Joey’s Big Trout


Quality not quantity was Joey’s motto ! Nice 25.5″ (5.5lb) Big Lake Speck

Saturday July 26, 2008 Joey S & Friends, A Great Day On Lake Calcasieu!!!


Joey S. of  Houston invited several of his business associates and their families for a great day of Fishing on Big Lake. Judy started the day with a 2# Redfish on the very first cast, on a live shrimp. It was all Judy most of the day she gave the guys a lesson on catching Trout, Redfish & Flounder. Joey went for quality instead of numbers and finished with a nice 25.5″ (5.5lb) Trout. The fish were fairly active and the last cast of the day hooked a flounder that shook the hook on the way in and gave us something to look forward too next trip.

Saturday 7/19/2008 saw an early (3:30am) Start For Marcy, Ron, & Adrene on their 2nd trip to Lake Calcasieu with Captain Tom. After a bumpy boat ride to a beautiful sunrise it was  a little work to get the fish to start biting. The tide was slow to none early but we put 5 Trout & 1 Pompano in the cooler at the 1st stop and 5 Nice Trout and  Marcy hooked and landed a 25# Drum. at the 3rd stop I hooked an 8# Tripletail  and had him 1/2 in the net and lost him)&^%$#@ a few choice words later Ron hooked and landed a 23″ Speck that was also a challange to get in the net, but patiance paid off and he’ll be dinner for 4. To finish a great day we moved inside the jetties and Adrene added some Flounder to the cooler for a great finish to their Big Lake Adventure.
