This morning there was a chill in the air whispering hints that the fall season approaches. Soon the waters of the Biloxi Marsh will become clear enough to see 3 feet deep. The prime season for bull redfish is close at hand. High east winds and clouds are the normal weather pattern at the moment. This pattern pushes water into the marsh causing extremely high tides. Louisiana redfish sit on the bottom during these conditions making sight fishing difficult. There are plenty of fish out there but weather conditions caused me to cancel multiple trips. Any day I can fish is producing a great number of shots.

I am going to take one last vacation before the fury of trips begins in October. October is generally a great month with cooler weather, no bugs, and light winds. My skiff is prepped and my Bronco is sound. In a week or two more the explosion of fish should begin. The year started off with a bang and we should all prey to the fish gods for a continuation of this bounty.

Giants on the shores

September has finally arrived. Temperatures are no longer going above 90 degrees for the high. The bull redfish have spawned for the most part. Now the big girls are swimming deep shorelines looking to replenish their girth. I am seeing way more 20+ pound fish than last year. I am not sure if the fishing is better or my tactics have changed but it doesn't matter. It is great to see so many big fish.

I am currently enjoying the filming aspect of my business. I always wished the world could see my fishing adventures. There are so many incredible sights out in the marsh and a still camera just doesn't catch the essence. I get some good footage but I miss a lot of the action. Oh well the camera can not run all the time. 

Bulls of Summer video
My last two trips have been spectacular. September 1 I sighted at least 25 bull redfish. Every stop would yield 4 or 5 good shots at high quality fish. September 2 was great too. I did not see near as many fish but there were still plenty of giants on the shores.
