Re: Lafitte Redfish
I live in WY so I know what your talking about when it comes to wind and like you say on the marshes, in a lot of places where I fish there is no getting out of it, I just try to reposition so I'm not casting directly into a head wind, but when it really blows there is nothing you can do but wait it out. It will usually settle down after 30 minutes or so. I don't own a skiff, I have a drift boat, it wouldn't be suitable for your type of fishing. I know nothing about red fishing other than I want to give it a try. When I go to new areas I always try to get a guide to help my learning curve, and usually it pays big dividends.
Keep us posted on how your next trip goes!
