Pathfinder

Baton Rouge , LA USA

Caught about 15 good ones out of hopedale.
Found a canal w clean water. Slow on the
bottom was the ticket. Very subtle bite. If you find
clean water the fish are there. Light line, small
(1/8) oz jig head w matrix tail. Didn't catch many
but what was caught was all 2-3lbs. Bite was like
a "causeway" bite. See line twitch on the fall best
be setting hook. Still lots of river water
everywhere.

Nada in Delacroix.

It's not that I'm glad that Stanley
caught nothing but at least my bride of
25 years cannot question my fishing
expertise after our trip down to
Delacroix ended with nothing in the box
today.  I doubt the sustained winds
dropped below 15  before noon and viz
was less than 1 foot from a trouts
perspective.  All the way down to Oak
River tried everything in my tackle box
not even a nibble. The last time we were
down there together George Bush Sr was
President. Remembered some old spots and
reawakened some old memories.

Delacroix today: dirty, silty, rivery water all over Oak
River, Pt Fienne, Skippy, etc. Ran all the way to twin
pipeline up near Four Horse just to find decent
enough water to see my lower unit.
Caught one redfish, about 27", on plastic in the twin
pipes. Only bite of the day.
Sunny and chilly and slow. Seems like we weren't the
only ones struggling either.

GottaFish

Delacroix by way of Kenner, LA USA

In response to Everett Keith:

In relation to your sheepshead
question, my answer would be that
maybe you are not cleaning them
correctly.  For the most part, they
have the whitest, most tender meat you
can find.  My wife and daughter swore
that they could not eat them after
being spoiled for years with trout and
redfish.  That has changed.  I finally
got to a point where I just could not
see throwing them back anymore and
started keeping them.  I've heard all
the stories about you can't freeze
them, and the only way to cook them is
wrapped in cheesecloth then boil them
in crab boil.  Don't believe that!  
They are great fried or baked if
cleaned properly, and cleaning them is
not any harder than cleaning a
redfish.  I use an electric filet knife and
start at the tail.  I run the knife
just an inch or two up the backbone,
then if you notice just along those
dangerous upper spikes there is a soft
"trench" from the tail all the way to
the head on each side.  Run the knife
along that trench, staying close to
the bone line.  Sometime, on bigger
fish you may make two or three passes.  
then do the bottom side, from the tail
to just before his "poop" hole.  Now
from where you worked at his head, put
the knife inside of the fish going
toward the scales, (the knife is kinda
upside down), cut until you get below
the rib cage.  Make a semi-circle
around the rib cage, then straight
down from there until you reach the
cut you made on the bottom.  The
description is long, but once you get
it down, it really gets much more
understandable.  A sheepsheads
bloodline is not really as much of a
line, as it is all along the lower
half of the fish.  I never leave them
on the half shell for that reason.  
Filet it off the skin, flip it over
and you will see how much of the meat
is bloodline, (a lot more on bigger
fish).  I take a sharp hand filet
knife and trim that off.  Again,
because the meat is so tender, that
filets off pretty easy as well.  If I
knew how, I'd make a video to post
here, but you know, old dogs, new
tricks, and all that stuff...

Hope that helps!

Don's Outdoor Debacles

Metairie, LA USA

Big Al and I were back at them in
Delacroix this am.  I'm already humble,
I did not need this level of humbling.
Dirty water everywhere, wind was not
too bad, but going opposite tide.  Oak
River, Pt Fienne(ran into Pack, he
doing almost as bad as us, not a good
sign), Little Lake, Alligator Pass, and
some spots in between.  Drifting,
corks, tight line, tipped shrimp, nada,
brutal.  Got them where I want them,
can only go sideways or up from here.

Score for today:

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

             TEAM JO-JO

Familyofthepack leaving town next week, needed to get one more trip in before we gone for a week. Who do you call “one call that’s all” Big Bud (aka Eastofmrgo) made plans to fish today no matter what.

SIGNS:

• Trip to Hollywood Casino last night, up 56, good sign
• Confidence level high
• Expectations high 50 or more Silverwodners
• Water on windshield frozen
• Garage door will not close
• Early at Big Bud we to meet up at 5:30, was there for 5
• Passed on Waffle House & Last Stop store, we on a mission
• Water level in canal at junction look to be a little low, not bad
• Tide falling at Reggio canal
• Saw a skiff throwing 8 foot cast net at bridge, looked like he had either big shads, or red fish in the net, net was loaded with fish
• Bay Flat Sr. in her slings, looking shy and pumped at the same time
• Loaded her up, off we went (no stop required at Lionel’s) straight to Alligator Pass to start our journey for the day.

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• N.N.E. wind 8-10 mph
• Sunny & clear
• Cold, and colder, jump suit could not handle it, had to put rain jacket on to break the wind
• Tide falling I think
• Water level 6” down
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 1 plus in all areas we ran around to find cleaner water, but none was to be  found, ran N/S pipe, Oak River & N/S, Bay Batola, spot 18, Orange Bayou, Grand Lake, Alligator Pass, Little Lake, water looked the same all over dirty and sandy looking.
• Only saw a few boats out and about, but they too where all running round

TECHNIQUE / STARTEGY:

• Have fun
• Find clean water to fish
• Gather Intel post it on rodnreel.com for the weekend worries to review and consider in making their decisions as if they “HAD TO GO TO KNOW” or would they just take heed of our post and move forward accordingly. As for Oneofthepack I will still “HAVE TO GO TO KNOW”.
• Tight Line zip
• Corks zip
• Oak River Troll zip
• Reverse Oak River Troll zip
• Top, bottom, middle, up the drop offs, and down the drop offs, on the shallow side, on the deep side, and all points in-between, ZIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
• Try to calm my nerves as will be off the water for 7 plus days, had hopes of catching a few to carry me through that period. But every cloud has a silver lining, based on today’s trip, conditions of the water, and the elusiveness of the Silverwonders, me think we might not be missing much, but look out when we get back.

LURE DU JOUR:

Could not, did not, was not able, no can do find one for the day, all lures equaled one BIG ZIP.


AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot # Alligator Pass, 18, A, B, C, D, 17B, 17, 2A, 1, 2, 3, 2B, 2C, 17, 20,21,60, 61, 61A, B ,C, 63, 64, stopped fishing at 10:05 AM, turned the Bay Flat Sr. north for a quick smooth ride back to the slip.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• Fishes 100  Team Jo-Jo Big Bud & Oneofthepack ZIP, Natta, nothing , skunked
• No bottoms, no hook ups
• (3) blades of grass
• Got to provide some intel for the weekend worries
• Humbled by mother nature
• Hope the fish gods did not get upset with us going to church, I know she has a temper or two
• Learned that even with Big Bud (aka Eastofmrgo) and Oneofthepack  on board the Bay Flat Sr. is it possible we cannot make it happen no matter how hard we try.
• Great day on the water with Big Bud
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Fishes, they got to eat AND avoid all our presentations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SUGGESTIONS:

Don’t discount a chance to go fishing due to our report, as we all know one day they are on, on, on and the next you cannot catch a fish. So this may be a reversal of this, they off, off, off and tomorrow you catch, catch, and catch, plus we are a frim believer ‘YOU GOT TO GO TO KNOW”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


PONDER OF THE DAY:

In order to catch Silverwonders you must fail, so that you know what not to do the next time.

Off the water for a while, hope to see you all out and about when we get back, until then:

Good Fishing

I know everyone saw me selling some of my fishing equipment.

I only sold the equipment that I owned that I will never use again, tuna rods & reels. The reason I will never use this equipment again is I no longer have an offshore boat. When I do go tuna fishing I will be with a guide and will not need my own equipment.

I am reinvesting these $$$ on new snapper equipment and trout, redfish and flounder tackle.

I am not quitting fishing, I am upgrading some older equipment.

Mike Lane will be here until God calls me home!

985Crabs

Folsom, LA USA

In response to Everett Kerth

Sheephead are, arguably, one of the best tasting meat fish there is.  They're fun to catch, but a pain to clean.  Cut down from the head, around the entire ribcage and back to the tail.  The fillets end up a funny shape, but there's nothing good about the belly area and that's where the bones are.  Cut out any bloodline.  I bake them on the half shell covered in butter, Tony's and garlic for about 22 minutes at 350F depending on how thick it is.  Then I'll put them under the broiler for a couple minutes to give them some color.  Simple, yet delicious.

So where you catching all these sheep fish?

ALWAYS, ALWAYS cut out/remove the very dark line (bloodline) and ALL OTHER traces that on the meat!

Minding my own business 2-4-16.

Cooking noodles for supper and the phone rings, “want to catch some perch?“ , for sure.10:45am, Capt Don gave some driving instructions and off I went with my new Shakespeare ultra light combo,01A15CM ugly stick with a matching GX2MC reel and a Wal-Mart Bag for the catch (seemed to be a lack of confidence). Should have known better if Capt Don was in charge of the trip. By the time I got there he had a bucket full and was still catching. After a few instructions (Cast to locn and technique) and location of the grass shrimp it was on, kinda, me and this light tackle go round and round before I finally get the bait actually in the water, (Don moved about 10’ away after witnessing the first 3-4 casts). Finally started helping fill the bucket before the wind rose and the bite slowed. Had a great surprise fishing trip that I never thought would happen and caught perch for a fish fry also. Fished about 1 hour and came home with 24 nice perch, add that to the ones Capt Don had and the total was 84.
Windy(which Don said I brought with me), water kinda dirty, cool air temp. All fish caught on a small black grub on 1/32 oz jig head both under a cork and tight lined, (as much as that was possible in the wind), tipped with Grass Shrimp.
Thanked Capt Don for having me on his “Think I’ll call Buddy list“.

ONEOFTHEPACK just confirmed 5:30am pickup for a trip to Delacroix tomorrow, life is good, made better by having good friends.

This fundraising event helps to provide the necessary funds that allow us house men and women with life controlling problems. We have 8 residential centers across the state of Louisiana. One of which, women are able to bring children with them. That facility also allows us to bring in women that are pregnant. The length of stay in all these centers is 12 months. Because it is free for the students, we need to have various fund raising events through out the year. Your participation in this sporting clay event will not only be a great time for you and your friends but it will be a great benefit to us.

In response: 1)I'll give you a call, we'll fish
together 2) even though I enjoy tight line I have
been under a popping cork for two months. The
Storm Bunker is extremely durable and the Vudu
is equal however as stated they do slide which
can be problematic. Super glue is the key. Let
me say this, any plastic than can boat 10 or
more fish is awesome. Live bait does have a
spot in my fishing however the pros of plastics
far outweigh market & live presentation cons. I
can't pass up the opportunity to let everyone
know that the Tsunami soft plastic Golden
Bunker 3in is another slam dunk! I don't know
what they've changed chemically but they are
much more dureabl than a few years ago.

In response to Mike Lane

Yes the Vudu does catch fish,but
after a few fish the bait constantly
slides down the hook,people who use
them super glue the body to the hook
before fishing with them.They don't
weigh very much so you don't have the
extra weight to make real long
casts.They claim to be able to catch
100 fish on one bait but I doubt that
claim.They do come in some good
colors but so do Matrix baits and
they are very expensive and I've
never been outfished by one,but this
is just my opinion.

Luck_Strike, How did you fish the Storm Bunker and the Vudu lures.

Cast and retrieve, bounce on bottom, under a cork?

Many thanks,

I fish all over the place with many people. I end up leaving some of my fishing rods & reels with these people. I know these people would return my equipment, but they don't know who it belongs to.

I found a guy that can laser your name & phone number into the handle of your rods. Reasonable price, great work (he has done all of my fish cleaning & chefs knives).

I just brought him 15 rods to laser my name & phone number into the handles.

Now if i leave some equipment on the dock or in someones boat they will know who it belongs to.

I will post some pictures of his work and publish his name & phone number when he is done.

With the price of rod's & reels today, it only makes sense.

Beautiful Day at Delacroix yesterday! Little Lake
drifting was the ticket. The water was a 10, the
wind barely 5 out of the sse, the lure was Storm
Bunker and Vudu root beer. The bite was slow
but still wound up with 30 & the majority being 12
to 14 with a huge juvenile throwback. Really a
fun day with a great friend ! God Bless & to
those who enjoy Mardi Gras have a great time

Guys,
Check out these photos. This was the condition of the bow of my Xpress when I arrived at Sweetwater yesterday. Apparently, Xpress fabricated the hull and welded together and then cut a small square off the bow in which to drill holes for the U-bolt and then re-welded the piece back onto the hull. I will be getting in touch with Xpress to confirm the hull warranty. Check your bow straps close guys.

Pictures for this Report!

Just checkin.2-1-16

Article said “dirty water moved trout to Biloxi marsh”. Big place ,but, decided to try the area I usually fish there. 6:30 am start at Fort Pike in thick fog, made it to the break at Byu Magill for about 8. Nice and  calm, quiet and a light tide line coming out of the Byu. Tried top bottom and in between with lemonhead Matrix and gold spoon. No bait movement or bites . Headed out to Bob’s lakes area and tried some spots that produce specks summer and early fall, no bites. One stop in Bay Maroon at a pond for reds, tide to low to get in, never saw any movement of bait or predators. Back to Magill Lagoon and several canals and fished hard for Reds with no takers, absence of bait in the area is unusual, but a fact now. Ride back across a clear, then foggy(4miles from LBTB) ,Lake Borgne  and Rigolets, and on the trailer for 3:30.
Great conditions, Light wind up to 5-10 on and off, clean water(8 on 1-10 scale) all spots tried, salinity, light with taste test. Light falling tide to start to dead to incoming early. Bait tried Gold spoon, and lemonhead matrix on Ό oz H&H round white head.
Have an opportunity to fish Delacroix Friday, looking forward to that, then Back to Byu Biloxi to find out why the reds won‘t cooperate.

Houma, LA USA

Took a little scouting trip by myself today. I had heard about some big fish on a reef in the lake down Dularge so I braved the fog (very cautiously) to get out. I waited till 9 to leave the house hoping the fog would lift before I got down the bayou. That was a negative I only had about 1/4 mile visibility but it was enough. The first cast was a blank but the next 3 produced fish, then nothing for awhile. Moved around a little and then it was on, big fish hammering the bait. Well I wasn't satisfied I wanted some of this big fish action on top water. It didn't happen. I wasted a lot of time trying though. These hammers wanted swim baits and that's what I gave them till they quit on me. That was fine with me because I need to get home, and had found out what I wanted to know. I was using the bait in the picture in 4 feet of water over shells. If you want in on this action give me a call. Let's get out there early and put a stomping on these big fish. #capttommypellegrin, #purefishing, #justgrabitglove, #lowrance, #Kysek  photo 20160201_101942_zpsflzmq3cd.jpg photo 20160201_111342_zps0r4zyvql.jpg photo 20160201_150713_zpsbg0symt8.jpg

Caernarvon Outfall Channel can affect Western Delacroix and East Point a la Hache areas. For whatever reason I believe it is not flowing at the present.

              TEAM JO-JO

No trip scheduled for today, did not know how I would make out at church, but when I woke up this morning, I looked at recoding of Wicked Tuna, that is all it took, time to go fishing.

Posted on RNR to Big Bud looking for first mate, no response, started getting ready, load up the FORD transporter, and was pulling out of the driveway when the cell phone rings, it was Big Mike (met him for the first time today)  wanted to know if I found a first mate yet. No says I, do you want to go says I, yes says he, Says I, we can meet up at Waffle House in Oak Harbor in a few minutes, can do says he.

Got to love rodnreel.com, post request and get a quick response to same, what a team.

SINGS:

• The church did not fall down, real nice service, enjoyed it
• Our reward, brunch at Palmetto
• Rough night sleep
• Last minute first mate came available
• Not many boats on Hwy or gas stations
• Passed on Last Stop store, but was thinking about their ham and swill on French loaded and with salt & pepper, though about it all day.
• Water level normal
• Water not moving at Reggio, slack tide
• Arrived at Bay Flat Sr. abode she looking bright eyed, bushy tailed  and ready to go
• Gave little speech, caution re: crossing road, and dock around boat
• We travel light (re: gear)  Bay Flat Sr. loaded up real quick, one trip from truck to boat
• Motored over to Lionel’s for some go juice and ice
• Off to spot # 17 to start out day, took almost an hour to get their (FOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• S.S.E wind calm, then 6-8 MPH
• Fog, fog, fog, lasted till around 11:00 AM, got worst as the day went along
• It started to rain a little, could not see the clouds due to the fog, though the fog was raining on us.
• Sun came out for awhile
• Tail end of a falling tide, went slack for a long time, just started coming in when we left around 1:40 PM
• Water level normal
• Water Temp 62 F Silverwonders where warm, not cold like Friday
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was:
 Spot # 17 Point Fienne was a 2 plus, real sandy looking could see lure down a foot
 Spot # 20 Oak River & North / South pipe line minus 1 real bad
 We spent the day in # 17, made a very quick run to # 20 and back
• Had a few boast out and about:
 Little Lake 16
 Skippy Bay 4
 Point Fienne 12
 Plus a few in many other spots
• All conditions where align, but we had a challenge to make it happen

TECHNIQUE / STRATEGY:

• Have fun
• Check water conditions out in all areas, looked bad in all areas
• Concentrate on the are w caught them Friday
• Corks 15
• Tight line 18
• Oak River Troll (ORT) 6

LURE DU JOUR:

• 3” Purple H&H beetle matched dup with H&H Ό oz. round white head w/gold hook 12t
• 3” Matrix Shad Lemon Drop matched up with 3/8 oz. round H&H head w/gold hook 24t
• 3” Matrix Shad Creole Shrimp (Big Mike) 3t

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot # 17 (25)t, # 20, # 17 (12)t, stopped fishing around 1:40 PM, turned the Bay Flat Sr. north for a quick run back to her slip.

Did a pass by, by 17D,18,18A,B,C,D,E water looked bad, did not stop to fish.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (37) Silverwodners (29) throw backs
• (1) flounder
• (2) Bottoms
• (1/2) bushel of grass
• No food, no drinks just the way we like it
• Got to meet and fish with Big Mike (all 6’-2” of him), Big Mike was a great first mate, handled the voice activated power pole real well, and he knew his way around a boat. All but when I would take off, ( gave the command hold on) he almost pulled a Big Ronnie on me and rolled all the way to the back of the Bay Flat Sr.
• Big Mike need not catching lessons, in fact he could have gave Oneofthepack a few, this man a good fisherperson for sure.
• We made the day of 2 fisherperson fishing alongside of the road, stopped and asked if they wanted some fish, yessem was the answer. As we ( Big Mike Frist Mate) was loading Silverwodners into the bucket, one of the fisherpersons looks at Oneofthepack and says you that guy on Paradise Louisiana, (now that is a sign) with that we even gave him the ice.
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY”

Big Mike caught the first, last and biggest Silverwodners of the day, and many in- between the drifts and anchor ups, he also a cork expert, Big Mike fisherperson of the day.

SUGGESTIONS:

Me think we caught the tail end of a feed, when we reached Point Fienne, Seagulls and Pelicans where sitting on top of the water, first cast was a hook up, and bam, bam, bam, it was on but only for 20-30 minutes and they were small and hard to hook. I knew it was over when I caught the flounder, my theory is if you on a Silverwodners feed, and you catch a flounder it is all over with, and that is what we had today.

Based on above you might want to get an early start to catch the feed, or go out late and catch the incoming tide, my money is on spot # 17, best looking water in the area/s.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

Don't aim for success / catching if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.

In all probability Friday will be out last day to fish for about 10 days, we will be back at them down in our Disney World known as Delacroix Island, hope to see you all out and about, until then:

Good Fishing

Bush, LA USA

Are there any web sites where I can find info on
fresh water diversion from the Mississippi to the
Delacroix area?
Fished Delacroix today and the water in Point
Fienne and Skippy Lake was horrible. Looked
like muddy rain water run off. Visibility was about
three inches. The water in a Little Lake was
much better, caught 20 specks there, not so
much as a nibble anywhere else.
