Book a Redfishing Guide Trip OnlineFly fishing the Louisiana marsh and bayous below New Orleans, known as the Biloxi marsh, is one of the greatest saltwater fisheries in the united states and the best in the world for redfish. The fertile Mississippi river feeds the New Orleans saltwater marsh environment which leads to incredible fly fishing for big redfish. Your Louisiana redfish are massive, mean and readily take flys. These redfish make runs like bulldogs and can easily double over your fly rod and put you into the backing of the fly line. Louisiana redfish swim in such shallow clear water you actually see the entire body as it swims silently which make them great sight fishing targets.

Three to eight pound Louisiana redfish are the most common size to catch on fly, but the big boys called bull redfish go into the twenty five pound range. Any redfish over 10 pounds can put you into the fly reel's backing. Louisiana redfish are known to tail and crawl in the shallows by the saltwater marsh shores easy to see and aggressive on the strike.

Thanks for the great day on the water. Attached are a couple of pictures of the "one that got away" from the one of the other guides on the water that day.

I had a great time! It was a bit windy and John worked his butt off poling me around finding fish. I'v attached a couple of pictures from the day. I've let my local shop know what a good time I had with you guys. Next time I'm in New Orleans I intend to give you a call....Dave 

John, Thank you very much for the redfish trip. I had a blast at casting to fish very willing to eat. I am sending you a couple of picts as requested. When I come back, I'll be sure to book with you again! Jon Yenari

Just wanted to thank you again for the days on the water. I mostly want to thank you for putting me on that first red fish. Here's a couple of photos of one of the fish we landed on the last day. I really enjoyed the whole thing from the water we fished to the wildlife we saw, you sharing your knowledge of the area and experiecne in finding fish. It was all amazing. All ready talking about coming back.


Thank you again for a great day of fishing!!! Here are some pics! Talk to you soon, keep in touch!!

John, Thanks for an awesome day. You really know how to spot redfish. I learned a lot today. It was a great day on the water. I would recommend you and uptown anglers to anyone. Thanks again. Gary

G'day John - thanks again for a great fishing trip today - I had an awesome time!

Austin and I had a great time chasing the redfish! We have fished all over, and you are one of the best guides: great company and a great fisherman. The pictures don't show that we had over 250 reds within 50 feet of the boat, in less than 2 feet of water. AND, the fish were all 8 to 16 pounds. An unbelievable experience. WE WILL BE BACK. Tom Shires

John, thanks again for putting me "in the picture"! I had a great time all three days. I'm looking forward to returning and doing it again. Thanks for your patience, and help with my casting. I'll remember "I am from Pennsylvania". Best of everything to you.

thanks for the spectacular day of fishing. I can't believe we caught 25 fish - and good ones at that. The marshes are beautiful and its a great way to spend a day on the water. You were very patient and I learned a lot during the outing. My casting (as you pointed out!) improved dramatically thanks to your coaching. The 'game contact' experience was invaluable and best of all the whole trip was just plain fun. I have a list of friends who now want to come down to New Orleans to go fishing, so hopefully we'll get to do it again soon. Stay in touch.

Here are a few of the pictures you took for me on Saturday. Had a great day.
