Louisiana 2017

Even though it has nearly been a month since we all returned home from the Louisiana marsh, I am still thinking about casting to those copper backed bull reds. The countdown to next years trip has already begun!

We averaged at least one fish over 20 pounds each day for the group, will a bunch of 10-18 pound fish boated as well. Not bad for a bunch of trout weenies from Arkansas equipped with jet powered river sleds and iPhones for navigation. 

I'll let the photos do the talking!

No wake zones are a perfect place to exchange a couple lies and beers.

Hope you enjoyed the montage of photos! I'll get back to the regularly schedule programming of trout and the ozarks very soon!
