Mmm I have no idea. Our inshore redfish can be from 1-15 lb pounds commonly, and pull quite hard. Trout 1-4 lbs usually can get up to trophy size 8+. Spanish and blues are a blast if you take a boat trip, 1-3 lbs usually and make good fast runs. Maybe that helps.First of all let me say thanks for all the helpful information. As a soon to be new resident from the North I'll say your information is priceless.
Now let me toss a question out as I continue to sift thru my tackle that I will be downsizing before we move to Conway.
I am a dabbling Saltwater fly fisherman, and figure my fly fishing in the MB area will be from shores of tidal rivers and such.
That said is a 9WT overkill for the local species that I might catch in this area or is an 8WT adequate?
Great site for weather and water conditions at Apache Pier - since Springmaid's station is down:
