Baton Rouge, LA USA

Fished Lake Bruin for three days with Tinker and friends.  My first trip to Bruin.  A beautiful lake with cypress trees all around.  We caught a few fish each day and the key is "few."  We did eat well.  Mr. T fried fish two nights with hush puppies.  Was great!!!!  The champion fisher was K and his son J; however, if you listened to C boy he did the best!  At any rate it was a great three days with good company and fellowship plus a few fish. Was good to fish.  See you on the water and good luck fishing.

terrytown, LA USA

Put the boat down this morning about 7:30 and thought about messing with trout but decided to go after reds instead with the tide falling all morning.  Pulled up to a spot at the mouth of Wilkerson Bayou and it was on like donkey kong.  Sat in that one spot and hammered the reds and the  kids had a ball pulling in nice size reds.  Can't hardly bring enough ice chests when you get a bunch of reds so we had to take the beer and drinks off ice and put reds in the box.  Oh what a travesty!!! Caught em on not live shrimp under a cork in about a foot of water.

Saint Bernard, LA USA

TO Mike Barbier.......Mike, I am so very sorry to hear about George. Karen and I just saw him a few months ago at Hot Wok in Chalmette. He was cheerful as always and didn't say anything about being sick. In fact he looked great. George was one of the nicest guys one could ever meet! As you know I first met you and George at the Saint Bernard Duck Calling contest in 1970. You and George were both fierce competing against! Since then my family had become life long friends with the Barbiers, but kind of lost touch after Katrina. Hang in there, Mike, its hard to lose a family member. I lost my mom in January of last year. I don't know your phone number anymore. When you are up to it call me at 504-228-4506 or email mike@laduckhunts.com

She'll beach, LA USA

Fished Friday out of Hopefale with Capt Greg
Boudreaux from Capt Charlie's Bayou Charters.
Took my dad for his 80th birthday. Awesome trip.
Capt Greg treated dad like royalty! Caught more
fish than we could handle. Fished in Delacroix
around four horse with live shrimp under
Versamaxx cork. Was surprised to see that was
the goto cork for all his guides! Love it. Anyway,
caught several drum over 30 lbs for fun. Then
limited(20) on reds by 9:30. Started pursuing
trout and wound up with 14 and called it a day
cause dad was exhausted. We could have
caught another 20 trout easily. Beautiful day,
clean water, and plenty shrimp skipping along
top of water. Quite a few boats out too.

Slidell, LA USA

             TEAM JO-JO

         (Friday HBA trip)

Once again Team Jo-Jo was well represented at the St Tammany HBA , (annual) fishing rodeo this past Friday, we had a crew of (8) on the water down in our Disney World know as Delacroix Island looking for the winning Silverwonders & red.

Crew board the Big T-Doc 24’ SeaChaser:

• Big T-Doc
• Big Pablo
• Big-Bob
• Big Dale

Crew aboard the Bay Flat Sr:

• Oneofthepack
• Big Ronnie (aka Wildman, aka Dago)
• Big Jon Luther  (Soninlawof thepack)
• Oneofthepack2 (big William, Grandsonofthepack)

SIGNS:

• Due to predicted weather conditions rodeo was cancelled and move to 10-24-14
• Thursday night card game my contribution was only $30, my game is improving
• Started to try walking in the early mornings and late evenings along Oak Harbor Blvd, go to see 2 bunny rabbits along my walk on the levee.
• Up early Friday, my crew right on time, picked Big Jon and Oneofthepack2 made the run to Waffle House in Chalmette in record time.
• Big Ronnie already in the place, had our great breakfast and it was off we went to load up the Bay Flat Sr with all our gear, and gear did we have.
• Had to check my watch, needed to make sure it was a Friday, cause it looked like opening day for duck season,.  They had many, many boats on the hwy, and the gas stations was loaded up with boast getting ready for their day on the water.
• Lionel’s had boats backed up 10 deep at the launch
• Is this the new, will Friday also be a day for fishing and not working?  Could there really be that many retired fisherperson? It was good to see all the fisherpersons out and about
• Lionel’s BIG delights looked good, we knew the Silverwonders would not be able to resist them for breakfast.

CONDITION:

• Perfect
• N.E. wind 4-6 mph, up to 8-10 mph, than calmed down in the afternoon
• Sunny & mild, cool when running around in the Bay Flat Sr
• Tide falling all day, strong in the morning, stronger as the day went along, around 1:12 PM started to slow down
• Water temp 69F
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 2 plus to 3 minus, best looking water was in Bay La Fourche

TECHNIQUE:

• Night before developed  our game plan, fish for Silverwonders early in the morning, move on to reds, and wrap up the day looking for flounders, so that we could have a entry in each category. We to start out in Bay La Fourche, but as we passed Oak River & North / south pipeline had to stop and try, quick move to Little Crevasses (water dirty) decide to make the run to Bay La Fourche as planned, real good move was this.
• Anchor up fish bottom Carolina rig, and some with shrimp on beetle head, no beetle tail, just the shrimp
• Oak River Troll , wind and tide was perfect conditions nothing
• Corks, caught a few
• Find the birds, they were stacked up at the mouth where Oak River dumps into Bay La Fourche, me think they have been I that area for the last 3 weeks. We got up stream of them and  throw out the Cajun anchor, tide was strong dumping into Bay La Fourche. We used corks, with Matrix Shad Lemon drop 2 – 2 ½ foot deep, throw up current and pop the cork as it ran along with the current. Oneofthepack not a cork man, so it was not long before I was throwing the beetle, and tight lining it along the bottom. It was not long after that all in the Bay Flat Sr was doing the same thing, it was on,on,on.
The TRICK was to let the lure past you on a 45*, then reel in steady, not to fast but steady, and the Silverwonders would hook itself. We were missing a lot of taps / hits, but the reeling in eliminated the misses and seem to be more action.

LURE DU JOUR:

• Lionel’s BIG delights proved themselves when it came to bottom feeders, (reds, flounders, drum) this is the first time we ever used up all our live bait, we had 75 plus on board. We also had 2 pounds of dead, had about 90% of that left
• Matrix Shad Lemon drop under a cork, put on few in the Bay Flat Sr, but is was no match to the beetle.
• 3” H&H Purple beetle matched up with the H&H ¼ oz round white head w/gold hook, took this honor today, and I hope for the rest of the fall fishing season, let the fun begin.

AREAS / SPOTS / #’S ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot # 22, 25, 58 (35)t,49,48A,46,6,5,15,14,2A,17,21,(13)t, stopped fishing around 1:05 pm, turned the Bay Flat Sr North for a quick run back to the slip, needed to be at Rigolets Mariner for 3:00 PM. If with all this time, ran into a closed Hwy for about 15 minutes, then caught the Chef bridge closed this another 20 minutes, but we made it in time to weight in our catch.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (48) Silverwonders (22) Throw backs
• (7) Reds (3) Throw backs
• (1) Flounder
• (5) White trout
• (7) drum
• (2) Fresh water cat
• (1) Channel Mullet (on purple beetle)
• (2) Oyster shells
• (4) Bottoms
• (3) Anchor rope
• (5) Tangled lines
• (1) Bushel of grass
• Got to see Big Ronnie do his famous roll along in the bottom of the Bay Flat Sr, no harm, no foul.
• Some of the best sandwiches, snacks, drinks know to the fisherpersons, Big Mel  (Big Ronnie better half) sure knows how to make a luncheon meat sandwich. She even called to see how Big william wanted his P&J sandwich prepared, now that is what we call dedication  of the ladies of the past, (years gone by) to take care of their mate, thanks again Big Mel.
• Beautiful day on the water with friends, family, and fellow fisherpersons, hope they all had a great trip as our crew did.
• Best fishing trip of my life, until he next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

This not a hard call for today, Big Ronnie stuck in the middle of the Bay Flat Sr, (out of position) Big Jon stuck on the bow, (out of position) Oneofthepack on top of the motor, (wrong angel) Big William in the hot seat, (perfect position and the best angel) Oneofthepack2 managed to run the bases, caught Silverwonders, reds, white trout, drum, flounder, even a channel mullet, and managed to have the red of the day weighing in at 6.11#, so he fisherperson of the day for our crew.

Big T-Doc crew, Big Adrian came in with a 35# plus drum, me think he took first place in rodeo for drum category.

As for rodeo, me think the drum is the only fished that placed for Team Jo-Jo, but there is always next year, and we have a hold year to prepare for it.

SUGGESTION:

Get an early start, be in your spot before daylight, (suggest where Oak River dumps into Bay La Fourche, just pass (100 feet) 45* off island on your left as you enter Bay La Fourche, anchor up use two anchors to keep the boat parallel to the birds so all abroad can have the correct position and angle to fish them.

This evening Loveofthepack and Oneofthepack will take grandkidsofthepack to French Quarter, in hunt to see Voodoo Queen Marie Levaue and
for coffee and doughnuts , not sure of time frame, so tomorrow trip in question.

Sure hope you and your crew get out on the water, because the conditions are perfect, I know we will soon be back on the water, until then:

Good Fishing

Greetings From New Orleans ,
Bill , I believe the name of the boat
tied off in Lake Ponchetrain , just west
of the mouth of the Tchefuncte Rive is
the M/V Freedom , which I was told
was formerly owned by the Dravo
Sand and Gravel Company . I was
laso told that when the Crounse Co.
came to the lower river they
purchased the boat but I am not sure
who purchased it fro them and
attempted to make it a " Bed &
Breakfast " , on the lake . I was also
told that Hurricane katrina damaged
and partially sunk the Freedom and
thats how she came to the state she is
in . Hope this may answer a few of
your questions .
Smooth Sailing !

In response to Mike LOOKING FOR A LITTLE HELP! Venice Honey Hole is correct! Captain John can actually take up to 20 people and the more that goes on the charter trip, the less cost per person,

The Cougar is run by Capt. John Coulon. Delta Blue Sport Fishing, Inc. Venice Marina Venice, LA 70041 New Orleans: 985-657-7687 Other Phone: 504-912- 8907 I have been fishing with Captain John and it was awesome! The boat is equipped with a cabin that features tables to sit at, AC, A place to get out of the sun, and ladies a real toilet! www.rodnreel.com/coulon

Delta Blue Sport Fishing, Inc. Venice Marina Venice, LA 70041 New Orleans: 504-912-8907 Click here to contact Delta Blue Sport Fishing, Inc. Since Capt. Stanley Coulon started the business more than 35 years ago, his family's name has been synonymous with some of the top offshore guides in Louisiana Sport Fishing. Although Coulon's Sport Fishing recently changed the name of their business to Delta Blue Sport Fishing, Inc., Capt. John Coulon remains dedicated to the same ideals that his father held. It's all about catching fish... BIG FISH ...and knowing where to go to catch them. The Gulf of Mexico is a haven for the most desirable fish species like Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, Grouper, Blackfin Tuna or monstrous Yellowfin Tuna, Bull Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) and King Mackerel. Let's not forget the trophy Bull Redfish, Pompano and Spanish Mackerel that also call these waters home. The region called the lower Mississippi Delta is widely known as possibly the most prolific marine estuary around the world. And today, veteran sport anglers in every continent are calling it a world-class fishing destination. "There's no question about it. It is one of the best areas in the world," said Capt. John, of Empire, who over the years has become sort of a South Louisiana fishing icon. "There's just so much here to offer. We've got it all." Even Coulon's two boats have risen to near- legendary status. The Early Bird and The Cougar, custom-built, U.S.C.G. approved, 46- and 47-foot steel and aluminum-hulled vessels, have been involved in many of the most productive fishing excursions on the entire Gulf Coast. These classic fishing boats were custom built in Louisiana. Capt. John's fleet represents two out of the three largest fishing boats in the Empire area and can accommodate up to twenty anglers per boat at a time. For years, Coulon's Sport Fishing has been the place for friends, neighbors, clubs, small businesses and large corporations, to book fishing trips. Coulon and his crew will take customers to fish for almost any species. If it swims, then they know how to catch it.

A great part of the trip is when you return, you can take a break enjoy a beer at the marina while your fish are being cleaned and bagged, A great charter for a large group. Highly recommend Captain John Coulon for a large group. Hope this helps!

Baton Rouge , LA USA

IN RESPONSE TO MIKE BARBIER:

I'm very sorry for your loss. All of us who enjoy
the outdoors have had friends and family that
showed us the ropes and shared their skills, only
to pass on when life's journey was complete.
More importantly, they shared the love of the
outdoors and the camaraderie that goes with it.  

I had been lucky enough to have a few good
fishing and hunting buddies that I honorably
could call true friends before they left this world.
Every time I'm in either the woods or the marsh I
miss those guys and wonder how many limits
they have helped me catch or how they have
kept me safe in the woods or on the water....

Never let your brothers memories fade. And pay
him homage every time you have a chance to
honor his memory. It's the best way to keep his
spirit close to you.

Waterfowl Specialist Guide Service

Delacroix Island, LA USA

Waterfowl Specialist Guide Service is now scheduling
hunts for the 2014- 2015  duck season. We are
excited to see what this year has in store for us, with
the marsh lands healthy and plenty of Hydrilla and
Widgeon grass, its sure to be a great year. Make sure
to come experience some of the finest duck hunting
Southeast Louisiana has to offer with St. Bernards
own Capt. Jimmy Corley.

The evening before each hunt we scout out all
properties in search of the best place to hunt that
holds the most birds to insure for a great time and
hunt.

All hunts are done from Gator Trax boats with pop up
blinds so you won't get cold,wet or muddy, and we
also have stationary blinds for when the birds get
educated late in the season. Also we have the camp
available with an option of some of Louisiana's finest
cajun cooking. The camp sleeps six people and has a
big walk around porch so you can relax and enjoy the
view of our pristine marsh lands.

Or if you would like to do some fall fishing now is
the time to do so. With the trouts moving inshore and
the abundance reds in the marsh, October makes for
a phenomenal month to fish.

The dates or set for November 15 through December
7 and December 20 through January 25 If you would
like to schedule a hunt or fishing trip, you can
contact Capt. Jimmy Corley by phone at (504)258-
4431,or by email at cap.jimmy.corley@gmail.com.

New Orleans, LO USA

Folks, I don't post many reports but felt compelled to post this one. This past Saturday I lost my mentor, my hunting partner my oldest Brother George Barbier. George loved the outdoors from Duck hunting and fishing to shrimping and crabbing. But most of I think just being out in the marsh or on the lake and enjoying the outdoors. George was a champion Duck caller(New Orleans Jr. champion 1967) and Goose champion 1976. I enjoy reading the reports daily on rodnreel and I get dismayed when people snipe each other or complain about the lack of fish or Ducks. As I sat next to George as he passed I wished for just one more day to be out in a duck blind or in the boat fishing.  Thanks for letting me share my story.  Mike Barbier

Capt. Tommy Pellegrin

Houma, LA USA

Paul, Matt, and Bambi wanted to catch some trout so I met them at the camp in Four Point and off we went in the wind looking for trout. I was on a mission to get to the same spot my team won the rodeo the last weekend but the trout kept popping up everywhere. This delayed me a little and the high winds and dirty water didn't help either. The good thing about all of this is that the Berkley Rattle Shrimp were doing their job putting fish in the boat at every stop. Only these weren't the bigger trout I wanted. Reefs where bayous dump into bays are the ticket for the larger trout right now. Bird trout are usually smaller. Finally we get to the right spot and its on cast after cast it is keeper trout with no need to measure. Mix in a ton of sand trout to weed through and the box is filling with specks. If it were just specks the box would fill faster but who complains when there is a fish on the line every cast. When the tide slowed it was all sand trout so off we went looking around. Stopped on one point for a red and Bambi hooks into a big fish, that ended up being her largest fish ever. A big old bull drum. Paul added a red and with the wind screaming we couldn't find any clean water to fish so we started back. On the way back I decided to try one more reef and it payed off with about 20 more specks. Same deal as before, right where a bayou dumps into a bay over a reef. Berkley Rattle shrimp in Coastal Candy color under a cork about 18 to 22'. We ended up with 65 beautiful trout and one red in high winds and dirty water. Call Capt Tommy Pellegrin for your day on the water.

Looking for a little help.  We have 7

Waterfowl Specialist Guide Service

Delacroix Island, LA USA

Waterfowl Specialist Guide Service is now scheduling
hunts for the 2014- 2015  duck season. We are
excited to see what this year has in store for us, with
the marsh lands healthy and plenty of Hydrilla and
Widgeon grass, its sure to be a great year. Make sure
to come experience some of the finest duck hunting
Southeast Louisiana has to offer with St. Bernards
own Capt. Jimmy Corley.

The evening before each hunt we scout out all
properties in search of the best place to hunt that
holds the most birds to insure for a great time and
hunt.

All hunts are done from Gator Trax boats with pop up
blinds so you won't get cold,wet or muddy, and we
also have stationary blinds for when the birds get
educated late in the season. Also we have the camp
available with an option of some of Louisiana's finest
cajun cooking. The camp sleeps six people and has a
big walk around porch so you can relax and enjoy the
view of our pristine marsh lands.

Or if you would like to do some fall fishing now is
the time to do so. With the trouts moving inshore and
the abundance reds in the marsh, October makes for
a phenomenal month to fish.

The dates or set for November 15 through December
7 and December 20 through January 25 If you would
like to schedule a hunt or fishing trip, you can
contact Capt. Jimmy Corley by phone at (504)258-
4431,or by email at cap.jimmy.corley@gmail.com.

In response to Mike Binnings

Mike,
We recently bought a condo on Perdido Key, so I am still learning the area. The bay side there is similar to Destin. In both areas, there is a pretty strong annual run of flounder in the October to November time frame.  In addition to gigging, you should be able to pick them up on live shrimp and plastics like we do here.  Trout there are a bit more difficult.  The numbers caught are much lower than here, but there are a lot of quality fish.  When it's hot, we generally fish the dock lights at night with live shrimp.  I've found that it can be easy to catch 1 fish, then the others seem to get spooked and not bite for half an hour.  Bottom line is that you may have to move around a lot.  During the day, you should be able to fish the points and flats near deep water and pick-up a few.  I use mostly the Hybrid plastics and top water baits.  The locals tend to always use live shrimp....I haven't tried croakers on a Carolina rig yet, but that should be the best bet for big fish.  If you can get offshore, you should be able to pick-up some Mangroves.  They like live shrimp too.  It's also easy to get a bunch of pinfish on the grass flats for bait.  There is a good tackle shop about a mile east of the Destin bridge that should be able to help.  Good Luck!

After umpteen years of enjoying your reports I have a need to post a question. I am taking my grandchildren fishing in the back bay behind Destin to Santa Rosa Fla. I am renting a boat, no charter, in early Nov. Does anyone know of any spots, sites, baits, etc that could get me on some specs? Fishing all my life around Lake Borgne won't help me pull off a miracle in Fla where I have never fished. Any help is appreciated. Is there a RodReel.com over there?

thanks-Mike (Covington)

Wife and I made the slightly choppy,  ride to the Biloxi marsh Monday (10-20). Passed under the Rigolets car bridge at 5:36 and started castin in Lake Eugenie about 6:30. Bite started slow but as soon as the tide line showed itself the trout started hittin the box. Just like last week the shrimp were jumpin for their lives and we tried  to help them get away as much as we could. Soon as the bait hit the water the cork disappeared. The fish were a little bit bigger this week so fewer throwbacks made the box look better in a hurry.The bite lasted about an hour and then the shrimp and specks left us sayin,”which way did they go?“ Headed toward crooked byu with 17 trout in the ice.Tried at CB and Lake Eugenie without a bite, short run to Muscle Bay and the bite was on again. Made 3 shoreline drifts ,one of which was a request by wife,(nicer fish than my choices) and the counter showed 32. Made a couple of moves toward stump, but didn’t find the bite at any
spots in that area. Decided the last stop would be cutoff, good or bad, worked a shoreline for a few hundred feet without a bite and just about ready to call it a day and  Sue caught a nice spec and started the bite and number 50 hit the box at 1:59pm.Highlight of the day, Sue makes a nice throw to a point and after a couple of pops of the cork BAM, drag puller on, “Nice red” she says,, when it got close to the boat the red turned into a speck, after a great landing net job(if I must say so myself) a 20 “ speck is floppin around the floor, two fist bumps and a photo opp later ,back to the 12-15 inchers.Had a great catchin day with my favorite fishin partner, weather could not have been better, light ENE wind and tide moving all day(not sure weather it was fallin or comin in, looked different each area we fished, clarity 9 on 1-10 scale, water temp 68-70. Most fish caught on matrix Tiger bait and Lemon head under a poppin cork.Ended the trip with
50 specks 12-20 inches
1 white 12” max.
3 -14 “ reds ( throw backs)

Nice picture.

I have heard several reports similar to yours. Seems like a No-Brainer on where to Launch in Delacroix.

I use the Second Launch on the Right, which opens up directly into Bayou Gentilly.

Sweetwater is the right name for the Marina that provides access for small boats as well as large ones to inside fishing during the fall months.

Excerpts from article by Bob Marshall, back on October 21, 2011

I thought this article was interesting, considering it was 3 years ago, in October.

Excerpts from Bob Marshall's article and comments with Captain Jack Payne of Sweetwater Marina:

"Everything seems to be a little late this year -- the trout started showing up here a little late and, for that matter, they were still catching some outside," Payne said. "But inside fishing has been picking up every week, and this cool front will really kick things off all over the inside."

That includes spots like Four Horse Lake, Lake Fausan, Lake Batola, Lake John, Little Lake, Pointe Fienne and Oak River. Round Lake sits in that pantheon, and is worth the visit for several factor.

Small boat anglers can reach it through protected water, running down Bayou Terre aux Beoufs to Crooked Bayou and then around the southern end of Four Horse. Sitting on the southern end of those interior lakes and bays it sometimes gets less attention. The numerous bayous that empty from its shorelines make it a crossroads for currents that carry bait, and trout. Its bottom seems to be covered with oyster reefs. And, finally, Round Lake's new shape means it has plenty of "corners" to fish.

"You just look for one of those corners where the current is running past a point of the marsh," Payne said. "Put the boat against the marsh, cast out into the current, and you'll probably find trout."

Fishing it Pick a day when the wind is less than 10 mph and the tide range is over 7/10. Enter the lake at a slow speed, move about 25 yards off the shoreline and run parallel looking for those points wrapped by a current line. If you see one with signs of bait, even better. Anchor the boat about 20 yards outside that current line, cast the bait up-current and work them back with the flow. Give each spot 10 or 15 minutes before moving on to the next location. Some days you'll find the specks stacked in one location, but others they'll be spread around along all those points all the way around the lake. Don't ignore the reds. This broken shoreline is perfect for them, too.

And remember, Round Lake is a good starting point because it's surrounded by other good winter fishing water. Four Horse is on its northern side, and Pato Caballo is just to the east.

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

         TEAM JO-JO

         Sunday Trip

Saturday Big Curtis called just to see how things where gong, we did a little talking about fishing and what the action looked like, we agreed to talk next week. But after thinking about it all day Saturday, and our schedule for the up coming week, could not resist a Sunday trip. So Oneofthepack called Big Curtis back too see if he and Big May wanted to face the wind gods and make a trip early Sunday morning, yes says he.

SIGNS:

• Daughterofthepack took Loveofthepack and Oneofthepack out Saturday (early birthday present) for brunch, well talk about an unique place (The Country Club) to have brunch, (food was so/so) entertainment was just as unique as the food. All and all in was a great way to spend some one on one time with daughterofthepack.
• No wild life sightings
• Not many boats along Hwy
• Not many boats in gas stations
• Waffle House void of fisherpersons
• Met up (Waffle House) with my nephew Mike, he and other nephew (Jeremy) going out to try Bayou Bievenue area, seems the birds and the Silevrwonders have been very active at Bayou Thomas.
• Bay Flat Sr looked surprise to see us, after loading her up it was on to Lionel’s for some go juice, and dead bait.

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• E.N.E W. wind 15-18 steady all day long
• Sunny
• Cool to mild temps, great fishing weather
• Water temp in Lake  76F
• Tide coming in, looked like it got stronger as the day went along
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 2 to 3 minus, not good, best looking water was in Bay La Fauche.
• We did not get an early start, me think we missed the bites, was in first spot by 7:15 AM.
• 1.5 to 2 foot rollers in Bay La Fauche, thought we where going to tip over, we had 2 anchors out and the waves where coning from behind us, started to get sea sick did I.


TECHNIQUE:

• Game plan was to run to Bay La Fauche, as word was the area loaded with Silevrwonders feeding under the birds, this was a good choice, as the area was loaded with birds, most sitting on the water. We found 2 flocks hovering over the Silevrwonders, and managed to catch 90% of fish out of them. But the winds made it difficult for the birds to stay up, and/ or maybe the bait stop moving.
• Plan “B” was to stay out  in areas we don’t normally fish and see where we could find better looking water
• It was definitely a popping cork day, caught a few on tight line, but corks was the order of the day
• Throw out and pop the cork once or twice then reel them in
• We anchored up once but the bites stopped so we went back to moving
• Silevrwonders seem to be stacked up under the birds.
• Found (2) locations with birds, but the wind was so strong it seems the birds got tired and where just sitting on the water waiting. We did fish a couple of flocks where the birds where just sitting on the water, not much action.
• Fished in 4 to 6 feet of water all day

LURE DU JOUR:

• Matrix Shad Lemon Drop matched up with H&H ¼ oz round white head w/gold hook
• Purple H&H 3” betel matched up with H&H ¼ oz round white head w/gold hook.
• Both shared in the action equally


AREAS / SPOTS / NUMNERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Started out at 27, then straight to Bay La Fauche, Oyster Bayou, an areas I never been in before, was surprise to see some of the Bays had some depth to them, found a lot of good looking spots that we will have to add new numbers to mapofthepacks inventory for future use and research. On the way in we fished spot #8,6,5,14,15,17, 21,22,23,24 and 2A called it a day around 1:40 pm, turned the Bay Flat Sr north for a quick, and not so bad ride across Little Lake back to the slip.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (10) Silevrwonders, 4 throw backs
• (1) White trout
• (1) Croaker
• (1) drum
• (1) extra poles
• (3) Tangled lines
• (1) bushel of grass
• Got to fish some new / and old areas looking for cleaner water, and some defined tide movement.
• Making a trip w/crew Big Curtis & Big May, Big may wanted to go to that spot where we caught a 22# plus Big Eye Carp; she said she really enjoyed eating him. Now we know how we can get ride of some of them their carp, just call Big May.
• Missed the Saints game, BIG reward was this
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.


FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

* If we included cat fish, and variety of fish, Big May would walk away with this honor. And if we counted the missed bites, (keep telling Big Curtis I’m from Missouri) Big Curtis would have taken the honors. And if Oneofthepack could have caught a few more Silevrwonders on the trip, could have been me. But the true fisherperson of the day was the Seagulls, they where all over those little delights on the surface of the water.

SUGGESTIONS:

They saying goes “Early bird gets the worm” me think this is what is needed now, you need to be in the spot just before daylight, look for the birds, and fish hard when you are on top of them.

It would also be nice if you have a trolling motor, and even nicer if it works, this way you can keep up with the bait and birds as they move down / up current.

Schedule for the week looks great, Monday work, Tuesday work, Wednesday fishing, Thursday work / fish???, and Friday fishing St Tammany HBA fishing rodeo, weight in from 3 – 4 PM (I think) stop by and see all the fish that will be weighted in it should be a real good showing of what’s biting out their right now.

See all you fisherper4son at the rodeo, until then:

Good Fishing

Fished Delacroix Saturday with 3 boats and  6
friends. This is a trip we do quite often. Our boat
ended up with about 15 keepers and many,
many short trout. Good fun, good friends........

We launched at Sweetwater, a great bunch of
guys. They help you launch and recover your
boat and always have good advice about where
they are biting. Only problem today was that they
were out of live shrimp. No biggie, I usually fish
with artificial anyway. I had paid for my launch
already but I thought I might check down the

CAPT MARK MUNSON JR. FIRST CAST CHARTERS

Shell Beach, LA USA

THIS IS WHAT FALL FISHING IS ALL ABOUT!!!!

    The last week and a half have been flat out
awesome!  Beautiful stable weather and pretty
water everywhere.  The fish must have noticed
because they were willing to eat at a moments
notice!  They've been gobbling up CAMPOS
SHRIMP as if it were their last meal and it was.  

    The tide has been a slow dribbly one the last
few days so we have been fishing any choke or
bottleneck spots we can find to give a little
assist.  Trout in the middle and reds on the
shore.  Biloxi marsh and the shores and drains in
lake borne have been very consistent.   If you
get into some mixed fish with smaller trout throw
a couple of old school sparkle beetles under a
cork while keeping at least one guy on shrimp.
They've been knocking the snot out of them.  
Chartreuse and clear in 2.25 inch have been the
ticket.  I know GUS's TACKLE in Slidell has a ton
of them in stock.  The lighter jig heads have
worked better lately as well.  They let the lure
float around and move more under the cork
when your pop it than the heavier ones giving
you more action.

    Now for the shameless self promotion and
pictures!  

    ZACHRY CONSTRUCTION had two groups
come down the last couple of weekends and it
was a knockout.  Some of the guys came in for
the first time and a few of them had never fished
saltwater before and some never at all.
Congratulation to big Ty on his first redfish and
the other 18 he caught that day as well.  He's a
quick learner!   These guys couldn't believe what
we have down here in southern La for fishing.

    We caught everything under the sea.  Bull
reds marsh reds puppy drum flounder
sheepshead hundreds of trout and a couple of
bass to boot.  After cleaning all of there fish up
for them we packed them up and shipped them
back them.  A few of the guys booked some trips
on their own at the lodge next month before they
left and we look forward taking them and their
families.

    I have some dates available for the end of
October as well as some in November.  This is
the most comfortable time of the year to be on
the water and the fishing is a horn of plenty.  If
you have any questions on pricing for the charter
or just the lodge itself please call me personally
at 504-234-0775.  I can send you some pictures
of the lodge  so you can see before you book.  
You won't be disappointed! If you want to bring
your own boat you can stay at the lodge and
there's space by the slips to park your boat along
with cleaning tables and electricity to carge
batteries and run knives.  A large cement parking
lot for trucks and trailers across the street and
you can GET A FREE BOAT LAUNCH AT
CAMPOS when you stay with us.

    Just give me one chance to show you why we
say ITS ALWAYS FIRST CLASS FROM THE
FIRST CAST!!  

     Thanks, Capt Mark Munson.   504-234-0775

The pictures say it all!!
    
 I'd like to give a special thanks to the captains that fish with me. You guys really do an exceptional job!!

I had the pleasure of fishing with Cole
and his dad on Saturday, and from the
get go, Cole was nailing those speckled
trout. We were fishing mostly plastic
in the beginning, and then to get on
the redfish bite, we started with dead
shrimp.

We only needed 3 more redfish, and when
one came up and bit the cork, but
passed on the shrimp, I knew we needed
another plan. I saw a bunch of finger
mullets swimming right next to the
boat, so I threw the cast net over
them, and 3 mullets later and we were
limited on reds, with a few flounders
and about 7 nice trout.

This is when they told me there was a
"Big Fish" bet with the other boat, for
$20.00 and that Cole has never landed a
Bull Red!!!

We ran for about 5 miles to my secret
Bull Red spot, the water was dirty, but
we had finger mullets, and don't you
know it, the big fish bit on Cole's
line again.

Good times guys,...

Last Friday, the customers cancelled on
us down at the lodge, so my buddy Capt.
Frank and I went on a little killing
mission.

We had a blast.

Captain Jody & Heather

On behalf of Brian and myself I want to THANK YOU for the trip of a life time!

It was an amazing trip, limits of trout and reds before noon and we got back to the dock cleaner than when in left.

We really enjoyed all Heather’s hard work and most of all her witty British humor and accent, she is a real asset to your team.

Both of you made a great fishing day even better by keeping us laughing!

I look forward to my next trip with “Captain Jody and Heather”!

Thanks Again,

Emile Canale

Late report from Fri....Me and a friend
played hookey from work, dropped our
kids off at school and jumped in the
boat to go fishing. Got 100 live shrimp
at Rigolets and made 3 stops in Lake
Catherine, tried Lake Borgne, Polecat
Bend without catching anything. Finally
at about 11:30 we went to Little Lake
by the mouth of Pearl River....first
cast got a 3 LB trout, then it slowed
down so we started drifting the
shoreline and that was the ticket. We
caught 22 keepers, about 15 throwbacks,
but the catch of the day was a 15 inch
croaker...haven't seen one that big in
a long time.  We left them biting at
2:30. Beautiful day on the water and
some fish made it even better.

Fished Saturday out of Bayou Bienvenue for the first time in a long time. Fish with my St. Bernard nephew, sunrise to noon. Hits some drains and points on the east side of MRGO, a few spots in the Bayou, and the rocks at the Violet cut into Lake Borgne at the castle. Live shrimp, dead shrimp, plastic. Had the most luck under a cork, but did catch a 19' trout and a good flounder on the bottom. Total for the day, 15 keeper trout, one big flounder, one keeper drum, one keeper red, various undersize fish of all species, and 3 green trout. A little surprised at the bass. Even saw a small flight of teal.
