School of breeder redfish bait balled up on the flats, from a drone

I had the opportunity to shoot some aerial video for Peter Mill of Bass2bill fish TV this last fall. He was fishing with Capt Rob Gorta in Tampa Bay for one of the episode of the 2016 season.

We came across a giant school of breeder redfish on the flats. This was nothing new this time of year, but today the school got approached by two dolphin right up to the flats in 3′ of water. The awesome part was when these redfish balled up just like you see sail fish and tuna balling up bait offshore.

It was the coolest thing I’ve captured on a drone.

The episode will be airing today at 1:30pm eastern on NBCsports.

A little preview of this week's episode premiering on Wednesday at 1:30pm on NBC Sports. The redfish bite was incredible and we captured amazing footage. Special thanks TradeWinds Island Resorts Guy Harvey Outpost Sam Root Productions and Capt Rob Gorta 🙂
