Redfish and Seatrout Reopen for Harvest

Mike Milner and Matt Baker display a couple of redfish.

It’s been two long years since you’ve been able to keep redfish and seatrout for dinner, but that day is finally here. Today is the day! Blackened redfish and fried seatrout are back on the menu.

More good news! It shouldn’t be too difficult get your limit. Many of my recent clients have caught redfish, seatrout and snook during the same charter, to make for an inshore slam. Snook reopens for harvest on September 1 by the way, so mark your calendars.

Other species you can keep inshore to eat are mangrove snapper, Spanish mackerel, and cobia.

If you’re traveling or just like to catch and release, I’m good with that. It’s just nice to be able to take more of a variety, should you choose to do so.
