Louisiana, Goggle eye
In Louisiana, we camped at Gulf Islands National Seashore in Ocean Springs MS. I went fishing off of one of the fishing piers in Ocean Springs and caught a fish on a shrimp pattern. I believe it is a goggle eye as identified by a fisher woman on the dock. She told me to use it as bait. I threw it back.
Fishing flies in salt water is a totally different game and I will need to study and maybe take some lessons or get a guide if I want to be successful.
I also caught brim in Louisiana at Indian Creek Reservoir. Cindy out fished me using worms.
