re: Bayous to explore in S. Louisiana - bluemoons on 7/9/17 at 9:07 pm
There are so many awesome places it's difficult to narrow it down. They're all different. Bayou Lacombe is pretty cool because you can transition from hardwood swamp to marsh, and most of the other bayous in and out of Honey Island are worth checking out. Everything surrounding the Basin is pretty a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - bluemoons on 7/6/17 at 11:49 am
Just keep the rod tip pointed at the fish. In the water is fine too. Focus on stripping to set. To practice, when you're stripping and the fish is following, just tell yourself to stripset over and over. Like I said earlier, I don't see strip setting as imperative for slot redfishing, but if you...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

If they're short striking, once they start following, start baby stripping pretty quickly. Like 2-3" strips....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - bluemoons on 7/6/17 at 10:08 am
If your rod has enough backbone, failing to stripset shouldn't cost you slot redfish. If you want to learn, concentrate on keeping the rod tip in the water when you're stripping. When the fish eats, take your time, grab the line, and pull. It'll become natural after a while. Unrelated, but I'm ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Is a 17x52 sc underpowered with a 50hp? - bluemoons on 6/28/17 at 3:41 pm
I have a Yamaha F60 tiller on a 1848. To me, it's the perfect motor for that boat. I cruise close to 40 solo (faster than I really want to go), and 36ish with three guys, two dogs, dekes, and gear. I doubt I'd be happy with a 50. I subscribe to the belief that you should always buy the most moto...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Fly Fishing trip to The Bahamas, recs needed. - bluemoons on 6/28/17 at 10:33 am
[quote]I always recommend Andros. Stay at Small Hope Bay Lodge and book Glaister in advance. He is the best guide you will find. He has an incredible clientele and is one of the hardest working and genuinely nice person I've ever met. Eleuthera is my second choice. I usually use a guide on Andro...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: OB's thoughts on blazer bays with rolled gunnels? - bluemoons on 6/27/17 at 4:23 pm
They're fine boats. I've had two in my lifetime and both were dry riding, open water worthy boats. Most rolled gunnel boats have splatter deck in the cockpit. Very easy to clean and hard to chip. They can ride a little bit rougher due to the weight, but every manufacturer is different. I would h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Sweetwater vs Tito's Tournament Drama - bluemoons on 6/24/17 at 11:54 pm
[quote]JAB528[/quote] I'd venture to say I sight fish redfish more than most people on this board, but redfishing on a day with water 2'+ high, clouds, and thunderstorms is not easy. Weather conditions at the house rarely translate to weather conditions on the water. In St. Bernard (where this to...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Sweetwater is currently still under water (as of this morning), so you may want to call before you go. They moved the Titos tournament from Sweetwater to Breton Sound. The water is going to be really high Saturday, but should drop through Sunday. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
