Good luck to you. I hope the temps go up and the wind settles down.
FYI - the flies that I caught the big bones on were tan and white #4 clousers that I tied. I experimented with some darker and larger flies and had no problems.
I'm now a believer in presentation, presentation, presentation more than color or size.
BTW - the celeb named C Lo Green has been renting a house near Tippy's. He's had dinner there a few times, was at the fish fry and used the chef from Pascals. He might be filming a music video.
