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…


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…


Florida/Alabama Boys in South Louisiana

I helped Captain Jonathan out with a great group of guys from the coast of Florida/Alabama. It was a one stop shop today with both boats doing well with the speckled trout. The bite was pretty steady, but never did go nuts. Special thanks to Captain Jonathan for setting up the trip and to the…

Chicken Salad Out of Chicken $H1T!

It was a windy day on the water with Jeff Coralis of Nulite Electric and his customers from Marvin’s Electrical Contractors, Marvin, Tim, Bud, and Dave. After loading the wells with some frisky Campo’s live shrimp, I picked up the guys at Jeff’s camp in Proctor’s Landing for 5:00am. It was a tough morning, but…


One Stop Shop

Loren Leblanc of Westend Roofing showed up in Shell Beach with Rene, David, and Jerry. My crew loaded up the boat with beer, sandwiches and their A-game on this trip. We stocked the bait-well with frisky Campo’s live shrimp and headed south towards Breton Sound. On the way out, I saw some birds working over…


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…


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…
