This is what a group of backing redfish look like in the creeks.

When you see this you need to position yourself and get ready to cast. Do this as quietly as possible and don't start casting until the fish are in range. If you start making a lot of noise by waving your rod in the air making too many false cast you will spook these fish. Even if they don't turn and run the noise you are making will put them on guard. They will stop eating. This is easier said than done.
If you look at the bottom of the picture you will see the wake of a fish moving away from my kayak. Notice the shrimp jumping in front of this wake as the fish moves away. This is another indicator you should be aware of and looking for when stalking redfish.

Here's one I spooked. When this happens don't let it ruin your day, keep looking, these fish are grouped up so there should be more. As a matter of fact if you look closely you will see another red backing right towards me.

Now when they are moving away from you the way these guys are running from me they are next to impossible to catch. It's time to go and find another group of fish.

I hope this helps. If anyone has something they would like to add or a question about sight fishing post it and I'm sure you will get an answer.
