Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

In the last two months, some of our guides have literally spent more time at the Cat Island then on the main land. We have had two crews out there this past week and both trips were out of sight good! The day trips have been running like mad. With close to 25 day trips running in the past week, I am sure some details will be missed. The pictures always seem to fill in the gaps on the day trips, and I gonna try to recap the amazing time we had out at the cat island house.

Earlier in the week we had Burns Smith and his crew out at the island. It was some serious work with these guys, they fished hard. We had three boat loads of die hard fish slayers. The weather allowed us to fish all of our morning and afternoon trips. We got to a little bit of everything. Capt Kenny got in to do a little triple tail fishing. They released some smaller ones but were able to bring home some good eaters. Capt Matt and I spent a large portion of our time drifting the island with live baits and soft plastics under the Boat Monkey Corks. We caught some stud trout and Burns and the boys were troopers. The big joke on my boat was that we only caught fish for one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening. Not that I planned it, but it was for the most part, true. It seemed like every outing we had, we would get an all out trout skull dragging for one solid hour (not necessarily a bad thing). Capt Kenny took advantage of one very calm morning and put the smack down on some big trout with the top water baits. Their weapons of choice were Skittler Walks and She Dogs. Honestly though, I think these guys enjoyed battling the big jack crevalles on light tackle more than anything. These boys have traveled and fished all around the globe. We kept them very entertained, and very well fed out there. They enjoyed the ever living heck out of it.

While we were out there, and for the rest of the week, the guys on the day trips were really hustling. Captains Alex, Darren, Ray, and Jimmy Ray hit the water like mad men. They covered some miles the past few days. They spent some days in close in MS waters, working the reefs, bridges and Bay. Most calm days, the boys were down south in the LA Marsh. Some days their trout were hungrier than others, and they were able to knock em down with soft plastics tight lined or under the Boat Monkey popping corks. Other days they had to sling the live shrimp and or croakers to get them snapping. What really helps the most, is all of our guides working together to help the charters be as productive as possible. Knowing where to go is almost as important as knowing where NOT to go. I have fished with these fine gents for years now. When a hot bite happens, working side by side with these guys on a school of fish is like poetry in motion. The stealth and skill these fellows move with, is something to be seen. Some of nicest, most professional trained killers you would ever wanna fish with.

The fish of the week for the day trips, had to be the triple tail. Being at the island, we did not cover a fraction of the open water the day trip boats did. The open water was where the boys put a hurtin on some big fat triple tails. Since most of the week was pretty, calm, clean water, the triple tails paid dearly. It sounded like the quantity and the quality improved greatly this week.

Got one day back on land, and headed back to the island with Capt Matt and Chef Frank "The Real Deal "McNeil. Back for their 3rd time, Dr Jones (Sr and Jr), Dr Henry, Hub, Dr Trey, and new comer Scott were in for a treat. They started the party very early on this adventure. Dr Trey and Hub took Treys Andros Panga out early that morning and later met us at the island. Since our boats are not licensed to catch snapper, they did it on their own ride. They hit some structures in state waters for a very quick limit of snappers. So quick, that they had plenty of time for a little cobia fishing. We were all very pleased with their catch, one of the big snappers and their smallest cobia got released in lake Crisco on our last night for supper! Don't think we will ever get tired of eating fresh trout, but it was a very nice change of pace.

The rest of the three days, we stayed in our boats. Honestly, it was not our biggest haul of trout numbers wise, but I think it may have been one of the bigger hauls size wise. Even the smaller fish were net worthy fish. We sent hundreds of live baits to a very noble death with these boys. The high light of the fishing had to be watching those live baits come to surface trying to get away from those big trout. You would just sit and watch the baits begin to jump or flutter next to the cork, and then WHAMO! We did give the trout a little break during the first half of our last afternoon. Capt Matt went after some triple tail, and I went looking for reds. We took our licks from the hoarse flies and got visited by the bulls and the slot fish. New comer Scott was our golden boy of the trip. He went home all smiles, getting his first triple tail with Matt and first red fish with me. We still have some primo dates available in the fall out at the Cat Island House. Most of Spring and early summer of 2017 is already booked. We cant stress this enough on these trips, if you wanna book out there, you have to plan way ahead, but it is well worth the wait.

In the mean time, we will just be makin it do what it do. Looks like it is gonna be a rather warm summer. We are pushing all of our trips to try and leave as early as possible. The trout fishing has been steady, the reds have been keeping us busy, and the triple tails have been a very welcome bonus. Those looking to tangle with the big critters, come on with it! The big sharks and jacks have moved in too. Get out an enjoy it, just have fun and be safe! Thanks

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

From all of us at Shore Thing Fishing Charters, we would like to wish all the Dads out there a very safe and Happy Fathers Day!!!
Finally, after 4 years of so so weather and sub par fishing, we were able to put together the trip of a lifetime for Mac Delaup and the Texas Cast-A-Way crew! Mac, along with his family n friends have been fishing with Shore Thing, since before there was a Shore Thing. They used to fish Capt Mike when he was running Chandelier boats way back in the day. He has since developed a wade fishing product line (Walk n Wade, Fish n Hunt) and is now the owner of Cast-a-Away rod company.
This crew predominately wade fishes, no matter the conditions. They are absolutely lethal with top water baits, and masters of their craft. We have had some good trips, slow trips and just about everything in between over the past several years. Well... This was to be there start to finish, out of this universe, redonkulously good trip.  
We were able to fish every single morning and afternoon for our 4 day 3 night trip. All were fantastic outings, but some were crazy good. One afternoon, on one of the bites of the trip, our buddy Kyle Jon Johnson with Operculum Media even came out to take pictures. Kyle got some incredible shots, and everyone hit it off great over some fried fish, shrimp and oysters that night.
I usually had 4 wade fishermen and one rider on my boat. We would drop off our waders and make our drift within the same general area. Some mornings, it was soo still and calm, you could hear the Super Spooks and skitter walks "ticking" and then hear the big trout smashing them. The drift fishing was stellar as well. I usually had one person with me. Capt Kenny had the "Clown Crew" Tiny, Lee and Glenn. It was all we could do with the live bait under the BOAT MONKEY popping corks to keep up with the Wade fishermen though. Some outings the drifters won, but most, the waders crushed us. The lack of winds allowed us to work all over the island. There was really no "magic spot" we did well everywhere we fished. The main thing was to watch for mullet, slicks and diving birds.  Using this technique, we came home with over 240 trout and a couple of reds n flounders.
While Kenny and I were out with the Cast-A-Way crew. Our other guides back in Bayou Caddy were putting up some serious numbers of trout, reds, triple tails and white trout. Just glad our Guys took pictures, because their is no possible way keep up with 19 trips in 4 days. Cannot thank the guys back on the mainland enough for helping with everything. Heard Capt Ray has been having a rather lucky boat in the triple tail department. Ray does not like wasting time, and if the trout bite is slow, or Off, you can bet he is going looking for them.
Capt Darren and Capt Alex have been just steady and busy. Those two have been working on trout now over some shell bottoms. They use the live baits to locate the fish and then switch over to the plastics, either tight lined or under a Boat Monkey Popping Cork.
Well, got to go home for a couple hours after 4 days with the Wade fishermen. Enough time to swap out a trolling motor. THANK YOU , to My two saviors, Randy Deschamp( Shamps Trolling Motors) and Dylan Leblanc (The Boathouse). Randy had my back up trolling motor fixed and ready for pick up, and Dyaln helped install it, on a Sunday afternoon I might add!!! A chain is only as strong as the weakest link, and the Shore Thing chain stays strong with good hard working folks like that. THANK YOU Shamps Trolling Motors and The Boathouse for all you do for us.
Kissed my wife n daughter goodbye, and headed back to Cat Island with Capt Matt, Chef Frank, and Assistant Chef Dylan Moore. Joining us on this 5 day trip, was a blast from the past. Me n CApt Matts ole buddies from North West Arkansas aka NWA set this trip over a year ago! Back in the early 90's, we used to teach skiing and sailing with these lunatics at Camp Stanislaus in Bay St Louis. David, Emory, Chris, Buck, John and Hunter would be with us for 5 DAYS out at the island. They got the full "Cat Island Experience". We fished morning, noon and night with these guys. We hiked the beaches on the windy days  or took the kayaks out to explore the bayous. They were blown away by the wildlife and scenery. Most of our fishing was drifting live bait or casting soft plastics over grass beds. We got some huge trout and a couple of really big flounders. We had to run from storms some days, but we usually ate during the rain delays. Chef Frank went all out on this one. Boiled crabs, shrimp, steaks, burgers, gumbo, fettuccine, and food coma breakfasts. My wife even sent out homemade cakes, cookies and fudge.
We tried to do everything we could with this crew. Most had never done this type of fishing, so everything was new. We did a lot of the trout fishing, but mixed it up some days. We drifted through lady fish with big chunk baits for massive sharks and jack crevalles. All week we just assumed we would run into some bull reds, and it never happened. On the last hour of the last day, we finally and literally ran into a huge school of bull reds on a big sandbar. Both boats hooked up every rod in the boats. The water was bright orange around the boats with the schooling reds. Could not have had a better finish to our trip.
It has been non stop the last couple of weeks. Besides the heat, and a couple of rain showers, the fishing has been very consistent. We will try to keep the reports updated, but with the boats fishing everyday, sleep has become a very precious commodity. If we can help get y'all on a trip, just call, text or email and we will take care of it when we get off the water. Thanks

Sow Trout

Long Beach, MS USA

"Pass Cristian shows off its wide variety of fish"
Started the morning out slow as I didn't get my 3
dozen live shrimp until 6: and p this morning and
really was looking forward to visiting a spot my
Big Gradad use to take us boys to fish when he
came to visit from Hueytown, Alabama. Standing
on the rocks I waded in the same place I grew
up fishing with a pole sitting on the rock pile in
Pass Cristian. No sooner than I was thinking of
my childhood and catching a large Mackrel when
I was just 12-13 years old. We would by our bait
from Pass Seafood downtown and go to the rock
pile while it was still dark. But this trip was
special because I catheter a wide variety of fish
this morning. It was slick calm and not suppose
to be a favorable day by the fishing calendar but
boy did I have my hands full catching 4
Mangrove Snapper and about a 5 lb.
sheepshead and I counted 8 nice redfish from 2-
12 lbs. one flounder and 4 nice speckled trout. I
was amazed because the last time I caught a
mangrove snapper was before Hurricane Katrina
and these were nice eating size fish to boot. I
really couldn't find myself keeping these nice
snapper because they are so hard to come by in
that very rarely I have caught them much less
since the hurricane and oil spill. But I saw true
signs of recovery with these fish I caught this
morning. I really believe the coast is finally
coming back to Pre-Katrina days. I wish I had my
camera when all this action was going on but
there was not a person in sight and it was so
quiete and to see my live shrimp dancing on the
top water that I almost thought I was in heaven
for a spell. Never the less it was a true Pss
Christian Harbor kind of day catching so many
different species of fish. A great day to be
fishing.

Long Beach, MS USA

Star Ted the morning Friday at 4:30 am and pick
up my wade fishing buddy. Stopped and picked
up 8 dozen live shrimp from Roscoe's bait shop
in the Passfor the 2 of us. Drove to one of my old
friend (Dr. Jeff Alexander) when we were just
boys in Long Beach. Waded the west side of
Gulfport Harbor and my brother smoked me
catching 15-18 trout and all I got was a gator
following me every where I tried to fish. So mid
morning at 8:30 we picked up and went to our
old fateful spot and boy did the tables turn. I
caught upwards of 20 speckled trout and just like
every time we have dropped in this spot the trout
were eating it up but in small 12-13" trout. But for
a catch and release morning it served me very
well because in the years leading up to Katrina I
used to tag Specks for the GCCA and boy did
this bring back great memories. Maybe next time
we will catch some good table fare and legal
sized trout in our spot my brother and we call  
the DOuble "D" sand bars. And maybe next time
I won't get chased by a gator on the front beach
wading.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Cat Island , MS USA

The Cat Island House has become a second home for many of our guides this. I think if we stay out there much longer, Shore Thing Charters may have to put up a candidate for the Mayoral Election against incumbent Mayor Walter Gaudin? Rumors are spreading Chef Frank McNeil may run?
This years steady near shore, LA Marsh and Island fishing has kept our boats running non-freakin-stop. The past couple of days, Captains Alex, Kenny and myself were out at the island with the 11 person Stanley Crew. This group fished hard, heck they even came out there in their own boats. The first afternoon, they wanted to fish some stuff on their own. They dropped their luggage at the house and took off. We did not have too many chores, so we got things in order and decided to wet a line. This was the first time in 2 years, that three of our guides were on the same boat. The winds allowed us to drift some grass beds loaded with bait and slicks. ALL TOP WATER FISHING, Captains Alex n Kenny would not let me throw live baits(on my own boat). Glad they did, it was an incredible late afternoon bite. Alex was throwing a She Dog, Kenny was working a Skitter Walk, and I was trying my luck with a KVD Sexy Dawg. The later it got, the better fish got. We went from a blow up every few minutes, to almost every single cast. Alex got the most fish, they would not leave that bait alone. I don't know how those two out fished me as well as the did, they spent the entire picking on me. The trout were massive, and the top water blow ups were very intense. We got in late with the other boats but everyone was thrilled with the incredible exciting evening fishing.
Chef Frank, as usual hit a grand slam home run with the boiled jumbo shrimp. They were out of this world. Several of the Stanley Crew had brought out their own floundering gear. The conditions were right, with the incoming tide and they did very well on their late night fishin mission. We thought they were just going to goof off, but they put up a good showing on the flatties. The boys only worked a small stretch of shore line and stuck 16 pretty flounders!!! They said most of the flounders were inches off of the beach.
The winds prevented us from making long runs the next day, so all we did was drift grass beds with live baits under the Boat Monkey Corks. We had some good steady action that first morning. They had plenty of big fish mixed in with lots of schoolies. We talked up the topwater action enough so that they spent the late afternoon fishing big topwater baits. It got calm and very still. We put our 3 boats with in a hundred yards of one another. You could hear the strikes and yells from the boats when each blow up happened. One of the cooler outings we have ever had out there. The next morning we fished top water and live baits over the grass beds one last time. The fishing was good, but the lady fish had found us. They were eating everything we threw out. We went looking for triple tails, but none of the boats saw any. Kennys crew made one last stop and found a nest of huge trout to finish the trip strong.
Sounded like our boats working the Forrest Friday 3 boat day trip had dialed in the triple tails. Capt Brian said he must have seen 30 of them. Most were on the smaller side, but he did box some big ones for his 3rd of the Friday Crew. They also wanted some big fish, so he spent the morning crushing the big black drum in close. Capt Matt made the run to the LA Marsh with Captains Ray to work on the speckled trout. They said the shrimp were popping and the birds were working pretty good. Capt Matt put a big box of fish together, and Rays crew opted out early to go grab a few triple tails before calling it a day.

Col.Steven Pearson U.S.A.F Ret., Yuki, Cody, and Mandy U.S.C.G. were down in Slidell on vacation from the state Washington.They were told about the great fishing in the local area.They also were told about yours truly.My game face was to hunt down some slot Reds or even Sheepshead for the big fish fry they were planning for dinner that night.After making a few stops with nothing to show for(eat for dinner) I moved out to a large shell pile only to find more school Trout under size.The fishing quickly turned to catching as a nice school of slot Reds 20-27" moved in for the kill.My crew stating nailing the coffin shut with a nice box all caught on Rigolets live shrimps on carolina rigs over the shell pile.They told me straight up that catching the slot Reds were way more fun than catching King Salmon.

RIGOLETS LOCAL CATCHING REPORT:

SHOW ME!!!

What a great local trip with Mr.Scott Dickerson and crew from the great "SHOW ME" state Missouri.Scott has been fishing with me for several years and keeps coming back for more.I loaded the live well down with Rigolets Marina cajun crickets.My first stop in the pass was the right call as Scott and crew showed me why they love to fish down here hammering the fish rigged with drop shots.

The catching will only get better in the pass with rising temps and river water residing.You better hire a guide to fill your boxes due to unpredictable tides and changing weather patterns in the area.June, July, and August are prime times.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Lotta one gallon ziplock bags were used in the making of this report. We got a good 4 day stretch of weather and had 24 trips run, with great results. Once again, we had boats scattered from one end of the LA Marsh to the other. We had boats out at the Cat Island house for 3 days and we even had boats fishing nearshore in the Bay and on the reefs. Thanks to some light winds, calm seas and clean water, the trout, reds, triple tails, drum and sheepshead suffered dearly.

Me, Capt Ray and Capt Joey spent Memorial Day with the Hoyt family. Since they had a house on Bay St Louis, we picked them up early right off their pier. Casey, Marnie and their 2 boys Reese and Dillion joined me. We opted to fish Cat Island and did very well on the big trout. Think Marnie got the biggest, but  the kiddos were wearing us out with all the fish coming over the side. Just been drifting grass beds with Boat Monkey popping corks about 2 feet of 30lb leader and a 1/0 Khale hook. If the tout get snapping good on the live bait, we switch to the Matrix plastics or a shrimp imitation like a Savage 3-D.

While we were out there, the other 2 boats were working on the trout, drum, Sheephead, and triple tails back near BSL. We had enough time to stop in close and let the kiddos tangle with the big drum and bull reds. Capt Joey and his crew came in kicking and screaming. Joey said every structure they passed in the MS Sound had 1-3 triple tails on it! All good things must come to an end....

While Capt Kenny, Chef Frank and myself were getting our crew out to the Cat Island  House, Capt Matt was doing it to it. He was fishing Judge Chris Scmidt and his son and now fellow St Stanislaus alumni Will( Class of 2016). Matt said they did not do much until the tide shifted, but when it did, the shrimp pushed through and it was game on. They got a "SCHMIDT LOAD" of trout casting to jumping shrimp. Just about every jumping shrimp they casted to had a big trout sitting under it. The only safe shrimp that day, were the ones in Matts live well. The trout were snapping on the plastics so none of his shrimp were used.

Me n Kenny picked right back up where they left off, the next morning with our Cat Island crew. Kenny's crew was a few minutes ahead of us, he called us over to the ruckus. As we were idling in, my guy Ryan was on the front of the boat. He said, "man the bait is jumping right under the boat"! I thought it was mullet or rain minnows, and grabbed a double plastic rig. When I turned to shut off the engine, one of the plastics touched the water just dangling off the rod tip. A trout nailed it and I realized there were hundreds of jumping shrimp around us. It was like cane pole fishing after that. In about 2 hours, our 2 boats put on a skull dragging and filled the boxes with  beautiful trout. Capt Matt rolled right in the mix with 2 man Selles crew duo. Matt got there after Kenny and I, but still finished their limit well before we did.
Left em snapping and went looking for triple tail and a second breakfast at the island house(It was 8:30am). My crew went 0 for 0, we didn't see any. Capt Kennys crew not only got one, but it is now the biggest one to be caught on a Shore Thing trip in 2 YEARS!!! The 26 inch 21 POUND monster was a welcome sight. This early in the year, to see a fish that big should be a good indicator of great things to come in the triple tail department.

It was a great 3 days at the island, we got some awesome weather too. Our crew caught some massive trout, a bunch of smaller school trout, got to hunt for sea shells, kayaked, hiked, and got to sample plenty of Chef Franks mouthwatering meals. We have gotten a great routine down with the island. Really though, it has been the crews we have been lucky to have out there, they have ALL been wonderful. The Cat Island House is booked pretty solid for the next several weeks, but we do have dates open later in the Summer and Fall. Definitely need to plan ahead if yall wanna get in on the "Cat Island Experience".
All the areas we have been fishing have been productive. The most consistent and fun one has to be the near shore trip in MS Waters. The variety, size, and close proximity to the fish has been outstanding. The big sea monster drum are always a favorite. The red fish seem to more plentiful this year, and the speckled trout fishing in close has been very good. On top of that, there is usually a mixed bag of flounder, sheepshead, and triple tail.
Been seeing plenty of boats out there. Everyone please be safe, be courteous and have fun. Thanks

I had a good time fishing with Mike Lane, Wanda Stewart, and Capt. John coulon on the Cougar with Delta Blue sport fishing. At first it looked pretty skunky, but Capt John had a few tricks up his sleeve and the boat still limited out on snapper and bull reds fishing near SW Pass. Thanks again for another fun trip Mike!

Mr.Barry and Tiffany Malone drove down from Kentucky to get in on the action. We headed straight to the rig that has been putting icing on the cake. The early morning bite was a little slower than Friday(20 knot winds 3 foot seas go figure) but they managed to put up some good numbers fishing with Rigolets Marina live shrimps and Matrix Shrimp Creole drop shot rigs.

Dr.Martin Ramos,daughter Ellie, and BF Robbin (USMC)headed straight back to the hot spot armed with Rigolets live shrimps and Matrix Shads.We made a few moves around the big rig to find the sheep herd.Live shrimps did there job on the heads and Matrix on the Trout.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

We hope everyone had a very safe and fun filled Memorial Day weekend. We at Shore Thing Charters would to thank all the men and women of the armed service for protecting us.

Been enjoying some awesome day trips in between the Cat Island trips. The weather has not been stellar, but we have had a couple nice weather days. The biggest news of the weekend was the incredible showing our crews had at the Fais Do Do(pronounced Fay-Dough-Dough) Fishing Rodeo out of the Bay St Louis Harbor. The only thing the weatherman hates more than fly rod and a video camera on a boat, is a fishing tournament. He was certainly angry at this one, the wind and seas were brutal, so we stayed in close.
I am glad to see there a plenty of tournaments now a days. My hat goes off to the guys and gals that work their tails off to do what it takes to get those winning fish. These tournaments bring tons of people to our area, and pump plenty of money into our local economy. With that said, and I can't stress this enough, WE(shore thing charters) ARE NOT TOURNAMENT FISHERMEN. Even though, every trip we take is basically a tournament, we are after the biggest, and most fish we can catch. We see the occasional big trout and "money" slot reds, but nothing that would consistently place in these tournaments. Our company is about good family fishing fun. However when tournaments have multiple categories that allow everyone a shot at prizes we get to show our stuff.

The weather was lousy Saturday morning, so much so that 2 of the 9 trips we booked rescheduled for better weather. Since the Fais Do Do had categories for sheepshead, flounder, redfish under/over  30 inches and it was blowing 20+mph, the tournament crews stayed in close all day. GOOD CALL!!!!
John and Jeanne Baxter brought their kids William and Rebecca to fish with Capt Alex. Mrs Rebecca, brought her A-game, and took home the 1st Place trophy in the sheepshead category!  Capt Brian was running with one of our fellow St Stanislaus (class of 93) alumnus, Jeff "The Eagle" Loup and his two kids Clayton and Olivia. Capt Brian put on a good show, and the youngsters took the 1st place trophy in the redfish category and placed 2nd in the flounder category! Well done Fais Do Do on one heck of a tournament.
Besides the big day fishing for glory, we have had the boats running all over the Bay, MS Sound, LA Marsh and Cat Island. Everything has been right on time. Capt Kenny had 100 trout with the Hall crew last Thursday before 9AM! He spent the rest of his morning playing with the triple tails, and then grabbed a couple of reds. The multi boat North Amercian Coal crew was in town for two days and they literally filled our dock with speckled trout, triple tails and red fish. It was a group effort, but one impressive haul. Capt Darrien brought in a boat load of trout this afternoon with the Raspberry crew that were all logs. He stayed on the same shell bar all day and just stuck with them. His hard work paid off, it was some of the prettiest trout we have seen this year.
The last couple of days had many "firsts" on my boat. Skipper Samson got his first ever triple tail. Nathan Guice brought some family friends and their kids were both able to catch their biggest fish ever(bull red and black drum). I also got to see my good buddy William Chaffe Jr reel in his biggest bull red ever. I love catching a box of fish, but nothing gets me going like making these memories for our people. They will never forget these days on the water, that is... until we help them catch a bigger one?...

The three amigos Milton Haller, Zac ,and Rhett brothers from Picayune jumped aboard with me to fish the beautiful Chandeleur Island chain.The weather was just stella for island catching so the first stop North Breton Island. We started fishing the east side only to find lady fish,sharks and I mean big sharks. After moving to the west side it was on catching a nice mixed bag of Reds, Trout, and Flounder for a 'Cajun Slam'. The light winds, good tides,and clean green water all came together for perfect gulf conditions.Its was really a great day catching in Southeast Louisiana. *****1 CHASING TAIL Charters LLC****

Big Bryan, good job, thanks for sharing. My boat is white. Lots of idiots out there.  Wed I caught 2 18" trout and 30 white trout close to Deer island and over 50 catch and release trout. The grass beds?  Would they be close to something you may blow?

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Just seems to keep getting better and better! The day trips have been making a big showing in the trout and triple tail departments. On the halfway decent weather days, the trout fishing down south in the LA Marsh has been stellar. The way things have been going, it might be a good idea to buy some stock in Ziploc. Live bait helps most days, but once we find the trout, we have been switching quickly over to Matrix soft plastics and Boat Monkey popping corks. I guess if your buying stock, those two companies might not be bad ones to invest in as well...

Capt Kenny, myself and Chef Frank have spent the last couple of days out at the Cat Island House with the Rose crew. We even picked up a birthday cake and celebrated two of the boys birthday after our shrimp and crab boil.  Believe it or not, two of the 6 people were guides from Indian River, FL. They wanted to sample our area and we did plenty of sampling. Guess we made an impression, they were ready to rebook when we got to back to land this morning. These boys could fish, and they were very disciplined. Capt George and Capt Billy wanted to catch red fish on topwater, so for two days, that's what we did. They were like trained snipers with their spinning rods and Rapala Skitter Walks. I had them the first afternoon and they put on quite a show. I think we went 3 for like 8 on the topwater red fish thing, but they never broke rank. Tell you how serious these guys were. Capt Kenny had the other crew, murderizing the trout. When we all set up to fish, Capt Matt texted us where he had caught 100 trout that morning with the Kermit Broom crew. Kenny and his boat went straight to work on them. They kept us updated every few minutes, saying "got 20 on the floor", "that's about 40", "every cast Sonny", "coming up on a 100". We called them on the radio literally as number 100 was coming over the side. My guys just smiled as if to say, "good for them"! They catch plenty of massive trout in Indian River Lagoon, but what they really wanted was to see those big bulls inhale their top water baits. Through pinpoint casting and persistence, they got what they wanted.

The next morning, while drifting around Cat Island, their skitter walks and mirrodines were getting whacked every single cast by keeper trout. With their eyes on the prize, they politely said, "there is nothing but trout here, can we get away from these and find some reds". Very driven guys is all I can say. We left an every cast keeper trout topwater bite, but we did find more of their reds. The explosions that those big reds produced were heart stopping.

The last afternoon, we asked the group if they wanted to tangle with the drum and reds close to the main land. Think they had more fun with that than anything. Several of the guys actually suffered injuries from reeling in the big sea monster black drum and big reds. It was nothing a few ibuprofens and a cold beer couldn't fix on the calm ride back to the island.

Due to bad weather we had to call our trip early. Had to call in the favor of favors from some good customers of ours. Luckily Billy and Nathan Guice with Guice Offshore had a 42 foot Gaudet deck boat in Long Beach. One call to our old buddy Capt Daniel "D-Rob" Robinson and we were able to get our customers off the island safe and dry. Capt "D-Rob" and Guice Offshore, literally saved the day for us. You Rock GO, THANK YOU!!!!

Big shout out to Capt Alex McIngvale and his triple tail tagging efforts the last couple days. Alex and his crews have been going through tag books like its no body's business. Its always fun to tag those smaller fish early in the season to see how big they get and where they go.

LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN LOCAL CATCHING REPORT:

CAJUN GRAND SLAM

A few weeks back on a cool chilli morning Howard Lynch and family flew in from San Diego,Ca.to get in on the great local fishing they heard about around the New Orleans area.They wanted a mix bag so I did not fish the Trestles(mainly Specks).My crew and I stopped around the ole camp area to find a good mix bag of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, and Flounder for a nice "Cajun Grand Slam" waiting for us. All fish were caught on Rigolets live shrimp on my drop shot rigs in 12 feet of water in heavy cover and yes there were 150 shrimps that died trying.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

The fish have been big, the bites have good, the days have been long and the sleep has been brief. We have had crews out at the cat island house pretty much non-stop. Being able to take advantage of the entire day has made for some spectacular fishing trips. Mother Nature has been out guide out there. If the weather is nice and the seas are calm, we run where ever we want. If the wind blows, there is almost always a place to hide around the Island. The weather beacon at Grand Pass was registering almost 30 mph on Sunday and we were still able to fish.

We swapped out crews on Tuesday, I got to go back to land. Capt Matt stayed out, Capt Kenny came out and then came the wrecking crew. David Clepper,  Shawn aka "Hero" along with their friends n family put on one of the most impressive fishing shows we have ever seen. They stayed for 4 days and literally caught HUNDREDS of speckled trout. They stopped fishing for trout half way through their trip and went to play with the reds, drum and flounder. I don't know if any of the crews we have had out there in the last 5 years have caught that many fish that quick. Well Done boys!!!

The next crew out was the Noland Crew. These boys were from Tennessee and Georgia. These fellas came to fish, and they worked their tails off. We covered some water, because they wanted to experience everything we could offer. We fished grass beds, marshes, diving birds, top water, fly rods, popping corks, live bait and artificial. We caught some huge trout with these guys. One afternoon, when we got some nice weather, my buddies Tim and James wanted to tangle with some really big fish. For the first time ever on a Cat Island trip we headed BACK to Bay St Louis. It was well worth the run, Tim and James got all they could stand. The big sea monster black drum and bull reds were thick. Their arms were shaking the whole ride back. We had a couple doubles on the big ones, and hooked several that never checked up, they just kept going. While were having fun with the big drums, Capt Kenny had his crew were crushing big trout on topwater baits. They were even able to get Mike on some trout and reds with his fly rod. It was really fun being to do so many different things with this crew. We did still catch a pile of fish, but did it at different pace.

The Guice boys with Guice Offshore have been with us for several days. Day two of their quest put Billy and his Paw-in-Law Geary on the trout hunt. Billy's Birthday was the day before, and he brought Mr David for his Birthday the very next day. Those two grinded out their limit, but worked on some fine trout for the last dozen or so. Capt Kenny had called us in on wide open bite. He found some finger mullet pinned against a shallow bank. The trout were punishing them, and just about every cast we put next to the scattering mullet, got a hit. While we were catching the last few, the Coast Guard came in to check us. They were pretty cool guys. They asked all of us for our Birth dates. They got a kick out of the fact that Billy and Mr David were celebrating their birthdays on a fishing trip. On the way home we saw 5 triple tails. Both guys were able to tag small ones.

The big trip the last few days was the Gulf Coast Business Credit 6 Boat Trip. Our favorite wild man Stu Wrba(yes he spells it that way) set the whole thing up. These guys n gals take these corporate trips to whole new level. They throw down some serious coin for their biggest and most fish prizes. When the trip was over, they even filled the entire top floor of The Blind Tiger Restaurant to eat some of their catch (THANKS TBT). Hands down one of the craziest and most fun crews we see all year.

Speaking of The Blind Tiger, we had a  boat fishing in the Pros and Joes Tournament they hosted over the weekend. Back again for their 2nd and third trips of the week, Billly Guice and David Geary were fishing with Capt Matt. The biggest trout they found was in the 4 pound range. They were not in the money, but had a blast fishing the event. We heard there were well over 150 boats fishing the tournament, Way to Go TBT!!!

The 18-20 trips we have had out the last couple days have been fishing high and low. Good news, the fishing has been good in close, at the reefs, in the Bay, around the island and down in the Louisiana Marsh. As long as we can get a halfway decent forecast, the fishing has been fan-freaking-tastic.  Kids are about to be out of school. Shore Thing Fishing Charters DOES NOT charge for anglers 12 years old and under. We may send them back to you smelly, but they will be smiling!!! Give us a shout if we can help. Thanks

LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN LOCAL WEEKEND CATCHING REPORT:

THE FANTASTIC FOUR STRIKES AGAIN!!!

What a great weekend to be out catching on the Lake.I fished Saturday with Mike Quigley and GF Belinda from Georgia.They were in town for a wedding.We started at The Trestles to find lots of boats mid Lake and to the North end.The tide was falling hard like always in the morning. We started off with a bang on the Speckled Trout as fast as we could cast catching 14-18's but GF partied to hard in the Quarter the night before so I had to head to the restrooms which is only a few miles away(thank goodness). After a pit stop we headed back out to find the fish on a reef and ended the day early with a nice catch(only Mike fished GF to sick to fish) so they could make the wedding.

Sunday was a different drummer. The fantastic four Jeff and Stephanie Dunlap, Braden, and Austin put the hammer down on some really nice Speck's around the crack of dawn.Strong Northeast winds had the bite going crazy with Trout eating it up. All fish were caught on Rigolets live shrimp on drop shot rigs in 12 ft of water and yes there were 300 shrimps that die trying.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Since this past Saturday(5 Days), COLLECTIVELY the Shore Thing Charters fleet has brought in close to 900 speckled trout!!!! To top it off, Captains Kenny and Matt are out fishing this afternoon out of the Cat Island House.



The shrimp, minnows, pogies, and mullet have made a big showing in the LA Marsh, and the trout have been right under them. After the painfully slow year we all had last year, this has been a very welcome treat. Honestly though, things have not been right weather wise. The winds have still high most days, and the water in the MS Sound is still murky from the flooded rivers. With the way things are looking now, the sky is the limit as to how good this years trout fishing may be.

Capt Matt and I spent 3 days out at the island earlier this week with the LSU boys. Back for their second time, Mr Bo and his band of merry men were in it to win it. The first after noon and the last morning were where we did the bulk of the damage. We knocked the snot out of the trout, just chasing diving birds in 3-5 feet of water. The big jumping shrimp kinda told you where to cast. The middle day, the winds were up, but out guys did not miss a second of fishing. Matts crew was drifting gass beds around the island. My guys were hitting every point, drain and current line we could find. Live shrimp or cocahoes under the Boat Monkey Popping corks were the most effective. Some were caught on artificial though. We still had good action, and even added flounder and red fish to our fish pile. The last morning, we had to stop fishing. We had maxed out our trip limit. Boat Monkey popping corks, 2 foot leaders and Matrix shads did all the damage. As expected, Chef Frank "From da Westbank, The Real Deal" McNeil brought his A-Game. We were treated to jumbo boiled shrimp, corn and crab bisque, plenty of fresh friend trout, chicken an sausage gumbo and all the finger foods you could imagine. Gotta thank my old buddy Dr Trey Sutton. I ran into him the day before we left for the island. He tightened me up with a big ole chunk of fresh cobia he had caught the day before. Frank breaded that sucker up and it was out of this world. You da man Dr Trey! My mom (Sissie) sent her usual care package of goodies. We had fresh baked cakes, home made buckeyes. spicy crackers, garlic bread, and a few other goodies. Love you Mom!

While we were staying fat and happy out at Cat Island, the boys back on the Day trips were slaughtering the fish. Capt Joey put on a clinic with the Kouba boys, they had some stud trout. True to form, Capt Darren and the World Famous Doll House Family came in with their limit way early. Darren said a few of them had to sit down and take a breather, the fishing was soo fast. Their is no telling how much damage these boys could have done, if we had a decent deal of cards on the weather Monday. With winds in the 20mph range, the day trips rescheduled for a better forecast. Tuesday, we had the boys out in full force. Me and Matt joined the ruckus via Cat Island. We had 5 of our 6 boats working in the same little area. Using the wind and the trolling motors, the guides were able to stay with in range of the fish, and not scatter the schools. It is a beautiful thing to be a part of when everyone works together and plays nice....

Today was not as fast n furious, but all the crews returned with a mess of trout. Capt Darren has been having the hot hand with the Nash boys. They have filled the boat 2 days in a row! Capt Alex got the first triple tail of the year for Shore Thing! We have seen a couple the last few weeks, but they have been skittish to us. I had Nathan and Billy Guice on board today. We got our trout over birds and oyster beds. No real big fish, but healthy school trout. On the way home, we saw 4 small triple tails! Only got one to take to a bait, and he spit the hook. The Guice boys are ate up with triple tail fishing, and they will make those fish pay dearly for messing up Billys Birthday trip. Happy Birthday Billy Guice!!!

Hopefully the good bite will continue, the fishing should only get better. No one owns these fish or any spot out there. We try to be courteous to other anglers, and we hope everyone will do the same. There are plenty of fish out there for all of us. Join us on a trip or get there on your own boat. Either way, please respect everyone, even the knuckleheads. Just enjoy it, have fun and please be safe. Thanks

All go no quit, but having a ball! We are at that point in the year where it's just too hard to keep up with every detail. Just gonna do a greatest hits compilation and let the pictures fill in the gaps. Here we go!....

Capt Kenny and I spent 5 DAYS at the Cat Island house last week with the Encompass crew.(Bill, Jeremiah, Seth, BJ, Paul, Scott, Steve, and Jerry). This is their 3rd time back at Cat Island. They spend a couple hours fishing in the AM and PM, then spend almost all day in meetings. With just a couple hours a day to fish, we made one heck of a showing. The winds and clock kept us close around the island, but the fish were there. We chased birds for our trout. The water was clean on the leeward sides and the bait was thick. Boat Monkey popping corks, 2 foot leaders, and Matrix Shads did all the damage. When the water was up, and moving we jumped back into the bayous and canals. The slot reds and flounder were very good to us. One small drain we put both our boats in yielded 8 flounders in about 20 minutes! When we could get through the rat reds, the slot reds were good. The rats were plentiful though. I made 6 casts and caught 6 rats on one bank. We used Boat Monkeys, 16 inch leaders and and live cocahoes for the reds n flounders.

While they were in meetings, Kenny and I explored the island for "treasure". The beaches were full of trinkets. We found buoys, drift wood, buckets and animal skulls. In between we got to see Eagles, Ospreys, alligators, snakes and even saw a squirrel on the island. The food was out of this world. We had jumbo shrimp that Chef Frank boiled, bacon wrapped, and made fettuccini. We had steaks, blackened red fish, cheese burgers, poboys, and fried trout. The desserts and truckers breakfast were enough to knock your sock offs.

Seas were bouncy on the departure and the return, so we called in a favor to Capt Kevin and the Blind Tigers 32 foot Twin Vee catamaran, "Tigger". The Encompass crew was shuttled to and from the island in style. That boat is an absolute beast, and the boys loved the smoother than silk ride of the big cat boat.

Before we left for Cat Island, I was able to run Mr Dean Taylor and his son in law Steven for a quick trip in the Bay. Winds were a blistering 25mph but we smashed a 3 man limit of reds in no time. The Okuma spinning reels were put to the test, but playing the wind, we were able to launch live shrimp against one point and get the entire limit. It was challenging to fish, but once we go the rhythm down, it was easy work.

While Kenny and I were out there the boys were playing in the wind. They were able to knock the snot of the fish on the near shore trips. They were slaughtering the reds, sheepshead, drum, flounders, and trout. Being able to move around town and launch with our Sport Trail trailers allows us to make the absolute most of a windy day.

Capt Matt was joined by the one only Capt Kyle Jarreau. The "old man" has still got it. Those two snuck out to the LA Marsh and put on an old fashioned Skull dragging and came in with 50 speckled trout. We sure do miss having Kyle around, but it's always a treat to see our friend Kyle.

We were able to run a massive trip over the weekend, compliments of the Silver Slipper Casino, right next to our dock in Bayou Caddy. We had 9 boats and 33 VIP's from the casino. Capt Kennys crew won the mini tournament for the most trout and the biggest. My boat took home the red fish award. It was some kind of haul, and awesome weather! Can not thank the good folks at the Silver Slipper Casino enough for all they do for Shore Thing Fishing Charters, THANK YOU!!!!

Another massive THANK YOU to Mr Steven Trellis at THE BOATHOUSE. I am heading back out to the Cat Island House in the morning and had some serious boat issues. My man Steve was putting in some OT at the Boathouse, dropped everything he was doing and helped me pull wrenches to get the Hydra Sports spinning like a top. I can honestly say(fishing the last 4 weeks straight with one day off) that we could not fish as hard as we do without Team BOATHOUSE. You guys are the best, THANK YOU!!!

The Shore Thing boats are running everyday and the Spring Fishing is in full swing. Fishing has been light years better than this time last year. We are looking forward to some good days out there. Hope yall can join us. Thanks

Lake Pontchartrain Report: Mr.Pat Leblanc(85 yrs old)from Texas wanted to check off catching Speck Trout on his bucket list.So we hit the Lake with not the greatest forecast but I made the best of what was working for me.After slamming the Specks for about 2 hours he had his limit with high winds and rain moving me.I call it a day. He tells me after returning to the Rigolets Marina that this day was the greatest day in his life. *****1 CHASING TAIL C4harters LLC**** Established 2002 Welcome aboard to fish with one of the oldest and most experience charter boat fishing company and guide service on the entire northern Gulf Coast region.
