Aug 1 Update

Great Day on the water with the Delcambre family. Early AM out with no trout 1st stop but a round of casting/fishing lessons! (Ryan told me I would be challenged) Moved across river to another spot and it was on – loads of trout for all 3 from 12 – 15 inches. They ended up with 5 for the table tonight. The trout are getting bigger fast. It was a pleasure having Phil, Jill and Kyle on my boat for a fun filled trip. Kyle even wanted to swim with the porpoise but I told him Ryan would have to cover that excursion as a separate trip! Phil’s’ mom and dad; Ryan and Cathy were my first clients. Must have made a statement because they still call me!!!!! Cathy also taught what a PONCHO is for – Rain?????
My boy Michael has stuck his first bait soaked Big Drum for the year – not quite a citation at 39” but made him happy.  You can see it in photo; he’s grinning big about something! AND Ed Elliott has finally stuck his first Oldie. He has been at it for over a week fishing near about daily and got his first ever Old Drum.  He was by his self and hit a double on first fish losing one and getting one to boat. Called me and sound like he had hit the lottery! He got 1 more a while latter and is hooked. Both were in the upper 30s and I know he will see the 40+ soon the way he is fishing. Not bad for a BASS fisherman!!
The drum are here and finally getting a bait bite but don’t overlook shallows for sight casting. AND; a lot of folks have called wanting to know if I have any mullet? Remember I take your orders for your planned trips. Call ahead and won’t have to look for bait any more.
Oriental Rotary Club Tarpon and Slam event is set for 18 August. I am going to do the weigh in and want to offer a $10 gift certificate for anyone that brings a slot drum in for weigh in and releases ALIVE. With the stock shortage this year we all need to think conservative. Please do not throw a dead fish back to keep a larger one.
Call me to book a fun filled trip for Old Drum or Mixed bag soon as bookings are coming in fairly strong right now. Makes me happy! Love seeing people having an enjoyable time.
