The blue water is not far out. I saw more flying fish than I have ever seen.
The trout are starting to show up in the surf early this year. Had some customers catch some around the rocks the past 2 weekends. The crabs are also in the surf thick already. Bull reds crashing the bait along the surf and in the bays. Carmardelle's seafood caught this hungry red in a crab trap.
Caught this monster in the atlantic last month. It took 6hr 15 min to land. I was sore for 2 days.We went with Tuna Hunter out of Gloster.
Caught lots of cobia this week. Took the kids out and they had a blast.
Went fishing for amberjack and figured we would get a limit of snapper too. We used live hardtails down to about 150 ft for amberjacks and caught some BIG snapper
Late morning water spout in the bay
Short fishing trip yesterday morning. Caught these trout by 9am. In the surf.
The Carlisles caught these nice bull reds in the surf this evening. They caught 2 yesterday just like them from the boat.
My buddy was given this crab by a shrimper offshore. I am looking to get it mounted for him. Does anyone recomend a good taxidermist?
The Cajun tide beach resort made it through the storm with just some minor damage. Just got back Sunday night. The middle of the island did not get sand all over the roads like the ends did. No power for a few weeks more. Lots of poles down. The fishing is going to be great. Saw lots of bait in the surf and lots of fish feeding on them.
Went fishing yesterday for Robs birthday. The launch was out of live shrimp at 5:30 so we got some croakers. First stop it was just getting light and I saw some big swirls in the surf. Everybody casted out before the boat was stopped and had 4 reels pulling drag out . Bull reds. Rob landed the first one and it was the biggest one. After all that excitment Rob soon hooked the biggest trout of the day. We fished the surf from the boat all morning and had a blast. Most the trout we caught was on plastic.
The big trout are steady and the rat reds and bull reds showing up in good numbers.
The trout bite was slow yesterday so we ran out to the first rigs to get a few mangroves.
Took the kids fishing today and caught some nice snapper and a big 55lb amberjack.
The trout are showing up more and more in the surf as the summer starts heating up. Offshore has been good too.
Second day of fishing. No pics of third day.
Went fishing Sunday fished the grass line and caught wahoo mai mai lemon fish and snapper at the rigs 4 kids and 4 adults. The kids had a blast. Monday fished the surf and caught some nice mule trout till the tide stopped so we went to the first rigs and caught a 8.68lb mangrove and Fred caught a nice lemon fish on my trout pole. Penn 5500ss on a ugly stick with 17lb test. Went Tuesday and caught limit of some nice snapper and trolled the grass line. 5 hook ups only landed 2 kings. I think I need a bigger frezzer.
We caught some specks this weekend on live shrimp and live croakers. A few on a top dog. The small ones in Barataria bay and the big ones in the surf.
The trout are here for the summer. You can catch them in the surf and in the bay. They will hit just about anything, live or dead.
Went offshore yesterday and caught some amberjack. The blue water was about 30 miles out. The water close in was nasty from the river. Be careful out there. I saw lots of big logs and trees floating all over the gulf. Not good to run in the dark right now.
