CAPT. KERRY AUDIBERT-OUGHT TO BE FISHING CHARTERS LLC.

GOOD DAY AT THE OFFICE….

I had the pleasure of guiding one of my regulars, Michael Branighan with Merrill Lynch.  He brought along two of his clients, Hal and Warren who have also fished with me multiple times.  We headed out to the edges of the bay and were fortunate to find some clean water.  Got on a couple of good trout bites and ended the day with 55 pretty trout a few heads and 1 red.  Fun time as always and we’ll see you next month Mike!

All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green and Black Omen Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on Campo’s Live Shrimp under corks.

August Inshore Fishing Report (Dularge)

For the past month we have seen the trout bite decline much earlier than it did in the previous few years. Normally we are catching good numbers of trout into mid August but this year has been unpredictable. The good days of catching limits of trout ended in late July with the salinity being extremely low all over the coast. Some days we had perfect conditions of great weather and pristine water but the fish were simply not around. In early August while bull red fishing I witnessed on multiple occasions small trout feeding on shrimp way inshore. That tells me that the migration has begun early so if all things go correctly we should see an early fall trout appearance. While the trout where ghosts we made up for it by catching bull reds and drum for most of the month of August. The big reds were feeding heavily in the deep holes and the puppy drum were right behind them looking for scraps. Most trips we had our limit of bull reds and 8-12 puppy drum. Customers who were not sold on eating black drum and bull reds have all recently changed their minds after watching me carefully clean their catch back at the dock. On the big reds, I am using the Hoss Filet Knife and removing the skin from the meat. Most folks are sold on cooking big reds on the half shell but if you don’t remove 100% of the red meat you will not enjoy it on the grill. I do the black drum the same way since we are keeping them 25″ or less. After removing the skin I am using a razor sharp 8″ Dexter Russell boning knife to remove all bones and red meat from the filets. It takes much longer on the table but in the end you are left with nothing but tender white meat.

Usually by this time we are experiencing a great slot red bite in our end of the summer holes of 20-30′ of water. Looking back at last years books, we were catching limits of slot reds on cracked crab by this time last year. We have yet to find them stacked up but it should happen any day now. I really believe this has been a strange year for fishing so who knows if they will even show up.

Saturday 8-29-16 I had 6 boats out with two different bachelor party groups. Most boats stayed with the bull reds and drum and a few went off to throw spoons in the marsh. Only one boat returned with a limit of slot reds but everyone caught fish and both parties had great outings.

Got up Saturday morning and checked the radar on the phone and it didn’t look good. Sat around the camp and ate a little breakfast and saw a window of opportunity. We don’t really watch the weather we just wake up and plan our trip then. We ran to our regular summer spots around Four Bayou and Bay Long. Weather wasn’t bad and we picked up a few specks close to the gulf and some reds on the shore. Phone service isn’t too good out there and was wondering where my nephews were because I let them take my boat. They know what they are doing because I taught them everything I know which isn’t necessarily a good thing. By the time we got through on the phone they just about had their limit at the gulf in Bay Long on the falling tide. Nothing big but keepers. Fishing in my boat and catching more than me. Ah yes grasshopper I taught you well. We had 21 trout and 7 reds and they had 71 trout all caught on chartreuse beetles under a popping cork and the reds on same with shrimp. Also did battle with a few bull reds. Nice day and got rough on the way in but we beat the rain. Did a little partying at the bus canal rodeo with the girls that afternoon and shut it down around midnight Saturday after running back to Myrtle Grove from Lafitte. Four more days until next weekend. Can’t wait.

Good rainy day fishing

Went yesterday although the weather really wasn't that bad but you couldn't really tell either. It was a toss up on whether go out further from the launch or not because it appeared it was going to get worse than it really did or was. We elected to put the top up and it was just in time the wind picked up a little harder and rain came in but we were able to run back to the launch before it hit us. We sat or stood in the boat and waited to see if it was going to stop which it did but not for long. Like I said it never got any worse but it was a light rain sprinkle the whole time, we went back to the Graveyard 3 minutes from the launch to see if we could stop this trip from being a shutout. Good thing we made another drift in the back and Ralph caught a 24" red which we kept since we didn't have anything else a little further down the bank and I hooked up with a bull 32" which I finally got in the boat but it was to big to keep so I took a pic and released him back in the water .   Still another good day on the water with my Friend Ralph it's been a while at least 6 weeks maybe longer since our last trip. So we had a lot to catch up on while fishing and the weather really wasn't that bad we just didn't know that was how it was going to stay. We could have gone further out but didn't better safe than sorry is what we thought.   Have fun and enjoy every day God gives us.   Good luck to all on your next trip !
