Funny thing, lots of people I fish with talk a big game when I first meet them and we're shooting the breeze. But when the fish start biting, we find out pretty quickly who has developed real skills.

Timing the flounder run is tough. Make a plan B to catch bull reds if the flounder ain't biting when you get there. In a boat? Cracked crab on the bottom at the jetties. Kayak? Hit the beaches. Lots of good places. Flounder are awesome, but bull reds are reliable.

Good times.

Both extremes are possible. If your wife is a 'fishing widow' you might be fishing too much. If you're only fishing a few times a year, you might not be fishing enough.

If I was willing to spend lots more money, I would have done that in the first place. Some of us are on limited budgets. It did not occur to me that they'd make a GPS without maps.

Thoughts? Can tithing on fish increase your catch?

One point that is mentioned in the video but underappreciated is the importance of practicing with the same rod, reel, lure weight, and leader length as one will be using for real.

Lots of guys in the younger generation don't use chains. Shoot, in the age of spot lock and power poles, many don't even have anchors. To me, the anchor is an essential safety device on a boat. If the boat loses power, I'd like to decide if I stay in one spot or let the wind and current carry me along.

I know in Louisiana, lots of poboys are fried. And one can always prepare the fish with your favorite fried fish recipe. But I prefer the fish grilled, so my wife makes them that way.

Sure, Jesus performed lots of fish-related miracles in the Bible.

Not sure how opening the Bonnet Carre spillway is going to tank the fishing in Grand Isle since it dumps Mississippi River water into Lake Pontchartrain making it fresh and muddy and eventually freshening and muddying water East of the Mississippi, many miles from Grand Isle. Grand Isle fishing in December was very good during our trip there, but we target mostly bull redfish and drum. I expect cracked crab on the bottom to produce well all winter. Things were more hit and miss for the guys chasing speckled trout. The fish are always around GI somewhere, but there are times when finding the trout requires more experience and skill.

Same technique works on similarly sized croaker and whiting, also great bait for shark and redfish.

I prefer cracked crab in most cases. But the claws are useful when you run out of crabs or if the catfish are tearing up your cracked halves before the bull reds and drum can get to them. A crab claw will almost always last until a big fish gets to it.
