I've been on pretty epic redfish trips recently, and this video perfectly captures that experience as well as sharing a few fishing tips.

What Happened

Marsh in the immediate area of Pointe a la Hache has cleaned up considerably ever since the river begun dropping earlier this year. 

While river water can make fishing tough in that area, and has certainly changed the landscape with the addition of Mardi Gras Pass in 2011, the redfish action becomes unparalleled once the river recedes, inviting in clean and, eventually, saltier water.

But here's the secret: redfish do great in freshwater and (if you really know a thing or two about redfish biology) then you know they do great in freshwater, which is why we catch them next to blue cats and largemouth bass. 

All you have to do is find a good shoreline with healthy aquatic grass, some clean water and plenty of bait.

That's exactly what I did in this fishing trip, and I take you to one of my favorite fishing spots that I had recently discovered. 

I found this special shoreline using the fishing tips in this guide to sight fishing redfish in Louisiana.

However, my very best way of teaching anyone how to catch redfish like what you see in this video is Sight Fishing Mastery School, a specialized course I created specifically for sight fishing redfish right here in Louisiana.

Sight fishing redfish is a lot of fun, and you don't need much to get started.

Sure, a fancy stand and shallow drafting boat is nice, but you'll see that was totally unnecessary and is usually the case on most trips like these.

Remember that the fish can see you, too. So being lower is an advantage and, the lower you are, the closer redfish will get to the boat before spooking.

If you're doing it right, you will be able to catch them right off the trolling motor!

I hope you enjoy this video and find the redfish sight fishing tips in it useful, and something you use to have fun sight fishing redfish as well.

Exact Fishing Location

The secret to catching limits of redfish is not specific fishing spots but rather selecting where to fish based upon the conditions.

This is an in-depth topic that can't be covered in a few paragraphs of text and that's the reason why I have two videos accompanying the YouTube video you watched above.

They are the Planning Video and Post Trip Review. They can be accessed via the button below, but are only accessible to members of LAFB Elite, since it is that membership that makes all of this possible in the first place.

The planning video details where I decided to fish based upon the conditions, and the Post Trip Review displays my boat's GPS tracks, revealing routes and exact fishing locations.

These tracks are made available to members of LAFB Elite for uploading to their own GPS.

We also look at the conditions that actually happened versus what was predicted. 

This is a great learning tool and the fastest way you can learn to catch great boxes of fish 100% on your own.
