Red’s Fresh Fish is a mobile fish market that delivers your fish to you. But not just any fish. We specialize in local, wild caught fish. We only use methods and equipment that is safe for our eco-systems and the animals and fish that depend upon and live in our waterways.
We have two delivery options we call “delivery” and “pick up”.
- Delivery – We deliver your order straight to your door.
- Pick Up – We meet at an agreed upon central location where you may pick up your order.
We also have roadside events. Roadside you will find whole or filleted fish. All whole fish were caught the day of the event, while the filleted fish were caught the day before to be filleted and packaged. ” Like” us on Facebook so you don’t miss a roadside event.
We currently do not have a customer accessible location. We’re using a different kind of business model that is strictly mobile, eco-friendly, and employs a network of independent fishermen. We thrive to provide only the freshest to our customers.
Red’s Fresh Fish began in June 2015 while Red was still learning how to fish using these techniques and obtained his own commercial fishing license. Red officially seperated from the others he was fishing with and launched Red’s Fresh Fish full-time in December of 2015. Red has been building Red’s Fresh Fish from the ground up on nothing more than a shoestring budget, determined not to let anything get in his way of bringing awareness of the importance of our waterways to the American people, bringing attention to the risks and dangers of imported fish and the benefits of American fish, and ultimately bringing awareness to the people of America’s oldest and dieing industry with the hopes of reviving the industry

A statement from Red:
I love how ancient cultures did things to survive. I also have a problem with mechanized devices that in many cases do more harm than good.
At Red’s Fresh Fish, I utilize these ancient techniques to fish. No commercial boats with gas powered mechanized devices. I currently use a canoe as my boat of choice. As Red’s Fresh Fish expands, we will use a fleet of canoes, pirogues, and other types of small boats.
When you place an order for fish, our lines are dropped and nets cast. Below is a picture of my boat, cast net and very first setup of trotlines. My trotlines are more organized these days.
As we grow and expand, you will see more and more Red’s Fresh Fish boats similar to mine. Varying in color and size, and many equipped with trolling motors or electric outboards.
Red’s Fresh Fish will never use methods that are dangerous or harmful to the environment. Only the best methods that date back 10,000+ years will be used.
As technology advanced, many ancient methods were modernized or replaced altogether. Up until now, you would only see these methods being used by recreational and sport fisherman.
I’m hoping to draw attention back on fishing using these historical methods, and bring fishing back to the local market. Rather than a few international companies destroying the population of many species of fish, I’m working towards a future where fishing returns to local communities working with the ecosystem, not against it.
By using these methods, not only are we doing our part to keep the ecosystem of the waterways thriving, we are able to provide you with local, wild caught fish at affordable prices.
