I’ll have my deposit to you the first week of January, or at the next board meeting.
This is a great trip with a great captain and friend of TFF. DMJ charters has donated trips in the past. I went last August and caught trout, reds and ladyfish using a 7 wt. Had 2 monsters break off.
The chandelier islands are a great place to flyfish. This was my 3rd trip. My largest red came from the surf.
The trip is a bargain: 3 night lodging, meals and a skiff to fish from, wade, drift and surf fishing is available. Wade fishing is in clear water with hard bottom.
I’ve used 7 – 10 wts. Flounder, jack crevalle and sharks are also possible. On trips, most will have at least 1 break off on some unidentifiable sea monster. Some are landed. Ray had 2 reds over 40” on an 8 wt on 1 trip I went on.
If your sceered by the thought of monster fish, remember we will be fishing in LA and their trout minimum size is like 6” long and you can fish for dink’s.
If you have questions, I can help.
See ya’ll in the Chandeluer’s.
Scott and John – thanks for setting this up. The Chandeleur Islands have been on my trip list for many years.
I see that one spot came open. Contact John or Scott.
