Father and Son, Gettin’ it Done!

The speckled trout didn’t stand a chance with Patrick and his son Kaleb. We left out of Shell Beach, loaded down with some frisky Campo’s Live Shrimp. At our first stop we put a real hurting on the speckled trout population. Once the bite slowed down we had to make a few moves to finish…


Bluegrass Crew in Shell Beach

What a great two days with a great group of anglers!  Curt Phelps took the long ride from Kentucky with his crew to get in on some of the incredible fishing we have had in Shell Beach. Captain Jonathan and Captain Danny ran this one with me, and we all did well. On day one…


The Salty Boys do it Again

Paul Saltaformaggio Jr. arrived in Shell Beach with his father, Paul Sr. , and his Uncle John. These boys made quick work of the speckled trout, polishing off a box by 10:00.

It’s not how you start

Deep, Jacob, Matt, and Billy took a boat ride with me and we ended up catching some fish. The morning was pretty slow for us to say the least. 1 stop, 2 stops, 3 stops,….. and nothing to show for it. My crew kept a great attitude and I’m sure they had more confidence in…

Speckled Trout and Rain showers

Storms in the Skies and Redfish on Ice

With storms all around us, Brian, Cornell, and Jason, were brave enough to climb on board the boat. With fingers crossed and redfish on the mind we headed up the bayou for the first stop of the day, Campo’s Marina. Robbie loaded me up with some lively shrimp and we tucked our tail in the…


Alabama Slam!

I helped out Captain Frank with a group from Huntsville, Alabama. I picked up Laz, Matt, and Jarod from Frank’s camp and headed to Campo’s to fuel up and top off the live well with some lively shrimp. The wind was blowing and the storms were around us, so we decided to play it safe…
