Had the pleasure of taking the Wiginton's (Jeremy, Marcie, Seth, Ian & Sydney) fishing.

We loaded up with some live cocahoes from Terry's Live Bait and headed west again in search of some trout.

The northwest wind was stronger today so after bouncing around for a little while and catching only a few trout we decided it was time to head to the marsh and catch some reds.

This was the family's first ever fishing trip together and we wanted to make sure it a memorable one. (I think they had a blast)

Great day on the water with such a wonderful family,

Thanks,

Fishing with the Lebeau's (Jimmy, Eddie & John) and Bo.

We loaded up with some live shrimp and cocahoes from Terry's Live Bait and headed west in search of some trout.

Go figure its the middle of July and we had a northwest wind to deal with, but we did manage to find some keeper trout. Most of the fish were caught with Berkley Gulp under a cork and Matrix Shad on a 1/4 ounce jig-head.

Thanks guys,

The Ahrens group (Don came from Florida), sons (Jay and John came down from Iowa) to try their luck at some South Louisiana fishing in Leeville.

We loaded up with some live shrimp from Bada Bing Bait Shop, live minnows from Terry's Live Bait Shop and headed west out of Southwest canal.
Our first stop we found nothing but small trout so off to the next spot we went and found better trout. Once that bite slowed down it was off to try some of the rigs on the way back in.

Thanks guy's for a great trip as I really enjoyed spending time with such great folks.

Onboard we had Eddie & Jimmie Craft along with their daughter Brandy (birthday girl) and her husband Matt ready to catch some fish.
We left out of Leeville after picking up some live minnows from Terry's Live Bait and headed east.
The water looked dirty behind the island so we went to Four Bayou and found them hungry.

Thanks for the continued business and we will see y'all in a few weeks.

Fun day on the water busting up the trout in Grand Isle with Eleni and Jimmy.

Eleni was celebrating her birthday and what a birthday present she got catching some nice specks. One stop was all it took, but first we had to fight with the porpoises but after a couple hours they left and then the trout really turned on.

Fun times on the water and the action is really heating up.

Saturday, April 12, 2014 Texas Boyz Having Fun Down In Grand Isle

Had the pleasure of taking some Texas boyz fishing, Steve Roberts and Jason Simmons. Stopped by T-Pops station and picked up some live minnows and headed south to Bobby Lynn's marina. This was their first time down in Louisiana and we wanted to show them a great time on the bayou.

We headed straight for Grand Isle and our first stop produced nothing, then it was on to the next spot. Got the boat anchored with that new Power Pole provided by Bent Marine and we started picking up some real nice specks on Matrix Shad. Ole Steve managed to catch a nice red (32 inches) his biggest to date. The bite slowed down and we decided to head in with a nice box of fish.

That evening we launched at the public launch right behind Tpops in Golden Meadow and headed straight for the close by ponds. Bait of choice was some live cocahoes under a popping cork. We managed 2 limits of reds and a handful of trout which was more than enough for us to treat the boys to some Blackened Redfish.

For your next fishing adventure down in South Louisiana give us a call and we will take care of the rest.

Had the pleasure of taking some Oregon guys fishing this past Sunday Roger and Jake McKinnon.
Stopped by T-Pops station and picked up some live minnows and some boudin for them to try. This
was their first time down in Louisiana and also first time redfishing.

At first light we launched at the public launch right behind the station in Golden Meadow and headed
straight for the close by ponds. Bait of choice was some live cocahoes under a popping cork.

We picked up a few nice reds and decided to take them to Catfish Lake so they could experience some
of that awesome scenery that southern Louisiana has to offer.

Our next stop was all it took as we finished the day with some real nice redfish and a few speckled
trout too. Jake did bring his favorite salmon fishing rod and managed to catch some nice reds fishing a
Lemon Drop Matrix shad on a Rattle back jig.

For your next fishing adventure down in South Louisiana give us a call and we will take care of the rest.

Onboard Saturday afternoon we had Mark Blount, Pamela Ware and Trish Wren Muller.

We started the evening out fishing in Catfish Lake for some reds and found them biting on the west side of the lake. We had to pick through the just undersize ones to make a limit before the clouds ran us in.

Sunday morning the bad weather told us to wait until another day to finish our our trip so Part 2 to be continued.

Meet the girls at the marina and loaded up with some live shrimp and off to the beaches we headed.

First stop we found some small fish so we decided to move. 2nd stop nothing so off we went and the 3rd stop was the spot.

Had a great time with Gwen the birthday girl and her sisters Tish & Tina. Now she can officially say that she can fish with a spinning reel. Way to go Gwen.

Onboard today we had the family (Scott, Wade and Trina) down to pass a good time down on the bayou.

We started out in the lake fishing for some reds using some bait shrimp under a popping cork and found them hungry at our first stop. We didn't limit out but was close so we decided to try for some trout.

We finally manged to put 15 keepers in the boat, but had to weed through a bunch of small ones but it didn't matter as fun times were had.

Thanks to my brother inlaws and sister inlaw for a great time on the water.

Sunday morning up and early we headed back to fish for some more reds and the bite was a little tough but found a few and mananged to put together a nice mess of fish.

Onboard today we had Jimmie, Eddie and James(JT)and we headed to Grand Isle. One stop is all it took to find the trout as they were hungry and biting like crazy.

We were fishing live shrimp under a popping cork and also using tandem rigs with the Matrix shad Lemon Drop. The doggone porpoises moved in and we had a challenge on our hands trying to get them in before they caught our catch.

The bite slowed and the porpoises left and then it picked back up and we managed to put together a nice box of fish.

Loaded up the boat and headed back to Galliano Inn to clean fish.

Great day on the water with some good friends.

David Stark with Bent Marine joined me to go scouting for some big trout.

We loaded up with live shrimp from Terry's Live Bait and headed to West Timbalier. We found pretty green water but very few trout. The ones we did catch were real nice though.

Headed to East Timbalier and found green water again but not trout and a bunch of spanish mackerel. Didn't have a charter until Saturday so I knew we were gonna head east to Grand Isle.

Man what a windy day it was down the bayou.

Onboard we had the pleasure of taking the Hardy's from Opelousas (Harlan & Jeannine). This was their first ever salt water fishing trip and we were able to pass a good time on the water.

We started out fishing the Catfish Lake area using live minnows under a popping cork and the bite started out great but soon slowed, so off we went down Bayou Blue.

After a couple of stops we found the trout again using the Endura shrimip (white/chartruese tail) with their popping cork. Great combination.

It was time to call it a day so back to Galliano Inn fish cleaning station we went.

We still have a few opening in May, so give us a call to set up your next fishing adventure.

We headed straight for Catfish Lake and found some real nice specs hungry and willing to bite.
Most of the fish were caught using live cocahoe minnows under a popping cork and ranged from 15 to 19 inches.

We were on a great bite until the winds picked up but still managed to put together a decent box of fish.

A few weeks back I meet Rich while I was cleaning fish at the cleaning station at Galliano Inn and he requested some information on us taking him and some of his working buddies fishing. You see Rich, Steve and Sam are down here cleaning up after Hurricane Isaac and we sure thank these guys for all thier hard work. Funny thing I was telling the guys to meet me at the public landing by the ball park and asked if they knew where it was at. Steve said I sure do cause we were the ones who cleaned the landing. A big thank yall for that.

Cherie and I meet them at the landing where Rich and his wife JoAnn are from Michigan, Sam from Arkansas and Steve from Kansas were ready to experience some South Louisiana fishing.

We started off in Catfish Lake as the day before after some trout and found them biting. We had alot of throwbacks but they didn't mind as long as they were catching. After the bite slowed we headed to the ponds again to try our luck at reds. And yes they were biting.

Thanks for a wonderful day on the water,

Cherie and I had the pleasure of taking Greg & Logan Pierce, Reese Keen and Charles Rowell fishing. Logan's dad Greg had scheduled this trip to celebrate his son's 21st birthday which turned out to be a wonderful evening of fishing and a memorable one for father & son.

We got a late start due to a boat trailer bearing failure, but that didn't stop us from going get them.

We started out in Catfish Lake after some trout and only managed a few, so off it was to the ponds to chase some reds and we found them biting.

Dark thirty was fast approaching so off the lake and to the cleaning shed we went. After that the guys were headed to the camp where they cooked up some of their days catch.

Thanks so much guys for having the patience to wait on us while we repaired the boat trailer.

Hey Brian,

I have the 24ft Sea Hunt with a 300 Yamaha 4 stroke and I am totally pleased with the dry ride and durability of this boat.
A friend of mine just got the 22BR and he is well pleased with his boat also.

I had the bad luck of busting my lower unit on my third trip out and Bent Marine fixed me back up in no time. Great service department.

Yes the bite has been tough especially with all the wind and cold weather. Last weekend the water temperature was 60 degrees.

Having to work real hard to put together a nice box of fish.

This weekend looks great and we will be on the water for sure.

For reds we hit all along the north banks of the lake.
