Playing Catch-Up

The fishing has been kind of slow on my end. Not saying that the fish hadn’t been biting, but that my trips to the Houma marshes have been a bit “few and far between”. Not too long after the Redbone tournament, I returned to PAC to do some scouting but didn’t do too well. Only catching one red and not seeing much else.

A few weeks later I headed to my honey-hole in Cocodrie but only found muddish water and wind. I did manage two redfish but that was it.

Lone PAC Redfish ate a new “Click-bait Shrimp” by Buggs Lures.

At the beginning of June I helped guide a trip for Pack & Paddle with Butch Ridgedell, a friend of ours at P&P and a Hobie Team Member. We led a pretty relaxed crew which included Chris Holmes from Louisiana Sportsman, and a small crew from WAFB who were gathering footage for a story they’ll be doing.

We had high hopes, and most people caught fish, but those few were mostly small and throwbacks. Though Butch and I both tried to get the guys to throw top-waters, they mostly threw popping corks and soaked market bait. Not my preferred style, but hey, they caught fish!

Ready to head to PAC!
Customers get their kayaks set up. P&P provides kayaks for guided trips as well as rod & reel combos.


More of my time, however, has been spent with my buddy. We’ve been hitting up the local ditches and bank spots. We’ve been “tearing up” the bream.

For now, at least, that’s where we’re at. I’m hoping to make another trip to PAC later this week, so we’ll see. Good luck!
