An ex-motorcycle racer, welder, professional bass fisherman, and Louisiana mosquito control director, Taylor has, for the past 14 years, been one of the best redfish guides in the business. Almost all of his guiding is done in the Louisiana marsh, 650 pristine miles of islands, bayous, bays, and tidal flats, located miles offshore from Rigolet's Marina and Bait Shop, which was where we met up early on another calm, sunny morning. Good as it is, Taylor's fishery presents him with a dilemma: To fish the marsh properly he needs a shallow-draft flats skiff, but to run the 32 miles of open water out there and back each day over Lake Borgne, which can get pretty rough, he needs something safer and more comfortable. His most recent solution to that problem is a 31-foot, 210-horsepower diesel-engine boat called the Mr. Champ, which he has customized to piggyback his 18-foot skiff on a cradle above the deck. He can also tow a second skiff, as he did with Jimbo's.
