The fishing is still good in the lake it's the catching that's getting harder.
FRIDAY: Gordon Crawford and crew fish with me. We started at the bridges and put a 5lb Flounder in the ice chest fast. Then we caught a 5lb Speck, I thought things were 'ON'. But it was tough going. Around 11 a rain storm ran us in for about 45 minutes. After it passed we went back out and the wind wouldn't lie. It made the fishing harder. We finished with 8 fat Specks & 4 Flounder. It was tough.

I had the pleasure to fish with Capt's Kenny Kreeger & Van Joffrion. We had a group of 9 anglers from all over the south. The conditions were great and we all put fish in the boat. Of course Capt Kenny out fished Van & I. BUT I will get him next time. And he know's it. Back at Tite's for 1pm with 50+ Speckled Trout and 6 to 8 Flounder. We all bounced plastics off the bottom for our fish. Several Specks close to 4lbs.

Skip St.Remain, His son, Nephew along with Danille came in for an ANGLING ADVENTURE. We headed for the lake. Arrived at our first spot, I explained the technique to them and we started fishing. First fish a solid 3lb Speckled Trout. 10 minutes later another 3lber. I then missed one at the boat (bigger). Another 45 minutes and 2 more 3+lber on ice. We finished that drift and moved to another bridge. Fished about 15 minutes without a hit. I was ready to move and wham, a good fish. Stayed another 15 minutes (nothing) then next bridge. We put 7 more Specks in the boat But the Sun, Beer and Bourbon St were taking it's toll. The gang called it quits just after noon. We finished with 12. Several over 3lbs.
