Louisiana redfishing

As luck would have it, I might find myself in the New Orleans area in September near my birthday. If we're in the area, one of my gifts from my wife would be a few days of redfishing.

I've done the usual search on the internet for guide services and have several lined up that I will explore, but I would like to hear from anyone who has practical experience with guides in the area. I'm not looking for the old "I've heard good things about so-and-so".....I'd prefer actual personal experience. I value the opinions of the Forum members here, and this would be new territory for me.

Thanks in advance, and if anyone would rather PM me with info that's fine.

I regularly fish south of the new orleans area but have never used a guide. I just went and "paid my dues" I would recommend going to these sites and read the reports, that way you can get a feel for the guides in the area. www.louisianasportsman.com and www.rodandreel.com

Hope this helps...has good daily reports

If you plan to tie your own be sure to bring some spoon fly's, that seems to be the hottest fly on the market down here.

Good Luck

I went out with a guide named Greg Arnold a couple of years ago. His service is called E-Z Fly Guide Service.

He picked me up from my hotel in downtown New Orleans and I had a good long day of fishing. I caught two reds, lost one and saw plenty more including one that was enormous right under the boat. I think that I could have done better but being my first time out fishing saltwater I was pretty happy with the two I landed.

He took me out on his flats boat- we were way the hell out there- perhaps 20 miles. Nothing around just the marsh, porpoises and redfish. I really enjoyed it.

The spoon flies are popular down there but I wasn't convinced that the reds were too particular. I think crabflies will also work well. Let me know if you want more details. There is also an Orvis shop right in downtown where you can get info and flies. I picked up a clouser they call the Mardi Gras Mama there. Everyone should have at least one of those in their box.

regards

Geoff
