Fishing Magician Charters, LLC

This is a two day report. Yesterday Capt. Jason had Ms. Debbie and her nephew fishing with him. They fished the edge of the Breton Sound catching 75 reds and 3 reds. This was not their first time fishing with us and it is always a joy to fish with them. Their pictures are the last two pics.

Yesterday and today, I had the pleasure of fishing with Jim and his family. Yesterday, we fished the edge of Breton Sound for trout and caught 102 specks and 2 reds. The day was really nice. Today was a different story. The wind was blowing about 20 knots and rain was threatening, so we decided to fish the marsh. It was a really good move. We caught 20 reds fishing 2' under a popping cork, and got in below the rain.

As you can see the sunrise is beautiful at this time, and the fish are still biting. Days like these are the reason I keep fishing. All fish were caught 2' under a popping cork.

If you want to catch some fish and have some fun, Fishing Magician Charters is the one. Give us a call to book a trip you will never forget.

No doubt it is quite tricky. I've run it
several times in years past. Only been
that way a couple of time since Katrina
and hit bottom pretty good both times. I
prefer the China Pass route or the route
that connects to Bakers Canal just past
Loutre. They all have their issues
though!

In response to Bikernurse

If you follow the northern shoreline in the back canal, you will mostly be okay. Here are the pitfalls:

1) Shallow sections along southern edge...again, follow northern shoreline....except at

2) Lake Machias area. The canal has eroded here, and its shallow on both sides, with a prop-crunching bottom and stranding potential. Best to go slow, feel where deep water is with a stick or paddle. I've included a map.

3) There is also Katrina debris in the canal. Its visible, but keep an eye out and go slow.

4) Be careful around blind turns.

For the first time I would highly suggest

especially taking the route you are

In response to Jazzy Trout

Back when I used to catch trout, if a
boat was passing by on a trout bite that
looked clueless on protocol, I would tell
everyone to flip the bails, put the rods
in a holder and grab a drink. Because
people catching fish would not be
standing around drinking, right? The boat
passes, we then reel in the confused
fish.

Secret Formula

Algiers, La United States

In response to Jazzy Trout

Here's one for you Jazzy, Years ago when "Bay Boats" were just becoming popular, the original Independence Island Reef used to hold thousands of trout. Bari and I are drowning croakers steadily catching 2+ pounders when up comes this Bay Boat. He roars up on the big motor and it slows the bite but doesn't shut it down and we quickly return to catching on every cast. The Bay Boat is now on the trolling motor almost circling where we're casting. Now they are so close we can hear them talking and changing lures trying to find some piece of plastic that these trout will take over our croakers. This has now annoyed Bari to no end and she is about to explain it to them when I say to her, " honey leave these guys alone and what ever I ask you just answer NO"! With a puzzled look on her face she agrees and we continue to catch these 2+ pound trout on almost every cast. The very next fish I catch can be unhooked without damage so I turn and ask her, "hey babe, is this one big enough to keep"? The light goes off in her head and she says loud and clear NO! So I pitch the trout over my shoulder overboard. The Bay Boat can not help to take notice and almost freak out. Well, we repeated it about three more times until the other guys couldn't take it anymore, and they left all peeved. After that day and over the years we had multiple opportunities to repeat that tactic and it worked every time!

Jazzy Trout

Gretna, LA USA

With the weather bad and the fishing light, let's
tell stories. Trying to help ole Wanda girl with her
goal to increase the hits. Ok, I'll start.....what's
your favorite story about someone crashing your
fishing party? About three weeks ago, my pal
Joey and I were pulling in the trout  in Barataria
when here comes a bay boat with four guys
looking like the cast from the movie Deliverance.
Sure enough they see us catching, so what do
they do? Come putting in with their motor right
across from us. Corks not too close but
eventually, I look up and I'll  be damned his cork
is a foot away from mine. I yelled at him and
asked him if I was in his way and did he want me
to move? He caught my tone, sheepishly said he
was sorry and then proceeded to started his
motor and noisily backed away. Needless to say
the bite left with them. It seems this is happening
more often than it used to. Is this behavior more
prevalent than the past and how do you handle
it. Is it more out of ignorance or just nervy? I
really think these guys were more just stupid
than pushy.  Jazzy out.

And on a lighter note......just looked out my
window and it looks like any fish today will be
caught out of the freezer. Anyone who posts a  
report on fishing today has my unmitigated
respect and admiration.  Foots? Is that you?
BTW did not realize that my poll  on drinking on
the water would cause such a fuss. An
unintentional troll, but a very successful troll
nonetheless.

In response to Wanda Stewart Sales and Advertising RodnReel

I'm with you on this on Wanda, I'm sure BB is just joking around, but I have seen/been on similar trips way back in the day. but just to let those know who don't, if the authorities issue you a BUI, they don't just send you on your way. You are cuffed and removed from your boat. I know of people who were stopped by the USCG in Barataria Bay. They were arrested and taken to Grand Isle, locked up overnight and transported to the Gretna jail the next day. No one on the boat was deemed capable of legally operating the boat so it was piloted by one of the USCG crew that was on the RIB and taken to Grand Isle. The remaining occupants of the boat had to rent a room at Sandollar over night and go get the boat the next day from the USCG after proving they were sober!

In response to hookiemonster

Sorry, hookiemonster but had to respond.

I think BB knows the rules! It is just comical when you take a novice like me or a first timer as I once was {fishing}.

We all have different perceptions of what we THINK fishing is.

The first time I was handed an open reel, I had no clue to close the release after casting. Talk about a mess and a dumb blonde look, all in one. it was more like WTF?

And yes, I got all the puns and jokes, and idiot ratings allowed, but I was tough and I was young, many many moons ago!

Here is one for the books.

Two days ago in an AT and T store I handed a young lady a business card and she asked, Do you Fish? The next question was do they serve you wine while you fish? I replied only when I am wearing six inch heels!

So BB I am with you! Laugh learn and teach when you can as Hookiemonster stated.

You guys are the best! You always make my day!

Bill,I'm no lawyer but I think as the Captain of the vessel you are responsible for the passengers.Situation you described.....I may not have left home with this guy.Take the 12 year old and teach him the ropes.
As far as "drinking" while fishing,remember a citation for DWI from the game warden given to the operator of the boat carries the same penalty as one given on the road. You could loose your drivers license.NOT A GOOD THING!

Thanks to all of you, missing those great reports made me go back and retrieve a few pics that have become a favorite of mine. We caught our limit of speckled trout that day out of Venice Louisiana.

The weather was perfect and Captain Louis was a champ at finding them.

It was my first catch at the Redfish, and my lady friends thought it was the bomb of a picture.

Secret Formula, One of the pack, Jazzy trout, All the weekend warriors give me words to live by.

I appreciate ALL the advice and ALL suggestions on how to fish where to fish, and even how to cook the fish.

We all share the same passion for CATCHIN.

The open water is my sanctuary, no matter the heat, the cold,wind,or rain.

At the end of the day, it was worth every minute. If any of you ever have an empty spot on your boat, call me up, Wanda Stewart and Mike Lane will fill it.

So I wish you all a great weekend and if you get stuck inside share some of your favorite photos with RodnReel. or stories,

Special Thanks to Captain Louis for taking Mike Lane and I out CATCHIN. Also to Captain Jack Payne out of Delacroix and Reelseaman who is an avid fisherman when he isn"t working his own business of selling and installing SUNSETTER AWNINGS

You can't beat a Venice Sunset or Sunrise I love them both.

Secret Formula, sorry to hear about your boat and the missing part, but I would tend to be on the side of the culprit if I read your last report correctly. Sometimes the boat needs a break as well as the owner. And I believe the culprit is making a strong statement about liking your company.

Your boat will still be there next week, enjoy your weekend and have a beer or two for me.

My boat is 24ft CC 22' and neew 3ft water to be safe. Is this route good, I have a great GPS/Mapping System to keep track of my track. Open for advice, Thanks.

Hit the Rigolets, headed for byu Biloxi and didn’t slow down till I reached the mouth of the byu. Planed to start where I left off last week in a small canal off the main byu. So much bait and calm shoreline changed the plan to fishin points, pockets and drains headin toward false mouth. Minnows flyin, shrimp jumpin ,birds divin, fish bustin on the surface, I got the shakes just watchin. Started chunkin TOP PUP and had blowups right away, but no hookups. Finally snagged one, ladyfish, after that it was a ladyfish every cast, I wasn’t calling them ladies. Switched to gold spoon and on the third cast to a pocket 25” red hit the box. Fished all the way to the rig off false mouth and had 4 reds in the box, some thing about the shore line reds , they don’t give up as quick as the pond reds. Had 2 break offs, one because I didn’t follow Vito’s advice, RETIE OR REGRET, I knew when the red previous to this one went in the box that I should retie since the spoon was way past his  mouth, but I didn’t and DAMN. Second break off I casted out to a tide line 50 or so feet out and as soon as the spoon hit the bottom a freight train came by got it in its  mouth and never slowed down, end of gold spoons in inventory. Made my way into some broken marsh and managed  to get a few more fish, the wind was crankin and I spent more time with my bait in the marsh than in the water, desperate to catch 1 more red and head home before the purple sky toward the south got any closer, I made a few more casts toward a small opening to a pond and again my windage calculation was off and in the weeds it went, now I’m talkin out loud to myself, reeled  in and felt the line was frayed from the marsh grass , but made a perfect cast and before the cork had settled, bam, huge wake and cork disappears, fish made a 3 foot run and ,RETIE OR REGRET, sky darkened, and rumblin started, so I decided to make the long rough ride back across lake Borgne. Ride back was actually not as bad as anticipated, and only the entire right side of me was all that got wet. Water in Lake Borgne is as good as I have seen in a long time, clean down 3-4 ft, and judging from the spray on the ride home, fairly salty, water temp was about 84 degrees and the tide was falling early and incoming later on. Higher in the marsh than last week. Started with top pup and switched to gold spoon, then to red or purple SHU-SHU ( lady fish and 1 red love um.) Finished  with dead shrimp under a popping cork. Gold spoon was the hit of the day, just didn’t bring enough of them. Windy and cloudy conditions kept the heat to a comfortable level. Finished this trip with:
4 reds 20-25”
1 drum-18”
2 specks 12-14”
3-4 small throw back reds 12”
1 hardhead
5-10 ladyfish landed, 10 lost at the boat.

Can’t believe my much anticipated fishin day is over already, oh well, always next week.

Pics to follow at cleanin tomorrow.

Wow, more Texans. It was another great trip with
wonderful people from Texas. Great conversations
with Jeff sharing about Texas great economy. And
Here fishing in Venice, La enjoying scenery of our
coast, marsh, and bays as well.

Alligators are out, and the marsh is green getting
ready to give up its seed for teals and duck season
to come. September teal season (6) per person and
speckled trout (25) per person make a great cast
and blast along with (5) Redfish per person.

Two days of fishing gave Jeff and his partner an
ice chest of fillets. Day one, Capt Preston put them
on bull redfish and young redfish as well. Then
magrove snappers were a bonus.

Day two, we had a small window to fish before the
down pours. First stop we had their 10 redfish in
20 minutes and 4 mangrove snappers. We then
headed for a calm waters, put on the rain gear,
and they caught my limit of redfish. We stopped at
an oil platform and Jeff could not believe the
varieties of fish that can be caught when fishing
those.

Redfish are hot and close, trout moving in the
Mississippi River and teal season is second week in
September. Wahoo!! blast and cast time!!

It was an honor serving men who serve our
country this past weekend. It was an honor to be
able to participate in Wounded Warriors at Cypress
Cove Marina. A big thanks to all who participated
and worked hard to serve these guys in
appreciation.

These men who risked and still risk their lives for
our freedom deserve this. I had a great time
fishing and talking with Dustin and the rest of the
guys. About their sacrifices and #1 catching fish
that day. Big specks made it on the board. biggest
redfish under 27", and nice bull croakers hittin 1-
2 lbs. Every stop we made we caught fish. They
were really wanting to get on the board for biggest
fish and they did.

Then getting back to the Marina and sharing all
the fish stories with everyone was exciting. I can't
wait to do it again next year. And thanks to all
those out there who I've never met for risking your
lives for our freedom.

Hopedale/Delacroix, LA USA

TOUGH DAY AT THE OFFICE…

I had the pleasure of fishing with some more Mississippians from the Meridian area. Butch Stuart, Steven and Tyler Lacy, and Gary Lofton. We started out in the black bay area getting on a good trout bite off the bat. The crew had a few tangles and we couldn’t keep them going. Headed out in the Sound there after and got on another good bite sliding in behind Capt. Mark who was finished up and headed for the house. We sat there and burned up a bunch of bait as the crew had trouble keeping them on the line. Tried a few treble hooks to no avail. Seemed like everything was working against us. Went through 350 bait and at the end of the day the guys boxed 41 trout. You win some and you lose some, but we still had a bunch of fun!

All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green Omen and Envy Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on live shrimp under corks.

The books have already been opened for this coming fall season! Clients are already booking as far out as December. Come enjoy some of the most action packed fishing of the year! We’ve had a phenomenal summer thus far and expect this Fall to be right on track. BOOK YOUR OCT/NOV DATES NOW!!! Come see why we have such a repeat clientele and keep our groups coming back!

"Pete"

LaPlace, LA USA

PLEASE READ A LETTER WHICH I MAILED TO ALL LOUISIANA REFINERY CEOs REGARDING AVAILABILITY OF NON ETHANOL GAS IN LOUISIANA

I mailed the letter to each CEO of all crude oil refineries which are currently operating a refinery in Louisiana.

Especially note the paragraph about what I learned about non ethanol gasoline availability in Nebraska and Iowa. These two States DO NOT have a single refinery in their States, AND, they are the largest volume manufacturers of ethanol in the Country, BUT, they offer their consumers BOTH ethanol AND non ethanol gasoline at EVERY station in their States. I first learned this when a friend and I attended the NCAA Baseball College World Series in Omaha in 2009.

The letter is found on my website's "Pete's Articles" page at

www.PeteLandrysRealGas.com

AND, please CONTINUE to sign up for the Petition if you have not already done so.

THANKS for your support in this important cause!

Pat Fitzpatrick

Slidell, LA USA

Took off work today to take advantage of the higher water and salinity from the east wind. Calm at sunrise, so ran down Lake Borgne from Shell Beach. Found the reds aggressive in cuts and indentations.....still scattered but no doubt when one was interested. This is more like it should be.....glad to see it. Used live shrimp and market shrimp for a limit plus a couple more for fun.

Lots of trash fish (pinfish, ladyfish), which is typical for late August. No trout bumps, drum, or sheephead....so took it the marina early. Used the remaining live shrimp for bass off Campo's dock....and later for bass near my house in the Eden Isle's canal. Small but fun, although one bucketmouth did crash the scene.

Thanks to Reel Seaman for the fishing trip last
Thursday, really had a great time, I am still upset
over the loss of my flounder. I don't blame any one

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

            TEAM JO-JO

Oneofthepack was in need of a first mate, Big Ronnie calls to see how I’m doing, what you doing Thursday says I, whatever you want says he. Let’s take a ride down to our Disney World known as Delacroix Island and drop off the Bay Flat Sr, she just had a face lift and is rearing to go. Says I, do you want to make a fishing trip out of it, whatever you want says he, bring the poles says I and meet me at Waffle House for 5:00 AM.

SIGNS:

• Big Earl and the crew of Bayou Outboards completed the 15 items I needed them to do on the Bay Flat Sr, and in a very quick time, Big Earl thanks, please extend my thanks to you crew to, all went well today
• Easy to find first mate
• Lights on Bay Flat Sr trailer works
• Waffle House still has great breakfast, requested y create a dish called Oneofthepack Special, next time you fisherperson make it to Waffle House request the “Oneofthepack Special”.
• No boats on Hwy
• No boats in gas stations
• No boats at boat launch, me think only 6-7 went out
• Lionel stills ahs those 15-20 count lively live shrimp, we picked up (50)
• No lead gas still available, filled up both tanks of the Bay Flat Sr
• Idled to Bayou Gently, shot the coals to the old girl, she jumped out of the water and ran like a doe running from a heard of bucks.
• Big Ronnie did not break any poles, but he did drop rod & reel over the side (12 feet of water) Big Ronnie said it was either the pole for him.
• 3” H&H purple beetle back in form

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• Partly cloudy
• Mild temps then hot temps
• E.N.E wind calm, than 6-10 mph
• Tide falling
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 4 plus, not bad at all
• Water temp 84.3F

TECHNIQUE:

• Anchor up fish Carolina rig w/live shrimp
• Cast & retriever
• Little early in the year, but conditions where such the “OAK RIVER TROLL” was called for, this proved to be a good move (6) reds, (1) Drum, (4) Silverwonders

LURE DU JOUR:

• 3” H&H Purple beetle, matched up with ¼ oz round white H&H head, caught 80% of our catch.
• Lemon Drop Matrix Shad (1) Silverwonders
• Live shrimp, catfish, drum, and (1) red
• Me think the fish where a sacred of the big shrimp, Oneofthepack started pulling the heads off the shrimp, the reds seem to like it better that way.

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot #64, 61, 60 (1)t, 21 had some good bits, settled down here for awhile than started doing the “Oak River Troll”, 21,22,23 back & forth, 17, 2A called it a day around 11:30 AM, turned the Bay Flat Sr north and in no time we were back in the bayou to boat slip.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (5) Silverwonders (2) throw backs (all on lures this a good thing)
• (10) Reds (1) throw back, (5) on H&H purple beetle
• (1) Flounder Purple beetle
• (5) Drum
• (5) Croakers
• (5) Crabs
• (4) Fresh water cats
• (1) Gaff top
• (9) Hard heads
• (1) Anchor
• (2) Bottoms
• (3) Sticks
• (3) Bushels of grass
• (1) ROD & REEL, (Oneofthepack caught it w/H&H purple beetle)
• Learned that live shrimp don’t live long without an aerator, we had a dead battery
• Lots of food, snacks and drinks, thanks Big Mel
• Got a jump on the fall fishing, spending a relaxing morning on the water, made a lot  better being with one of the best fisherperson I know, Big Ronnie (aka Dago, aka Wildman)
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

• Big Ronnie already conceded, but when I caught his rod & reel for him, we high fived, Oneofthepack fisherperson of this day!!!!!!!!!!! Big Ronnie had his bail open when he dropped it, so we had to pull all the line off down to the spool before the rod and reel came up.

SUGGESTIONS:

Lure action picking up, but I would still bring along some of  Lionel’s “BIG DELIGHTS” for offerings to the various fishes out there. The water looked real good, you good see the lure down 10-12”, and  it did not have that brown look. Saw two shrimpers butter flying in Little Lake (good sign) it should start turning on soon inside 3 – 4 weeks, maybe more. Oneofthepack theory is that of the Louisiana oyster, fishing only good during months with an “R” in it.

Familyofthepack off to Florida for the weekend holiday hope to be back on the water early next week and to see all you fisherperson out ands about, until then:

Good Fishing

Team Jo-Jo & Oneofthepack

P.S.S.

Oneofthepack does not bring , (don’t mind if crew does) drinks, beer, alcohol, snacks, eats, smokes, (especially smokes) and I’ m thinking real hard about searching crew and having them leave all their cell phones in the truck.

Smoking is the worst, on a fresh bright new morning take in deep breath of fresh air and BAM everything is destroyed as the smoke passé by me.

Cell phones no use for them, when the crew gets on them it is time to go.

Not a serious fisherperson am I, but a catcherperson that is a different story
