quick trip to the muddy waters of Lafitte
quick trip to Lafitte
Had a chance to chase tarpon from a yak this past week in Florida. Full report @
Was able to break away and took a stroll down to Golden Meadow. Water was clear in most areas, water temps were 53-54 degrees, overcast, and raining at times. Started in the pond by the pump station, landed somewhere around 30-40 trout in an hour, but could only keep about 1 out of every 10, then the pumps turned on and shut the entire area down. From there moved to catfish lake in search of more trout and some reds. Picked up 5-6 trout on the way to the lake on topwater, some good size, some tiny,(see pic), also found a nice little hole on the way out that was full of reds, didn't take 45 minutes to land 8 reds, and I kept 5 of them. Moved around the lake a good bit picking up a trout here and there and then the rain came. Started my way back to the launch around noon 30 with a solid bag of fish. Ended with a limit of reds and 21 specs for the day. Caught specs on matrix shad tiger bait on jig head, spook jr, and some on a corkey, caught all the reds on a matrix shad, site casted every one, had to sit it on the bottom in front of them, they wouldn't take anything moving, had to crawfish it through the mud right up to em.
cold, wet, fun day
Good fight with a red and then I was surprised with some fins in the distance and then a small tsunami as it approached..
monster fish from a kayak
lots of smokey mud trails and fast moving reds within fingertip reach.
Lots of action on top, and reds running everywhere
Lots of action, enjoy
Cold windy rainy day, But some serious bull reds battling a couble Hobie Kayaks
windy, cold, and lots of rain yesterday morning, but we were able to catch and release some monster Bull Reds, and to add in the fun it was all from a kayak. Enjoy
Low water means tails are out of the water. Great site fishing and a lot of action. Enjoy. http://youtu.be/oZ5jkzbdj84
Caught a yak full of reds and couple trout. Great trip, caught on Matrix shad, gold spoons, and gulp attached to rockport rattler heads. water was extremely low and the tails were showing everyhwere. Enjoy the action. http://youtu.be/oZ5jkzbdj84
http://youtu.be/KxD0KY8HerQ This is a video put I together from 2 trips within a 12 hour period last week. thanks to wingman for accompanying me to leeville and going in blind, and thanks to my brother for mustering up the courage to take your first kayak fishing trip. Sorry we didnt get into the the 40 inch reds as promised, but that sheepshead and black drum gave you all you could handle from my POV. HAd a great time and saw some new waters, looking forward to another Leeville trip and one to the MINES as everyone calls it very sooooon. Merry Christmas to everyone, hope you enjoy.

Great day on the water with a cold and wet tail.
Great day in the Hobie in South Louisiana. Enjoy.
Long hard paddle with some strong currents and hard NE wind. Very spotty but the filled the box. Caught on top dog, and gulp under cork and jigging on bottom. Looooong day
Long hard windy day. Caught on topwater early and plastics on the bottom as the water warmed up. Lots of wind. Good box of trout and limit of reds.
Good evening in the lake with my daughter. Was able to set up an extra chair in the back of the yak and my daughter had a blast realing em in. I can remember when my dad used to check me out of school early, this one will be memorable. All on artificial keeping it right about the grass about a foot and a half off the bottom. Reasonably fast retrieve, chicken on a chain cocahoe and H&H glow with chartreuse.
