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.
