NICE DAY ON THE WATER..
On Tuesday I had the pleasure of guiding a really nice family out of Nick’s Marina. Jodi Trosclair brought along her mother Ms Geneva, Mr Walter, and her aunt Peggy for a day of redfishing. We headed east of Lafitte to the shallow marshes off the main lakes to get away from the lady fish and hopefully find some reds willing to bite. Before long the fresh shrimp under the popping corks were getting bites and some fish were hitting the ice chest. Some weather was getting close so we ducked under a fish camp to let it pass. We returned to fishing and picked up a few more reds before more storms approached forcing us under another fish camp. We had a small window to make it back to Lafitte so we headed west and fortunately beat the rain and made it in without getting soaked.
All in all it was a very good day on the water with all on board catching fish and a good time was had by all. The final tally was 21 redfish, 2 sheepshead, and one puppy drum, pretty good for a day interrupted by rain a couple different times.
Many thanks again to Jodi, Ms Geneva, Mr Walter, and Ms Peggy for a fun day on the water spent with good people. I look forward to their next scheduled trip in November. Hopefully we can catch a bunch of trout and some reds to go with them.
