Fishing Through the Fronts

 

Conditions in the Louisiana marsh and along the coast seem to be ever changing. Last week the water temps and clarity were a major issue. The temperature was down in the low 50's and the water was too dirty to see fish very well in some places. With the number of fronts that have rolled through, the red fish seem to be confused. They were basically laying on the bottom and wouldn't move until you ran over them with the boat. Many of the fish that were seen would bolt as soon as clients made a cast and presented a fly. We were able to get aq few nice ones including this 23 pounder. The conditions weren't made any better by the fact that tide movements have been very small. We will continue to chase red fish and hope the conditions improve.
