CCAguns and I tagged up today on his fine Kenner Vision and we started tossing lures at reds along shorelines in Lake Borgne,he was tossing Tsunamai Gold Spoon,I was tossing Tsunamai glow shrimp(needed to toss dat rusted hook on Tsumanai)under popping cork and it did not take him too long to nab two fine reds and I had monster red smash cork,missed Tsunamai and I missed hook-set on probably a keeper red so I swapped out dat nasty-hook Tsunamai and tied on Pink and Chartreuse Tsunamai and did add to our collection of reds with two and CCAguns nabbed fine 22.5 inch red,think he had Gulp under popping cork!We stuck it out a while then hit two nice wellheads and had just gotten boat tied to rig,think I made all of three casts,thought I had snag but dat snag got angry when I set hook(Shaker 3.75 in Jungle Jazz-might be best croaker imitation soft plastic out there)and I was about spooled when CCAguns did get boat un-hitched from wellhead and heard horrible sound of 17 lb Suffix Advance Fluro getting snapped-sounded like .22 caliber being fired!!!Lucky for me,CCAguns had plenty of line aboard and I re-spooled reel and we hit another well-head,could sense dat heat and lack of tide gonna get de best of us and he did nab fairly big gafftop dat I kept for crab bait and a nasty attitude hardhead dat we tossed back for another fisher to have fun with.Older son grilling dem reds right now,gonna chow on some grilled reds and hope we get back out again soon!Thanks,CCAguns.Always a pleasure fishing with ya!!

Mande, I bet those Reds were some fine supper last night. I’ve been itching to go since I had my trim motor replaced last week, but suffered another setback when I loaded up to go give the Yamaha 4 stroke a test run and I had no power to motor or power pole? Not sure what happened, maybe our mechanic left my Perko switch on? Dropped boat off toTodd over at Dixie Trolling Motors in Mandeville to check her out and install a new JL stereo system in boat so I can enjoy some tunes while out in the water. Hope to join up with you for a trip soon.

GB3 Tried to respond earlier but no go. Anyway,need to introduce ya to de Wiz and CCAguns,both great guys and excellent fishermen. Just watched latest of AJ Fishes You Tubes(Louisiana Produce Man) and he broke off leader with beast pulling him around unlike me who yesterday had beast strip line like no tomorrow(bet we both hooked huge reds)!Know de Wiz fishing,Wifey and I have 2;00 Medicare Client meeting in Hammond and still fighting issues with swimming pool pump motor!Lets definitely plan to get together soon.
