You’re used to seeing the marshes and bayous of South Louisiana, but in the latest episode of Marsh Man Masson, we’re doing things a little bit differently.
Three decades ago, Mrs. Marsh Man and I lived for about 18 months in Lakeland, Fla., and as you might guess, I was a fanatical fisherman back then, just like I am today. The bass fishing there was absolutely incredible, and I did a ton of it.
The Lakeland paper had a weekly fishing report, and the reporter always wrote about snook fishing near Tampa, and back then, I desperately wanted to catch a snook, but I just really couldn’t afford it. I didn’t have a boat for it, and I couldn’t hire a guide.
Since that time, though, I’ve dreamed of catching a snook.
Enter Capt. C.A. Richardson.
A year or two ago, we fished together in the marshes of lower Plaquemines Parish, and I mentioned that catching a snook was on my bucket list. C.A. graciously invited me to come down and fish Crystal River, Fla., with him, and I finally got the chance to take him up on it the first week of April.
This is the first video from my Florida excursion.
