Cindy Sloan, Jerry Levens, Jerry Favre, Jimmy Stoked Trace Favre and I started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou heading out to BLACK BAY FOR TROPHY TROUT!!!
This was a day to watch the weather, I was on the cell talking to Karren trying to find out which direction the storm was heading. It was from Venice to lake Borne when she told me it was heading south east in which was right for us I hung up and told Captain Gene who was also on some 3lb Speckled Trout LETS GET OUT OF HERE!!!
We pulled up the Cajun Spear and put on the rain gear and headed in.
It was 20 minutes and you could feel the colder air about 15 degrees colder and packing 30+ miles per hour wind.
We left just in time if we would have waited any longer we would have had 5’ waves, bad enough we got a wet!!!!
It hard to leave when we were on 3+ lb fish, but were glad to get in just look at the wind and rain in the pictures.
With a total of 63 trout they were very happy and still had a great time, one that they will not forget!!!

The rest of the pictures!!!

Phil Orgeron, Bill, Henry and I started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou and wanted to catch some Trophy Trout in Black Bay. The wind was out of the south and about 20+ miles per hour. The water was getting muddy making the bite slow.  We caught some on the rigs then moved to the Islands for the BIG GIRLS.

Henry was thinking about buying a boat and was checking out my setup.
After fishing I think he liked the Idea no fish to clean, no boat to clean, no boat to gas up etc. You get the Idea.

We ended up fishing on some of Captain Phil’s Hot spots and caught some real nice fish. Thanks again for sharing some great fishing spots!!!

We spent some time checking out some pink spoonbills check out the great pictures of them.

Bill was fighting a Black Drum in shallow, great fun!!!

Fished on the birds but the trout were small.  We moved on to bigger and better trout.

On the way in Henry was driving checking out the power of my new 225 HONDA!!!

Daymond Nunez, Marsert Tervillion, T.J. Tervillion, Carrie Callahan from Markville and I started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou heading out to BLACK BAY FOR SOME TROPHY TROUT but as soon as we arrived the winds picked up to 25+ MILES PER HOUR.  With 4’+ waves and muddy water we fished for a few minutes but no bites.  We left for the marsh. We were getting soaked from head to toe, from the white caps, hitting the waves broad sided. This was fun for the girls they were just laughing and have a good time. WE WERE GETTING A WET #@%. “GIRLS JUST WANTA HAVE FUN!!!”

After about 2.5 hour boat ride we got one fat Southern Flounder and started on the GOLDEN SPECKLED TROUT!!! By this time the girls were being COOKED with MOJO HOT SAUCE SUN TANNING LOATION.

These girls even baited and cast out their own lines ARSOME!!!
JUST GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!

We ended up with ten Golden Trout and two Southern Flounder not a bad day for all of the wind and muddy water.

Daymond Nunez last trip out with me was 2 BULL DRUMS ONE WEIGHT 39LBS ANOTHER 33LBS. AND 6 BULL REDS!!! + Other fish. I was trying to keep a low profile because of other boats in the area but these DUDES!!! KEPT ON SCREAMING, “GET DA NET!!!” “GET DA NET!!!” “GET DA NET!!!”
