Do you need to “Check the Box” on a 40-inch bull redfish?

If yes, we have the trip for you! The little fishing village of Cocodrie is one hour southwest of the Big Easy. Cocodrie provides as authentic a South Louisiana experience as you can get. Your accommodations are a rustic, but fully-featured fishing lodge. Anglers will be treated to a daily Cajun food bonanza! Backwoods Adventures partners with some of the top young guides on the Gulf Coast, including Jeremy Chavez and Ben Paschal. Each winter, the bull redfish are up in the skinny water of the marsh. February conditions can be ideal for site casting to huge redfish. Visit the Land of the Giants with Backwoods Adventures!

The fall and winter months are the best time of year to target trophy size fish. Shots at fish in the 20-30lb range are common with possibilities of fish pushing into the 40lb class. The Louisiana marsh is a short drive from cuisine and nightlife of downtown New Orleans. All things considered, the Louisiana marsh is unquestionably the best redfish fishery on the planet.
