Default April Louisiana Trip

In April, I headed out for a day on the water with my friend Captain Marty at Marsh Madness.
The black drum were out in good numbers and willing to take a fly, good fun on a 7 WT.
The redfish were a little tougher to come by, caught a couple smaller reds that went into the cooler.

I was there in May and only saw 2 redfish.

Caught a bunch of Specs though.

I was visiting a friend that is a diehard gear chucker. Him and his friends had never even seen someone use a fly rod for saltwater fish. They were shocked when after a bit of time figuring out what the Specs wanted I started catching just as much as they were.

Thanks!

As soon as I hooked up my buddy sat down and started fixing himself a sandwich. I knew it was going to be a bit of a fight.
