A friend of mine is coming in town from Pennsylvania, and he's never been to Louisiana or fished in saltwater. I am hoping to put him on some big reds or even some specs on friday, the 20th. I plan to use plastics, but i would like to know if live bait is a better option. Being a rookie boat owner, i am also lacking in knowledge as far as where to go and where to avoid. If anyone could give me suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated. I understand you wont give me your honey hole, but any advice would definitely be helpful! Thanks to anyone for a response, and happy fishing!
