BILOXI MARSH REPORT

I had the great pleasure to fish with Louisiana fishing legend Dutch Prager and his fishing partner Richard Kilgore. Between these two fisherman I had close to 150 years of fishing experience! ! ! I have fished with Dutch for over 5 years now. Dutch loves the Biloxi Marsh as I do, So thats where I pointed the Cajun Limo. Our first spot provided not a bite. Our second spot produced a 13' Speck by Dutch and several small Reds that Dutch taged and released. After the first couple of hours only produced 1 keeper Redfish I knew the bright moon the night before would make the bite later in the day. My third spot had several pods of REDFISH crusing the bank. We picked up one more for the box. I decided to stay in the area waiting for the bite to turn on. At noon we had 3 fish in the box 2 Reds and a trout. At 12:40 we had 9 Reds in the box and the bite had picked up. By 1:00 the limit was reached along with a few Reds we released (Dutch & Richard like the smaller reds) & a bonus Black Drum. We had to wait them out. If you have a bright moon the night before your trip and the action is slow, stay with it until you find some, then wait them out. When they turn on, you'll get your limit. We went from 3 in the box to 3 on at a time. Dutch and Richard did a great job as always.

I have some dates open in Sept, I am the only guide in the Slidell area not working for BP. Give me a call and I'll put you on fish until your favorite guide comes back to fishing.

I have on site accommodations and I GUARANTEE FISH ! ! ! 985-781-7811 or 877-4-AAofLA

Dave Hausman came in from Iowa with son Kenny (9) and brother N law Dan. We fished the local marsh to catch a limit of nice REDFISH. Live shrimp under a cork was the ticket to some great action. The shrimp would jump out of the water to get away from the Reds and you could see the REDFISH attack the shrimp on top the water. Little Kenny had a smile a mile long. Check out the pictures!!

Time to catch up on a few reports. I have been catching good numbers of Redfish.

Johnny Newsome and still working friend Jeff Harris came in from Al to tangle with some Redfish. We fished the western shore of Lake Borgne with live shrimp under a cork and spinners & spoons to catch a limit (10) of nice grilling sized REDFISH, and 6 Flounder. It was good to fish with Johnny & Jeff. I look forward to there return.

I fished with Paul Lea and his son PJ a few years back. This trip Paul also brought friend Chuck and his son CJ. I helped the boys in the front of the CAJUN LIMO while Chuck & Paul fished the back. We fished the same area as the day before with live shrimp under corks to catch another limit (20) of REDFISH and 2 Flounder. A fun time was had by all. We missed the rain and the heat, back at the dock before lunch.

I have some dates open in August and September. The REDFISHING has been good. By mid month the grass in the duck ponds will die off, making for some great sight fishing. Call to book your ANGLING ADVENTURE 985-781-7811 or 877-4-AAofLA. I GUARANTEE FISH & FUN! ! ! !

They are all from Texas. Capt's Tommy and John helped me out with this group and as always did a great job. After 2 days of fishing with Spinners, Spoons, Chatterbaits & shrimp under a cork this group of 7 had 14 limits of Redfish, a few Black Drum and several fat Flounder. This group had the SPOTS & DOTS LAKE HOUSE smelling like deer sausage and fresh Redfish on the grill. They are all good fishermen and I always look forward to fishing with them. They'll be back soon before deer season opens, then I will not see them until next year.

ANGLING ADVENTURES FISHING REPORT
I had the good fortune to guide and fish with Velma St.Romain and her grandson Andrew (13). Our plan was to fish the platforms in Lake Borgne early with live shrimp and catch as many specks as we could. Then move into the Biloxi Marsh to see if we could get Andrew to catch his first Redfsih. First platform only 2 Specks to show and several ' horn trout'. Moved to another rig, put the trolling motor down and started fishing around the rig. Velma caught a nice 6lb Black Drum. We circled the rig back to where we started and caught a few Specks. I held us in that spot, we got baited up again and caught a few more. I slipped the anchor down and we caught 26 good trout in about 45 minutes. A boat moved within 50 yards of us and killed the bite. Velma and Andrew were ready to head in. I talked them into fishing the marsh for 30 minutes to see if we could get Andrew hooked up on a REDFISH. We made the run into the marsh. I set Andrew up with a live shrimp under a cork and he caught his first REDFISH a nice one over 10 pounds. Back at my dock before lunch. We all had a great time.

I have several good days open in August and Sept. October and November are starting to book up. Call to book your ANGLING ADVENTURE 985-781-7811 or 877-4-AAofLA.

FISHING REPORT

Buddy Clark came in with a group of 9 anglers. They spent the evening having some great seafood at Phil's Cafe' Marina. The next morning I could smell a great breakfast coming from the kitchen in the SPOTS & DOTS LAKE HOUSE. Before you knew it 9 anglers were in the boats ready to fish. Some wanted specks, some wanted Redfish, some didn't care. This group is from central Miss area. I took my group to a shell reef in Lake Borgne. Capt John headed to the bridges over Lake Pontchartrain, Capt John F headed to the marsh for Redfish. Of course there were bets, Biggest fish, fish with the most spots, longest fish, you get the idea. Around lunch we put all the fish on the table for a dock shot. This group knows how to have a fun day!!! Capt. John H and John F helped me clean 161 trout, 11 Redfish, 4 Flounder, 3 Sheepshead and 2 Blk Drum. We all had a fun time. Buddy will be in later this month with another fun group, for another ANGLING ADVENTURE!!!

Trout Slam
Here is a report by my client on Friday. With a picture.

Cuda I took my girlfriend Debbie fishing Friday with Captain Mike Gallo of Angling Adventures of LA. We dodged a couple of showers and managed to stay dry. We fished in Lake Bourne with live shrimp and soft plastics. Turned out we didn't need the shrimp as the trout were hittng everything we threw at them. We had only one throwback, only measured two and came back with 50 specks and 26 white trout. We did throw back about 30 white trout since we had as many as we wanted already. All the specks were fat with about half of them were really nice sized. We left the fish biting to get back before a big storm we couldn't dodge. Capt. Mike helped Debbie with with some fishing tips and I learned a couple of things as well. Mike's a great teacher and will have you hooked up in no time even if you are not very experienced or just a little rusty. With Mike's help, Debbie caught more fish than she ever had. We had a great time, heard some great jokes and stories, and caught more fish than since the last time we fished with Capt. Mike. We invited family over for a fish fry that night-can't get any better than eating fish only a few hours old. Thanks for the great trip Capt. Mike and we'll see you soon.
