Advice well taken
I fish a lot of bass tournaments up here in Canada and I have to admit that a lot of the skill sets I have learned for both smallmouth and largemouth bass were so similar to what I did for the Redfish.
after talking to you that I instantly became hooked!
The fishing was tough then apparently when I talked to a few people fishing and some of the guides but I was having a blast.
I didn’t catch a lot of Redfish in the few days that I went out but the ones I caught were all oversized.
In total I had six redfish over 28 inches, all coming from skipping soft plastic swim baits way up under the mangroves,
or just outside of them in little potholes that I could see to cast to. It was absolutely a blast for me.
I give a lot of the credit to you and Vinny for your hints on what to look for.
I just drove around until I found some place there were no other boats and the structure was similar to yourself and Vinnies description.
By the way I also caught a bunch of Sea Trout with quite a few being over 22 inches and a lot of undersized as well.
