Default redfish behaving strange

Im in santa rosa sound and theres this dock with a green underwater light and EVERY night like 15-25 redfish will just like swim in circles and splash around in it some right on top and some lurking down a few feet. So anyway of course a catch a couple finger mullet and start catching them. But I only got one and all the others broke me off.like strategically,I may have to get video of it. But anyway theres a few other green lights that never have fish and this one always does. Anyways my question is where are these fish holding during the day? Ive only been catching at night

I'd like to know too, guessing the heat has them down in deeper water these days.
Maybe this dock has the right spectrum of green or there are more bait fish and shrimp passing by...?

This time of year, they vanish from shallow water during the day. It gets too hot for them early in the day. I don't do much inshore fishing this time of year because of it.

Please PM me the GPS coordinates if the dock in question. I will personally do some research of my own and get back with you shortly.

Fish are still up on the flats all day, just have to look around and figure out where. Slightly deeper areas on the flat is what I look for. They are usually schooled up as well when you find them.

Can't tell you how many times I've fished the grass near a dock hours before dark while not getting a bite, yet right after sun sets see dozens of specs/reds under that same dock after it's light comes on.

As said...they are there. Just got to hope they are biting, and if not, get them to take your lure with good presentation.

This is great info. The fish that are up on the flats during the day aren't always feeding, and you just have to make them react to your lure.

Yes for the most part. Occasionally though your Matrix needs a little help to catch the fish.
