I fished the same area as you did on Monday with very similar results. I agree with Pat, the main thing that will help fishing inside is the calendar, but I think these east and southeast winds with also help a bunch and soon.

Capt Chad / Cajun Unlimited

venice, LA USA

Labor Day weekend I was given the opportunity to
guide David's family on his boat. Windy conditions
with moms and their little girls Megan and Grace
kept us in calm waters. Fifteen minutes from the
Venice dock in a calm pass got their lines bending.

It started as a scary moment for them and it wasn't
long before they were reeling and tossing them in.
Moms were catching and helping as well.
Megan's first fish was a drumfish then came her
first redfish.

The breeze in a calm pass surrounded by willow
and cypress trees was grand. The scenery of the
green grass, millet, and reeds of a duck season
around the corner. Then catching some keeper
redfish added to it. These are the moments that
are priceless and memories that Megan and Grace
will not forget.

HILLBILLIE’S RETURN DAY 1….

I had the pleasure of fishing with the crew from Kentucky, aka the “Ridgedawgs” of the Ponderosa Hunting Club. Tommy Tate, Curt Phelps, Jerry Womack, Bob Escue, Tyler Thompson, and his friend Justin. They came down and tuna fished Venice one day and now us. Capt. Dane assisted with the group. We had minimal rain around but still had some choppy conditions. Both crews did it up right as trout limits hit the dock. A great time was had by all!

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!

In response to Chris

The redfish become sluggish when the water temps are mid to upper 80s. That doesn't mean they can't be caught, they still need to eat and people catch them, its just tougher. In very warm water, I find the reds bite better on open water (Borgne, Robin, Fortuna) where there is a current and access to deeper water. But, its still fishing, and there are many times we strike out on reds in the summer.

Fall and 70-deg water is soon. Can't wait.

Mandeville, LA USA

Hey guys tough weekend out of BSM fished both
Sunday and Monday from about 6:00 to 3:00
only catching 4 reds and 1 trout that I was able
to keep.  Caught a handful of small reds,
croakers, and of course a ton of hard heads.  I
fished in Stump Lagoon both days all the way up
to Lake Eugene and Pete's Lagoon. I've fished
every weekend this August and I've done pretty
good with the trout out in Bay Eloi but let me tell
you the Redfish in the interior marsh have been
kicking my ass!!! Maybe I'm in the wrong place
but the bite just hasn't been there for me. I hope
that as the fall arrives the interior gets as good
as everybody says it's going to be, I guess we
have to wait and see. Thanks to all the guys that
put there reports up it really helps someone like
me who can only get out on the weekend. Until
next time…

I'm thinking about fishing the dam right by BSM, I
see boats there often and I talked to a guy who
said he did good with the white trout and a few
reds. Any thoughts or suggestions??

Yes Jazzy Trout I did go out there Saturday.  I said I was going so off I went with the three girls.  We left about 8:00 a.m. and went about 300 yards before hitting the first shower but that's what's good about the bimini top.  We just go at a idle untill it stops.  No way were we going to cross the bay so we stayed inside and messed with redfish.  We wound up with 10 reds 2 drums and a bunch of throw back reds to keep everbody busy.  Only 2 of us were fishing because one had her wrist operated on and the other one doesn't fish but they like boat riding and adult beverages so considering the weather we didn't do too bad and we out ran several rain showers.  We got knocked out for redfish Sunday but the other boat (we call him the diehard boat because he's the first to leave and last to come in) made the run to Bay Long Sunday morning and caught a few trout and wound up with 1st and 2nd in trout for the rodeo.  Long weekend with a lot of partying and I'm glad to be back at work to take a break.  Caught the reds at the drains in upper Wilkerson Bayou on shrimp under a cork and they were scattered.  Boiled crabs and shrimp and had a good time and we all lived to see another day.  And yes everbody was drinking beer.

 just saw a rather large raptor outside of my house
just sitting on one of the wires in front of the house
next door,, i think he mite have been looking for the
resident marine.  i am supposed to be the observant
outdoors guy but it was my girl who pointed him out
to me.  started walking toward the house to get a
camera but didn't even make it inside when he took
off, unfurling large wings which took him off in an
easterly direction.  i believe it was a broad shouldered hawk. it certainly was a beautiful specimen.

NEED ABOUT 50 MORE NAMES ON PETITION GUYS

We now have 1,002 names on the petition. I'd like to get at least 50 more since some people who signed up didn't list their address. We'll STOP after get 1,050 and prepare the petition to mail to Chalmette refining Manager and our Louisiana U.S. Senators and Representatives.

PLEASE tell all your friends who may not be aware of the petition to sign up.

ALSO, if you have not read the letter I mailed to ALL LOUISIANA REFINERY CEOs REGARDING AVAILABILITY OF NON ETHANOL GAS IN LOUISIANA, please read it on my website.

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!

metairie, LA USA

Went out of BSM today with my dad.  Had
plans to get the boat in areas and small
ponds that we have never been before
since the water was up so much. Long
story short we found something like
heaven.  No more than 6 miles from the
launch in ponds off Bayou st. Maylo.  
Reds were super aggressive.  Water was
super clear in all those ponds and even
though we were blind casting there were
several times I could see the fish come
shooting out of the grass to inhale our
spinner bait. Might be the best trip for
us this year.  No need to buy bait,
burned 6 gallons of gas, and no crowds
to deal with.  We had our limit by 9:30
after I finished filling my tags and
hung around till 11:30 just for fun.
There was no real pattern; they were
everywhere. Points, pockets, just up
against the grass, and even out in the
middle of small channels. Trolling
around those ponds with the trolling
motor throwing spinner baits in crystal
clear water is so awesome.  Hopefully
the water will stay up for 2 more weeks
so I can get back there again.  Ended
the day catching 22 Reds 17"-24", a few
rats, 1 sheephead, and 2 trout.

With the water up like this just put the
trolling motor down and the big motor up
and head into places you normally can't
go.  With a 23ft. Hydra sport c/c draws
11" and just under 9 ft. Wide there were
Several times we went through canals and
ditches that rubbed both sides of the
boat but once we got through, it opened
up to these amazing ponds that we have
never fished before.  I love catching
speckled trout out by Islands but doing
what we did today may be my new
addiction.

Pat Fitzpatrick

Slidell, LA USA

Decided to try a redfish repeat. My Father-in-Law Jerry joined me. SE winds were stronger than Thursday, so launched out of BSM and took the Malo back route to Lake Borgne. Hit the redfish holes on Borgne shoreline.....nothing but ladyfish. Went into the marsh, found one lost red, a few throwback trout and more ladyfish. The marsh ponds and points were not producing. Bummer so far.

There was no tide movement, so stayed in the area hoping the falling tide would change our luck. When the tide changed around 8:30AM, went back to our shoreline spots. Made a cast, and the pole was almost ripped out of my hand by a nice red.

It wasn't fast, but steady action as we worked down the shoreline. The reds again were aggressive going after corks and boiling after the shrimp. We had eight nice reds (plus a 40-incher we let go) when showers started popping up. Rather than take a chance at a blowout, we decided to skip the last two and head in.

Another nice day on the water, but eagerly waiting for the fronts to get a nice mix into the marsh and for an easier fish bite.

IF YOU’RE DEALT LEMONS, THEN MAKE LEMONADE….

I had the pleasure of guiding long time client Ed Shaw from Hazlehurst, MS. I’ve known Ed since my second year in the business. He is always a great time and so are his crews. This time he brought Bob, Trace, and Charles Smith. We weren’t dealt the best weather card with 15-20kt winds and encroaching rain. We fished the edges of Black Bay and Lake Machais picking through a lot of small fish. After hearing the general consensus on the radio we opted to stay put, since it was working to our benefit. It was one of those take advantage of what you get type days. We picked through a pile of fish and called it a day around 11 am with 53 speckled trout in the box. Got back in, managing to beat the heat and stay dry.

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

Launched out of Rigolets today in hopes of fishing the rigs and other structures in Lake Borgne.  Unfortunately, the lake was too choppy.  Had to settle for spots around Rigolets.  The train bridge didn't produce and only a couple of rat reds, croakers, and tons of hardheads were caught along the Lake Borgne shoreline.

Fished up and down ICW to Unknown Pass and Little Rigolets and nada, just hardheads.  They were going after anything I threw out there.  There were a good number of boats out there but nobody was catching anything.

This has been my second trip to Rigolets this year and it was disappointing as the first.  I hope Lake Pontchartrain makes a come back this year for fall.

Catch:
(2) rat reds
(5) croakers
(tons) of hardheads

Lures:
Live shrimp
Dead shrimp

Metairie, LA USA

Fishing the Lake Pontchartrain shores
with the Mrs. early Sunday morning just
to mess around.  Working the Bonnabel
point facing the Causeway bridge with
market shimp on various baits.  Tons of
bait fish everywhere with fish striking
them.  I could see a large red with
that big sweet spotted tail hitting the
mullet two feet from the shore.  But I
could not get any bait past the bait
fish to target the reds.  What would be
the best type of set up to target the
reds when surrounded by smaller bait
fish immediately attacking any bait put
in the water?  
After 2 and half hours of chumming the
water and feeding small bait fish, it
was time to go.  Short trip, safe, and
good company, and the usual fish count
from our shoreline trips, 0.0

*Saw some guys going out from Bonnabel
launch in these cool rigged for fishing
paddle boats to the causeway, and they
came back later and said there was
nothing out there.

JUST WHAT WE BEEN WAITING FOR!

The Mississippi River is under 4 feet at the New Orleans gauge and has been for quite some time. Fishing will be at its best EAST and WEST of the river and in the RIVER itself in the weeks to come. As the Gulf of Mexico water continues to back up river, the river will have light current and pretty clean water.

I expect our fall fishing to be great. We still have a few days open in September, October and November for fishing. October and November are two of the best months of the year for Speckled Trout and Redfishing here in southeast, LA.

We will be back on the water this week as our end of summer break is over.

At this time we have this weekend, Friday Sept. 5, Saturday Sept. 6, & Sunday Sept. 7 open for fishing!

IN RESPONSE TO B&B:

Thanks for sharing your report. We took a trip out of Delacroix a few weeks back and did just as you guys did with the trout. The reds, heads and drum were the only thing out there to throw at and they didn't bite that great either. Was hoping to make a trip out of BSM or Campo's soon. But everyone I have spoken with is a little perplexed with the trout patterns thus far. It has been suggested to me to wait until the fall comes in to set up a trip. Hopefully by that time the trout patterns will be a little more predictable. Just remember that a bad day fishing is still better than a good day at work !! HA HA Hope everyone is enjoying this Labor day holiday. Be safe.

Bay Eloi report:
Made the trip down to BSM to try to land some
specks since the rigolets area hasn't been
producing. Took the shortcut to baker's canal
from loutre and down to bay eloi. Fished the first
pltfm but it was windy and the water was dirty.
Decided to run to the mrgo rocks  and spend the
rest of the morning there.
Tally:
2 rat reds
25 hard heads. Heads we're hitting everything
from live shrimp to vudu shrimp to matrix shads.
15 croakers. Croaker we're hitting live shrimp
and gulp alive.

Very disappointed in the action at the rocks. This
was my sons first time down there as he has
heard many stories of the area when I used to
frequent before moving to slidell.
My sons first comment as we were motoring
down hoped ale hwy to bam was all the trash in
the canal. All you putting your trash in the canal
should be ashamed. Stop.
People at bsm were very nice and shrimp were
good.

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
you find another boat to follow out,
especially taking the route you are

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!

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!

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.
