Fishing forecast for
May was a great month for fishing! Many limits of
redfish were caught, as well as many limits of speckled trout. The
weather in Louisiana was very dry, and for the most parts winds were
light. The water clarity has been outstanding, and I think it will
continue with the low Mississippi River levels. Summertime southeast
winds will push in the pretty green water from the gulf, so speckled
trout limits should continue. Fishing strong tides this month should
produce nice catches of reds, and specks. The shrimping season is in
full swing so its a feeding frenzy out there; be sure to book your
trip and get in on the action.

June 30, 2005 - Every once a
a while I have the pleasure of fishing with some very good
fisherman , as was the case today. My trip today for the
Victoria Inn with the Stevenson`s was as easy as it gets. They
boated 50 or so trout but only 17 keepers, 6 nice reds and 1
flounder. The weather chased us in early but still a nice catch
for the time we had. I beleive they enjoy fishing as much as I
do. Good fishing and good fisherman , you can`t ask for
anything more. Thanks for a great day.
June 29, 2005 - Every year I
donate one fishing trip to the Swollfest fishing rodeo which
benefits the American Diabetes Association. Jamison Bagwell won
this years trip and he brought along three of his friends. With
very litle tide movement we managed to put 30 fish in the box
with that many throw backs. Here is a picture of the trophy
redfish that was caught today or maybe it was the bait was the
June 26, 2005 - Robert
Weinmann, his mother and his son Bobby joined me today. After a
late start due to some early morning thunderstorms not many
places we tried produced fish. Mom caught the most trout, and of
the 15 or so reds we caught we called it a draw. Big fish went
to Bobby with a nice 7 lb red.
On Sunday Capt. Mike by request had the Pat McCurnin group. Mike
has been fishing the same area the past few days with
respectable catches of trout each day. Most of his fish are
falling to bayou chub minnows tight lining.
June 25, 2005 - Capt. Mike
and I fished the Marla Hony group from Mississippi. Without much
help from my boat, Capt. Mike`s crew picked up the slack and the
gang ended the day with enough fish for a family fish fry.
June 24, 2005 - Today I had
the pleasure of fishing with Boyce Davis and Bob Bassett from
Prescott Az. They had been wade fishing in Grand Isle for the
past three days. Today they wanted to give the red fish a try so
thats what we did. Boyce had the big fish of the day with a 10
lb beauty with no spots. We also had three nice flounder.
June 23, 2005 - Our last day
with the Reams and the Reese`s. Capt. Bob and I set out to catch
red fish. Between both boats we caught and released over 35
reds The Reams were the champs of the day with a 28 inch red.
Not one trout was landed by either boat but the Reese`s did
manage to catch two nice flounder. Thanks for three great days
June 22, 2005 - Capt. Joe
fished the Marjorie Bowen group from Texas, Betty , Virginia ,
Robert and Marjorie. The first day turned out to be very
productive but on day two they worked hard for the fish they
caught. The accommodations at the Victoria Inn and the food at
Jans was enjoyed by all. The gang will be back in the fall to
try again. Thanks a bunch.
Capt. Mike had the pleasure of fishing with Victoria Diebold and
Chip Hart from Cincinnati, OH. They caught and released most of
their fish but they did keep a few which Mike and I had for
lunch. Thanks guys, as always it was great.
The Reese`s and the Reams were at it again trying to see who
could out do who. Day two turned out to be just like yesterday
with the big trout going to the Reams at 16 inches and the big
red to the Reese`s at 29 inches and 10 plus pounds.
June 21, 2005 - Capt. Bob
and I fished an afternoon trip. He had Bill Reams and his son
and I had Donald Reese and his son. It was a battle for biggest
trout and biggest red fish . Day one went ot the Reams for a 16
inch trout and the Reese`s took big red at 25 inches. Day 2
June 20, 2005 - My guest for
today were Frank, Darren, Gary, Harvey, and Shane. My 22ft Bay
Stealth had its work cut out. These guys knew what they were
doing and it made for a very enjoyable day, even with 6 people
on the boat. With windy conditions and limited areas to fish we
managed over 30 fish. All fish were caught on H & H cocahoe
minnows 1/4oz head on the bottom.
June 19, 2005 - Capt. Joe
and I fished a crew from the Victoria Inn. A front had moved in
overnight, with strong winds and muddy water both boats had a
total of 20 fish. With the bite not so good we made a short day
of it to spend the rest of Fathers day with our families.
June 18, 2005 - After a busy
weekend its time to get caught up on my fishing reports. I had
the pleasure of fishing with John Bergeron and his son John Jr.
on Saturday. The first area we fished had several schools of
drum swimming by and we managed to hook up 7 or 8 only boating
4, all on plastic. The next few stops produced 6 reds 4 trout, 1
flounder and a bass. The guys left with a nice mess of fish for
Capt. Tommy fished the Shawn Curtis group, Kelli, Haley, Kevin
They caught over 30 nice trout fishing the reefs with plastic on
the bottom.They were here bowling in a tournament in Baton
Rouge. Shawn said the fishing went a lot better than the
June 16, 2005 - Today has to
have been one of the hottest days of the year. The fish we
caught were not stacked up anywhere. It was two or three fish
here and there. My guest Wayne Stogner and his friends Dwight
and Tony tried over a dozen places. All fish were caught on H &
H minnows purple/char.- smoke/char. off the bottom working
points with moving water. By the end of the day we managed to
put 29 fish in the box with at least that many throw backs. All
in all the guys had a great time and left with a nice mess of
fillets for dinner.
June 14, 2005 - Every now
and then you have to change tactics, lay your rod down and take
care of the kids. Today was one of those days with the Blakely
family, Jamie, Josh, Zack, Devin and Jackson from Baton Rouge.
No matter if its big fish or little fish as long as something is
pulling on the line the smile on their faces says it all. The
day started off rather slow but after making a dozen stops 15
nice fish made it to the ice chest with many more little ones
released to fight another day. We even had a 12lb red fish that
everyone had a turn in landing.
June 13, 2005 - Another
satisfied group from the Victoria Inn with a nice mix bag of
reds trout and flounder. Capt. Mike also had a couple from Cody,
Wy. and they managed to catch 7 nice reds.
June 10 - 11, 2005 - Friday
and Saturday the Waller`s, Karen, Kyle and Gene from Heber
Springs, Arkansas joined me on one of my 2 day fishing packages.
With a tropical storm close by in the gulf only Friday turned
out to be a fair day. Saturday the fish pretty much shut down,
although Karen manage to catch the two largest fish of the day.
The company was great and the food was also. You cannot control
mother nature. Once again a close call for southern Louisiana. I
will have some other reports from Capt. Mike as soom as his
guest emails me the pictures.
June 9, 2005 - Today I had
the pleasure of fishing with Pat Randall and his dad. They
usually fish on the east side of the river but today they
decided to give the west side a try. The redfish did not
co-operate catching only three but we did manage to catch over
25 nice trout and one flounder. All fish were caught tight
lining smoke/char. cocahoe minnows with a 1/4 oz.jig head.
June 8, 2005 - Today I
fished a group for the Victoria Inn, Clent, Shana, Josh and
Danielle visiting here from Georgia. We left the dock at 6:30 in
search of red fish. After a dozen were in the boat it was off to
hopefully find a few trout ending the day with 25 in the ice
chest. Reds and trout for dinner at the Victoria Inn and a
couple of bags of fillets to bring back home.
June 7, 2005 - Vacation is
over and its time to get back to the business and hand, catching
fish that is and today was a good example of that. My clients
David Lee and Kenny Zediker from Georgia boated over 20 reds and
13 keeper trout. Due to the bad weather we had overnight we
waited till morning to decide on a departure time which ended up
being 7am. Even with a late start they ended up with a nice mess
of fish and a few of them went to Jans for lunch.
