Jason Purcell and the
crazy bachelor party. These guys just about had to beg me to take them
out in the rain Saturday. They just wouldn't take no for an answer. We
left in the rain, fished in the rain and came back in the rain. Over 25
reds for their effort, all caught on spinner baits.
September 27-28, 2012
Thursday was day two with Tony and Marilyn
Mills. The bite was slow in most of the areas that we fished but they
ended the day with six nice reds and eleven trout.
Friday, Dr. Carl Steinkamp ,his brother Dale and Dr. Tom from Baton
Rouge joined me on their yearly LSU-Florida fishing trip. Most of their
trips have been very productive and today didn't disappoint. Bait wasn't
an issue because they just about bit on anything.

After spending a couple days in MS at the
farm preparing for the 2012 Deer Season, I was back on the water today
with Tony and his
wife Marilyn from Brandon, MS. Tony and his son fished with me last week
and he decided to give it another go this time with his wife.
The fishing not as fast
and furious as last week but we still managed to put a good mess in the
boat. Trout, reds and a couple of flounder. Marilyn boated two fish over
14 lbs, and both released to fight another day. All fish caught on gulps
under a cork. Out with them again in the morning.

Day two with Tony Mills
and his son Justin from Brandon, Ms. Just about a repeat of day one
except for one flounder and a few trout. Most fish caught on gulps under
a cork and only a few on black/chart spinnerbaits. All fish were caught
on Falcon Coastal Rods and Volt 2500 Reels.
September 21, 2012
Day one with Tony Mills
and his son Justin. Started off the morning with a 5lb plus bass and it
was all redfish after that. Kept a limit off small ones and released all
the big boys to fight another day. All fish caught on spinner baits
black/chart. A big thanks goes out to wildlife and fisheries for
catching three fisherman today with 62 reds, 47 over the limit.

Saturday trip with the
John Gelespi party. Just like the last few mornings it started out slow,
but once the bite started it was redfish after redfish. All fish caught
on shrimp under a cork, keeping only four for the group for lunch. The
fishing remain fabulous in Lafitte, LA! Call us now to book your
adventure of a lifetime! Let's go Fishing!

seeing you guys again on the water soon.

Today was another great
day of redfishing. On the boat with me was the Doug Schroeder part.
Suzanna caught her first redfish and Natalie, who is 6 months pregnant,
put the hurt on those redfish. Also, Adam wore them out as well. . All
fish caught on shrimp under a cork tighlining. All fish were put in the
boat using Falcon Coastal Rods and Volt 2500 fishing reels.
Also, today, Capt. Mike had a party of 4. The fishing was just as
fierce for these guys! They caught a ton of fish and had a great time!

Great to be back on the
water. Capt. Barry had the Steve Gentemann
party and I had Russ Bruce and his friend Tom for day one. They will be
fishing with me again on Friday. You could not have asked for a better
morning, over 60 reds between both boats. All fish caught on gulps and
shrimp on the bottom.
September 2nd - 5th, 2012
Sometimes we don't always go fishing just
for fish. Captain Barry and Captain Jason have been on an extended GATOR
fishing trip for the last several days trying to fill their allotted
tags. The tandem has worked hard and as of today, they are just a few
shy of filling all of their tags. Below are a few pictures of some of
August 23-Sept. 3rd, 2012
Now that I have internet
service and power back on, I can post the trips just before Hurricane
Isaac came through.
We had the Jeff Burns
party, Kathy George party, Joey Fontenot party and the Mark Hall party.
All fish caught on spoons and spinner baits, but the hot bait just
before the storm was the Berkley natural gulp under a cork.
Every charter that I had
booked thru September 15th has cancelled.
Fishing should be
good in a few days so hopefully we will get some calls and get back to
