Even during the peak of Tarpon Fishing in the Florida Keys, it is nice to slip off and catch redfish on one of the numerous flats of Florida Bay. Redfish are popular among many anglers, and can easily be caught on fly and light tackle - either way, redfish are loads of fun.

The Maverick HPX skiff, like the ones we run, is equally at home tarpon fishing in rough water, and poling the shallowest of flats for redfish. So if you want to mix things up while you're fishing Islamorada, grab your gear, and head to the flats and mangroves around Islamorada. Redfish make for easy targets on fly, and the best rods are seven or eight weight fly rods with matching reels and lines.
