It has been a late spring with cold fronts continuing to hit south Florida through early April…. Things have warmed up and the Tarpon are thick. We have been seeing a lot of laid up fish in the back and the fish on the ocean have been poring making for great fly fishing!!
We have had a colder than usual March here in Louisiana. With Air temperatures at times the coldest we have had all year, the fly fishing for monster red fish has been on fire! The water temps have remained cool keeping the big bull red fish in our inshore shallow water fishery. The sight fishing for these fish has been incredible and when we aren’t throwing flies at them, top water plugs have been getting crushed….. We are seeing a lot of schooling fish allowing for opportunities at double and triple headers! I was even able to get out for a day of fishing and caught my personal best 42 lb red fish on fly!!!!
The red fishing has been good as of late. We have been able to go out into the Louisiana marsh and fly fish for giant red fish in extremely shallow water. February brings cold fronts and in between these front we get the blue bird skies and light wind making for excellent sight fishing opportunities. I love when these giant red fish get hooked up and take you into the backing off the flat… when this happens a lot of the time they bring back some of their buddies creating opportunities for double headers!!
February in the Louisiana marsh is a great time to fish. We have cold water temps which bring in a majority of the big Louisiana red fish and monster black drum creating awesome sight fishing opportunities for fly fishing. These fish start to get further and further back into our estuary trying to find the warmth and forage that our shallow ponds have to offer. It’s incredible when you pull into a shallow pond that is off of big water and these monster fish are scattered throughout making for a lot of fun on the water. Guiding anglers to world class fish every day is a blast and I love seeing the smiles on my anglers faces after they have success.
Big Nasty’s last….
The weather crushed us for the first few weeks of January…. Clouds, wind, rain!!! It went from almost 80 degrees to in the low 30′s….. Through it all we had to grind it out knowing that there were tons of fish around. Cloudy windy days still produced big fish and presented anglers with the close up and down casts that were given to them due to the conditions. The weather has started to stabilize over the past coupe days and the fly fishing opportunities for giant red fish have gotten better by the day. With the sun we have been able to see them from a long ways out making it easier to sight fish these studs. January is a great time of the year especially when you get some decent weather!!
Well its been a fun past few weeks in the Louisiana Marsh. We have had above normal temps and the fish have been super happy floating around everywhere… These big Louisiana red fish will float right on top when the upper water column gets warmer then the bottom making for some incredible sight fishing opportunities for fly anglers… Polling around hunting….

Its been a great start to the month of December in the Louisiana Marsh. We are having above normal air temps which have all the big red fish floating all over the ponds and small bays. Fly fishing for these monster fish in shallow ponds can get your heart rate up and makes for some incredible sight fishing. The red fishing in the Louisiana marsh is thriving after everything its been through and is a great place to fish year round!
Well its been a great month in the Louisiana marsh… We have had some incredible fly fishing for these big bull red fish that have covered up our fishery. Tons of fish in the 20 lb range and just as many in the low to mid 30 lb range. As the cold fronts have started to come through on a regular basis, the water has cleaned up tremendously and there are big louisiana red fish floating all everywhere. I love guiding anglers to a fish of a lifetime… the beautiful thing about this time of the year is that a majority of the shots we are getting are at these size fish. As the cold fronts continue to come throughout the winter months these fish will continue…… Read more »
This fish was just shy of 43 lbs, a world record fish if we were fishing IGFA standards..
Its been a great season so far and there are a ton of big fish around. Finally getting caught up on doing a post while our first hard front of the year blows through. We are getting temps down in the 40′s at night which will drive even more big fish into the marsh. Over the past couple weeks the fish have started to transition a bit from the outside areas of the marsh into some of the protected ponds. This is what we have been waiting for and with this cold front it will get even better. we have been catching a ton of fish in the low to mid 20# range and a good number if fish in the 30-40# range with the biggest so far just over 42 lbs. We have been getting a lot of shots at….. Read more »
We have had a great past few weeks in the marsh. The weather is starting to cool off and the big schools of red fish and jacks are jamming up the marsh. We have had a lot of good fly fishing opportunities but one of the coolest things to do is throw poppers at…….. Read more »
