"The "Jack" Hammer" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/14
 

Chris Ellis and his son Jack joined me again for some backwater action. We again had a hard time getting a net full of menhaden, but the time spent getting bait was worth it. Jack put the hammer down on some really nice flounder up to 4 pounds. The Ellis family will be eating good tonight. Jack also found 4 nice reds, but not one bigger than his 30 incher on his last trip. I can't express how much I appreciate Chris and his son Jack for giving me the opportunity to put them on the fish. I always enjoy my time on the water with them and they always seem to catch plenty of fish making me look like I know what I doing. See ya on the water!

"Go Time" | OIFC | 06/25/14
 

Tomorrow is day one of the tournament.  Nobody in the field of competitors seem too confident including myself.  But, normally how that works is everyone sand bags leading up to and then at the scales everybody has good fish.  I wish I could say that was me.  I caught a few fish today in the storms but still nothing I'm very excited about.  My plan is to swing for the fences tomorrow and run 100+ miles back to my day one pre fish spot.  It wasn't a great bite there but it was the best I've found this week.  There are lots of risks to this plan but I don't have anything to lose and no confidence any where else.  If it's storming tomorrow morning, which is a real possibility, I will have to alter my plan and come up with something close by.   Typical Team OIFC- Checkers or Wreckers.

Barrett text says he headed to the scales with a good bag of fish...if he can make it 100+ miles, thru 3 locks, numerous bridges, mud flats, and 800 alligators. Standby for report.

"Flounder Pounding" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/25/14
 

John Fink and Robert Fink joined me for a half day earlier this week. We started off our morning catching live menhaden near the Sunset Beach bridge. It took me longer to get a net full than I anticipated. The bait was mostly scattered and not flipping consistently. We finally did load the live well down with bait, but it was on the boarder line of being too small. We made our move to float live shrimp for trout, but the pinfish were just too quick. We hit a few flounder holes and it was game on! John and Robert put a pounding on the flounder. After filling the box full of good eating it was time to find a line stretcher. We moved to a redfish hole and baited our hooks with live shrimp. Robert smoothly worked a solid 25 incher to the boat. John quickly followed with another. Both anglers got one more before we called it a day. It was a good day. That's how we get it done in Remington Country! See ya on the water!

"Still Searching" | OIFC | 06/24/14
 

Today was another day of aimless searching for redfish.  I tried a variety of areas including chasing birds on the big lake which yielded lots of trout, jetty fishing, marsh fishing, lake fishing, and oil rig fishing.  The result, a big zero.  I ran into some of the other local tournament guys and everyone is singing the blues.  Something is apparently off as normally the fish are everywhere or so they say.  It's a bad sign when you see one of the top local tournament guys jigging docks. 

I spent a lot of the day trying to figure out how to get back where I was yesterday in a reasonable amount of time.  I could either run 110 miles by ocean or 95 miles by waterway.  The problem with the waterway is it requires waiting on 2 bridges and 2 sets of locks.  The bridges aren't too bad but the locks are unpredictable.  It could take 15 minutes or an hour and 15 minutes.  So, the inland option is a risk but with the predicted weather, it may be the only option. 

Tomorrow is the last day of practice so hopefully I can find something worthwhile a little closer by.  It's not looking too good though I have to admit.

"36 pounder" | | 06/24/14
 

The kingfish on the right of this picture weighed in at nearly 36 pounds. We caught the fish on a live pogey in 80 feet of water. The bait was in about ten feet of water this morning off of Ocean Isle. Along with the big king we also caught several big amberjacks and a mahi. Sent from my iPhone

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/24/14
 

Flounder and redfish have been the main targets lately on the backwater scene for me. They have been cooperating on most of our trips. Speckled trout have also made a showing from time to time. Speckled trout have reopened for harvest at 4 per person and 14 inch minimum length. Live shrimp under a float or fished on the bottom will tempt all three species. Live menhaden are producing more and better flounder. See ya on the water!

"A Few more backwater pictures..." | Tiberias - 22' | 06/24/14
 

James got him a nice flounder along with some nice reds hanging around the Sunset area. My son Jake got out with me Saturday on a fun trip and landed a couple of 25 inch reds. Joyce with a stud over the slot red caught while fishing live menhaden under the docks. It is that time of year when the fishing can be fast and furious. Other times you need patience and persistence to get the bite. The new moon is upon us and the fishing is good in the backwater right now. See ya on the water!

"Near Shore" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/24/14
 

Sunday friendly "Winner Take All Tournament" proved the kings are not too far out.  We began at the 90's and moved out a little.  I honestly am having brain lock and can't remember exactly where but since there were 14+ boats fishing it's no secret.  We were close enough that we had 2 bay boats and a skiff fishing.  A big thanks to Team Beeracuda's Tim Gray for putting this tournament together.  The format was fun and  I hope we have more just like it!!!

Anyway I digress.  There were several "small" kings caught, several in the mid 20's and a few tipping the scales at 30+ lbs.  All of which could win or ar least finish in the money in the Jolly Mon.  The 1st boats out caught bait and boogied.  We were later getting out and struggled.  Our charter boats on some days found it quickly and on some struggled.  If you don't see bait on top, look for mud balls.  I hope you have a heavy net if that's the case.  Also you better be brave enough at the helm to ge t in about 4 ft of water on the beach.   Capt. Papa D was white knuckled.  Good luck to everyone, be safe and have fun!!

"Long Day" | OIFC | 06/23/14
 

Got started early this morning and launched at Cypremort State Park about 100 miles east of where the tournament will be held.  I had stuided an area on Google Earth called Marsh Island that "looked" good.  I ran about 10 miles to the first area I had identified and started fishing.  As soon as I set up I noticed the abundance of alligators in the area.  I bet I saw 300 gators today.  The gators head is all you can see when it's in the water.  You know it's a big one when the distance from the snout to the eyeballs is about a 3 wood.  I wasn't seeing any fish and got to thinking, hmm wonder what the salinity is like.  I took a handful of water, swished it arround and yep sweet fresh water.  Talk about being in left field. 

I started moving through the marsh towards the Gulf trying to find the right area where a redfish could potentially live.  This area of Louisiana is proving to be the biggest challenge yet for me.  It's shallow every where, hard to find saltwater, gates shutting off access to most of the ponds and subsurface debris scattered at every turn.  Top that off with 14 foot alligators swimming around the boat and it adds an element of stress when running 40mph through a bayou with a rooster tail of mud shooting 30 feet in the air behind you.  Fun, fun, fun. 

Eventually I did stumble across some fish today and they were a pretty good class.  The problem was they were not very cooperative.  I was able to get them to bite but it took time.  Time I don't have when making a 100 mile run in the tournament.  I also found out later there are two draw bridges and a set of locks between tournament check out and where I fished today.  Unless I can run the outside, it looks like that run may not be doable.  I have two more days to look around and find a more reliable plan. 

This evening I trailered over to Lake Charles and will hit the water in the morning closer to check out.  My understanding is this area is totally different than what I've experienced thus far.  I'll be fishing jetties and open water under birds in Lake Calcasieu.  Looks like I'm starting from scratch in this event.

"Back on the Road" | OIFC | 06/22/14
 

Just as things spark off in the king mackerel world at home, it's time for me to hit the road again.  This time I'm down in Lake Charles, LA (basically Texas) for the final regular season event of the HT Elite redfish series.  I'm now on my 3rd HT redfish tournament and I'm hopeful the gained experience will equal a more positive result in this event.  I've never been to this area of Louisiana and once again am clueless about where to start.  I have Monday, Tuesday and half day Wednesday to try and learn the area and find the right redfish.  The weather is good right now but the forecast doesn't look good for the tournament on Thursday and Friday- typical.  I've decided to stop short of Lake Charles and pre fish back to the east about 100 miles tomorrow.  Depending on what I find I will likely head over to Lake Charles on Tuesday and try to find something a little closer to check out.  A goal for this season for me was to qualify for the chamipionship event in March.  With a reasonable finish I should be in there.  Anything can happen but I'm ready to put it all together and make a showing.  Hopefully I'll get this redfish thing out of my system for a while after this one and get back to work chasing a slimy king mackerel.  In the meantime, good luck to all those prepping for the Jolly Mon.  The timing couldn't be better.
