Had a good week. Went Tuesday with my buddy Chad in is new 24ft Lake and Bay...Talk about SWEET. Tricked out with Power Pole, Touch Screen GPS/Fish Finder, Etc. We Caught our Limit by 10:30. A good friend of mine, Brad, followed us and he limited out as well. Went Wed. With my Neighbor Al, his son Noah, My son Parker and his friend Ethan. Probably the best trip I have ever been on. I couldn't.... Read More
I'm off all week and can't stand all the wind. I checked the coastal forecast about 10:00 Sunday night and they dropped it to 5-10. Greeted by fog and about a 10mph southwest wind. Tried commissary for a while...water was muddy so I went to the south end and fished hard.Water was fishable on the south end of the lake. Went into West cove when the wind began blowing 15 - 20 from the west..... Read More
Went out to the Bay Saturday after my son's baseball game. Greeted by beautiful weather and fairly low winds. We started around 3:00 and fished till 7:30. My buddy and I fished around Blue Point and the Cove managing to keep 12 trout. Not much size but it sure felt good to feel something tugging on the line. Water was decent by VB standards (could see about a foot). There was absolutely no.... Read More
Fished the Acadiana Speck Club Tournament this Saturday. We had 3 people and caught our limit of trout. We had to weigh in our 5 biggest trout. Our biggest trout was 3.8 pounds and the five pound stringer weighed 16.08 pounds. I figured we would finish in the top ten but tenth place was an 18 pound stringer. 1st place was almost 24 pounds! Thats some serious trout. We used some live shrimp early.... Read More
Went to Big Lake on Sat. Fished all over, Turners, south end, West Cove. Beautiful water in West cove but not many fish. Ended the day with 14 trout and a red. Weather men were wrong again. Called for 5 to 10 but instead it was 15 to 20.
3 Days of Bliss! Went to Vermilion Bay on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday before Thanksgiving. On Monday I went by myself and limited out. I had to work hard for them and with one being picked up here and there. The next two days were spent with my good buddy. On Tuesday we caught over thirty trout with the bite turning on at 11:30. On Wednesday We had 35 trout in the boat by 10:30. We caught.... Read More
Went to Vermilion Bay on this past Saturday. Coastal Forecast called for 5 to 10 Mph winds. I think they meant 5 to 10 footers!! Well, wasn't quiet that bad. East wind blowing 15. Fished around the point with no success so decided to go to the pass. Birds every where on Caldwell but between current and wind it was hard to stay on the fish. The tide at the landing was over the warfs. On Friday a.... Read More
Went out to Tiger Shoals Monday and began to catch sandies 2 at a time so I tied on a rig that had 3 baits and caught 3 fish. After they hammered that for a while I decided to go with the Weapon of Mass Destruction! I tied on 5 baits at one time and my buddy almost fell out of the boat laughing and thinking....No Way. Of course, I'm thinking like an optimist as I always do. Just for extra fun I.... Read More
Took my little nephew (Well he used to be little) and my son. Had an awesome trip and I caugt 98 percent of mine on the Long A Bomber, My nephew caught most of his on a LSU Texas Trout Killer, My son caught on D.O.A's and others under a cork. This report is very late but I just learned how to work the Picture thing on my computer. We caught these in the last week of June. The second two pics.... Read More
Started out the day by getting live bait but none was needed. I always like insurance!! Had a couple of young bucks with me from Academy and a neighbor. The Academy duo had more tackle then the game wardens would allow. If you are wondering why they run out of the good baits all the time, I think I have solved the mystery. I would like to say that all were caught on one type of bait but with a.... Read More
When my partner asked me where the trout were, I replied...Somewhere over the Rainbow. I felt bad carma when he be began to sing it to me!!! Even his off key melody couldn't stop the bite. Water was a bit rough but it stayed clean. Caught most on plastic and some on Live shrimp. We caught these this past Thursday. We had to sweat out a thunder bumper and had even pulled up anchor but decided to.... Read More

Hope the wind dies down for tomorrow. He said they had 5 trout and a flounder in.... Read More
This may not be the correct place to post this but I figured you could send it to the right person. Vermilion Bay is not in the areas to Post a report. It should be in the south central region but there is no category for it.
