Where's The Reds?

Fished in the Backwater Slam this weekend out of Fort Myers. 62 anglers caught 54 fish and ONLY TWO were reds?? The snook were biting well and were big (I know of at least 2 over 39 inches) and there were a few trout, but only two reds all day?

In the meantime, I heard about a lot sharks coming in as well.

You guys doing anything with redfish around here?

    Redfish bite has been tough for me as well the last few trips i've been out. Seen quite a few but they have either been real picky, or real spooky. I only fish arti's however so i'm not sure how they are eating on live/cut baits.

    you can't plead the fifth on a forum!!! You're supposed to give away all your secret spots and baits and formulas!!

    Nice job, if you're catching them up.

    Water is pretty warm so deeper holes and shade.
