OPEN BOATS DAILY FOR AUGUST
We are finally getting some relief from the daily rain and thunderstorms down here and Lafitte and the fishing is good. The redfish are still in the main lakes as water temps in the ponds remain too high. They will remain in the lakes until the weather begins to cool this fall. Here are a couple recent reports from this past week.
CURT SHAEFFER’S TRIP
This past Thursday Capt Mike Kennair and myself had the pleasure of guiding 2 boats for first time customer Mr Curt Shaeffer and his family. This group is from the state of Minnesota and wanted to do some redfishing while visiting New Orleans.
Capt Mikey found the right pocket of fish early Thursday morning and caught 13 nice reds on spoons the first hour. He caught a fish here and there to finish their limit and added 4 nice drum to the box using shrimp under corks. The three young men on his boat had a great day on the water for sure!
I had Mr Curt, Ms Megan, and Curt’s son on my boat and we ended the day with 17 redfish and a sheepshead for our efforts. We saw and were close to several schools of fish but they were not willing to play for us and weren’t interested in gold spoons or soft plastics. We headed to the marshes and caught most of our fish on fresh shrimp under corks. All on board had fun and enjoyed a day without rain which was a pleasure. Thanks again to Curt and all on the trip for supporting our service and for a great day on the Louisiana marsh. We look forward to their return!
On Saturday we had the pleasure of guiding 4 boats for Mr Barry Davis and his brother Steve with Advanced Plumbing located around Birmingham Alabama. The redfish were hungry for us on this day and all boats caught a bunch of fish using everything from gold spoons to jigheads tipped with shrimp on the bottom. The guys were worn out from working 7 days a week and were in need of a break. A fishing trip was in order and I’m sure everyone left Lafitte renewed and ready to get at it again when they got home. A bunch of great eating redfish will be enjoyed at home by these guys as well. That is always a nice bonus. Many thanks again to Mr Barry and Mr Steve for supporting our service and for their return business. We can’t wait till the next one!
