Go Fish New Orleans


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.

Thanks, Noble Mon.
We so need cool posts like this.
Right now the city seems to be taking hits again from bad people who are comparing flood disaster reactions if you get my drift. Pretty mean again.

The positive bounce in your description really set my day off right.
As you will notice from this Ladder's coverage, however, we are way into the floods upstream with everything we've got left.
Needless to sayI hung you onto today's Ladda.

Thanks again,

Thanks for the comment. I know so much still needs to be done down there and I for one, try to do all i can. You live in a amazing city that everyone should visit at least once in their lives. Thanks for the shout out again and let me know if you'd like to link.


I had just booked my flight this morning before reading this! So may great stories we're headed down there third week in July.

I also booked my return trip with Capt. Gregg Arnold a few days ago. I have fallen in love with this fishing and enjoy it about as much as anything I have done in a very long time. Also great mention on Alec from you Tim. He is a class guy and I would recommend everyone go to his store and spend money.
This fishing, incidently, is a great first trip for someone wanting to get into saltwater fly fishing. The fish aren't as spooky as bonefish and you can hit them on the head with the fly. Call Alec and he can put you with someone who will get you on HUGE Reds. My largest was 40 inches and that doesn't get a second look!!!

I will add New Orleans to my list of places to fish in the US. Though my inter-continental list might have some priorities over the US locations. :p

New Orleans IS indeed a great food town! Beignets for breakfast and catching redfish in the afternoon...doesn't get any better than that. Everybody does need to visit!
