Henry kicks off the series from Jacksonville, Florida and is fishing for Redfish with top charter boat skipper, Capt Steve Crowder on the St John River. In the upper reaches of the river, trophy Largemouth Bass can be caught but around Jacksonville its the Redfish that can reach 50lb and the Black Drum that go to 100lb that dominate. After the boat anchors in a strong current, Steve deploys the rods baited with Blue Crab baits with almost instant success as Henry hooks into a powerful Redfish. Its a 28lb Redfish and a fantastic start to the series but they both know there are bigger fish out there. In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Redfish in more detail, its feeding and migratory habits, how to locate them, and the tackle you'll need to land the big ones. Henry's reel then screams again with the line tearing out and he knows he's into another big fish. This time its a male, a big Bull Redfish and definitely a bit bigger than Henry's first. It isn't long before another is landed and again its a massive Redfish. The fishing here in Jacksonville is proving to be electric and the size of these Redfish makes this a true fishing hotspot to start the series.
