Spring swing early March
As usual the weather in the spring can be tough. Windy cloudy days seem to be the norm. Giant bull redfish are still out there but the numbers have decreased with wind creating dirty water. I have been running up in the Biloxi marsh to gin clear honey holes. We are seeing good numbers of summer sized 4-8 pound fish. The occasional 10-12 pounder also gets thrown in the mix.
Even deep in the marsh the bigger redfish seem to be on the bottom in 2-3 feet of water. I am running across active fish on the lee banks. Most of the time up in a broken piece of marsh. When there is no sun for sight fishing blind casting sinking flies 10-20 feet from the bank can be effective. My customers are happy with the amount of shots and the powerful fighters. The fish may be smaller but the fun factor sky rocketed.
