Thankfully we made the decision to leave a day early because it was really the only nice day we got. The water was super low from the hard north wind that had blown for a few days, but we managed to catch them pretty good on Thursday. <o:p></o:p><P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"><o:p></o:p><P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">From then on it was downhill considering we were redfishing in LA. The wind started blowing harder and the rain showers came with it. We got out there and fought the conditions Friday and Saturday and managed to catchsomeeach day, but Sunday we decided to pack up and make a stop in Biloxi! <o:p></o:p><P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"><o:p></o:p><P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">We did use the new American Rodsmiths Winn Grip Rods for the first time that we will begin stocking in the coming weeks, they are awesome! <P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal><P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">

we were in the Delacroix/Hopedale areas of La, it is about 30 miles southeast of the French quarter.

as for wading, i woildnt think it would be too successful. on average we caught those redfish 30-40 miles from the boat ramp.

my recomendation, go down there, higher a guide and catch some fish. even with GPS and maps, it is still easy to get lost out there. depending on winds, the water can change 5-7 feet, and ponds that were dry enough to play tennis on will be filled up and holding redfish the next day.

Hopedale and Venice are not that far from each other by the way the Pelican flies, but is by the roads you have to take. Look at google earth, or map quest.
