Went out yesterday afternoon to catch the falling tide with the hopes of catching a few nice specks. Went to T-Butte first with nothing going even though the water was beautiful. Thought we were a little early because not much tide happening.
Ran to the reefs just out of Southwest Pass and picked a few nice trout but nothing to get very excited about. Decided to go back to T-Butte because the tide was roaring out of the pass and figured they had to be on the reef with the great water and all. Nothing again.
Went back to the pass and fished till near dark. Boat next to us did much better with live shrimp. Came home with enough specks to make it a decent trip but boating this baby just before heading in made it a very nice trip. Just over 4.4#'s, she had me smiling from ear to ear for 10 minutes.
My cousin (CajunRC) brought a bigger one to the boat and we lost it at the net. Looked every bit of 6#'s....
Went out yesterday (6-26) mid-morning with the goal of getting to T-Butte just in time for the falling tide. Tide charts called for a good fall starting at 11AM and lasting until around 3PM. Well, we got there and the water was not moving at all and no fish were biting. We waited it out until about 1PM because we kept thinking the tide would start moving any minute but it didn't. We threw everything at them with no luck.
Start heading back to the pass to beat the rain in and see a few birds just outside of the pass and as we get closer see plenty of bait shrimp getting smashed on top of the water. We were able to pick up around ten 16"-18" specks before we lost them. Made it in to the point just before the nasty weather started. All in all an enjoyable day on the water.
Went to Vermillion Bay yesterday 3/15/05 even though we knew better but hey you gotta go to know right! Well, the weather man was dead on with the winds. Made it to Marsh Island for reds around 7:30 and could only find one of the two key ingredients to catching fish at each stop. The water was moving but so muddy that bait couldn't be seen 2 inches down in most places.
Rough day and even rougher crossing bay on the way in with cross wave action the whole way. First trip this year to the giant mud hole and it was nice to be on the water but it'll be another month or so before I head back out there. This time of year it's better to drive east or west if you live in the Lafayette area in my opinion.
Tried e-mailing you this question last weekend and I'll try it here.
New Garmin 178C that I use a SD chip/memory stick pre loaded with blue chart. Can I download your Edge files to this chip directly from the e-mail using computer without cables, or do I need to get cables and download to GPS unit? There are two Edge locations that I want to get but want to make sure that it is compatible or will work with the SD chip.
