As far as I'm concerned there's two reasons to visit New Orleans. Number one is pictured above. Seriously. Beignets, or hot french doughnuts served with chicory coffee. They are something I dream about on a regular basis as well as the rest of the food served around town. It's simply amazing.
Number two is pictured below. After ending my Mississippi adventure (www.bigmuddyroadtrip.com) in the Big Easy gunning for redfish I decided there's no place in America that I'd rather spend the weekend fishing.
Not if, but WHEN you hit up New Orleans for some of the best sight fishing and food this country has to offer make sure you give Alec Griffin at the Uptown Angler a call. The shop is located right down town and I guarantee the southern gentleman in him will go above and beyond to answer any questions you might have as well set you straight on accommodations, guides, gear, flies etc... I know he did with us. Thanks again Alex for an unforgettable couple of days.
