I got a call from Gary Benoit who wanted to break in his new gator tail boat. We stayed close and fished behind the Lakehouse Lodge in the marsh and natural bayous. The north wind was not a problem and the fish cooperated for us. We started off the morning catching trout in a cut with falling water . Every now and then we would catch a red and a bass mixed in with the trout. We caught 28 fish before the bite played out. Made another move and got on the trout again. We hit one more spot which was a point with moving water and picked up 7-8 reds. Called it a day around 10:30 with a full box of fish. Gary’s gatortail ran like a beast and was clocked at 31 mph. Really enjoyed this trip deep in the marsh and never saw another boat all morning. Good luck fishing.
