Dave gets another Tailing Red
Dave down on the Florida Gulf Coast just sent me another picture. Once again Dave got himself a “tailing” red. Nice going Dave. You rule!
The light color of this red suggests it has been spending some time over sandy bottoms. When hanging over muddy bottoms, reds get a much darker bronze. Hey striped bass adapt to their habitat the same way. In Long Island Sound stripers tend to darken, while out on Cape Cod they look like Casper the friendly ghost. And I’m going to guess from the clouds it has been raining down Dave’s way. While rain discolors the water it also can drop temperatures which in turn invites reds back into the shallows. Any way you cut it a good looking redfish.
