A lot of fellow fisherperson ask, when do you think they will start back up, so with that in mind took a look see survey of me fishing diary to see if me could come up with a solid answer.
Mid May, June, July & August has always been slow for Oneofthepack, with a slight sight at the end of the tunnel in September, but when October comes around, is when the catching starts for us, and it will last all the way into middle of May.
Diary for past 32 years of fishing:
Aug Sept. Oct. Nov Dec Jan Feb March April
Average trip per year 2.22 3.16 5.31
Total fish/32 Yr. 957 1,913 6,978 14,910 9,988 4,692 6,421 6,632 6,456
Average fish per year 29.91 59.78 218.06
Average fish per trip 13.48 18.94 41.05
Total fish March
In past years November, December, January, February where the solid months, but lately (due to siphon and other factors) catching has been pushed back some to where the better months have been March, April, and middle of May. When we get to middle May it is like the valve / flow for Silverwodners is shut-off, catching just shuts off.
Also me notice the bigger Silverwonders are out and about in April & May, we caught some really nice 16-18” Silverwonders, during that period, and the quantity of them were also up in the numbers.
Last couple of years November through March zone 1 & 2 , (on our map set attach) that we fish has been off, me attribute that to the siphon, and river water from Mardi grass pass dumping river water into Pointe A La Hatche area which on an incoming tide makes its way into Oak River & North South pipeline area.
Siphon & river water last year required that me expand me comfort zone, and go out and fish more of zone 1, and even create a zone 5 to fish. In the process of doing this, we found some solid action with Silverwodners. Now the question is what zone to fish next year, zone 2 & 3 has always produced for us, but from what we learned last year, zone 1 and 5 deserves some attention, especially if conditions (i.e. river water) makes its way into zone 1 & 2.
Now is the time to plan our strategy for the upcoming fall season of fishing, & catching. Based on our experience and as a suggestion, you might want to expand your comfort zone. Get out and learn the paths / direction to new fishing areas to try this fall, and add them to your repertoire of hot spots to pursue.
Also suggest you start a diary of ALL your trips, good ones (there are no bad trips) great ones, and excellent ones so you can have a history of your endeavors to fall back on / review to help you make informed decision the future, on the “ WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, & HOW” to fishing & catching.
• Who was involved?
• What happened?
• When did it take place?
• Where did it take place?
• Why did that happen?
• How did it happen?
Getting late time to go to bed, hope to see all you fisherpersons out and about, until then:
