I know it is still real early, but anybody given any thought as to what they are going to tie for the trip? I have been looking online and it looks like crab, shrimp and maybe some mullet patterns.

Yep. That'll do it. I got my fish on a chartreuse/white clouser, and missed a whopper on a shrimp pattern.

Good evening, Brother. I have found the simpler the fly pattern, the better for those bayou type fish. I like red/white, white/silver, chartreuse for colors, but the fish in Louisiana are not too picky.
It doesn't hurt to have something like a spoon fly or some other fly that moves water- when it's cloudy, the reds in particular use their sense of hearing and touch to pick up vibtrations in the water.
Just about the only advice I'd give is to tie on stout hooks- that is not the place for thin wire- use salt water grade hooks with some metal in them. You never know when a big one will show up.
I am starting to look forward to this trip- I will be retired by then, and time-hopefully- will not be quite as much of a problem as now. Good fishing to all- Ed Mashburn
