The season down in Louisiana just gets better and better. November is here and with it brings promise of cooler temps and Bull Redfish. We have been fishing to Redfish in excess of 30 pounds for some time now and with cool weather ever chilling the waters of the Biloxi Marsh out of Hopedale soon all the area’s that hold these big Redfish will be fishing well. We have a bit of wind in the forecast for the upcoming week but lot’s of sunshine and lee shorelines… I means miles and miles of it so will still be a great week of fishing. I look forward to sticking Redfish on Fly in some my winter time area’s. Captain Doug Henderson
Capt. Doug Henderson with Salted Flats Fly Fishing gives Angler’s a detailed description of a day Fly Fishing for Trophy Louisiana Bull Redfish.
High Pressure and cold clear water is what December Redfish season in the Biloxi Marsh is famous for. We nothing less than perfect conditions today and the fish new it and enjoyed it as much as we did. Shot after shot the ENTIRE DAY at Bull Redfish over 20 pounds. My Anglers were pretty worked at the end of the day having never held still as a result of either casting or fighting a monster Bull. Wintertime Redfish in Louisiana! Enjoy the pics! Capt.

A great day on the water out of Hopedale, La. Bull Redfish in great number’s most of the areas we fished throughout the day. We were on so many fish we ended hooking up on a stud while resetting the Fly Line in the Stripping Bucket. Unbelievable!! December in the Louisiana Marsh is off the charts. Come stay in New Orleans and enjoy the food and entertainment it’s famous for while sticking Stud Redfish each day! Enjoy the pics… Capt. Doug Henderson
Salted Flats Fly Fishing has Redfish fever and we are looking forward to some Venice, Louisiana Bull Redfish starting October 1st. We also will start fishing Hopedale, Louisiana as well. The water’s of the Biloxi Marsh begin to hold the massive Bull Redfish mid September but the water tends to be a bit off color. Early October you can expect to find very fishable water’s loaded with 30+ pound fish. For those Angler’s who do not want to make the 2 hour trip to Venice every day Hopedale is an easy 45 minute drive from New Orleans and offers the same fly fishing opportunities as the Venice water’s. We will be fishing these water’s from October 1st – March 1st.
Mardi Gras season and Louisiana Fly Fishing! With Fat Tuesday a day away all the Saints are on there worst behavior and the city is bustling with festive Parades and Parties alike. It’s time for food, fun, and flats fishing! We hit the road for Hopedale this morning for a day of Fly Fishing for Louisiana Redfish. The day before was riddled with very high winds upwards of 30 mph but this morning promised clearing sky’s and the winds to lay down which they did. We had plenty of shot’s at the 5-10 pound range fish all morning and fed 2 and caught 1. This afternoon we decided to try and find some bigger fish so from noon till about 2 we polled the deeper open Gulf water’s and got a couple of shot’s at 15-25 pound fish and caught 1. Jay had a flight to catch so we left the water at 2. As the afternoon progressed the bigger Redfish were definitely pushing back up on the Flats after seeking refuge from yesterday’s high winds in the deeper water. Looking forward to tomorrow!

Had a good time with Jack and Steve from Oregon the last 3 days. They stayed in the French Quarter and enjoyed the great food of the surrounding area. We fished out of Hopedale targeting the Monster Louisiana Redfish on the Fly Rod as well as Spin Gear. Fly Fishing the Louisiana Marsh is by far the best place for Redfish over 20 pounds on a daily basis! Tight Lines
Another great day on the water with the Illinois boy’s. Check out John’s 32 pounder and the Chicago Muskey King Charles 24 pounder! We left from New Orleans Louisiana to chase the famed Hopedale, Louisiana Bull Redfish on Fly. The Biloxi Marsh Bull Redfish were there in great numbers floating on the surface! What a day…
The Boy’s from Chicago and I found big numbers of these 25-35 lbs. fishing today!! Gotta love Blue Bird Days on the Louisiana Marsh out of New Olreans. Fly Fishing for Hopedale, Louisiana Bull Redfish provides the Angler with a day stocked full of Redfish to target! Tight Lines
