A different kind of request

Site Sponsor
Brian Guidry called me a few months back requesting a fishing trip but wanting to go down memory lane. He wanted to go look at where his dad’s camp was 50 years ago in which he and his brother Joe used to go and fish on weekends. Brian now lives in Nebraska and he brought brother Joe, his daughter Lacey and her boyfriend Andrew/Randy/Randal (he has multiple names) lol. It was a chilly start but once the sun came up we found the reds stacked up feeding on little Minnows. A ton of throwbacks were caught and if I had to guess it was 3 to 1 throwbacks to keepers. Green Hornet Matrix Shad and the blueback tsunami tightlined did the trick. We added 3 trout to the mix which was a surprise because the water temp was under 50. Once the K2 was full we headed down memory lane idling down the bayou where the camp used to sit 50 years ago.
