Great Day of fishing near New Orleans with Victory Bay Charters

Different Strategy Produces Redfish

George and Christine travel all over the world to hunt and fish. They came down and booked a New Orleans fishing charter with Victory Bay Charters. We left the dock around noon and made a short run to a pond that has been holding good numbers of redfish all winter. The trick on this trip was not working the shorelines, as the bait in the pond was concentrated in the center, away from the shore. After working over some windward shoreline initially, I kept noticing where the bait was. As well as the barely noticeable disturbances on the surface of the water, made by Redfish on the prowl. We anchored down right in the middle of the pond and broadcasted each cast all around the boat. In a few minutes drag was running and I was reaching for the net. This method steadily put reds in the box until they reached their limit. The weather actually turned out to be beautiful and with Spring-like temps and fish on ice, made for a great day
