Today Capt. Barry had Reid
(10), Landen (12), Kyle (13), their dad Randy and mom
Kelly from Virginia. They wanted to catch some fish and
see a few gators after. Well after one stop the three
brothers were slinging trout in the boat for 2 hours
straight. We kept some to take home for a few meals then
fished for a couple of reds and they each caught a
keeper red. Then it was off to see the gators. Took a
few pictures of some gators and a bald eagle in the tree
and called it a day. It was a good Easter to see 3 young
kids that really know how to fish. Thanks for fishing
with us and bring the kids back.
Also today Capt. Dave had the
party who also finished with a limit of trout and a few
Today I had
the pleasure of fishing with Vera and Monty Thrower from
LaPlace, LA. It was a quick limit of decent sized trout and
a couple nice redfish. All fish caught on Berkeley swimming
shads and spinner baits on Flacon Coastal Rods and Falcon
Volt 2500 spinning reels.
Today I had
the pleasure to fish with the O'Dea family from Cleveland.
Very tough fishing conditions, but they did manage to catch
a mess of fish. All released to fight another day.
Day two with
Larry , Bob and Chuck. Chuck was the redfish slayer today.
Not a bad catch considering they all fished in 25 knot
winds. All fish caught on spinner baits.
Today was the first of 2 days of fishing
for Larry Bob and Chuck. Windy conditions made it difficult
but the guys pulled off a great catch. Good Luck tomorrow!
Also today, Captain Dave had
the Allen party. Similar story for the group, they worked
hard in tough conditions but managed a nice mess of fish.
Today I had
the pleasure of fishing with Alex Waller and his parents.
Alex was in search his very first redfish. Alex fished hard
today as the weather would not cooperate but in the end his
hard work paid off and Alex landed his first redfish. Be
sure to come back and try again soon and one day you'll be
in the boat to catch the mother lode!
Today was a day full of
smiling children and BIG
redfish! We would like to thank the Herrington party
visiting from London; Liam and his dad Kyle from Oklahoma;
Terry, Ryan, Bob who had a 30lb Bull Redfish, and an
afternoon trip with David Cordes and his son Billy. All
boats caught plenty of fish and it was really great to see
all the smiles from the kids! All of the fish were caught
using Falcon Rods and Falcon Volts reels. Hopefully with the
first day of Spring upon us, this is a start of an AWESOME
fishing season! Book your trip today and plan to stay awhile
in our first class waterfront accommodations.
Today, Capt Mike and his party enjoyed a
great day of fishing on a beautiful weather day in Southeast
Louisiana. They finished the day with a nice mess of
redfish which they caught in the clear shallow water ponds
using spinner baits on Falcon Rods and Falcon Volt Reels.
The weather is gaining some consistency and the fishing has
been very much improved because of it. Call or email us
today to get in on the action.
fishing action out of Lafitte today. Captain Barry and
Captain Mike had a box of redfish and trout, My crew of
Robert and Seth had a limit of trout and a few reds. The
trout were biting on just about anything this morning, tight
line or under a cork. Thanks to the Fox and Aschinger
parties for fishing with us. Out again tomorrow with 3
I would like to
thank all our clients that fished with us this past
week. The Burton party, Hickman party, Reeves party,
Hinojosa party, Howard
Wu bachelor party,
McCrea party, Burns party and Herrington party. We have
been mostly fishing for trout but did have some reds
Scented gulps under
a cork and tight lining swim baits have been working
well. Shrimp on the bottom and under a cork have been
working on the reds .
Falcon rods and volt
reels with power pro have been putting the fish in the
boat. We have several boats out the next two days.
Today I had the John Wright
party visiting us from Canada. Fishing has been slow the
past few weeks but we are still catching a mix bag of
redfish, speckled trout, drum and bass. Most of the fish are
being caught on shrimp under a cork or with Berkley Gulps.
Today we had
a big trip with the National Gypsum group. The guys had 8
gallon bags of fillets to cook up at Jan's. The weather was
cold, windy and the water was muddy. We are all hoping for
the conditions to improve in the next week or so. I think
everyone in Southeast Louisiana has had enough of the cold
weather and what seems like never ending fronts moving
through our area.
Tough conditions continue to
dominate our fishing conditions. We really need some
consistent weather patterns. Today we had a group of
customers who battled the conditions and as you can see,
they finished with a grab bag of fish. Redfish, Speckled
Trout, Catfish, Flounder we all in the mix today.
