TONS OF PICTURES!!!! Cat Island and Day Trips Catching plenty of trout, reds, flounder and triple tails.












 
Just seems to keep getting better and better! The day trips have been making a big showing in the trout and triple tail departments. On the halfway decent weather days, the trout fishing down south in the LA Marsh has been stellar. The way things have been going, it might be a good idea to buy some stock in Ziploc. Live bait helps most days, but once we find the trout, we have been switching quickly over to Matrix soft plastics and Boat Monkey popping corks. I guess if your buying stock, those two companies might not be bad ones to invest in as well...
Capt Kenny, myself and Chef Frank have spent the last couple of days out at the Cat Island House with the Rose crew. We even picked up a birthday cake and celebrated two of the boys birthday after our shrimp and crab boil.  Believe it or not, two of the 6 people were guides from Indian River, FL. They wanted to sample our area and we did plenty of sampling. Guess we made an impression, they were ready to rebook when we got to back to land this morning. These boys could fish, and they were very disciplined. Capt George and Capt Billy wanted to catch red fish on topwater, so for two days, that's what we did. They were like trained snipers with their spinning rods and Rapala Skitter Walks. I had them the first afternoon and they put on quite a show. I think we went 3 for like 8 on the topwater red fish thing, but they never broke rank. Tell you how serious these guys were. Capt Kenny had the other crew, murderizing the trout. When we all set up to fish, Capt Matt texted us where he had caught 100 trout that morning with the Kermit Broom crew. Kenny and his boat went straight to work on them. They kept us updated every few minutes, saying "got 20 on the floor", "that's about 40", "every cast Sonny", "coming up on a 100". We called them on the radio literally as number 100 was coming over the side. My guys just smiled as if to say, "good for them"! They catch plenty of massive trout in Indian River Lagoon, but what they really wanted was to see those big bulls inhale their top water baits. Through pinpoint casting and persistence, they got what they wanted.
The next morning, while drifting around Cat Island, their skitter walks and mirrodines were getting whacked every single cast by keeper trout. With their eyes on the prize, they politely said, "there is nothing but trout here, can we get away from these and find some reds". Very driven guys is all I can say. We left an every cast keeper trout topwater bite, but we did find more of their reds. The explosions that those big reds produced were heart stopping.
The last afternoon, we asked the group if they wanted to tangle with the drum and reds close to the main land. Think they had more fun with that than anything. Several of the guys actually suffered injuries from reeling in the big sea monster black drum and big reds. It was nothing a few ibuprofens and a cold beer couldn't fix on the calm ride back to the island. 
Due to bad weather we had to call our trip early. Had to call in the favor of favors from some good customers of ours. Luckily Billy and Nathan Guice with Guice Offshore had a 42 foot Gaudet deck boat in Long Beach. One call to our old buddy Capt Daniel "D-Rob" Robinson and we were able to get our customers off the island safe and dry. Capt "D-Rob" and Guice Offshore, literally saved the day for us. You Rock GO, THANK YOU!!!!
Big shout out to Capt Alex McIngvale and his triple tail tagging efforts the last couple days. Alex and his crews have been going through tag books like its no body's business. Its always fun to tag those smaller fish early in the season to see how big they get and where they go.
