New Iberia, LA USA

Jim & I fished 7 - 10 this morn, south of Franklin Landing.  Water was calm, very clear, very little green algae, no tide.  Kept 1 nice flounder, tagged 5 reds, too small.  Headed in because of the heat.

Lafayette, LA USA

In Response to Pat; Seabird; B.
Hymel:

Wow !!
Three gentlemen at one time
responding to the screwed up
federal/state issues on our offshore
fisheries.

Way to go men, in calling out your
local politicians, as they kiss ass
and stick their heads in the marsh
(not sand).

I saw the outcry from many trout
fishermen a week ago when one
suggested lowering the limits. I wish
they would join our limited group and
stand up against the lopsided
management process.  Before you know
it, the "man" is after all of us.
This federal and now state crap
affects all of us, whether you fish
for trout or tuna.

Be safe !!

Fished the L & N bridge Tuesday morning. 150 live shrimp produced 11
keepers and countless throwbacks. Wanted to run to halfmoon island
and bounce around the rigs in Lake Borgne,but the surrounding storms
put a damper on that plan. Off all next week if anyone is looking to
split cost with a competent first mate. 985-707-4936. Happy fishing
to all.

seabird

metairie, LA USA

offshore fish limits and seasons ---- what boggles my mind on this issue is that Plaquemine Parish / Venice et al can be said to be ground zero for this fishing, but the political heavyweights like John Alario, Billy Nungesser, Troy Carter, Walt leger who are from Plaquemine and know how important this is to their own constituents and parish, are hiding under their beds and don't say a word on the subject.   Incredible--if not despicable.  What a disgrace.  I guess they love kissing azzz and idolize a 30 year Washington hack like Melancon.

No amberjack. No red snapper.

A handful of grouper.
They have really screwed up the gulf ecosystem.
Create sanctuaries all over the gulf.

9 day snapper season for the guys that
predominantly fish weekends and give our
charter boat brothers 45 days ( and they fish just
about every day)

Sweetwater Marina

Delacroix, L USA

We launched quit a few boats today at
Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island with
mixed results.  Some groups caught quit a few
fish and others didn't do so great.  The good
news is the water is pretty decent on the outside
with pretty good clarity and we have plenty of
live shrimp for tomorrow.  So come on down to
Sweetwater Marina and give it a shot.  We wish
we had more great news to report, but Capt.
Jack says hang in there.  In about a month it's
going to be a whole different story.  The news
should be all good through the winter.  If you
would like to make a great fishing trip call us.  
Capt. Jack can take you during the week and we
have some great Captains who can take you on
the weekend.  So come on down to the second
launch on Delacroix Island, Sweetwater Marina,
and let Capt. Jack, Mr. Ronnie, Tony and Jessie
get you started.  They will put your boat in the
water, put you on the fish, and when you return
with an ice chest full of fish they'll clean 'em and
bag 'em for you.  And while you are here ask to
check out our lodging.  It's the best deal in
Delacrolix - sleeps 6, free launch, kitchenette,
cable, wifi. BBQ pit - all for just $159 a night.  
Just wake up and fish.  Whatever you need to
make your fishing trip a success, we probably
have it in our baitshop, including maps and
helpful tips from Mr. Ronnie and Tony.  Anything
we can do to help make your trip fun, successful
and safe - just ask.  We would love to see you at

Lafitte, LA USA

FISHING BETWEEN STORMS...

Today I had the pleasure of guiding good friend and customer Mr Mark Felker who brought along Ethan Barnett for a first time trip. The guys took a break from the farming business to relax and hopefully catch a few fish. We fished the lakes west of Lafitte using scented soft plastic shrimp to put 3 limits of reds and 2 bonus puppy drum on ice before the rains came in heavy this afternoon. A good time was had by all on this trip and Ethan got a taste of landing some hard fighting redfish. He used his bass fishing experience to his advantage. Many thanks to our buddy Mark for using our service and for introducing us to new friends. We look forward to their next one!

WE HAVE LOTS OF OPENINGS THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS SO GIVE US A CALL OR SEND AN EMAIL AND WE WILL BE HAPPY TO ARRANGE A CHARTER FOR YOU WITH LAFITTE'S HARDEST WORKING, MOST PROFESSIONAL FISHING TEAM!

Oneofthepack

Slidell, LA USA

             TEAM JO-JO

Oneofthepack had a good work out Tuesday, was thinking about posting on rodnreel.com for a first mate for Wednesday, when I notice I missed a call on my phone while I was in the gym. Called the missed number, go a rough response, bug Big Claude had me mixed up with someone else,  and the conversation clam down, and we got to talking. Seems he responded to our post for first mate a while back, but some reason we did not hook up. Big Claude was just checking to see how things were going and see when we could hook up, how is tomorrow says I…..phone dead…. Then yes says he. We set up to meet at Waffle House at 5:00 AM to start our journey down to out Disney World known as Delacroix Island
.

SIGNS

• Finally got to do video, (thanks to Big Mike Lane of rodnreel.com) on how to make Tamlesofthepack, Big Mike posted the video below, please check it out, if you fisherperson have any question on how, and what to use to make them give us a call 504-915-4896, or email us stanelyfink@charter.net.  Thanks Big Mike appreciate you posting for us.
• Met up at Waffle House, quick breakfast, loaded up the FORD transporter and off we go.
• Saw bunny rabbit along Hwy 11, (very good sign) saw nothing on Hay 90
• Passed on Waffle House, McDonnel and Last Stop food store, we had we needed to keep us hydrated.
• Check point Abel, water level looked to be normal in canal
• Check point Bravo, water coming in at Reggio Canal
• Reached the Bay Flat Sr home, not a sole around, deserted was it.
• Bay Flat Sr hanging high in her slings, with a little; movement back and forth with the wind, looked like she was doing a catching dance was she. Yamaha Dream Machine took one turn of the key, and she fired up and ready to go, Big Claude could not even hear the engine running.
• Loaded up the Bay Flat Sr, off to Lionel’s for some go juice, 2# of dead bait, and a pit stop
• Off to spot # 14 to start our fun day on the water

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• S.E. wind 3-4, then N.W. 8-1

• Partly / Sunny cloudy, most cloudy, nice over cast
• Temp cool, mild, warm, it too was nice today
• Water level normal, plus 6”
• Tide caught a staring rising tide, very good sign
• Water temp warm
• Water clarity:
 Spot # 14 a 4
 Spot # 23 a 3
 Spot # 64 a 3 minus
• Did not see any other boats commercial or pleasure, very lonely looking day

TECHNIQUE / STRATEGY:

• Have fun
• Give Big Claude a tour of our Disney World known as Delacroix Island, me think Big Claude already knew his way around Delacroix, but it has been awhile since he been out and about in the area.
• Big Claude a cork fisherperson, and a live bait specialist, our job today was to try and convince Big Claude tight lining and lures where the way to fish.
• Catch what catch can
• Find a spot  with the four fundamentals / criteria of catching:
1 Wind at your back
2 Moving water
3 Water clarity
4 Holding fish
• Item # 1 a none factor today, we had 3-4 spots to address wind, item # 2 was perfect timing, tail end of falling tide and a start of rising tide, # 3 clarity good all over, and 4, we hit a feeding frenzy, crazy (15) minutes at our second stop. Silverwonders where all over the place, birds diving, bait busting on the top of the water, and (2) alligators just to the right of us watching everything we were doing.

LURE DU JOUR:

• 3” Purple beetle matched up with Ό oz. round white head w/gold got us started, but we noticed the bait they were hitting was a lighter color so we switched.
• Next up, Matrix Shad Lemon Drop, matched up with H&H Ό oz. round white head w/gold hook, it was on,on, on, on, action time one after another did we get in the boat.
• Dead bait caught all the bottom feeders

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Started out at spot # 14,15,5,6 (51)t,23,21,20,60.61C,64 (21)t, stopped fishing at 11:30 AM, turned the Bay Flat Sr north for a very quick run back to the slip.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (71) Silverwodners, (61) throw backs
• (3) reds throw back
• (1) Bass
• (2) Fresh water Drum
• (1) Salt water Drum
• (12) fresh water cats
• (1) Gar
• (1) Gaff Top
• (3) Banana fish
• (3) Crabs
• (2) Oyster shells
• (2) Sticks
• (1) Bushel of grass
• (1) Bottom
• Saw (6) alligators
• Big Shadow not to be found
• (1) BIG ONE that got away, Big Claude hooked up to something, he fought for s few minutes got it to he boat, and it turned loose. We got to see a tail, but could not make out what it was. Now we digest of what took / happen, from what I got from first mate, it was my pole & reel that caused the release. My argument was that same pole & reel caught 38 # drums with no problem. But I don’t think Big Claude was of the same opinion, because he went back to his Penn pole & 2500 Penn reel for the rest of the day. Oneofthepack will admit the Shimano reel he was using does get tight sometimes, Big Claude felt the reel was to small and the rod to limber, but all I could say was the fish new whose line to bite on, cause if it would have been on Oneofthepack line it would have been all over for her.
• As with me and any other fisherperson, it was hard for Big Claude to get over not seeing / catching the monster, but he managed to put it behind him and started catching some more fishes.
• Exposed and educated a lot of small Silverwonders & reds to the H&H beetles and Matrix Shad lures, me hope they learned a lot and get a chance to grow bigger from this experience.
• Me think Big Claude now a believer about lures, so much so me think Gus will be getting a visit from Big Claude soon.
• Nice relaxing, cool, and quick trip, fun had by all
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Me think it came down to the one that got away, had that one been caught Big Claude may have walked away with the honors, but that was not to be, so………………………………..

SUGGESTIONS:

• If you going to use dead bait, suggest you buy fresh bait from seafood place, we had frozen bait today, small & soft, even their shell feel off.

• Fish all over Delacroix, small they are, but still fun to feel the tap, and set the hook

• As for the BIG Silverwonders everyone is posting about, my take, if all you do is keep posting and never get a line in the water you may never catch a big one. In my mind all fish caught today where BIG, in the sense they created BIG memories of our trip and gave us hope for future trips.

PONDER OF THE DAY:

Catching is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.

Hope to be back at them soon, until then:

Good Fishing

Dave Wiseman

New Iberia, LA USA

I just returned from talking to a La. Wildlife Agent on Darnell Rd. near New Iberia, about the green algae and I was told that it would not affect the eating of fish because most do not feed on the algae.  I asked about shrimp and oysters and he could not answer this, saying that this is more of a health issue and he did not know.  I asked when the algae would leave and I was told, "As soon as the water cools."  "The same conditions that make your lawn grow, affects the growth of the green algae."

I also asked if the N.I. sheriff still had emergency towing service if this service is needed.  The agent could not say for sure, but advised me/anyone to dial 911 and the service could be provided.  He also added that cell phone service almost covered the entire bay area.

Just a simple question.

When you are way out in Breton Sound and you see water hyacinth where you used to catch big trout and you go without a bite, what does that tell you?

Just keeping it simple!

STILL CHASING THOSE REDS AND DRUM...

We are still enjoying some good days on the water as of late. The trout are still slow but the redfish and drum are more than making up for it! Both species are schooling in the lakes east and west of Lafitte and we are sight fishing them for the most part. Doesn't get any better than that!

We are throwing H&H Baby bull Minnows and gold spoons for the redfish and good old shrimp on a jighead for the good eating puppy drum. The bite has been better late in the day so it is not necessary to leave early. Something to think about if you are interested in an evening charter.

WE HAVE PLENTY OPENINGS THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS FOR WEEKDAYS AND WEEKENDS SO COME ON DOWN AND TREAT YOURSELF TO SOME OF THE GREAT ACTION WE ARE EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE OPENINGS FOR THE FALL SEASON WHICH SHOULD BE AWESOME WHEN WE HAVE THE TROUT ON THE INSIDE AGAIN TO GO WITH THE REDS AND DRUM.

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 .

NOT GONNA RAIN ON OUR PARADE……

I had the pleasure of fishing J and S with United. We headed to the north marsh and fished the edges getting on a few fish at our second stop. We got chased to shelter to find some of our associates doing the same. Waited it out for an hour or so and went back. Put in several more then it played out. One here one there was the story as we fished our way through Eloi making a dozen stops on wells and rigs with not much to show. Got on on reef and hit pay dirt. The fish ate up for us. Picked through a few but ratio was good. Couldn’t of ended up any better, boxed 72 trout right as we ran out of bait. Took it to the house quick before the squalls intensified. Sorry for no pic!

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.

We had another successful day at the office - we stayed doubled up on tuna 40 to 90 pounds until this 9 foot blue marlin interrupted the party. After a few quick photos, he was released and swam happily away. After boating seven yellow fins up to 90 pounds and the 200 plus pound marlin we opted to leave them biting and head in.......but we ran into the largest school of whale sharks I have ever heard of (counted over 30)....some over 30 feet long.....needless to say we stayed watching the whale sharks for quite a while

In response to Mickey McGovern

Mickey,
Why do guides continue to catch fish?  
Because they are on the water everyday
following the trout and communicating
with other guides in their loop as to
where the fish are.  I don't blame them.  
They are some of the best.  Do yourself a
favor and book a trip with legendary
guide Johnny Nunez.  He will tell you how
bad things have gotten and why.  And it
ain't fresh water.  It's pressure.

And regarding Pack, he's not catching
much right now.  He mostly catches in the
fall and winter inside in Delacroix.

These are the idiots that elected obama in to office twice. They will never get it. There are now more holes on the east side of the river where "everybody's" fish used to come from. Now with all of the new breaks getting bigger by the second river water well past the barrier islands through most of the spawning seasons. Now the eggs sink to the bottom. More algae water tuning to hypoxic after the algae dies. Why is no one catching fish through out breton and chandelier sounds, why are all of your your top guides struggling in Venice, the "used to be trout fishing capital of the world" and all over for that matter,,,,,,you guessed it fresh water. LDWF is the CPRA's puppet. The proponents of diversions tell you the fishery will just move out further.....bull f$#@ing shit!!!!! Believe that and you are doomed! The river has major lingering effects even after the levels drop. Don't get me started I can go on and on!!!!! WAKE UP PEOPLE WAKE THE F!!@# UP ...........if not better sell your high dollar boats while you can!

Ha you got that right.  I hate those moochers.  They probably eat about 20 or so trout a day. I had one just laying on top behind my boat just eating every fish we thru back.  Felt like I was feeding a democrat.  I felt like shoving a cork in his blowhole.  Bwahahah.  I'm joking here  (kinda)

I think it is so many people fishing now and they put a lot of pressure on the fish. I'm 61 and can't remember when I didn't fish.  My uncle started us fishing in rented skiffs and let me tell you it was always an adventure.  Now everybody has fast boats with electronics that can go anywhere.  Also guides were practically unheard of years ago.  I have friends who are guides and have nothing against them.  They are good for our economy and work hard but they catch way more fish than the average fisherman and they better if they want to be successful but they are on the water almost everyday and will burn their own spots out.  I think limits should stay put because there is always going to be good seasons and bad but whatever they do I'll be out there having a good time because that's what it's all about for us anyway.  I've got a freezer full of fish and give away fish all the time.  If you think you have it bad check out Florida or any other states limits and you will realize how good we have it down here.  They are just happy to catch a couple and then throw them back.  Crazy I tell ya.

LOTS OF RAIN OVER THE WATER THIS WEEK!

We had Vance, Tim & Winston on board Saturday. We left out of Delta Marina early heading out west of the Mississippi River.

We had to stick and move dodging rain catching fish at almost every stop. Lots of undersized fish around at this time. The guys boated over 150 fish as we managed to catch 45 keeper Speckled Trout.

We got busted by Footsmonster. He caught us fishing one of his spots. LOL!

BIG THANKS TO VANCE, TIM, & WINSTON!

Mickey McGovern

ARLINGTON, TX USA

My first speckled trout trip was with Blackie Campo towing skiffs behind his lugger at Shell Beach in the '50s. I fished all of the spots mentioned from Grand Isle to the Pearl. Lake P. to the close rigs off G.I. to Breton Sound. I knew fishermen that almost always caught fish and the other 90% that only caught a few if any. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have their own boat to fish, I went from rowing skiffs to having my own Pro-Line. Guides provide those who don't have the luxury of owning to enjoy the sport. I met Dutch Prager a few times at docks in Louisiana. Like myself he has reached that point he needs a guide to enjoy the sport. The guides are in the 90% that know how and where to fish. If the specs are in such bad shape how do guides continue to catch fish? Lowering limits to appease those who don't catch fish is pretty silly. Learn how to fish an area like Pack does and stop the BS.

MISSISSIPPI SOUND TRIPLETAIL REPORT!!!

Mr.Guillaume Kruger and wife Lindsey from Taiwan were down in the city on vacation for a few days and heard about the areas great fishing. They jump about my boat over at The Rigolets Marina with a tank of there famous live shrimps.We started fishing at the bridges to find only a few under size trout and a lone Red.This was not what they came for so I pointed my boat toward the Miss sound looking for Tripletail.We managed to get on a few but the boating pressure was unreal so I changed my rigs over to find a few goods ones before we call it a early day(dinner reservations).

Ran my good clients for many years Frank and Morgan on the same route to find more under size trout at the bridges so I headed east to get on a quick tripletail bite before we got hammered by the perfect storm.

Had Mike Lively.brother Glen and co workers out the next day so I again ran the same route with a little better trout bite on the bridges but Mike informed me real quick that he is totally hooked on tripletail fishing so again I headed east and again got on a good bite before the big thunderheads,heavy rains, and 20 kts winds spoiled the party. All fish were caught on Rigolets Marina live shrimp under corks.

In response to Ole School

I think your email is accurate about catching
limits. If you read guide reports, Sweetwater
reports, Breton Sound reports, etc., etc., you find
that most people catch less than a limit or maybe
no keepers, so my question is why change the
limit??? Is your it your idea that if we lower the
limits, guides will have to catch less, or do you
think that people will be happier to report they
limited out, yet they only caught 15 each?
One other thought. I must agree that the
weather, winds, have hurt fishing this year.
During the summer, I now fish Leeville, instead
of Venice and Delacroix, because the Mississippi
is so high. The fish are plentiful there and they
are getting larger, but we do catch a lot of small
ones also. In closing, I get to fish about twice a
month and I like to freeze some of my catch for
eating later. Can't do that with a 15 fish limit.

It was a great day catching fish on Friday with the Ohio gang. Capt. Anthony Kyzar and CaptChris Venable along with me made these guys trip totally worth the ride down to South Louisiana. Red fish trout and drum were all hungry and waiting for us from the first cast to the last. Its time for catching big reds and drum come on down and give it a try.

Limits--I dont have alot of faith in the
Wildlife biologists.  They try hard, but
fish counting what you cant see and in
an area you cant cover completely in a
boat is an inexact science at best--
regardless of the well written,
scientific sounding reports and
articles. You should go by the proof in
the pudding. Example---there is only one
reason and one reason only that guides
are now promoting the catching of drum
and sheephead--because they dont get
trout all the time like they used to.  
Wake up everyone.

Lake Runner

Slidell, LA USA

Fish stories, I started fishing Hopedale back when the MRGO was just about to finish placing the rocks at the end of the channel.  We would fish the gas flares at night in the sound, some where near Goser Island.  The inland flares in lake Fortuna, lake Eloi, Deadmans island. The inside lakes were hit and miss. We would come home with 3 and 4, 48 quart Iglos ice chest from the out side flares. We ran the inside lakes at night only using a compass and a a map put out by a fellow named Arcenaux (trail blazer). Day time fishing my favorite spot was Point Chico, caught good fish, Bay Eloi,caught plenty fish would catch fish there till late evening. Christmas Camp Lake would almost always produce all the White Trout and Channel Mullet you wanted, not big fish but plenty.  The flares are gone and the inside fishing seems to be seasonal and spotty at best. The land masses are dwindling and fresh water is were it never was before. But I do remember old timers back then saying they caught green trout in Bayou LaLoutre. I was a part of the St. Bernard Sportsman League that fought to remove the Black family and their purse seine operation from ours waters,to make RedFish and Speckled game fish and not to be fished with gill nets and purse seines. Fishing is an adventure and when it's stops being that I will stop going.
