Sheep Fest and Spring is right around the corner!!!

The boys have been chomping at the bit to get on the water. The usual crazy March weather has kept everyone on their toes. One day it is sunshine and 70 degrees, the next pouring rain, and the next day 30 degrees. Good news is that it will not be much longer before constant shorts and flip flop weather. On the days the weather has been decent, the near shore fishing has been great!
Me and Capt Alex were up in Washington DC last week, meeting with MS Congressmen and Senators on a few fisheries issues. All the offices we visited were very nice. Congressmen Palazzo and Harper even ran up from the voting floor to say hello. Always fun up there, but there is no place like home...
With the winter ending weather and the exceptional fishing in close, the boys have had some incredible trip recently. Capt Kenny ran the Stanley crew on a near shore trip this week. From the looks of the pictures, they stayed pretty darn busy on the sheepshead. These tasty critters should be thick for a little while longer, before the black drum and reds take over. The trout will not be far behind them. However, on the chilly, windy, rough days there is nothing better than staying in close and working on those fish.
Capt Tom had the Crosby Crew all the way in from Kansas. They literally had a boat load of "Bay Snappers" aka sheepshead. Not ones to pass up a good time, Team Weems (Milton, Harriet, and Nancy) hopped on for a last minute sheephead slaughter this week. Tom said they could have caught them all day long, but the bait supply was devoured and the ladies were ready for some land based activities. A couple of hours and they were full to the brim with sheeps.
The weather is our biggest hurdle this month. If it is bad, we don't go but when it is fishable we fish. March and April has some of the best near shore fishing of the year. With Spring Break starting, and the kids out of school, this is a great trip for them. Plenty of action, short rides and plenty of eaters. If we get a nice weather day, we can always run to the LA Marsh too. The Spring calendar has been filling up. Looks like we will have boats out at the Cat Island House for most of May and June. The regulars have been snatching up the LA Marsh trips everyday. If anyone wants to reserve a boat(s) for those prime weekend dates, please don't wait too long. For the last few years, we have had all of our boats booked nearly everyday from late April to August. Several of the weekends in May are already full. No pressure, but please don't wait till the last minute (especially large groups). If we can help set something up or if yall need more info, feel free to call, text or email. Thanks
