Richard Fitzpatrick made the short drive from MS. He brought his grandson Collin, and his son-in-law Elton. We fished the marsh with spinners and had a blast. Young collin (12) can handle a rodnreel and was fun to fish with. We all had a great time in the marsh. Richard is already looking forward to another trip.

Ed Lundin of Lundin Roofing in BR came in to catch REDFISH in the marsh. I told him that the bite was better in the evening on Wednesday. We could fish Lake Pontchartrain early then head to the marsh. His fishing friends Bob & Lionel were ready for an ANGLING ADVENTURE. We left my dock early, headed over to the bridges and started to fish. The fishing was slow we caught a few and missed a few. We decided to head over to the Biloxi Marsh and find some REDFISH. On Ed's second cast in the marsh a REDFISH hit his line and the fight was on. But things slowed down from their. I made a move to change our luck and Lionel put a nice 24' REDFISH on ice after a good fight. He then put another in on the next cast. It would be hit and miss for a while. We made another move and Bob missed one right away. In this bayou we put about 6 more REDFISH in the box. Bob caught a Fat REDFISH and Ed said 'that's a good way to finish' But Bob wanted to make one more cast well Bob put another REDFISH in the box. They were ready to go, so we headed back in 3 Redfish short of our limit.
