Fishing in Bonita Springs and we show you how to fillet a Redfish.
This April, I had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Steve Nagy of Bonita Springs Fishing and Ray Ragolta with Dexter Outdoors. Captain Steve is a Pro staff member for Dexter, Okuma, Mustad and other brands. We started our afternoon working the shoreline of Estero Bay in Bonita Springs Florida and our target fish was Snook. Steve had us all set up with Okuma Shadow Stalker rods, Okuma Azores spinning reels using Mustad circle hooks and Pinfish for bait.
The weather was perfect, temperature and wind just right for a perfect day on the water. On our first stop Ray did a great job of catching a number of Snook and I came though with one. As we moved along the shoreline and fished some docks Ray picked up a few Jack Crevalle’s and some more Snook. Swimming along the boat was a Dolphin and her calf, what an enjoyable sight to see. On our last shore line of the day I landed the Redfish you will see in the video.
Steve uses a Dexter 7″ Coated blade to fillet this fish. Redfish have a large heavy scale and can be difficult to get through unless you use a Dexter knife. Our coated blades features DexterGuard coating that withstands the harsh saltwater environment and glides through fillets with ease. This knife has our Sofgrip handle that makes it non-slip and soft to the grip. The steel is our proprietary DexSteel which is high carbon, high alloy and stain free. We finish it with precision grinding and sharpened it to the ultimate edge. See the knife here: 7″ Coated Fillet Knife I want to thank Steve and Ray for a great day on the water.
