Fishhunter Guide Service Inc. is owned and operated by the father/son duo of Nash Roberts III & IV. Both are college degreed biologists and full time fishing guides. Fishunter is based near Port Sulphur, Louisiana about 50 minutes southeast of New Orleans, and in the heart of the best redfishing in the United States. We operate from our private fishing camp, surrounded by a pristine, shallow water coastal marsh that extends as far as the eye can see.
Shallow water redfishing is our specialty. We generally fish in water less than 2 feet in depth and employ bass fishing "techniques," i.e. casting spoons, spinners, jigs and top water baits to the edges of marsh islands and over oyster reefs. Redfish are the top of the food chain in the marsh; they eat most everything and nothing eats them. This leads to an aggressive behavior that results in rod jarring strikes and explosive action! Prime time to fish reds is August through March. Moderate winter time temperatures in the marsh make for a pleasant escape from the sometimes bitter cold over much of the nation during the best redfishing period. Redfish average 4 to 8lbs during this period, however trophy "bull" reds (25-40lbs) are targeted in March and September.
