weekend's action was nothing short of incredible. We had a couple
boats out each day, managed to squeeze in some good weather and the
fish decided to cooperate. On Saturday morning, my crew literally
had one of the best bites we have had in quite some time. Numerous
times we had 2, 3, and 4 on at a time. The kicker though, we were
not catching trout, we were catching redfish. These were not your
normal fish either, we hit a school of all BIG fish. We easily
caught our limit of monsters, and let at least 30-40 more go that
were over 27 inches. My crew was fishing in a rodeo, and they won 1st, 2nd, and
3rd place. So congrats to them. I am creating this report from out
of town, so when I return on Tuesday, check back to see some
outstanding photos. Until then, see ya on the water, Thanks, Capt.

Tuesday's trip was one of those last minute bookings. Gordan, a
neighbor of mine had a couple of friends visiting from Tennessee.
They had fished yesterday and his boat started giving him motor
problems so he gave me a call to set up a trip for today. Once again
the wind kept us off any open water so we headed for the ponds some
redfish. 15 keepers, mostly 16 to 18 inches with 2 going 5 to 7 lbs,
good eating fish. Shrimp under a cork was the bait of the day.

Thursday, Carl and Lisa Reitz from Kansas had fished with me a
couple of years ago. Once again the wind was our worst enemy,
it kept us in the small bays and duck ponds. Trout fishing wasn't
going to be, so red fish turned out to be the fish of the day. Back
at the dock at 11:30, a nice limit of reds, a few trout and one
flounder only keeping a small red, 1 trout and the flounder for
lunch. My kind of trip, catch and release. All fish were caught on
smoke/char. cocahoe`s on the bottom.

Friday I had Tim Ford and his friend Jamie from Florida, a
very windy day. We managed several nice reds and a few trout for
our effort. Friday afternoon I had the Ben Azeredo party
turned out similar results tightlining. Berkley gulps and
spinner baits were the bait of the day.
Saturday, Capt. Tony had the Mike Longwell party, this was a
great crew that fished in tough conditions to catch 30 plus
trout and 2 reds. I had Gary Denson and his friend Debbie. We
managed to catch 16 nice trout and 2 reds on a short morning
Sunday, Capt Bobby had Hughes Bourgogne and his two sons. 30
plus trout and a couple of reds was their catch in the stiff
May 9-16, 2007 - Eight boats out
this past weekend. Saturday Capt's. Kevin, Raoul, Tommy and
myself had the Calvin Champagne party. Capt Kevin also had an
afternoon trip with E.O. Dukes and Julian Dority. Sunday Capt
mike had the Hilbert`s from Florida. Brenda caught the biggest
trout of the day a nice 23 inch 4 pounder. Capt Tommy had Chris
and three of his friends who's names I didn`t get.
May 1 - 7, 2007 -
Monday, Tim And Sara were a long way from their state of
Connecticut. I picked them up at 6 am at The Victoria Inn`s dock and
the wind was already blowing. Our first couple of stops didn`t
produce one bite and by then the wind was gusting 30mph plus.
Another 20 minute boat ride found us some clean water and 10 nice
redfish. Sara had the big fish of the day with a nice 9 pounder. All
fish were caught on spinner baits, probably the only thing you could
cast on a day like this. All fish were released to fight another
Over the weekend, Capt. Kevin had Kenny Inman and his wife from
Metairie, and Capt. Bobby had Mary and Leo Norris, and Corie &
Matthew Heden. Fishing was a little tough for them this weekend with
stiff southeast breeze. Both boats ducked into the marsh to fish
redfish. Capt. Kevin's crew ended the day with a few redfish and a
couple trout, and Capt. Bobby also followed suit. Thanks to the
crews that fished with us over the past week, and congrats to the
Inman party who came down to stay at the Victoria Inn to celebrate
their 10 year wedding anniversary. All fish this weekend were caught
on cochahoes with a spinner, gold spoons, and cochahoes tight lined.
Friday`s trip left the dock at 10:30. The weather chased us in
around 2, with only a hand full of fish before the heavy rains
came.. Here is Sabrina Hardy with a real nice flounder. All the fish
were caught on shrimp under a cork. The message is ready to be sent

April 26-30, 2007
- What a great weekend of fishing in the Lafitte
area. Saturday I had Ken Sandberg and his two sons, Jonathan and
Stephen. They have fished with me for the last several years,
usually around Jazz Fest. We made the run to Barataria Bay to catch
a few trout and then it was off to find some redfish, which is what
they wanted most of all. They enjoy them on the half shell on the
BBQ pit and ended up with 5 gallons of fish to take home.
Conditions: light winds and clear. Bait: spinner baits, smoke/char.
For the reds, tight lining smoke/char cocahoe's for the trout.
Saturday afternoon trip with Brian Loui and Shy Darnell. They
came all the way from Honolulu, Hawaii to fish with us and as hard
as it is to believe Shy caught the biggest fish of her life here in
Louisiana. The fish were still where I had left them that morning.
The trout had shut down but the red fish were still hungry and still
smacking that spinner bait.
Capt. Mike`s party for Saturday morning, Dennis and Helen Ownby.
They had headed out with us in search of speckled trout, but also
returned to the smaller inland bays in search of redfish. Here are a
few pictures of some of their catch.
Monday`s trip with Don and Bob here with the insurance convention
in New Orleans. The guys didn`t want to leave early so it turned out
to be a 10am departure time. It was kind of what I call a picnic
trip. Bring some lunch and a few beers or maybe lots of beer. The
trout bite was over but the redfish gave us plenty of action. The
guys boated over a limit of fish and we were back by 2pm, all catch
and release. My kind of trip. Spinner baits have been the hot bait
for me the past few days.
