My family decided to spend some time together this weekend on our fall break. We got to Cocodrie Friday morning and tried to go catch some fish. Despite the windy conditions and choppy water, we decided to go chase some birds in the bay. I grab my pole and got to the front of the boat. Before I even threw my line in the water, I knew I needed to pick up my phone just in case I fell in. I took my iPhone 7 out my pocket, which I got for my birthday less than a week ago, and handed to my mom. Well, that didn't go as planned because I lost my footing and it hit the front of the boat and went right into the water. After this incident, no one felt like fishing. After a few calls to Verizon we decided later that afternoon that we would go fishing again and we caught 4 trout and 1 redfish. Saturday morning we went a little later in the morning because of the showers that were popping up around us and we caught 11 trout. For some reason the trout that morning didn't want artificial and were only hitting on minnows. My dad and I made a trip Saturday afternoon and the conditions were perfect. We found a group of birds and caught 7 specks and 26 white trout. Almost all the trout we caught in the afternoon were on a chartuese DOA Shrimp. The whole weekend we managed to catch 48 trout and 1 red. Had an awesome weekend with the fam. Those new iPhones may be waterproof, but they aren't floatable. Also some of the photos are from me and my sister from years past.
