Maybe not quite a 'bounty' but to me and my son a good haul none the less! We threw live shrimp at the rocks just outside the mouth of Bayou Bienvenue. Picture perfect day and even caught a tagged redfish. Ended up with 2 5lb sheepshead and 3 redfish 16-17'. Threw back 2 nice bass and missed 3 nice reds due to equipment malfunctions.
The Team Here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters are catching nice stringers of fish on the Islands and a few big ones to go with it. Scott Rawls and his crew caught a nice stringer of trout wade fishing the Chandeleurs and catching on topwater baits. we also used a few new Bodonk A donk sinking lures and caught very well.
Took my 10 yrs old son and friend to GI sun and mon. Fished the rocks in front of state park, 27 specs, live shrimp. Mon an went to Elmers, crabbed before the weather got us. Grand Isle still a favorite.
Had our friends(Bassies and Dentons) from Greenwood, MS at the camp this weekend. Put a steady mess of reds and drum in the boat on Saturday to provide us with a nice fish supper. Also caught plenty of crabs. Then on Sunday afternoon August 2nd, they put on a clinic. Redfish limits filling up the coolers. Trevor got a chance to fight a huge Bullred. Got plenty of Half Shells to take home....
I don't post many of my pics on this site but thought this was worth the shot because i have not had a day like this since i moved to Houston. Fished Sabine in my Kayak over an oyster reef and the fish were everywhere gorging on pogies. I fished nearly every color and style topwater but the c-eye pink she dog was the only one they wanted. All of these fish but 2 were caught on she dogs and....
Its been awhile since I've posted but I had to share this. Monday I made a trip out of rigolets marina and headed into lake borgne. At first light mullet were being crushed and so was my topwater. I was throwing topwater while the rest used live shrimp and It was every cast for about an hour. At the end of the morning we had 87 beautiful trout and 1 red. I made my first go pro video if yall....
Some people go to movies, others play video games, but really if you want entertainment just go fishing on a Saturday. I could've sat on anchor with some popcorn today and got to see what the world is made of. Good people and ignorant people. Fortunately Justin Freeman, his wife, her friend Melanie and her son didn't have anyone rain on their parade. All the damage was away from us and to....
With this nice weather we have been having along with some low tide ranges at night we have been on some really good shoots. Redfish and giant sheepshead has been our main targets. The sheepshead have been on the oysters beds while the redfish are on the clean muddy bottoms. This last trip we done we seen well over 100 redfish but with only 3 of us on the boat it turned into a Marathon on the....
Went out on Saturday 8/1. Started at Bayou Lacombe with a high tide and strong north winds. Turkey necks in the nets yielded no results. Moved over to Madisonville at the mouth of the Tchefuncte River, three crabs was all we got. Our only consolation was that no one else was catching any.
Mother in law went crabbing yesterday on Elmer's Isle from 9-4 and caught 6 crabs all day.
I went this morning from 6-noon and got 9 doz mixed. Almost all were caught between day break and 8am.
A lot of people fishing on the surf, kayak and from their boat and did not see one person land a keeper all day.
Just a FYI...

I FINALLY got a 35 whelen barrel for my pro hunter. It's the 28 inch stainless fluted model. I'm wondering if anyone has this same model and ammo they find is the most accurate? I'm leaning toward the 180 gr fusions, as I've had good luck with them in my 270.
