Fishing Magician Charters

Well guys sorry for not having any reports. Our computer has been giving us trouble. The fishing has been great. We are still catching lots of trout and reds in the Biloxi Marsh. Check out the pictures from the last 4 days.

We have 2 boat slips available for rent. They have electric, water, fish cleaning tables, and great parking. They are located just up the bayou from Campo's Marina.

If you want to get in some good fishing before the winter now would be a good time. Give us a call to book a trip you will never forget.

Venice, LA USA

Great fishing trip today with Sajeeve Mathews from
Broken Arrow, OK. The clouds, light rain and
breeze made it a cool day.

Started the trip on a school of spanish mackerel.
Gave Sajeeve a good recipe on those mackerels to
try. Then hooked up a few flounders and plenty
throw back redfish and drum.
When we got back inland around the reeds, thats
when we hooked up on nice redfish. I kept two
redfish as well as Sajeeves limit.

What a great day of fellowship and fishing. All
thanks and love to our one and true God.

In response to lannce

There are several routes from BSM to Lake Coquille. You can start by the manmade canal, then enter Bayou Bernard. Or, you can take the canal in front of BSM and go through the initial lagoon or first bayou on the right, which also eventually go into Bayou Bernard.

Eventually, there will be a fork going south....either is fine.

The main bayous are deep, but the lagoon is shallow, as is the entrance from the manmade canal to Bayou Bernard. Best to stay on plane. Its also easy to make a wrong turn and get stuck in the numerous side lagoons and bayous, so be careful.

All this is great fishing in the fall for reds and drum, and sometimes trout.

Venice, LA USA


While the river rising has affected many anglers, along with high winds, I managed to use those 2 factors to my success, limiting out everytime I went out last week.

I found some clear water and we were catching these beautiful orange colored redfish, some were very dark, others were very bright, but they weren't the average bland, blue tailed redfish that comes out of the river.

Here's some pics.

Now as for me, today I'll be off chasing a 200 lb. tuna with a speargun!!!

The guy on the right of the picture, hadn't picked up a rod n reel in 30 years. Needless to say, after my coaching, he caught more fish this day than anyone else on the boat.

LAFITTE REPORT...

TREY KOGER'S TRIP

Yesterday and today I had the pleasure of guiding good friends and customers Trey Koger, Frank Carey, and Pastor Richard Wiman. We enjoyed 2 great days of fishing and fellowship and thankfully, the fish cooperated also. This group of guys love to catch the hard-pulling redfish that we are blessed to have in abundance here in the south Louisiana marshes. Both days produced limits of nice redfish and a few bonus fish to boot. We added 4 puppy drum and around 18 trout(mixed white and speckled) to the redfish limits to just about fill the box. Looks like the trout are starting to filter in and we are hearing reports of some even better catches of specks. This fall is shaping up to be a great one especially when the trout will appear in good numbers to be caught along with the redfish. Gonna be some full ice chests for sure!

The last 2 days were special ones spent with great friends and were a true blessing. Enjoying the time on the water was awesome and the good fishing was definitely the icing on the cake! Thanks again to Trey, Frank, Pastor Richard, and ALL of the friends we have been so fortunate to meet while doing what we love to do for a living.

COME SEE US DOWN HERE IN LAFITTE LOUISIANA!!!!!

Violet, LA USA

Went Friday morning for a quick trip with my buddy Tony to Delacroix. Chatted with Lionel for a few minutes and headed out to Little Lake. Wind was blowing hard, tried a few spots on the North side without much luck. Headed to the Lake Bartolo area, casted off the bow with fresh fish under a cork. Waited awhile , nothing. Placed the pole down to rig another lime  and heard a thumping. Good thing for the high bow are my pole would have been in the drink. Lunged for the rod, stepping on and crushing my Oakley sunglasses. Reeled in the fish,cussin all the while. Put 25 inch Red in the ice chest, still cussin. Then I saw why the glasses cost $150.00. All that remained intact was the front of the glasses with 1 lens. Reached down and snapped the other lens in and well as the two side stems, JUST LIKE NEW! WOW! feeling good now with the first fish and sunglasses back to normal. Caught one more 20" red, then headed to Pointe Fienne area. Found a nice bite on the East Side. Ended the day with 8 Reds and 2 drum and the sunglasses in tack.
Cleaned the fish at the launch, picked up a few soft shells and headed back home. Great day on the water with a good friend, can't wait till next trip!

Cast and Blast Charters-Captain Chris Pike

Delacroix, LA USA

Teal season wrap up!

This years Teal season was below average as
far as the numbers of birds we had. We did
shoot limits a few times but we just didn't have
concentrations of birds. The Teal season is no
indication of how the regular season will be and
we can't wait for it to open on November 15! The
amounts of feed I have on my property this year
will no doubt hold the birds for us all season. We
are blessed to have another 60 day season guys
so don't miss out. I make the hunts the most
comfortable you could ask for to ensure you and
your group thoroughly enjoy the hunt. My guides
and I work everyday to make sure we are on top
of the most concentrations of ducks possible to
ensure your group the most action possible. I
have plenty openings to accomadate groups
from 2-20 and offer first class lodging and
outstanding food to provide you with a forever
memorable trip. We can customize any trip to
work with the requests of you and your group.
One thing I'd like to share because I get asked
alot, you don't have to book a cast and blast
necessarily at all, you can book just a hunt, so
don't feel as if you have to book a fishing trip too.
Give me a call and come experience what
Delacroix has to offer!

On the fishing side of things, the trout have
made a big push into the interior marsh and
when the wind lays down for us we have been
having very good catches along with the redfish.
October through December is going to be
outstanding so don't miss out on the
phenomenal winter fishing that we have to offer!

Please check out my website at
www.LaSaltWaterFishing.com and let Cast and
Blast Charters show you a truly professional and
first class trip to Sportsmans Paradise! Call us at
504-427-4973, we have been in business for 10

AN AMAZING REDFISH BITE WITH GREAT FOLKS!

We had the pleasure to guide regulars from TN, Mr. Bill & Mr. Harry, also along on the trip was Mr. Wayne from New Orleans. The guys will fish with us again tomorrow.

We left out of the Delta Marina in Empire, LA early with the weather looking much better than yesterday as it rained all day yesterday.

Well, the rain yesterday had the Redfish hungry today. We fished the east side of the Mississippi River with high water and a falling tide. Just the way we like it!

Fishing the shallow oyster flats using live shrimp under a popping cork the bite was as good as it gets. We boated to many Redfish to count keeping our limits of beautiful Redfish.

Battled the winds Saturday morning hoping the weatherman was wrong as usual but those smokestacks don't lie when they make a sharp 90 degree turn coming out the stacks.  Tried the islands in Barataria Bay but after we anchored down my boat got a good washdown when every third wave or so would wash over the bow.  We headed in to Wilkerson Bayou and wound up with 5 drums, 1 red and 1 trout.  Fished the drains with dead shrimp under a cork.  Gretna Fest next weekend so no fishing.  The bride reserved that weekend for me so let it be written let it be said.  The boss has spoken.

Eden Isles, LA USA

We fished the OLL rodeo Sat. in the
wind.The bad news is we didn't catch
that much...the good news is other
people caught even less. We started by
the trestles at daylight with live
shrimp I had gotten the previous
evening to avoid the chaos at Rigolets
on Sat. morning. That was a good
move...We pulled up by FB 4 and caught
a nice flounder and a sheepshead which
we kept for the rodeo entry. Then we
moved down to #174 and caught a 4 1/2
lb flounder,a 1 lb flounder, and
another sheepshead. In between we must
have caught 8 stingrays which I don't
allow in the boat...I just cut the hook
off and tie on another one. Then we ran
over by Lake Borgne and Lake Catherine
where we didn't get a bite...too
windy.So we headed back to the rodeo at
the Dock where our fish dominated the
board due to a lack of fish. Our kids
got 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for Flounder, and
2nd and 3rd for Sheepshead...needless
to say they were thrilled as they posed
for pictures with their trophys. That
was worth the price of admission right
there! They continued to fish and have
a good time at the dock for the rest of
the day as we ate and drank adult
beverages.  WE were lucky with the rain
so it was a great day overall. The
rodeo is really a great family fun day.

In response To ReelSeaman

I had the same thing happen to me while fishing in Bayou Bienvenue last winter. I was fishing in the Bayou joust off the middle when a young 40ish yo kiddie was coming up on me at a high rate of speed. I vigorously flagged the idiot down which he did right after he created a big wake with my 81 yo crippled Dad and his 70 yo younger brother in the boat. I am 60 myself. I yelled out for him to slow his f-=ing boat down when approaching my or any other boat that are anchored and fishing. His smart ass response to me was I was fishing in the middle of the bayou of which I responded by asking if he was drunk or on drugs. Well after a good 5 minutes of exchanging pleasantries with the dumbf--k and he moves 1 block over and started fishing. I got my cell phone and took 3 pictures of him, his boat, and boat numbers. Under LDWF Rules of the Road for Vessels Sec D rule 14 he was in clear violation of. Filed the paperwork with LDWF and a ticket was issued to this bastard who endangered the passengers on my boat. Violence is not needed for this growing number of trash on the water. Let the system work as it is slow but does work. Unfortunately during these times it is wise to carry a gun as I do on board to protest yourself, your crew, and your property against these strung out dope heads who are patrolling our once sacred waterways. Be careful but be safe as the good old days of the boat operating friendly 60s, 70, and 80s are long gone and there are a lot of HYSTERICAL idiots operating on our waters.

Marsh Monster

Mandeville , LA USA

Windy,windy,windy.................

Fished Saturday out of BSM and with the 12-15
knot winds the decision to stay in the marsh and
chase reds wasn't a tough one. Headed down
Loutre to stump lagoon to beat the windblown
shoreline with live and dead shrimp, anchored
up and after a few minutes found the reds there
and hungry even with the winds picking up to
15+ knots, fished stretch of shore until about
11:00 picking up 8 reds, 1 drum, 1 flounder and a
lone trout. We decided to head to St.Malo to try
and pick up a few more reds. Found what looked
to be a fishable shoreline and anchored up and
fished a few cuts in the marsh picking up 5 reds
and 2 drum bringing the total count to 13 reds, 3
drum, 1 flounder and 1 single trout. Headed in
around 1:00, I believe we could of caught our 3
man limit but the girlfriend had to go to work so
we wrapped it up. The key  wasn't anything
special just fishing the windblown shoreline,
being patient and fishing hard, the quality of the
bait was questionable at best but that's all part of
it, all in all a great day in the marsh and looking
forward to the next one, monster out………

Captain Jack has a boat launch that is located directly in front of Bayou Gentilly.

You have access to plenty of inside fishing spots.

Ask Captain Jack for his advice.

Remember Sweetwater Marina is the Second Launch in Delacroix.
But they are Number 1 in Customer Service.

You can't get that with Satellite.

In response to Barnacle Bill

It may be awhile before the Trout move inside.
Seems like the schedule is a little later this year.

Once the Trout move in, it will be time to do the OAK RIVER TROLL.

Waiting for the Oak River Areas become productive.

Need a few good Cold Fronts to move in.

Once the shrimp show up on the inside, the Trout will follow.

Then the fishermen show up in droves in Oak River.

Until then, get the gear ready.
Learn the areas.

               TEAM JO-JO

Big Ronnie called early Thursday morning, who you going fishing with this weekend was the question, you says I, who else says he, you says I, can Big Tyler (grandson) go with us says he, yes says I, what time says he 5:00 AM, says I, and same meeting place as always , (Team Jo-Jo’s official meeting place) Waffle House in Chalmette says I.

SIGNS:

• Got to spend daughter / dad night, (Wednesday)   at Hollywood casino playing cards, table of card players were trying to guest our relationship, they thought I was her sugar daddy. After a dinner break and we returned one of them had to ask what our relationship was, Daughterofthepack Big Jodie says he the best daddy in the world, and left it at that.
• Thursday trip home from work saw a bunny rabbit and 6 ducks (flying) along Hwy 11
• Friday had some real, real, real, good salty, waterier oysters , (their back) at Mr. Ed’s oyster house.
• With the hint of cool weather, the fisherperson where out in full force, we had 3 boats at Waffle House, each ice station had them 2 deep, and the gas stations where lined up with them.
• Had a little traffic on the way down to our Disney World known as Delacroix Island.
• Bay Flat Sr in her slings looking bored, but that was not for long, once we got all our gear aboard and fired her up, she was ready for a fun day on the water. She even got a new toy, GPS that Big Andrew gave us.

CONDITIONS:

• Perfect
• N.E. wind 18-20 steady all day
• Slack tide, than started to fall
• Partly cloudy
• Mild temps, felt great when running around with the wind in your face
• Water temp 76F
• Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was a 3 minus, you could see the lure down about 6”
• Not many boats out in the areas we where fishing

TECHNIQUE:

• Anchor up cast & retrieve, slow along the bottom, (nothing)
• Anchor up with some of Lionel’s Big lively delights, rigged up Carolina style,  3/8 oz. sliding sinker ,swivel, leader, hook, shrimp, hooked through the tail bottom up, cast out and let it run with the current, raise your pole up a little, real in slack when you felt the tap set the hook.
• Cork nothing
• Oak River Troll nothing.

LURE DU JOUR:

• H&H Beetle nothing
• Matrix Shad Lemon drop nothing
• Lionel’s Big delights did the trick

AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:

Spot # 64,61A,B,C,61,60,21,22,23,24,25,26,43,6,5,15,14,2A, called it a day around 10:20, turned the Bay Flat Sr north for a quick bumpy ride across Little lake back to the slip.

OUR REWARD:

• Lived to fish another day
• (4) Drum
• (6) Hard heads
• (2) Crabs
• (3) Oyster Shells
• (2) Bottoms
• (2) Bushels of grass
• (2) Extra poles (Big Ronnie)
• (2) Marshes (Big Ronnie)
• Got to fish with Big Tyler, told him Oneofthepack owes him a rain check.
• Got to fish with the best fisherperson I know, Big Ronnie always makes our day on the water very interesting.
• Enjoyed some of the best luncheon meat sandwiches, snacks and drinks known to man, thanks to Big Mel, Big Ronnie’s best half, thanks Big Mel.
• Spent a real cool breezy morning running around Oneofthepack ‘s most  favorite part of this earth, Team Jo-Jo’s Disney World known as Delacroix Island.
• Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.

FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

Big Tyler got us started with a crab, went on to catfish, and even hooked up with a drum, but do to Oneofthepack not being able to find the fishes, his efforts would not take the honors today.

Oneofthepack was in the hunt with a drum or two, but once he caught a catfish, bait fishing was over with.

That leaves us with Big Ronnie, caught a drum, catfish, crab, oyster shells, (not as good as Mr. Ed’s) and even with the efforts at our first  stop, which are as follows:

* First cast throws pole over
* Second cast catches extra poles
* Third cast into the marsh
* Fourth cast into the marsh
* Fifth cast catches extra poles
* Sixth cast makes it in the water

Those of who knows Big Ronnie, was on standby for poles to be broken, rods thrown overboard, but my man (As have I) have mellowed out over the years, some more than others. However if we would have been in a Silverwonders feeding frenzy, I have no doubt (him or I) rods and reels would have been going overboard.

The true fisherperson of the day Team Jo-Jo’s Big T-Doc (capt) Big Pablo, and Big Dale fishing out of Big T-Doc 23 foot SeaChaser who had 15 big reads for 10:40 AM, hats off to them, real nice trip. They where fishing the same areas as our team, but they had a better Capt.


SUGGESTIONS:

This Friday is the St Tammany HBA rodeo (goggle it) they will be at the Rigolets, weight-in in from 2 to 4 (verify this correct) stop by and see who will be the real fisherpersons of that day.  Oneofthepack & crew Big Ronnie, Big Jon, Big William (aka Oneofthepack2) will be a team, and Big T-Doc , Bog Pablo, Big Adrian, and Big Dale will also be down In our Disney World looking for the winner, red, trout, flounder, drum,bass,coraker, and BIG FISH, hope to see all you fisherperson at the weight-in.

Oneofthepack will be out and about Thursday looking for the hot spots to fish for the rodeo, know I don’t have to fish the area I did Saturday that’s for sure, but our team wants to try a make a good showing for the rodeo, so we need some new spots to fish.

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

Good Fishing

Team Jo-Jo & Oneofthepack

P.S.

I have a new Hummingbird depth / fish finder if any of you fisherperson happen to be at Lionel one morning and  would like to show me how to set it up, I would surely appreciate it. The screen is all brown, cannot distinguish any fish and/or bottom.

Windy conditions have been great for Teal season. But
it does effect and limit us on our fishing. Makes it
really tuff for the offshore guides as well to get out.
We had an evening duck hunt booked on Thursday
with nothing happening in the morning. Last minute
call for inland fishing on a cancelled offshore trip due
to rough conditions. we took a group of six, two
boats, and went red fishing.

Shallow, calm pockets produced nice 20"-27" redfish.
took some time trolling, casting, cork, jig head, dead
shrimp. Three hours for two boats, six men limits
redfish, couple drumfish, sheepshead. Beautiful day
for inland fishing when the offshore is rough.
Needless to say, these guys got offshore the next day
and did really good on the tuna.

2014 Venice Teal Season was the best I've had in
years. Big groups of blue wings, plenty of feed, and
windy conditions gave us a blessed season. Morning
or evening for the past nine days brought in limits
every hunt.

We had a great time with Kim and Scott Sebastion's
group for the last three hunts. These twin brothers
are serious when it comes to numbers and
competition. Scott's group was always up on the
numbers at start, but Kim's group always finished on
top.

The first thirty minutes after shooting time there was
nothing happening. And it was on after that, non stop
for the next hour every hunt.

Pintails and gadwalls are showing up already along
with a few flocks of green wings. a sure sign winter is
on the way. The ponds are loaded with all the wild
food they need. Teal season was awesome, but duck
season is going to be better.

Season starts  November 15- December 7; December
20-January 25.
weekends are booking fast, opening days are booked.
We offer blast and cast all inclusive trips as well as
regular duck hunting and fishing trips.

Waterfowl Specialist Guide Service

Delacroix Island, LA USA

Waterfowl Specialist Guide Service is now scheduling
hunts for the 2014- 2015  duck season. We are
excited to see what this year has in store for us, with
the marsh lands healthy and plenty of Hydrilla and
Widgeon grass, its sure to be a great year. Make sure
to come experience some of the finest duck hunting
Southeast Louisiana has to offer with St. Bernards
own Capt. Jimmy Corley.

The evening before each hunt we scout out all
properties in search of the best place to hunt that
holds the most birds to insure for a great time and
hunt.

All hunts are done from Gator Trax boats with pop up
blinds so you won't get cold,wet or muddy, and we
also have stationary blinds for when the birds get
educated late in the season. Also we have the camp
available with an option of some of Louisiana's finest
cajun cooking. The camp sleeps six people and has a
big walk around porch so you can relax and enjoy the
view of our pristine marsh lands.

Or if you would like to do some fall fishing now is
the time to do so. With the trouts moving inshore and
the abundance reds in the marsh, October makes for
a phenomenal month to fish.

The dates or set for November 15 through December
7 and December 20 through January 25 If you would
like to schedule a hunt or fishing trip, you can
contact Capt. Jimmy Corley by phone at (504)258-

Fishing and work partner working Friday with Captain Frank Moore on a fishing charter.

Solo trip it is!

Seven boats on trailers go by at the Paris Road stop light and at the ice house in Chalmette. 1 possum, 1 armadillo and 2 pigs roadside enroute to BSM. Arrived at launch 3rd in line. Glen out and about filling livewells with lively saltwater crickets, giving sound advice, and joking with us regular customers. Launched Little Tiki in very high water again, parked the truck, picked up my lively saltwater crickets and the guys ahead of me in line still farting around at the launch. Reminded me of weekends and why I rarely fish them. Then the wind hit me as I was motoring up Bayou La Loutre in the no wake zone. Forecast was 8mph with 13 mph gusts. This was a 15-17 knot wind in my face and I hoped it was a gust. I was planning on exploring the bayous and ponds on the edge of Lake Eugene but not in this much wind.

Change of plans. Decided to do some more exploration of the shallow ponds paralleling Bayou La Loutre to the east. You know the ones. Where the only access is at the pilings on the left halfway to Stump Lagoon. Laura and I did a little exploration of them a couple weeks ago and came out with limits before 11. Warning, this is not a good place to go in larger boats that draft much water. You will run aground. At low tides it’s a place for polling only and high tides trolling motors or polling only for shallow draft flats like mine. Sneaking by the pilings I motored in in the silence of darkness. At the end of the little bayou the shallow water alarm sounded – 2 feet or less. Shut her down, raised the motor and had to pole off the shoreline the wind had driven me into to lower the trolling motor. The last time we were here Laura and I went North, I was going south today.
I let the wind carry Little Tiki down the narrow bayou only steering with the trolling motor. I was going too fast so I tied my homemade Cajun anchor short and let the end drag the bottom to slow me down. Now I could spend time looking for bait, wakes from reds, nervous water, and cast to promising points, trenasses, and cuts. Still I wasn’t seeing any action or movement. I drifted around a point and several teals exploded off the water 5 feet from my face. Almost wet myself. No hunting here, its posted. Their taking flight spooked something as the little pond to my left came alive. Wakes and shrimp skipping across the surface in desperation to stay alive. Dropped the Cajun anchor to the bottom and sent a saltwater cricket 12 inches under a Versamax cork sailing to the back of the pond only to watch it fly down wind into the marsh grass. And it wouldn’t be the last time it happened today. Rebaited and sidearmed the cork inches from the grass. A couple quick pops of the cork and the fight was on. He went straight under the boat and down the bayou. It was a Chinese fire drill to get the rod under the anchor line and around the trolling motor shaft with the reel screaming the whole time. After 20 minutes or so I finally got what seemed to be fifty yards of line back on the spool and the 26 inch golden red into the dance in the cooler. Laughing to myself I wished Santa would bring me my “Go Pro Silver” early so I could have shared this hilarious battle between man and fish. Several more casts into the little pond – nothing. Raising the Cajun anchor I slowly drifted on with the wind.

By the time I reached the first large pond I had released 7 rat reds and one small hardhead. One rat wasn’t much bigger than the gold spoon he tried to devour – maybe 5 inches long. Drifting along fishing every point, trenasse, and cut in the pond resulted in several more rats on live shrimp and a weedless gold spoon. At the end of the pond the shoreline exploded in front of me. I sailed the saltwater cricket into the foray and waited. I went to pop the cork and the rod nearly jerked out of my hands. I was in for a ride on this one – literally. When the reel wasn’t screaming he was pulling the boat at will into the next pond. With one hand on the rod I dropped the anchor to the bottom at the mouth of the second larger pond. The first time he saw the boat he turned and took off around an island. Now I had to lift the anchor and steer around the island while fighting this powerful red. Man I need that “Go Pro Silver”. Santa if you read this I really really really want to share these adventures with others. After 3 more runs I got him boatside, dipped the net and he was bigger than the net. That’s when things got interesting. After several more tries I got half of him nose first in the net, turned the net vertical with him beating the side of Little Tiki with his tail. Just as I was lifting him out of the water the net separated from the handle, back into the water he went and he took off with my net, me holding the handle. Before the run ended the line went slack and I reeled in my net with no handle. I estimate he was close to 40 inches long with a very large girth.

Dropping both anchors to keep Little Tiki steady in the wind I worked the pond shorelines with live shrimp and a gold spoon. After an hour or so there were 3 nice reds dancing in the cooler and another 5 rat reds released to grow another day. Ever tried landing 24 and 26 inch reds without a net handle? It’s interesting to say the least. And definitely a wet experience. I drifted south west with the wind down a trenasse not much wider than my boat into another narrow very shallow pond. With the tide going out I decided to work as much of the pond from the mouth. I caught and released 2 reds over 30 inches and eight more rat reds to catch another day. Not wanting to get stuck in the mud I decided to head out and see if the specks had arrived at the mouth of Stump Lagoon. It took me almost an hour to get to the deeper bayou with my trolling motor against the wind. Letting the wind push me up against the bank I enjoyed the marsh and its inhabitants while snacking on an apple and doughnut washed down with cold coffee.

I worked the mouth of Stump Lagoon with lively saltwater crickets under a cork, freelined with a split shot, Carolina rigged, and on a double drop shot rig. I cast vudu shrimp, beetles in various colors, and some hard plastics till about noon with only one 20 inch drum dancing in the cooler. A half dozen, or so, boats went idling by with most doing ok on reds, a few specks, but no limits of either. Just before I left 2 boats slowed to an idle when they saw me fishing and this big fancy boat came flying around them (between me and them) sending wakes over my stern. One of the boaters he passed said he knew who the guy was was going to kick his %*&*&ing $#@+ for me. I don’t condone violence but I hope he learns some boating etiquette. I don’t care how big or small your boat is, slow down and show others respect when you pass them if they are fishing. I decided not to wait for the late afternoon bite and head in.

Another wonderful morning in our beautiful marsh.
Water clarity (1 – 10 scale): 7 plus in the ponds, 2 or 3 at best elsewhere
Wind: steady 12 knots all day with gusts close to 18-20knots
3 slot reds
3 over slots released – 1 monster of his own doing
22 rat reds released
1 nice black drum
4 hard heads
1 20 inch slimy sail cat
1 oyster shell
¼ bushel of grass
1 broken net

The day was a 10 less ½ point for the A*# hole who sent wakes over my stern.

Man I love this place. Till next time…
