May 31, 2006 - My clients for
Wednesday Tom and John Timmerman and I left the dock at 5:45. I had
to pick them up at a hotel in New orleans so it was an early morning
for me. These guys had no intention of keeping any fish so I asked
if they didn`t mind I would like to keep a mess for myself. I told
the members at the last VFW meeting I would bring them a mess to
cook up at next months meeting. The bite was on and after 50 or 60
trout and and 7 or 8 reds, only keeping 25 trout, it was back to the
dock for an early morning. Thanks guys for the fish donation.

Cody and I left the dock at 5:45 in search for the almighty Mr.

effort the boys managed to put 13 reds, a few trout and 1 flounder
in the boat. All were released except the flounder which will be my
dinner tomorrow night. Conditions: sunny and hot, clear water, light

was for the Victoria Inn. Carol , Alvin and I left the dock at 5:45.

light winds. Bait: smoke/char ,glow/char cocahoe`s on the bottom.

had the big boy of the day a nice 9 pounder. Conditions; windy with
rain. Bait; all fish were caught on gold spoons.
May 26, 2006 - (Morning Trip)
I am sitting here and writing this report and my butt is
dragging after fishing 2 trips today and having to fish 2 tomorrow.
My clients Doug and Iain from New Orleans had fished with me in
January and it was all trout. Today they wanted to try for some
redfish and that was music to my ears. The first couple of stops
produced 6 or 7 fish but the 3rd stop was awesome. It was just like
a couple of days ago when I was fly fishing, but today I had
witnesses to the hundreds of redfish that were blowing up around the
boat. By 11am these guys had sore arms and hands so it was back to
the dock to clean some fish. Conditions: sunny and slick as glass.
Bait: spoons and spinner baits and and probably the kitchen sink, if
you wanted to try it.
Capt. Bobby had Mike MacAuthor, and his son Dwight from Florida.
In Florida their redfish limit is only 1 per person. Boy were they
in for a surprise. It was redfish slam for them also. They used
spinners and gold spoons to catch their fish and had cooked up for
lunch at Jan's restaurant.
Friday afternoon trip with Philip
Federico and his son Torin. This
was my kind of trip, catch and release. Dad caught caught the fish
of the day, but Torin had the only bass, a nice 2 pounder. Out again
for a double header tomorrow.
May 24, 2006 - Fly Fisherman's Dream.
Every once and a while on a day off I like to fish reds on a
Today was a day like no other. Hundreds of reds were blowing large
white shrimp out of the water. Every time I hooked on to a fish 50
or more would swim along side him, just awesome. The water would
turn to gold all around the boat. I was using an 8wt Orvis rod and
fly reel with a red & gold foil spoon. Get the lure anywhere around
the school and hold on. Today even the guide was excited. Capt. E.J
May 22, 2006 - My guest today
Paul Krutak from Lincoln, Ne. and I left the dock at 5:45 heading
for Barataria Bay with trout on our mind. First stop, mother load.
Paul had his limit by 7:15 and we only kept trout over 15 inches.
After stoping at four of five other places and catching trout at
everyone, it was off to find a redfish. 2 reds was all we could put
in the boat so it was back to the dock to clean some fish.
Conditions: light winds, clear water, awesome. Bait: cocahoe`s on
the bottom, glow/char. Top dog, just about any color.
May 21, 2006 - My clients
today, Bruce, Joe and Matt deceided to try for some redfish instead
of going after trout. After a 30 minute boat ride and a half dozen
cast Bruce put the first fish in the boat and by mornings end we had
a limit in the boat. 14 we brought back and one big boy that was
caught by Matt that was released till next time. Conditions: sunny
with a light breeze. Bait: spoons and spinners.
May 20, 2006 - Kyle, Abby and
Sherry joined me today. The girls are attending Southeastern
University in Hammond. Today was almost a repeat of yesterday
catching a fish here and there. Half the distance that I put on the
boat yesterday. 16 that we brought to the dock, lots of throw backs
and a 15lb black drum, caught by Sherry that was released to fight
another day. Conditions: fair and sunny, extremely low water. Bait:
smoke/char. H&H cocahoe`s on the bottom.
Capt. Joe`s crew Dewayne, Donald, Robert and Terry from
Mississippi had a fairly good day on the water. Even with the low
water they managed to locate a mess of reds and a dozen trout and a
flounder for a kicker. All of their fish were caught under a cork,
plastic and shrimp.
May 19, 2006 - My guest today
Jason, Todd and Nick left the dock at 6:30am. Itseems someone has
pulled the drain plug in Lafitte. Its hard to believe how low the
water is down here. After putting 80 miles on the water we managed
to catch 20 fish. That's about 4 miles a fish. It was one here and
one there. Conditions: very low water, sunny and mild. Bait:
smoke/char. Cocahoe`s on the bottom.
May 15, 2006 - Today
the Banderet family from Metairie joined me. Once again the wind
prevented me from going to the area's I wanted to fish, so it was
off to try and find some redfish. Today even that didn't work out. 5
reds and a hand full of trout for the day. A couple of good meals is
about all they had. Capt. Joe's crew had about the same thing, a
couple of reds and a dozen trout. Conditions: very windy. Bait:
smoke/char. Cocahoe's on the bottom.
Evening - Mr. Henry with his limit of reds that we caught this
afternoon. 2 on a spinner bait and 3 on a gold spoon. It took us all
morning to catch 5 and this afternoon it took about an hour to catch
a limit. You just never know, that's why they call it fishing.
May 14, 2006 -
Sunday I took the day off and had Capt. Nick take out a group of 4.
They had a limit of bull reds and a few smaller ones. They were
fishing an area in Little Lake that we all call the Windmill. The
group had a great time!
May 13, 2006 -
had the pleasure of fishing with Steve and George from Knoxville,
TN. Most of the area's we fished had only small fish but we did
manage to catch 9 reds, 2 drum and 33 keeper trout. Very unusual
weather conditions the past few days, almost like a front in
January, only just not as cold. Cold front conditions with very low
water. Bait: cochahoe's, smoke/char. glow/char. on the bottom. Out
May 10, 2006 -
My clients today Gabriel and Don left the dock at 5:45. Just
like yesterday the winds were howling out of the south. Today it was
off to try something different. We headed to the southern side off
Little Lake to see if we could put a few trout in the boat. Working
the shoreline and cuts along the bank we managed to put 22 trout and
7 reds in the boat. 2 of the reds were 30 inches and were released
to fight another day. Most of the trout were 15 to 17 inches.
Conditions: cloudy and 20 mph plus winds. Bait: H&H cocahoe's
smoke/char. On the bottom. I would like to thank the guys for
putting the big fish back. They are fun to catch but are not the
best ones to eat.
May 9, 2006 - With the winds
howling before daybreak, Capt Joe and I had no other options of
where to fish. So it was off to the protected ponds to chase
redfish. Claire and Wayne fished with Capt. Joe, and Joe and
Malcolm, back for a second time, fished with me. 18 reds between
both boats with a few quick releases, fish spit out the hook, line
cut on the prop, hung up in the duck blind. Those usual excuses that
us fisherman make. Anyway considering the conditions things worked
out very well. Conditions: cloudy and very windy. Bait: Spinners
with cocahoe's minnows, is there anything else.
May 7, 2006 -The Brogdon
family fishing trip. J. Westley, at the young age of 75 was the man
of the day with a 30 inch 12 pounder. I guess the boys will here
about it all the way back home. Conditions: windy Bait: glow
beetle's under a cork, H&H cocahoe`s , smoke/char fished on
the bottom. Fishing is doing great, as long as the weather
conditions don't call for sailing.. May is one of out better months.
Call now to reserve your day.
May 5, 2006 -
Bill and Scott joined me today. They are staying at the Victoria Inn
with their wives. The girls just love this place. Anyway, with all
the trawling going on it was off to the ponds to find some redfish
and it didn`t take long to put a limit in the boat with several over
27 inches that we released to fight another day. Even people from
California can catch them. Conditions; Sunny with light winds. Bait
Spinners with smoke/char Cocahoes
May 3, 2006 - My
neighbor Henry and I left the house at 4pm on a short afternoon
adventure to catch a few reds for his dad. We were back at 6 with
his limit of reds and one 12 pounder that we released to fight
another day. My kind of trip, Henry gets to clean the fish. Spinners
with smoke/char. Cocahoe`s was the bait of the evening. The water
was clean and the tide was high and there was no place in the ponds
that you couldn't go. A very short productive trip.
May 1, 2006 -
Mississippi gang out with me again today. Jude, Edward, Daniel and
Kevin who has fished with me many times before headed out early in
search of trout. The first few areas had dirty water, no bait and no
bird activity. It was off to the east side of Barataria bay, the
water cleaned up and we found the fish. The action was HOT,
but it took 150 or more to put 48 keepers in the box. 3 reds and one
drum also made it to the cleaning table. Conditions: light winds,
stained water. Bait: glow beetle`s under a cork, Cocahoe`s on the
bottom for the reds.
April 29, 2006 - On
Saturday we fished the Coe Solutions fishing rodeo. Capt.
Mike, Capt. Bobby and myself and the gang headed out at 6:30 am.
With the winds howling by 7am, our only chance was protected
ponds and canals. By 10am many boats were returning to the dock,
but we stuck it out catching a total of 40 fish between the 3 boats,
with most of the fish beings reds. Conditions: as tough as it gets,
winds 30mph plus. Bait: spoons and spinner baits. A big thanks to
the guys for sticking it out with us. They worked hard for their
Also on Saturday Capt. Keith had Chuck, Kyle, Blake and Thomas .
They were here enjoying Jazz Fest and getting in some Louisiana
fishing. A catch of 14 reds for a very windy day was about as good
as it gets. Good job guys.
April 28, 2006 - A little
friendly competition among friends. Like Keith told me when we were
leaving the dock, David was the pro on the boat. The pictures say it
all. This is what you call saving the best for last. A beautiful 12
pounder for the last fish of the day. Conditions: calm early turning
very windy by 9am. Bait: Cocahoe`s on the bottom for the trout.
Spinners baits for the reds. My kind of trip. All fish released to
fight another day.
