We actually have been out a couple of times in the last few weeks. Not one of our trips have crossed the state line into LA waters. All of our trips have focused on fishing the reefs and bridges in MS waters for sheepshead, blackdrum, with a few random reds, trout and flounder. Had a good little run with the live shrimp, but that well has run dry. We have been using the dead shrimp, and it will get the job done in a pinch. Using Okuma spinning reels(RTX, V's, Helios, and Trio's) spooled with 20-30lb braid tied to 1/2 ounce sinker on a carolina rig or dropper loop rig. Have not heard much from the trout trollers in the river about catching fish. Come to think of it, I have never heard a trout troller tell me they are catching fish. Very tight lipped group, but my hat goes off to those cold weather die hards. I am sure they are hit and miss with this warm/cold weather we have been having. Been getting calls about Spring Break. We still have days available if anyone wants to take the youngsters while they are out of school. Last year we were blessed with nice weather the entire week of Spring Break and tore up the fish, hope we get a repeat this year...

When we have not been fishing or hunting, we have been on the road attending seminars. Was invited to be a part of seminar hosted by the Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association(www.mbkfa.com) in Spanish Fort, AL. Could not have been a nicer more accomodating group of men and women. I will try to let everyone know if this group ever meets again. Yes, Shore Thing Charters offers kayak fishing trips, but these guys and gals kayaks were trully works of art. I learned more about properly rigging out a fishing kayak there in half of day than I have learned in years of trial an error. Look em up if you need any info about kayaks, those folks are good people. Hoping to have them over here this year to fish the LA marsh out of their kayaks.
Capt Kenny an I got a chance to run up to Hattiesburg, MS for a get together hosted by the CCA Pine Belt Chapter. John "Fish Head" Marquez was nice enough to have us speak to the group about inshore fishing. Was glad to see my friends Capt Scott Sullivan and Capt Rimmer Covington were there to talk about offshore fishing. Just a good time talking fishing with some good folks. They are gonna be having another one of these shindigs in the coming weeks up in Jackson, MS if anyone wants to get in on it.
