Congratulations to Staff SGT "P" John K Mayne on his recent fly fishing catch. While fishing yesterday April 30, 2008 on Calcasieu Lake with Capt John Saucier of Calcasieu Charter Service, SSGT"P" Mayne caught a 6.91# speckled trout. The catch, which should garner 7th place in the LOWA LA Fly Fishing records is being submitted for approval.
Great weekend of fishing on Calcasieu Lake. Good weather, light traffic and hungry speckled trout were biting fast and furious for our customers the last couple of days. Calcasieu Charter Service guides Capt. Jake Longenbaugh and Capt. Steve Strodderd put their groups on good numbers of specks. Despite the mess from Rita, the fish are biting and the weather has been cooperating.
We have our boat stalls at Hebert's Marina back in operation, equipment in order, and guides ready to take your group fishing. The lodge is shaping up as well, but still about two weeks away from being full service again...just in time for duck season. We have been making other arrangements for those needing overnight accommodations while the lodge undergoes repairs.
Excited to return to some normalcy, we will make the switch to camo in a few days...and it looks to be very promising. We are holding a significant number of ducks at this point in our rice fields and the numbers should grow as we continue to get things flooded up for the season in the coming week. Of course, along with the ducks, the specklebelly and snow geese will be loading up even more this week on the next front.
If you want to make a great duck and goose hunt this season, pick a date and give us a call. We have openings and can put you where they live. For more info on our services, check us out on the web at www.calcasieucharters.com or give us a call at 337-598-4700
