COUPLE NICE DAYS ON THE WATER…
The wind was blowing hard over the weekend but we managed to get our trips in and catch some fish, mainly reds.
On Friday I had the pleasure of guiding good friends and customers Dr. John Everett and his buddy Mr David Martin from the Jackson, Tn area. We headed east that morning to look at different scenery but I must admit it wasn’t a good move. We had 7 or so reds in the box as lunch time approached so it was time to head to the west where the numbers of fish had been better. We fished a long stretch of broken marsh throwing fresh shrimp under popping corks and boated 4 reds until finding a grass bed that was a little more productive. H&H Cocahoes rigged on weedless jigs was the ticket to finishing off a limit of redfish for the boat. Thanks to Dr John and Mr David for their return business and for an enjoyable day on the water spent with good friends. We look forward to their return!
On Saturday I had the pleasure of guiding Mr Bert Guillory and his wife Blanche who live here locally. The wind was howling pretty good out of the north as we left Nick’s Marina so we headed to protected pockets on the north side of the lakes west of Lafitte. The fish were hard headed due to the post frontal conditions and the high barometer but we caught one here and there. Hanging in there paid off as the bite was late as is normally the case on post frontal days. I think it takes a while for the fish to adjust to the changing barometric pressure. At the end of the day a nice limit of reds were on ice along with some bonus puppy drum. A great catch for a tough day for sure. Thanks again to Mr Bert and Ms Blanche for a great trip and we look forward to next time!
