4 lb. Black drum was delicious. After taking advice of previous posters. I fileted and removed red pieces. Broiled in butter, olive oil, lemon juice, saltnpepper and garlic. It was great. No worms were found. Next time I think I will scale and grill whole. 'Never trust a fisherman who doesn't eat his catch'. Caught with shrimp on Tony Saprito pier in Sarasota Fl, late may.

Need a suggestion for a new tree stand. I have a Summit Viper SS( I think that's the model). I need another that is lighter and easier to pack as I will be hunting public lands. Thinking about Millennium unless someone have a better suggestion?? Also need recommendations for climbing sticks Thanks
Video of catching a big alligator gar while fishing plastics around Bayou Bienvenue last fall. This is a very freak occurrence in my experience. I fought it gently because the hook was a thin wire 2/0 with a 12lb mono leader.
i was in the surf at elmers island and threw out a double rig and hooked up on what ended up being a 40' bullred. i was getting spooled and had less than 10yrds left on my reel and couldnt stop it, so i start moving out to get some line back and then the bull heads towards caminada, but theres a boat anchored and fortunately he pulls his anchor and I'm now swimming to keep my head up. this....
Yesterday I had a guy from Central Arkansas looking to try his hand on some reds and trout in Delacroix Island. There was a stiff wind and stained water but we were still able to put some nice trout and a few reds in the box. If you would like to schedule a trip with Capt. Jimmy Corley you can contact him by phone at (504) 258-4431, by email at email@example.com, also you can go check....
Good times out on the water today. First spot had 110 trout willing to come aboard then nothing. Made one move and picked up the last 15 for our 125 speck limit. Everyone on the boat was getting doubles back to back and couldn't believe how fast the fish were coming in. Double rigged matrix shad pulled every one of the fish on the boat.
For your day catching fish give me a call.
You now cant run a mud boat in Plaquemines Parish unless you are on your private land and/or you have written permission from who you are leasing from. If you have to pass through public land or someone elses property to get there your are doing so illegally.
Slept in today , caught up on all the honey doos.
Called Capts Rob Chauvin and Austin Lacour and they were all fired up to go get them ..
Then left Dularge at 12 noon... caught 75 nice fat trout and were back at the dock for 4:30. Not another boat in sight and the trout were feeding like crazy on the falling tide!!!! No live bait today .Double rigged matrix shad was all we needed. Bounced....
The Speckled Trout bite continued this week out of Boudreauxís Waterfront Motel in Leeville. Monday and Friday morning were a little rough with the 10-15 Southeast wind, and a stalling front, but even mother nature could not stop the big Trout as they are now pigging out. Limits are easily obtained as long as you exercise patience.
I have a Yamaha 60 4 stroke, what is a good brand starting battery, not necessarily the most expensive, but the best performing???? the one I have is a nautilus marine and is the original battery, 7 years old. just went out, pretty good I think. thanks!!
How many trout are you aloud to catch in one day? Does it change if you give your fish away? What happens if you and 3 others fish catch 100 trout and you give yours to the others now do they have too many in their possion?
O.K. there's something I've been thinking about regarding the Federal Snapper Commercial(Charter) vs. Recreational season length. If I'm understanding my recreational boat will get 10 days while the charter boats will get 45 days.....????? So we all know the story when you factor in working during the week and weather I might get 1-2 trips, and that's if me and my crew get's lucky enough....
The company that I usually deal with for the Houma Oilman's Rodeo decided that they were not going to participate this year. So I teamed up with Topwater Charters for Friday and Saturday. Friday we caught speckled trout and bullreds. Saturday we caught speckled trout, redfish, and drum. We used live minnows, live shrimp and crabs for bait.
