Another Long Haul

Made another long haul in the Alweld Friday not expecting all that wind. I stopped at Goo’s for live bait and everyone in line was getting live shrimp so I changed it up and got my usual 40 cocahoes and a pound nice bait shrimp as backup. Went to the west to try to get to pipeline rocks or helipad and got beat up so I fished backside of the islands and picked up a few small trout. Water was dirty and shrimp boats stirring it up. Bounced my was back in fishing a few points and cuts on way back in with only a few huge seacats. Found a few birds diving and again big cats. I worked my way back into the Texaco canals and found cleaner moving water and trout were on the bottom. The counter ended with 77 caught but only put 12 in the box due to size. Rain shower moving in so called it a day around 2 to head home.

Cleaned da fish and peeled dem bait swimps. Baked dem trout and eggs with Swimp etouffe sauce on top a bed of rice. Good way to end a vacation.
