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?...

CHANDELEURS BOOTY!!!

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.

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

Mr.Bob Olexy and Miss Lisa drove over from Texas to get in on the fantastic Speckled Trout fishing they have been hearing about from there daughter. So we headed over to the Trestles to check out a run with no luck with hard outgoing tide.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

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

Showed up on a reef near LB harbor and started
catching nice legal sized trout. Landed 2 nice
trout and I was flooded with fisherman trying so
hard to get to my bait I got frustrated and left em
biting. When folks start throwing THIER lines
across mine whether or not the fish are biting it
just aggravated me to leave the fish biting. I
guess maybe news travels or these fisherman
saw me land 2 nice fish under the darkness
before daylight. I picked up and moved to my

What an absolutely amazing couple of days! We had the biggest boxes of trout come in this week, and had a great time out at the Cat Island House. Earlier in the week, the boys were making a good show of it on the near shore fishing. The big black drum and big bull reds have shown up. The sea monster fishing should be good for the next several weeks.

Me and Capt Alex got to spend 4 fun filled days out at the Cat Island House with the Van Slyke crew. Back for their second time, these boys were treated to some fantastic fishing, food and fun. The first half of our adventure was pretty windy so we were fishing around the island. The Okuma spinning reels came in very handy in the heavy winds. I have been very pleased with my new Okuma Inspira, it is my new favorite toy. Had we been in Louisiana waters, we would have limited out on red fish in minutes. The amount of 16.5 to 17 inch redfish out there is mind boggling. Luckily we were helping the good folks at the Gulf Coast Research Lab collect fin samples. We have been trimming a small finger nail sized clipping of each red (rat, slot and or bull) anal fin. I know the week before we filled a box of 81 samples and we got close to filling a second box of 81 on our 4 days out at the island. In between our "Rat" Island research assistance, we were able to get some big trout, flounders and keeper reds.

When we did make it down to the LA Marsh, the fishing was incredible. It has been several days since we have been there. Don't get me wrong, the near shore fishing has been extremely fun. The big catches of drum, reds, and flounder have been awesome, but a hot bite down in the LA Marsh is hard to beat. Alex an I, ran into Captains Matt and Ray while we were over there. We all spent the morning pecking around looking for our bite. We were able to knock out a limit of red fish when the winds picked up, but the VHF came alive when the tide started moving. Capt Matt and Capt Rays crew were mauling trout in two different areas. The were fishing shallow shell bottoms, infested with trout. Capt Alex joined Capt Ray and went to cracking on the trout as well. Matt was fishing with his Platinum Elite Charter Member JC and they had made quick work of a 3 man limit of trout, and had a pile of reds.

It was late in the day, we had already missed our lunch appointment with Chef Frank "The Real Deal" McNeal back at the island. We were literally waiting for Alex and his to crew to meet us to ride in. While we idled through one shallow cut, we were drifting cocahoe minnows over a shallow shell bank looking for some big flounders. Not a flounder to speak of, but the big sow trout were lousy over those shells. The tide had the water moving, so were drifting the minnows one cast at a time under the Boat Monkey popping corks, but every cast got hit. Some of the trout were huge, and we boxed 40 big uns in no time.  

The wildlife at Cat Island was in full force. The swallows were nesting underneath the 2nd floor porch. The big Ospreys were everywhere, we had an alligator come by the house, and of course the raccoons came by for a visit. On top of that, the boiled shrimp and crabs, fried oysters, gumbo, fresh fish, shrimp fettuccini, and fresh desserts were out of this freaking world. Looking forward to a busy year out at the Cat island House.

Believe it or not, we have been making a go of it, 5 of the last 6 days!  Yes even during Tropical Storm Sunday too. We are always brutally honest about weather forecasts. The fishing reports were good and all the crews were really wanting to wet hooks.
Wednesday was a complete wash. Tuesday we had to wait at the dock 5 hours for the weather to pass. Thursday  "only" had to wait 4 hours...Luckily everyone was either staying in town or cool with waiting it out.
Thankfully, the areas we have been  able to hide from the wind have been holding fish. If it is gonna blow, at least it is out of the east. Maybe it will bring our salinity back up and we can get back to normal. In the mean time, the redfish, drum, Sheeps, and flounder have been paying the light bills. Been seeing some bull reds in close too!!!
The high water has allowed us to get right next to the shorelines and fling live and dead shrimp under the Boat Monkey corks right into the flooded grass. Picking through the rat reds has kept us busy, but they have plenty of keeper fish in between the steady action. Very pleased to see the puppy showing up in good numbers, and never get tired of slot sized red fish. We have seen some serious flounders coming in. No huge numbers, but it's the most we have seen since October.
Even in the filthy water, we are still bringing in a few trout. All 14 of the trips we had out the last week, were in MS waters. If we are seeing a decent amount of trout in these conditions over here, the LA Marsh should be rolling in the coming weeks!
Sorry for the brief report, just gonna have to let the pictures from the trips tell the rest of the story. I was out in that stuff, taking my fair share of pictures and I can't believe we put those catches together. Finding safe protected water first, then begin looking for fish.
We will have crews out at the Cat Island House this coming week. Looking Forward to  that very much. We will do our best to keep the reports and pictures updated.

Thanks for the shout out Mr Milton, nice chatting with you the other day.

How bout a fishing report?...
Just keeps getting better every day. We are getting ready for what has the makings of an amazing spring bite. Capt Matt was able to put a nice box of trout together last week, down in the LA Marsh with the Merritt Boys. The winds did not give these boys much of a break on their two day adventure. Tusa went for it, and went from zero to hero quickly. Matt searched far and wide until he found a pocket of clean water over some shells. Matt said the first cast was about a 3 pound trout, and the second cast was a big bull. The bull shut down the trout, and Matt left them. He checked on a few more spots, but none had that clean water so returned back to it. He said they were holding in this one little cove, and would not leave the cleaner water. They were able to crank out 45 before another bull red showed up, and  shut down the party. Matt said the bite was just as good with a Matrix Shad under a Boat Monkey popping cork as it was with a live shrimp under a Boat Monkey Cork.
Kenny was helping the Sparks crew cross off a bucket list item. FOUR GENERATIONS of Sparks men descended on the Bay and had a themselves a good ole fashioned skull dragging. They had a Great Grandpaw all the way down to the 4 year old Great Grand Baby. Kenny loaded the boat with shrimp, tackle, and eventually a pile of fish. Staying very close to the dock, this crew mauled the fish. They returned with an overflowing box of sheepshead, redfish, puppy drum, flounder and even a trout. Mid way trough the trip, Kenny had the 4yr old casting, hooking and catching fish. The lil guy even had Kenny clean his fish separate so he could take "his" fish home. We say the prhase a lot, but this literally was "The Trip of a Lifetime"!!! Great job everyone!!!
Took all week, but we were finally able to get Buck and Mary out on the water. They were in town from California, and wanted to get the best weather day. The very last day of their 5 day vacation gave us flat calm water and cool temperatures. Buck is from the area, but Mary had never fished here. Every fish she caught was her first, so it was a big day for her. She got her first sheepshead, flounder and red fish. With the higher water, we were able to do a number on the red fish and flounders. The sheepsead were every cast, and we would leave them biting. They were really not interested in keeping fish, but when I told them that we clean their fish, and The Blind Tiger Restaurant in downtown Bay St Louis would cook their fish, they were blown away. TBT has hit a homerun, cooking our customers catch. This lovely couple got to enjoy lunch, dinning on fresh fish they caught only an hour or two before! Thank You Blind Tiger for helping make a great day on the water even better on land, you guys rock!!!
Capt Matt could not sit at home with the perfect weather. He chunked his son Gray in the boat for a quick trip in the Bay. The dynamic duo were able to make quick work of the sheepshead and red fish. When the winds picked up, they were already back at the dock. Quick trips with the youngsters are better than no trips. All of our guides are firm believers in "More Tackle Box and Less XBOX"!!!
Got a chance last to week to meet and fish with a very cool young man, my new buddy Kris. A friend of Kris and his Mom Melinda, Mr Terry saw our show on Gulf South Outdoors. He saved our number, because "we seemed like nice people". He wanted to get Kris out on a boat and see if we could help him catch some fish. Kris was all smiles from the second he got on the boat, till he left. I do not care for the term special needs, because this young man needed not a thing. Kris reeled in every fish, and was one of the most fun dudes I have every been on a boat with. Even when we got checked by the MSDMR (water police), Kris helped me show the agents all of our safety gear. What was supposed to be an hour long experiment, turned into a half day adventure. We caught a ton a sheepshead, and Kris liked to call them "Sh&T Heads". Pleasure to fish with this guy and his family, and glad I got to make a new friend.
Spring his here, and we are ready. The next few months will be a little crazy for us. We will do our best to update the pics and fishing reports ASAP. Of course....If you would like to be in one those pictures and fishing reports, just give us a call. Thanks

Our boats have been scattered 30 miles in every direction. Our Sport Trail Boat Trailers have been getting some hard miles put on them. Seems like everyday we have been leaving from a different boat launch. Working off the trailers had made all the difference the past few weeks. That's why we have to use the best trailers made (SPORT TRAIL TRAILERS). Been catching fish, but no huge numbers the last few days. We have fished reefs, islands, bridges, and all sides of the LA Marsh. The water gets a smidge better everyday, and the fishing has too.
One of the better trout days we had the last few days, was probably the windy and roughest days. Capt Matt and I were tucked in behind the reefs. I was fishing a crew Dickie Doucet sent us from the Island View Casino. We were chunking live shrimp on the Carolina rigs over shells in 8 feet of water. It was a slow bite. The boys drinking beer did the best. They would make a cast, take a sip, and just let the fish find the shrimp. Drinkers with a fishing problem, I freakin love it! Capt Matt, fishing the Richards crew, was doing just as good with the tight lined soft plastics. We got bit almost every single cast, but had to pick through them to get the keeper sized trout. Had a few sheepshead mixed in.
We got some picture perfect weather on Sunday. Capt Matt and I went long. Had Mrs Wendy, Mr Henry and my old elementary school buddy Jessica (Rupp) and her husband A-A-Ron in town from Jackson Hole Wyoming. Both boats were looking far n wide for the trout, but had to settle for plan B. The sheepshead saved the day for both of us. Since the water was still murky, we threw nothing but live shrimp all day long. We fished em deep on the bottom, and in the shallows (4 feet of water or less) under the Boat Monkey popping corks. Mrs Wendy had the hot hand all day long. She not only had the most sheepshead, but won the variety award for catching trout, flounder, and the first pompano of the year! Mr Henry was nice enough to clear all of the hard head catfish out of her way. What a true southern gentleman!
Monday I was the only one out, fishing with Matt of Academy Sports and his family. Went deep into the marsh, trying to use the low water to find some redfish. Did not see a bunch, and the ones we saw were very skittish. We had a mixed bag of sheeps, puppy drum, small trout and redfish. Covered some water, fishing the west side of the LA Marsh, but water was still murky.
Tuesday, we had boats scattered in a 30 mile area. Capt Matt and Capt Kenny were looking for trout with the Knolton and King crews. No big keeper numbers, but plenty of action. They were visited by the reds and sheepshead in their quests. I was fishing a sort of "goodbye" trip for Shore Thing Platinum Plus member, Mr Jim Watts and his daughter Alexandra. Jim and his family has been fishing with us for about 7 years now. They are from Kentucky, but have a home in Bay St Louis. They are in the process of selling and moving, but wanted to get one last trip in before they head back north. It was a fun but sad day on the water. We talked about what the future may bring for both of our families. His daughters have been fishing with us since elementary school. Now his oldest is planning on which college to head to in the fall. As usual, his oldest daughter Alexandra caught the biggest and most fish. They were really not even keeping fish, they just brought a few back to give to their neighbors one last time. We did a number on the sheepshead, but let most of them fight another day, and put them back in the water. Alexandra wanted to give her redfish to their neighbor though. We spent the next day helping them find a home for some of their stuff. We sold off some of their fishing tackle, and even  12 FOOT BLUE MARLIN. They did not want to drive it back to Kentucky, so we figured it would look good in The Blind Tiger Restaurants "Marlin Bar".  Capt Kenny and our friend Capt Kevin Schamburg put it in the back of my truck and drove it down the beach to the Tiger in downtown Bay St Louis, to its new home. Pretty interesting morning, to say the least.
 They have been very fun to fish with, and still plan on coming back, maybe when their girls get older. So maybe it was not actually goodbye, just "catch" you later...
Things are still looking good for a bang up Spring. It is still early, and the water temps are still cool. With a couple of days of South or South East winds, the saltier waters should get pumped in here. We go through this every single year waiting for the big waves of trout to push in. When they show up, we will catch them. Until then, we simply have fun and catch what ever is biting the most consistent. At the end of the day, its all fishing. Just get out there and enjoy it!

I have never seen this--this evening at twilight, in bay st Louis I saw 2 pelicans sitting/paddling on the water with their beak below the surface for a minute, then lift their head up to swallow what ever it was they scooped up.  And kept repeating this over and over as they swam along without ever getting up in the air.  No other birds or seagulls ever approached them from above or joined in.  Were the 2 pelicans on to a school of shrimp coming to the surface for night or just a school of shiners ??  I thought it was odd they weren't diving from the air.

If I have had more fun on the water, I sure don't remember it. Gonna be a long report, with one heck of an ending!!!!
You just can't fight Mother Nature, and she has been one angry lady lately. We have not given up, just rolling with the punches. Towards the end of last week, Capt Matt and I even snuck out to the LA. Marsh. Matt was rolling a crew from Wisconsin. They spent the day playing with the reds. I had the boys from the Silver Slipper Casino. Bill Desjardins put the trip together for one of their VIP's, Mr Larry. We even had the Big Dawg, Mr John Ferrucci jump on the boat at the last minute. Where ever we found clean water, we found fish. Only found a few specks, but they were much appreciated. John has not caught a saltwater fish in years and 65 year old Mr Larry had NEVER caught a fish! When the reds showed up, they were blown away. Mr Larry even caught the big bull of the day. Water looked much better out there than the last trip we made out there but it was not gin clear. With the murky water, we threw live or dead shrimp under the Boat Monkey Popping corks all day long.
Saturday we had a slew of boats out. Capt Darrien had the Whetstine crew, Capt Kenny had the Stanfills, Capt Matt was with the Weston family. I had my first trip of the year with the one and only Guice Offshore Gang. All of the crews were going on the forecast we were given, Light n Variable winds with a 20% chance of rain. Weather was terrible, and Capt Matts crew wasn't feeling it, so they went in early. The other three boats huddled up under the bridges, and we were able to stay dry. When the weather finally broke, Capt Kenny was set up on a nest of big sheepshead. Kenny has been on a roll lately, even in some of the toughest fishing conditions we seen in years. Darriens crew found  few trout mixed in with their sheepshead. Darrien has been doing very well on the red fish in the Bay. The rats have been everywhere, but if they stick it out, they find the slot fish. We were able to find sheepheads as well, but Tyler won the award for the fish du jour with a nice bull red. It was a very chilly, windy, wet day but we were able to make it work.
Sunday all of the Shore Thing Guides celebrated Easter with their families and loved ones. And then there was Monday...
Capt Matt was out at Cat Island with the Whetstine crew, back again from the weekend. They were having such a good time on their vacation, they wanted to see more of the MS Gulf Coast. It is hard to find anything better than a sunny day at Cat Island. Capt Kenny was rolling with the Ferrell crew. Once again, Kenny and his crew were putting on a good show. His shrimp have been dying noble deaths lately. I don't even want to think about what his tackle bill must be. We "donate" a bunch of hooks, line, sinkers and swivels fishing these near shore structures. No matter, the sheeps, drum, trout and reds have all been falling victim to his tactics on the near shore reefs.
Monday was likely one of the most memorable days on the water I have ever had. My 6 year old daughter, Margot is out on Spring Break. I promised her we would fish while she was off from school. I let her pick who she wanted to take fishing, since momma had to work. She invited her extremely well mannered 5th Grade Buddy Brady McCaw, from Coast Episcopal Elementary. Coincidentally, her 5th grade buddies mom is Margots Kindergarten teacher, The Famous Mrs McCaw! Both were more than happy to join us.
We kept it close to home, and went to work on the sheepshead, drum, and reds. Mrs McCaw and Brady brought their "A" game. I even caught Mrs McCaw sneakily hooking a few fish, and asking Margot or Brady to hold the pole for a second. My wife thought it would be a good idea to drop off doughnuts for the trip. Margot made sure the boat was covered in rainbow sprinkles and chocolate milk, all you could do was laugh. We were able to get Brady his biggest fish, with a hefty a black drum. The most fun was working the shorelines with the shrimp under the Boat Monkey Popping Corks. I finally went to check these areas Captains Ray, Darrien, and Matt have been working. It was everything they said it was. Brady was slinging reds over the side left and right. Margot was holding her own. Mrs McCaw just could not keep up with these two rascals. We even included a little science in our trip. Dr Jim Franks at the Gulf Coast Research Lab has given me a sampling kit for red fish. I have about 100 mini test tubes on the boat for a trimmed finger nail sized clipping off a red fish tail. Margot, Brady and I must have filled 20 of them, they also named every single fish we released. It says a lot for Coast Episcopal and Mrs McCaw that my daughter would want to spend her vacation fishing trip with her teacher and 5th Grade Buddy! Thanks CES!
Our day was far from over. Back at the Bay St Louis Harbor, I cleaned the fish while Margot terrorized Brady (he is such a good sport). Out of no where, my old buddy Mike Reso and his two girls Maddy and K K walked up to say hello. I had to dump the fish heads outside the harbor, so I invited them to take a boat ride. We got the McCaws on their way, and loaded up the kiddos for a quick idle into open water. Mike told me the girls had never really been on a boat, he also told me they have never caught a fish. Over the years, Mike has been one my best friends, many years ago my boss, and my families financial planner. Margot and Mikes girls have been friends since before they could walk, so Margot and I had a brief meeting. Margot was asking if she could go play on the beach with her friends while I picked up the boat. I asked my lil buddy if she wanted to bring her friends out for a quick fish trip. She replied "Dad, are we even allowed take two fishing trips in one day"? We let the girls finish off the left over doughnuts, and went back for more! Since those shorelines were the hottest thing we fished, we went right back to it. Maddy's FIRST CAST, she hooked the biggest flounder we have seen this year! K K got a rat red on her FIRST CAST! It was all go and no quit after that. The girls were hooking fish, netting fish, collecting samples and screaming their little heads off. Margot and her hot pink Okuma Trio 30 spinning reel got the big fish of the afternoon. It was a group effort, and we landed the big red. It was an every cast bite for about an hour. Mike and I just kept the hooks baited, net ready and a steady supply of Oreos, water and sunscreen going. The girls and Mike still got to play on the beach while I picked up the boat. Absolutely one of the most memorable and enjoyable days I have ever had on the water.
Margot longest day on the water prior to this was about 4 hours. When we put away the boat and got ready to head home she had done close to 8 HOURS! She was like a sunburnt zombie. I had to just about pour her into the truck to take her home. Smelly, red faced and covered in sand at 5pm in the afternoon, she stared out the truck window and said, "That was fun Dad, can you please take me to the Waffle House". Yes Dear....

What a wild Spring it has been so far. With the record flooding, crazy winds and rain. Mother Nature has been making us work for it. Luckily, we have never been afraid of a little work.
Captain Kenny, Chef Frank and myself spent most of last week out at Cat Island. Before that adventure, we were able to have a little fun on the near shore fishing.
I got a last minute call from a crew in town for Spring Break. Mr Bobby Lentz was enjoying some time on the Redneck Riviera. The weather made things challenging, but he just wanted to get his boys on some pullers. We were able to set up on the leeward sides of some of the reefs. Kenny was there with the Riefer crew, and Captains Ray and Brian joined us with the two boat Ginn crew. It was about the only option we had, and thankfully it paid off. It would become a sheepshead massacre for the morning. We had kids on just about every boat (some big kids too), and it was perfect. A few of the boats got to tangle with some larger drum as well. Got lemons and made lemonade, even if it was in rough dirty water. Kennys crew and my crew had flocks of sheeps in the 20's
Bobby had such a good time that he booked a second day. I was rolling with the my old pal John Church so Kenny got to take them. We got much better weather and were able to explore a little more. Bobby brought another boat load of family members and they were set up perfect on the reefs. The water was moving through the cuts and the fish seemed to be feeding much better. We were holding our own with a couple of reds, drum and sheepshead. It seemed like every time we looked at Kennys boat though, they had another fish or two going in the net. We burned through a lot of shrimp, hooks, leads and corks, but you gotta pay to play fishing those reefs...
Thursday though Sunday, we had our first big trip to the Cat Island House this year. We can't lie, the weather was down right snotty. One evening we were blasted by winds in excess of 55mph! All the furniture on the down stairs deck got blown into a pile. Despite the horrific conditions, we never let it stop our good time. It turned out to be one of our most fun trips with a very cool crew. Mike C and his family and friends were all about making the most of it. Heck, they even brought the family dog! If it was too rough to fish, they explored the island. If it was raining, we played games under the house. If it got chilly we played inside or watched movies. As usual, Chef Frank "From the Westbank" hit a Grand Slam Homerun on the food. We had jumbo boiled shrimp, chicken n sausage gumbo, shrimp n corn bisque, ribeye steaks, oysters, and fried fish. The breakfasts and desserts were enough to hold you over for the entire day. One of the windier days we even caught our own meal. It took for ever with the cast net in the high dirty water, but we caught enough mullet to bait some crab traps. On a two day soak, we caught over 60 big blue crabs! Chef Frank had them boiling minutes after we caught them. What little fishing we did, was around Cat Island. We caught mostly sheepshead but honestly this trip we probably fished the least amount out of any of our trips out there. Even in lousy weather, it almost impossible to have a bad trip at the Cat Island House.
While we were out there, the boys were hiding from the winds and making a good showing of it. Capt Matt was able to knock the heck out of the fish on Thursday. He found a big nest of drum, reds, sheeps and trout on the near shore reefs. Joe and his family were treated to just about an every cast bite in the calm seas that morning. Sounded like Matt had a short trip fishing, but a long afternoon cleaning fish that day.
On the windier days Capt Darrien, Ray and Brian hid back in the Bay. They said the flooded rivers must have pushed the fish out, because they was snappin! I didn't believe it when they told me, but they said the redfish were stacked like chord wood. They could barely get through the rat reds, the boys said they probably caught over 100(mostly undersized)! They were able to wrangle some slot sized fish, small trout and even a couple flounders and sheepshead. Sounded like the weekend crews were enjoying the constant action to go with their "adult beverages".
This has been one of the tougher early springs to fish in a long time. The flooded rivers should level out soon, and things will be getting back to normal shortly. In the mean time, we are just going with what is generating the best action and most fun. We are all looking forward to getting some breaks in this weather and getting down to the LA Marsh. Till then, we will be makin it do what it do, and enjoying what ever fishing opportunities we are offered.

While I was down in Tampa last week, for a fisheries management meeting, the boys got to have a little fun. Most of the stuff they has been doing has been in close. The winds and seas have forced us to do things closer to home. No matter, we have still been gettin it dun and havin fun.
Capt Matt did a number on the reds, drum and sheephead with the Gentry crew earlier in the week. They were able to move around, and explore more areas. Seems like most everything we can get to is holding fish. Some days, things are just harder to get to...
Finally got to make a run across the MS Sound, into the LA Marsh. This was a trip with Shore Things Founder, Capt Mike Thompson. Magic Mike dusted off his 23 Parker and took his sons. I got to take the his "Outlaw" In-Laws. Eric, Jordan and Jacob, from Kansas rode with me. Eric wanted trout, and the "Jordy" wanted to catch a big fish. Was lucky enough to pull it off. The few cleaner pockets of water we found had trout in them. Was pleased to see very few throw backs. Live shrimp and artificial worked fine, under the Boat Monkey popping corks. We caught Jordans bull reds off both as well. Even wrangled a few sheephead. Mikey and the cut up crew did well on the bull reds also. Always a treat to fish along side my man Mike, but an even better treat when my boat out fishes his.
None of the stuff we fished looked "right". There was not much bait, the water was high, and it was murky. Still, the fishing was decent enough to get excited for things to come. Its only mid March, historically a sub-par trout fishing time of year. We try to always a see a half full glass, and it looks like big things coming Spring!
While we were out in the Marsh, Captains Kenny and Matt were doin it to it close to home. Kenny had the Fillman crew and Matt the Munn crew. Business as usual for those guys. The their day bowed up on the drums, reds and sheeps. Think Capt Matts crew even put a couple of nice trout in the box. This time of year, that near shore trip is hard to beat.
Monday was a day for Heroes. You had to be a bit of hero to be out in those conditions, but I actually had a real American Hero on my boat. My old buddy, Army Lieutenant Colonel Scott Emmel was out for the day. His "cooler than a polar bears toenails" mother Mrs Linda joined us. It was our only chance to get him on the water before he heads back for another tour over seas. It was windy and it was rough, but we made it work. We set up next to Capt Kenny, fishing the Donner Party. We were making a small dent in the sheepshead population, but Kenny and his crew were punishing them. They were set up perfectly in the rough seas, and were able to hold very close to the structure. The Mighty Capt Matt was out with the Dynamic Duo of Don and JC. These boys landed in a nest of angry red fish. Matt said it was ridiculous, that almost all were rats. They stayed and worked and shorelines, opting for the calmer waters. Plenty of action, but way more throw backs than keepers.

Scheduled some days off so we could get some much needed work done. Capt Matt was able to fish this past week. He ran a crew to the LA Marsh for an easy limit of red fish. Of course, the days we schedule off, we get some fantastic weather. Well, it was now or never so we got er dun!
The Shore Thing World Headquarters in Bayou Caddy, MS is the new recipient of a second covered cleaning shed. Now when the 7 boats return at the same time,  ALL the guides and customers will be able to enjoy the shade. Only took half a day to put it up.
Jumped on a plane to head up to Washington DC to do a little chatting with some of the great Congressmen and Senators of MS. Just trying to do what we can to help out our hard working charter fishermen. Only got to stay for a day, because I had an important speaking engagement I was not gonna miss...
My daughter wanted me to come speak in front of her Kindergarten Class at Coast Episcopal. She and I luckily have done a few of these fish talks in the past, so we had this one down pat. Could not have done it without her help. Special thanks to her teachers Mrs McCaw and Mrs Brennan for letting us do our presentation.
Months ago we scheduled a work weekend at the Cat Island House. Again, we got incredible weather. From Friday morning to Sunday we cleaned the property and the house from top to bottom. At one point we had over 20 people helping. We even got our ladies out there to join the clean up effort. Chef Frank and his lovely wife Debbie saved the day and helped with the food. Capt Kenny brought a ton of venison and a sack of oysters! Several of our guides will be spending all of spring and most of summer out there. We will just have to wait and see if we book more trips this fall... Either way, the house, yard, and pier are ready for business!!!
Special Thanks to these folks for Helping with the Dock Work and Island Work.
