Decent Trip to Biloxi Marsh

Reply
Got a late start but headed to Biloxi Marsh mid-morning yesterday. Saw plenty of boats running around, with most fisherman indicating clean water not to be found. Took a bayou further into the middle of the marsh and found some decent water in a 2.5 foot pond. Buddy caught a few small trout and all I got was a stingray, but the trout had us believing the water was sufficiently clean and saline. Fished a few other places with only gafftops to be caught over old Le Petit Island. Headed back to pond for evening bite as moon was rising. Caught a dozen or so specs (only 6 keepers), 4 sheepshead and a dozen or so reds, including a 31 inch bull that yours truly happened to hook. Kept 3 rat reds, 2 sheepshead and six trout for a few good suppers. On the way back to Rigolets Island, Lake Borgne was calm. 40 minutes from mouth of bayou to Rigolets Island!

Sounds great, Wiz. 7 or 8 nice trout is all I ever keep as the wife and I will eat two good baked or broiled trout meals and we're done with trout for a week. I never freeze them as they don't taste quite as good. Can't keep them in the fridge more than three days either. That'd be a good trip for me!!!!

Yep,CCAguns and Wiz,totally agree that 5-7 specks or a few nice 18-22 inch reds perfect for dinner(s)and we likewise HATE to freeze fish,would rather give em away(cleaned,by the way)then to have to freeze em and bet there are some nice door-mats to be had as well.Wifey and I celebrating 35th wedding anniversary this Monday and getting ready to scope out predicted winds and tidal range and she and I just might hit some NShore shorelines,possibly sight-casting for reds.Got bunch of custom Jann's Netcraft spinner baits that I recently made and not sure bout you guys but NOTHING beats making a lure and having fish nail it!!

Congrats, Mandevillian! What a wonderful woman to put up with you all these years!!!!
Better check the weather. Looks like a front moving through Tuesday afternoon, turning winds to the North by Wednesday. Wishing you and the wife all our best on your anniversary!!!

CCAguns,Yep ya right and just before we got married I used to joke with her about the neat T-shirts I used to see at Bass Pro dat stated “We interrupt this marriage for the Hunting/Fishing Season”!Guess it helped dat Wifey’s dad loved to hunt and she grew up in family that hunted,fished,trapped for whatever and we used to be able to legally hunt right where her family land is but dem days long gone😬Texted Dave Raggio showing him nice grass line red I caught Friday and he got back to me with nice video shot of box of hammers he and AJ Lacava(AJfishes)caught yesterday and they stayed down there NO DOUBT they replicated those results today😎Thanks and we plan to fish and set out half dozen crab nets tomorrow.
