Battling big reds in Louisiana

Written by Conor Harrison, LSON

Lone Star Outdoor News’ Craig Nyhus is spending a few days in Louisiana with the team from Skeeter Boats, including JoAnne O’Bryant, and he reports the fishing for big redfish is some of the best he has ever seen.

“We are fishing with Capt. Terry Lambert with Cajun Fishing Adventures based in Buras,” Craig said. “We’ve caught 55 to 60 redfish between 30 and 40 inches. I’d say they all weighed between 15 and 20 pounds.”

Craig said the group dodged a few thunderstorms this morning, but went right back into the area after the rains cleared out and the fishing picked right back up.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said. “We’ve had at least 10 doubles.”

Craig spent the lunch hours today in the pool in an attempt to loosen up sore muscles from catching so many big fish.

“My fingers aren’t working,” he said.
