Inshore Fishing in Shell Beach / Hopedale / Reggio in Southeast Louisiana
Brian's big red.
They taste better if you work harder for um.
Got to admire the man's engineering skills.
Had to work for um yesterday!
Had return clients down. Mike, Justin, and Brian have been one some of the better trips I have ever had. So I figure they are good luck charms. And boy did we need it! Wind was up 15-20mph out of the west so I knew the Sound was most likely out. We decided to go far to the east side of the channel and arrived to find water VERY muddy, fished 5 minutes had to make a big move to semi protected water. Fish our way back across Eloi picking up a few at each stop working up towards 20 fish. Made a couple stops back in the MRGO channel and ended up with a good bite for another 40 and 2 reds. 60 trout and 2 reds, not a banner day, but if I did not have my good luck charms with me I am thinking it could have been worse. Back at the dock before the big rains and guys were really happy with the nice 9th inning finish. Was a bit handicapped all day, have a wound on my foot from power washer and gulf water made it take a turn for the worse. Ended up in Oshner with IV antibiotics by the end of the evening... good times. Gunna keep my foot tho looks like, heh otherwise I'll get a peg and a parrot.
