Sweetwater Marina

Delacroix, L USA

We launched quit a few boats today at
Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island.  We had
some anglers scouting for the Redfish
Tournament out of Hopedale or Shellbeach this
weekend and they seemed to do pretty well.  
Trout were biting too with some folks doing really
well.  Overall most seemed to catch a decent
amount of fish today, some caught more and
some caught less, but that's fishing.  If you can
get away you should definetly try come on down

would love to see you.  We have live shrimp.  If

New Orleans, LA USA

Got up this morning not a single chime singing o my front porch. Great the weatherman erred and its not going to be a 10 to 15 mph day. Wrong. By the time I launched from Myrtle Grove the wind was a stiff 10mph.No problem since I was taking out my good friend Sean Wilkerson (of The Bank)I decided i will still try to fish the cat islands. When I got to to what was bay long island the only bite that i could get was Croakers. We persisted and 3 hours later we had 39 trout on ice. When we ran out of shrimp we switched to minnows. When the minnows were gone we switched Matrix shad ultra violet. both the minnows and matrix shad resulted in bigger trout. we then proceeded to bay laurier and caught 2 keeper drum.Most of the trout were caught on live shrimp and there were only 3 throwbacks.The best of all there were no shrimp boats in sight.

Seems like the winds will not give us a break right now.

I purchased a new rod from Puglia's a few weeks back.
It is a Fenwick HMX 6'6" rod
Line rating 4 - 12 lbs
I have used it a couple of times, and it works fine for my fishing needs.
It cast well, so long as not into the Wind.
I got a Shimano Stradic FK HG - Frontdrag spinning reel, Hagane concept to go with the new rod.
Very smooth
Even after a long day fishing, no problem.
Will see how it holds up over the years.

May not get a chance to try it out this week due to the wind forecast.
Stay Safe My Friends.

Sunkist

Shell Beach, LO USA

Fished out of Hopedale yesterday with
Mr Gerald Horst, marine biologist and
author, on board to do a story about
fishing corks and the best way to
utilize them. Headed down the MRGO
only to find much stiffer SE winds
than was forecast. Did manage to get
out to end of long rocks but water
was too dirty. Tried a few stops
along rocks coming back to no avail.
fished some birds, only caught
sailcats. By 10 am only had three
trout. Worked our way further inside
to find calmer and cleaner water and
it was game on. We boated two limits
of specks and couple of reds to boot.
All caught on several different
versions of VersaMaxx corks and live
shrimp three to four feet deep. We
popped them like crazy to get the
attention needed. Tried plastics for
a while(used a voodoo shrimp and a
lemonhead Matrix). They worked but
action was much slower. Back to the
live ones and it was very fast
action, we were spoiled I guess. I
must say they were the largest group
of trout I ever caught this close in.
Averaged 16 inches with a couple over
4lbs. Mr Horst will have a full
writeup with pic's in Louisiana
Sportsman mag sometime soon. Btw,
there were over 30 boats I counted
just nearby the area we fished. I
thought maybe it was Saturday for a
moment!

new orleans, LO USA

Well I'd had enough of dealing with
customers and attorneys and headed out
Monday morning. Got out of BSM just
before sunrise and headed for Treasure
Bay. Diving birds everywhere and more
wind than forecast. Little Tiki doesn't
like wind. Casting under the birds
resulted in sail cats. After 3 I moved
out to the next flock and same slimy
sail cats. Drifted the oyster beds
(moving westerly) along the first
island and damn near lost my rod to the
strike. After 20 plus minutes I finally
netted the 40 inch black drum.
Continuing to drift I spent another
hour fighting 3 more monster black
drum. Took a pic of the last one.

When I got to the point that familiar
tap tap started and the trout were
coming over the side almost every cast.
Unfortunately most were 11 3/4 inches.
An oyster man came up and started
working his beds just upstream and
water clarity dropped to nothing at the
boat and the bite ended. Worked all the
points on the island and moved SE
towards Christmas lake hitting very
point till the current stopped picking
up a few more here and there.

Never having fished the area I decided
to go exploring. Hit every trenasse,
pond and small bayou I could find and
get into taking notes on future
possibilities. Caught some rat reds
here an there. Had a nice 25 to 30
incher cut the line on the prop heading
out of a trenasse barely wider than my
boat.

Saw a couple birds diving into a pond
and as I was trying to skinny up the
little trenasse I was met head on with
a dolphin headed out. We both stopped.
I couldn't turn around. Hell I only had
about 12 inches on either side of the
tiki. I slowly moved to the front and
gently set my pole in the mud no more
than 9 or 10 inches from his snout and
began polling out. Everytime I lifted
the pole he'd move up to the bow. When
I finally got to where he could go by
he just stayed at the bow. He wouldn't
go alongside the tiki. So another 10
minutes of polling and I pushed into
open water. He stayed at the bow. I sat
down in my seat and thought about the
situation. I reached down in the bait
bucket grabbed a handful o shrimp and
tossed them off to the side of him. He
moved quickly towards them and
dissappeared. I was glad I didn't spook
him but I'll never know what or why he
didn't leave when he had the chance.

I grabbed a favorite beverage out of
the cooler, dropped the motor and
headed to port with another smile on my
face. One with nature on another
beautiful day in our beautiful coastal
marshes.

Till next time

ANOTHER WINDY DAY HERE IN EMPIRE, LA!

This morning we had the pleasure to guide regulars David & Deena French from Knoxville , TN.

We left out early with the wind kicking out the southeast once again.

We found some clean water in a protected area and stayed on it all morning.

The bite was slower than slow at times. We worked for em. David & Deena put 36 pretty Speckled Trout on ice with to many throwbacks to count.

It will be nice to work a calm day when it finally happens! LOL!

BIG THANKS TO DAVID & DEENA!

WE HAVE A FEW OPEN DAYS TO FISH WITH US IN JULY! THE RIVER IS RIGHT & THE FISH BITE!

Shell Beach , LA USA

ANOTHER GREAT DAY AT THE BEACH…..

I had the pleasure of fishing with Mitch and the gang again for the second day. Capt. Jonathan pitched in on this one. We headed for the sound but stopped short and got on an outstanding trout bite. The fish were eating up Campos shrimp like popcorn! Capt. Jonathan had the same scenario working in his area where he stopped. Polished off the trout and then looked nearby for a few redfish at the redfish mecca. Got lucky and pounded out a limit of them too. Capt. J came by and did almost as well with them. Got the guys back to the dock well before noon. Fishing right now is outstanding right here just minutes outside of New Orleans!

All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green and Black Omen Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on Campo’s Live Shrimp under corks.

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!!

BREEZY ON THE DELTA!

This morning we had the pleasure to guide Ryan, Landon, Steve & Dalton from Baton Rouge, LA. It was their first trip with us!

We left out of Delta Marina early with the wind building out the east southeast.

We fished in protected waters sticking and moving all morning as the wind increased as the day went on. Fishing live shrimp under popping corks, persistence paid off once again.

The guys did a hell of a job boating over 100 Speckled Trout with 70 fish being keepers.

BIG THANKS TO RYAN, LANDON, STEVE & DALTON!

WE HAVE A FEW OPEN DAYS TO FISH WITH US IN JULY!

              TEAM JO-JO

On the way in form our trip today we saw Big Al and his crew, (Big Claire, Big Brady, & Big Jaxon, (Action Jaxon)) fishing out of the boat that was halfway in the slip, this caught the eye of Big Ronnie and Oneofthepack we just had to stop by and talk to all on board, to see who caught the biggest fish.

When question was asked (re: biggest fish) all hands pointed to Big Brady, seem he had a big gar to his credit, and Big Jaxon was also in the running with his catch. It was a major decisions as to who would be Fisherperson of the day, but after looking at Big Claire, we (Big Ron & Oneofthepack ) felt it best that we have (2) winners for this outing, congratulations to both.

Big Brady & Big Jaxon are both avid readers of RonNReel.com hope they get the opportunity to view this report, along with all the other very informative reports posted daily.

Good Fishing

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

             TEAM JO-JO

Just like when coaches complain to the ref’s about their ability/s to call a game, and they sometime effect the calling of the remaining game, Oneofthepack feels as thou he may experience the same type situation by my statement that our Disney World known as Delacroix Island had no bites / fish, this comment based on Sunday trip. Me feel the fish god & nature was out to prove a point today, she gave us the most perfect day of CATCHING that we have had in a long time. Big Ronnie (aka Wildman, aka Dago) was first mate today, he and Oneofthepack had a goal of 15 Silverwonders today, and she almost tripled that twice.

SIGNS:

• Fished Sat & Sun
• Took Monday off, Loveofthepack suggested me rest, she also said I cannot make 2 trips in a row, it is too much for me, not as young as I use to be.
• Loveofthepack also said me cannot go fishing on a day when we have something plan that evening, cause me cannot stay / keep up with the group to tired.
• Oneofthepack agreed with everything Loveofthepack stated, with 2 exceptions, (1) need to change word CANNOT too SHOULD NOT, cause when I’m dead I will have all the CANNOT’s to look forward to, (2) I guess cause she never mention 3 or 4 days in a row, they OK.
• On rest day took Daughterofthepack and grandkidsofthepack to breakfast at Waffle House, (table for (5), food was great, but little one Big Vienne (3) had a complaint, she did not like how her hash browns where cooked and she let the waitress and cook know it.
• After breakfast took the youngings to scoop bait with their new net, they were amazed how much life was around edge of bayou and in the grass, we had grass shrimp, minnows, crawfish, and many other critters. Told them next time we will get bait then go catch some fish with it.
• Meet up with Big Ronnie at  Team Jo-Jo’s official meeting place, (Waffle House in Chalmette) for 4:30 AM went off with no problems, everybody on time
• Quick breakfast, cook, Jack did a fine job, stop by and tell him hi next time you go out.
• Not many boats on Hwy, gas stations, or launches
• Made it to the Bay Flat Sr. she looked happy to see us and Yamaha Dream Machine kicked off like she had some place to go and was in a hurry to get there.
• Stop at Lionel’s for ice
• Off to spot # 6

CONDITIONS


• Perfect, perfect. Perfect
• Wind E.S.E 10-12 mph
• Sunny & Clear
• Mild temps, stopped fishing at 10:30 AM, just about the time it was going to get hot.
• Low humidity
• Water temp 83.7 F
• Water level 14” +
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7, when we first got their it was a 6 plus, as tide came in went to a 4 minus, brown and sandy looking
• Just the begging of a rising tide, perfect, perfect, when wind picked up current picked up
• Saw 1 boat in our area

TECHNIQUE / STRATGEY:

• Have fun
• Get a few fish for Big Ronnie
• Used intel from Saturday and Sunday trip to plan todays trip
• Find A spot number with the four fundamentals of catching:
 Wind at your back
 Moving water
 Water clarity
 Holding fish
 This a real easy task for us today, we could not make a wrong call
• Reach our goal of 15 Silverwonders
• Anchor up cast  (up current) & retrieve let current run lure along  the bottom ,bounce lure as it went along the bottom, work ALL the way back to boat (55)t caught
• Bites stopped at 8:30 AM time for the Oak River Troll
• Oak River Troll (16)t, (7)d
• No try corks
• No live or dead bait used all lures

LURE DU JOUR:

Today a purple day, 3” H&H purple beetle, matched up with H&H ¼ oz. round white head w/gold hook, which is all it took, caught all but 1 fish.

Started out  with 3/8 Matrix Shad Lemon Drop, but we had a start of rising tide water not moving that fast so went to ¼ oz. head to allow the lure to glide along the bottom and not drag along the bottom, BINGO, stayed with that all day. Silverwodners would not touch Lemon Drop today.


AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot # 6 (55) t, (7) d, 14 (15) t, stopped fishing at 10:30 turned the Bay Flat Sr. north for a quick smooth ride back to the slip.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (71) Silverwonders
• (7) Drum
• (4) Oyster shells
• (1) Bushel of grass
• (2) tangled lines
• No hook ups on the bottom
• Only used about 10 H&H beetles, lost no heads
• Food, snacks, drinks fit for a king, thanks to Big Mel, thanks Mel
• Learned / confirmed Team Jo-Jo’s motto “YOU GOT TO GO TO KOW” still holds true
• Relaxing morning with the best fisherperson I know, Big Ronnie is the man
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.

SUGGESTIONS:

• “YOU GOT TO GO TO KNOW”
• Be at your honey hole for the changing of the tides
• Early fisherperson gets the spot
• 3” H&H purple beetle, don’t leave home without them, along with a bunch of H&H ¼ oz. round white heads with gold hook. If you cannot find them email we and we will tell you how to get them quickly.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Big Brady, see next post

PONDER OF THE DAY:

Catching is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to catching. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Due to reasons out of Oneofthepack’ s control, (Loveofthepack has control) will be off the water all the way to Friday, that is a long time to be away from our Disney World known as Delacroix Island, especially after today’s trip, “nothing will end well, if all wells is not happy” see you all out and about.

Good Fishing

Team Jo-Jo & Oneofthepack

Capt JS

baton rouge, LO USA

Agree on the windy conditions this year
worse ever. Down for the week end. Great
tides for GI but to smart to make that
run and get beat up. We stayed close and
had some great bass and flounder
fishing. We caught the grand slam and
the reds would not leave the bass baits
alone. So glad we did not make the run
to GI with some of the storms we waited
out at the cmap. Lafitte trout fishing
is now South for sure only caught a few
trout close to camp.

Secrtet Formula

Algiers, La United States

In response to The Louisiana Fisherman

Yes that was I.  I dont know another person in SE
Louisiana that fishes from a Formula boat, and you
are also correct when you said the wind built as the
day went on.  By 10:00 it was blowing steady 15 to
20+, and as stated in my post the fishing conditions
were very difficult.

But to answer your questions as to how I managed
to catch a limit Sunday involves server factors.  I'll
try and break it down without sounding pretenious.

1) Knowledge.  I've fished that area for over 50 years
and know where to fish and when the fish should be
staged on different structure during given periods of
the tide cycle, and the tide was perfect for fishing on
Sunday.
2) Confidence. I had complete confidence in my
knowledge and methods of fishing.  I was fishing
with croakers and knew even given the conditions
that when I found the fish I'd catch them.
3) Equipment.  I had a sturdy boat beneath me and
knew I'd be safe even if the conditions worsened.  
Also, my rode consists of 75' of 8 briat line with 10'
of chain on a danforth anchor.  Although I only
deployed about 30' of line, that coupled with the
chain assured that I would hold position even being
in the fetch of a 20 mph wind in Barataria.

As for your not hailing me, you were certainly
welcome to and had I been on the bite at that time
I'd have called you in provided you could have
comfortably / safely made it.

Hopefully one day we'll meet and I'll have the
pleasure of shaking your hand because you too are
truly a fisheman for having continued on fishing
under those conditions Sunday regardless of your
success.

Until we meet,
ARRIVE ALIVE!!!

The Louisiana Fisherman

Myrtle Gove, LA USA

Launched Sunday morning out of Myrtle
Grove Marine. Forecast was supposed to be
clear, with 6-8 mph winds. Ran to Barataria
bay to start around Manilla Village. Arrived to
an overcast, ominous sky. The wind was
already blowing at around 10. Buoy say's it
got up to 23 while we were out there. Bite
was slow, moved around a bit throughout the
day, ending with 6 trout and 1 red.

Secret Formula, I don't know how you got
your limit with those winds Especially fishing
further south than I did. Also, I'm assuming
that was you running ahead of me in
Wilkerson (picture is blurry). I told myself I
was going to hit you up on the VHF, but
never did.

GOOD DAY AT THE OFFICE…..

Had the pleasure of fishing with Mitch McClure of LDS Lighting Design and Sales out of Memphis TN. He brought along Jeremy Vinson Stuart Irby Co., Mike Hubbard, Jeremy McCallister of Delta Electric, Brad Davis MSB Construction, and Brandon Rowland of Fourroux Prothetics. My crew fished trout and Capt Danny fished redfish. It was start and stop for us most of the morning, but we sealed the deal early enough to join Capt. Danny at the redfish mecca. Pulled up right next door and started catching them cast after cast. The only problem was the bulk were just over the mark and had to be released. Got their fill of thrills and took it to the house.

All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green and Black Omen Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on Campo’s Live Shrimp under corks.

ANOTHER WINDY DAY'S CATCH!

This morning we had the pleasure to guide Glenn Clements, Danny Keating, & Aaron Reed.

We left out of Delta Marina in Empire, LA early with the wind building out the east. The wind was stiff out the east all day. We had to stick and move several times in a couple places that we had cover from the wind.

The guys fished hard using live shrimp under popping corks. We felt good about our finish with approximately 60 Speckled Trout in the Yeti at noon.

It was a lot of laughs and a fun day on the water with the guys today.

BIG THANKS GLENN, DANNY & AARON!

Slidell, LA USA

             TEAM JO-JO

             Sunday Trip

Big Ted called, (after Big T-Doc called) in response to Friday post on RNR for first mate re:  Saturday trip, but had to advise him Oneofthepack had already committed to a trip with Big T-Doc aboard his SeaChaser.  Not to be dismayed, says I we can plan a Sunday trip, will call Saturday, (after returning from fishing trip) to discuss details.

SIGNS:

• Had a great Saturday trip came home and crashed, (not much sleep Friday night) went to lay down at 4:45 PM to rest a little, woke up at 9:30 PM, called Big Ted, (he had called 3 times)  to confirm our trip, meet up at Waffle House in Oak Harbor for 4:30 AM.
• Went back to bed at 9:45 PM, set alarm, and not expecting to be able to sleep cause of early nap
• Missed ganddaughtreofthepack play / performance Saturday night, this NOT A GOOD SIGN AT ALL, and was not received very well by Loveofthepack and Familyofthepack, but not the first time this happen.
• Lying in bed and I can hear the clock ticking, said to myself I will get rid of that clock to loud, as I came out of my sleep realized the alarm was going off. Not fully awoke I jump up and look at clock now 4:30 AM, not a good sign
• Found phone still half way awake, call Big Ted, look man I’m going to be about 30 minute late, no problems says he, hang up and start to get everything ready, and dash out of the door, drove like a bat out of hell to Waffle House.
• Passed on Hwy 11, (late) took I-10 to 5-10 all the way to Chalmette, at a blistering pace.
• No Big Ted, mind relay running at a high pace, what could have happen, BINGO, we were to meet at Waffle House in Oak Harbor, (1 minute form house) call Big Ted back, Oneofthepack fully awake now, look man another request, I’m in Chalmette can you come meet me over here, no problem says he.
• When we meet up we both very confused, Big Ted no understand why Chalmette, he thought I was still in Chalmette from Saturday trip, long story to long already, but we finally hooked up for our trip.
• Told Big Ted this not the first time Oneofthepack late, but is the only second time this has happen being late not my thing!!!!!!!!!!!!
• Passed on everything as we road to Delacroix, was even thinking of not getting any go juice, me though I had enough to do this trip, but needed some dead bait for Big Ted, stop we did which made us a little more late, no problem.
• Off to spot # 6 to start the day

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• Once Oneofthepack woke up it was even better
• E.N.E wind 18-22 w/gust to 30 mph
• Over cast day, nice
• Mild temps, low humidity
• Water level up
• Water temp 89 F
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 4 plus, brown sandy look
• Caught the beginning of a rising tide, (missed the change) came in hard all day, east wind pushing it in hard.
• Had a few many boast out and about, running around looking for fish, seen one boat pass us by 4 times back & forth.


TECHNIQUE / STARTEGY:

• Have fun
• Find A spot number with the four fundamentals of catching:
 Wind at your back
 Moving water
 Water clarity
 Holding fish
 We found a number of spots that 3 of the above, but holding fish was the weak link of our quest to catch.
• We tried to do the Oak River Troll, but 2.9 mph was a little fast for this, tide and wind in same direction we moving way to fast. Think out of the box, we laid one of the Cajun anchors down flat on the bottom and let it drag along the bottom, this did 2 things slowed us down, and kept us on a path, (we had a somewhat of a cross wind kept wanting to blow us to the other side) somewhat along the drop off this worked well but not bites we had.
• Corks nothing
• Anchor up cast & retrieve caught all this way, bouncing lure along bottom as it ran with current.

LURE DU JOUR:

• Matrix Shad Lemon Drop, matched up with 3/8 H&H round lead head w/gold hook
• 3’H&H purple beetle contributed 1 fish
• Dead shrimp was still in the box half frozen, almost forgot to take them out of the Bay Flat Sr. and throw away at the slip.

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Started out at spot # 6 (11)t, 14,15, 2A (2)t,17,20,21,22,23,22,21,20,23,17,2A,1,2,14,6, called it a day at 2:15 made a dash back to the slip.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (13) Silverwonders
• (4) Drum
• (2) Oyster shells
• (1) Rope Big Ted took this category fins down
• (3) bottoms
• Great food and drinks as provide by Big Ted, this bring food thing I’m likening, makes it easier to stay out late cause usually hunger make me come in.
• Another great day on the water with one of the best fisherperson I know Big Ted that be.
• Best, (CONFUSED) fishing trip of my life, until the next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

While riding that 15 minute slow run to Lionel’s I asked Big Ted what is our goal today, he says 15, good that is what it will be, and me think 12.

At spot # 6 Silverwonders are on a small bite spree, now comes the finality of the 15 fish goal, Big Ted says they have to be keepers, no problem think Oneofthepack. As fish started to come in, another caveat is added, he has to catch 15, now Oneofthepack knows we have a big challenge today.

Fishing, no I mean catching was real slow today, we made a deal next one to catch a fish gets 50 cents, we both made 50 cents today, think about it.

Based on both of our efforts today we have no Fisherperson of the day, reward will carry over to next trip.

SUGGESTIONS:

Try to fish the end of a falling tide, me think the fish are feeding then, we fish hard all day, it left me with a feeling that their is no fish left at Delacroix. I know this not to be true, but that is how it felt, not one bite after 8:00 am.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

“To be catch less is nothing, unless you continue to remember it.”

Hope to get back to fishing soon, really missing it, until then:

Good Fishing

Slidell, LA USA

Made a late afternoon/evening trip Saturday with my daughter and her friend. Winds were stronger than forecast which made it difficult to fish some areas I planned. Winds laid down about 5:30. Hit L+N bridge, Lake Borgne shoreline, mud lake, rig in Lake Borgne, Lake Catherine Pass and Hospital Wall. Nothing at Mud Lake or L+N. Undersized trout everywhere else. A few keepers at Lake Catherine Pass and Hospital Wall. Spent some extra time riding around teaching my daughter to drive the boat. She had a blast and can't wait to go again, which means more fishing trips for me.

engine starting issue, had to be towed in from rocks to BSM. Saved me from spending the night in the marsh.

If your boating on area waters no reason not to have a SeaTow membership.
Best insurance policy you'll ever have.

Also big shout out to BSM. With phone service out in the area and credit card service unavailable I was able to start a tab and run my trip. What a class operation.

Wasn't able to make The Loop due to the weather in

Made bait at Sanddollar and headded east to the 4

but the thrid was the charm.  Rough as hell in the
Big Lake but boxed a limit of nice trout by noon
without a drop of rain, although I'd have taken the
rain in place of easier conditions.  Either way it was
a good day under tough conditions.
All the fish were caught on carolina rigged croakers.

Lafitte, LA USA

LAFITTE REPORT...

We are still enjoying a very good spring fishing season down here in Lafitte with good boxes of fish hitting the tables daily. We are blessed with some great friends and regular customers and have been treating them to good to great trips the last couple weeks which is something we always look forward to!

The speckled trout bite remains steady when the conditions allow. The fish are moving closer to the gulf to spawn and are in open water so light winds are a plus if not a necessity. Good old H&H beetles in the cock of the walk color under popping corks has been the winner this year.

The redfish have remained shallow in the ponds east and west of Lafitte and are hitting H&H gold spoons in the clear water ponds where grass is filtering the water. In the murkier water fresh shrimp has produced well under popping corks for us.

All in all this year is a vast improvement over the last couple as I'm sure you have heard or hopefully experienced. If not, come on down to Lafitte and we will treat you to a fishing trip you won't soon forget!

WE HAVE OPENINGS THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS FOR LODGING AND FISHING AND JUNE 1ST AND 2ND IS AVAILABLE DUE TO A CANCELLATION!! HATE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS...

Come see us down here in Lafitte, Louisiana!!

We are located an easy 35 minute drive from New Orleans.

We have 5 guides ready to fish and lodging available.

Our prices are very reasonable and won't break the bank.

We provide quality equipment including Shimano spinning reels on TFO inshore rods.

We use the best in soft plastics, the originator H&H Lures!

All boats are fully equipped including Power Poles .

Give us a call at 504-689-2006 or send an email to captainphil02@cox.net to book your trip today.

Don't forget to check out www.fishwithphil.com for more great info and thanks for reading our reports!

God bless and good fishing

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY (FOTD)

Oneofthepack was a shoe in, that BIG red would have made it happen, me was just jigging lure along the bottom over the oyster shells in 16 feet of water, got a bite, felt like a nice NMR, but lost it, started to reel up slow and all hell broke loose. Line on my Penn Battle II BLT 1000 was screaming  line out, knew it would not be long before it was spooled, tighten down on the drag, no help, put my finger on spool added more pressure on big red, he stops and turns toward me, started getting line back on the reel. He makes another run, once again stopped him, he comes back goes under boat looking for motor, got him out of that, another run, finally got him to the boat belly up (BIG MOTHER, me think we need a bigger net), he sees net another run, heads back to boat, under boat, (Shimano CSSM60 bent over double) behind motor heading toward anchor, put more pressure on him, hits trim tab, game over BIG red wins.

Big Dale, not, he not have much confidence in lures, he more a bait man, dead / live no difference, if (FPOD) was judge by drum, and other bottom feeders, Big Dale would have been in the hunt for sure.

Big T-Doc has a little confidence in lures, but he to like bait, at spot # 6 lure was working for him, he also likes tipping his lure with a little something extra, and he too played with the bottom feeders, but not enough to capture the honors for today.

Which leaves us with Big Pablo, a fisherperson who excels in all techniques, struggles a little with the lures but he can make it happen with them. Like his dead bait, and loves his live bait. Top, bottom, and all points in-between makes no difference to him he can adjust to any technique / condition. When you add it all up, he the man and is fisherperson of the day.

SUGGESTIONS:

Bites & action was early, nine o’clock and on was tough fishing, not many caught after that, so suggest you get an early start, this way you can beat the heat too.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

A fisherperson must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to learn from them, and strong enough to correct them

Until next time:

Good Fishing

Shell Beach , LA USA

BREEZY DAY AT THE BEACH……

I had the pleasure of fishing with Mr. Eddie Jacobs, originally from N.O. East, with Highpointe Hotel Corporation, for the second time. This time he brought along his son Bryce, work associate, Marie Perque, and friend Jay Tournillon. Winds were Northeast at 20 and we opted straight for plan B. It was a good move. Made 4-5 stops with only 2 fish. The second Marie sat out and took break we landed on pay dirt. The fish went nuts for the crew, just like it was scripted. All big beautiful redfish along with a little lagniappe made for a stella day not having to fight the conditions! It was another outstanding day fishing minutes from New Orleans.

All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green and Black Omen Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on Campo’s Live Shrimp under corks.
