“Yes, We Have No bananas Today” is the nonsensical title of a novelty song composed by Frank Silver and Irving Cohn for Broadway in 1923. Like the song, the little fish that Louisiana coastal anglers call “banana fish” is self-contradictory.

Speckled trout on fly? To quote Si Robertson, it’s on like Donkey Kong! A game plan for putting a nice mess of fish in the box starts off with poppers around sunrise, switching to weighted flies like clouser minnows and charlies under a VOSI around mid-morning, then finishing the day with poppers near sunset.

“I’ll fish Gosier two days after a front, when we have a bluebird sky and very little wind,” Bourgeois said. “The cooler November weather means you don’t have to start fishing as early in the mornings, and between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. is perfect for fishing reds on the flats at Gosier. It can be an incredible sight to see when huge schools of reds cover the shallow flats, and they hunt and hit baits very aggressively. Schools of big black drum do the exact same thing and hunt over the flats along Gosier.

“On days with wind, say a brisk north wind blowing 15 to 20 mph, I’ll fly out here and land in the cove, and we’ll have Breton Island all to ourselves,” Bourgeois said. “Boats won’t make that run from any port in those winds and seas. We can wade-fish the entire length of the bay side for trout and reds, and sometimes we’ll walk across the sandy island and fish the Gulf side for reds.
