I am trying to get into saltwater fly fishing for trout and reds. I am looking for thoughts on rods, reels, line, flies, and anything else I need to get started. I don't want to break the bank for everything.
I was given a reel, but have no idea if it is any good. It is a Hobbs Creek Fly Reel (HC III Reel). Don't know anything about the line on it, other than it was....

Some people go to movies, others play video games, but really if you want entertainment just go fishing on a Saturday. I could've sat on anchor with some popcorn today and got to see what the world is made of. Good people and ignorant people. Fortunately Justin Freeman, his wife, her friend Melanie and her son didn't have anyone rain on their parade. All the damage was away from us and to....
Need some help with recipes for Garfish. Shot a big one the other night bow fishing measuring right at 6'. The filets from that fish looked like backs traps from an elk. Let me know how you like to cook it. Fried? Grilled? Garfish balls? Garfish Tacos? Any ideas will help, this will be my first time cooking some. Thanks!
I plan on taking my girlfriend and my 12 year old step daughter fishing tomorrow. We live in baton rouge and I was thinking of taking them to the Fouchon/ Grand Isle area. Im not familiar with the area as I am from southwest Louisiana (Lafayette/lake Charles). We don't have a boat and would be looking for a few decent spots to fish from land.
Are there any decent places in Golden....
Went to G.I. Friday afternoon for a lil fun. Started at Elemers isle but seen a few trucks stuck in the sand so did not try in a suv. Went down to the park put out my trot line armed with chicken legs and necks. Seem like quite a few crabs but small(gumbo size ) and bunches of buster crabs. No crabs over 5 inches
Had a good time flipping grass, it was hot so it was a half day trip. The bass were more on the leaner side, but still full of fight. Boated only five with two over 3lbs, and one 4lbs 7oz. No bass were harmed in the making of this video, ALL BASS were released to fight another day.
During the week it's easy for me to launch the boat and make a short run from Laurel Ridge launch down to Petit Amite, the locks, diversion, or blind river to do some bass fishing. I may catch a small one here or there beating the banks with plastics.
Does anyone have some advice on techniques that work well that I should be doing to catch some more fish. Or certain areas, structure, or....
I FINALLY got a 35 whelen barrel for my pro hunter. It's the 28 inch stainless fluted model. I'm wondering if anyone has this same model and ammo they find is the most accurate? I'm leaning toward the 180 gr fusions, as I've had good luck with them in my 270.
Unlike the weather predictions it was really windy this morning throwing a monkey wrench into the game and making fishing a little harder than expected here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Lots of anglers still headed out to Black Bay looking to catch some Specs and some had great success. We also had plenty of 1/2 limits reports, but some folks struggled only catching 5 or 10....
