I love Cajun food and truly enjoy folks like Cap'n John. John is likely the most sought-after guide in those parts, and for good reason.
The experience is authentic in every regard. Food, fishing and camaraderie cannot be excelled.
Finally, Louisiana is alone in its redfish limits. All other states allow one fish/angler/day and the fish you keep must fall within the slot of 16 to 28 inches. Any fish landed that exceeds, or is under the limit length, goes back in the drink.
Louisiana, otoh, allows five fish/angler/day and one of those may exceed the 28 inch slot limit. My boy would have been crestfallen if he had to surrender that 32 pounder he caught a few years back. (Incidentally, a 28 inch fish goes about 8 or 9 pounds.)
If you're a fisherman, South LA redfishing is a must for your bucket list.
i have some fishing experience, though only as a kid. i was very lucky and got to fish for nile perch in lake victoria and baracuda off the atlantic coast of florida. my dad caught a 121 lb nile perch, i caught a 42 and 36lb one and my brother caught a 34 and 21 lb one. insane family trip to africa. i'd love to get out on the water among what seems to be a great group of guys.
so in short, i'm honored at the invite and would love to join. it depends a bit on work but please include me in the planning phase. i'm a huge lover of seafood and southern hospitality (lived in tennessee for a summer and it was bbqs and friendly chit chat over beer, which was awesome for me at 20 lol). so that trip you guys went on sounds like heaven.
i can bring an ability to juice stuff lol. here's my post roller hockey refreshing watermelon juice:
and ty again for the invite, i hope this works out b/c it sounds like just an awesome time
