Mike’s last day of Louisiana redfishing

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 […]

Dec 30 -Jan 2

I fished these four days with two young men visiting from Japan. Since my clients spoke very little English, we had to rely on the basics of fishing to communicate.  During this four day trip, my only interactions with these young men consisted of “cast here”,” reel fast”, “reel slow”, “jig” and “set the hook.”  With […]

12 yr Old With a Huge Redfish He Caught on the Fly

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 […]

Sharks on the Fly

Had a friend come in town to buy my old boat and while he was down we decided to go look around Venice.  We found clear water big redfish and sharks lots of sharks.  The redfish were being a little difficult to get to bite so we went after the sharks.  We got 3 to […]

Sunday Sept.18

David and Kevin of baton rouge giving it their best, as was I , rough water, dirty water, 50% clouds, approaching front, 20mph ESE winds with gust, fish would not go out of their way for the fly’s and shots at VISIBLE fish where few. These guys fished hard! Had some shots at 30lb. jacks […]

The Wood Women

With blue bird skies and just a slight breeze I figure I could take my girlfriend Lauren and her mother Lele out to do some easy sight fishing for some hungry redfish.  Well the water was not as clear as i wanted but still we were able to see. The problem was there was no tide and […]

Venice in August

I fished the IFA redfish tour Louisiana division this weekend out of Grand Isle and finished 9th.  It was a good finish overall and I can always be happy with a top ten finish. Although due to a miserable boat ride from Venice to Grand Isle then back to Venice then back to Grand Isle I […]

8/18 Fly Fishing Early Morning Redfish

Fly fishing guru Damon Newpher’s of Pennsylvanian fly.( www.pa-flyfishing.com). We had another early start of a day, lots of happy reds early and Damon took full advantage. Whacking a red about every five minutes or so, I think he might be mad at our Louisiana redfish!! Don’t know how many we whacked but whack’em he did. […]

8/21 Tailing Summer Redfish

Fished with Mr. Ewald and Ms. Kelly from www.grabherflyfishing.com.  Conditions weren’t the best in the marsh today but skilled casters on the boat made the best of it.  Neither Kelly nor Ewald had ever caught a redfish before and Kelly was looking to land her first saltwater fish on the fly.  Ewald was able to […]

8/20 Big Nasty Summertime Redfish

I had Ted & Kim of www.fishermensspot.com today on board,  going for the GIANTS! rolled out at 4:00am to catch a perfect condition for some trophy class redfish. Our early arrival  to THE SPOT really paid off, the bigguns where already there waiting for a crab fly breakfast and I had the anglers on board to serve […]

8/19 Duck Pond Redfish

Had Jeff & Tony  from Colorado today chasing redfish back in the duck ponds, little or no tide made it a tough day on the water. Fish would eat the shrimp pattern flies the best today but were  kind of picky! Really wanted perfect fly placement. Great casters on the skiff makes a bad day […]

8/20 Quad Slam

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 […]

8/18-8/19 Redfish Tells

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 […]

8/17 Deja Vu

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 […]

8/16 Early Redfish Action

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 […]

8/13 Venice Day 2

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 […]

8/12 Afternoon

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 […]

8/12 Venice, Louisiana aka Redfish Mecca

Capt Greg Moon and I had a great group of guys fishing with us this day.  Due to the poor water clarity on the east side we convinced the guys to take the ride down to Venice where the clarity has been good and the numbers of fish have been great.  Everyone caught fish, Moon’s […]

The Moon Sled

Capt Greg Moon and I had a pretty good time testing his new East Cape Fury . This boat is pretty incredible. I may just be saying that because Im also getting one in the next week or so  but the facts don’t lie.  The boat is setup perfectly with great storage and rigged out […]

8/6 Tailing Redfish

Hoping to get back on the fish Rocky and I saw two days ago I let Skip know early we were going to be taking a ride.  After the 45 min boat ride we pull up to the flat and immediately start seeing movement. As we pushed closer we started seeing tails, big tails. Taking it slow […]

8/4 Scout Trip

Rocky and I took advantage of the calm winds and made a scout trip way south.  Here we found plenty of redfish, some bull reds, and clean water.  Although we didn’t catch the bigger reds in the school we did manage some 10-12lbers and one going about 16lbs. (good one for summer time)  All the […]

7/31 Pretty Good, Bad Day

Back at the homewaters the fish were not acting like they were in Venice.  With clear skies and relatively light winds you would think it would be an easy day. Well the fish were not moving like they have been. The water has warmed a little since last week and the clarity was very poor. […]

7/28 – 7/30 FAUX PAS

                    I had a great time fishing the Faus Pas fishing Rodeo With Brock and his Mom Stacey. All three days we caught a ridiculous amount of fish. Brock is by far the best junior angler I have ever seen. Although we didn’t catch any good […]

Morning Redfish Action

Moon and I hit the water early to try and get some action before the heat became unbearable.  Well lets just say we got what we were looking for. Sneak peak of summer footage

More Heat = Less Active Fish

Fished the usual areas yesterday. The wind shifted out to the north which is good if it can get some water out of the marsh.  Seems lately with these higher waters the schooled fish have broken up and spread out.  Although we still saw around 40-50 fish today the majority of those fish were extremely spooky. But […]
