2008 - Weekend Report
I had the pleasure of fishing with
the Haas party on Saturday, and Capt. Barry had the Adams party on
Sunday. The redfish are still around, with limits plus throwbacks
coming each day. Add a few trout and a few bass to the box, combined
with the great weather, and it was some good times. Spinner baits,
plastic cocahoes on the bottom and glow beetles under a cork have
been working the best. My pattern the past few days have been stick
and move. Give it 15 or 20 minutes and if there is no action, move
on. Sometimes moving several hundred yards will make the difference.
Sometimes you may have to move a mile or two, or change your are
completely to make it happen. Find the clean water, and some grass,
and you will find the fish close behind. Took my wife out Sunday
afternoon. 1 hour fishing trips is her thing. We caught 5 bass and
four reds 5 minutes from the house.
2008 - Fished with Ron
Phillips and his dad today. Just about a repeat of yesterday, with
the exception of a lack of trout. Caught 1 trout where we had caught
25 plus yesterday. We were done on the redfish in a couple of hours.
Tried several places for trout with no luck. Will be heading south
tomorrow checking out some different places. Spinner baits produced
all the fish today. Water was clear, winds light, perfect day to be
on the water.
2008 - My first trip since
the storms. Jim and Angela Above have fished with me before. There
are from here and are moving to Alabama next week. They wanted to
get one more fishing trip in before they left. After a short boat
ride Angela didn't waste and time before putting the first red in
the boat, with many more to follow after that. They weren't keeping
any reds so all were released, hopefully to catch again tomorrow. I
cleaned 10 nice trout for them to bring home for dinner. Spinner
baits and spoons for the reds, glow beetles under a cork for the
also caught a mix bag on his flyrod. Winds were pretty high today,
and we didn't catch as many numbers as we have been catching the
couple days before, although we caught 30 or more all together.
- We're BACK!
What a tough couple weeks it has
been down here on the Bayou. After suffering through an evacuation,
high water, and no power from Gustav, his cousin Ike decides to go
and pound on Galveston Island. Just like three years before when
Hurricane Rita hit west Louisiana, Lafitte took a tremendous storm
surge that flooded everyone's home. Almost 3 years to the day, Ike
decided to do the same thing. All the folks that were still
rebuilding from their bout with Rita, must now start over. It is
really tough to see all of the great families down here struggling.
My house is elevated, so I was lucky, and it is now time to get back
Saturday morning I made a short run
to check out the bass fishing conditions. Water was very dirty
and in some areas still smelled like rotten eggs. I fished one
area where the water was fairly clear but did not have a bite.
Tried another area in the afternoon with the same results. A
couple of days have gone bye so Jason, Capt. Barry and I figured
it was time to give it another shot. Water conditions much
better and should continue to improve. Caught about 20 fish
between us three. Barry and Jason pictured below with a few nice
ones. 1.5 and 2 pounders, I had one 3.5lbs but my camera
batteries went dead, so no picture. Worms, frogs and buzz baits
have been the producers. Capt. Barry pictured below with a 5.9
Capt. Barry and I have been scouting
several different areas the past few days. Redfish are just about
everywhere. I caught 25 or 30 trout yesterday north of Lafitte. Not
many keepers but good to know they were there, and will be growing.
Capt. Barry also caught a mess of reds in the same area in the
afternoon. On a short afternoon trip today, I caught redfish and
bass all evening long. Spinner baits for the reds and glow beetles
under a cork for the trout, its been awhile since I've thrown that.
I will be helping some friends with cleanup in lower Lafitte the
next couple of days. We will start running trips on Thursday,
hopefully with some good results.
- Hello everyone. Greetings
from Lafitte, La. We made it through the storm much better than was
anticipated. The water came up pretty high, but it was barely over
the bulkhead at the house. I had some minimal wind damage to the
roof, and siding, but all in all, we are good. Still have no power,
but hopefully they will get that turned on soon. Picked up all of
the boats this morning from Westwego, and brought them back down to
the bayou. Can't wait to go do some bass fishing this evening.
Wanted to say thanks to all the
folks who called and emailed to check on us, we really appreciate
it. Cochiara's Marina took a good lick, so I will assess that
situation soon enough, but for the meantime, I just want to let the
folks know that we are back in business. Fuel is the hardest thing
to come by at present. But, I can pull the boat on the trailer to
fill it up for trips. I want to thank all the customers who we had
to cancel for rescheduling again, and for all of our other
customers, your trips should still be on. Please call my cell phone
as the business number is currently out. (504) 329-2728. Time to get
back to work for now, I will post some pics from our bass trip
tomorrow. thanks again everyone.
- Until Further Notice. All
trips are cancelled as we prepare for Hurricane Gustav.
It seems just like
yesterday I was typing a message just like this for Hurricane
Katrina. Myself, and my family are out of harms way at my farm in
McComb, MS. We got the house boarded up, moved all of the boats to
higher ground in Westwego, and we are nervously awaiting what might
be. For Katrina, we were on the west side of the eyewall, therefore
we did not have any storm surge. It appears at this point in time
that we will not be so fortunate. It appears that the storm will
make landfall to our west near Terrebonne Bay. I am expecting
anywhere from 15-25 feet of storm surge to make it all the way from
the Gulf of Mexico, to my house in Barataria, LA. My home is
elevated roughly about 14 feet off of the water level. So this one
is really not looking good. We are about 35 miles inland from the
coast, but their is not much land to knock the surge down.
I ask that you keep my
family, friends, and everyone else that will be effected by this
monster in your prayers.
He are the phone
numbers that you can try if you need to reach us.
