Fall is time for redfish

One of the finest meals I've ever enjoyed is broiled redfish in a pan full of green beans and onions (but blackened red fish is a delight as well) I'm telling you this because we are approaching a period of time when this excellent table fare is available in abundance on Georgia's coast. Besides the tasty meals you will have in store the red fish is one of the great battlers of the salt water flats, sounds, and deeps.
