The Easy Rider can change the weather if we even say the word “fishing”. As per OOTP – “You have to go to know”. I locked into fishing last Saturday, weather or not!!!!. When I pulled into the Lake Catherine Island Marina to pull the Easy Rider out of it’s shed the wind was not what we wanted – North/northwest/north northwest, sometimes calm right before the afternoon squall. My first mate Dennis (aka The Big D) and I didn’t care. The Island Marina had some nice live shrimp (we got some of the last). Launched the boat without untying the bow line which became so bound up I had to cut it. After that everything was perfect. Heading for the south end of the bridges was a nice ride in the Twin Vee. We hoped to find calm water but no such luck. The Big D immediately went up 3 to 0 on me but that’s fishing. As the wind picked up we headed for the Lake P shoreline where the rocks start just past Irish Bayou. Once again the Big D was up on me!!! Finally, seeing the weather building to the north and west we headed back to Lake Catherine in 3 footers (nice to have a catamaran). We ended up (last stop) at the lee shore of Lake Catherine just inside of the Rigolets and found some action. Caught quite a few reds (all 13-15), one 16′, and a nice freshwater cat. With the weather closing in we headed in to put the Easy Rider back in it’s shed. As you can tell by the post there wasn’t a lot of fish caught but it was a GREAT day on the water with my best buddy. By the way I finally put a few in the boat and have to say those small reds were hitting the live shrimp incredibly hard. The boat picking up ahead of us backed their trailer in and a board floated off – We loaned them a hammer and some roofing nailing destined for the carpet on our trailer and got them out of the water – We were quicker than Sea Tow. Can’t wait to do it again, again, again.
