Wanted to possibly fish entire length of Cane and possibly enter the Lake to try for tackle-busting reds but the predicted strong S winds made the Lake pretty much unfishable,at least from a Chapman pirogue!!Did toss Spro frog for a few minutes,few takers but no solid hook ups,switched to Speed Worms and hooked 3 bass,released two and one self-released and I took mini Cajun Sleigh Ride,most likely compliments of big alligator(plenty of big ones in Cane right now).When the beast grabbed Zoom Speed Worm,I could tell it had a toothy mouth and I really was not too interested in fighting this in-identified beast to clearly id him and thankfully,it let go and when I retrieved my lure,the stout Owner EWG hook had significant bend to it!On way back to Cane launch,tossed Speed Worm to base of cypress tree where I suspected nice lunker bass might lurk but was surprised at size of ornery choupique that inhaled worm and I was able to snap pic of big choupique!!Headed East to Main Street in Lacombe,where I saw Lacombe Fire Dept using Bayou Lacombe to flush out their Fire Truck(neat sight).Lots of fishers out there and no one seemed to have any luck,neither did I.Managed to get it lots of aerobic exercise and casting practice.Happy Memorial Day and hope to fish mid-week!!
WINDY DAY ON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER DELTA!
Yesterday we had the pleasure to guide Dave, Barry, Kirby & Allen.
Left out of Delta Marina early with the wind stiff and building. We put in a day of Redfishing beating the banks on the east side of the Mississippi River.
The water was stained very bad as the guys cast live shrimp under popping corks and finished the day with 15 pretty Redfish.
GREAT JOB IN TOUGH CONDITIONS & BIG THANKS TO DAVE, BARRY, KIRBY & ALLEN!

Loveofthepack and Oneofthepack on our way to Metairie rode the Hwy 11 bridge, (as we always do) to check out the conditions. When me looked to the east , and saw the 2 to 2/13 feet waves with white Cps, me knew their could not be many fisherpersons out and about in that rough water.
As we got on the bridge and reached FB 2 to my surprise was a flotilla of boats, counting 21, (they all fishing the west side of the trestles) from FB 2 to north draw, including (6) guide boats between FB 3-5, me like when we see the guide boats, it is a very good sign of what the action may be like.
If you plan on going in the AM, suggest you buy your shrimp early, get in line early, and / or buy them the night before, me have to think it will be a very competitive fishing day over the weekend and Monday.
Be safe, courteous, and mind your manners, treat all as you would like to be treated.
