5-23-12 Report

3 days of fishing and all the boats have been running and catching. Been having some wind in the morning, but getting it done on the trout, reds and the triple tail. We have either been checked on seen the MDWF Agents on the water every day, so make sure you have the right licenses and fish on the boat. On with the fishing report... Monday I had Bill Miller and friends for a windy morning. We looked for clean, calm water until Capt Kenny called us in on a trout bite. He was finishing up his 2 person LA limit for the Whitfield couple. We got on the fish, but not quite as good as the other boat. Did get close to 30 keeper trout using live shrimp under the popping cork, and carolina rig. Wind dropped out and we went after the triple tail. Saw plenty of those, even saw a pack of 4 fish swimming around in open water, guess there were up to monkey business? We got 4 before calling it a day.Kenny and the Whitfield crew got 50 speckled trout and 6 triple tail! Tuesday was a cool trip, got to work out of Pass Christian. Mac Delaup owner of the Walk and Wade wade fishing belts, as well as Cast-a-Way rods invited us to come work a trip. Mac had hired several local charter captains(McHugh,Malini, Bryan, and Dubison) to accommodate a large group of wade fisherman. Seems the day before, Capt Jeremy with Still Water, put them waders on some good trout. The guys did not ask me where we were going, they actually told me exactly where they would be getting dropped off. The customer is always right... The boys jumped out to wade fish Cat Island with top water baits all morning long. Cat Island is just a fun place to fish, in or out of the water. Days are wearing on me and I knew if I got in the water I would be exhausted for the next day. I stayed in the boat and got my 15 fish MS limit on live shrimp under the popping cork. Mac and the rest of the boys did well with the big trout. Some of the trout on their stringers were pushing 5 pounds! Several times I had wade fisherman close enough to hear the twitch, twitch of the top water baits and then the KACHOOOWAH, as a big trout would inhale the bait. Talked Mac, his son and buddy Adam into running to look for some triple tail. We saw 4, hooked 3 but boated NONE. Bobby Lamb from Atlantic Marine gave us the lay up on one of the fish. He was out of live shrimp and was happy to point to us to one. Thanks Bobby. Honestly have no clue what our other 3 boats did because I ran out of the Pass. We hit the dock with 40 something of some rather large trout, the other boat captains had a pile of fish heads at the cleaning tables near Shaggy's as well. From what the boys in the water told me, the baits of choice were Super Spooks and Top Dogs(blue and chrome or black and chrome). I just paid too much money for my boat to get out of it... I do know that today all 4 of the Shore Thing Boats hit the dock with big payloads of trout and triple tail. Nice and calm all morning long, water was clean and bait was thick. I fished the shell bottoms with the Vollenweider crew. Robert, Stacey, Corey and Coreys paw-in-law Boyce were in the fish from start to finish. Corey helped me run the deck as fish were flying over the side and most needed to be netted. We would bait rods, cast, net or re-rig as fast as two people could. The adults became the kids today, and we spoiled them. Looks like those big jumping shrimp are here, and the big trout were punishing them. The crew got 54 fat trout in the box when the wind completely dropped out, the tide stopped and it got hot. Talked the crew into going to look for triple tail(good call). We saw 13, caught 7 and tagged 3! This crew won this trip at Toast to the Coast(Coast Episcopal School) and were much deserving on a good haul of fish. I got done a little early, but The Mighty Capt Matt was hitting the dock with the Al Shiyou(no relation) crew, party of two. They stomped the big trout yet again, and were all grins. He said he fished close to Capt Kenny and Capt Kyle. Seems those to two boats landed on the trout and triple tail(big fish/big numbers) as well. Just a good day to be on the water.
