The World's Spookiest Redfish

Think carp are cagey? Think permit are paranoid? You’ve obviously never met a Pine Island redfish. Whether it is because of the constant roar of big outboards or the simple fact that the waters between Boca Grande and Fort Myers are a redfish nursery and only the skittish survive, the area holds some of the most difficult redfish in the U.S. Norm Zeigler writes about it in this morning’s New York Times. “The redfish of southwest Florida’s lower Caloosahatchee River estuary, which includes Pine Island Sound, Matlacha Pass and San Carlos Bay, have a well-deserved reputation as some of the spookiest in the United States. Locals refer to them as Pine Island Sound bonefish.”
