I had the occasion to do some red fishing at the Grosse Savanne marsh south of Lake Charles Louisiana. It took me a little time to get the feel of the bite but once I did it was game on for me and the fish. Most of the reds that I caught were from 28 to 30 inched and weighed 12 to 14 pounds. I caught them on frozen and thawed shrimp, on a light jig head. The water was fairly shallow by my standards so the big fish couldn't go down but they sure fought 360 degrees around the boat. Each one was a pleasure to catch. Also caught flounder,trout an black drum. very exciting fishing that ended with sore arms.
