Louisiana is universally regarded as the premier redfish destination on Earth. As temps grow cooler and days get shorter, big bull reds begin to move into the nearshore waters. The slot-sized redfish that we chase all year quickly become an afterthought when oversized bulls float to the surface. Fly fishing for redfish doesn’t get any more exciting than casting at these orange behemoths.
Less than two hours from New Orleans, Grand Isle is an easily accessible destination. Waterfront lodging is provided for up to two anglers, so there’s no need to worry with booking a room. December – February in Louisiana can be very cold, so prepare to dress appropriately on the water. Layer with thermals and windproof outerwear. Don’t forget the rain jacket.
