Another full week of Catching

Jack Selman and crew were back with me. Trout was on the menu and they didn't disappoint. It was lights out action as soon as we pulled up. The trout were tearing up our double rigged Matrix Shad every cast. #100 hit the K2 at 7:20. On our way in we stopped and drifted one bank and added a quick six reds before heading in. Great time fishing with these guys. Big thanks to Capt Lacour for taking care of Cody Lenert and family, they had a great time.

Gaiennie Lumber crew were back again. We started where we left them biting the day before, but the bite was way slower. We picked away all morning as they never turned on. All three boats put a mess of fish together and everyone was happy. Thanks to Capt Miller and Labat for running the other two boats. Thanks to Capt Lombard for taking care of my good customer Davian Bayham and his son and Capt Broussard for putting Ronald Bello's crew on the trout.

We started the day off trout fishing. We even picked up some live shrimp being the bite was slow yesterday, but all we caught on them were catfish. We stuck to the double rigged Matrix Shad picking away at a few trout. With the heat machine kicking in high gear we pointed the bow North and went catch a quick limit of reds and took it to the dock. Always a good time with these guys.

Doubled back on a afternoon trip with a group that wanted reds and we put the smack down on them. We started fishing at 4:30 and had our limit of 20 reds iced down at 4:45. Fast and furious every cast bite. My guys caught and released another 20-30 fish before we headed back to the dock. What a incredible experience for these guys.

Brad Smith and his son joined me on the Bluewave. I told them the trout bite had been slow the previous days, but they wanted to try. We were greeted with a lil chop and no bite. We made a move and picked away adding a handful before we decided to head North to bust up the reds. Once we arrived at the hot spot the guys started reeling in reds and missing a few. We moved a little and they got on a good run putting their limit in the boat. The sky turned black and the temperature dropped 20 degrees as a big storm approached us. We called it quits with 11 reds on ice and headed back in beating the rain. Big thanks to Capt Labat for taking care of Dennis Neil's crew.

Josh, Jason, and their dad from Kentucky joined me today. With the winds up I told them it would be a redfish day. The morning started off very slow picking away. We finally got on a good run getting up to 18 then the bite quit. One more short move and #20 hit the K2 cooler. Fresh bait shrimp under a cork has been the ticket. Another great day with these guys. Capt LB ran the second boat busting the reds also.

Day 2 with Josh, Jason, and their dad started off extremely slow! We stayed patient, very patient!! The fish never started to bite. We moved and covered some bank, but never were in the right place at the right time. We worked hard for just a handful of reds and a pup drum. Capt Lonnie knocked a limit out with his crew, as he was in the right places at the right time. Good two days hanging out with these guys again.
