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 […]
We are excited to announce that we will be teaming up with Yellow Dog to bring you the first annual Louisiana redfish school!!! Click the link below for more info… http://www.yellowdogflyfishing.com/blog/announcing-louisiana-redfish-school
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…
As many of you know I’m not big on miss leading people into booking with me. I’m all about being as truthful as possible in order to manage expectations. With that being said… This October was by far the worst October I have ever experienced. It wasn’t a shock considering the water temp pretty much […]
I can’t complain about this summer’s Jack season. Although I had to deal with constant west winds and the floods in Baton Rouge pumping dirty water into my main Jack fishing area we had a very successful Jack season.
Although we have had constant west winds, which is our least favorite wind direction in Louisiana, the Jack fishing has been very solid. We have had some good pushing fish on the flats and lots of schooling action in open water. We boated a total of 35 jacks on fly in 12 days of fishing. […]
During the summer months we try to get an early start to beat the heat, fortunately summer is one of the best times to hunt pushing fish. Both Redfish and giant Jack Crevalle become very active at this time. Their mornings are spent cruising flats in search of bait. Although we start earlier with low […]
This has definitely been one of the best spring seasons I’ve seen in a while and it’s looking like the good fishing should continue into summer. The fish in the interior marsh have grouped up and a 20 + fish school has been a common occurrence. The temperature is the only problem with this time […]
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 […]
Here are some pics from last two weeks. We had good, bad, and ugly weather. We did what we could to make the most out of the bad and ugly and it turned out to be pretty good. You gotta love topwater no matter what size the fish are.
We had to make the most of this windy partly cloudy day. When the sun popped out we looked for redfish and when the clouds blocked the sun we blind casted for trout. We were successful at both but would of rather spot fished all day. Still a pretty entertaining day though.
Recent pics… Start it off with a quick duck hunt I had on a bad weather day. Roll Tide.
My buddy Mike from the shop is packing up and moving to Denver. After fishing Louisiana marsh for years and never having a good opportunity on a trophy fish we decided to make it happen. After adjusting our presentation from smacking the fish to actually leading the fish we started getting true refusals on the […]
We had a great day this day with non stop shots at huge floating bull reds. The fish were so happy they were daisy chaining on the surface with their tails waving in the air. It was a sight to see. Even though some fish were being picky with the bite we had so many […]
Finally had a good weather day with calm winds clear skies and warming temps. This was the switch that got the big fish moving. Everywhere we stopped there were big fish floating and hungry. We landed many fish but this was by far the most unique one.
Here are some picks from the last successful trip I took out of Venice before the water rose and brought with it the chocolate milk. Partly cloudy with every bit of a 30 mph wind.
This has been a great fall so far. As the temperature drops and winter sets in the game changes but the results should stay the same.
I had a great time fishing with the Greens. They were both great anglers but Daniel at the age of 12 is better then most adults I have seen. Daniel can not only see the fish, accurately cast at the fish (with distance), but also remembers to strip set on the take. Needless to say we had […]
Guide day fun fish with Dini.
Rocky and I picked up our guys today at 4:00am and headed SSW to a super secret honey hole Captain Lucas turned us on to. Right off the bat we new we weren’t in Delacroix anymore due to the shark fins breaking the surface at the first spot we stopped at. As the day progressed […]
Both days have been extremely hot with the heat index reaching 110+ but when it is this hot it means there is no wind. Is the heat miserable? Yes. Is the fishing good enough to make you forget about the heat? Yes. When there is no wind it allows you to spot a redfish’s tell or movement […]
I had Riaz back on the boat for a second day of tremendous fly fishing action. We decided to try our hand at catching reds on top-water. I tied on a redfish popper and Riaz did the rest, laying down shot after shot with surgical precision. As a guide it is always a treat to […]
An early start was the key to success Tuesday morning as Riaz and I got on the water at daylight. Living in San Francisco hasn’t afforded Riaz any opportunities at redfish on the fly so he was eager to get a shot at his first. We didn’t have to wait long before we were hooked […]
Had the pleasure of fishing with the Kerr family this day. With the low winds and mostly clear skies it was a very successful day. In the morning I took out the son James Albert and the mom Dawn. Well immediately we start catching fish. Dawn gets her first red on the fly and James Albert has 8 […]
After dropping off the guys from the morning trip I got a quick bite to eat and got in touch with a friend of mine Capt Paul Swett for some afternoon action. We arrived at dead low tide which in Venice is great. The water clears up and the fish become stacked up in schools […]
