Yep,Sharks a tremendous predator and can't begin to tell ya how many times both me and de shark spooked each other from extremely CLOSE encounters while pirogue fishing Lady P.She will not only amaze but shock ya with the variety and quality of finfish so CLOSE to home and this is getting to be about prime time with Teal Season round de corner and if we EVER get a break from persistent W winds,Lady P WILL be producing some fine specks to go along with the reds,already out there awaiting skillful lure presentations.Just visited with CCAguns,bringing back a fine Husky chain saw we borrowed from a buddy of mine and he and a buddy planning a Rigolets Estates trip,great knowing folks with private launches,right in this gent's back yard.Love those kinda trips where ya aint gotta wait in line to launch,UNLESS ya wedded to tossing live bait and love me some finesse(Fin-S-nice play on words for ridiculously effective soft plastic that gets imitated NOT innovated by plenty lure slingers)fishing with either soft plastics or fine hard plastics-de Wiz turned me and lotta folks on to Wake Baits,incredibly effective fished right across or alongside thick grass beds!!Got more paint prep to tend to and might get prop to Precision Propellor as I took ride to where Hopkins used to be and looks totally abandoned,sad indeed as they did great work and understand owner passed away but thought I had read where family planned to take over prop business.Good deal on fishing de Rigolets-had a dear friend who loved launching at Sonny Lombard's Marina and we fished plenty of spots in Rigolets area,typically soft plastics ONLY as my deceased buddy did not like either dead/live bait and we typically caught more than enough for a few great meals and he NEVER wanted to keep any fish!!!Ended up buying his 2002 era Chapman pirogue and dat is de one I installed life-time vinyl gunwales on and did custom stencil camo paint job on!!
