Today I had Ramsey Barfield ( aka- fliesitdies) from Baton Rouge onboard for a great day of fishing. Our plan was to start the day off chasing trout then go into my Redfish honey hole for some shallow water sight casting, you have to love it when a plan actually comes together becsuse our day worked out just like we planned.
We had to cover some water early today in search of the trout but every stop we made produced a handful of keeper trout , we started out by drifting reefs in Mud Lake and Lake Mechant and we where steady filling up the cooler but I decided to go check some deep marsh winter holes and that's where we found the Big trout stacked up as where catching beautiful trout up 21 inches today.
When we finished up with our trout fishing it was time to do what Ramsey had been looking forward to all day, shallow water sight casting Redfish !! When we arrived at the honey hole Ramsey couldnt believe it ,we went less than 20 yards and we had already sight casted 5 Redfish. It was unbelievable Redfishing today with the shallow water, we easily saw over 30 Redfish tailing and at one point Ramsey got of the boat and actuslly crawled through the marsh to get to some Redfish that where to shallow to get to with the boat.
Our trout where caught on Matrix Shad, the all new HLT Swimmers Jr and the Shiny Hiney. The HLT swimmers really put a hurt on the Redfish today !!!
Give me a call to experience this great fishing we are having.
