It's a good idea to obtain the services of a guide before striking out on your own in the Delta. There are plenty of outfitters in the area. Bryan Dickenson operates Dixie Riverside Charters out of Buras. Dickenson guides clients who fish from a 23-foot bay boat. Reds will average two to eight pounds, and there's always a chance of tying into a bull red that will weigh up to 45 pounds. Other fish such as speckled trout are likely to be encountered, too.
