End of April

Gin clear water
The fishing at the end of April has been spectacular. The wind conditions have been tough but the redfish are everywhere. Clean clear water is producing lots of shots for clients. The redfish really stand out like pumpkins in a field swimming over the dark summertime grasses produced by the marsh.    

This time of year I have my clients casting gold or copper colored spoon flies. The flash of the spoon is irresistible for the aggressive redfish. If you find a clear pond with lots of blue crabs you are on the fish. Finding clear water can be difficult for some anglers. The clean water is found in ponds and bayous that dead end away from the main channels.
Gold and Copper spoon flies

The New Orleans weather right now is perfect for fishing. Mid to upper 70's makes for comfortable fishing conditions. If you are lucky enough to book a sunny day with low winds I can almost guarantee tons of sight fishing shots at numerous summertime redfish. Right now is a charter captain's delight.
