Default Louisiana Redfish!

Jim (keep) and I booked a fishing trip a month or so ago with Paradise Plus out of Buras La. after getting a recommendation from Chance Love. We ended up fishing this past week but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate very well. We had 20 mph winds day one day and 5" of rain another.

The weather conditions and muddy water made it tough but Paradise Plus was still able to get us on some fish and we ended up bringing back a cooler with 2, 2 day limits of Reds. I can't say enough about the people and accomodations...unbelievable food cooked by a chef at the lodge and hard working fishing guides determined to get you on fish. We had a great time and intend to go back again...soon!

Ain't nothing wrong with that!!! Weather has been crazy at home. I could not cut the grass for dad and mom while I was there, just soggy!

I heard y'all had really tough conditions for a couple days, but came on strong at the end. And y'all sure did! We will be there in a month or so.
