My buddy and I are planning on chasing reds in LA end of January (after duck season). We are looking to do a weekend type of trip, with our base being near New Orleans. Do you all have any suggestions for good guides down that way? WE want to do fly fishing and light tackle.

Thanks!

Fished with Brandon and Brent Ballay out of Venice (Fishing in Venice Louisiana, Inshore and Offshore Charter Services, Marketing for Venice Louisiana) last January. We hunted in the morning and fished for 3-4 hours each acfternoon. Caught about 350-450 redfish in 2 days. The last day we fished an approx. 45 yards stretch of marsh along one point for about 3 hours. Four guys caught more than 150 reds without moving the boat. Went 19 casts in a row with a redfish before missing two hits on the 21st cast. Fish were caught on plastic (cocahoes or Gulp shrimp) and dead shrimp under a popping cork. Fish averaged 20-28", with probably 15 over the 3 days over 32".
