No offense taken. I certainly wasnt trying to imply anything by my remarks. I am speaking from my own experience. I do own a boat and I know what it takes each trip out to get there, bait, ice, GAS in both the truck and boat, all before you catch the first fish. I fished an area with no success and then very limited success for a few years. I saved and took a charter trip and learned more about the water, tides and bait and how to fish the area in one trip than I had learned in a couple years. I split the trip with my brother and we took our sons.
When I wanted to learn Pontchatrain, I cut to the chase. I have made a couple trips over the last couple years with Capt Eric and the knowledge gained is invaluable to me.
I would also like to extend an offer to all of you to join our saltwater fishing club, Geaux Coastal, in which Capt Eric is President. We have monthly meetings and tournaments. Its not about money. About fishing, teaching our children and learning from different people, guest speakers, etc. Also teaming up with the different members for the tournaments helps in the learning process. You dont even have to have a boat to join and fish. It is $60 per year.
You can also email me back and I will share some of the things I have learned that may help a little your next trip to the bridges.
Good Luck and tite lines!!!
