Always been impressed by reports by Capt Mike Gallo, Angling adventures of LA, on the internet and from people I know that have fished with him. Tuesday night at a CCA meeting in Slidell he did it again. Besides sharing tips on redfish catchin in the marsh he explained WHY he chooses the equipment, presentation and location, best fit to the fisher people in the boat with him on that particular....

Real early start from DOCKSIDE with 100 live shrimp and 2 friends from work (guess they still my friends). Me, Mike and Chris headed out to win a small work related fishin tournament. Plan of the day was hit the Hospital wall (not literally) on the way to Lake Borgne rigs then fish back thru unknown and Lake Catherine to the bridges at Hwy 11. Weigh in around Carr dr.
Almost to the wall and.... Read More
Intellicast prediction, Wind light and variable, later ,east @6. My prediction, light fallin tide for four hours(according to my system using river gauges.com), perfect combination for some pilin jiggin at the twin span.
Early start,(4:30am launch at DOCKSIDE beat the crowds), got a tip from dockside that the hot spot was toward the Rigolets but already made up my mind there would be enough.... Read More

Decided at 7:30am to make a trip to my favorite 5 mile long reef. Quick launch at dockside at 8:30 and decided to try the hwy 11 bridge around mid lake. Half hour later moved to the south shore reef by the twin spans. No takers at either locn. Light fallin tide and light wind made fishin easy , catchin was another story. Made the move to the trestle and started chunkin around 174 at 9:30. Did ok.... Read More
Nice weather forecast for Friday made the decision to fish today easy. A friend, Chris, accepted the offer to go so we made our way to DOCKSIDE at 5:30am. Already had a line but all were prepared so the launchin went fast and after payin for the launch and a couple bags of ice we were off to my favorite 5-mile long reef. Light west wind had the lake a little choppy that stayed with us all.... Read More
Decided to try the lake this morning before the high wind prediction set in. Launched at Dockside, said hello to Mr. Bill and headed for my favorite 5 mile long reef at 5:45 or so. Tried the north end but dirty water lowered my confidence so i headed for old faithfull 174. Started pickin off a few right away and then the bite stopped. Moved past the small armada there and fished to 176+ where.... Read More

Caught myself singing”IT‘S OVER” (Roy Orbison) on the way home from the Rigolets launch yesterday.. Made the trip to Byu Biloxi from the Rigolets at daylight hoping to get a few hours of fishin in before the front came thru. Me and the front (with nonstop wind and rain)got there about the same time. By the time I ran thru the marsh to my first spot that has been good for 9-10 quick.... Read More

Met up with Wayne about 6 am and made our way from the Rigolets to Byu Biloxi Friday to do some deep water exploring and try to avoid the expected crowds taking advantage of the only decent weather report for a while. Explore we did. Tried 4-5 spots that I have not fished in a while but have produced in the past and found a few throwback trout and 1 keeper red. Made the move to the deeper water.... Read More
Friday trip to the lake P bridges turned into a one more trip to Byu Biloxi to see if a limit of trout were still there. All I saw in the weather forecast was WIND: light, and variable, and some chance of rain. Didn’t see when the front was going to come thru.
Launched at Rigolets and made the quick run to Byu Biloxi across a choppy Lake Borgne. Headed for some deep water and started tight.... Read More
No intention to fish today, BUT when the GOTTA GO hits ya, you gotta go. Slow start this morning after a great party at Nephews for the Saints game. Boiled crabs , raw oysters and all the snackins the law allows. Hooked up and launched at the Rigolets, quick trip to the ICW to try and join in on the DOCKSIDE video fun. Really low tide so I ducked into the first canal I could float the boat in.... Read More
Nephew had to work(crabbin) so Me and Wayne made the trip to the Biloxi Marsh. Fog had Slidell and the roads heading out of town a mass of confusion. Stop and go traffic on 433 started to back up at the salt byu bridge and stayed that way to hwy 90. Late launch at rigolets and slow ride to Lake Borgne was par for the coarse but 5 miles into the lake the fog was gone and we made the rest of the.... Read More
Made the trip from Rigolets to Byu Biloxi at daylight. Few bumps but not a bad ride. Started at cutoff with poppin cork with chartruse cocaho tail tipped with shrimp.

Headed for Mussel and Stump as.... Read More
