Went too Reggio bayou this morning, water was low and seemed to be still , ran out too the lake a started working my way back , had plenty of big shrimp jumping in front of my trolling motor , started with a sexy shad wake bait caught 1 red lost 3 on side of boat, have net but don’t wanna get hooks hung up in it , I switched over to a chrome black back rattle trap running it right out side of grass line caught 1 bass on first cast let it go wanted reds , after releasing bass almost every cast was a hook up , reds were stacked up chasing shrimp , caught 10 reds all running 17-18 inches kept 4 more and released rest as I was going slow along shoreline, losing a few more on side of boat , but what the hek was fun playing with dem , called it quits around 9:30 before getting hot , was definitely a great morning to be out on the water , bringing them up to my cousin who has ALS , in New Roads gonna bring my ultra lite rods with hand made jigs for some of dem copper nose bluegills he has in his ponds 🧙‍♂️🎣

Wiz,Nice haul,tried to respond using I-phone but wasted my time so here goes--was supposed to chase some Lady P reds and potentially some dem lunker specks like de one I sent ya dat Chris Hoelzel nabbed probably not very far from where I typically pirogue fish-had change of plans as Buddy needs to clean up his yard after his son-in-law and a nice neighbor cut down dead oak tree(he and I were gonna tend to dat tree tomorrow).Taking my newest Chapman on nice solo trip tomorrow and hope to nab a few nice fish,starting with Top Dogs at first,then might switch over to hard plastics,spinnerbaits,various colors of Johnson spoons!!CCAguns,Buddy,and I plan to hit some Hopedale hot-spots next Tues-CCAguns checked tidal forecast and looks very promising,weather-permitting!!!
