A Day with My Daughter

With the high winds we’ve had this week, I finally got a day off. Well, kind of…I woke up to a beautiful little blond haired, blue-eyed, 5 year old girl begging me to take her fishing. What’s a dad to do? So my daughter, Ysonde, and I left the house for 7am and made our…


One Check off the Bucket List!

Bobby Simpson was in town from Illinois. He was looking to check some Louisiana redfishing off his bucket list. Boy did we accomplish that!The first area we fished yielded both of our limits. With that one under our belt, we decided to do some scouting. We went to another area in Reggio where I had…


Business First Bank Crew

I had a fantastic windy day fishing with the group from Business First Bank, Michael, Maurer, and Robert. We woke up to a 20 knot Southeast wind and a low tide. Hard-headed as I am, we went out in the MRGO to try to catch a few trout. Conditions were tough with a lot of…


A Great Day for Sleeping in!

Another great day fishing with Wade and Kim Hansen. They weren’t into leaving at 5am, so we left at 7am. We were loaded up with fresh shrimp from Campo’s Marina and headed to Bay Eloi. At the first stop, we put about 20 in the boat but couldn’t really get going. We made a couple…


Another One Stop Shop!

I had great day fishing with Travis Haynes and his good friend, Jeremy Felder. They came down looking to get into this incredible speckled trout bite that we have been having for the past few days. I told them not to be late and they showed up right on time. We left Campo’s Marina at…


One Stop Shop in Breton Sound!

My crew today was Pat Bowen, his son, Danny, and his good friend, Tim Maher. With the storms approaching, we headed out into the sound hoping that the weather cooperate. Lucky for us, it was a one stop shop! We pulled up, dropped the hook, and immediately started putting beautiful trout into the boat! Each…

Let’s do it again!

I had the pleasure of fishing with Tim Carlisle and his friend, Al Russo. The fishing was great as long as we worked for it. We caught fish at every stop until we made the day. We ended the day with 50 trout and 4 redfish. It was Al’s first time fishing in Louisiana and…


Redhot Redfish!

Carter O’Brian and his three friends, Matt, Justin, and Dave, joined me on the boat for some hot redfish action! I had been on a great trout bite for the past few days, but with the high winds, trout were out of the question. I spoke with Captain Mark Munson that morning and he was…


The Winds didn’t Stop the Trout Bite

What a great day fishing yesterday with Jeff Tokarczyk! Jeff’s buddy bailed at the last minute and he decided that he wanted to make the trip anyway! We started off the day fishing in Eloi. The winds were howling out of the northeast 15-20 knots. It’s a good thing the trout didn’t mind! We made…
