Fished sat. with Capt. Brian Carter about 40min. south of New orleans.Capt. Brian poled his Hells Bay boat while I was perched on a casting platform.The reds were plentiful but not hitting well and spooky.I was unprepared for close range,fast shooting pin point casting that was nec.Water was dirty and the sky partly cloudy made for difficult sight fishing. Fish would often appear within 30ft.cruising towards us and would spook or disappear,most opportunities were between 30 and 10ft.Tailing fish we saw in the distance were only active for a for a short time and would dissappere.And when I did hit the mark most of the time there was no responce,Capt.Brian said when they are in this mood you have to put it right in front of there nose to get a reflex strike.8hrs. in the heat.took its toll and I had to sit down.I picked up a light spinner and caught a couple of 24in.reds and a largemouth bass.But I can"t wait to go back because it was one of the most exciting trips I ever been on even though I didn"t catch with a fly rod,but I came close next time I"ll get them.
