Cypromort Pt.

Drove out to Cypromort Pt. today (Friday-Dec. 9th) and only saw 2 kiaks in the water, one in Shark Bayou and the other in The Cove.  They were too far away for me to see if they were catching.  Water looked ruff and dirty.  No PU’s with empty trailers @ Quantana Landing

Fishing Delacroix

Went Wednesday not the best of day’s to try just after the front. But the wind laid down so a friend and i went to give it a try. We launched out of Sweet Water my regular place when going to try Delacroix. When we launched one of the guy’s there told us a another boat just came in with their limit already it was a little after 8-am he said they were in Lake Robin.  Well I’m not sure where the guy went or if he had a limit or not but we tried to no avail. we ran to almost all the corners and sides of the lake without even a nibble.  Which completely changed my game plan for the day ended up trying some of the islands south of lake Couquille for red’s again no bites.  I’m thinking i just been had, fishermen never lie right ? Ran back across Bayou Terre Bouefs  in to the lake Campo area made our way back towards 4 horse stopping here and there nothing yet. Finally stopped in Little 4  and picked a few keepers and throwbacks at least it was something. Getting a little tired decided to start our way back to launch stopping along the way but no other taker’s. Made one more stop in shrimp lagoon in hopes of a red or two. But by then the water was to low for me to get where i needed to get. Although while trying to get in to the marsh i did pick a 14″ bass before giving in to the low water. Called it a day and headed for the launch fun trip with my friend Homer an avid fishermen.
Oh yeah as usual we used plastic’s only !
Our reward for the day
9 decent Trout
1 bass 14″
1 great time.
Gary Fishaholic out but never down !

LOTS OF OPENINGS FOR DECEMBER AND THE CATCHING IS GREAT!

We are enjoying some great catches of trout and reds so far for the month of December. The mild weather in November has kept the trout feeding and limts or near limits are the norm for us in Lafitte. The redfish have actually been biting better behind the fronts when the weather has been colder. The trout turn back on when the temps moderate behind these fronts. I’m sure this will be the case in a few days after the blast we are experiencing right now.

WE HAVE LOTS OF OPENINGS THIS MONTH AND WE CAN EASILY ACCOMMODATE LAST MINUTE REQUESTS FOR TRIPS WHEN THE WEATHER IS NICE. IT’S A PRETTY SURE BET FOR A GREAT DAY ON THE WATER ON THE NICE DAYS IN DECEMBER SO DON’T MISS OUT!! CHECK OUT SOME OF THE PICTURES OF THE LAST FEW DAYS!!

WE HAVE SEVERAL GUIDES READY TO GO AND NICE LODGING AVAILABLE, ALL AT AFFORDABLE PRICES. ALL OF OUR BOATS ARE FULLY EQUIPPED 23 TO 25 FT CENTER CONSOLE BAY BOATS THAT INCLUDE POWER POLES FOR MORE EFFICIENT BOAT POSITION. WE USE QUALITY SPINNING AND CASTING REELS MOUNTED ON AWESOME TFO INSHORE RODS LOADED WITH POWER PRO BRAIDED LINE. THE ORIGINAL H&H SOFT PLASTICS AND GOLD SPOONS ARE STANDARD LURES ON OUR COMBOS AND WE PROVIDE MARKET SHRIMP WHEN IT IS NECESSARY.

Used a BABY DUCK to catch a RED FISH!!!

Yes, we finally caught a red fish on a BABY DUCK!!! We have been waiting weeks for the right weather, conditions and crew to get a red fish to hit one of these little ducks. Its been tough to get people to fish with a fake baby duck, when reds are hitting shrimp, minnows and soft plastics so easily.  I have had a few fish roll on them a couple of times in the past 2 months, but they would never commit. The only thing I have caught on duck thus far, was a very curious garden snake(catch n release). We have caught several on a fake mouse, but this duck is much more challenging.
The "Suicide Duck" is made by Savage Gear, it is about the coolest thing you have ever seen. The ducks feet actually spin like propellers on the retrieve, making it some what of a top water buzz bait. The bait won "Best New Hard Bait" at ICAST 2016. Mike Bennett with Okuma/Savage Gear was nice enough to send me a couple, when they first came out.  I put the duck on one of my Okuma Inspira 40 spinning reels. The bigger 40 class spinner has a faster retrieve, and sprays way more water when his feet get to flappin. If you wanna see the duck in action, check out this video from the designer https://m.youtube./watch?v=EtOGeiTas8I . It was originally designed to catch big muskie, pike and trophy bass.
Enter Mike Marshall from Jackson, MS. My man Mike is always looking for a new crazy adventure. He has fished with Shore Thing Charters the last two Halloweens, and was nice enough to wear his Halloween costume both years! Well, Mike wanted to get his first red fish on the fly. We were able to get him over to the LA Marsh on a gorgeous day in between the cold fronts. The cloud cover for most of the day made for some tricky sight casting. We did get about half an hour of sunshine and that was all we needed. Once we could see several more yards away from the bank, it was a piece of cake for Mike. We had a pack of about 10 slot reds swim right in front of the boat. Mike put his white and chartreuse Lefty's Deceiver  directly in the path of the school of fish. We got to watch the lead fish inhale the fly! Mike took a few pictures with his red, and then put his fly rod away. After that fish was scratched off the bucket list, he wanted some fish to eat. We put some live minnows, tight lined on the jig heads and put a hurtin on the slot reds.
We had put several in the box and the reds were steadily smashing bait along the banks. We were watching one fish crushing bait along one shore line, and decided to put the duck after it. The red was feeding like mad, and we had to spin the boat around to cross a small pond, to get to it. After about the 3rd of 4th explosion, we were in casting distance of the fish. The little ducky landed just a few inches off the bank. One or two kicks from his little feet, and it was too much the red fish. The red literally inhaled the duck and we were FINALLY able to say we caught a red fish on a DUCK!!!
