Too nice of day to work or stay home.Ran down to Bienvenue and dropped a line.Nothing too insane but steady quality fish were coming over the side at all our stops.Can't ever remember seeing so many shrimp poppin this time of year.We clocked 50 speckles,7 reds,1 bass and one white bass by 1:30.Tiger bait matrix and hardbaits got it done.All the usual winter haunts have life,great wall and....
Me and old Pal Stafford fished Bayou B today and had a awesome day caught fish at every stop we made.The trout are all over right now and became a nuisance while trying to get reds.All we threw was matrix tiger bait on a 3/8 head.Ended with 50 beautiful trout, 2 drumses,1 red and a bass.
Fishing keeps getting better all the time from the east to the west and all points in between seeing fish all over the Pontchatrain basin,very few areas are unproductive right now,and will only get better.All I have been fishing is the matrix in really any color but been using tiger bait color mostly.Made a quick afternoon trip yesterday here's a pic
Fished the ICW the past two days,yesterday caught 47 trout 30 reds (no we didn't keep 30)fished again this morning with a three hour window landed 22 trout 10 reds 1 bass 1 flounder released another 20 or so reds,fish caught on matrix shad midnight mullet on a 3/8
Made an early morning run to Bayou Bienvenue yesterday and the moral to the story is sleep in a little,as the bite got really strong around 11 am.We got in a great redfish bite along the rocks in the channel caught our 15 in no time and played catch and release for awhile and anyone who says redfish are trash obviously hasn't looked into the eyes if a young lad tied up to one of these brutes.The....
Fished from 9:00 till 3 today and from the first drop till I left the sacs were on.Caught and released around 70 sac a lait alot of Dinks but alot of slabs too.I used the baby shad in salt and pepper back for more tomorrow
Had a blast fishing this morning in the lake.The fishing was slow to start but once it did we had a consistent bite.Started out with topwater had some gorgeous trout crushing our plugs.That faded out a bit so started chunking the catch 2000 and it was game on again.When that died out started bumping the Matrix shad on the bottom and got our other 22 fish to fill our limit.I was extremely happy....
Made a solo trip this morning,got on some good ones with a nice kicker mule trout.Was a great morning called it a day early,well for me anyway.Mirrorlures and tightline plastic worked about the same but better quality on hard lures.
The fishing is incredible right now as it seems every time I get to go limits are the norm except the fish are getting bigger.Lost two fish today that were well over 5lbs and Im being conservative,they were absolute MONSTAS!I will be thinking about what I should have done different for a long time.But we had a great day on the water catching our limit and playing catch and release for a while....
Went out Saturday morning to the rigolets,found the fish in a frenzy.Had a first for me after 19 years of fishing the rigolets.I caught a fish on a popping cork,actually had a double, one on the cork one on the jig,went to swing em in and the one on the cork stayed on but the one on the hook came off,go figure,I cant make this stuff up.So Im gonna go out on a limb and say the color lure we were....
Hit the lake Friday,found an area with alot of shrimp popping the surface and came up with 45 trout 1 rat red and a flounder.Nearly all the fish were caught on the copperhead deadly dudley tightlined.Its been a while since I have seen color make that much difference but it absolutely did.The tide quit and so did the fish keeping us 5 from our limit but it was still more than I wanted to....
After reading the posts about flounder catchin and cooking decided to give my a hole a try and I wasnt dissapointed,nailed a 8lbr and several other good ones and even some trout and reds fished gulp curlytails
Got or limits easily in the afternoon,the only thing we used were gulps under a cork, the fish were liking it and I wasnt in the mood to argue with em,not 5 minutes from the marina some white trout mixed in but most were pretty nice for bird fish
I dont think I have ever caught as many fish as I did yesterday.I fished two points with a cut and landed over a hundred Bass.The fish were in a frenzy,packs of 1-3 lbrs chasing bait.I went through a bunch of worms cause when I was reeling one in there would be as many as 4 other bass following the hooked fish and snatching the worm off the line,truly incredible and a day I wont soon forget
Got out around 2:30 this afternoon when the tide would be falling and as luck would have it actually was,the fish were in a pretty good frenzy hitting a variety of artificials,I lost some really nice specks on a little swimbait I was throwing but it was a great evening we landed 38 specks 2 reds and a lone flounder
Been putting the hurt on some Bass ,have caught and released well over a hundred the last couple days,my thumb is getting raw.Been using the frog or worm on lower tides,as the water comes up been throwing spooks over the top of the grass and really mauling the fish
Made a trip in my bass hunter in some old gravel pit and caught a good mess of sac a lait but they slowed up some so I tried a spot where I,ve caught a big bass or two in the past and the 3rd cast using a cheapo crankbait(the only bass lure I had in the boat)this pig nailed it,WHAT A RUSH!I released her to be caught again,those big girls are too valuable to be caught once.The fish was 24"s....
Fished a couple hours this morning at Manchac pass and landed a few blues and broke off several in the pilings.The big blues were absolutely crushing the crabs as they swam through the pass.I never realized how agressive these fish really are.I used cut skipjack for bait.
Fished the hole again today around some snags and muscled up some big trout and reds ,its funny the reds wont snag you up but the trout will,frustrating, but worth it to me,havent seen another boat all week
