OPENINGS FOR DECEMBER! The weather has finally gotten more seasonal down here in Lafitte. It actually feels like it should for December. Cold weather turns the redfish on and makes them even more hungry. The trout fishing should improve as well since the shrimp will move out with the colder water temps. The silver wonders will be found more stacked up where clear water and some bait is present. They will be easier to catch with less food swimming around. Capt Beau Weber and myself had the pleasure of guiding a good group of guys from Mississippi on a recent trip. Mr Jerry Horne brought along his son and 4 other friends, mostly law enforcement buddies, to do some fishing. It turned out to be a redfish day as the hard fighters were biting well for us. The trout were scattered on this day but both boats scraped up a mess to go along with limits of nice reds. Thanks again to Mr Jerry and all on the trip for a great day on the water spent with good people. We look forward to their return! I had the pleasure of guiding my good friends Dwight and Mary Johnston and Ben and Barbara Brown this past Monday. On this day the trout were the more willing participants. The crew put a nice limit of trout on ice and a couple reds to fill the box making a great catch. Thanks so much again to the Johnstons and the Browns for a fun day on the water spent with good friends. Can’t wait till next time! On Both days fresh shrimp and H&H Beetles and Capt Lane’s Ghost Minnows under popping corks did the damage on the fish.

NICE DAY ON THE WATER Yesterday I had the pleasure of guiding good friend and customer Mr Butch Syrdal, his son Scott, son in law Jamie, and granddaughters Emma and Katie. This was the first official fishing trip for the girls but it was obvious that they had been practicing their fishing skills. We got lucky early and found a good school of reds that were hungry and eating the fresh shrimp under popping corks. The girls were boating fish left and right and did a great job handling the hard fighting reds. They didn’t quit until number 25 was resting in the cooler. Two nice puppy drum and 2 sheepshead joined the party as well, falling for the shrimp. We then focused on trout, trying different areas with Ghost minnows and H&H chartreuse beetles under the corks instead of shrimp. It was slow for us as the trout were not bunched up although things looked right to catch a bunch. We put 18 keeper trout on ice before calling it a day with the box pretty much full. Many thanks to Mr Butch, Scott, Jamie, Emma, and Katie for a great day on the water spent with good friends. I look forward to the next trip with this gang!

A MONTH BEHIND The fishing is a month late for us down here in Lafitte. We have had the warmest November on record in our area and it feels like the first of November although we are about to begin December. Basically, things are just now getting right for some awesome catches. Today was no exception. Capt Beau Weber and myself had the pleasure of guiding 2 boats for good friend and customer Mr Roy Koch who brought along Mrs Laura, his son, and buddies Paul and Mr Tim. The fishing was very good on this day as Capt Beau’s crew ended the day with 75 trout and 7 reds. I had Mr Roy, Mrs Laura, and Paul on my boat and we filled the box with 74 trout and 20 reds. Thanks again to Mr Roy and all on the trip for a great day on the water spent with good friends. We look forward to next time! THE WARM NOVEMBER HAS THE PEAK OF THE FALL FISHING BEGINNING RIGHT NOW IN LAFITTE. WE HAVE LOTS OF OPENINGS FOR DECEMBER AND IT MAY BE THE BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR!

GREAT WEATHER AND FISHING CONTINUES We are still at it down here in Lafitte, enjoying some great days on the water for late November. The great year of redfishing is still going strong for us and the speckled trout are starting to bunch up as the weather gets more seasonal. The fishing should remain excellent for the rest of the year and we have lots of openings for December so give us a call and treat yourself to a charter with Lafitte’s hardest working and most professional fishing team. We offer gift certificates that make an awesome Christmas gift for that special fisherperson, just a phone call is all it takes! The reds are staying shallow and are in the marsh for the most part. Fresh shrimp under popping corks is definitely working but Capt Lane’s Mad Mullets in black and chartreuse tightlined on 1/4 oz jigheads is working as well. The shrimp are exiting the area as they normally do this time of year and the reds are turning to baitfish for their replacement so the Mad Mullets are fooling the hard fighters. The specks are gathering in the lakes east and west of Lafitte where clean water and bait is present. Grassy areas are good as the water is filtered clear and the bait has a place to hide. Fewer shrimp is also a good thing for the trout who get less picky with less food swimming around. Capt Lane’s Ghost Minnows under popping corks are doing the trick on the silver wonders. I am including pictures from some recent trips so please enjoy!   IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BOOK A TRIP WITH LAFITTE’S HARDEST WORKING, MOST PROFESSIONAL FISHING TEAM, GIVE US A CALL AT 504-689-2006 OR SEND AN EMAIL TO captainphil02@cox.net to GET YOUR CHARTER ON THE BOOKS.

LAFITTE REPORT Yesterday I had the pleasure of guiding good friends Beau and Barbara Scales from the state of Mississippi. We fished together 4 years ago and had a good trip so hopes were high for another one. A cold front was approaching and the fish were hungry ahead of it, especially the reds. We found a windy pocket that was teeming with the hard fighters and number 15 hit the ice at 7:30. Mrs Barbara and Mr Beau played catch and release for a while and then we tried for trout picking up 14. The specks were scattered and not very active which was odd with the front coming in. They are usually feeding ahead of the colder weather but on this day the redfish were the star of the trip. It does not get any better as far as catching reds in the marsh than what yesterday brought. Many thanks again to Mr Beau and Mrs Barbara for an outstanding day on the water spent with good friends. I look forward to their return! WE HAVE LOTS OF OPENINGS NOW AND ESPECIALLY FOR DECEMBER.

GREAT FALL CONTINUES… MR JOHN HEBERER’S TRIP We had the pleasure of guiding 4 boats for good friend and customer Mr John Heberer and several of his buddies on a recent trip. This crew is from the St Louis area and they all love to fish. Actually Mr John has brought down 2 groups this fall, one in October and one this month. As usual for late October and November the fishing for trout and reds was very good for the guys, especially if the weather cooperated. I had the pleasure of guiding Mr John all 3 days on the latter trip and we were blessed with good fishing and fellowship all 3 days. I am including pictures from the November trip in this report. We want to say a special thank you to Mr John and ALL the guys on the trips for what they have done for our service this year and past ones. We are already looking forward to next year!

This past week I had the pleasure of guiding 2 nice gentlemen from the state of Oklahoma, Mr Terry Gray and his buddy Mr Ron. We started the day in search of trout and caught a mess then went in search of redfish. The latter plan proved to be more productive as the reds seemed to be more willing to play on this day. We fished the marshes east of Lafitte to add a nice limit of redfish to the box along with some bonus puppy drum and a nice sheep. Fresh shrimp under popping corks did the damage on the hard fighters and Capt Lane’s Ghost Minnows fooled the trout for us. Many thanks to Mr Terry and Mr Ron for an enjoyable day on the water spent with new friends. We hope to see these guys again soon!

NICE DAY ON THE WATER This past Thursday I had the pleasure of guiding good friends David and Denise Klausner who were in the city for a Saints game and for Seafood Fest. I have had the pleasure of having David and Denise on my boat for several years. The guys normally release all of the fish they catch and this trip was no exception though they didn’t mind me keeping a few to be enjoyed at home. We enjoyed great weather and steady fishing for redfish and black drum which is the usual targeted species. A bunch of good fish were landed and released to fight another day which can be a good thing for a change. A great time was had by all on board and the trip could not have gone better. Many thanks again to David and Denise for their return business and for a great day on the water spent with good friends. I look forward to next time!

I know it is my favorite time to wet a line.

The guys enjoyed 2 good days on the water and caught a bunch of redfish with some trout thrown in.

We look forward to next year already! Capt Lane Zimmer and I guided 2 boats for good friend and customer Kenny Bolline this past Wednesday and Thursday and had great trips. I had Kenny, his dad Dr Steve, and Dr Dennis on my boat. The trout were thick for the guys from Texas but some redfish joined the party as well.
