Redfish Slam

Reply
Enjoyed a beautiful day on the DU with a great family from Katy, Texas. Got a call from David Muir who wanted to catch some big reds with his wife Debbie and daughter Lauren. They arrived at the 'Lakehouse' around 7 am and we headed south in search of the bronze backs. Our first stop did not produce a single fish but our second stop was golden. The crew had very little experience catching big reds as the trio were surprised of the brute strength of the fish. They quickly learned the 'redfish shuffle' with double and triple hook ups. David and his family couldn't get enough and they wore out the reds along with themselves. This was a first for this crew and it's always a pleasure to introduce something new to people that we sometimes take for granted. David is coming back with his 2 other daughters soon and wants to book a trout trip this summer. I think it's safe to say he's hooked on the DU!Big thanks to Capts Travis Lovell and Brady Giroir for helping out with Bo Bo Clark and crew from MS. Good luck fishing.

Great catch out there capt. I had my friend's boss and his 8 year old son on board with me saturday morning. With the trout fishing slacking off lately we tried for the first hour of daylight picking up a few nice trout but I noticed his son getting bored pretty quickly in the back of the boat.... Decided to head down to the pass and give bullred fishing a try for the first time ever, and man it paid off! I'm not too big on catching those huge redfish and drum but that little kid couldn't stop smiling all day long. He had a blast. Honestly one of my proudest times fishing out of Dularge was seeing him reel in those nasty monsters haha
