Tough conditions yesterday morning fishing with Ray Huntz of March and Bayou Magazine and Captain Wild Bill Wichrowski of the Cape Caution on the TV series Deadliest Catch. There were a bunch of small storms in the area and a 14 knot SW wind. We fished in Bay Eloi and tucked into a lee and got the fish going. They started off decent, but got smaller. We picked our way to #50 with a handful of white trout. With all the small fish we had to work through, it really helps getting that Campo’s count. Captain Bill and Ray had a blast and they were tons of fun to fish with! We exchanged fishing stories and I enjoyed Captain Bill’s stories from Alaska to Costa Rica. When he comes to town, I sure hope he calls me again for another fishing adventure! The final count was 50 specks, 8 white trout, and Captain Bill’s Largest redfish ever caught (44 inches and an estimated 30+ lbs) and Ray caught and released another 36 inch red! Special thanks to the Campo family and Darrell Eckert for setting the whole thing up!
Jakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LA
All fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!
Give me a call and get in on the action!!!
