To all you idiots with light bars on you boat. It is completely unnecessary to ride in someone's rooster cone with it on for 4 miles downriver. You're blinding the other boaters. Turn that s!@# off! If you can't run in the dark with out your light bar you shouldn't be out there before daylight. Advice: If you turn the light bar off for a minute and let you're eyes adjust you can see just fine. Even if there is no moon. This goes for you Mr. 20' white express with the light bar mounted to grab rail on the console.
For you guys new to hunting and surface drives. It is not acceptable or polite to constantly rev your engine while in the marina. Let it idle.... I understand you sometimes need to rev a little when you first crank up, but man, once it's running don't rev it anymore. Stop trying to show off your custom exhaust. No body sleeping in their camp wants to be rudely waken up before its time because some jackass is revving in the marina. If you're excuse is my boat wont run unless I rev it, put that thing in the shop and get it fixed before you come down. Especially the kid with the new custom camo paint job and the big blaze orange letters on the side. Secondly guys the jump is no place to cut people off. Know where you're going before you leave the marina. One of you dummy's is going to get ran over one day and you're going to try to blame the guy who hit you but you're the dummy swerving back and forth, cutting across bows or turning around in the middle of the jump instead of going to either side. Get out the damn way!

Found a healthy trout bite yesterday. We caught over 100 fish and kept 42. All the fish were caught in the morning before the wind picked on double rigged Matrix Shrimp Creole and Shrimp Cocktail. Good water movement was key in our success.
Caught my limit this morning all on soft plastics 18' under a cork. Most was caught in the same spot neer old chenier in Little Lake.
Caught plenty of reds along the walls in the Rigolets using dead shrimp on the bottom casting to the walls. Not fishing the cuts. I even caught a bass doing this. Saturday and Sunday. We even tagged a few out there. Monday was tough but we caught a falling tide in a pipeline canal with an outlet to the marsh and did well under a cork for a limit of reds late in the evening.
