High Winds, High water… Skinny Ponds!!!!

While the speckled trout bite has been phenomenal in Shell Beach, when Holly Wilson showed up with her boyfriend, Clint, and their two friends Janice and Howard, I knew redfish were on the menu. The wind was a steady 20 out of the Southeast and the water was high as giraffes a$$, so we tucked…


Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Mark Dunn decided to get hitched so his good friend Carter O’Brien set up a fishing trip for his bachelor party, including their friends Jacob, David, and Josh.  It was another breezy day in Shell Beach, but luckily these guys are great fisherman and really brought their A game. I made it to our first…


Some Real Breezy Hombres

It was blowing 20 out of the South this morning when Justin Frey and his two friends, Bubba and Bernie, boarded the Skeeter in Shell Beach. The trout thing was looking iffy, but I figured we would give it a shot. We stopped at Campo’s and picked up some beautiful live shrimp from Micheal and…


Smiles, Three Generations Deep

I had three generations of Langford on my boat today. I’m talking about Mr. James, Jim, and Aiden who showed up in Shell Beach this morning for Aiden’s first saltwater fishing trip. We left Campo’s Marina at 5:30 am with a healthy count of live shrimp just looking for something to pull the line. The…


Tough Start, Strong Finish

It was a beautiful morning in Shell Beach this morning. Pat Bonin, of Louisiana Sportsman, joined me with his motley crew of childhood friends from New Iberia which included Mike, Ged, Shanon, and Pat. We loaded up the boat and off we went on another fishing adventure. As I pulled up to Campo’s Marina I…


A great day on the water with Wells Transportation

I got a call yesterday afternoon from a good friend and client, Felton Wells of Wells transportation, wanting to make a fishing trip. Luckily I had the day off so Felton, his wife Inell, and his little brother Jeremiah boarded the skeeter in Shell Beach for 6:00am. We pulled up to Campo’s Marina and Robbie…


From Australia to Shell Beach

Mark Thornton had a great start to his 2 day fishing adventure with me out of Shell Beach, LA. He and his wife travel all the way from Australia to join in the revelry of the New Orleans French Quarter Fest. And once that settles down, he spends a couple days on the bayou goofing…


Bad Ass Birthday Surprise

Jaime Winkelman came all the way from Brooklyn, NY to surprise her boyfriend, Chris, with a Louisiana fishing charter. Chris, who just moved to New Orleans, was super stoked to go on his first Louisiana fishing adventure. I have to say Jaime was a trooper, as her flight was delayed by 8hrs so she came…


Beautiful weather and great fishing!

Preston Perez and Stephen Green wanted to take out some clients for a spring time, cool weather, mixed box fishing adventure. So Gaston, Larry, and Frank met us in Shell Beach to see what we could get into. The first order of business was to put some sheepshead in the box and then we were…


Trophies and Groceries

Another slam dunk out of Shell Beach with Mr. Ken, Ms. Gale, Mike, and Molly. My crew was in town from Nebraska and had never fished in Louisiana. They were looking for both groceries and Trophies. So we picked up our bait at Campo’s and headed for Breton Sound. Ms. Gale and Ms. Molly got…
