Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
One of several I had to turn back because I already had one 30' fish in the boat!
One of the new Uncle-J Custom Boats rig. 18' x 54' bottom, 24' sides
Another of the big reds I was having to turn back! Check out the mud on his tail. That was mud the n
New Boat - Big Fish!
Just had a custom aluminum center console boat built with a Prodrive surface drive motor and put it through the rigors at Grand Isle after picking it up.
The 24' sides made crossing the bays nice when the weather turned bad. The flat bottom was nice for getting through the duck ponds on falling tides. BIG reds and even BIGGER drum were holed up in the duck ponds working oyster beds. They were pretty tight lipped at times. But, easy to spot against the edges and tailing in the middle of the ponds. When they weren't tight lipped, they were hitting spinner baits. When they were tight lipped, a live cocahoe minnow usually pried their jaws open. Hardest thing about this trip was getting fish in the boat under 27'! The second hardest thing was keeping the fish from breaking me off on the oyster beds!
