speckled trout will soon begin their spawning. The next 6 months will make

2005 - My clients Keith and Elizabeth from St. Joseph Mo.
battled stong winds and by 10:30 lots of rain. We tried to wait it out
but when lightning hit about a 100 feet from the boat it was time to run
for the border. They did manage a nice mess of reds and a half dozen
bass. Liz had the fish of the day with a 15 pounder.
2005 - Today I had the pleasure of fishing with David and
Nancy Smith from Tennesee on their first red fishing trip. Even with the
strong winds it turned out to be a very good day boating over a dozen
with 10 making the trip back home. All fish were caught on spinner
baits, junebug/ char, tried the spoon with no sucess.

April 26, 2005 - The Bryan Patterson
group from Texas fishing with Capt. Joe, Capt Mike and I had a very late
start. Due to the weather concerns we waited till this morning to set a
time for todays trip. Leaving the dock at 8:30 in some very strong winds
made for some tough fishing but all boats managed to catch a mess of
reds only keeping enough for lunch at Jans Cajun restaurant. Here are
the guys with a few of the fish we caught today.
2005 - My last day with the guys from Illinois, John. Jacob,
Bruce and Elmer. Today these yankees from up north wanted a shot at some
rod benders so with 50lb test line and a bucket of crabs, black drum
here we come. Jacob had the fish of the day with a 40 pounder. John
landing a 35 pounder for second and Bruce and Elmer with a couple of 25
pounders. We also had 6 or 8 in the 8 to 20 lb range. Here are some
pictures of the guys on their last day. They can`t wait till next year
and neither can I.
2005 - Today the John Olivet group and I headed south in
search of trout. With live bait and lots of hope we arrived at our first
spot. 4 trout and not another one after that even after trying a half
dozen places.We headed back to where we had caught the reds yesterday
and boated three and one flounder. Out
again with these guys tomorrow. Here is Bruce with big fish of the day.
April 23, 2005 - The John Olivet group,
Bruce, Elmer, Jacob and John gave it our best shot. Fishing in 25mph
winds with white caps, we managed to catch 8 reds and one bass for a
great dinner at Jans. All fish were caught on spinner baits.
2005 - When Scott Christian arrived at the dock he told me
that he had never caught a redfish but he had done a bit of bass fishing
on the federation level. After a 20 minute ride we arrived at the first
spot. I handed him a baitcasting rig with a spinner bait and told him to
pretend he was bass fishing. It did not take him long for the first fish
and we stopped counting after 12. Here is a picture of the top dog for
the day. All fish were released to fight again.Capt. E.J. Plaisance
You set my friend Mark and I up with Mike and he took us out
04/22/05.We had an outstanding day of fishing with more than enough
hits and fish to keep anyone entertained.When making the reservation I
was concerned about a Front moving in but as you predicted, four days
ahead of time, we had a perfect day.
Everything that you folks arranged was excellent. The gentleman that
drove us, Van, gave us a relaxed and corteous ride to and from the
boat. When we arrived at the dock our Captain, Mike, was set and
ready to go. He had an outstanding boat and was a great guy to spend
fishing with.I have attached a few photos of the festivities. Thank
you for a great day of fishing and we look forward to chartering with
you Gentlemen again.
Afternoon Trip - The Terry
McCarthy group left the dock at 3:45 with very little fishing time.
After a 15 minute run we stopped in some duck ponds. These guys were all
good fisherman and with strong west winds and little time they boated 8
nice reds. All fish were caught on spinner baits. Here comes another
front and there goes our water once again.
2005 - Todays trip for the Victoria Inn with their guest Tom
and Kirsten Culmsee started off with a bang. A half dozen cast and
Kirsten lands a nice 8 pounder which turned out to be the largest fish
of the day. Then Tom nails one on a spoon and his turns out to be dinner
at Victoria Inn restaurant. Today was another day of to many that got
away. In two days I`ve lost two spoons and six spinner baits, will be
changing that 10lb test line today. We ended up boating 9 fish, not
counting the ones with half my tackle, most on spinner baits.Out again
2005 - My last day with Joe Fineza and Jim McGaha. The day
was almost as good as yesterday, one fish short of a limit, just could
not put the big ones in the boat. I had spooled several reels with 10lb
test line for trout and using that was a mistake. 3 spinner baits and 1
spoon are still swimming. Here is a couple of pictures of the guys on
their last day. Jim offered me $20 to put his picture on the web with
the big fish of the day, but I told him I would do it for free. Most of
the fish fell to spinner baits with only a few caught on spoons.
Capt. Joe gave the Moritz`s who were staying at the Victoria Inn a
taste of Louisiana fishing , redfish style. Here is a picture of the
happy couple with a few fish from their limit. Spoons and H&H minnows on
the bottom were their baits of the day.
2005 - Joe and Jim sitting on Victoria Inn`s dock with a
limit of redfish. With the wind already blowing and no tide to speak of
( no trout bite) we gave the reds a shot this morning and it paid off.
A limit of reds, six bass and one trout. Spinner baits and gold spoons
were the bait of the day with most fish falling to the spoon. Joe was
the man today catching seven reds. Out with them again tomorrow.
2005 - Joe, Jim and I had a very late start, 9:30 to be
exact. By the time we got to where were going the wind had kicked up to
20mph. We fished hard for the few fish we had, 2 reds, 3 bass, 2 trout
and 1 drum. Out with the same guys tomorrow, hopefully it will be

catching some trout and bass.Most of their fish were caught on gold spoons.
2005 - Ed , Cynthia, Mckenzie Toll and Susan and Jennifer
Roth and I all on one boat. The girls learned quickly and it did not
take long to put several nice reds in the boat. Mckenzie was the winner
of the day landing the most and also the biggest. Most of the fish were
released but the few in the picture were kept for lunch at Jans. All
fish were caught on spinner baits with H&H cocahoe purple/ char minnows.
2005 - Even on windy days if you know where to look you can
catch some nice bass like these. I left the dock at 7:45 with light
winds and a light chop across the lake but by the time I arrived at my
spot the wind had kicked up to 25mph or more. I fished the calmer side
of the pond along a solid grassline landing 8 hefty bass, half on
spinner baits and the other half on a 6" curly tail grape worm These
guys smiled for a picture and are still swimming to fight another day.

- Due to the weather factor my clients Jim and Kay Crow and I
decided to play it safe and stay close to the marina as possible. We
decided to try an area where if the redfish did not bite we maybe could
catch a few bass. By 8:45 the sky began to fall and with tornados in the
area we headed back to the dock with a few nice bass for lunch at Jans
(only kept what we needed ) and the rest released to fight again.
April 5, 2005 - Jim and Kay Crow with a nice 7lb red fish
