Redfish Resolutions - by Mark Zona
It's the start of a new year, and time for all those resolutions everyone seems so keen on after the holidays. Time to cut out salt, sugar and carbs from everything we eat and live on celery and carrots, right? Why is it these resolutions always have to be so healthy, anyway? I was actually considering cutting back on my Red Bull habit the other day when I suddenly remembered I had already made my New Year's resolution for 2008: I made it during the first week of December, while battling a 30-pound redfish I sight-fished off the bottom of a bayou in Venice, La.

Red Light District, by Bob Marshal
It was the fourth huge red snapper in the last 30 minutes, a bright crimson fish pushing 15 pounds, and it was flopping about the deck of the charter boat Teaser with foot-crushing energy, the kind of energy that had almost trashed the light baitcasting reel - and the two hands I'd used to grip it. Skipper Mike Frenette put an end to the snapper's antics with a hit from the aluminum belaying pin that would have done Barry Bonds proud.
Cajun Trolling, by Bob McNally - Monday, January 01, 2007
Cajun Trolling, by Bob McNally
In South Louisiana, in the fish-filled Gulf of Mexico off the mouth of the Mississippi River, anglers have some of the best fishing available in North America for wahoo, tuna and dolphin. But unlike other regions of the country, Cajun fishermen almost exclusively use deep-running artificial lures for blue-water trolling.

In most other regions, anglers after these species typically use soft-plastic, high-speed trolling lures that run at or near the surface. Some fishermen also use trolled and rigged dead baits for these species. And a few 'hoo, tuna and dolphin anglers use trolled live baits.

But Cajuns are different, yet remarkably successful. In fact, they're so good at deep trolling that anglers everywhere should at least try Louisiana tactics to possibly improve their blue-water gamefish catches near home.
