Tuesday June 16th
Today I had the pleasure of fishing with and old friend and client Ray Champagne and his son Mason who is 11 years old. Ray asked if I knew a place that we could go and catch some Redfish, so that Mason could experience the fight and pull on the line of a Redfish. We left the dock from Lafitte Harbor Marina at 6:30am and headed out for a place I have been catching Redfish in the Little Lake area just about everyday. We pulled up and threw the cajun anchor pole down, and baited our lines with market shrimp on a jighead with a cork. This is an easy way to catch Redfish when you have kids. At first all we caught were undersize reds, and after about 4 or 5 cast the frenzy was on. We caught a Redfish almost every cast for about an hour,all total we caught 15 for the box, and caught and released another 15 to 20 Redfish. Ray and I really enjoyed watching his son reel in a Redfish one after another. Mason told us he had to take a break and sit and have a drink, because he was too tired to reel in another fish. I hope todays trip catching Redfish made a angler out of Mason, and he will want to come back and catch Redfish again soon, and I look forward to fishing with him and his dad in the future.
I want to thank Ray and Mason for letting me be part of their father and son day. This is a day I will not forget, and I hope Mason will remember this Redfishing trip for a LIFETIME! As always this is New Orleans Fishing at its Best!
