Tagged Redfish Release Locations

  • All coastal counties of Florida have on average 4 tagged redfish that have been released in areas where anglers are known to catch redfish.

  • Where can you have the best opportunity to catch one of these prize winning tagged redfish?  Brevard and Citrus Counties.

  • Florida’s Visit Space Coast is the East Coast Destination Partner for CCA Florida’s 2017 STAR competition! There are a total of 9 fish released in Brevard County.   As the home to the largest percentage of the Indian River Lagoon, the Space Coast offers more opportunities than most other coastal counties to land that winning tagged Redfish!  Brevard County (the Space Coast) encompasses 72 miles of the IRL: the southern portion of Mosquito, the northern portion of the Indian and all of the Banana.  With 29 sets of public boat ramps (nearly all are Free!) lining all three bodies of water, anglers have many choices on where to put in.  The No-Motor-Zone of the Banana River can only be fished from kayaks, canoes or boats without a propeller.  Mosquito Lagoon has two “pole and troll zones” where internal combustion engines must be off and boats drafting more than 12 inches at rest may not enter; electric trolling motors are allowed.  You have to put in a little work paddling or poling to reach them, so there is less pressure on the fish in those areas.

  • Discover Crystal River is the West Coast Destination Partner for CCA Florida’s 2017 STAR competition! Citrus County encompasses the waters from Chazawitzka to just south of Yankeetown and includes Homosassa, Ozello and Crystal River. Citrus County has 8 tagged redfish released in their waters, more than any other west coast county. Compare this to the four tagged fish in other counties and it only makes sense to fish Citrus county this summer. Having more tagged fish and the ability to land all the inshore and offshore species in the Open Divisions presents anglers with a greater opportunity to win their share of prizes and scholarships.
