Sunday I had the delight of looking at another hazy Grand Isle sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico. For the past 40 years, I have seen many of these stunning mornings while either photographing, scuba diving or fishing on the coast of Louisiana. The humid air makes the haze. Then a thundercloud partially hides the sunrise, thus making this special time of day even more picturesque.
Sunrise South of Grand Isle
Just about the time it was full daylight, Jim Roland gets a strike on light weight 10 pound test line while fishing a voodoo shrimp. He quickly realized it was going to be a fight, which was confirmed 45 minutes later. That's when Macon Roland used the net to help him pull the 29-pound bull red into the boat. That’s a redfish. Jimbo posed while he grinned widely then Jacob Roland gently placed the fish back in the Gulf to breed again. A day well spent in Louisiana’s prolific coastal waters.
