I love to fish the South-west Florida flats and mangrove shorelines speed-casting/jigging using a 1/4 oz. jighead rigged with a Lunker City 3″ Shaker along the mangrove shorelines.
Redfish use the tides and move right underneath the over-hanging mangroves looking for small crabs, shrimp and baitfish that use the mangrove roots for cover. My goal is to hit as many “pockets” that have 2-3′ depth trying to intercept a feeding Redfish. Man, when a Redfish senses your jig it’s automatically on,…very exciting trying to get a hooked fish away from the barnacle covered mangrove roots!
