All caught in an hour and a half on Matrixshad shrimpcreole in a foot of water. Threw at 10+ more that ignored every pass. Had to stop retrieve and bounce it in front of them.

Anyone have feedback on castaway croker smoker fishing rods?

Me and the little woman caught our limit of reds today. Shrimp Creole matrix shads did most of the damage. Caught all the undersize specks we could handle fishing the birds near Grand Isle.

Not a bad day. Mostly stay on the edges of bays and lakes all day with 8 reds 2 flounder 7 fresh cats 1 speck and a drum to show for it. Extremely low water. Find clean water and yoi find the fish.

Does anyone have and experience with the Kodiak canvas tents? Almost all of the revoews are good ones but I've noticed none are from people around here. I was wondering how they would preform down south.

Did pretty good Sunday 7/5. 5 reds 1 bass 1 sheephead in about 2 hrs. Lots of 15and 3/4 inch throwbacks.

Got a few in lafitte saturday morning. Missed about a half dozen and had a few a little too big for my liking. Shrimp creole vortex was the ticket.

Got off work early and made a redfish trip to 3bayou. Caught a limit in about 45 mins and left them biting

Fast trip this morning. Went out to little lake and limited out on reds in an hour in one spot. Dead shrimp under a cork along the rocks near cloverly.Had to weed thru about 30 undersized reds. A good problem to have.

Late start today. Flying solo around 9:30am made one stop and started hitting keeper trout on Cajun crickets and switched to pearl gulp shrimp 20 trout 2 reds 2 drum 2 hours.

Went to Lafitte Sunday morning for a fast redfish trip. Me and my girl took home 4 reds, 1 flounder, 1 sheephead and about a 17inch speck. Burned about $10 worth of gas.Not bad for playing around for a few hours.

August 13, 2012 at 10:54pm

One of our Lafitte reds.

I'm thinking about buying a Guest onboard charger from academy and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with them. It is the model that charges from the wall and the boat motor when it is running. Thanks

Im mot sure what the water looks like where your fishing but I don't usually use a spinner. I will cast pass reds that I'm sight fishing and pull across their path if possible. Sometimes when I get in front of them if they are not hitting it I'll bounce it a little in front of them. Try constant speed, slowing down in front of them and hopping on the bottom. I hope this helps.

I like to use about an 18 inch mono leader with a quarter oz jighead. The Vortex shad in shrimp creole work for me in clean to kinda clean water in Lafitte. The Vortex shades (Matrix shad)have good wiggle and don't tear up easy. The mistake I see most people do is throwing right at the fish or directly over them. You really need to get the hang of throwing past them and work the bait within their eye sight. I hope this helps.

Solid trout man, congrats

I believe most sportsman in Louisiana have a healthy respect for our fish and wildlife.With that being said most of us would have zero respect or tolerance for this level of stupidity. I would love to see some of these clowns show up along hwy 1 on the way to Grand isle. Crab traps always need bait.

July 17, 2017 at 9:40pm

Gotta give you props, you consistently catch monster trout. congratulations.

July 17, 2017 at 8:53pm

Thanks for the post Capt. Good reminder for those of us that have been lacked lately. Will be praying for a speedy recovery.

I also use Okuma with castaway rods and never have any problems. I strip them down and clean them once a year.
