Fly Fishing in Louisiana has never been better than with Southern Fly Expeditions out of New Orleans. Join Captain Brandon Keck for a day on the water and set out in search of Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle and more in the inshore marshes of Southeastern Louisiana.
Redfish - also called Red Drum - also known as channel bass, redfish, spottail bass, or reds, is a fish found in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The Redfish is related to the black drum. They thrive in the Southeastern Louisiana inshore waters.
Redfish are a dark red color on the back, which fades into white on the belly. The redfish also has a signature black spot or eyespot near the tail that makes the fish identifiable. Redfish and Black Drum get their name from the Red drum croaking or drumming sound when distressed.
The most distinguishing mark on the red drum is one large black spot on the upper part of the tail base. Having multiple spots is not uncommon for this fish, but having no spots is extremely rare. This is thought to be because the black spot near their tail can confuse predators into believing that their head is actually located at their tail end, allowing the fish time to escape. In the summer and fall adult redfish feed on crabs, mullet and shrimp - while in the spring and winter months they feed on other fish like pinfish, lizard fish and more.
