As mentioned earlier, it's too early for Elmer's to 'turn on'. That shoreline beach bite is my bag and historically the earliest it'll get hot is by Jazz Fest, another 5 weeks out provided the river levels etc. fall again and don't take a large rise beforehand. When it does crack open I will be in that number, until then, ARRIVE ALIVE!!!
I know it'll be slim pickins but we'll be camping on the island chasing reds by night and trout at first light. Just fishing plastics or did you test out the top water action? I must throw a topwater at sunrise!
