New Fall Red Fish Report for Venice, LA...Great Fishing!

No sooner that the airplane wheels hit the landing strip from his return from the jungles of South America after a great Peacock Bass trip and he's off to the beaches and bays of the Mississippi Delta for Bull Reds! This report just in from Venice, LA and Captain Keith's camp by our friend and Redfish specialist Gary Clark.

Arrived Venice, LA this trip just in time for a big cold front. Fought wind and waves for first two days but caught bull reds anyway---along with some unwanted but very acrobatic black tip sharks. Then, finally, some great weather on the last day thanks to a welcomed high pressure system in the Gulf. Very warm with no wind. 40 bull reds in the boat with all well over 28". Two 32 pounders topped the catch. Plastics prevailed with Tsunami split tail minnows and the new Bomber mud minnows producing best. We experienced some of the most spectacular strikes and feeding frenzy ever! Total catch for the 3 days was 84 reds, 2 trout and many sharks (unfortunately!). Thanks to Capt. Keith for another great trip!


If you want to get in on the Fall Feedin' Frenzy of these Giant Bull Reds give me a call an we'll set you up for the "fishing adventure of a lifetime"...the Captain has a few select dates remaining for 2010.
