week had rainouts on Monday and Tuesday. Another cold front
came through again (unheard of for this time of year) and
the temperatures dropped into the mid-40's. Our customers
still enjoyed the unseasonable temperatures though and
caught lots of fish at the same time.
and Karen Sarabura from Canada fished with me on Wednesday.
On Friday I had Jane , Gerrard and Jake. Great fishing on
both days catching 50 or more fish on both days.

at the lodge and fished two days. The guys had great catches
on both days. All fish caught on gulps under a cork.

Awesome day of fishing with
the boys from Shreveport , John , Joey and Jonathan. Had a
couple of 12 lb plus reds and some beautiful trout.
When we left the dock this
morning the weather was wonderful. Around 11am though the
skies changed and it got ugly in a hurry. My guests today
were Bill and Kerry Cason from Texas and they were able to
boat a bunch of fish before the bad weather set in. We were
forced to call it a day around 11:30.
Today was Day 2 with Chip and
John. The guys had another productive day on the water and
even took advantage of my favorite ways to fish redfish...
Have you ever thought about
coming to New Orleans for vacation but don't want to stay in
the city itself?
Well that's just what our
customers today did! Our group today was picked up at our
first-class waterfront lodge just feet from their bedsides
and off they went for today's trip.
Capt. Barry and myself got
both groups on trout and redfish today. The bite was not the
greatest, but both groups were good fisherman and it made
the job a lot easier today! Summer is about here, book now
on a true New Orleans Vacation just 30 minutes from the
A Strong cold front pushed
through the area on Friday, dropping temperatures into the
40's! Its rare in Southeast Louisiana that we get weather
that cool so late. After the front pushed through we were
also forced to fish with 25+ mph winds from the North and
Northeast pushing all of the water out. It was a tough
weekend of fishing but our customers still managed to boat
alot of nice catches. We are ready for summer!

When we left
the dock this morning in 25 knot winds I did not think we
were going to catch many fish. I decided to head for the
interior marsh with the intention of fishing what I call
small water, usually that's where you will find clean water.
Our first three stops produced a few reds, drum and a couple
of nice catfish. The fourth stop was the honey hole,
probably caught fish non-stop for two hours, all reds and
black drum. I would like to thank Linda, Laura, Kevin and
Rick from Minnesota for fishing with me, hope you enjoy the
four fish we kept for lunch at Jan`s. All fish caught on
shrimp under a cork.
Christopher and Quinn with their lunch at Jan's. All fish
caught on shrimp under a cork. The kids had a ball and so
did mom and dad, thanks Peter and Valerie, the boys were
Today I had Tom and Dick who stayed at our
fishing lodge the night before. The guys fished with me
today while their wives enjoyed their day at the waterfront
lodge. The whole group had a great time and all fish were
released to fight another day.
and Mitzi here on a medical convention took a break to try
some Louisiana fishing. Today was one of the better days
that I've had in the past week. Several nice reds and 50
plus keeper trout, only keeping 10 for their lunch and my
dinner, thanks guys. All fish caught on Berkley swimming
minnows under a cork using Falcon rods and Volt reels.
Mitzi's First Fish EVER!
Stokes who is the founder of Break-Away Outdoors from
Mississippi joined me today. They provide hunting and
fishing adventures for children who normally do not have
those opportunities. Great organization and keep it going.
Cancelled on these days due to inclement weather
and his wife with a few nice reds keeping only two for
This weekend the weather was
a bit warmer but still unseasonably cool for April in
Southeast Louisiana. However, the Getty Party fished with us
and also a group of guys from Canada. The fishing was
miserable on Saturday at best but much improved today. The
guys from Canada hammered the trout this morning. If we
could finally move out of jacket weather and into shorts
weather the fish are ready to turn on fire. Thanks to
everyone that fished with us this week. Please come back and
see us soon!
Today we had 3 boats out
fishing on this very cold and windy day. The Meyers party
from New Jersey worked very hard for their catch and also
Danny and his Mom caught several nice redfish. Jamie, Eric
and Mary also fished hard today and finished with a mess of
trout and several nice redfish. All fish were caught on
Falcon Rods and Reels. Lets hope the warmer weather this
weekend helps the fishing out.
The weather has been pretty
bad the last couple of days forcing the cancellation of 5
fishing trips. However, after the rain passed yesterday we
were able to get in a private swamp tour in the afternoon
Mitchell family. Madison with
her 4 ft gator, you go girl!
