Bachelor Parties, Mardi Gras, and plenty of fun fishing!!!

 

 
We at Shore Thing Thing Charters hope everyone is having a safe and Happy Mardi Gras. We have been able to get a few days, and the fishing has been fun. Earlier in the week, I was able to take a nice young fellow and his buddy down to the marsh. The fog made our day much longer. We had to wait for the fog to lift and come in early to avoid it in the afternoon. Jonathan Summers and his friend Landis were able get in on some fantastic red fishing down in the duck ponds. Finally got to see the big packs of reds. We literally had fish swimming all around the boat. We only fished one shore line and we could see the fog rolling back in. We tucked tail and ran. Still got the boys plenty of reds and had an absolute blast with these two whippa snappa's.
Like most February's, we have spent most of our days playing nearshore, in MS Waters. Capt Jimmy Ray an I were able to get the Owen Bachelor party off the dock, TWICE! These boys have been with us several times over the years. They were actually on the best flounder trip in Shore Thing History. Well, we tried to go to the marsh out of our dock in Bayou Caddy. The winds kicked up, way up and we made it about half a mile out. The commercial crabbers were even turning around, so we had to think fast. Since the bachelor party boys had already started having "big boy drinks", we had to move the party. We put the boats on the trailers. Had our own make shift Mardi Gras parade, and ran across town to the Bay. With the east winds, we were able to fish calm water, all day long. Capt Matt crews rescheduled, so he jumped in the boat with Capt Jimmy. Two chaperons were actually needed on that boat. Turned out to be a nice save. The Bay had enough black drum, sheepshead, and small flounders to keep us entertained. It was a long day, having to move the party, but we made it work.   
Sunday I had my new buddy, Tom Jackson and his son Eli out for a quick near shore trip. We left late to take advantage of the warm temps and moving tide. The last few trips, we have been able to use live shrimp, but all we could get was dead. The bite was still good in the Bay. We had a nice mess of sheepshead, and made it back in time to watch the Super Bowl. The water has been in the low 50's, so the bite has been very soft. The braided line is a must.
