This afternoon I took a group of friends from Baton Rouge down for a short vacation. After some reports of the bite being off because of the neap tide I was a little worried but we managed a fine box of redfish and a flounder. This afternoon we fished probably 20 to 25 docks. The redfish bite has been great lately hopefully it will keep up.

I was disappointed that we didn’t catch a single yellow edge grouper or barrel fish but I guess there’s always next time!
I only have one picture right now but I’ll add a few more later.
A few kings are showing up offshore. It seemed like it was about to get really good for kings and then it slowed down when the water dirty’d up a little.
The weather report is 1 to 2 feet for the next week so now is a great time to get out if you get a chance!
We headed back toward the ramp and slipped in to Texar and Sam caught a nice 21in trout (his first ever) on a gulp Jerk Shad.
The wind slicked off just as we ended up our trip and it turned out to be a beautiful day!
Today I had a group of guys and one girl who ended up catching the biggest fish! We started out with sheephead and caught about 20 before heading to catch some redfish. We managed two keeper redfish, a nice black snapper, and several more big sheephead at the next spot. We finished up with a nice Bull red and some more quality convicts at our last stop to end up with about 30 sheephead, 2 redfish, and a black snapper in the box.
