    Fishing Magician Charters

    We find them and you catch them!

    Today I had the pleasure of fishing with my cousin Berry Nunez, his two nephews Chris and Bryan, and his good friend Sam. It was great to see Berry today I haven’t seen him in a few years. We both grew up fishing and trapping with your Dads and Grand paws.

    Today we fished the Biloxi Marsh catching 14 reds, and 20 speckled trout and 2 black drum.

    All fish was caught 2′ under a popping cork using live shrimp from B.S.M. Campo‘s has fuel but just don’t have their bait boxes ready yet. But, it shouldn’t be too long till Campo’s is back to normal. They are working very hard to get everything up and running like before.

    Delacroix Bound with Mike Lane & Crew

    TEAM JO-JO…………………….. Big Mike had called and was looking to make a trip, it took a couple of 3 weeks to get one plan, and on a day when we thought we would have good conditions to fish, and catch. So, Big Norm, Big Mike and Oneofthepack were out and about down in our Disney World known as Delacroix Island, looking to find a few Silverwodners that wanted to come out and play, and play we did.   SIGNS:  
    • Me got me first ever hearing aids Tuesday, now me know all what me been missing in the past, and me think me like the past.
    • Tried to fish canal behind house, no luck, water looked a little dirty, me threw the cast net caught minnows, shiners, shrimp, cat fish, and turtles, and me think when the water clears up me might be able to find some perches and bass.
    • Not to good a night sleep 3 hours, me psyched up to be fishing with Big Mike of rodenreel.com fame and to meet his friend Big Norm.
    • We all met up at Team Jo-Jo official meeting place, Waffle House in Chalmette for 5:00 AM sharp.
    • Had a good breakfast, load all our gear in Big Norm Jeep, and we off to the promise land in search of the elusive Silverwonders.
    • Passed on McDonnell
    • Passed on Last stop food store
    • Check point Abel, water down at junction
    • Check point Bravo, slight water movement at Reggio Canal
    • Gave Big Norm the sign to look out for bight orange / red triangle sign, and a bright green rectangular sing, that be where the By Flat Sr sleep / live, make a right turn park perpendicular to trailer, do not run into trailer, REPEAT do not run into trailer.
    • Bay Flat Sr looked somewhat perplexed to see us, loaded our gear in very quickly.
    • Yamaha Dream Machine fired up with one crank, she ready for a day of fishing
    • Motored over to Lionel (me stopped by and told Lionel hi) for some go juice, and ice, NO BAIT, me tell crew, today we fish like me like to fish.
    • Parking lot empty, not a good sign
    • As we motored to Bayou Gently, me shouted out the words / command, cut everything of you guys lines, everything, gave them some ¼ oz. round white jig heads w/gold hook for them to tie on their lines. Me said no swivels, snaps, etc., tie directly to your line. Gave them each a Matrix Shad Lemon Drop, and 3” H&H purple beetle to tie on to their lines. Very efficient crew they got all that done before me make the turn down Bayou Gently.
    • Now the hard part, no previous Intel, only thing me had was from a trip week plus ago, where to start, where to go, after running the actual (field) conditions through me head, we off to spot # 18 C to start our journey for the day.
      CONDITIONS:  
    • Perfect
    • W.N.W wind 8-10 mph steady all day
    • Sunny & clear
    • Cool, mild, warm temps, kept jump suite on all day, started to take it off when we got out of the wind, but was glad me did not cause running around it was still a little cool.
    • Water level down 13”
    • Water temp cool
    • Tide tail end of a falling tie, it never stopped falling and never did come in, when we left Noon it was still falling a very little
    • Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 3 to a 3 plus, best looking water at Orange Bayou & Oak River
    • Only saw one other fishing boat all day, and only 2 commercial boats
      TECHNIQUE / STRATEGY:  
    • Be safe (almost)
    • Have fun (We did)
    • Expose Big Mike & Big Norm to the Oak River Troll, give them a crash class on same
    • Take them on our Milk Run tour through zone 1 & 2 of Team Jo-Jo’s fishing map / areas
    • If me every wanted to catch a few fish today was the day. Last time out with Big Mike (he in another boat) filming, (re: how to do the Oak River Toll) Oneofthepack & crew, his best shot of the trip was when he announced now we have the backofhtepack as me turned away from the camera, we did not catch much, and they had to leave due to the rain, but that even we nailed them. Me just wanted the crew today to have a good time, not a great time, but just a good time.
    • Share / experience Delacroix marsh with new and old friends
    • Find a spot # with the five fundamentals / criteria of catching:
    1. Wind at your back: (Wind a little problem today, we fished a couple of spots with it at our back but them far and in-between. But for the most part the wind assisted us with the Oak River Troll (ORT) technique, tide and wind going in same direction perfect for (ORT).)
    2. Moving water: (Falling all day, had some real nice current lines to fish, current lines where all over Oak River cuts, just needed to find one holding fish.)
    3. Water Clarity: (Looked OK, a clarity of 3, surface (3”0 down) was clear, and clean, but after that you lost the lure in the dark brown looking water. Water was very fishable.)
    4. Holding fish: (WE found 3 plus spots holding fish, we even had 3 on at one time, and a couple with 2 on at the same time, Silverwonders seem to be out and about, stacked up, but you hit some and they turn off quickly.)
    5. Patients: ( Not needed today, 3rd cast nice little red, action was fairly steady today, and the action was evenly shared, all except for one, me don’t want to mention any names, but his initials are Mike Lake)
    • Oak River Troll (20)t
    • Anchor up cast & retrieve, slow retrieve along the bottom with little twitch every now and tend. Big Norm was just reeling in against the current when hit a little mother load of Silverwodners. (10)t
    • Corks, did not try
      LURE DU JOUR:  
    • Hands down 3” H&H purple beetle, matched up with H&H ¼ oz. round white head with gold hook, caught all but 3 fish.
    • Matrix Shad Lemon Drop caught 3t, it too with H&H ¼ oz. round white head with gold hook.
      AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBESR ON THE MAP FISHED:   Spot # 18C, D, E, (3)T, 61 C (6) T, 61B, 61A, 60, 20 (8)T, 21, 22, 23, 20 (9)T, 17 (4)T, 2A, stopped fishing at noon, turned the Bay Flat Sr north for a long, bumpy ride back to the slip.   OUR REWARD:  
    • Lived to fish another day
    • (30) (NMR) Silverwodners (1) throw back
    • (3) (NMR) missed at boat
    • (1) Red throw back
    • (1) Puppy Drum
    • (1) Crab
    • (2) Oysters
    • (4) Popped lines bottom
    • (1) Stick
    • (1.5) Bushel of grass
    • (3 to 4) tangled lines (see picture) this how Big Mike & Big Norm spent the day, in-between catching Silverwodners.
    • We had another (re: aka Big Ronnie, aka Wildman, aka Dago) roller on board, Big Norm doing (ORT) (sitting (he not to stable in boat) on his ice chest) felt the tap, set the hook, reeled the Silverwonder in, lifted up to get it in the boat, lost balance, sat back down on ice chest, leaning back, ice chest rolled over, and he want down between the ice chest and the Bay Flat Sir gunnel. He main concern was he lost the Silverwonder, once he got pass that he felt the pain. But he got back up and got back to doing the (ORT) that is when he caught the biggest Silverwonder of the day 3 plus# was she.
    • Big Norm was in pain the rest of the day, we offered to go in, but he wanted to kept fishing cause we were in some (NMR’s) at the time. me hope all is well soon, as we parted we agreed to set up another trip down the road to fish Lake P he wants to see how / learn Team Jo-Jo’s technique for the Lake Troll with ¾ oz. jig heads and Matrix Shad Lemon Drops, me tell him it is all about the boat speed, distance of line out, and boat distance from trestles.
    • Me left hearing aids home, so did the other two, so all we did was yell at each other all day, and if we could not hear we would just smile and shake our heads. Big Mike says me could be asking you guys anything ($ %#^&*^%$##) and you guys would agree to that, but me head that one.
    • We talking about the clarity of the water, as we fishing and catching Big Mike says the water don’t look bad, says me when you catching fish water never looks bad, we both laugh and agree on that.
    • Big Mike and Big Norm ganged up on me. Me had to tell two fishing / trip stories to their each one to keep up. Me think me ran out of stories, because these guys go back a long, long, long way, and they have fished all over the country and in some case over the world. In shore / off shore, blue water, Florida flats, just about everywhere you can image. And when it came to horror stories me gave up, me only had 2-3, me think we made it to volume 3 of 50 with these to fisherpersons experience in this department. Me sure we all may have somewhat embellished a little, but they all were very interesting events / trips/ stories to be told and heard.
    • One of the highlights of the trip was a stop at Rocky & Carols on the way back, we each made a comments on the amount of food, and however we each did a pretty good job of disposing of all of it too.
    • Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.
      FISHERESON OF THE DAY   It was a very competitive day, (that is in the effort of all) but sometimes it takes a little more than effort, and when it came to catching technique / presentation / experience and luck takes over, some of us where little more lucky than others. Me drew first blood (red) and jumped out to a 0-2-7 lead, (do we need to mention who had 0, may be just initials) Anyways Oneofthepack putting on a class on cast & retrieve, me think me got this one in the bag, no problem with this crew that me can see. And me managed to hold me on as the day went along.   As for Big Mike (initials) he was struggling with cast & retrieve and the Oak River Troll, it took him a good while to catch his first fish, and that he did unconsciously, (se picture for big one, and then bigger one) like me always say better to be lucky than good. Big Mike remind me of a golfer, he tried to apply some fuzzy math to the individual totals, last count he had, he had 18 in the boat, do the math, me don’t think it adds up. But in the stories / trips / events / horror stories he wins hand down, none of us came close.   Now we down to Big Norm, he definitely caught the biggest (see picture), me think he caught the most, me now he lost the most, and me definitely know Big Mike never came close to catching up to him, so me think , me know Big Norm fisherperson of the day.     SUGGESTION:   We had to fish for them, it was not a givme day, but the Silverwodners where challenging and are out and about that is why “YOU HAVE GOT TO GO TO KNOW”   PONDER OF THE DAY:   How do you tell when fishing nothing biting, if you don’t catch anything?   Me think me off the water tomorrow, Friday back on with Big Chris (first time fishing w/ Team Jo-Jo) can hardly wait to have to decide where to go, Delacroix or Lake P, until then:   Good Fishing   Team Jo-Jo & Oneofthepack

    The Fishing out of Venice is on fire! We are putting our customers on huge Yellowfin Tuna as close as 20 miles out of the pass! Several options for tuna fishing.  The humps are holding some very big yellowfin as well as blackfin and giant AJs.  On calmer days we are also finding large numbers of yellows at the floaters and drillships offshore.  This time of year live bait is hard to come by some bring plenty of chum and remember those kings make great bait. The wahoo fishing is good at the shelf rigs and especially around the full and new moons.  I'm pulling Russell Lures, X-raps and Bombers. Rig fishing will continue to very good for AJs, grouper and some nice cobia. Plus the State Red Snapper season is open and there a plenty of big snapper in close.  Makes a great way to finish off the day after tuna fishing. Don't miss this incredible action.  Call today to book your trip! Go Long Charters LLC www.golongcharters.com golongcharters@gmail.com (225) 252-5315
