What do you do when you’re fishing a marsh during a strong outgoing tide and you run out of water? You have two choices: find water or go home. While the thought of enjoying the comforts of your home with a cold brew in hand might be enticing, you’re a redfish junky. The visualization of a redfish feeding frenzy in inches of water fuels your insanity and convinces you to drag an unknown distance through bottomless sludge hoping to find a pool within the marsh still holding water. The outcome of your decision may result in a mucky mess and utter exhaustion, but…

Occasionally it pays to get dirty.
