I’m addicted–hopelessly in love with New Orleans. The fishery, food and all the people that come along with it. In what seems to have tuned into a bit of a tradition, Deeter and I spent the better part of the last week shacked up with our friend and guide extraordinaire Gregg Arnold. We ran around the marsh from Venice to Hopedale with a cadre of Florida guides and friends who often winter in the marsh like Brian “Bear” Holeman, Brian Esposito and Jason Rucker.

The weather made things a bit difficult, but as usual the guides got us on fish and most importantly we had a hell of a time doing it. If you’ve never seen the city or the fishery I highly recommend you put it on your list. You won’t be disapointed. Enjoy the pics.
