I can’t complain about this summer’s Jack season. Although I had to deal with constant west winds and the floods in Baton Rouge pumping dirty water into my main Jack fishing area we had a very successful Jack season.
Although we have had constant west winds, which is our least favorite wind direction in Louisiana, the Jack fishing has been very solid. We have had some good pushing fish on the flats and lots of schooling action in open water. We boated a total of 35 jacks on fly in 12 days of fishing. […]
During the summer months we try to get an early start to beat the heat, fortunately summer is one of the best times to hunt pushing fish. Both Redfish and giant Jack Crevalle become very active at this time. Their mornings are spent cruising flats in search of bait. Although we start earlier with low […]
This has definitely been one of the best spring seasons I’ve seen in a while and it’s looking like the good fishing should continue into summer. The fish in the interior marsh have grouped up and a 20 + fish school has been a common occurrence. The temperature is the only problem with this time […]
Starting in June schools of mullet start moving into Lake Ponchartrain. Following these schools is one of my favorite and most overlooked gamefish, Jack Crevalle aka Marsh tuna aka Jackie boy… With the right conditions the lake clears showing its vast sand flats littered with small grass patches. The jacks cruise up and down the […]
Summer is hot! So instead of poling around in the marsh we decided to take it to the big water in hopes of finding something different… We found it! The first buoy we pulled up to had about a half dozen Cobia floating just underneath the surface. The water only had about 3-4 ft of […]
Recently we have been having some great action all over the marsh. From popper fishing for small reds and sheepsheads in the ponds to outside fishing for bull reds, we’ve been trying to stay busy this summer. I had Jack and Denny back in town for a couple of days and when they are here […]
We have had a great summer with all kinds of fish being thrown at and caught. The latest being this 26 lb bull that I caught on a calm, hot, summer afternoon. Slot Fish are around in droves. I have seen groups of up to 100 fish just milling around in a pocket. We have […]
It has been a pretty good spring and not a bad start to the summer. The fish have started grouping up and we have had plenty of clean water to work with. The gator population is certainly not hurting as well. It seems like they have a gator on every turn. The Sheepsheads have also […]
Tuesday – Thursday of last week were the 3 most ridiculous days i’ve EVER had. David Mangum, Greg Dini, and I went out to see what the fishing was like after the storm. David brought along all his camera gear so naturally I figured if there is this many cameras on board the trip was destine […]
Recently we have had some Jacks coming in and crushing schools of mullet on the same flats we are catching monster bull reds. Although these creatures are fast moving and only give you a small window to get a shot on them if you put the fly in the right place and move it fast […]
Had the pleasure of fishing Boman Lapp on the bow of my boat this day. He is an ex-guide who was very able to cast the 12 wt we were throwing. I knew with the perfect conditions and the ability of my caster we could pick and choose our fish(25+ lbers). We did just that. We landed 5 […]
I had two days of fishing with Carlyle and with great weather the first day it wasn’t a problem getting to the big fish grounds and even sticking a few of them. Day two presented a challenge with overcast skies and varying winds from calm to 15+mph. We decided to stay close, mostly due to […]
I had Mr Tadayoshi Sakurai on board for a stretch of 4 days. Although he knew little english he did bring a translation book that he gave to me after i tried to explain left, right, 11 o’clock, etc. So I looked up some directional words and went to work. The only words I focused on was left, […]
Headed out on my own to get some footage of these beasts swimming around and maybe sticking one or two. The weather was on and the fish were there. Here are some stills that I thought came out pretty sweet.
