Anyone been down? Headed out tomorrow night for 4 days. Looks like South winds to 30mph, typical, and then North winds to 20mph. Karma, prayers, tips, Ill take it all.

When the weather really sucks, dirty water on the west shoreline with rubber on the bottom is a pretty good bet for reds. Or, at least it used to when I went down there regularly more than a decade ago.

No report to add but wish you good luck on the fishing. First year in a long while I won't be going this weekend for the Todos Locos valley tournament. Passing up going with it historically being a 30 plus mph wind. Don't know why, but this weekend rips every year.

I like your confidence.. I'm on the reds there, several big schools, so if you don't find'em shoot me a pm. Need to be able to get skinny. Well, I guess I'll post a report when I get back or from there as we go. Purple Rain Rain Purple Rain

Dang it Ranch stop with the Purple Rain thing.

That's a secret you know.

Abcdj let us know but you're a long way from saltwater if you're in Paris.
