But the first thing we did when we arrived in town? Visit my friend Tiffany at Gruene Outfitters. Tiffany Fluitt owns and operates Gruene Outfitters which offers all the [...]

Red Rover, Red Rover

After three autumn trips to Mississippi which yielded one small redfish, we decided to cure the winter fishing blues by roving over to Louisiana to look for big reds. We planned two trips in January, one of which was a couple of weeks ago. I geared up and flew to Mobile where the Professor and [...]
