forecast for August
- August is usually a very good month for fishing. The trout
action is much better, as all the schoolies are growing up, making for
nicer catches. The Redfish action should remain hot this month, as the
tide will remain high with all the southeasters blowing. Key this
month will be the weather. As long as we stay clear from tropical
disturbances, it should make for an exciting month of fishing! Call us

We will be closed until further notice
due to Hurricane Katrina.
As of 9:00 p.m., Katrina is on a path
to hit the Lafitte area with Category 5 winds (155+ mph) and a
possible 20-25 foot storm surge.
We wanted to inform you all that we are safe and
out of the path of this phenomenon. We thank everyone who has
called and we appreciate all the offers we have recieved to stay
with our clients. My family and I really appreciate it! At this
time, we ask for your prayers and with a little luck, we will
make it through this very difficult situation.

- Two groups out this weekend with five boats. The
Erik Meyer group and the John Gurley group. Four boats including
myself fished trout near the gulf and all had good catches. The
fifth boat stayed in and had a box of beautiful reds. My camera
battery died before I could take any more pictures but one of my
clients took some with his camera. I`ll post a report when I
August 17, 2005
- Only 4 bass this afternoon and one redfish. With the full moon
just a day or so away the bite will probably be after dark. I
had to take a picture of this bronze beauty that fell to a
tequila sunrise worm. Awesome looking fish.
August 15, 2005 -
From 6:30 to 7:45 it was action, action, action. I
kept a limit in my live well just to take a picture. The bite
last only for an hour so its just being there at the right time.
At least 25 fell to tequila surise again today and all fish were
released to fight another day.
August 13, 2005 -Another
one of those sweet afternoon bass fishing trips. The fish turned
on big time from 7 to 8 with over 30 fish being caught and
released. Not anything big but just a bunch of nice fish.
Tequila sunrise worms was the hot bait for today.
August 12, 2005 -

flounder and drum. Here are some pictures of some of the fish we
kept and also had for lunch at Jan`s.
August 7, 2005 -

morning started off slowly but ended with a bang landing over 25
redfish. Here is the father son team with a couple of nice ones.
H&H cocahoe's , OD green, pearl belly and shrimp on the bottom
were the bait of the day.

Matthew, Chris, Ryon, and Scott here in New Orleans
visiting the french quarter joined me today for some louisiana
fishing. We made the long run to the gulf only to fine lots of
school trout so we came back in and fished for reds catching
only three in the 27 inch range.Will post a picture when they
email it to me, forgot my camera.
August 4, 2005 -
Little trout everywhere along the beach. You just have to
hunt and peck to fine some keepers. My guest Vanessa and Jose
from Texas caught over a 100 trout, tightline, under a cork and
top water on any color. The shrimp are so big the trout cannot
get them in their mouth. Once again the thunderstorms chased us
in. Here is Jose with a mess for dinner.
August 3, 2005 - The
afternoon thunderstorms have made for some great bass fishing
the past week. The afternoons have been much better than the
mornings. Check this story out. I set the hook on a small bass.
I missed the fish but he took the worm so I put another worm
on, made a cast in the same spot the fish hit it again. I set
the hook, no fish but I hooked the worm out of his mouth that
he had taken on the previous cast, two grape worms on the same
hook and no fish. That was a first. Once again most fish were
caught on curly tail worms Henry Bourgeois with a couple of nice
bass from this afternoons trip.
August 2, 2005 -
Today my friends Mike and Joe and I headed for the gulf
to check out the trout. After 20 minutes of trolling the beach
we hit a nice school of fish. By the time we had put over 2
dozen in the box a killer thunderstorm drove
us in. Here is a picture of Joe with the little fish that pulled
us around the gulf. The fish were caught under a cork, down on
the bottom and top water on just about any color.
July 29 - 31, 2005 -
From Friday to Sunday I did some short afternoon
bass trips only fishing from 6 to 8:15. Fri. & Sat. produced
over 25 bass on both days but the bite slowed down catching only
8 or 10 on Sunday due to no tide movement. All fish were caught
on grape and as it got later black grape curly tail worms and
all were released to fight another day. Friday I tried fishing
from 10 pm to 12 am on a very dark night without having a bite.
The next 3/4 moon I`ll try it again.
July 27, 2005 -
My guest today the McCann`s , Leroy, Dolores and their
daughter Sue from Ohio left the Victoria Inn Dock at 5:45. The
first couple of areas we fished had no bait and no fish. On our
third stop we found fish hitting on live shrimp, even had a
shrimp jump in the boat, that was a first. The fish of the day
was a huge flounder caught by Dolores which will be dinner
tonight at the Inn. We were chased in by a severe thunderstorm
with a mix bag of fish, reds. drum, bass and that awesome
flounder. Over 40 fish were boated today much better than the
past few trips.
