Redfish On Fire

December 27, 2022

I ran into Capt Benny Hendrix with Heavy Hitter Fishing Charters at Old Town Bait and Tackle today. I had seen him at AIBT yesterday morning and when I asked how he did he reported that they had “tore them up”!  Capt Benny was fishing some dock pilings on the first of an incoming tide with live shrimp. He had one angler fishing the bottom and one angler drifting a slip float and both were catching fish. Water temperatures in the back water are in the high 40’s – it’s cold!  Capt Benny Hendrix fishes the backwaters and also enjoys going to the the jetties so give him a shout! 904-753-0757
