I got a call late yesterday evening from Capt. Anthony Kyzar asking if I could run a trip, so I did. Not knowing who I would have I made the call to Brad Gavit and made the arrangements for the trip. Never knowing that I had some of the greatest customers of all time. Brad and Connie came down from Alaska to enjoy some of south Louisiana’s best stuff. I thought it only right that I show them the time of their lives fishing. They wanted to try out the bull reds and drum first so off we went to Cocodrie and out to the bay. I was headed to one of my favorite spots but divine intervention came through and I made a stop at one of the first wells I was getting to. Well it was a great stop as reds and drum bit their lines right of the bat. Only problem was the fish would pull lots of drag but not get hooked up. I don’t know if it was 4 or 5 hookups before Connie finally got a red to the boat. After that it was game on as redfish and drum were coming to the boat very quickly, only it was only Connie catching. Brad couldn’t get a bite. Then the luck changed and both were catching almost every cast. We were using sliding cork rigs with dead shrimp. We stayed steady on the fish till 11am and decided that after, red fish, drum, sheepshead, catfish, channel mullet, white trout, and a sting ray that wanted to finish the slam with a speckled trout. I took off and make it to the only place I know out in the bay that had trout at this time of year. I had Brad and Connie start of with rattle shrimp and I started tossing that same no name bait I had last week. Right away I caught a trout and then another one. I switched them to this 5″ bait and the trout started to come in slowly. In the beginning of the week I got some new Berkley Power Baits called Rib Shad in 4.5 inch, swamp gas color. All I can say is these baits are huge. I started testing one to see if the trout would hit it. Well they not only hit it they annihilated this bait. I would have never though that the trout would hit such a huge bait. We fished just long enough to catch 15 really nice trout. Using a real slow retrieve. If you are ready to get in on these nice trout give me a call. I would have had more pictures but I lost them in my computer somewhere.
