Nice Catch!

While vising his daughter here in college, dad and daughter team got in on some fishing down in Lafitte, LA.

The Speckled Trout were biting one after another today.  As soon as one was unhooked, the next  one was on the line.  Rachel landed a nice Redfish as well. We caught and released well over 250 Speckled Trout and arrived back at the dock with a cooler of 60 Speckled Trout.

Ted’s Nice Redfish

Ted and Jennifer, who has been fishing with me for years, were in town for Jazzfest and couldn’t pass up an opportunity to come down to Lafitte, LA and reel in some Resfish.

Today was a chilly day day but it in no way hindered our fishing.  We caught our limits of Redfish in the Bay Round area and caught and released another limit before heading back to the dock for the day.

Landing Redfish On A Fly Rod

Great Work!

Kurt and his family, from Pennsylvania, fished with me on this breezy and chilly day today.

Even though, it there was a chill in the air before safe-light, it quickly warmed up with clear and sunny skies.  However, the wind didn’t quite die down but it didn’t stop the Redfish from biting.  On the very first cast, we hooked a Redfish.  Kurt, an avid fly fisherman, tried his luck with his fly rod that he brought along. I enjoyed seeing Kurt land his feisty Redfish on a fly rod. We headed back to the dock with our limits in tow after catching and releasing a handful more.

Paige’s Redfish

Today I fished with father and daughter, Bruce and Paige, from Texas. The chill and breeze was still in the air with late cold fronts hitting the area.

We pulled off another successful day of landing Redfish. We headed back to the dock with 12 Redfish and 2 Speckled Trout.
