Wednesday afternoon Reds on the Beach (5/16/2008)
[Shell Beach,LA] I had the pleasure of fishing with Greg and Dian Cooke of Harley Davidson of New Orleans. They had a great time and put together a nice box of fish.
Banged the Trout Tuesday on the Beach (5/16/2008)
[Shell Beach,LA] The Trout were slamming the cast net caught live shrimp we had and it was a blast. By this time the wind was howling and it made for a slow ride back with a box full of 75 big Trout who cared.

[Shell Beach,LA] A couple of late windy reports from the beach.Day one ended up with 15 Trout, 10 Reds, and 2 Heads. Fun group of guys that great time.Day two ended up with 37 Trout and fun day on the water.
Pretty day but rough winds Saturday on the Beach (4/27/2008)

Back for seconds on the Beach (4/22/2008)
[Shell Beach,LA] The bite was not quite as fast, but the Trout were a little bigger on average. Once again the Hybrid Flurry 3� under a cork was the bait of the day, but several good fish fell for the LSU Bayou Chub also. After we finished off our Trout limits we made a move and got on an as fast as you could cast Sheepshead bite.
Trout slam Sunday on the Beach (4/22/2008)
[Shell Beach,LA] Right from the start they were putting some pretty Trout in the boat with Hybrid Flurry 3� under a cork. I joined in on the fun and by 10am we put our limits of Trout (14�-22�) on ice along with a couple of Reds.
Windy day on the Beach today (4/04/2008)
[Shell Beach,LA] We jumped on over towards Oak River and got on a good Trout bite near Point Finne. Bayou Chubs under a cork did the trick. The bite did not last for long and stopped when the tide stopped, but it was fun while it lasted.
Fun weekend of fishing on the Beach (4/02/2008)
[Shell Beach,LA] We headed down the foggy MRGO out into the Sound. We headed to a rig that I fished the day before and the Sheepshead and I mean big ones were eating up on dead shrimp on a jig head.
Fast action and drags screaming on the Beach Friday (3/31/2008)
[Shell Beach,LA] I could hardly keep up with netting the fish. Finally they could not take anymore. Good thing because I think we could have sunk the boat with those big hungry Heads.
Fun weekend at the Beach - Black Bay Fishing Report (3/04/2008)
