This week's Topwater Tuesday takes us to the deep marshes of Southern Louisiana in search of the famous bull redfish.
As something of a redfish novice, I'm still always shocked at the sight of these massive fish hydroplaning on the surface as they attempt to get their unfortunately-placed mouths around a 6-8" popper. The amount of times these bottom-feeders swing and miss on the surface is rather astounding, and why they are so enticed by a topwater plug that looks better suited for a toothy pike seems to defy logic. But of course, they do connect on occasion ... and what happens then is truly a sight to behold.
This video aptly titled "Poppa" is about 7 minutes of nonstop topwater redfish action. The soundtrack can be a little tiring, but the footage is well worth the price of admission.
If you plan to fly fish for bull redfish, make sure to check out the Cheeky Limitless 425 Fly Reel. At just 7.5oz, the Limitless 425 is a breeze to cast and packs more than enough power to stop the hardest-pulling red without breaking a sweat.
