Epic week here in hopedale with The Big Outdoors Charters! We finally had a week with incredible weather and the fished loved it!! Very hot temperatures in the upper 90's all week but the fishing was fast and furious so we beat the heat everyday!! Some of the river water from the Mississippi River has started to be overtaken by the saltwater, which has allowed the brown shrimp to move into our outer bays and the trout have finally started to show up in big numbers. They trout are not easy to find being that they are moving so fast everyday with very little pattern to stay on a steady bite, but with our hard working and determined guides we are finding they pretty steady.
In the flip side the redfishing has been incredible! We are still on track to have one of our best redfish seasons ever. They are not big by any means but the perfect 16-19" fish for grilling or frying!
The fishing in general is getting better everyday, from a somewhat slow start to our standards, I see the next few months getting back to some serious fish catching!! If you would like to come down and experience sportsman's paradise with one of the top guide services on the east side of the MS river give us a call and let us make memories of a lifetime!!!
