Captain Etch-A-Sketch…This one is for you Captain Kerry Audibert

This is a trip that I was never supposed to run. After the loss of Captain Kerry Audibert, we are all trying to put the pieces back together. Jesse is one of Kerry’s best clients and with his recent passing, he was sorely missed on this trip. This is dedicated in loving memory to Captain Kerry Audibert, the best trout fisherman I have ever known.

Jesse, Ashley, Eric, and Dustin arrived in Shell Beach for 6:00 this morning to get in on some of the speckled trout action Due to the work being done on the Yscloskey Bridge, we had to leave an hour later.  The morning started off slow. Well, we were catching a ton of fish, but not many keepers. I decided to bounce around and look for some better fish. And bounce around we did. After about half a dozen stops and catching one sheepshead and one speckled trout I was ready to change zip codes and try a different area. Before I bailed, I gave my first stop of the day one more shot and the speckled trout went nuts. Everyone was slinging speckled trout into the boat. When we hit our number we took it to the barn. Here’s the lesson that I have to relearn every year.

Don’t leave fish to go look for fish!!!!


Jakamo South is a Louisiana charter fishing guide service operating out of Shell Beach, just 25 miles south of the New Orleans French Quarter. We specialize in inshore species, such as speckled trout, redfish, flounder, and drum.

All fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp with 13 Fishing Black Omen Rods and Fins Braid fishing line.
