Shadow on the water

The early winter months are the top season for targeting big Redfish in the Louisiana marsh. So when Tom calls and is in the need for a fishing partner, I jump in the car.

Captain Tom Campbell follows the best fishing around the gulf og Mexico, so for the months from November trough January -Louisiana is Tom's home water.

This time a cold front had just passed, so even for a post scandinavian it was bitterly cold. Blessed by blue sky and some calm winds, we had some really great days of fishing. 

The days started with a lot of wind and for some reason the fish were spooky in the morning. Close to lunchtime the wind died down and the fish showed up.

We saw some really big fish and tight line to a really big Sheepshead - but the big one got away
