My wife turned to me last night and just blurted out of the blue: "I want to catch a redfish... Out of a kayak".

I just kind of gave her a blank stare. The she said that she had never caught one. I was stunned. She grew up on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Her sister ran a charter boat in the 90's. And she has been kayak fishing for 10 years...

It never occurred to me that she had never caught a red. I guess I've gotta fix that. :whistling:

It can be done. Here's what my wife looked like with her first redfish caught from our kayak.

I've caught them in the past, but I have never targeted them.

The flats between pace and Pensacola usually produce well and easy to yak.

Not familiar with the area. I dont fish P'cola much. Maybe twice ever and that was offshore in a boat. Is there a good put in placefor kayaking there?

I was thinking of taking her to Biloxi Bay. Her sister lives on the water in back bay. P'cola is much closer though.

Yeah that’s a good spot. Simpson river kayak launch is public. On the north west side of the road.

Awesome info guys. Thanks alot!

I think I may make a day trip of it. Leave out before daylight, drive the 3 hours to Simpson River, fish the mid morning to early afternoon, and then head home. Maybe make a 12-14 hr trip of it. Doable! We've done the same to fish the pier and surf fish chicken bone beach before. Thanks again.

Yeah head left out of Simpson yak launch and hit the grass island to the right of the mouth. It always holds something on the down wind side.

I have caught quite a few red, specks, and white trout in Fairhope around Pt. Clear. Easy places to launch, lots of docks or remnants, public pier. Good spot to target redfish in AL in mid-Oct.
