Secret Formula

Algiers, La United States

In response to Jazzy Trout



I know of several who still have and drink more beer on their boats than water while fishing.  When I fish I'm all about fishing, it's allowed and encouraged to have fun but I'm not out there just to drown croakers!  When I do take a guest (which isn't often) I'll have no more than 2 beers on board for each of us to "possibly" have after we're finished fishing and on our way back once we're within 30 minutes of the dock.  Other wise it's 2 gallons of water and 2 quarts of gatoraide per person on ice on board, plus a gallon of stored water.  And if I don't see my quest having to urinate at least once an hour I force them to drink until they do!

ARRIVE ALIVE!!!

Jazzy Trout

Gretna, La United States

In response to Secret Formula

I'd be interested to know how many fishermen
STILL (I used to) drink on the water.  Only water
and Gatorade on my boat. May drink a beer
while cleaning fish and a couple of jack and
cokes after shower and in easy chair. Please
understand not being judgmental and if yow
want to drink on my boat I don't care, I just don't
enjoy drinking while fishing. It takes all my wits to
catch anything anyway! I'm probably paying the
price for my earlier partying days! Haha

River Ridge, LA USA

Been a while since I ran the Skeeter,
so I decided to make an afternoon trip
on Sunday.
My wife and her sister fancied some
Bull Red action, so we scooted down to
Grand Isle from Lafitte in short order,
to find it was on big time !
Cracked crab was all it took, everyone
enjoying fighting and releasing several
bulls. Even had time to make a stop on
the way in for some Grillin'Reds too.
Great fun day with family.

Louis Rossignol - Venice Guide Service

Venice , LA USA

Haven't posted in a while, because I've been
fishing everyday. And I'm going out again today
but sleeping in a little.

The trout down here have been inconsistent to
say the least, so we've been substituting them
with mangroves which are insane.

The red fishing has been incredible, with bulls in
every direction.

The pic of the tripletail is a bad pic, I never could
get the angler and the fish together, the action
was just that fast.

Enjoy!

In response to Mike Lane - RodnReel.com

You're right Mike. Since I tried the Versamax the rest of my corks are in the bag. They help with casting accuracy and they are easy to change rattle sound from mixed (redfish) to higher pitches for specks depending on what bait is in the water. I enjoyed getting out in Little Tiki with you and Wanda. I'm looking for an inexpensive power trim for my Johnson 48 to make it easier on you next time out in the skinny ponds and trenasses. I'm not getting any younger as you know. When the trout transition gets into full swing we'll hit the water again and fill the ice chest in a lot less time too. Laura and I will see you Friday (set up) and Saturday at the Bayou Bash. Let me know if you need a band to play in the afternoon. A couple friends and I wouldn't mind playin a few tunes to save our Marsh.

Thanks for your honest report and I'm glad to hear you dodged the bullet (for the most part!).
Here is my rule for summer fishing (especially if your fat and 61 yrs. old like I am): If the forecast is for 90+ degrees, I'm back in air-conditioning before 1pm. As bad as it is on those days in the morning, the time between 1-4 pm are worse by a factor of 10x. If the forcast is for 95+, I stay home.

Capt Jack

st bernard, LA USA

Today Capt. Jack went out with some guys from Tennessee and Mississippi.They caught 29 reds, 4 drum, and 1 sheep head. Everywhere they stopped to fish they caught good. Fishing was better today then its been in a while. Water came up a foot and a half higher above normal. Fishing will be even better when the water gets back to normal which is great. Grass in the bays is broken up and scattered out so we are able to catch where we could not lately. For you hunters Teal season opens soon September 13th- September 28th. We don't have much time till then. We still have lodging available for some weekends and weekdays. Its looking good out there for Teal Capt. Jack reported seeing 11 Blue wing teal 2 days ago and 7 today. Book your lodging now to hold the date. Its coming up to that time of the year where the fishing picks up tremendously. October is a busy month for fishing. So call now to book a charter and/or lodging. A small deposit will hold your date. If your looking to come down in your own boat and need help launching we have someone who can assist you with that so come on down to Sweetwater Marina where our customers are #1 and you can just relax and have a good time.

Mike,
Just catching up with reports.  Ver, very sorry to hear about your ordeal!  We tried Delacroix a week ago yesterday for some reds.  But the water was so chocked full of grass in the areas we tried, you couldn't cast to within 15 ft. of the banks...terrible conditions for redfishing.
Even before I read your report, we decided not to venture out again until at least the end of September.  Stay safe.

3 STOP SHOPPIN’….

I had the pleasure of fishing with one of my regulars, Michael Branighan of Merrill Lynch. He brought along two of his clients, Hal and his son. We made a couple stops close in and then took a long shot for the 3rd. It turned out to be the move we needed to make. Trout, trout, and more trout! The guys did a great job at keeping baits in the water, and in short order had their limit of 75 pretty trout chillin’ on ice. Left them biting to beat the heat and get some shade back at BSM.

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

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

            TEAM JO-JO

Oneofthepack picked up (Monday) the Bay Flat Sr (she was not feeling to good) from Bayou Outboards submitted a list of 15 items that needed some attention, Big Earl and his crew had her ready in no time.

I just wanted to get her ready for the fall fishing, and with what was done I’m hoping to get one or two more seasonings out of her, (Big Earl said she had many hours on her and wish me luck, not a good sign)  before start looking for new motor and/or rig.

They way I look at it is, Loveofthepack has been around Oneofthepack (48) plus years and she is still looking new and is hot as ever, plus the hours on her are around 405K range. And I know she good for many more seasons.

One item on my list was a new fish finder, felt out of sync for the last 2 years without one,  me feel this is one tool (of the many available) me think is must need to be successful at catching. Even thou we know all the hole locations at our Disney World known as Delacroix Island, it is hard to position the boat at the best location of the drop off without a depth finder.

Today plan to reload the Bay Flat Sr with gear, and bring her back down to her resting spot, boat hoist along Delacroix road, may even do a little test run with her to check all out and be ready for next trip.

Loveofthepack, grandkidsofthepack, and Sonofthepack (Big Randy) w/his bride Big Gigi will be heading to Florida this weekend, Big Randy has a baseball tournament, so we will not be fishing until sometime next week, will advise on our fishing journey and let you know what the conditions look like.

Hope to see all you fisherperson out and about SOON, until then:

CAPT JOSH HOWARD

Venice, LA USA

http://vimeo.com/103567147



July 30th , Capt Josh and Capt Mitch along with Out Da Bayou host John Jackson boarded the Triple Threat in Venice to shoot a tv show and catch a few yellowfin tuna. The bite had been on but had died the day before so we were a little on edge and hoping for some action. We made our way out about 60 miles south of Venice Louisiana. Plan was to catch bait and look around there for a few tuna. Well, didn't take long for us to see yellowfin clearing the water , chasing baits, putting on a show. We were still catching bait but decided to cut it short and try to put a few tuna in the boat early.

The boat was still in motion as Capt Mitch casted the popper off of the bow. Capt Josh was busy putting a live hardtail out the back of the boat. Capt Mitch hooked into a tuna with the popper and it wasn't two more mins before the live hardtail had been swallowed up. Game on....doubled up within five mins of putting baits in the water. We landed both fish...cleaned them up a little to take pictures, fish on ice and back in position for round 2.

It took a few mins more for our 3rd hook up but it came . Another crash on a live one. Nothing big about these fish but they had lots of heart. John was in a sweat by now on his 2nd yellowfin to fight. Most fish were 50-60 pounds. may have ended up with one around 70 ish.

We continued to hook and land fish....text book perfect. never pulled a hook, landed every fish we hooked. Wish every day was like that.

Even with the added time of posing for the camera, cleaning the fish, cleaning the boat after cleaning the fish. We still managed 8 yellowfin before 12:30. A great day to be on the Triple Threat. Check out the link. The tv show is great quality and John scored some cool shots from overhead with the drone.

Cast and Blast Charters-Captain Chris Pike

Delacroix, LA USA

Teal season opens up on September 13 and runs through September 28, and with only days until the opener, NOW is the time to book! We have some availability left for weekends as well as weekdays and this will be a season you will NOT want to miss! Ive been out fishing almost everyday lately and am already seeing scattered flocks spread throughout our marshes. Our property looks better than ever and we are extremely excited about the Teal season and the regular season as everything is in place for a phenomenal season. I can handle groups of up to 16 with first class lodging available and privately owned marsh to ensure you the best hunt possible. We offer a "Cast and Blast" combo for both seasons and it is by far the best bang for your buck with everything included except your gun and shells. We had a fantastic season last year and this year I believe will top it!

Whether you'd like to book a hunt, fishing trip, or a "Cast and Blast", please visit my website at www.LaSaltwaterFishing.com or Call me at 504-427-4973.

Enough

Kenner, LA USA

re SeaBird...
The savior of Lafitte was going to be a (you guessed it) DIVERSION.... Davis Pond

http://www.mvn.usace.army.mil/About/Projects/DavisPondFreshwaterDiversion.aspx

Purpose
The project will divert fresh water, with its accompanying nutrients and sediments, from the Mississippi River into the Barataria Basin - - reducing saltwater intrusion and establishing favorable salinity conditions in the area, thus combating land loss. These diversions will also increase commercial and recreational fish and wildlife productivity, and enhance vegetated growth for a healthier estuarine ecosystem in the Barataria Basin. The shallow embayments support oyster and crab production and shrimp and food fish reproduction, while the marsh areas produce food for fur-bearing animals and migratory waterfowl. Approximately 33,000 acres (133.5 km2)of wetlands will be preserved and 777,000 acres (3,145 km2) of marshes and bays will be benefited during the 50-year life of project. Fresh water diversions will occur under regulated conditions developed by monitoring basin salinities, and the fish and wildlife resources. The project area is 10,084 acres; 9,311 of these acres (3,768 ha) are in the ponding area. Estimated annual benefits: $14,997,000 for commercial fish and wildlife, plus $298,000 for recreation, or $15,295,000.

Opened in 2002.... If this reads like BS, then hang on.... They have lots more planned and coming your way.
Folks, if you don't believe Mike and Capt Ricks, then please believe the Corps.  Notice this is taken directly off of their site...  Here is the next section...called Status or OOPS...

Status

Project Diversions began in July of 2002 and have continued since then. The extremely fresh conditions that have been experienced over the past three years have diluted the measurable progress of the project. Results are most effective and visible when above-average salinity conditions are present in the Barataria Basin, and the project's freshwater diversions bring the salinities back down to the optimum level.

Bash on the Bayou is coming, if you don't support it, then you will be looking for an island in the Gulf to fish.  Bass are gone from Salvador and Cataouatche, Crabs are $40/dozen, Shrimp are imported, but put the river back the way it was.  It has to help!  Remember, the Delta was built on springtime floods, not year round high pressure diversions. Venice turns on when the River drops and Saltwater starts moving upriver??

Scope

Deterioration of the marshes surrounding New Orleans is caused by several factors including subsidence, erosion, and saltwater intrusion. Introduction of fresh water, nutrients and sediments from the Mississippi River via the Davis Pond diversion structure will serve to reduce this degenerating trend in the Barataria Basin.
As DR Phil says, How's that working for you after 12 years?

Continuing to do the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of insanity......

show for it.  I expected a little more
from one of the "Pros".    

Back to the shoreline where I can not
catch fish for almost free.

Bon Temps

Mandeville, LA USA

Hopedale report:
As most reports have been saying; we found some reds yesterday deep in the marsh. 2 smaller ones but made the slot, 3 between 25-27 and 2 around 22-24.
1 Sheep Head.  
Tide stopped, wind started, fish shutdown around 9:30-10. Picked up at 11 due to heat.

No trout for the past two weekends.

BSM has shrimp; mixed size; several really small.

metairie, LA USA

east of east--was there about a month
ago on a friend's boat.  There was an
old piece of 2"  pipe sticking out of
the water about a foot we didn't see and
scraped the hell out of the side of the
boat. But did not hit anything
underwater. I would imagine if we or
anyone else had hit it head on it would
have been pushed down underwater. And
not a single trout or fish, either at
that stop.

I told my wife it had to be the one beer, but she
wasn't buying.  But truly one beer was all the alcohol
I had drank (that day).

In response to Secret Formula:

Mike, glad to see you are ok.  We had a yard sale Saturday and the heat was brutal, even in the shade.  I was going to take the boat out fishing Sunday, but it was going to be a solo trip.  With the heat, I decided against it.  It wouldn't take much to pass out and end up in the drink. If that's going to happen, I'd much prefer to have someone with me.  

Stay Cool My Friends...

I hit a submerged pipe or something metal
on the West tip of Stone Island...luckily
I had a spare prop but the shaft was bent
so $2500 later I had a new lower unit and
a new prop!

Please let us know if your fingers start to split on the ends, mind started with one finger than made it to all others, including the thumb. This lasted for 2 plus months.

Don’t know if the little shiners caused it, but it was right after I threw the cast net and picked up a bunch of those shiners to put in bait box and got a little sting from them my fingers started to split.

Good Fishing

Baton Rouge, LA USA

Has anyone fished the Iron Banks and hit a submerged pipe or concrete? We were there Sunday and hit something just as we were leaving...bent the stainless prop pretty good. We made it back but the lower unit is in need of replacement. Just was wondering if anyone else had ran into it.  We were a pretty good distance from it, on the west side of the structure. Be safe in that area..

Capt. Josh,

That's a great video.  I'm pretty sure what you are
calling a disco minnow is a bar jack. The juvenile bar jacks have a yellow tail and the adults have a dark blue to black tail. Thanks for the
video and looking forward to your pictures.

I know you are in way better shape then me and we all think we can handle everything because we are manly men but this makes me not want to piss off the sun gods anymore.  I didn't fish this weekend so I probably missed the hottest day of the year but my buddies went out and didn't do too much due to wind and dirty water.  Must have been that one beer you drank that did that to you.
