  • Redfish: Redfish are one of the most popular fish to catch while inshore fishing in AMI.

Redfish are a very popular gamefish because they put up quite a fight when they are hooked. They are also very good at eating fish, which is why they are so popular among fishermen.

One of the best spots to find them is around Anna Maria Island, unsurprisingly a popular destination for many people trying to snag one of these impressive creatures.
