Freezing temperatures but its not stopping the redfish feeding frenzy!!!
I had the oppurtunity to take out some guys from Dever last thursday and we caught our limit of 20 reds in about 30 minutes. Fishing plastics under a popping on the edge of grass lines was the ticket. We found that the fish where more agressive with the marsh works 3' bayou thumper shrimp color but you had to dip it in the spike it garlic sent. On Friday I had five guys from slidell that where determined to fish in 30 degree weather and i have to say i did not expect the fish to bite as good as they did with the water temp. in the low 40's. We fished one point with marsh works baits again but tipped with dead shrimp and we caught 25 reds in about 40 minutes then caught and released about another dozen or so reds before we left to try and find some trout. Tuesdays trip was a little slow until about 10am then it was on fire from there. Tide was extremely low then around 10 it started to rise and thats all she wrote. 20 reds boated in about twenty minutes. It has been a cold week and the redfish are loving it! Come down and book a trip and we will put you on some of the best redfishing action of the year! We boated over 180 reds in three day!

For all you duck hunters i went and checked my property this morning and the ducks are everywhere! I dont think I've seen this many birds down in about 8 years, its going to be an awesome second split. I am booked for the entire first week of the second split but I have a few open days after christmas. I also have one other guide that has some openings for this week so if you want to get out and experience what the second split has to offer give us a call and we will put you on the birds.
