Nada Today 8 18 21

Had reasonably high hopes for the trip that me,grandson and his maternal Great GrandPaw had planned for today and we hit Rigolets Marina fairly early after meeting GreatGrandPaw at Mandeville Winn Dixie.Launched his fine Nautic Star and hit a few grassy shorelines with him tossing spinnerbait,me chunking Johnson Silver Minnow in Chartreuse Flash(ordered a few more from Bass Pro after searching a few likely spots for gold spoons and silver spoons).Great Grand Paw nabbed marsh bass and we quickly released him and I got big ole goose egg for my efforts.We did find some fine and clear water quite a bit East of where we initially started and was hoping we would spot some teal and only ducks we spotted were the ever-present black-bellied whistling ducks!!Grandson had a blast(he taking much-needed nap,I may not be too far behind)!!Hope to get the trio together soon and once cooler weather arrives,spots we hit should harbor some fat specks and reds.We did chat with LAWLF biologist(same one I met about two months ago)and he said he has seen about the same misery as we had with other anglers.maybe one boat recently had a few specks and reds.Not sure what to think as we hit areas that shoulda had some fish!!!
