Lump trip

Site Sponsor
We made it back out to the lump Saturday with a great group from the New Iberia area.

These boys had worked hard all year long and now they were in a lull after the cane harvest and wanted to blow some steam. They arrived Saturday morning looking a little rough after having some of Kentucky's finest. The buoys seemed to suggest that the front was hung up offshore with calm seas on the back side and 13.5 foot seas on the south side of the front.

We decided to let the boys have a power nap and we looked at it again at 9am. The call was made to take the shot.

We arrived at the lump to find 12 to 15 foot rollers. It looked like the intro into the old Hawaii Five-O TV show. The seas were actually fun to fish in until the Kentucky Burbon started to take it's revenge. It was a tough day with a bunch of great guys. Three nice tuna ended up hitting the dock at the end of the day, the largest going just at 100lbs.

We ran out at 9:45am, made it to the lump before noon with no fog. Left the lump just at dusk with fog on the lump. It cleared up about 5 miles off the lump and with the exception of an area of about 5 miles of open water fog, we had unlimited visibility all the way to Grand Isle.

We have several scattered days open if anyone wants to try their hand at the big boys.
