12/13/2012 Delacroix Report

As I closed my front door early this morning I kept asking myself if three layers of clothing was enough. It was real real cold this morning but no wind to speak of so I felt confident that 3 pairs of fleece sweatpants, 3 layers of socks, three sweatshits, a face mask, a beanie, 3 layers of socks, steeltoe boots, and some pretty pink gloves that I borrowed from my sister last night was enough to keep me warm. About the pink gloves, I didn't have a pair myself and asked my sister to borrow some the previous night. They worked great but I caught a lot of hell for it aboard the m/v Holy Mackerel today hahah.

Phillip and I left my house around 4:45 a.m. this morning and met up with John Gremillion at sweetwater marina for 6:00. After loading up his boat and hearing how sissy I was for wearing pink gloves, we took off and headed to little lake. No birds were working so we checked out oak river and fount the fish stacked up and hungry despite the 49 degree water temperature.

We fished Matrix Shads under popping corks, carolia rigged with a 1/16 ounce jighead, and also tied straight to 3/8 ounce golden eye jigheads. The trout we were catching were the biggest John has seen this winter and the pictures do no justice to the quality of fish we caught today. Many were 20-22 inches and full of shrimp.

We caught our limit of 75 trout at exactly 9:12 a.m. along with 2 gaspergou's and 2 redfish. Awesome trip aboard the Holy Mackerel. John is the man down in delacroix!

box shot

I know that the pictures do not do those fish justice. JG texted me a box shot of the catch and you could clearly see the relative size of the fish, and there were some serious mules! Too bad he didn't text me a picture of the pink gloves, it'd have been a wall mount. John and John, you guys are the trout Dynamic Duo of Death
