July 25, to August 4, 2008 - What an interesting week it has been. With all of the crazy weather including a tropical storm, we have been working hard to put fish in the boat. 80% of trips this week, found a nearby camp out on the water to escape those pesky thunderstorms. We all know that when there is thunderstorms, there is also wind. The winds have been kinda slack, but when a storm pops up, it starts blowing in a hurry. This changes the bite is so many ways. Fish that were biting stop, water gets blown around, and we have to start chasing the fish. All is all, the guides really did a great job this week, with lots of limits of reds continuing to hit the dock. Fish were caught on gold spoons, and cocahoes on spinners. Black and chartreuse is still money, although, purple and chartreuse isn't far behind.

Capt. Barry had the Carter party out Saturday, this was their second trip, and they have already pledged to back again for their third trip soon.

The rest of the weekend went like this. It was an SEC weekend, Friday Capt Mike, Barry and I fished the Chuck Reuse party, It was the Auburn Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs. On Saturday I had the Randy Davis family, Randy, his sons Joshua, Ben and his friend Joshua. Dad was an Alabama fan and the boys are heading to Auburn, ouch pops. Go Tigers, LSU Tigers that is. Anyway, lets get back to fishing. The rain on both days was something to deal with. Friday it wasn't until late morning, but on Saturday we didn't leave until 7:30. Redfish, drum and bass on Friday, redfish and a few Bass on Saturday. The drum under a cork and the reds on spinner baits with Power Pro line. With any luck this tropical storm will push some saltwater towards Lafitte so we can start moving the trout of the beaches. Nothing like catching bass on the grass beds in Little Lake though...shhhh!



July 17 - 23, 2008 - Another excellent weekend of fishing down on the bayou. Lots of redfish, and lots of bass made it on ice this week. All trips ran without issues, and only one got chased in by weather. The redfish bite still remains very steady, and most fish are between 4-6 pounds, with some heavy hitters around 12+ being released. Still fishing around Little Lake, Turtle Bay areas with Black and Chartreuse H&H Cocahoes on a #4 gold spinner. Had a few windy days that kind of stained the water in some places, but all it really did was push all of the schooling reds to the places that have the best water clarity. We have been spanking the bass in the evenings. Just a few minutes from the marina could land you on some beautiful grass beds that are loaded with those beautiful green trout. Catching a few on a spinner bait, and buzz bait, but the ticket has been a grape colored curly tail worm, with a 1/8 ounce bullet weight and Gamagatsu hooks.

Today I had the price family in the morning, and I ran a bass trip in the afternoon with Marcel and Eric. The weather in the morning only gave us a limited amount of time to fish, but we ended up with seven nice reds in the short time we fished, all caught on spinner baits. The weather settled down in the afternoon, cloudy, windy, but no rain. Perfect Bass fishing weather. 30 plus bass, all caught on worms, just what these guys were looking for. More photos to follow.

July 16, 2008 - Wednesday I had a trip for the Victoria Inn. Christy, Paul and I left the dock around 5:45 am. First stop produced only a couple of keeper drum, but no reds. Finally after trying a half dozen places we put 5 or 6 in the box. After another move we hit the gold mine. As I pulled up to this point I could see 50 or more reds, which easily finished the day for us. By then they were ready to head back to the Inn. Once again I tried several colors but Blk/char caught all the fish

Evening Bass Trip - I have always said anytime my son Keith fishes with me he always manages to catch the largest fish. He, Dave and myself left the house a little after 6, we stopped counting after 70. It was non stop action. Caught a few on a pumpkinseed french fry but purple worms still produced most of the fish. Keith`s fish was a little over 4lbs and Dave had the only redfish. All fished released to fight another day.


July 15, 2008 - Another afternoon that I couldn't pass up. Left the house at 6:30 pm 20 bass and 1 keeper redfish, all on a purple worm. Tried several other colors with no results, so back to purple. Back to red fishing tomorrow with some clients from the Victoria Inn. Capt. E.J.

July 11 - 14, 2008 - Sometimes fronts are good for something. I found a great spot late yesterday, caught three bass on half a dozen cast, so I just knew if the rain slowed down a little this afternoon the bass should turn on. Left the house around 6pm, 22 bass, not anything big but a kick a-- good time. I fish all week long, and when I get a couple hours off, what do I do, well I go fishing in the rain of course.  Caught one on a char/wht spinner bait and all the rest on a 6" H&H purple curly tail worm.

On Sunday I had the pleasure of fishing with Debbie and Gary Brown. We left the dock at Victoria Inn at 5:30 am sharp. I had left them biting yesterday, but the windy conditions turned the area off. We had to jump from place to place to put a dozen fish in the boat. We could see the fish but not many would take the bait. Once again H&H spinner baits in blk/char did the damage.

Saturday, we had a few boats out. Conditions were HOT, and that was the fishing, as well as the temperatures. We all left the dock early to try and beat the heats, as well as the flotilla of boats chasing the reds in the Little Lake area. When we arrived, fish were flying over the sides almost immediately. Not all keepers, but a good bite. All boats ended the day with nice limits of fish, with plenty released to fight another day. Fish were caught on spinner baits, black/chartreuse and purple and chartreuse. Capt. Tommy had the Greg Pittman party and I had the Patterson's. Two boxes of redfish and one flat fish with several big boys released to fight another day. Spinner baits in the morning and top dogs during the middle of the day, not what you would think. Who am I to question what works. Out again tomorrow with a couple from the Victoria In

On Friday I had the birthday party, the Gottsegen`s. Dad and 3
eight year olds. We gave the trout a try for the first time in awhile,
but not many keepers, just a bunch of small trout and reds, but the kids enjoyed catching them anyway.




July 1 - 10, 2008 - Sorry for the slow response with the reports folks, I have been really busy fishing and working on some other projects with my boat. Fishing is great. The trout are finally starting to work themselves into a nice pattern, and the redfish bite has still been pretty good. Been having lots of rain out there, but if you can get after in early, we can usually beat the rain.

The Beardsley's had fished with me just two weeks ago and were back for another round of redfishing. One problem, the weather would not co-operate. We were only able to fish a couple of hours before the weather ran us in. 5  keeper reds counting this beauty caught by Robert. Spinner baits, blk/char, what else. I also have some other recent trip photo's.
