Default Redfish Spots

I recently noticed that nearly every redfish I have caught in one of the areas I fish has more than one spot. Is it just coincidence?

That's because thats where they dumped all that nuclear waste. You know like the Bart Simpson Fish, the one with 3 eyes!

Default RE: Redfish Spots

I always wondered about redfish spots myself. You see pics from time to time of redfish that supposedly mated with speckled trout and they have a ton of spots, but I don't think that is actually the case. I believe the spot on a red's tail evolved as a way to fool predators and make the fish's tail look like its head- as if the spot was an eye. Someone once told me the multi spotted reds were of a certain sex- male or female I can't recall, and doubt it's true anyway. It's probably just a genetic thing- no rhyme or reason. Someone smarter than I am about fish biology will have to handle this question.

Its my understanding that it is purely genetic as far as how many spots etc. I just think it is strange that in certain areas nearly every fish i catch has multiple spots.
