Tough Fishing and Tropical Storm Wind Fishing..LOL

Site Sponsor
What a difference a day can make, we worked hard today. Allyson Levitt from Houma and her family in town from London joined me today. We were greeted with calm winds and clean water. We started right where we busted them up yesterday thinking it was going to be on fire!! No luck at all, as the fish had lock jaw. We made a move to another location we caught at yesterday, but with other boats in the area we couldn’t get to the fish. We kept our distance and moved on, not to disrupt the bite of the other boaters. Three more stops with no results, so plan B went into effect!! As our luck would have it we were always in the wrong place at the wrong time!!! It all made sense when I found out we had bananas in the boat...LOL. After the bananas were removed from the boat, we moved on and fished five other locations. We found a extremely slow bite, picking up a few reds and a drum. Not the day I was expecting after yesterday, but all and all it was a very enjoyable day with my crew. The kids did awesome casting and catching a few fish. Thanks again Allyson, I enjoyed y’all company.

Today will go down as the windiest day I’ve ever fished!! Helped out Capt T with a three boat charter. Winds were blowing 26 mph when we left the dock! We picked away a some reds before the the water turned to mud everywhere. We made a few moves and found some puppy drum biting every cast, we were able to put 7 keepers on ice. I’d say we did pretty darn good as we had sustained winds at 37 with Gust well over 40 mph. Good times with these guys in the worst conditions I’ve ever fished in! Thanks Capt T for putting the trip together.
