Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

The first part of last week kept us at the dock. The cold front that rolled through, had the winds up near 30mph. Needless to say, we rescheduled or canceled all of our trips in hopes of better weather. By Wednesday, we had enough wiggle room to get out, and fish on some near shore trips. Capt Kenny and I had the Middleton Group out for a fun one. We fished from one end of the coast to the other. The NW winds were blocked from the land and we found fish at most stops. Very few trout, but we got plenty of sheepshead, drum, along with a few slot and rat reds. Big fish of day, that is still being argued, was a massive Jack Crevalle. He was on my boat, but Kennys boat said it had to be an eater. No one told us, but since Mr Mark was gonna buy dinner either way, we just called it a draw.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we got some nice weather and great fishing. Plenty of the Shore Thing regulars have been getting in on the great fall bite. Milton, Harriet and Fancy Nancy have been back down. Blaise Ernst with Lincoln Finacial has enjoyed some fun with clients and friends. Harlen Massey is getting in on it before hunting season. Even AJ Jackson and Madeline Tonti have come back for fall trips.
The two boat Middleton crew along with 3 other crews were out Thursday for a good ole fashion skull dragging. The LA Marsh was alive with bait jumpin, birds diving, and trout feeding. Two of the guys in my boat had never caught big bull reds. Got to check that one off the bucket list several times before the end of the day. Our boat and Capt Kennys boat stumbled into big schools of huge bulls in separate areas of the marsh. We had the bulls doing laps around the boat, it was something to see. All the boats came in mixed bags of trout and most had close to 40 specks and many whites. The reds and black drum were mixed in the boxes as well.
The Palmer crew from Hattiesburg, I had on Friday, was long overdue for a good trip. Me and Mr Mike have been weathered out 4 or 5 times over the past year. Finally got it right, on the weather and the fishing. Trout bite was steady most of the day, and we did go looking for looking for some reds. Snuck in one small lagoon and grabbed plenty slot sized reds. When we were leaving the drain that brought us in there, the mouth of it was packed full of huge black drum. Broke off a few, but landed 4 sea monsters for the photo and release. Capt Jimmy Ray, fishing with Mr Harlen Massey came over to join the fun too. They even found a few bull reds on the outside of the school.
Capt Alex had the hot hand on Saturday and did very well on the sparkle trout. Fishing in 3 foot of water, over shells, he got 50 good trout for the Zinger crew. They even had time to go catch some reds back in the ponds. Capt Tom put a hurting on the whites and specks with the Nettles boys, it was impressive. Capt Matt was getting done as well with the Jackson crew. I was a few minutes late to all the trout rallies these guys were on. Was able to get David and Matthew Hathorn a few, but it was painful to be on the tail end of the bites. Had to clean it up on the red fish. Was able to take them sight fishing for slot reds, and it was awesome. Took the gloves off, and just used bare 3/8 ounce jig heads with live finger mullet. Must have seen close to 40 fish and we missed our fair share. Did have a nice rally though, those fish were hungry. If you got that mullet anywhere near them, they charged it and inhaled them.
Saturday, we saw more boats than we have seen in months, out in the LA Marsh. Most everyone played nice, but we did have a few boats not playing well with others. None of us own the water, or the fish out there, and there is no reason why we cant share the bounty. Capt Tom literally almost got run over by a boat while he was on anchor. He said the Capt must have been on auto-pilot because he never saw him waving at him when he passed 20 feet from him(full throttle). A few of the other boats had other boaters come in hot and roll them in shallow water, while on fish, shutting down bites. Drift in or use the trolling motor if you can. Running the big motor or throwing a big wake in shallow water will almost always scatter a school of fish/bait. Also, when leaving an area with other boats fishing and or catching, drift out, trolling motor out, or if necessary, idle out. There are plenty of fish and places to fish out there. Please be courteous to others, stepping down from the soap box...
The bites have been pretty good and we have been using two main things. Boat Monkey Popping corks to find the schooling fish, and double rigs to crank out the numbers. The Matrix soft plastics have been our go to baits. Color has not been much of a factor on the trout. I was standing on the dock on the other morning looking at the other boats tackle. The colors I saw were pearl, chartreuse, black, pink, motor oil and clear. Not so much what color what you throwing on these bites, but where you are throwing them. For the red fish, the same popping cork rig is used. Either tip the soft plastic with dead shrimp or take the soft plastic off and put on a live shrimp or finger mullet. Strike King Red Fish Spinner Baits have been doing well too.
Gotta thank a few folks for letting Shore Thing come speak at events this past Thursday evening. Big Thank You to the whole gang at the Gulf Coast Research Lab in Ocean Springs, MS. This is the third seminar(Catch More Fish With Science) that we have been a part of this year. Extremely informative talks from the scientist at the lab, and we of course get to talk about fishing.
Also got to spend a very windy Tuesday at Coast Episcopal Elementary in Pass Christian, MS. Since our talk in the 1st Grade  class was so well received, we got invited to my daughters Pre-K class for F week(FISH). With the help of my 5 year old daughter, we kept 30 something youngsters captivated with pictures and stories of fish we catch in the Gulf of Mexico. Great day off the water...
Still got boats open most days, if anyone wants to go fishing. Big groups and small groups welcome.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

One of the biggest hauls of the year happened this past weekend. While Captains Matt, Kenny, Alex, Tom and Jimmy Ray were rolling through the LA Marsh, they found something good. Over some oyster reefs, there was a few shrimp jumping and birds working. Underneath that commotion, was a wide freaking open trout bite. The boys quickly rigged up double rigs and let the chaos begin. Better than half the bite was big white trout, but hey "white trout is betta dan no trout". They did have some good sized speckled trout mixed in, but the big whites were so thick you seldom got through them. They said it was about 70/30 mix on big whites and keeper speckled trout. Weird, but good was the fact that almost no cat fish were caught.

I was working a near shore trip with Trent and Crystal Clark from Wetumpka, AL. They were celebrating there anniversary, and got picture perfect weather all morning. They did fantastic on the slot reds, flounder, puppy drum and white trout. Last fish of the day for them, was a 40 inch bull red. I thought Mrs Crystal was gonna kiss her husband to death, she was soo happy.

While I was finishing up at the cleaning tables, the trout slayers began returning to the dock. It was impressive to say the least. They all had ice chest, baskets, and buckets full of whites and specks. Several of the boats even grabbed a few slot reds and flounder, before heading in. It was great to see the trout on the dock, better late than never...

Capt Kenny and I, got to run back out in the afternoon. Italian/American movie star, Franco Nero was in town with some musicians and wanted to fish. Our pal, John Scialdone was nice enough to get everyone to the dock for a near shore trip. The wind and seas picked up, so we just fished the reefs. Some of the guys did not speak English well, but they knew to set the hooks and reel. Most if not all of the fish we caught, did not swim in the Mediterranean, so they were loving it. Kenny and Franco have fished together several times, and they now work very well together. We got to fish next to them the last hour or so. They were slinging drum, specks, reds and sheepshead over the side. They kept a good pile of fish for dinner they were planning later that evening.

Couple of hours of shut eye and then we were back at it for Sunday. We had 6 boats out and they all went in search of the trout. First part of the morning, we had all six boats working the same area. Everyone idled in and used the trolling motors to set up, and ALL the boats were hammering the fish. It was glass calm and very still, so you could see and hear everything. Very cool to hear the Boat Monkey Corks rattling, people cheering and fish flopping from that many boats. We all kind of spread out, and found our own schools of fish. I was fishing with one of my favorite families, the Striblings. Charles and Mr John were having a ball with the every cast bite. Like always, it became a competition, but this go round, Mr John was taking first prize. Charles did much better on the keeper trout, but Mr John crushed him on the numbers. All of the boats had to pump the brakes on the slaughter, and it was tough to leave em biting. Everyone went looking for bigger trout and or reds. I know Capt Matt had 6 slot reds, to top off his fish box.

We were first back to the dock, and we got to see the full loads come off the boats. Plenty of smiles, cold beverages and photos were shared at the Shore Thing Dock in Bayou Caddy. Some of the bigger came crews returned with 150 fish!!!

When I got back through the gates at The Boat House in Lakeshore, MS, the offshore boys had returned with some amazing fish. Our friends, Sid Leblanc and Dr Mack Murphy had some fresh sashimi on the cleaning table from the black fin and yellow fin tuna they had caught. They even had some barrel fish from deep dropping. The show stoppers, were the massive escolars they caught in 1,000 feet of water. Escolars, aka "oilfish" are prehistoric looking. They have huge reflective eyes, skin like a lizard, and teeth like a shark. You never know what you are gonna get when you come through those gates at The Boat House, but it is always interesting. Membership has its privileges...

Tuesday, we will NOT be hosting our Soldiers Angels/Wounded Warriors Fishing Fun Day due to inhospitable weather. We will be moving our outing to Tue November 11th. Its a bit of an inconvenience, but we wanna try and get our men and women of the armed service out fishing in the best weather we can.

When this cold front passes through, we will be right back on the water. The Shore Guides are now like kids in candy stores with the much improved bite. It seems as though our predictions of a banner fall may be coming true. We will be very busy in the coming weeks, but we still have boats open. If anyone wants to get in on the cool temperatures and good fishing, give us a shout...

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

We have done a horrible job of keeping up with posts the last few days but we have a great excuse. We have been non stop with trips to the LA Marsh, the Cat Island House, and plenty of near shore trips. Captains Kenny, Darren, Tom, Alex and Jimmy Ray have been grinding it out from the Shore Thing World Headquarters in Bayou Caddy, MS . The red fish have been the targeted species. The bulls and slots have been in good numbers most days. Capt Kenny has been grabbing some nice trout and some decent numbers too. A couple of the guys have been seeing some stud flounders and we are hoping they make a good showing this fall. The puppy drum have been keeping the crews busy too.

Capt Matt and I have spent the last few days out at the Cat Island house. The gang from Observa-Dome out of Jackson, MS joined us for the fun. Had to call in a favor from our old buddy Chris Walters to help with the cooking and kayaking, he did a fantastic job. Honestly we saw very few specks on this trip, but made up for it on other species. The red fishing was stellar and we loaded the boats with those suckers. Capt Matts crew put a huge dent on our trip limit on the first afternoon! The kayakers had a ball on the ravenous white trout and rat reds. Capt Matts crew even got spooled by a tarpon one of the mornings. Between the steaks, homemade desserts, friendly raccoons, great weather, fun fishing and good friends it was a fantastic three days. Gonna have to let the photos tell the rest of the story so we can get a few hours sleep before we get back at it. If yall wanna get in on some fall fishing, give us a shout. Thanks

Now is one of the best time to fish the Jourdan and marsh around it. I don’t fresh water fish the area but have caught some bass while fishing for reds and specks. A few of the spots that I have had luck at are the marsh around the mouth of Bayou Lacroix, Cutoff Bayou (where it starts off the Jordan, where it comes to Cutoff Lake [VERY SHALLOW stay in channel], and where it goes into the Bay), all the small bayous that enter the bay north east of Cutoff Bayou (also shallow in spot), and Catfish Bayou both ends where it meets the river and the bay.  Depending on the boat you have you may want to run out in the bay to Grassy Point and Whitfield Bight, about 3 miles from the mouth of the Jourdan towards the smoke stacks.  Fish the point and cuts around the point toward the DuPont plant.  I use mostly live bait on a popping cork, but have seen others doing ok on artificial. All spots mentioned can be found on google maps.  Good luck!

Any suggestions on freshwater/marsh fishing in Jourdan river? It's been years since I've been there, but always thought it was a beautiful area.  Also would cut about an hour's drive time from where I've been fishing.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA



Just been trying to keep up with Captains Matt and Kenny...

Those two have been putting their crews on a pile of red fish the past few days. The SE winds have been forcing us to fish on some very high tides in the mornings. The high tides can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Luckily we have been on good terms with the high water. The boats have been fishing in ponds, bays and drains in areas we hardly ever get to fish in. With the amount of mullet, shrimp, pogies and minnows we have been seeing, things are looking really good for the fall.

We have had the boats out everyday, some fishing in MS waters, and others running down to the LA Marsh. Wednesday was a good one, but we did have to leave our bites due to a pesky storm. Capt Matt was out with the Christie crew. They did most of their damage, on the red fish, on their first few casts of the morning. While they were all hooked up, Capt Kenny and the Anderson crew was with in "spittin distance". They quietly set up right next to Matts boat, and both crews put close to 20 reds in the boat very quickly.

I was a little to the South of the dynamic duo with John and Harry from Georgia. It took us several moves before we found the right patch of broken marsh. We were throwing the baits as far back into the flooded grass as we could. Every cast that made into the back of the high water got hammered by perfect sized slot reds. John kept slinging live shrimp around the points we were fishing, and put a few keeper trout in the box as well. The drains we fished that had pogies at the mouth were where we found our bull reds.

Capt Kenny kept grinding, fishing shorelines with breaks, points, ditches, and bait. He did very well with a mess of reds and trout for the Anderson crew. Thursday, I got to run a two boat trip with the Mighty Capt Matt Tusa. The Huskins crew was in town for Mr Rachel's birthday. Matt got the kids and I got the adults. Youth prevailed over wisdom on that day. We did our fair share of damage on the slot reds, but Matts crew put on a clinic. What made it even more fun, was that Mr Rachels daughter, on Matts boat, had never fished before. She caught more fish than anyone on the two boats. They caught a weird looking slot red too. The would be 20 something-ish slot red was barely 18 inches. The fish either had a birth defect or broke its tail early in its life. The fish looked fat and happy, just a lil strange. After we cleaned it, the back bone made a Z near the tail, very weird.

All of the boats have been throwing the same rig with the high water. The Okuma spinning reels(Helios, Trios, V's, RTX, Epixors) have been a must. The spinning reels make for much longer casts, into and with the wind. Twenty pound braided line is a huge help for slicing through the wind, and turning big red fish in heavy cover. Tying it all together has been the Boat Monkey popping cork. The extra weight and loud popping noise does wonders for longer casts and drawing strikes. Still using the Matrix Shads underneath them, tipped with dead shrimp for extra stank.

The trout fishing is still getting better, after a slow summer. The near shore fishing has been consistent, and this many reds has been a great sign of things to come. With the mind blowing amount of bait and cooling temps on the way, we have high hopes for fall fishing. Let us know if you want to get in on it...

Diamondhead, MS USA

For the most part, the wind has told us where to fish. On the windy days(15-20+) the boats have been hugging the shore lines from the Pearl River to Pass Christian. The fishing has been keep us busy, but we are looking forward to playing in the LA Marsh as temps cool.

We had a huge trip over the weekend with the boys from Southern Pipe. 6 boats out, and we made a good showing before rain came through later that evening. My boat got big fish honors with a big red. The prize for the biggest fish was a K-2 Cooler! Since the guy that supplied the cooler was the one that caught the fish, he gave it to one of the young sons on Capt Bretts boat(very cool). When the boats came in, they had drum, sheepshead, reds, specks, whites and some massive flounders. Capt Jimmy Ray did get several oooh's and aaah's with his brand spanking new 24 Blazer Bay.

The weather forced us to reschedule and or cancel many of the trips from last week. With the good weather report for the next several days, we have been trying get our crews in on the comfortable seas. Capt Kenny was out in the LA marsh yesterday with Pat and Chris. He said they drifted a small bay that was infested with slot reds. He said they had at least 20 different fish smash the Boat Monkey Corks. He also said they had times were 3 casts in a row would get hit by reds.

I was playing in the Bay, and on the reefs, with John and Ted. These old Navy buddies were a treat to fish with. Ted was from Michigan and had never seen most of the fish we caught. At the end of the morning, we had a box of puppy drum, reds, and sheepshead. I am certain that they had more fun fighting the big jack crevalles and the surprise bull shark.

Things are still pointing to a fantastic fall bite. Not gonna lie, the cooler temps have been a treat to fish in the last week. If yall wanna get in a trip, before hunting season gets into full swing, give us a shout...

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Capt Jimmy Ray just took delivery on a brand spanking new 24 Blazer Bay. Since the best boat trailers on the planet are made right here in Waveland, MS he had to get one for the new ride. After putting a tricked out Sport Trail boat trailer underneath it, he now has the newest jem in the Shore Thing fleet. On the shakedown cruise, he took his wife and kids out for some near shore red fishing. Looks as though it went well. His wife Tiffany was all smiles, bringing in a mess of reds for supper.

Fall is here and we are all putting our Sport Trail trailers to good use. The boats have been moving all over the county, to get to the best boat launches. Some days, Mother Nature tells us where we should and should not fish. Keeping an eye on buoy reports, radars and forecasts, we just have to play the wind and waves. Just in the last few days, we have launched in Pass Christian, Bay St. Louis, and Ansley. Being able to move with the weather has allowed us to get trips out when the crews really want to get on the water.

One such trip was the Knight crew, 4 couples that myself and Capt Kenny took out. Once the morning showers blew through, I took the boys and Kenny took the gals. Between the embroidered fishing shirts, blaring dance music, and adult beverages, Capt Kennys all lady crew was unstoppable. My boys put up a few drum and small throw back fish, but we where no match for the them. They had big drum, lil drum, reds and trout. You just cant compete with a boat load of Southern Belles.

Capt Matt and Alex were out there the same day and they were doing well with the 2 boat Gordon crew. They were putting the weighted Boat Monkey Corks to good use in the stiff winds. Shrimp Creole Matrix shads were the go to color underneath the Boat Monkeys, for the school trout. Since the shrimp seem to be everywhere now, this combo has been deadly.

Capt Matt had a couple good days in the marsh with fellow USM graduate, and Hall of Famer, DaQuincy Scott. DQ and his buddies racked up some big hauls of slot and bull reds. Capt Matt said the big trick was finding clean water in the shallow bays. Once the crew found the right combo, it was game on.

I have always been a "half full" kind of guy, and I think we are in for some STELLAR fall fishing. Some of our weekend dates are already completely booked. If anyone wants to get in on some trout, red, flounder and drum fishing in the cooler weather, please let us know.

For the most part, the fishing has gotten better. The school trout bite in the LA Marsh has picked up, the big reds are keeping the customers busy, and we are seeing a few triple tail.
We have have been entertaining corporate groups a lot this past week. The 5 boat trip with First Heritage from RIDGELAND, MS was a booming success. Captains Matt, Kenny, Tom, Ray and Darren put on quite a show. The dock was covered in specks/whites, along with slot and bull reds. They said they had to move a little, but the bites were steady on the Boat Monkey Popping Corks over the Matrix Shads. Shrimp Creole has been the go to color. Most of the guides have been using heavy leaders(30-40lb test) to handle the bull reds.
Capt Tom came in with a nice mess of trout and reds with Mr Milton Weems. They spent a long time on the ride home looking for triple tail. Worked out nice for them judging from the pics. Capt Tom said they missed a huge one too.
Capt Kenny and myself had two last minute cancel/reschedule earlier in the week. All dressed and no where to go, we hopped in his boat for a quick morning bite. I was taking notes, because Capt Kenny put on quite a clinic. Fishing oyster reefs, with Carolina rigged shrimp, we put a box of huge trout together quick.
Got to fish Hancock County Ward 2 Councilwoman Mrs Wendy McDonald this week as well. Her Husband Henry and daughter Amy put a hurtin on the big bull reds. Caught Mr Henry his biggest fish ever, and even nabbed a good triple tail on the way home. Have known this family since day care days, it was a real treat, good folks.
The weather has certainly dictated where we can fish. Just have to play it extra careful. Good news is that the fishing on the reefs and shorelines in MS Waters has been steady. Plenty of variety too: trout,reds,flounder,drum, jacks and bulls.

cruised the marsh shoreline at the back of bayou portage on east side of bay st Louis with trolling motor. Threw a gold spoon for about 45 min at 11 am sat. morn.  Caught 1 big red and 2 undersized ones. One of these days i'll have to get out at 6 am !  8 boats tied up at the drawbridge at the entrance throwing castnets for shrimp. Not catching much, but I guess if 2 people per boat with a net each catch about 6 or 8 shrimp each, and throw 25 times, not bad.

Getting out most everyday, and still makin it do what it do. When the weather allows, we are heading over to the LA Marsh to look for the elusive sparkle trout and reds. If we book a shorter trip or the West wind blows, we have been enjoying the near shore fishing for the trout, reds, flounder, drum and other critters.

Speaking of other critters, we put a small cobia on the boat last week while fishing one of the near shore reefs(MORE REEFS=MORE FISH). Local guy, Logan Hardie had his son Will and his buddies in from Philadelphia, PA. Two of the college kids on the boat had never been fishing, so it was a treat. Every fish that came over the side was marveled at. By the end of the day, we had: speckled trout, bull reds, flounder, cobia, sheepshead, jack crevealle, triple tail, sting rays and a few more less desirables. Every gilled critter that came over the side was followed by a 10 minute discussion on history and evolution. It was fun to have such a fresh crew on the boat. Last fish of the day was an undersized triple tail, that we tagged and released. Those boys will have plenty to talk about on the drive back to college in Philly.

The bull reds have still been keeping us busy. Earlier in the week, the big schools were still popping up, smashing bait on the surface. Been donating plenty of Boat Monkey Corks to the bulls. The big fish have been smoking the popping corks. If another fish hammers the Matrix Shad under the cork, they shatter the rig, even with 40lb test leaders. Most of the time the cork will pop back up, but it takes a beating. Still the toughest cork on the market in our opinion.

What a wild, fun week this past one has been! Gonna try and get it together, but will certainly get the greatest hits. Gonna put a bunch of pics up on the photo page, but put up about 40 on the Shore Thing site(www.shorethingcharters.com REPORTS). Here we go....
Captains Matt, Darren and myself spent some long days in the LA Marsh on Tuesday and Wednesday. Randy Clark and the Observa-Dome group invited us out to a mother ship in the Marsh. Got to work doubles with the gang from the Due South III. Captains James, Jeremy and Leo were very accommodating to the partnership, even though we were more like pampered guests. We would pick the crews up every morning from the big boat and were fishing minutes later. The school trout were very good to us and we put up some good numbers the first morning and afternoon. The shrimp were jumping everywhere, and the trout were smoking them. Capt James even took out one of the skiffs and got a nice triple tail. It was a good feeling having that big boat out there when the little squalls were passing through. The Frisbee sized cheeseburgers they fed us, did not hurt either. The Shore Thing, Due South team put up 100 something trout and a pile of red fish.
The last afternoon, Capt James told us that the trip limit of trout was done, so we went strictly looking for reds. My man Jason got to sight cast to a huge black drum in a foot of water, it was incredible. Traveling through open water in the marsh we rolled up on a huge school of giant bull reds. We were slinging the Matrix Shads(shrimp creole) under the Boat Monkey corks. Hooked 7 quickly, broke off 4 and landed 3. Just an absolute great way to end our 2 days of fun with Observa-Dome and the Due South crew.
The guides during the week, working the day trips, were doing well on the trout as well. Captains Tom, Matt, Darren and Kenny were doing a number on the trout, and reds. We all had to dodge some summer time thunder bumpers, just had to be very careful in our routes. Capt Matt and Kenny had a phenomenal redfish bite, earlier in the week. Working the same small section of shore line, they boys yanked close to 20 slot red fish. Capt Kenny has been on a bit of a streak on the trout as well. Some of the fish are the biggest we have seen in weeks. Mr Perry and Mike Eastman got to experience two good days of trout, red and flounder catching with Kenny.
Coincidentally, the boys have been having some fun with their families, on and off the water. Captains Matt and Darren both got to bring their sons to work this week. Matts son Gray(6) and Darren's son Colton(20) got in on a great trout bite, side by side. Capt Darren and Colton came in with 30 good uns. They sounded like they had more fun watching young Gray show his skills. That lil dude is going to be a force to reckoned with on the water. Capt Matt has taught him well, quickly.
I was lucky enough to sneak my daughter out of her Pre-K class on Thursday. I needed her to help me give a fishing talk to the First Grade class at Coast Episcopal Elementary. We had an absolute ball, and some of the students in the class had even fished with me before. One awesome way to spend my day off from fishing.
Since the lady fish and pogie schools have been close to shore, the big bull reds, Jacks, bull sharks and black tips have not been hard to find. Once the trout and red fishing ends, some of our crews have requested to break out the big poles. If you have never done this type of fishing, it is an absolute kick in the pants! Anything bloody or wiggling gets hit on the wire leaders and circle hooks. Some of the bigger sharks have been pushing the triple digit mark! Just never gets old hearing that drag scream.
Looking forward to getting Capt Alex back in town. He is guiding dove hunts up north. He said the pigeon shootin has been good, but he wants to get in on the trout slaying before duck season gets here. What a life...
Fishing seems as though it is getting into a good consistent pattern. We have boats open most days if anyone wants to come get in on the action.

We were booked most of last week, but the wind and rain caused the majority of the trips to reschedule. Like we tell all of our customers, if it is not safe or productive, we don't want any part of it. On the days we could get out, big fish were what most of the sights were set on. Cinderella story of the week was when Capt Darren grabbed the best weather day and threw a Hail Mary down in the LA Marsh. He found a great trout and red bite, one of the better ones we have seen in weeks. Happy to see it, but the weather kept us from getting back to it, and we were only able to fish in close. The near shore fishing was great on the big critters(bull reds, black drum, sharks and jacks), but we are all wanting to get the fish Darren found.

Myself, along with Captains Kenny, Matt and Tom got to fish the boys from St Stanislaus over the weekend. We had young men from all over the globe for several hours. Many of these boys had never been on a boat. We caught reds, drum, flounder, sharks, jacks and just a great day on the water.

Hopefully these last few days of South wind has pushed some salty, oxygen rich waters into the hunting grounds. In a perfect scenario, it would have stacked up plenty of bait and trout into the marsh for us. We have trips rolling all week and plan to check every where and everything.

We still have boats open if anyone wants to come and wet a line. Been seeing more 4-wheelers and tree stands being pulled behind trucks driving through town than boats. Now that hunters have started getting into the woods and school is back in full swing, the fishing pressure is way down. The seemingly unlimited number of Spring and Summer throw back trout we battled earlier in the year, should be ripe for the picking in the coming months. Give us a call if you want to set something up for fall.

Thanks to all of you, missing those great reports made me go back and retrieve a few pics that have become a favorite of mine. We caught our limit of speckled trout that day out of Venice Louisiana.

The weather was perfect and Captain Louis was a champ at finding them.

It was my first catch at the Redfish, and my lady friends thought it was the bomb of a picture.

Secret Formula, One of the pack, Jazzy trout, All the weekend warriors give me words to live by.

I appreciate ALL the advice and ALL suggestions on how to fish where to fish, and even how to cook the fish.

We all share the same passion for CATCHIN.

The open water is my sanctuary, no matter the heat, the cold,wind,or rain.

At the end of the day, it was worth every minute. If any of you ever have an empty spot on your boat, call me up, Wanda Stewart and Mike Lane will fill it.

So I wish you all a great weekend and if you get stuck inside share some of your favorite photos with RodnReel. or stories,

Special Thanks to Captain Louis for taking Mike Lane and I out CATCHIN. Also to Captain Jack Payne out of Delacroix and Reelseaman who is an avid fisherman when he isn"t working his own business of selling and installing SUNSETTER AWNINGS

You can't beat a Venice Sunset or Sunrise I love them both.

Secret Formula, sorry to hear about your boat and the missing part, but I would tend to be on the side of the culprit if I read your last report correctly. Sometimes the boat needs a break as well as the owner. And I believe the culprit is making a strong statement about liking your company.

Your boat will still be there next week, enjoy your weekend and have a beer or two for me.

Amen to Captn. Sonny’s comment about fishing pictures and video games. Last week I had the priceless experience of having my two Daughters fish with me. Since one lives in Houston and both have 2 teenage children it is not often they make that happen. So it was just me and the girls, as the wife, teenage Grandchildren and hubbies stayed home. Just Daddy and the two daughters on a hunt for the elusive silver wonders and whatever else we could entice to bite our lines. Well, we had a hard time getting a good number of keeper trout but we did get to ice a few. However, some bull reds came knocking. My younger daughter caught the biggest one ever for her. It didn’t want to come visit us at the boat but she did a great job getting er done. Even Daddy got into the mix, using a live croaker caught by my older daughter. Both were released to live on in our beautiful SE La. Marshlands. I have attached a few pictures. For me, this was one of the greatest fishing trips of my life. Daddy and daughters on the water enjoying a  fishing adventure on that beautiful day. Taking family and friends fishing is what it is all about; the catching is the cherry on top.
For me, I took my kids fishing for a memory of a lifetime. The age of the participants should not be a consideration.  The heck with video games!!

Boats have running almost every single day. Still having to hunt for the trout, but catching plenty of other things. The boats have been scouring the reefs, MS Sound, Chandelier Sound and Cat Island in search of the illusive sparkle trout. In between stalks, we have been putting the customers on plenty of bull reds, black drum, sheepshead, flounder, and slot reds. Those looking to pick a fight with something bigger, have been opting do battle with the big jacks, and sharks. The boats have picking up a triple tail here and there, but burning plenty of fuel to find em. Big thing, is just having a game plan and sticking to it. The midday and afternoon temperatures have been just to hot to run around blind. We have been leaving as early as possible to take advantage of the cooler morning temps.
Highlight of my week came with a scheduling conflict due to a late arriving flight. I had the day off and my little girl wanted to catch a shark. We could not fish during Discovery Channels shark week, so this was our make up day. She also wanted to try out here new Hot Pink Okuma 30 Trio spinning reel. Third cast of the morning found here locked into a huge Jack Crevalle. Mrs Capt Schindler converted on the double and we were able to get both in the boat, it was quite an ordeal. Shortly after that we hooked a monster bull shark, that the wife fought like a champ. Just as we were getting ready to hoist it over the side for some pictures, a good buddy of mine rolled up. Shore Thing Charters founder, Capt Mike Thompson pulled up with his two sons and there friends Ronnie and Aiden Vanney. Somehow got all the kids in my boat for the picture and they all got one turn to pet the bull shark before we released it. Was this the safest thing in the world to do? Absolutely not, but have you ever taken a picture of your kids best day playing video games?....
With the young guns back in school and hunting seasons getting close, we have boat(s) open almost every day. Give us a ring or shoot us an email if you wanna go have some fun on the water.

Between the heat and the slower than usual trout bite, we have been seeing a lot of different species coming over the rail.

If the trout bite has been worth staying on, we stay on it. On the days the trout either have lock jaw or are too small to keep, we have been going after other stuff. Gotta tell yall, it has been nice mixing things up. The bull reds have been a great go to species, and most have just been showing up, unannounced. I swear we have seen more Jack Creavalle this year than the last 3 years combined. The drum, sharks, flounder, sheepshead and other critters have certainly made for some fun days  when the sparkle trout aren't snapping. Just been loading for bear in the bait department. Has not been unusual to have shrimp, croakers, mullet and pogies in the live wells. If the trout are not cooperating, we have been chunking out the big baits on the big rods.

Capt Kenny, Chef Frank McNeil and myself got to make a quick run to the Cat Island House with the Hancock Bank boys. Seth and Brent brought out some of their buddies for some fishing, food and fun. Caught some huge trout, big reds, sharks and triple tail. The weather was about as nice as you could have ever wanted for one of those trips.

One thing that has helped in catching some of the bigger fish has been the new toys I got from OKUMA Tackle. They were nice enough to let me try out the new Azores 65s and RTX 80 big game spinning reels. Hands down, two of the smoothest reels I have had the pleasure of using. They have some hoss power behind them too. I have only had them less than a week and the drags have barely strained. We have been breaking them in on big sharks, bull reds, jacks, big black drum and a sting ray as big as the front of my boat. Have no doubt these reels could make quick work of big cobia, tuna and grouper.

Big thanks to the gang at Atlantic Marine for helping me with a prop/fuel issue I was having with the new Yamaha 300. Bobby helped me get a more efficient prop and man did ever help. Got almost another Mile Per Gallon out of the prop change. Fishing hundreds of days a year and traveling thousands of miles in that time. The money I am saving traveling at the same speed makes me smile. Thanks Atlantic Marine. My buddy Dylan Leblanc at the Boat House was nice enough to help me change it out. We get by with a lil help from our friends...

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Another good week on the water, have had boats out every single day, making it do what it do. Between the Shore Thing Fleet, we have covered some water, looking for the best bite we can. The wind and rain normally dictates where we have been fishing though. We have been finding fish in close and deep in the LA Marsh. Everyday has been a different bite with the faster moving tides.

Capt Kenny and Capt Tom had some crews this past week that got treated to a wide open bull red bite in shallow water. The Okuma spinning reels got all they wanted on these big bruisers. Some of the big schools had big jacks in them too. They both had the big fish interrupt their trout bites. Since they both had trout in the box, they let the drags scream.

I have been celebrating Shark week every chance I can with my crews. The joy of summer time fishing, is the variety. It has been nothing to catch well over 10 different species in a day. Trout, reds, flounder, sheepshead, drum, Spanish mackerel, sharks and jacks, to name a few have been keeping our customers busy all week.

When the Hoyt crew was on the boat Thursday we had several wild things happen. One of the largest trout to ever come over the rail of my boat was caught. We had a nice mess of school trout already in the box, but nothing over 14 inches. Out of nowhere, a 26 inch fatty hit a live shrimp on the bottom. Capt Kenny said it would have gone over 5lbs. He sees his fair share of big trout on his boat, I seem to have big trout repellent on mine. Very cool to see, and got some great pics of the big fish.

Again with the Hoyt gang, Mr Max caught a nice bull red with a surprise. When I was taking the hook out, I saw what looked like some yellow string coming out of the fishes mouth. When I pulled the string, a baby stingray came out, it was its tail! Just add it to the list of critters an objects we have yanked out redfish: baby nutria rats, crabs, oyster shells, water bottles, and now sting rays.

Got to spend a lil time with my family out at Cat Island. Just wanted to go play on the island, but the girls talked me into kayak fishing. They were playing in the kayaks and found a popping cork that had a fish attached to it, but could not catch it. I grabbed one of my fishing poles and chased down the cork. Had my lil co-pilot get in the kayak with me. My 4yr old daughter was telling me where to cast. With her expert instruction, we were able to snag the moving cork. Turned out to be a big ole sparkle trout. Fish was big enough to pull me and her around. Got the wife to snap a few pics of us and the big fish, and let it go for another day.

Just been a fun summer with the numerous options. Now that school has started, we have boats open almost everyday. Weekends are still hit or miss, but let us know, and we will try to get you on the water.

TROUT TROUT TROUT!!! Bull Reds, Huge Triple Tail and Great Weather!!!!  

Hopefully we are not jinxing things, but the Great Trout Depression of 2014 may be ending. Happy to report, this past week was the best trout fishing in almost TWO months!!! The guides have been coming in with good numbers of school trout from the marsh. Still slinging the Boat Monkey popping corks over Matrix soft plastics. The crews that want to soak live baits have been putting some huge trout and good numbers on the dock as well. The nice weather we have been having has not hurt our efforts either.

In between the trout "recession", the big bull reds have been putting the Okuma spinning reels to the test. The boats that go over to the LA Marsh have been messing with them almost every single trip.

Capt Alex spent all week over at the Cat Island House. Three days with Capt Matt and the Baker Crew from Mobile, then 4 days with Capt Kenny and the Contractors Inc crew from North MS. He did well chasing his cobia, and both of the crews came in with good numbers of trout and slot reds.Looked like he gained 10 pounds from a steady diet of of Chef Frank McNeils Gumbo, etouffet, steaks, boiled shrimp and friend trout.  Capt Kenny was texting me pics of some late evening trout they were catching. Some the topwater caught  fish in the pics were pushing FIVE POUNDS!!!

Capt Tom has had one heck of a week on the trout, but an exceptional week on the triple tail. Two days, back to back, his boat caught an 18 pounder(Brinn Jones), and the next day a 20 pounder(Mr Mark). Funny thing about that is that Capt Kennys two biggest( 26 and 27 LBS) and my two biggest(22 and 24 LBS) were all back to back catches over the years. Looks as though 2014 will be the year of TOM, his boat has been on a roll.

Got to fish with a dear friend of mine, Major Scott Emmel on leave from the US Army. He is old school coast trash and wanted to get a few trout for his family. Got my buddy 15 logs and were back in time for breakfast. Did miss a nice triple tail on the way home, but we will get him next time. My boat has been celebrating Shark Week too. Some of the bull sharks we have been catching are well into the 100 POUND CLUB!!! Donnie Saucier from Carriere got one with his son Lane that was massive. We knew when his son brought in half of a would be 5 pound sheepshead that there was a stud in the area.

With school starting back, our boats are starting to free up more(weekdays and weekends). Looks as though the fishing is getting back to normal. Give us a call if you want get in on the action.

Still going strong, with multiple boats out everyday. Wish I had some earth shattering news about the illusive sparkle trout, but it has still been hit or miss. Big trout with low numbers or small trout by the hundreds picking em through them to get a handful of keepers. We understand this may not be the greatest marketing ploy for an inshore charter company, but brutal honesty is our only policy.
On the other side of things, the FISHING has still be fun. Believe it or not, there are plenty of fish to catch and eat out there. We have been rocking and rolling with big push of charters before the Lil fellas head back to school. Most days the Shore Thing fleet has been fishing in MS waters for drum, reds, flounder, sheepshead and triple tail. All excellent fighters an incredible eating. The big sea monster black drum, bull reds, jack Crevalle and sharks have been testing our tackle daily. They usually get the photo and release. Watching a young angler, first timer or non frequent angler fight and land a 30 plus pound fish on light tackle is what keeps us going. Kinda of reminds us why we love what we do soo much.

Capt Tom caught one of the triple tail we tagged a few weeks back a couple of days ago. Tom, Capt Kenny and myself have been doing well on those critters. Capt Alex will not give the cobia any mercy. Any good weather day he has a chance, he has been running out to chase them. He and Capt Matt are working out at the Cat Island house this week and they have been texting nice photos of keeper cobinowski's.
Just playing the cards Mother Nature is dealing and having fun in the game.

Just been a numbers game or a game of numbers depending on how you look at. We have been getting some really nice trout, but no huge numbers. We have been getting big numbers of school trout, just having to do some serious picking to get the keepers.

On the other hand, if the summer time squalls or the slow trout bite occurs, we just go look for something else. Capt Alex, who just cant get the offshore fishing out of his system has been having fun chasing cobia. He has been releasing plenty of smaller ones, but bringing some tasty keepers to the dock. Capt Kenny got a hawg leg sized triple tail this week. He has been doing very well on those fish lately. We got a big one with the Guice Offshore group on way to dock the day before. Both fish were in the mid to high teens on the pounds. Heck, Capt Tom got his crew on a Gargantuan GAR sight casting this week.

It has been a bad week to be a drum and sheephead. Since we have been loaded down with kids(both big and small), the steady action on those critters has certainly kept our crews entertained. Of course, the drag screaming bull reds have been a great bonus.

There is plenty to do out there, you just have to be flexible and have an open mind. We have been having fun with the variety, at the end of the day, its fishing...

Huge amount of pics on the Shore Thing website.
