Eleven Experience’s 61’ Hatteras mothership called the Outpost is a beautifully restored vessel that places fly anglers squarely on some of the most productive flats in the world for large bull redfish. The yacht hosts groups of four anglers (two per skiff) and features four private, comfortable and well-appointed staterooms. Anchored in the heart of the Louisiana marsh, guests on the Outpost have immediate access to fantastic opportunities for large bull redfish, black drum and sheeps head.
The southern Louisiana swamp is a beautiful and simple landscape of grassy marshlands, interspersed with a maze of channels, flats and islands. Its prized inhabitants are bull redfish that show up in the winter months and have the potential for some fish to push 40 pounds. These fish highly aggressive and most shots at fish occur quite close to the boat which can provide for a real thrill.
This is a fantastic trip for those looking for a winter escape that is still close to home. While the sometimes cold temperatures can make angling a challenge, redfish are a cold water species and as long as they see your fly, they will eat it. There may not be a better close-to-home option for winter flats fishing than chasing these big bull reds. Additionally, guests arrive and depart through New Orleans which can make for a fun addition to your trip.
