Reply
Did not have baby-sitter for grandson(what better baby-sitter than Paw Paw taking fishing trip with grandson???)and had decent window of opportunity plus decent wind and tidal conditions,so we hit Lake P with beloved chocolate lab,Molly,in tow and started chunking Johnson Silver Minnow,Chartreuse and pounded what had been very productive shorelines but NOT today,so we hit nice protected cove,switched over to Berkley Gulp,Swimming Mullet,of course,Chartreuse and nabbed fine lil red dat grandson admired before we released him to grow up and present another angler a chance at admiring his four spots/side!!Hit Causeway and had bunch of lady-fish,some brute-sized and finally nabbed keeper red and decided to head to spot about 4 miles N and got rewarded with fine and fat blue catfish,field-guestimated weight at 4 lbs,once home put fine catfish on digital scale and weighed shade over 4 lbs!!!Probably need to start heading tad E,possibly Lake Borgne,but I typically try to hit certain areas of Lady P this time of year to also scout for teal rockets!!Did not see any waterfowl other than huge flock of black-bellied tree ducks!!!Jr was worn out,almost falling asleep in boat on way back!!Might see what next week holds and scope out areas tad E of where I have been typically fishing!!

CCAguns,Thanks and been in contact with the Wiz told him we gonna take road trip to Jackson(younger son has Law School apartment living on second floor of concrete building)and feel safer than vs here in Mandeville,surrounded by huge pines. Hope we dodge yet another bullet. Chocolate lab loves road trips and gonna love getting back together with Perry,younger son’s pug.

Careful! Ida headed there. Probably safer to stay home in Mandeville!

Well we like our chances on second floor and know we taking somewhat of a chance though wind speeds there by the time Ida goes over should be less than when she hits the coast. We headed to Holden for Katrina and that was our best bet. Gonna hunker down in younger son’s apartment doubt winds gonna do much to their fortress of a building.

Looks like not only did we dodge huge bullet on NShore but also luckily dodged one up in Jackson,MS!Got word from older son and sister in law and brother in law dat both homes escaped trees hitting em and God musta been protecting our home as ten inch tree managed to drop between home and small shed but did take out power line. Staying one more day in Jackson on second floor of very sturdy building still have power and slight winds kinda like we suspected and hope all fared out ok.
