Looking to get a baitcasting reel. Haven't used one in a while and from the internet searches the field has expanded since I last used one. So looking for advice on the best baitcasting reel out there. Willing to spend up to $250
More Pics from the 1-08-11 Trip
Here are some pics from the Fishing trip on 1-08-11. If you haven't been to Sweet Water Marina, you NEED TO GO! Get those kids on the water and have some fun!
If you haven't launched at Sweet Water Marina and met Capt Jack and his Crew you are missing out!. Had the boat full today, (Wife, Son and Nephew ). We put 20 red fish on ice in 30 minutes. We let the kids do some catch and release for a while before we headed it. Martha, Cody, and Taylor did an awsome job managing those hard pulling reds. Huge thanks to Capt Jack, he put us right on top of the fish this evening!
Fished Dularge on Thursday and Friday looking for Trout, Skunked both days. Been fishing down there every day this week. The Trout bite was not there at all. Fishing 2 more days, not sure where, then back to work.
Cody, Bruce, Poncho, and Charles were at it again. We got the itch and headed down south for a little Red fishing. Me and Cody did our home work the day before so we all but had a good day of fishing packaged up. We managed 4 limits of Red fish and 8 Trout. Great day on the water!
Took Cody out for a Cold day of fishing. We managed our limit of Reds. Fun day on the water fishing with the 'Little Man'!
Late post from Lake Pontchatrain. I fished on my birthday and managed limits of Bass and Trout. 1st time I have ever managed both on the same trip. Perfect Trip, one that will be hard to top!
Ton's of red fish action down in Myrtle Groove yesterday. Myself, my 2 brother in-laws( Poncho & Bruce ), and my son ( Cody ) fished until noon, we had at least 125 red fish hit the boat. We kept our 20 fish limit and enjoyed some good rod bending action
Fished Point La Hatch on Tuesday, 1 Red. Fished from Black Bay back to Point La Hatch today, nothing. Not Looking good at all!. Only great news I have is that I launched at Sweet Water marina in Delacroix for the 1st time on Tuesday, I have to say, those are the most courteous, professional people I have met. I was fishing alone the last 2 days. Frank helped me launch the boat, he parked the truck, outstanding service all around. I will definitely be back! Just hope the fish are biting, only on vacation for 4 more days:(
Took a good friend of mine down south for a little fishing. Had to hunt a bit, but ended up up limits of Specs and Reds. Perfect day!
I had to do some editing of the photos. Bayou Lacomb bass. Cody twice this year, has put 4+ lb fish in the boat. Little man is hooked!
My son wanted to go catch a few before the Saints game. Hit Bayou Lacomb, we had to work for them, but managed to put together a nice stringer. My son old landed 2 nice ones, 3 1/2 and 4 1/2.
Pics from the trip
Good day of fishing with my 6 yr old son Cody. He caught his 1st bass today, then he caught his 2nd thru 5th. Made his old man proud. Wound up with the biggest fish of the day right at 4 1/2 lbs.
