Another great day with the
Hulse party, Deana, Debbie, Steve and Doug. Capt. Dave had the Muench part.
Today it was spoons that put most of the fish in the boat. The bite was not
as furious as yesterday but they still managed to put over 20 reds in the
boat. A few fillets for the house and a few for lunch at Jan`s Cajun

What a great problem to
have, too many big fish today!! The red fishing has been off the charts the
past couple of days. Capt. Mike J. had the Marc Hall party, Capt. Mike D had
the Lloyds for their second day, Capt. Dave had the Josh hall party, Capt.
Barry and I the Hulse party for their second day. Spinnerbaits and spoons
have been been on the hit list, but they will probably hit just about
anything. Out again tomorrow with three boats.

What a great day to be on
the water, partly cloudy and light winds.
Five boats out today, Capt. Dave had the Lawson's, Capt Austin had the
Shapiro's, Capt. Mike had the Lloyd's, also fishing with him again tomorrow,
Capt. Barry and I had the Hulse party from Oklahoma. Steve and Deana on his
boat and Doug and Debbie on mine, back for their third time in a year. All
boats put a spanking on the redfish. Spinner baits and spoons, but the
spinner bait with the smoke/chart cocahoe worked the best. Thanks to all
Captains and the clients that fished with them.

Girls day out with the
Charlene Morris party. It was after 8am by the time we got on the water so
shrimp on the bottom was the way to go. The girls caught sting rays, eels,
gar fish and a mess of keeper redfish.
May 18, 2012
Friday morning redfish trip
with Ron Jones and his friend John. Our
number one area did not work out due to the wind, but the back up plan
turned out to be just fine. All fish caught on spinner baits smoke/chart.
Also today Capt. Barry had Robin and Jacob from Denham
Springs, LA out for some speckled trout fishing. They did a great job and
managed to catch 35 or so.
May 16, 2012
Today I had Jill and Chris
Kauker, from Tennesee joined me for some
redfish action. The bite was slow early but as the tide started to move the
action began to pick up. Once again it was ladies day as Jill boated most of
the fish, but I must say Chris was coming on strong towards the end of the
day. All fish caught on spoons and spinner baits.
May 14, 2012
Today I had the pleasure of
fishing the Jamie Buth party. In March Jamie and Eric fished with me, today they
also brought along Mary on her first red fishing trip. After a late start they
still managed to catch a fine mess of reds. All fish caught on spoons, we
could not buy one on a spinner bait. A beautiful day to be out on the water.

May 11, 2012
The Mark Lunsford party did
not get much fishing time in today due to thunderstorms moving into the
area, but they did manage to catch a nice fish fry for the time they did
fish. We left the dock at 7am and had to head back in by 9:30am due to rain.
The fish were biting this morning and should continue for this upcoming
week. All caught on blk/chart spinner baits. Thanks again to the Lunsford
party, look forward to taking everyone out again soon.

Another beautiful day on the
water. My clients today Paige, Kristy,
Steve and Drew are from Oregon and Washington State, a very long way from
Louisiana. It was Paige`s birthday today, so I guess it was only proper that
she catch the big fish of the day, a nice 10 pounder, gracefully released to
fight another day. All fish caught on spoons and spinnerbaits, black/chart
and Bass Assassin Texas Roach. Have a safe trip back to the Northwest.

Jim Schill has fished with
me for the last several years. He is from
Texas and lives on Lake Fork, a fine bass lake. Its usually six guys that
make the trip but this time the wives came along. His wife Glenda, Jerry and
his wife Alice. I have to say Glenda put it on everyone today catching all
her fish on a spoon. Spinner baits, blk/chart and Texas roach also worked.
May 5-6, 2012
Weekend trip with the Scott
Zumwalt party. It was redfish and more
redfish but today Buddy and Ronnie had to work for the fish we caught.
Spinnerbaits and shrimp on the bottom was the ticket on both days.
May 4, 2012
Today Capt. Barry had Martin and his 2 sons
Aaron and Scott. Nice day of fishing for the group. They managed to boat a
few trout and a nice mess of redfish. The big redfish was released.
I left my camera on the boat for the other
party we had today, will update that trip tomorrow but we managed to boat
about 40-50 redfish. The good fishing should continue tomorrow.
May 1, 2012
Mike Sheldon and his wife
Toni joined me today and it was just as hot as yesterday. The first hour of
the morning was beautiful. After that the wind really picked up making
fishing difficult. However, late this evening the weather conditions are
expected to change with a chance a rain and additional cloud cover. That
usually mean better fishing if we can find clean water. We will be back at
it with Mike and Toni tomorrow.
