As advertised when we reached the first flat in the Biloxi marsh it seemed like no time and I was taking a shot at an over 25 lbs redfish floating just under the surface. With a well placed 5 inch grey and olive mullet fly, and some timely striping, the next thing I saw, was some huge white lips clamping down on my fly! I was hooked up and the fight was on! Me, and Cody took turns for the next 4 hours smashing pumpkins as we like to say! We managed to catch 10 over 20 lbs, with the biggest being 28 lbs. what a day!! Me and Cody both agreed, we didn't need a camera to document the memories we had burned into our brains, by those big ole reds!!!
Capt. Travis was booked today and fished with the writer, and producer of Monk, Doogie Houser MD, Northern Exposure, and many other shows that we all have seen. They pulled 7 nice 12-17lbs reds in the boat on a black and purple crab pattern. We all agreed that, the reds would have eaten most any fly properly placed into their face today!
Tight lines to some huge redfish, and here's to guides day off, with no phones or cameras! Thank god for days like today!!!
