Caught twelve nice ones with only a few throw backs and the feeding frenzy was over in about 15 minutes. Couldnt get on.... Read More
What storm? Launched both days out of Rigolets Marina and headed to the marsh. Saturday was a lot more windy than Sunday was, but we got soaked Sunday. Saw a few more boats out but not many, I think the weatherman scared most people away. No limits caught , but we caught some really nice fish and at least a hundred 11-11.5 throwback trout and probably 20-25 rat reds. Had a blast both days!!!

Thanks to Terry from Catch-Dat for pointing us in the.... Read More

Had some friends in from the east coast this weekend.They wanted to hit Bourbon Street Friday night so I took them down and we had a blast.
