The reason that Lefty and I decided to not fish the LA Marsh this coming January was because the guide Lefty has always used said don't come in January; because the weather and the fishing has been more unpredictable in recent years than ever before. He was adamant about it.
I think taking the guide's advice and switching our venue was a good idea based on both the guide's advice and your report. I know any fishing trip is a crap shoot but I've always insisted on going during "prime time" and never on the off, "but it could be great", season. I've been lucky because of doing that; and I can't recall a single time I hit it totally wrong in decades of angling travel.
Sorry about your dismal trip; but thanks for your thoughtful report and trip tips and not a rambling rant.
