Weather was perfect last two days

Fish this time of year like those calm days with no wind and a high sky. Best year ever in Lafitte as fish don't seem to know where the salt water and fresh water meet. Seems like every trip we catch the Lafitte slam should be a great spring.

Catching?
Well it's good to see someone catching in Lafitte. My last 6 trips have totaled about 5 fish in the box

All that giliders is not gold
Not easy because like I posted you had two great days. Today it would have been hard to get a cat fish. Being retired you can fish the good days and stay home on the windy ones. Having a camp sure helps as you can go when the weather man is wrong.

Lafitte
Very True Captain. I will be trying my luck in the morning since the wind should lay down

Let's do the math
Watch out for the low water. Most guide trips are 6 to 8 hours with 3 to 4 people. Say they catch a fish and hour that is 24 to 35 fish for the trip. Most week end fisherman show up late and leave early so that is the difference/

Water was low
Actually Captain the water was the lowest I have seen it this year. Finished the day with two keeper reds, 3 bass, two breakoffs and about 20 throwback reds that all came in right at 14 1/2 inches.

Went to head in and caught me a carolina skiff with a husband and wife and two kids that needed a tow. Glad to help out a fellow fisher family but I'm glad I pay for my sea tow membership.
