Been on a hiatus for a few months but glad to be back on the sight. Recently moved to Tampa Bay and finally had a chance to go fishing and had an amazing experience. I was cruising along 275 south of the Howard Franklin. The water was about 3 feet deep with a sandy bottom with small patches of grass. The water was pretty clear compared to most of the water in the bay. I'm used to the crystal clear waters of Chasahowitzka and Hernando Beach. I saw a school of jacks, and couldn't resist the urge to hook onto one. While fighting the fish, I saw a nice red swim by. And then another. And another. I was surrounded by redfish. It was awesome seeing them out on the sandy flat. And they were hungry too. I spent the next two hours sight fishing for reds, picking them off one by one. The hardest part was getting into casting range without spooking them. It was a great day on the water, and I'm looking forward to learning my new stomping ground.
