In response to Oneofthepack

Thanks for the report Stanley, Ralph and I had a very nice boat ride yesterday. As we didn't catch a fish made a big circle from launch to Grand lake to the pencil made all the regular stops along the way. Didn't see but 5 boats all day we tried the oak river troll in Oak river had one bite but that was it. Saw plenty of fish on the fish finder but I think it may have been lieing. Proceeded on to the dbl pipeline to Lake John and the ponds to the north again making all the regular stops and try's but still no fish. The boat ran fine the trolling motor ran fine no problems with Ralph's boat at all today this was a good thing. We were bundled up so didn't even get that cold. Just couldn't find any fish willing to take the ride with us.

We still had a good time on the water got to catch up on family news. Ralph's Step son's uncle died the day before of heart attack after going to the Hospital. He was 68 I think did all the right thing's as to take care of his self but you never know. So always be kind to others and try to enjoy the time you have here you never know when your time is up.

Even though we didn't catch any fish we had a good time out on the water doing what we love doing. What did you you do yesterday?

Harahan/Picayune, LA USA

Just wanted to thank Oneofthepack again
for the gracious invite aboard the Bay
Flat Sr. Learned alot from a true
sportsman and even got some great tips
on new plumbing technology to invest
into the company.. I have to say, i was
really impressed to see the man tell me
exactly when the bite would begin..
Called it 3 hrs in advance almost to the
minute.. Cant wait till im called to be
the bay flats power pole once again..
After the departue & a quick trip to
Chag's, got to see the my beautiful best
friend dialed in and sticking arrows in
the red dot with her new compound. Was
really impressed as for being her first
time ever shooting a bow. Happy birthday
love. Big thanks to Oneofthepack and the
archery guys at Chag's..

Slidell, LA USA

               TEAM JO-JO

Big Randy, (rodnreel.com poster) was
crew board Bay Flat Sr today, he and
Oneofthepack were out and about down in
our Disney World known as Delacroix
Island in search of the VERY elusive
Silverwonders.

SIGNS:

• Swap meeting places met at
Waffle House in Oak Harbor, instead of
Chalmette
• No boats on Hwy
• No boats in gas stations
• No wildlife sightings along Hwy
11
• Know you fisherpersons heard
the saying, “Hell has no fury than a
women scorned” well me think this
applies to the Bay Flat Sr Suzuki
engine, she not scorned, but when she
runs dry of go juice, there is a lot of
fury around for everybody. I thought I
would never get her started today in
Oak River, was reaching for the cell
phone to call SeaTow, finally got he
started and we were on our way
• Suzuki had another problem
power trim went our I could go down but
not up, by the time we pounded our way
across Grand Lake and got back to the
slip, power trim back working up or
down.
• Trip was a time limit trip, had
to be back early to go to dinner, this
not good, don’t like the pressure, like
open ended trips.

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• N.N.E. wind 18-20 mph steady
all morning
• Partly cloudy to clear
• Sunny and cold, cold, cold
• Water temp 46F
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7
was a 3 minus, you could see the lure
down about 2-3’, but is was looking
through sand.
• Tide slack then fell, then
around 11:40 slowed down, me think it
had about another hour before it would
turn around and came in.
• Not many boats out and about

TECHNIQUE:

• Oak River Troll
• Tight line
• Corks
• Cast & retrieve
• Bottom, top, middle and all
points in-between
• Fish shoreline
• Deep water Shallow water
• Moving water
• Etc. etc .etc.

LURE DU JOUR:

Matrix Shad Lemon Drop, matched up with
H&H ¼ oz round white head w/gold hook
which is all it took.

ARES / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP
FISHED:

Alligator Pass, # 61A,B,C,61,61A (1)t,
stopped fishing at 11:55 AM

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (1) Silverwonders
• (1) missed at Bay Flat Sr
• (1) hit
• (1) shoreline
• (1) Crab trap
• (1/4) bushel of grass
• Great morning on the water
w/new friend and fellow plumber, we
built a few projects as we waited for
the Silverwonders to turn on.
• Best fishing trip of my life,
until the next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

• Big Randy was in the run from
the first cast till the last cast, or
should we say first troll to the last
troll. He was not concern by the lack
of action, kept trying all techniques,
and everything  /  lure he had in the
tackle box, It was just not to be this
day.

• Big T-Doc and crew (Big Palo &
Big Adrian) where out and about too,
when they ran into us  (also saw them
at spot # 61, got my Hersey Bar from
Big T-Doc, brought me back to life)
around 11:50 AM they had (1) red.
Suggested to them they anchor where I
was at and wait for that tide to come
in, the Silverwonders are here they
just have lock jaw.

• Oneofthepack caught the one and
only Silverwonders, missed a
Silverwonders,  caught the crab trap,
caught the shoreline, me think
Oneofthepack not fisherperson of the
day either.

• It was a Silverwonders day,
they fisherpersons of the day, they out
smarted the would be best, got to eat,
and survive to fish another day.

SUGGESTIONS:

• Don’t do what we did today
• Get a late start fishing
incoming tide
• Silverwonders will be on fire
tomorrow

PONDER OF THE DAY:

"It is not how abundant nor how
considerable our catch be, but rather
to the sport, and manner in which our
quarry, the noble Silverwonders is
angled."

Off the water still next week, will be
back ASAP!!!!!

Good Fishing

joeynavis

yat city, LA USA

hello friends,

my attempts to recreate the daze of my youth at
the finish of this wonderful waterfowl season
resulted in my making an extended visit to the st
bernard parish hospital putting me out of
commission for a little while, but i am about to
venture forth once again and  would like to ask
any fisherpersons out there if anyone has been
doing any good or if they are hearing about
anyone doing any good in the bayou bievenue
area, an area which i have just started to explore
in the past couple years.  some fresh trout would
be a wonderful addition to the dinner table,
additionally with the upcoming st. joseph's day
and the altars which various individuals and
church's will be having, including blessed seelos
where i will be in attendance, some nice redfish
would certainly be most welcome.  we really do
live in an area where the creator has blessed us
with a bounty beyond compare and i hope to get
on some of those reds and contribute to making
some st. joseph altars worthy of the saints and
ideas to which they are dedicated.  if anyone then
can point me in a direction where i mite have
success in chalmette/violet/new orleans east  
waters it would be greatly appreciated.

        TEAM JO-JO

Tried To entice Big Andrew in making a trip today, but no response, however Big Bud (aka Eastofmrgo) responded to the hint, suggested we go chase the reds in THE PEN, he posted around 8:30 AM. Oneofthepack was hard at work and did not see post until around 10:30 AM, had a few things I needed to get done, and had a lunch date with some co-workers. After we ate lunch called Big Bud from the restaurant, you still feel you want to go, yes says he, this when I explain to him THE PEN would be tough to fish with the NW wind. So we decided to make a run at the 8th wonder of the world , wall out of Bayou Bienvenue. We agreed we would go in Eastofmrgo ‘s NauticStar matched up with a 150 Merc, I was to be at his house for 1;30 PM.

SIGNS:

• Got a lot done at work
• Great lunch
• Made it home in plenty time
• Stopped to look out the back door to see if our ducks where feeding, that is when I saw the BIG BOY, he looked 3 feet tall, and had a 6 foot wing span. The duck where there, but all they had was feathers, this BIG Hawk ate some, had feathers all over the place.
• Big Bud waiting in his FORD transporter, loaded her up and we were on our way
• Made it to Dockside launch at 2:30 PM
• Made it to the wall around 2:47 PM
• Dropped the trolling motor let the fun begin
• Saw a Big black hog along Hwy 90, look like she was going to attack Big Bud’s black truck, maybe she thought it was King Pig and it was time to mate.

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• N.N.W. wind 16 – 18 mph
• Cloudy overcast evening
• Cold, cold, cold
• Tdie slack then started to run into locks towards Bayou Bienvenue
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 7 plus, best looking water I’ve seen in a long time
• Saw one boat coming in
• Saw 1 boat at HW canal
• Bayou Bienvenue locks closed

TECHNIQUE:

• Started out with trolling motor along wall, but N.N.W. wind just pushed us hard to the back of the locks by the steel bulkhead
• Switched over to the Oak River Troll, BINGO, our first drift landed (17) Silverwonders, we just kept running back up wind turn the NauticStar back south and did the Oka River Troll in about 14 feet of water, did this all evening.

LURE DU JOUR:

3” H&H chartrouse glow beetle, matched up with H&H ¼ round white head with gold hook, the Silverwonders where so aggressive they eat the red dot off my H&H lure.

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

• Wall (2)t, plan “B” ran over to Michaud Slip, but as we turned into it from the ICW it had 3 foot white caps, time to move on to plan “C” H.W. canal (48)t, wanted to see if we could find some bigger Silverwonders, moved over to  Bayou Bienvenue, did the Oak River Troll along the rocks, nothing, moved to race boat alley at ICW, did Oak River Troll nothing. By this time the wind had laid down a little, went to Michaud Slip back by Airco Products, did the Oak River Troll nothing, return to HW canal (6)t, stopped fishing around 5:30 PM, had that nice real cold ride back to the launch.
• Depth finder where marking big schools of fish in 30 – 35 feet of water, the whole screen was full of fish.

OUR REWARD:

• Sun set to live for, real pretty
• (56) Silverwonders (40) throw backs
• (1) Bottom
• Cold evening on the water with one of the best fisherperson I know
• Got to ride in NauticStar a real nice riding boat
• Got my one more trip in before the end of February, may have to try and get another in
• Security ran us out of the H.W. canal slip, we had to shorting our drift to about a block.
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Tie, need to have a fish off

SUGGESTIONS:

The Silverwonders where feeding, me think we caught the tail end of the feed, we had many double hooks ups, and you could not drop your line down without getting 2 -3 hits. If I where to go tomorrow I would be eat the HW canal for 2:00 PM and do the Oak River Troll along the rocks in 14 feet of water.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

“I LIVE WITH FEAR EVERYDAY, BUT SOMETIMES
SHE LET’S ME GO FISHING”

Me think Oneofthepack all set up to take Big Ray this Saturday, he posted and offered his assistance for a fishing partner aboard the Bay Flat Sr.

this year is going to be a great one. The sheepsheads,
drums and bull reds or starting to show longest the
weather lets us get out there so we can put some in
the box. we are looking forward for spring to get
here so we can move on the outside and catch some
big beautiful trout, you'll just have to burn some fuel
and cover some ground but it will surly be worth the
ride. We are scheduling trips so if you are ready for
some great fishing and making long lasting memories
don't waste any time and call Capt. Jimmy Corley.    

All of the fishing trips include poles, bait, fuel, tackle,

Hey Pack,

conversion you requested

So mph is 15% higher than the knot value.

TEAM JO-JO

Bay Flat Sr open boat today, based on above indicators me think don’t  “Got TO GO TO KNOW”  me  think she will stay open all day and possibly the remainder of the week.

The  above conditions (Re: Shell Beach) address most of the actual major conditions (Priority # 1 water clarity, # 2 moving water, # 3 wind)  we look for,  (2 and 3) will be met for sure but think the water level and # 1 clarity would / will  be a concern.

Still need to get one more trip in for the month of February, any suggestion on where to go?

What is the conversation for Kts to MPH?????

means we caught at least (10)
Silverwonders, which you don’t see is
the one in my pocket to keep track of
throw backs. Using the clickers keeps

Silverwonders.

And no fish not numbered, just our

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries News

Monroe Man Cited for Cutting Down Trees on Ouachita WMA

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents cited a Ouachita Parish resident for alleged Wildlife Management Area (WMA) violations on the Ouachita WMA.

Agents cited John Johnson, 63, of Monroe, for criminal damage to state property, intentional littering, hunting deer out of season and leaving a deer stand in a hunting position.

Agents observed Johnson returning from a deer hunt on Jan. 31 on the Ouachita WMA, which was closed for deer hunting for the youth waterfowl hunt. Agents observed Johnson discard plastic bottles on the ground and leave his deer stand in a hunting position from a few days prior.

Upon further investigation, Johnson admitted to agents that he cut 14 trees down along with 79 limbs in various sizes and diameters to clear a shooting lane. Agents cited him for criminal damage to state property on Feb. 15.

Cutting down trees on a WMA is criminal damage to state property and carries a fine up to $10,000 and up to 10 years in jail. Johnson may also face a civil restitution charge for the replacement value of the trees.

Hunting deer out of season and leaving a deer stand in a hunting position on a WMA each brings a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail. Intentional littering brings a $250 fine and eight hours of community service in a litter abatement work program.

Agents involved with the case are Lt. Lane Kincaid, Lt. Thomas Risser, Sgt. Scott Bullitt and Agent Joshua Harris.

LDWF is still investigating and seeking leads for information about who cut down trees on the Spring Bayou WMA in Avoyelles Parish. LDWF has found up to 100 trees cut down on the Spring Bayou WMA since early December of 2014.

LDWF has secured up to $1,000 in reward money each from the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation, Spring Bayou Restoration Team and Louisiana’s Operation Game Thief. The reward now totals up to $3,000 to anyone with information that leads to the arrest in this case. Anyone with information regarding the cut down trees on the Spring Bayou WMA should call the Louisiana Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-800-442-2511 or use LDWF’s tip411 program.

To use the tip 411 program, citizens can text LADWF and their tip to 847411 or download the “LADWF Tips” iPhone and Android app from the Apple App Store or Google Play free of charge.

TEAM JO-JO

When we refer to fishing 180* arch, not sure all fisherperson know what we are referring to, so following is our attempt to share our strategy to fishing an tide / current line with a arch.

Upper right illustrates (2) types of arch as it turns around a point.

Type (1) (yellow line) would be a tight to shore arch / current line, this will not allow boat to be position inside of arch and/or current line (re: type 2). Boat position for this type would be somewhat the same as a wider arch, but boat would not be along shore line it would be position in the deep channel parallel to the shore line.

Type (2) (Purple line) wider arch, boat position inside of arch, note wind direction at your back, if you had to fish outside the arch, note wind would be in your face, this not good.

Staying with illustration lower right (re: type 2) note boat position bow slightly ahead of stern, (need two anchors to make this happen and hold this position) this is so the fisherperson on bow, can make the cast up along the shallow side of the drop off, fish down the drop off, and let lure run along inside of the current line back to the apex of the arch.

Stern fisherperson will cast to the apex of the arch and will fish all the way back up the drop off and along the shallow side at stern of boat.

Your cast should be just on the other side of current line. Strike zone is from cast to end of cast, once bow person or stern persons locates “STRIKE ZONE” (which could only be 4-8 feet section of arch) you both need to adjust your cast and fish it accordingly. It may be necessary to reposition boat (don’t relay like doing this, and most time we don’t, we just make do where we are at.) just a little so both can stay in strike zone as long as possible.

Don’t make the mistake of trying to throw right to the strike zone, because before your lure makes it down you will already be out of it. Instead just throw up current a few feet, remember you want to stay in the strike zone once you have found it. Once you pass it don’t fish all the way to end cast, reel in and get back in position for your lure to run through that strike zone again.

The 3 areas of best “STRIKE ZONE” results are:

  • Bow cast, when lure starts to run down drop off be ready
  • At apex of the arch / current line, lure starts to changes direction
  • Stern end cast when lure coming up drop off.

However it is best to fish the whole 180 arch from drop off to drop off because section of strike zone can change at any time.

Hope this makes sense and hope this will help all you fisherperson quest to catch a few Silverwonders

If you have any questions, please email them and we will try to answer and/or explain what we are trying to share.

Good Fishing

Hey la,

Google up ; shad, menhaden,pogey, or even alwives as they call them over on the LA coast (Lower Alabama).

I often use a chrome and blue Rattletrap for trolling the Causeway where baitfish school up by the acres.

Capt. Tommy Pellegrin

Houma, LA USA

Quite a while ago my nephew Michael used to deckhand for me and as all young ambitious guys are he grew up and has a son of his own now named Gabe. Well it was time to take Gabe on his first saltwater fishing trip. After postponing it a couple of times due to weather I didn't have the heart to do it again because I was sick. So with a bad cough and stuffed head I took them on a trip. With the calm weather I wanted to get on the outside and catch a bunch of sheepshead but that didn't go so well with the water looking like chocolate milk everywhere. When you have a 4 year old and the wind is very calm it pretty much eliminates the marsh due to the gnats and mosquitoes. They ate us up. So it was outside or nothing this day. From Pass wilson, caillou boca, enstar, big bayou dularge and grand caillou bayou we gave it a run. We also made it almost to oyster bayou. Very dirty water was killing us along with the bugs. We would dive into the marsh long enough to catch a couple of fish and then run. Needless to say Gabe had a ball. He caught his first red fish, sheepshead, and drum on this day and will remember forever the fun he had. He never shut up the entire time in the truck or at the house when we got back. I live for days like this. You have to get the kids loving the outdoors so they can enjoy life like we do. For your trip of a lifetime call Capt. Tommy Pellegrin 985-851-3304. photo 20150222_091720_zpsg5gyfjq4.jpg

AREA/SPOT # 5 Oneofthepack ‘s # 1 TOP classified secrete spot

Year 1st fished: 60’S

Latitude: Suggest you find this info & keep for future Re: land disappearing

Longitude: Suggest you find this info & keep for future Re: land disappearing

Rating: 5 1 to 5 (1) WORTH A TRY TO (5) MONEY SPOT

Most Trout caught: 250 spot known for some nice Silverwonders

Most reds caught: 15

Biggest Trout: 3#

Biggest Red: 8#

Odd fish caught: 2.5 # Stripe Bass

Water depth: 14-16 feet East side of pipeline is the channel

Best tide: In or out, when tide is slack good spot to find moving water, tide will move here first

Type bottom: Clean

Hang ups: Some oyster shells

Presentations: Tight line along the bottom, fish up and down the drop offs, and corks in the flats, and along shoreline

Best wind (@ your back): East or West

Best wind Oak River Troll: North or South

Best (BP) boat position: East side of pipeline, just off drop off, try to put your boat in the current line Also west side of pipeline, once again put you boat just off the drop off. Position boat so you can fish current line.

COMMENTS:
Red line along shore line indicates areas for red fish, it has produced a number of them over the years we would just drift the shoreline throwing spinner baits for reds.

When the tide is falling, throw up into shallow side of pipeline, let the lure run with the current, give it a little twitch every now and then, this produced many Silverwonders & flounders, shallow side also good with corks West of pipeline other drop off, and other shallow side also good, set up and fish the same way. I like this side for a incoming tide. Position your boat just off the drop off, throw up current let lure sink to bottom (10-12) feet, fish the lure all along the bottom, and to 180* arch in front of you, the strike zone is about 145* from the bow.

Land has receded about ½ block in this area, so you can also fish away from the point and try that area too, but again fish the drop offs This spot is great for the Oak River Troll, north wind drift to just pass the cross canal, south wind drift out into the bay and/or you find 6 feet of water, as long as you are getting taps and/or catching keep drifting, seen us catch a bunch of Silverwonders doing this technique, and with most of our limit coming from same.

Suggest you check this spot out in the summer time, and note where the grass line is, the Silverwonders love the Grass line and just wait there for the bait to come through.

This spot mostly a one boat spot, so please be courteous, if there is a boat their let them have it and move on, cause if you are not in just the right spot all you will do is catch nothing and mess up the other fisherperson trip.

This spot has a aka name (Dago Spot) many moons ago (27) we use to fish with a fisherperson who own a Pizza shop on Sena Dr (By Martin Wine Cellar) in Metairie, I cannot remember his name, but remember him well. He would always bring a whole cooked chicken for us to eat, back then my son 9 (now 36) would ask me dad we going fishing with the chicken man, Big Randy loves chicken like dad. Anyway I think his name was Carlo, Carlo would always tell me he caught fish at the Conservation Camp, (where ever that was) but we always found him at spot # 5, thus the aka name “Dago” spot.

Do any of you fisherperson know who I’m referring to, if so please let me know how I can get in touch with him, I know the Pizza shop is gone, but have not heard from Carlo, (if that is his name) in many years.

Delacroix, LA USA

The weather turned out to be
spectacular today and so did the
fishing.  Capt. Jack had the pleasure
of squeezing in a little quick
charter.  They fished for about 3
hours in Skippy Lake and Little Lake
ending up with 70 beautiful Speckled
Trout.  But people were catching all
over the place today.  Point Fienne
was mentioned as one of the spots that
was on.  Most anglers were using Live
Shrimp, but Capt. Jack was using
plastic.  It’s a shame the weather is
about to turn bad because so many
spots turned on today.  The good news
is that when the weather clears, the
fish will be ready. So come on down to
Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix while
fishing is still good.  Hope to see
you soon and remember we are the
second launch.  Please call ahead to
check on the live bait situation.
Charters and lodging are available for
still available for the upcoming
months and a small deposit will hold
your date. Call the lodge for
reservations, 504-342-2368.  
So come visit us in Delacroix at
Sweetwater Marina where customer
service is number one.
Need help launching your boat? No
problem.
Fish cleaning when available.
Looking forward to seeing you guys
here at the island.

Slidell, LA USA

            TEAM JO-JO

Crew for today Big Earl, (we
communicated via rodnreel.com) finally
got to meet him this morning, we had
made plans to make a trip today so that
Big Earl could learn a few spots, and
how to do the Oak River Troll down in
our Disney World known as Delacroix
Island.

SIGNS:

• Could not sleep
• Got on the internet to check
out Shell Beach weather station to see
what the wind was doing, it was not
working.
• Hit a tab that gave me other
stations and ships info, saw 25 – 30
MPH winds out of the S.E., this not
good.
• After loading up the FORD
transporter, turn Don Dubic on to
listing to his fishing show, sang along
with the open musses, Get down the
Fiddle………………………………….. and so on. But
what I was hearing Oneofthepack did not
like, high winds, small craft warnings,
etc. etc. was not getting much
encouragement from the show.
• As I drove down to Team Jo-Jo’s
official meeting place ( Waffle House
in Chalmette) listen to the various
Mariners, and Capt's  giving their
reports,  talk of cancelling trips,
wind gusting to 29 MPH, once again not
to encouraging info for a trip today.
• Flag on Paris Road straight out
• Smoke stacks at end of Paris
road, smoke came out about 2 foot then
bent over real quick
• Oneofthepack had to think this
trip through, pulled into the Waffle
was just going to get coffee and grits,
but decided to get my usual, cause the
cook said your usual, yes says I.
• I was seriously thinking of
calling Big Earl and cancelling out,
but really did not want to do that on
our first trip, and in the back of my
mind I kept hearing “YOU GOT TO GO TO
KNOW”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
• Then I saw (1) boat in the gas
station, knew I was not the only nut
going out
• Reached the slip, Bay Flat Sr
looked puzzled, but after throwing all
the gear in, and gave her a pep talk,
she fired right up.
• Now running about 15 minutes
behind schedule, took to long thinking
about what to do.
• Pulled up at Big Earl’s camp,
he sitting on dock waiting for me, no
concern mention of the wind, so I guess
we where good to go.
• Made a stop at Lionel’s for
some go juice and ice, no boats in the
yard, dock empty, easy as 123.
• Now off to face the winds, made
it to our honey hole Alligator Pass
(saw (2) boats, water clarity was a 2
little better then Thursday.

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• S.E. wind 20-25 MPH
• Very windy
• Over cast day
• Mild temps
• Water level 16 – 18” up
• Water temp 53F
• Tide rising, stopped around 2
PM then turned around
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7
at the pass 2 minus, Oak River a 5


TECHNIQUE:

• Started out Oak River Troll,
did (2) (ORT) across Alligator Pass,
nothing
• Plan “B” Pelicans hundreds of
them diving in Grand Lake gave it a try
but nothing
• Plan “C” find clean water, hit
Oak River water not bad, tide rising,
wind in same direction, had “OAK RIVER
TROLL” wrote all over it.
• Stayed with plan “C” all day,
stopped fishing at 3:25 PM, turned the
Bay Flat Sr north for a quick smooth
ride back to the slip.

LURE DU JOUR:

3” H&H chartrouse glow beetle matched
up with H&H ¼ oz white round head w/
gold hook, that is all it took.

Big Earl had a Matrix Shad Creole
shrimp on, did not take long for him to
change over to a beetle, he was still
struggling a little. The he noticed I
did not have a swivel, and/or a leader,
off they came, but he still not quite
there. He tried 3/8 oz head, this is
when he hung up and lost his lure. Told
him to put a ¼ oz head  on with a
beetle. I did not like the head so I
gave him one of mind and the beetle I
was using. Once again, his efforts
improved, but still not there.

I watch him for awhile, finally I said
try this pole, it could have not been a
minute when he noticed the difference,
this pole a lot lighter says he. Now
all things equal Big Earl in the game.

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP
FISHED:

Alligator Pass, # 61A (89)t.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (89) Silverwonders
• (1) Flounder
• (7) Bottoms
• (1) Stick
• (1) Bushel of grass
• Big Earl learned:
o Where to fish
o What rig to use
o What lure to use
o And he crammed a 12 hour course
on now to do the “OAK RIVER TROLL” into
an 8 hour fishing day. Me think Big
Earl graduated with honors. Team Jo-Jo
may have to make him an honorable
member of Team Jo-Jo, his is that good
NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
• Got to challenge the elements
of the day, unlike Thursday trip, we
handle the elements very well.
• Got to meet another
fisherperson Big Earl, one of the best
fisherperson I just met, hope to make a
repeat trip soon.
• Best fishing trip of my life,
until the next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Big Earl was slow getting out of the
gate, had a huge gap to overcome, but
me think next trip will be a different
story he is armed and dangerous now.

SUGGESTIONS:

Water looking good, should be even a
better day tomorrow, suggest you
fisherperson learn the “OAK RIVER
TROLL” need to add this to your
repertoire of techniques, with this
technique, wind is your friend.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

"I've gone fishing thousands of times
in my life, and I have never once felt
unlucky or poorly paid for those hours
on the water."


What the chances of them biting
tomorrow too, guess I will have to flip
a coin, go / no go, hope to see all you
fisherperson out and about, until then:

Good Fishing

In response to Mike Lane

Don't know what is going on Mike but I was trying to send this to Dockside. Anyway I use the Matrix baits a lot find them very effective. I also enjoy the tips and techniques on the Dockside video's.

Thanks Chas

New Iberia, LA USA

Jim & I fished Lake Fausse Point on Friday, 10:00 to 2:00, finding good water in the Texaco Canals but only 2 bass.  That area was being pre-fished for a tournament the next day, but we were told that they were not catching.  We have had a weather change between yesterday and today, so pre-fishing did them no good.
