Long before the speckled trout was the most popular species on the Gulf Coast, redfish were the big prize. As recently as the mid 1980’s, anglers greeted reports of big trout catches with far less enthusiasm than tales of tailing reds in the shallow flats. In my region, trout were mainly by-catch for anglers seeking reds How times have changed. Now, some diehard speckled trout anglers give redfish disparaging nicknames like “golden croaker on steroids,” “crab carp,” and “fool’s gold.” I personally want to puke when I hear anglers disrespecting redfish; to me, those comments are trampling on the traditions of many great anglers. On the other hand, some of the most affluent anglers on the Gulf Coast have found a deep appreciation for the redfish in recent years with the advent of the Redfish Cup tournament series. This makes today an interesting time for redfish.
