Late season report 02/2/22
Cold water fishing! Love it so much when they just float there and don’t want to do anything. They cannot deny a well placed slow moving crab though. It’s that time of year here in Louisina that the water temps are crazy low in the 40’s and 50’s with giants laying around doing nothing in 1 foot of water. This is such a special time of year and a testament to redfish being one of the most resilient fish that swim the gulf. They can stand some brutally cold conditions and then we see them all the way down in Big Pine Key in 90 degree water! What a fish and if you are going to fish redfish there is no better place than the Louisina Marsh- it is the mecca. I would stack it up against anywhere in the world fly fishing for consistent trophy fish day in day out. I consistently see these fish charge the skiff to inspect us and see what we are- so crazy. I have found the later months Jan-March very cold and very clean. The water quality is very stable and something that we can count on, we just can’t count on Mother Nature always! Let me know if you ever want to come down or if you are looking for a Everglades Fly Fishing Guide or Naples Fly Fishing Guide I can help you out with some great area guides that fish there year round.
Have fun out there!
