Sunday June 21st Fathers Day!
I fished with a friend and client Billy Simms and his two sons Paul and Ben, from Madison MS. They have booked with me in the past, but have had bad luck with the weather and we have had to cancel on the day of the trip on a few occasions. But this trip was not the case this time.
When I showed up to the dock Sunday morning, Billy and I both were happy to see that there was no rain and thunderstorms in the forcast. We left Lafitte Harbor Marina at 6:15am with the wind blowing northwest at about 15mph. Billy had asked me about catching Redfish and mabye some Speckled Trout after we had a limit of reds, if we had time. So we headed out for the Little Lake/ Turtle Bay area, in search of reds. Our first stop we caught a few nice reds, but did not do as good as the days before. So I decided to go try a few other areas. we picked up a few reds everytime we stopped the boat at a different spot. But we finally hit the honey hole, we boated our limit of 4 BIG Redfish over 27″ inches, and released a few more 27″ to 29″ inch reds that we could not keep, with Paul cathcing one red 30″ long we released to fight again. At one time we each had a redish on the line at the same time, only being able to keep one for the box. After we caught our daily limit of 20 Redfish, 3 Black Drum,and a Flounder that Ben caught on a gold spoon. we then headed out to Barataria Bay to look for a few Trout. When we arrived in the bay, we found many groups of bird working near Grand Terre Island, just east of Grand Isle. We caught 18 nice keeper trout and threw back 20 or so undersize trout in about an hour, before heading back to the dock in time for the guys to get cleaned up and checkout for the 2:00pm checkout at the Lafitte Harbor Cabins. I had a great day fishing with Billy and his sons Paul and Ben, and look forward to doing it again in the future. Thanks guys, and as always this was New Orleans Fishing At its Best!
