DDI MARINE

Kenner, LA USA

DDI MARINE invaded Cocodrie, La. again today with 2 boats again from Cocodrie Inside Charters ! The boss Paul Dunn fished with Capt. Stu Scheer, and I fished with Capt. Mike Ledet. 2 stop shopping for both boats. Limited out with 250 Specks for both boats combined. We were finished by 8:30am and we beat all of that heat.
The specks are everywhere down there right now. We fished over some reefs using H&H cockahoe minnows. We were catching 2 at a time.
Great time was had by all.
Both Captains are nice and make sure you have fun and get some fish. Give them a call at Cocodrie Inside Charters the fishing is hot down there right now.

Shell Beach, LA USA

ONE STOP SHOPPING…..

I had the pleasure of fishing with Tommy, Bobby Leblanc, and Drew Davis with Mainstream Marketing. We headed out, set the anchor over, and it was KATY BAR THE DOOR!! Fish were coming over the gunnel on all sides of the boat. It didn’t matter where you casted. By 730 am we were headed back to the house with 100 nice trout in the box in time to beat the heat!

All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green Omen and Envy Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on Campo’s live shrimp under corks and some on MIRROLURE She Dogs.

What an outstanding year so far! Fishing is HOT as the weather!! I am booked up now through the remainder of September and NOW BOOKING FOR THIS FALL SEASON. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE GETTING ON THE BOOKS!!!!

Come see why we have such a repeat clientele and keep our groups coming back! Some people tell you about all the fish they catch…our pictures prove it. NO FISH NO PAY GUARANTEE!!

New Orleans / Empire / Buras, LA USA

QUICK & EASY THIS MORNING! BIG TROUT FISHING AT ITS FINEST!

We had Bill, Don, & Bobby from Madison, MS on board this morning for day two of their stay with us. WHAT A MORNING IT WAS!

We left out of the Delta Marina in Empire, LA early this morning with the weather looking perfect, light wind with an incoming tide.

We headed out to big water to fish big trout. One stop was all it took this morning as we got the fish on a steady bite. Using live shrimp for bait we boated and boxed 100 beautiful Speckled Trout up to 4lbs. in size by 9:30 am.

It was another beautiful morning, a beautiful catch and another trip that will not be forgotten.

CHECK OUT OUR PHOTOS!

A BIG THANKS TO BILL, BOBBY, & DON! GREAT JOB GUYS!

GREAT JOB BY DECKHAND HEATHER! SHE WAS COVERED IN SCALES, SLIM & FISH BLOOD! GLAD I DON'T HAVE TO WASH THOSE CLOTHES! LOL!

Mid week mid July windy or calm the fishing is
incredible.
This weeks group of young men and lady's showed up
those big red fish.
Coming to Venice after catching trout the day before,
they wanted big reds. And red fish it was, all they
wanted.
Wearing them and the red fish out on a popping cork
in the bays, along the cane reeds in Venice Louisiana.
No doubt this group knew how to fish.
Right tackle, right line and poles, and their
experience, they tore em up.
Had a blast fishing with this group.

Rick Bergeron

Baton Rouge, LA USA

Awesome fishing trip this past Sunday!

Myself, my lovely wife Sandy and one of our great
friends Bonnie had the pleasure of fishing with
Capt. Jody Donewar and his wonderful deckhand
Heather.

We left the dock bright and early, made it to our
fishing spot and watched a beautiful sunrise as the
first big trout was coming in the boat. We made
some great memories watching Bonnie catch all
those fish on her very first fishing trip, ever. Sandy
did a great job ripping some lips too.

Capt. Jody and Heather make a great team and
this is certainly a first class operation. We had
such a great time fishing with them and the limit of
Beautiful Trout and 12 Nice Reds was just an
added bonus.

Big thanks goes out to you guys!!! We look forward
to fishing with you again soon. Till then, be safe
and happy fishing!

FIRST TRIP WITH US FOR ANOTHER GROUP!

We had Bill, Don, & Bobby all from Jackson, MS on board this morning. They are here for two days of fishing with us. These guys love to fish and handle a rod and reel very well.

A big thanks to Capt. Mike Gallo for teaching them well. LOL!

We left out of Delta Marina very early with the weather perfect. The wind was almost dead calm, the tide was coming in just the way we like it.

We fished for big trout in a few spots today never really getting them in a frenzy. At 10:00 am we had 60 big fat Speckled Trout in the Yeti cooler.

We made a move to Redfish Country fishing one spot and easily putting 15 pretty Redfish on ice.

It was another great day on the water with a beautiful catch and lots of laughs.

GREAT JOB BILL, DON, & BOBBY!

IT’S NOT HOW YOU START BUT HOW YOU FINISH…..

I had the pleasure of guiding Michael Matt of Clear Comm Communtications, along with his wife Stacey. Mike fishes with me a couple times a year and has been for the last 10-12 yrs. This time we had to burn a little fuel to find the fish, but when we did they were hungry. Trout were hitting the shrimp like 90 going north. Left them eating up and headed for the barn. Another great day with Mike and his good luck charm!

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

FIRST TIMERS WITH US EXPERIENCE A TRIP OF A LIFETIME!

This morning we had the pleasure to guide Rick, Sandy & Bonnie from Baton Rouge, LA. This was Bonnie's first fishing trip ever. And what a first trip she had!

We left out of the Delta Marina early this morning with the weather looking beautiful, the wind was light and the tide was coming in just the way we like it.

Headed out to Big Trout Country making one stop. From the first cast it was a fish on. It did not take long to get the water chummed up with live shrimp. The Speckled Trout got into a frenzy biting as fast as the lines hit the water every cast. We started fishing at 6:00 am and at 7:30 am the Yeti Cooler had 100 beautiful fish on ice.

Being very early in the morning with the tide still moving we headed for Redfish Country. Made one stop in Redfish Country and boxed 12 Pretty Redfish.

It was a beautiful day, a beautiful catch and one that won't be forgotten.

CHECK OUT OUR PHOTOS FROM TODAY!

BIG THANKS AGAIN RICK, SANDY, & BONNIE!

John

Mandeville, LA USA

Many thanks to Capt Rod with Sea Tow for saving my butt Saturday afternoon.I was coming back in through Joe Brown pass and I guess I wasn't paying attention and I ran hard aground. A kind fisherman tried to pull my 26' Pathfinder off, but no way. I was in ankle deep water. Cell service wouldn't work, so I called the Venice Coast Guard and they called Sea Tow for me. In 2 hours, he had come from Myrtle Grove, launched his boat and was towing me off. Very professional service and because I'm a member, there was no charge. The last time I had to get towed in was 1989 and that's when the Coast Guard would do it for free. I got my money out of my investment on this one tow. Thanks Capt. Rod!!

CAPT PHIL ROBICHAUX CHARTERS

Lafitte, LA USA

IT'S NOT HOW YOU START...

Yesterday I had the pleasure of guiding Mr Joey LeBlanc, his sister Julie, and her son Braden, and husband Mr Phil. I have been knowing Joey and his family since elementary school so I was excited when he booked this trip to celebrate Braden's graduation from high school. The morning bite was non-existent and the west wind was BLOWING hard. Thankfully the guys hung in there and we kept plugging until we hit paydirt at a drain where water was falling and the reds were feeding. The last spot definitely saved the day for us! I'm sure Divine intervention played a major part in us finding this school of fish and I am very thankful! Thanks again to Joey, Julie, Braden, and Mr Phil for a great day on the water and I look forward to a possible fall trip when the trout are back inside and easy to catch.

IF YOU WANT TO BOOK A TRIP WITH LAFITTE'S HARDEST WORKING FISHING TEAM GIVE US A CALL AT 504-689-2006 OR SEND AN EMAIL TO captainphil02@cox.net AND DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT OUR WESITE WHICH IS www.fishwithphil.com.

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

             TEAM JO-JO

Saturday was on us before we knew it, hand no plans, except Big Ronnie (aka Wildman, aka Dago) called Friday to see how we were making out, after talking a little says he what you doing tomorrow, nothing says I, let’s go fishing says he, no problem says I. We to meet up at Team Jo-Jo’s official meeting place Waffle House in Chalmette for 4:30 am sharp.

SIGNS:

• Grandkidsofthepack (Big Burgan (9), Big Ronin (6) and Big Vienne got an honorable mention in the show program) in a play (Tarzan the musical). Familyofthepack had concession duty, Daurghterofthepack made shrimp fried rice, soup, Loveofthepack and Oneofthepack made some Hotamlesofthepack, had a lot of snacks, food, and drinks for the theater goers, to enjoy.
• Play was great
• Hwy 11 marsh on fire west wind kept smoke off Hwy 11 & I-10 but it was sure a sight to see at night time.
• Early start up at 3:15, waffle house at 4:40, after breakfast we loaded up Big Ron’s truck for a lazy ride to the boat slip.
• Bay Flat Sr looked as confused as I did, did not know what day it was weekend, week day they all run together now, but once loaded up and we shot the juice to her she ready to go.
• Made stop at Lionel’s for go juice, (no bait and had ice)
• Off to spot # 23 for a fun morning on the water

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• W.N.W. wind 20-22 mph steady all day, keeping my hair in place was a challenge, not so for Big Ronnie, his 2 hairs stayed low.
• Partly cloudy, their great kept the sub from being direct on us
• Mild temps to warm temps, but not bad
• Water Temp 88.7* F
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 1 plus, in the past this would not be fishable for Oneofthepack, but the action was there.
• Tide rising all day
• Wind direction in opposite directions, not good for Oka River Troll, plus drift speed was 1.3 to 1.6 mph, could not feel the bottom
• Had a few boats in Oak River, and even more on the prowl looking for some action

TECHNIQUE / STRATIGY:

• Early start, be at spot # 23 first, not to happen already had a boat in the area.
• Oak River Troll, no can do wind and current opposite
• Hoover (no anchor) over drop off (wind and tide fighting one another Bay Flat sr just stood still in the water) cast up current work lure back to you along edge of drop off, real slow bounce it every now and then.
• Anchor up cast & retrieve
• No corks
• No bait live or dead

LURE DU JOUR:

One and only 3”H&H purple beetle matched up with H&H ¼ oz. round white head w/gold hook, as the wind picked up switched over to 3/8oz.


AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot # 23 (1)1, (1)r, (1)c stopped fishing at 11:10 am, ran over to talk to Big Pablo to see how he and his crew was making out, then turned north for a quick rough rode in.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (1) Silverwonders throw back
• (1) Red 8.9#
• (1) Little freshwater cat
• (1) Crab
• (2) oyster shells
• (3) popped lines BIG fish
• (3) bites
• (1) ball of rope
• (1) bushel of grass
• Very humbled (Oneofthepack was he)  catching day, see story below
• Great snacks, food, and drinks, thanks to Big Ronnie & Big Mel (Ron’s better half)
• Big Ronnie did not fall down, manage to keep his balance and stay seated.
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

It was a (3) way challenge, (but the other 2 did not know it).

Fisherman, and his Fisherperson had the spot (spot being the operative word) on the north side of Oak River on the drop off, about 13-14 feet water. Their Capt. and first mate must have pulled in 12-14 bull reds 28” and up from about 7:10 am till around 8:40 am, then they slowed down. Oneofthepack was humbled to know end. But every cloud has a Silver lining, all I did was observe, technique, head, lure, boat position, and presentation. These two where definitely fisherpersons of the day.

Coming in w/ a close second was Big Pablo and his first mate Big Cisco, when we stopped by to talk ,(11:10 AM) to them  they had their limits of reds and was working on the Silverwonders, in a school of them they found in Little Crevasse. Big Pablo was reeling in nice Silverwodners when he called us over. Big Pablo has that trolling motor with a built in GPS he had it on anchor, it was doing its job their boat never moved even when we came along side.

As for Oneofthepack and first mate Big Ronnie, Big Ronnie fisherperson of the day on Bay Flat Sr trip, he caught 2 fish to my one.

I only got to bites all day caught 1, and popped line on the other hit me like a freight train, popped 40# power pro, I never had a chance to adjust my rod position and /or get into fighting position, it was a WAM, BAM, thank you loser.


SUGGESTIONS:

Bites where early, second cast Big Ron hooked up, but his 10# test was  no match for Big Red, on my 4th cast hooked up and caught red, then is was a long period between bites, but boat across from us entertain us for an hour or so as they pulled in one after another bull red and released same.

Not only can those two fisherpersons fish, they are real sportsmen too, they had a family in Oak River trying to catch a few, the fisherperson in the boat that was catching called them over, gave then some lures and pointed them in the right direction on where to anchor up. The family caught one for sure and I think they may have had another hook up or two, that great jester sure made that family’s day.

When they shutdown 8:40 or so, you would have swore there was no fish in the area, we stayed till 11:00 am, only had 1 bite. Slow fishing but one fish makes my day especially when the in the 8# up range.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

There’s this to recommend fishing in a fish bowl, you never have to decide where to fish.

Me thinking of making a trip Tuesday, leaving town Wednesday and will be off the water for 6 or more days after that, this not a good sign.

Good Fishing

Response to Sea Bird.          Only note is -- In
the summer of 1969, diesel at  Port Eads was 17
cents.  Seems it did not go up too much til 1977
@ 20 cents.    Sea Bird recalls the
SportsfIsherman chartering out of Venice and
Port Eads, owned and operated by Capt Socko
Gorenflo named " Sea Byrd ".                              
As this is the last day of the G I Tarpon Rodeo,
recalls memory of years ago.            From our
NOBGFC newsletter, FISH TALES, Of August 4,
1965, published by the late Paul Kalman, an Out
Standing Sportsman and one who ably assisted
me in the formation of our Club in 1960.   He
writes -- " Much ado paws made about the 37
Tarpon entered in this years G I T R,   Back in
1947 when the old N O Item newspaper was
sponsoring the S W Tarpon Rodeo, a total of 89
Tarpon were caught in just 2 days.  Also, those
20 Tarpon taken by Dr. Young out of Intracoastal
City were far from being a La record.  In 1946, 3
well -known Orleanians ,  A. Miles Pratt, Captain
Johnny Mathes and Edouard Morgan, boated 36
Tarpon in approximately three hours of fishing
time.  All of this action took place in East and
West Bay and if memory serves us correctly, the
date was sometime in August ".               One
thing for sure, they were all REEL busy Anglers
and helpers boating or releasing this many
Tarpon.          Once more  - Down Memory Lane.
Keep Fishing and have safe returns.   DUTCH

Wind, Wind and More Wind.

West North West Wind, no good for fishing.

We launched out of Joshua's Marina.
1 keeper red and 1 throw back red was all we could muster up.

We used Live Cacahoes that we picked up at Myrtle Grove Marina.

As far as shrimp being small, I heard the shrimp are in transition mode from Brown Shrimp to White Shrimp.

You may need to get extra shrimp due to the size of them for now.

A hard west wind made for a terrible trip this
morning with just a few fish in the boat. FYI stay
away from Rigolets Marina for live shrimp.  I have
bough thousands from there over the years and
this morning was the worst I have ever seen.  They
are all very small, What a waste of money.

To Wallace Trew:  I have not been on the water (fresh or salt) in a long time.  Had to make a trip to the ER room, spending 2 days in the hospital.  After this, did not have the stamina to fish any length of time; & then the snow melt dirtied up the waters and the rest is history.  Give me a call (337-364-4430) & at least we can talk about fishing.

Thanks for your post.

diesel price in 1977, however, Diesel at Port

not gone up much in 8 years of 20 cents in 1977.     
There was a Sportsfisherman, operating out of
Venice-Port Eads, Chartering for off shore marlin

and  Captained by Socko Gorenflo.   well, thats
about all for now.        Oh, our Family moved

Sweetwater Marina, Capt. Jack

Delacroix, LA USA

The fishing has remained steady for the last few
days down here on Delacroix Island at
Sweetwater Marina.  Just like the last few days
the fishing is decent if you are looking for Reds
and Black Drum.  Just grab some live shrimp,
lots of water and gatorade and hit the inside
marshes around Delacroix.  If your looking for
Trout you are probably going to have to head to
the outside. We have heard some reports that
Specs and White Trout are biting where Bayou
Terrabouffe meets Black Bay.  CAPT. JACK'S
FISHING TIP-Leave a little early and head back
in before the peak of the heat for the day, or
maybe make it an evening trip.  We will have live
shrimp for tomorrow, but we only 3000-4000 so if
you are heading down after 7am please call the
bait shop at 342-2368 to make sure we have not
run out. We would love to see you.  So come on
down to Sweetwater, the marina that loves their
customers.   And remember we are the second
launch.

If you are interested in a charter or lodging
please call 504-342-2368.  We are coming up on
one of the best times of the year for fishing, so
don't wait to book.  A smalll deposit will hold your
reservation.  Hope to see you soon.

BREEZY BUT GOOD TODAY!

We had regular Billy Boykin on board this morning with his guest Allen, Shay and their son Matthew all are from Jackson, MS.

We left out of Delta Marina with the wind stiff out the west and it stayed that way all morning.

We made a stop in protected water and found some clean water and Speckled Trout biting. We got a steady bite going and stayed on it putting 45 trout on ice before the wind shut it down . Made a move to redfish country making one stop putting 10 Redfish and two Puppy Drum on ice before calling it a day before it got to hot.

BIG THANKS AGAIN TO BILLY BOYKIN!
