The Shallow Season

Florida Redfish with David Mangum

Don’t freak out—but fall is pretty much in full swing. And when fall comes to Panama City, Florida, so does shallow water fishing for redfish (it’s okay to freak out about that one). This video from David Mangum, fishing guide and Simms Pro Team member, shows the fish as they move to shallower feeding grounds. “To walk in on a fish that’s completely unaware that you’re there,” explains David, “and to cast at him and catch him…it’s the closest you can get to hunting without a gun.”
