2 Days of Redfishing for the Mississippi Boys

Micheal Anthony brought down a big group from Mississippi to stay at the Reel Inn and experience some good food and fishing. Shawn P took care of the food part while myself, Capt. Marty and Rob helped me out with the fishing part. Phillip, Jim, and Hames fished with me both days. The trout are still being a pain but the reds have picked up the slack. Day 1 we found low water and high winds. We stayed protected and drifted banks putting a mess of reds and drum together using bait shrimp under a cork. Day 2 started off with low winds and hungry gnats. We started in the same area as day 1 but only put 2 drum and a head on ice before the wind picked up and we had to change locations. I went real shallow and with Jim taking the rest of the day off and becoming a spectator it was up to James and Phillip to fill the box. We put away the corks and turned to Green Hornet Matrix tightlined. With the shallow water the reds were spread out from near the bank to about 30ft off. Covering ground was the key and for some reason the reds were real good at spitting the hook even after several runs. By noon the guys put together a good box and we headed back to the dock for some Shawn P fried fish, frog legs, and oysters before the guys headed back to Mississippi. ThanksShawn P, Capt. Marty and Rob for helping me out.

Good looking haul Captain! Any suggestions on where I might find a few reds to catch in Dularge? I’d even be happy with black drum or sheephead. Thanks in advance

Pick any of the lakes and get on the leeward side and start drifting. We did catch the best when we ran into pockets of mullet. When you catch one put the Powerpole down and give it a few catch. Might find a little pile especially with the drum.
