Green Trout (Bass)

Just to chance things up a little, we ventured off to waters with a little less salinity. We found a pot of green gold. The Bass were everywhere and hungry. We boxed a 5-man limit of Bass. Nonstop action!

Sacks of Specks

The Lake Charles weather was beautiful and the fish were hungry. These guys had a great time and went home with full sacks of Specks.

Longtime Friends

Mitch and Pat have been longtime friends with many adventures together. I was privileged to hear about their hunting and fishing adventures and other stories that will never leave the boat. This is one of the things I love about my job.

Many of the Fishing Tom family of customers request the total package. This is fishing, lodging at our beautiful place and meals. Please check out the picture of our place and the meals that we offer. Then your next trip to Lake Calcasieu can be the total package like Shawn and David had.

3 Generations Fishing Together

This family came together to Hackberry to introduce their next generation to Saltwater fishing. Riley caught his first saltwater fish. He loved the fight of the Redfish and can’t wait to come back and do it again.

Luck or Skill

As you know, I stay booked up taking all of you out on amazing fishing adventures. However, when I get a couple days off, Christy wants to have fun catching fish just like everyone else. I don’t know if its luck or skill, but every time she goes out with me, she always catches really big fish.

A couple days ago she said I want to go catch a big trout like I did last year. Last year she caught her personal best 25-inch trout. Sept. 10. So, we head out that morning, we pull up to the first spot. We start to catch some small trout. Then, I promise she had made no more than 12 casts. She says, ” baby I got a good one, get the net. So, I hurry to get the net while she wrestles with the fish. I said, is it a red or a speck? she said I pretty sure it’s a trout. I said ok let’s land it.

It was definitely a speck. Very close to her PB she lands this beautiful 24-inch Speck. Luck or Skill? You decide.
