Along the Cape Fear Coast, winter means big schools of hungry redfish in gin clear water. Fishing has been extremely good when the weather permits with great sight-fishing on fly as well as light tackle. Trout fishing has been good but we have not been seeing as many large fish, lots of spikes. With warm weather just around the corner we are excited about what this spring/summer has to bring. Excited to get back on the grass flats in pursuit of some tailing redfish. Should be an exciting summer with many fish and even more memories.
It was a great fall and early winter in Hopedale, Louisiana. October, November and December have always been my favorite months to fish the Louisiana marsh. As the water and air temperatures begin to cool off, large amounts of mature bull redfish move from the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico up into the shallow water of the Louisiana marsh. This season has been full of large schools of floating fish, great topwater action and many double ups. Call today and set up a trip for next season if you didn’t get the chance to make it out on the water this past fall/early winter.
Earlier this spring we set out with our drone to capture some fly fishing action near Wrightsville Beach, NC. What we caught on film was pretty amazing. A school of about 300 redfish stacked up in the marsh eager to eat a fly.
