January and February Report

This past January proved to be one of the best Months of the season. Although we only had one hard front during this month we had very good pre front and post front fishing. February was warmer then usually which forced me into the interior marsh to target spring time fish that payed off with […]

Solid December fly fishing in Louisiana 

As usual with this time of year the weather overall hasn’t been great. We had to reschedule a couple trips and made some not great weather days into some good fishing days. Thanks to a good number of big fish grouped up inside the marsh we actual have had some good success blind casting in […]

Back to normal in November…

After a warm October it was nice to have some solid cold fronts come through and push some big fish into their normal fall/winter spots.  Cooler temps also brings some warm lunches for some of my foodie anglers…                       

Big Season finish with Big Redfish

Late February into early March has been pretty good this year. Although the water clarity has been some of the worse I’ve seen at this time of year, luckily the tailing action has continued to be good. The average size of the big fish has been impressive too 28-31 lb range(42-46 in).   Probably switching […]

Great Weather Fly Fishing in Louisiana

It probably only happens a couple days a year but it happens…  Light winds and blue bird skies… This makes for some incredible Louisiana fly fishing.  The good weather makes areas fish able that otherwise would not be. Good weather mixed with anglers with the ability to get the job done is a recipe for […]

Fly fishing for Little Redfish to Save the Day!

With the Mississippi River much higher then usual we have had dirty river water invading are normally clear winter big redfish zones.  This makes for a tough day to just go target big redfish.  Although I will try for a while,  at a certain point I just want to catch some fish… Fortunately the little […]

Tailing Big Redfish

I would consider seeing a 25+lb fish tailing in less than a foot of water one of the greatest sights you could see in the marsh. Now this isn’t something that happens everyday but if you have the right conditions this time of year and you’re in the right spot, your odds go way up. […]

The most wonderful time of the year… Sheepy season!

Starting in mid November and going through mid March is what I consider Sheepshead season.  Not to say there are not sheepies here through the year it’s just easiest to fish for them during these times. This is due to the fact the water in the oyster ponds tend to get very clear during this […]

Winter fly fishing action

Although we have had a mild winter, we are still seeing a healthy amount of wintering redfish in the marsh.                       

February

As usual during February the weather has been somewhat an issue.  But as usual when the weather was good the fishing was good.  February is still considered prime time for big Redfish in the marsh.  The water is still clear and the big fish are still holding in their normal winter spots.  What also happens […]

December Fly Fishing Highlights

Starting from the top… Cindy came down and for the 3rd year in a row, nailed some great fishing.  This time was especially good timing because we were fishing the redbone, which is a non profit tournament held to raise money for cystic fibrosis.   Well we got the big one!  34 lb 46 in red […]

Redfish Blowing up on Topwater

Cold Weather, Hot Fishing

Jim came down from Alabama to get his first crack at some big redfish. What a heck of a guy and a pretty darn good fisherman as well. It’s been cold but the fishing has been hot. – Capt. Paul Lappin  

Mid-December Fun Fishing

Had a day off, so what did I do? Went fishing, of course. And man it was cold. Captain Ryan Frederick and I managed to put a few in the boat before heading back to the warmth of the truck. Fun day!! – Capt. Paul Lappin

The Perfect Day

Although Fall is most popular, people overlook the dead of winter.  Yes, during winter we get horrible fronts that will keep you off the water for days at a time.  Yes, our average winter temperatures are less then desirable for most saltwater fly fishing anglers.  But… If you luck out and hit it right, you […]

Cold Winter Redfishing is Heating Up

This winter season has been pretty good, to say the least…  We have had great shots on singles, doubles and sometimes even groups of 10 or more 20+lb Red Fish.  This makes the double possibility jump way up.  I even got to get in the game and hook up with this 35 lber with one […]

Kevin and Tejal

Although this is a late report, I had to let people know about what kind of luck you can have as long as you keep booking…  Kevin and Tejal started coming down to fish in Louisiana about 3 Years ago and although we had some semi-productive days, we still had to work hard for them. […]

Big Fish Season is in Full Swing

As long as the weather allows us to get out on the water the big fish have been waiting.  We have seen big fish floating, pushing, and even tailing, which is somewhat rare for us.  It has been very windy recently but as long as you get the fly in their face they usually eat […]

Late Winter Sheepshead Madness

Sheepshead aka Marsh Permit aka Convicts aka my new obsession.  This past winter, we constantly saw these big heads tailing and cruising all over the place.  Unlike some guides out there, I encouraged my clients to cast at them.  Most of the time they would spook before you could get the fly to them or […]

Top Water to Save the Day

The past few weeks have been anything but pleasant.  Seems like our weather is just punishing us for having such a nice fall.  Well, when you have guys that have traveled hundreds of miles to just have the opportunity to catch one of our big Bulls you have to try and make a day, no […]

End of December Pics

Here is the rest of my December pics.  Sorry it took until February to post them but we have been busy.  We had the usual big fish bite in the ponds but on certain days we were able to pop outside and chase birds which is always entertaining.  We mainly caught redfish from the 18-26 […]

Ridiculous December Double

  Here is a day back in December that although started cloudy we had calm wind and very happy fish.  The fish were floating so high they had the tips of their tails breaking the surface.  Both casters were very talented and hit most the shots we had.  We actually became a little bored catching […]

Catching up on some Fly Fishing Reports

I had the pleasure of fishing with this motley crew during early December.  It was composed of business men, guides, and even had a casting instructor in the group.  Well with blue bird skies and relatively calm winds it was easy for these very experienced casters to just have a stickfest.  In two days we caught more […]

Going for Fly Fishing Records

I’ve had the pleasure of having some women anglers on board that were willing to attempt some record breaking.  We did it but come to find out you haven’t done anything until you document.  Tejal and Kevin were the first group to attempt the record and although Kevin caught 2 that would of done it […]
