Big, Easy Louisiana Redfish
July 17, 2013
If you can beat the heat and humidity, the summer months are a great time to target redfish in New Orleans. Sure, you can catch redfish everywhere from Virginia to Texas, but few ports offer the history, charm, culture and class of the Big Easy. And where else can you get a beer "to go?"
Louisiana guide Gregg Arnold has been luring huge Louisiana redfish out of the skinny waters of the bayou for decades, and while the "greatest guide," argument in any region will never be settled, leaving him out of the conversation when talking about New Orleans would be a mistake. We grabbed Gregg and talked summer redfish, guiding in an increasingly pressured area, recipes, restaurants and an increasingly fragile resource.
