I had the pleasure of fishing for redfish in the Louisiana marshes with Chef Scott Boswell, my son Andrew and our guide Captain Corey. My understanding is that linefishing is the only legal way to get redfish and that they are not available for commercial use. The limit per day is five per person. We went out bright and early on a spectacularly beautiful day. We used shrimp as bait followed by trolling with spinners. The latter was the more successful approach. Chef Boswell caught the most. We finished before we might have as we had to get my son back to a class at Tulane. The morning spent fishing was a blast!
