Best 2 Day Red Bite Ever

Site Sponsor
Mike Rowe from Indiana and his long time buddy Fred from Houston came down south to get their first experience of Louisiana fishing. They didn’t want anything to do with trout so we focused only on reds. We fished current lines both days and the bite was absolutely insane. They had no plans to keep fish so I kept count on the clicker just to see their total count. Sunday was day one and when Mike caught 2 reds on 2 casts I knew it was going to be good. What I didn’t know was how good it would be. We started with bait shrimp but quickly turned to Matrix Shad. On day one the reds were everycast and color of plastic didn’t matter. The guys caught 118 reds and called it quits a little after 11. Day two the tide was coming in instead of falling so I wasn’t sure what was going to happen but the reds were hungry again. They favored the Pink Champagne Matrix over any other color. It wasn’t everycast like Sunday but the guys still caught 101 reds and called it quits a little after 12. Their two day total was 219 reds and 8-10 drum. And to think I netted all of them. Lol Typically February is a tough month for fishing so it was nice to see these guys get to experience something so special.
