East Cut Redfish Popper
January and February is redfish time in the many sheltered potholes and ponds of the Biloxi, Mississippi, marsh. The water is air-clear. The redfish run from average, 4 to 7 pounds, to big, 12 to 15 pounds. It's all sight fishing from small kayaks, canoes and flats skiffs, and the fish go crazy for popping bugs, according to Wesley Parks, avid fly rodder and manager of McCoy Outdoors Fly Shop (334-432-3006) in nearby Mobile.
