Happy Angler’s with their Louisiana Redfish! Crazy weather in November with clouds and wind. As you can see the fishery still provides more shots to Fly Angler’s than needed to have a huge day on the water with Salted Flats Fly Fishing! We are looking forward to December and more Bull Redfish but till then Happy Thanksgiving from Louisiana! Captain Doug Henderson
A windy day on the Louisiana Marsh Fly Fishing for Bull Redfish is truly not a problem. It was gusting as high as 25mph yesterday but the water was crystal clear and the Redfish were crawling and floating the shorelines making for easy targets! Lot’s of fun regardless of conditions to see and cast to these Marsh beasts. A couple more day’s of wind ahead…am I worried absolutely NOT! Looking forward to each day on the Marsh as always.

Capt. Doug Henderson with Salted Flats Fly Fishing gives Angler’s a detailed description of a day Fly Fishing for Trophy Louisiana Bull Redfish.
Had another big day with Doc and Chris. We basically had endless opportunities for Bull Redfish today on the super clear water’s of the Louisiana Gulf Coast. I love wintertime Redfish season in Louisiana from October to the end of March! Looking forward to tomorrow! Captain Doug Henderson
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
New Orleans, La. lies in the center of the Louisiana Marsh which is the winter home to giant Bull Redfish. This day we experienced some high winds but still managed to get some good shots. Here’s a few pics of a fish we hooked! Enjoy!
I enjoyed a half day trip this beautiful morning. We had clear sky’s and crystal clear water accompanied by a light breeze. The Bull Redfish were enjoying the morning as well sitting up in the shallows motionless soaking up the warm sun and providing great shot after shot. We had opportunities at 8-10 fish above 25 pounds from 8:30 AM-11:00 AM. Not bad at all! Could only imagine if we had then 4-5 hours to fish… Here’s a pic of the 30 pounder we caught. Enjoy! Capt. Doug Henderson
The waters have cleared from the Algae Bloom that accompanies water temps over 70 degrees. The end of Sept. and all of October were full of Giant Schools of Spawning Redfish totally willing to eat top water poppers! We have had a series of really nice cold fronts that have dropped our water temps into the zone we like of 50-65 degrees. The Redfish have ended there Spawn and are now scattered all over the Louisiana Marsh crushing Flies. This is the winter Redfish season in Louisiana when Bull’s come in and reveal themselves in super shallow ponds perfect for sight fishing too. We experienced some unseasonable high winds the last few day’s and stayed inner Marsh to enjoy some Louisiana’s smaller 10-15 pound fish out of the wind. Enjoy the pics! Capt. Doug Henderson
A sort of tough day out on the Marsh today. The Redfish were not showing themselves very well and we only managed about 15 shots at fish over 20 pounds. We managed to get one to eat but also had a blast with Jack’s who were out in force! Huge schools of monster Jack’s kept us very busy most of the day. Maybe that’s why we didn’t notice more of the Redfish. Gotta love fall in the Louisiana Marsh! Capt. Doug Henderson
An awesome day on the water of the Biloxi Marsh in Louisiana! We had schools of Bull Redfish as well as Jack’s pushing banks and aggressively feeding all day. This time of year the Louisiana Redfish group up into massive schools in a pre spawn ritual. When the fish are grouped up like this which resembles a sea of orange surrounding the Skiff they can be rather competitive towards eating, making them ideal for targeting on Popper Fly’s. Bull Redfish on Popper’s enough said… The water’s continue to clear making site fishing these Bull’s all the better. Enjoy the Pics, Doug Henderson
