Time to recap 2014, and while it doesn’t seem very eventful when I think back, I know that significant events happened. This will be brief, and mostly photos:
The year started off with a quick trip that Karl and I made to Isle De Jean Charles. It was cold and I was sick with stomach issues. But these two fish still made the day better.
Again, at Isle De Jean Charles with Karl and Trey, though this trip was not near as productive. With freezing temperatures the previous few days, fish were hard to find! “Some days treat you, some days teach you”
Yet again, Isle De Jean Charles. This time with Karl and Mark. I brought in one red that day, that we had Mark pose with because he still hadn’t caught a red in a kayak (and still hasn’t).
The trips started picking up in April. With the cold weather starting to back off, the warmth was very welcoming. I hit Grand Avoille Cove with Mark and Andrew. It was a good fun trip with lots of sunfish. Always fun!
I took my sister, Anna, out on her first kayaking trip, and then caught this baby bull red on the last trip of the month!
I became a dad!
I focused a little bit more of freshwater in July. Taking trips with Karl and Elton in a bass boat, to catching bass on frogs in the kayak!
I also joined the FINS Braided Line Team in July!
More redfish trips in August, one of which claimed my prescription glasses. I have now welcomed contacts to my life!
And lastly, I became a team member with Breathe Like A Fish performance shirts in October!
I made my first trip out west with friends; Scott, Stephen, and John. West Louisiana, that is! It was supposed to be a trout trip but due to unexpected winds, we ended up tucking into the marsh and catching reds instead.
I have a small set of goals to reach in 2015. I’ll leave those to myself for now, but I’m hoping to catch many more species than just redfish!
Now, here’s to 2014, but to looking ahead to what’s coming in 2015!
