A fun day of fishing
Joe Jenks rolled into town from Minnesota for some fishing and football. He brought his 2 nieces Nina and Jackie with him. The day was great putting 15 reds plus some drum and heads in the boat. Lots of fun and a little sh!+ talking made for a fun experience for everyone. Joe plans on bringing some of his ice fishing buddies down next year. I'll see you then Joe!

another great day on the water
We put a hurting on the fish in the marsh this morning with Scott Speer and his son Eric. My crew was from Dallas Texas and fish a lot of salt water out of Galveston. They decided to take a ride to Shell Beach Louisiana and see what we got going on. Scott and Eric were great fisherman and together we boxed 74 trout, 2 reds, and 2 heads. Campos live shrimp was the ticket about 3 ft under a popping cork.

Another great day red fishing!
Andrew Artigue and his father Joe join me for another day of hot redfishing in Shell Beach. We fished in Hopedale again and were not disappointed. The redfish were pretty cooperative and we even caught a few on the gold spoons. Our final total was 15 Reds, 1 nice flounder and a nice mixed box of trout, heads, and drum.

Redfish fun
We whacked the redfish in Hopedale today. Tommy Wagner join me with his parents Mr. Charlie and Ms. Terry for a super hot red fish bite this morning. Mr. Charlie and Ms. Terry are from Texas and are true fisherman but have never fished out of Shell Beach. We fished one pond and made several stops. The bite was so good that I decided to join in on the action to bring a few filets home with me. We ended the day with 20 redfish plus a few trout and drum.\r\nSpecial thank you to Susan Danielson for the referral.

Honeymoon trip
Fun day on the water with newlyweds, Ryan and Paige Frye. This trip was part of their honeymoon and man it was a blast. The wind was pretty stiff so we stayed in Bay Eloi for most of the day. We put a great box of fish together with a total of 50 specks, 2 reds, and 2 heads.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

like father, like sons
Paul Saltaformagio joined me with his father Paul Sr. and his brother Mike. It was a one stop shop for us today. The fish were hitting pretty well, but more importantly, my guys brought their A-game for sure. I'm thinking we may have missed 10 fish total all morning. Paul Sr. had the hot hand, whacking one fish after another. Mike and Paul stayed hot on his heels until we finished them up. We ended the day with 75 trout and another trip booked next week.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

another great day on the water
Good day fishing with Charlie Garretson and his good friend and local sheriff Alex Hodge. They drove down the evening before from Hattiesburg and stayed at Capt. Frank's camp in Shell Beach. I picked them up for 5:00 and we headed out. The wind was blowing out of the west at 15 so we were stuck fishing lees in Eloi. They made us work for them but my guys wouldn't give up. We fished hard and finally got to the number we needed. We ended the day with 50 specks and some happy anglers.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

2 days of specks and reds
A good couple of days with Reggie Hayes and his father Pat. The father and son duo come down from Indiana(Pat) and New York(Reggie) for 4 days of hardcore fishing in Louisiana. They spent the first two days fishing in Venice, La catching tuna and grouper. They spent the last two days fishing trout and reds with me in Shell Beach, la. Day one the guys were pretty worn out from their previous two days so we went out into the Sound looking to catch some trout early and take it to the house. After a couple of stops and just a handful of trout and 1 jack crevelle, I got a call on the radio from Capt. Jonathan (Reel Excitement Charters) that he was on a ferocious bite and to get there quick. So we slide on in as Jonathan finished up and the specks started hitting the deck. We made quick work of it and took it to the house. The next day we woke up to some fairly high winds. We decided to stay close in Bay Eloi and fish some lee shorelines before we went looking for reds. We put a few in the  box before we went to the Biloxi marsh to catch our reds. Our total for each day was:rnDay 1- 75 specks and 1 redrnDay 2- 32 specks and 10 redsrnrnThese guys are hardcore and fished incredibly well and I can't wait to get them on the boat again next year.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

Summer Heat
The summer heat is here and the trout love it. Had a great day with AJ Madison, his wife Tracy, and their 2 sons Abdul and Ahmad. We made one stop in the Sound and slowly started pecking away at some good sized trout. There was no tide movement and those Campo's live shrimp were doing the trick so I didn't want to leave. Capt. Brandon (Reel Shot Guide Service) was on the other side of the rig and really started to put some fish in the boat. He hollered at me to squeeze on in and before you knew it we were on the fish too. Ms. Tracy was the angler of the day catching the only bull red and some of the prettiest trout in the box. The bite slowed to nothing, the water never moved, and the temperature kept rising. We called it a day with 71 specks, 1 bull red, and 4 sheepshead. AJ and his family had a blast and will be returning this fall when the temps. are much more reasonable. Special thanks to Capt. Brandon for letting me slide in on great bite.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

A talented young fisherman
Fun day fishing with Buster Anderson, James, and Buster's grandson Eliot. We had a successful day bouncing around in Bay Eloi. Big Eliot (10 yrs old) was by far one of the most talented young fisherman that I have fished with. This kid was casting on the money, sticking the fish, and flipping em in the boat like a natural. I'm telling you guys he's going to be a great fisherman. Any way we ended the day with 88 trout and 1 red. I can't wait to get them back on the boat.Jakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

Windy day
Well the wind really picked up today. I picked up Harold Anderson, his son Trevor, and his father Wendell from Breton Sound marina for 5:00am. The wind was blowing 15 on our side of the SSW so our options were limited concerning trout fishing. We fished around the MRGO and a couple lee shorelines in Eloi. We caught a few trout but the keepers were few and far between. We decided to change the game plan and go look for a few reds. We went to the Biloxi Marsh, and at the second stop hit a decent lick. We bounced around the same pond and picked away to top off the box. We ended the day with1 Bull Red (that we released) 15 reds, 3 heads, and 8 trout.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

We got em'
Today I had the pleasure of fishing with David Moore and his good friends Chuck and Dale. The morning started off strong. At our first stop we put 30ish decent trout in the box before they got small and the white trout showed up. The weather was beautiful, so I decided to head out deeper in the Sound to look for some larger fish. We caught some good ones but never got on a good bite again. We nickeled and dimed our way through the Sound before we finally got what we needed. Let's be clear, we worked our tails off to catch our fish but my crew never gave up. We ended the day with 75 trout, 1 bull red, and 8 heads. My guys were awesome and had faith that we would get the job done.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

A great day fishing
Great day fishing with Jesse SanGiovanni  and his friends. Jesse and his uncle David contacted me a couple months ago about a fishing trip while they were in New Orleans celebrating jesse's bachelor party. They had 6 guys total so I had Capt. Rory Rorison run the trip with me. We both fished different areas in  the Sound and really put the smack down on the fish. We ended the day with 170 specks and a handful of reds, drum, and sheepshead. The guys were from the East Coast and were amazed at the fishery and liberal limits that we have in Louisiana. There is already a talk about a second bachelor party next year.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

A family fishing trip
Had a fun day on the water with Bill Corcoran, his wife Marjorie, and their grand daughter Jordan. Jordan was visiting from Knoxville, Tennessee and had never been fishing in her life. We left Campo's Marina around 6:00am and headed for the Sound. Shortly before we pulled up to the rig, it started to get a little bumpy. That didn't stop the fish from biting. We put 51 trout in the boat before the bite slowed down and the wind picked up. We fished a couple of islands to get out of the wind and didn't do much. Bill and Marjorie really wanted to put Jordan on a redfish so we made a move into the marsh. We pulled up to the spot and started picking away at a mixed bag of reds and trout including the fish of the day, Jordan 38in bull red, which she decided to release to fight another day. We ended the day with 58 trout, 7 reds, and a drum. They are already planning another trip in November when Jordan's mother can join us.rnThe fishing has been smoking hot! rnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!

Rain Rain go Away
After a tough week of cancelations due to weather and/or weather forecasts. I made it back out yesterday with Mr. Paul Mavis and his crew. Capt. Frank (Fishing with the King guide service) helped me out with the extra boat, he brought out Pablo, Charles, Jerry, and as always his deckhand Logan Asevado. I brought out Mr. Paul, Brody, and Justin. We both fished different areas of the Biloxi Marsh and the reds went nuts! We ended the day with 40 reds, a handful of trout, and a good mixed bag of Heads and Drum. The guys had a blast and couldn't say enough about fishing with Logan on board. Logan busts his a$$ everyday and is a great young man to work with. Special thanks to Capt. Frank and Logan for their help and showing these guys a great time.rnrnJakamo South is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach,LArnAll fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp!!!
