Redfish feed by scent and at a variety of depths and water conditions. Jan Maizler, an author and blogger, suggests using four types of rigs for redfish. He prefers Berkley Gulp! shrimp lures, Yum Money minnow weedless lures and D.O.A shrimp baits, and prefers the Bait Buster in deeper water. Popping cork baits are more effective when the water is cooler and the redfish are less active.
SaltWaterSportsman.com suggests using soft plastic jigs for gulf fishing when the water is cool and fish are less active. These include soft plastic grubs as well as Berkeley Gulp! lures in Shaky Shad, which work well for bottom fishing. Bass Assassin jig heads with spring locks are also good for colder, deeper water. Berkley Gulp! and D.O.A. shrimp shaped popping cork baits are well reviewed on this site.
Other well reviewed surface lures for catching large redfish include Heddon baits such as the Super Spook and Spit'n Image, those from Rebel such as the Jumpin' minnow, and Bomber products such as the A-Salt.Learn more about Water Sports & Activities
