Refuge. You can literally catch them from the bank, cast after cast. Guess which one!

Still no tagged red caught by a registrant. If I had a skiff, I'd be hammering around Lanark nearshore on every outing. I think they release tags near boat ramps, and they don't go too far from release spot.

According to the CCA offical that released the tagged Red I caught, it was released close to Eastpoint and traveled East to Lanark over the course of about a month. So hard to say if close to the ramp is more likely than somewhere else. It is a small needle in a big haystack but it can be done.

Thanks for the clarification, RockyG. Might I be correct in assuming that they probably stay close to the shore? Not that I have a shot at getting one. 147 entries as of today, though. Not giving up!

154 entries as of today. Got my redfish just before the lightning storm took over Apalachee Bay.
