Louisiana Coast - January 6, 2011
Let me start by saying that the Louisiana marsh was on fire with fish! Saw plenty of pigs in the 20-30 pound range, but they were rather spooky. Conditions were kind of tough the first few days with the wind and clouds, but it cleared out and the fishing was great the last two days. Each day we caught between 15-25 fish. The real kicker was that we only caught one fish under ten pounds. Even though I've never been bonefishing, the redfishing down there would probably be the complete opposite. It took me a while to figure out how to make an eight-foot cast with a nine-foot rod—these fish were right in front of us! We had several fish explode on surface flies, but most of them were caught a little deeper with bigger shrimp patterns tied on 1/0 hooks. Brock Thanks for the pics and the report, Brock! Awesome trip!
