Booked the last Friday/Saturday available for Feb 14, 15th. Valentines weekend. Wife said go as we don't do anything special. Ouch! Going with my conventional tackle buddy that could not make the Venice trip.

More pics. The last one is the open gulf. We went to the edge and Bear was on casting platform and saw some bulls but casting into the strong wind just killed casting. The NE wind was wrong for the area but gives you an idea about sighting bull reds as in 40 inch fish.

Bear and I had good trip to Venice, La. We caught reds on fly and baitcasters. Will post more later. Here are a few pics.  The drain was like fishing in a bucket. The reds just kept milling around in front of the drain.

Purcell made a quick cast on a laid up redfish that made a turn around to take the fly. Only one we put in the boat fishing Greens Lake marsh.

Geared up my Ride 115 using the track system. Added rudder, pole for poling and anchoring, fly rod holder on track, and Ram ball on track system for GPS. all from a visit to ACK on Bissonett. Talked to Brock about the club and wants to join.

This was Saturday 10-6-13. Surf did not lay with 5mph winds. More like 10-15mph. We did not stay long in surf. We went over to bay side near the pass. Tide still very high with tide on beach also very high. Caught nada. Saw one big red taken from surf.
