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
Blue sky’s and warming temps made Fly Fishing New Orleans an absolute blast today! The last few day’s we have experienced clouds and a severe cold front dropping our temps to under 35 degrees after dark. Last night the temp stayed above 58 degrees and the sky’s cleared with light to 0 wind making the waters of the Louisiana Marsh glass calm. We new the fishing would pick up as the day progressed. Around 12:30 pm the warm temps had the time to warm the surface temps and the 25+ pound Redfish began floating to enjoy the warmth! This is what New Orleans Redfishing is all about!
I had John and Keven from Nashville on the boat today. We polled the waters of the Louisiana Marsh in search of Bull Redfish and we found loads of them!! The Redfish were crawling the shorelines in 12 inches of water almost everywhere we polled! The fish ranged in size of 24 pounds to the upper 30′s with a shot at 1 fish that REAL BIG! The Louisiana Marsh is fishing very well as the waters warm a bit the fish are really actively feeding. The last shoreline we fished offered a tailing Bull Redfish every hundred feet!! We pulled a 29.5 pounder from that zone. The guy’s are staying in the French Quarter this evening for some early Mardi Gras action on Bourbon St. and some New Orleans food from GW Finns. Tight Lines
