Found a few nice Trout last week. Elmer’s Island Canal with plastics on 1/4oz jig heads did the trick. Reds and Flounders are around as well. It’s sooo close to being on.
The work on the beach is almost complete. Here are a few pictures behind BridgeSide to show what a great job has been done. Yes, that is the beach behind BridgeSide, and no, it’s not trick photography.

Spent the past week scouting GI for Reds and Trout and found spotty action throughout the Isle. Tried Elmer’s Island for Trout and Reds and found very aggressive Sharks in the surf mainly on the East side. Waded out on the West side and found nice Reds in the cut. Water is still a little cold.
Elmer’s Canal has a few trout and loaded with rat Reds.
Went to see the beach restoration behind.... Read More
While fishing Grand Isle this week, I had the chance to fish the new Abu Garcia SORON STX20. This is definitely the next generation spinning reel. The 11 HPCR bearings are incredibly smooth and a 5.1:1 gear ratio makes this the perfect reel for fishing plastics and topwaters. The Soron STX has dual bearings on the stainless steel main shaft supporting the spool eliminating wobble and delivering.... Read More
Yesterday had the chance to Blast N Cast with Barry D. of the Paw-Paw's Pirogue Family. Day started early down in Delacroix and I really missed “Pepper The Wonder Dog”. The retriever I had complained a lot and would talk back when sent after a duck. You’ve never herd so much whining about having to go get falling ducks. Several times I had to go get my own downed ducks in the “Cajun Cadillac”.... Read More
Fished Delacroix Saturday with Mark, A.K.A. JavaJoe. Had tried to hook up with him a couple of times last month, but he was too busy wearing out the trout and reds in Grand Isle. Enjoyed a nice sunrise and started fishing near some of our duck leases near Lake John. Managed to put just a couple of keepers on ice, with a few throw backs. Moved to a pond nearby where there are usually plenty of.... Read More
No flounder this evening, but some really nice trout taken on Poppa Dog and Catch 2000.
JR- Now I’m using a Fuego 2500 for topwaters and a Revo SX-HS for the Catch 2000s.
Both are on custom built Matrix rods with Recoil guides. Both are very light with great feel.
On Sept. 19, dedicated volunteers cleaned the beaches of Elmer's Island. Together with community stakeholders, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), along with a multitude of project partners hosted an Elmer's Island Trash Bash. So what axxhole thought this was cute? Note how CLEAN the beach is. It only takes one butthead…
