I fished with Grover Badeaux, Chad Becnel, James Smith, and Elinus Noel with TransOcean today. All it took was for the Oilmans to end, and look what happens. No wind and a slick calm Gulf and seas, go figure!! My crew today put the hurt on the fish catching 125 trout in no time. We made two stops, our first stop had the shrimp jumping out the water all around us with the slick calm seas. Everyone in the boat was slinging in fish from all directions on double rigged Avocado Matrix Shad and Geaux Glow TTF Killer Flats Minnows. We put 60 trout on ice when the action slowed down. Made a move to our second stop not far away and it was on again. The trout here were much bigger and were eating up live croakers and the Matrix Shad. We free lined the croakers on the double rigs (one croaker, one plastic some would hit the plastic, some would hit the croaker, and some hit both reeling in doubles). The big trout were hammering the croakers almost pulling the pole out your hand. We had our limit in no time at all and left them biting every cast, just doesn't get any better. Thanks guys for another magnificent trip to add to the books.
The Catchdat Too was slimmed from front to back!!! Huge thanks to Terry with Catchdat.com for letting me use his boat the past few days, and to Capt Joel Wakeland for letting me run trips out of his boat while mine is being built, cant thank you guys enough.
