|"TEAM ESCAPE" had a liesurely and fun day yesterday as my son joined me for a trip to the marshes in search of reds mainly for our local churches' St. Joseph Altar. Trout weren't totally out of the question as we headed for the marshes around Shell Beach. The tide was very low as we approached the shoreline and in the marsh and I knew that the spots that we wanted to catch reds were to shallow to try so I decided to let the East wind do its' job and bring the water up into the ponds and then head in. I decided to try and work the shoreline of the lake titelining H&H root beer curly tails and we had some nice 2 lb. trout take our offerings as we were working out from the shoreline about 50 yards and throwing in and out using a steady retrieve. We spent about 2 hours and picked up 24 trout but now it was time to head into the marsh for a little more tug on our lines as the water had come up enough to get into the ponds. We tied on H&H gold weedless spoons and worked the irregular shorelines in 3 different ponds and landed 7 nice reds for the St. Josephs Altar. The red bite was not a vicious strike, but instead it was a soft pickup and they would just swim off with the spoon but then hold on because when you set the hook the battle was on as they broke water and churned up the muddy bottom and ran all around the boat. All and all it was a great day on the water as I got to spend it with my son, was able to help out my church and caught some fish to. ANOTHER GREAT DAY IN THE BLAZER BAY.
CHALLENGER RODS AND H&H BAITS HAULED THEM IN AGAIN
If you wanted to get in on some great S.E. Louisiana Springtime action, give us a call.
