Trout Starting to Bite!! 2-16-16

The guys with INOLECT were back onboard with me today. After a enjoyable night at the Reel Inn, we departed after daybreak due to the fog. Our first stop found perfect conditions with a falling tide, but not a single fish. Our second stop found a few trout willing to bite our Limbo Slice and Tiger Matrix Shad. The fish were few and far between so we switched to plan B. We headed to a hole and dropped shrimp over a junk pile. The heads and Reds were there, they just were super finicky. Most every red we caught was 14-15 inches. We added a few heads then moved on. We switched to some reefs and had the shrimp under the corks. Only one nice puppy drum to be had. Another hole had the convicts picking away at our shrimp and only adding a few that messed up!! Enough of messing with the convicts. I decided to go and check a area I haven't fished in quite some time, and it payed off. The water was cleaning up with the incoming tide and the trout started to respond. We got on a decent run of nice specks on Matrix Shad before calling it a day to clean fish (a slow steady retrieve worked best). The customers were from out of state, it was their first time fishing in Louisiana and I'm pretty sure it won't be their last!!! Thanks guys for the continued business.

Calm winds the next few days. Give me a call as the trout are showing signs of turning back on!!

That Rigid video shows the easy part. How about a video showing the cut through the rib bones to remove the filet from the backbone.

Just search Rob Dupont. Capt. Rob did a video back on Jan 31 showing the hard part.

This is a 6 amp saw, plenty of power. You could filet a 2x4 with it. But it does take some skill to make a blade to fit it.

I'm using a fish scaler to hold down the fish and yes the first cut off the bone is just as easy as getting the fillet off the scales. I have that video on Facebook, check it out!

I have a video on Facebook taking the meat off the bone, it works just as easy. I deleted it off my phone so I can't post it here, but you can view it on Facebook. I'll post a picture of the blade when I get a chance to take a picture of it.
