Redfish are a common game fish found in the Gulf of Mexico, and understanding their preferred habitats can greatly increase your chances of catching them.


Redfish, also known as red drum, are a popular game fish that inhabit coastal waters from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. 


A medium-heavy to heavy rod is recommended for redfish fishing, with a length of 7-8 feet.  A spinning reel with a high line capacity is also recommended, as redfish can be powerful fighters.

Particularly near marshes, oyster reefs, and other structures with submerged vegetation. 

Redfish tend to inhabit shallow waters along the Gulf’s coastal inshore areas
