Sunday March 30,2008 Gary A., Son Carson,and friend David B. Hook a nice Stringer


Gary A. of Shreveport, his son Carson and friend David B. Made the 3 hour drive down from Shreveport to catch some nice BigLake Trout. With a few Detours caused by the weather( it was more like July than March with some nasty storms around) they still managed to boat several Trout in the 3# range ( Gary’s were closer to 4 he swears) and added some Reds and Flounder to finish the day with two Big Lake Grand Slams.

March 28,2008 Randy & Gene from Houston Catch some Big Lake Action


On Friday March 28 Randy W. and his longtime fishing partner  Gene made the 2 hour trip from Houston over to Lake Calcasieu to get in on some Spring action. And in between their cutting up and stories (and the fact that Gene tried to throw his rod overboard)we actually found time to catch some good fish.

03/26/2008 The Captain Goes Scouting and Catches Spring (Fish) Fever


I went Scouting today and the wind made it a challange but inspight of 15 to 20mph winds and off color water I still maneged 29 nice Fish. Trout, Reds, and Flounder came on curly tail Gulp under a Cajun Thunder Cork. I kept these 12 for the grill. The full Moon this weekend started the spring shrimp run and the trout are hot on their tails.  To get in on some great Spring Fishing call me at 318-675-9114  I’m still holding my Boatshow special of $450. for three guests and FREE LODGING.  fishingtom@gmail.com

3/21/08 4# Trout, Bright Spot on Tough Day


Sam D. , and freinds Gene and John made the trip from Houston. We started the day with a lot of bites but mostly 12 to 15″ Reds and Flounder. Gulp under a cork put a couple of 3# reds in the box and a live mullet got John a battle with a nice 4# speck which gave me a chance to show off my netting skills. After a couple more smaller trout and we sought shelter from the 15+mph winds in the marsh and using dead shrimp  got some good Reds to Bite. Unfortunately the bigger Reds won most of the battles and left our tackle in shambles some of it still floating in the marsh.

3/16/2008 George G. of Houston Makes his 2nd trip this year .


George G. of Houston made his second trip of the spring to join Captain Tom on his 24′ Triton for an enjoyable day on Big Lake. With 15 to 20mph winds that 24ft boat came in handy and so did Georges computerized Shimano Reel. It handled the wind and the fish with ease. We managed 7 reds 5 flounder and 2 trout for the second Big Lake Grande Slam this week. George said he’ll be back for trip #3 next month.

Thanks, Captain Tom.
