TAKE A KID FISHING!!!
I love it, Grayson only broke one rod, which Professional traded out, and him and his little sister talked to each other all day over the VHF radio as she was on the other boat.

And they had a blast.

Grayson's caught his 1st speckled trout, not this one, he was catching fish all day!

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Crazy weather, fishing and "other things" occurred this past week. Got the pictures to prove some of the stories, but you are just gonna have to take my word on others...
The Sport Trail trailers logged some miles, the boats were all over the place. We fished the reefs, bridges, CAT island and LA Marsh. Water has still been dirty most days, but we are getting to that magic 70-72 degree mark. I can only imagine once this last front gets through, and things settle down, it should be game freaking on!!!

Had a good one on Thursday. One of my High School buddies was in town. Steve Saucier, his Dad and his two brothers(Donny and Jimmy) were with me for a great trip to the LA Marsh. Got to catch up what is going on in his world, and catch some nice fish in the process. We logged some miles doing the stick and move through the marsh. Water was super low for the first part of the morning, but it was clean. Worked on some nice reds and sheepshead. Never did find a wide open bite, but grabbed fish at most every stop. The trout were spotty, but they are getting better and better every trip. Even in the low water, we grabbed some keepers on the Boat Monkey Popping corks with Matrix platics under them. Opening night or salt and pepper were the top producers. Did find some bull reds mixed in with them as well. Back at the dock, we found one of the most amazing and disturbing things inside one of the reds. We almost always check the stomachs of the fish we catch, just to see what they chewing on. Well... one of the smaller bulls stomachs was about to pop. With Capt Matt and the Sauciers at my side, I pulled a freaking PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE  out of the reds stomach(got pics too). It was a 12oz bottle that had been crushed with the cap back on. I have no theories or explanations, only a remedy. Keep your trash in a sealed compartments. Fish seemed to be in good shape, but I don't know how long that bottle was in there. Glad we caught him, no way that guy was gonna digest that thing.
Capt Kenny was workin a near shore trip with Mrs Norma and Mrs Lois. Business as usual for them on the puppy drum and sea monsters. Kenny said the big ones were making them work. They were schooled and spooled by the majority of the big black drum.

Friday we had three boats out, two on a near shore an one in the marsh. Capt Kenny and Capt Alex were making a good day of it on the big drum, puppy drum and red fish. Alex was with Team Kada and Kenny was with Team McKellar. Very happy to see more and more reds on the near shore trips. I actually enjoy eating the puppy drum more, but I know most people we fish really like the reds. Just glad to have both available so close to the dock. Got nice weather most of the morning and both boats were able to cover plenty of ground. The water is still dirty in close from the flooded rivers, but the black drum and reds don't seem to mind.

I was with Team Pfister, a boat load of Shore Thing Veterans. Mike and the boys have been fishing with us for right at a decade. We have had some amazing trips over the years. No matter what the catch, we ALWAYS have a blast. When we got close to the marsh, Mike gave me a nudge and said, "keep a sheepshead hole on standby". We checked several spots, and caught a couple reds and trout, but did not load the box. Hit one spot on the way home for a wide open "LAMB OF THE SEA" sheepshead slaughter. Took about 45 minutes to top off the 120 cooler on live and dead shrimp. Left em snapping and hooked it home.

Saturday, Capt Matt had the Clint Price crew with him for a trip to the LA Marsh. He said finding trout was not a problem, finding keeper was. The did pick through the lil ones to get some keepers, but Matt said it was tricky. They were able to locate some nice reds, and happy to report they were free of plastic rubbish.

Me and Capt Alex were out at Cat Island with Bob Condia, kayak fishing. Had our work cut out for us, but it is too much fun kayaking out there. High dirty water and windy did make for the best conditions for Bobs fly rod, but we stuck with it. We would make super long drifts through the bayous. Instead of paddling or peddling back into the wind, Capt Alex would run the boat around to pick us up. Saw a couple reds, hooked a few and landed even fewer. Still a cool day at the island, pretty hard to have a bad time out there. Capt Alex saved the day, but he might have saved my boat on Sunday...

Busy morning on Sunday. Captains Matt, Alex and myself were running and gunning to get bait, ice, fuel. All trips were run in the Bay to hide from the howling 20mph SE winds. I was simply out of my routine, and made a very very careless mistake. I always tell people to do to the same thing every time when getting your boat ready, so you don't make mistakes. Well, while getting ready to launch, I ran into one of my old deckhands from Venice. Got side tracked catching up with him, and did not put the plug in my boat. I have had to pull a plug on a boat a few times, to save it from sinking, but I have NEVER had to put one in to stop it from sinking. Got very lucky with having Alex still at the launch. Threw him my keys, and kept the boat moving. Cooler than a cucumber, Alex backed the trailer in and got me out of trouble. She drained for a good 5 minutes, got back in the water and went fishing. Jeff and Mike were pretty good sports about the snafu and were just thrilled to be fishing. Jeff who is from Michigan told me all his fishing spots are frozen so this was a treat. We did great on the big sea monsters, but only nabbed one slot red. Capt Matt with Team Weinges did good on the puppy drum, bull reds, and stumbled on 5 flounders! Capt Alex was with Mrs Porshe and they were staying busy with the reds. Just glad all the crews were all able to make a day of it in less than perfect conditions. So what did learn today class? Don't litter, take your time getting your boat ready, never travel anywhere without Capt Alex...

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Capt Matt an I were able to sneak out a few hours on Tuesday morning before that front came through. Team Santillo was with Capt Matt, they were in town all the way from Illinois. I had a last minute booking with David, Henry and Marshall from Atlanta. Keeping ahead of the front and playing it safe, both crews fished the reefs. Capt Matts crew got the jump on us, and we got to the first reef, they were hooked up with some nice puppy drum. We set up shop a on the other side, and went to work. Young Henry struck first blood with a nice red fish. We pulled the hook and broke off a few big UFO's. Capt Matt and his were just steady picking away puppy drum and we did a nice red go into the net. The next thing to hit was a massive bull red. The adults passed the rod to young Henry and we almost lost him and the pole several times during the battle. Took for ever, but Henry did a great job and landed the biggest fish of the day.

On a day that we almost canceled both trips, due to weather, both boats did fantastic. Played the wind and not once got sprayed or pounded by waves. We did loose a fair amount of tackle on the rocks, but it was well worth it. We came in with a box of red fish and released several big sea monster black drum. Capt Matt and Team Santillo did very well on the puppy drum. They released a couple of big black drum and boxed some good reds. Just used the Carolina rigs with dead shrimp on the bottom.

FYI, we have been using the weather app WIND FINDER. You can get it on line as well www.windfinder.com it has many local stations and plenty offshore. It gives an hourly breakdown of the wind and waves, and really helps with the fronts.The NOAA forecast had the entire day blown with winds at 20+mph. We use at least four weather service and basically average them to try and get the best read we can. On a day like Tuesday when there might a few hours of good weather, it can save the day. Of course we had to rule out a trip to the LA Marsh, but it was certainly a win.

In response to RJ

The tournament was won with a 6+lb. Speck and I took 2nd with a 4.98lb. because I'm a nice guy and told the winner to put his boat back in the water and go to the weigh station by water (like the rules stated). Didn't even get a thank you. I guess nice guys finish 2nd!!!LOL!!! Next tourney I will know the rules and all others better know them too because I won't be offering up any help...after all it is a competition.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

We did this show last August with the crew from Reel South Hunting. They wanted to catch a few sharks and look for triple tail. Seldom do you get nice weather with a video camera on the boat, but we got it perfect.
The video shows some crazy early morning footage at Bordages Marina. Timmy is hand feeding alligator gar! We actually caught a few trout at first light, but the sharks kept eating them. Switched gears to shark fishing and did great on them. Weather was too perfect not to go looking for triple tail. The water was about as clean as we ever see. It was glass calm and there was no current what so ever. Some of the footage you can actually see the shrimp trying to get away from the triple tail(and fail). For a specialty hunting show, these guys hit a home run with this one. The footage is incredible, heck I even enjoyed the music.
If you ever wanted to see how we triple tail fish, watch this show. Granted, we only see conditions this perfect a few times of year but it is a great instructional. Looking forward to the next time we get the Reel South Hunting Crew back on the boat. It is almost a full 30 min show, with no commercials. Here is the link to the website and show:

If you can not click on the link, just cut and paste it, or Google Reel South Hunting. Both will bring you straight to it. Well worth the watch.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA




In between the wind and rain, we have had some pretty good days on the water. In trying to insure that our customers get the best possible weather days, we have been busy scheduling and rescheduling trips to try and get on the best fishing we can. Capt Matt was on the tail end of the rain earlier in the week. How fresh was the water near Bayou Caddy you ask? While catching small reds in the broken marsh near the dock, they caught a 4 pound fresh water channel cat fish!

We had Scott, Ram and Jimmy in town for three days this past week. The boys got a little bit of everything, and got to fish with three of our guides. I got the maiden voyage and kept them in close to fish the reefs and bridges. Sunday we had some howling winds first thing in the morning, so we pushed our departure time back to around noon. We made the right call, and were able to fish in nice conditions all afternoon long. We were mainly looking for the big sea monster black drum. Found some good ones, but we sacrificed plenty of tackle getting them. The fish were big, strong and stubborn but we made a good showing.

Monday, Capt Kenny took the treacherous trio out to the marsh. The boys were up for the challenge and put a hurting on the big bay snappers. Sounded like Kenny had to cut them off, to make room for some red fish. He said the water was still murky but they were able to grab some slot reds for garnish before heading in. Since we knew where Kenny fished and the water was murky, Capt Matt an I took our crews the other way. Matt had the Three Amigos for their last day, and I was joined by the gang from Aqua Green Fish Hatchery. They needed a few more bull reds to top off another breeding tank.

Capt Matt and the boys got a 10 minute head start on us, we had to load up the tanks. When we got with in radio range, Capt Matt said they were on the bull reds. They were chunking Boat Monkey popping corks with Matrix Vortex Shad under them. Seeing as how he was sitting in fairly clean water, we did not ask for an invite to the party. We joined them, got one good big male in the tank, made a few drifts and came up with nuttin. We knew the winds would be building later in the day, so we scrambled to get things going. Got our second big bull male just blind casting banks with the popping cork rigs. Did get some slot fish in the while on the hunt, and were too small to take breed, so the boys took them for feed...

Had to jump back to where we started, it was the cleanest water and it had bait. Even with the building winds, were fishing a leeward bank that kept the water from murking up, and seemed to keep the fish pinned in one little area. We were able to grab the two big females we needed, released another big one and even got treated to a good trout bite. The trout were hittin every cast, but they had plenty of small ones mixed in. Got em plenty enough for dinner and sent the big reds to the love shack at Aqua Green. Capt Matt rolled back to the dock with a decent pile of slot reds, to close out a great three day adventure for Ram, Scott and Jim.

I grabbed a couple hours of sleep and jumped on a plane to Washington DC. Got a chance to sit in on some meetings with our Congressman and one Senators, trying to help the charter fleet in the Gulf. Only got to stay for a few hours before hopping a plane right back home, thinking I had to fish the next morning. Well worth the trip though, we were welcomed with open arms in all the meetings.

Special thanks to the offices of:

Senator Wicker

Congressman Nunnelee

Congressman Palazzo

Congressman Harper

While on the Hill, Capt Matt was out in the LA marsh taking advantage of some nice weather and great fishing. Jake and the boys got lucky on the forecast and had great day in the marsh. He said the trout fishing was hot, but had plenty of small ones to pick through. He did say the big bulls were still there and still very very hungry. With this south wind, and warm air coming, I think Spring fishing should kick into over drive in the next two weeks. If you want to get in on it, drop us a line...

We have had boats scattered all over the Northern Gulf of Mexico the last few days. Some nice trout have been coming in, but they are making us work for them in the LA Marsh. The near shore stuff has been good , even finding a few trout there too.

Wanted to thank the good folks at the GCRL for a great evening at the Catch More Fish with Science event on Thursday. Was pleasantly surprised to see close to 100 people out in the crowd. The local high school in Ocean Springs even cooked after the event, and served up some delicious seafood for everyone. Capt Matt will be speaking at one in a few weeks, and we will keep you posted as it gets closer.

Friday, all the boats headed to the marsh in the nice weather. We had boats from one end to the other. Water has still been murky from the windy days, and high river. Just have to work a little harder to get what we need. Happy to report, Capt Darren, fishing with the Lineburger crew, found some very nice trout. They were pulling into the skinning shed as I was pulling out, but I snapped a picture of their catch. He had close to 20 fish, but not a one of them needed to be measured. The two younger anglers he had on the boat were just as thrilled about the massive sheepshead they caught.

I was back in the ponds with Christian Chauvin from New Orleans. Was able to fish anywhere I wanted, due to the higher water, but it came with a price. The water that moved in was dirty, and made sight casting almost impossible. We spent our day pounding the banks with spinner baits. The first pond we worked had bait and fish crashing the banks. Thought we were gonna work em over early, and even threw the top water mouse for the first part of the day. Got a few blow ups on it, but opted out for the spinner bait. Took longer than we thought, but got what we needed. Don't think any of the fish were the same size. We kept fish from 17 inches to 30 inches.

Capt Kenny, Capt Matt and Capt Tom were easing and picking through the marsh as well. They all came back with trout, reds, and sheepshead.

Saturday was some good fishing and some incredible weather. We had 6 boats out, some fished in close and others went to the marsh. Capt Alex with the Hebe crew did not have to move very much. Every time we called them to check in, he just said they are steady coming over the rail. Not leaving them to find them, they topped off the box with plenty of sheepshead and puppy drum.

Capt Kenny was the last boat to the leave dock, but that did not matter for David Stanley and his crew from Waynesboro, MS. The only trouble they seemed to have was keeping the big sea monster black drum out of the structures.They broke off 4 big ones, but did not miss a beat on the keeper sized drum, sheepshead and even found a nice flounder.

Capt Darren and Capt Brett were making a good go of it in the LA Marsh. Darren was back with the Lineburger crew, and Capt Brett had the Sanford tribe. Both crews had younger anglers which made for great day, catching some big speckled trout and some massive sheepshead. Brett said young Alex an Ashely did great and were good sports.

I had a quick trip in close with my good buddy Chris Walters and his girl friend Effie. Chris deals in tackle, he makes it, sells it and most certainly uses it. His gal friend Effie is from Canada(Americas Hat). They were up for a little day in the Bay, but it only took a couple hours to fill the box. Literally dropped anchor and started bending rods. Gotta say, it was one of the better near shore trips I have been on in long time. Effie had the hot hand, she grabbed most of the red fish, while Chris an I kept the puppy drum flying over the side. 2 hours into it, the lid on the fish box was not closing. We pointed the boat to the dock and called it a day. Very fun day with the happy couple, we closed with 8 reds, 8 drum and 1 lone trout.

Had a good one on Tuesday with the boys from Aqua Green fish Hatchery. After our streak was broken on the last trip, we had to get our stats up. Lil chilly but we bundled up and I brought my secret weapon. Capt Matt Tusa, the "Fish Finder" joined us for a trip to find 4 male bull reds. When we got near the LA Marsh our confidence was pretty low. The water was dark brown, it was overcast, cold, with a light chop. We just pushed on until we found some leeward banks with the cleaner water. Put some mile on the odometer, but it was worth it. Before we had the trolling motor over the side, we were seeing big reds. One 500 yard stretch of bank with a shelly bottom in 2 foot of water was to be our playground. Finally started to see packs of 6 to 10 fish, and they were hungry. Once the sun broke through and the wind laid down to nothing, it was all over. We got our 4 males in the first drift. Some came off tight lined soft plastics(Matrix Vortex in pearl or opening night), and others went for the Boat Monkey popping corks with the same soft plastics under them. We tried to tip everything with a piece of dead shrimp(insurance). Made 2 more drifts to cull out some of the smaller bulls with larger ones to guarantee they were sexually mature. Fishing for science or not, you can't beat sight casting to those big bulls on light tackle in shallow water.

To be honest, I have not kept in touch with Capt Matt or Capt Darren since that day. They have both fished but I have not gotten the details. The phone, emails, boat maintenance, honey doos and other adventures have kept me going full throttle. The calendar for the next three months is filling up nicely. If you have any plans of fishing this spring or summer, please let us know. We have plenty of boats rolling this year, but don't want anyone to miss out. The fishing this Spring looks to be fantastic!!!

Thursday through Saturday we had 20 boat loads of people out! Thursday and Friday we had a huge corporate trip from Black Oak Gin Company, out of Arkansas. These cotton farmers were up for anything and the weather dictated both days fishing locations. The winds were still blowing Thursday morning, so we opted to wait till the afternoon to take the boys out in the Bay. Had to bring in some help but we got 7 boats out. Myself, and Captains Kenny, Matt, Alex, Darren, Brett and Tom left from the world famous Bay Marina. We had boats scattered all over the coast and Bay but we made a good showing of it. The water has been pretty dirty in close from all the rain, but we just had to stick and move. Capt Brett found even a few nice trout at the reefs, some reds too. Capt Matt and Kenny did well on the slot reds fishing some shore lines near the river. The rest of us worked on the sheepshead and puppy drum. Got in late in the afternoon, but sent the boys to grab some dinner while we cleaned a pile of fish.

Friday was much nicer weather so everyone went to the marsh. Capt Jimmy Ray got joined the gang headed across. I had to head out the islands to look for bull reds for the fish hatchery. Seas were calm so we headed out to Ship  and Cat Island. Water was very clean on East ship island, but did not see any bulls. The black drum were pretty thick, and we had some fun sight casting to them. Never found the big schools of bulls, and only saw a few singles. I realized while fishing East Ship Island, that I had not been out there since the early 1990's. I only remembered it because I went to a Pink Floyd concert later that evening(Division Bell Tour). Long day and we struck out on the bulls. The other 4 trips I have made with the Aqua Green boys we got our limit of bulls every time. That made for the humble pie we ate very tough to swallow...

The 7 boats in the marsh we do a little bit of everything. Some were grabbing a few red fish. A few of the crews were picking through some specks, and others were doing battle with the mutant sheepshead. Some of the crews came in early, but most made a full day of it. The guys that found the trout said they were sporadic. They were trying to call each other in on bites, but they would end just as fast as they started. Finding the clean water has been the trick out there. With the shifting winds, the clean water keeps moving in an out of the marsh. Water has still been chilly, but every time the boats the boats have been over to the marsh, the trout fishing has gotten better and better.

Saturday we thought the rain might send us in early, but we were still able to get 5 boats out. Capt Darren was fishing with the Allen crew. Capt Alex was fishing with the Boulton crew. Myself, Capt Matt and Capt Kenny were fishing a very "animated" bachelor party from Georgia. I had the groom to be on my boat and was happy when he locked into a massive black drum. Excited to see the sea monsters have moved in for the spring spawn. 60 degree water seems to be the magic number for those brutes to show up. All three boats in the bachelor party group landed sea monsters. The boys wanted to be close together so they could scream words of encouragement, none of which I  repeat on this site. They also has several "Team Building" exercises that involved them shot gunning adult beverages. Towards the end of our day we tied all the boats up together so they could just cut up with each other. Each boat only kept a few sheepshead and puppy drum for dinner. We called ahead to Shaggys Restaurant in Biloxi  to let them know they would bringing fresh fish for them to cook. The party busses came and picked the crews up at the launch and lord only knows what kind of fun those boys got into that night? At least helped them get a great day on the water and a good meal that evening.

Captains Alex and Darrens crews both returned with a good box of sheeps and puppys. Just glad everyone caught a good mess of fish and no one got rained on.

shows a map of a cat island in Alabama
north of Dauphin island instead of the
one that Dr. Don Gaddy has on Cat island
MS. Many people unfamiliar with it would
get confused by the map; any way you can
fix that? it may do that on my post as well. maybe it is something for Mike Lane to fix?

Spent most of last week down in St Petersburg doing some work with the Gulf Council. Caught the late flight home and met the boys early Friday to head to Hattiesburg. The Sportsman show was a great time, we gave it two thumbs up. Saw a pile of old customers and hopefully met plenty of new ones. There was lots of stuff to do for the kiddos, they had the most fun out of anyone. Capt Matts son and my daughter went rock climbing, rode the mechanical bull, took a spin in a monster truck, and went fishing in the trout pond. Very nice having our families up there, they seldom join all of us at these things.

Capt Tom was holding down the fort while we were up north. He said the north side of the marsh was full of dirty brown water. Once he found the clean water, the trout and reds were not far behind. Just hearing a good report of trout and reds coming to the dock was a treat.

After a couple of winks, Captains Matt, Alex, Kenny and myself hit the water on Monday. The other guys stayed in the bay and I was out in the LA Marsh. Sounded like they did great on the reefs and bridges. They all had boat loads of kids in town for spring break. The boats all came in with good hauls of puppy drum, sheepshead, reds, flounder and a few speckled trout. They were scattered all over the Hancock County shorelines, but happy to hear the fishing was good at most stops. Live and dead shrimp was the ticket for a good day in close for the three boats.

I was out in the marsh with the crew from Aqua Green fish hatchery. The last time they came we caught plenty of bull reds for them, but almost all were big females. This time we were after big healthy males. Finding fish was not the problem, Capt Tom gave me the keys to the castle. Finding the right size males was the issue. We must of released 15 fish before we found the magic three big boys we were looking for. The reds stood out like sore thumbs on the shell bottoms in clear water. We used the Boat Monkey popping corks and Matrix shads(lemon drop and opening night) to get them. Sight casting for those big reds has to be one of the cooler things we do, and it was good. Even got treated to a flat calm ride home.

Capt Kenny, Matt and Tom braved the elements to get in a few hours of fishing Tuesday morning. Only option was to fish in close with the rain on its way. They made it happen and all came in with great fish boxes of drum, sheepshead and trout. Seems like everyday the trout fishing is getting better and better. I know when we came in on Monday, the water temps were in the low 60's. Hopefully it will not be much longer before the trout fishing busts wide open. In the mean time, the near shore fishing is certainly keeping everyone busy. With the youngsters out of school for Spring Break, that is a great trip to take. With the short runs and steady action, it is certainly a great way to spend the day with the lil ones.

Went out with Capt. Sonny yesterday and had a great day fishing. Even though it is early in the season, Capt. Sonny was able to get us on some fish. The only fishing I can normally do this time of year in Colorado has to do with drilling a hole through a lot of ice, since I was visiting Mississippi, I figured I should be able to get some fishing in because you don’t seem to have to drag an auger out on the water with you like you have to this time of year in Colorado. Anyway, I did a web search and I found this website and read through the posts and after reading some of the posts from Shore Thing Charters, I went to their website to check them out. These guys are great to work with, I sent them an email and they responded quickly and then I gave them a call and was able to get something set up for this past Sunday (March 2). The weather was great on Sunday and fishing was a blast. I have to admit, I think we lost more than we were able to bring on the boat but that was our fishing skills and no experience with the types of fish in the Gulf waters, either way it was a lot of fun. We were able to land a black drum, a puppy drum, a couple spotted sea trout, and five really nice sheep head. If I get a chance to fish this summer in Mississippi, I am definitely going to give Shore Thing Charters a call again. Capt. Sonny was great. If you are thinking about doing some fishing on the Mississippi Gulf Shore, look up Shore Thing Charters.

Some very fun days on the water this week. Capt Matt found a few trout down in the LA Marsh with the Tipton crew. This was before the cold snap but things look like they are moving towards a spring pattern(sooner or later). Matt said they were able a find a few trout over clean water, he did say the water got close to 60 degrees. The elusive trout fell for live shrimp under the Boat Monkey popping corks. Since the water was warm and clean they were able to find some reds that were not deep inside the marsh.
Thursday we had two boats in the Bay for a quick near shore trip. I had Jeff an Annette from Minnesota. Capt Kenny had the Kilby crew from Pennsylvania. These snow birds were basking in our 50 degree "warm air". Me and Capt Kenny were bundled up wishing Spring would just hurry up and get here. Fishing was good, and both crews made a good showing on the sheepshead and puppy drum. Did have a few small reds and flounder to mix things up. We both left late to take advantage of the calmer seas but it was tricky to fish. The tide was switching over and the winds were light and variable. The boats were spinning on the anchor and made for tricky casting. Once the water got moving and the boats stayed put, it was game on. Dead shrimp worked just as good as the live once the water got moving.
Friday due to Mardi Gras and some last minute scheduling conflicts we were all dressed up with no where to go. Capt Alex dropped his Blazer Bay in the water and brought some new tackle we had to try out. Since we have been pulling baby nutria rats out of red fish stomachs, we figured why not "match the hatch". Live Target makes a life like mouse that is actually a pretty good top water bait. I threw one all day long, and even nick named mine Mr Jangles(he was a circus mouse). With an Okuma V30 spooled with 20lb braid, you could launch this thing. Even in dirty choppy water, the lil mouse worked like a charm. Pushing through the hours of heckling from Matt an Alex, I put plenty reds in the box for the boat. Kind of sadistic watching those reds smash that little critter, but heck, it worked. The peanut gallery chunked spinner baits and tight lined soft plastics. They did well, but did have the showmanship of the vermin I was throwing. To each his own...

I cannot speak for CCA leaders of MS or LA but I can speak for myself... a member of CCA MS and an owner of a fishing camp in SE LA since the late 90's.

I think sediment diversions must be used in conjunction with dredging in order for all coastal erosion efforts to be sustained over the long haul (the next, 25, 50, 100 years +).  That said, the sediment diversions must be used responsibly and strategically....  they are NOT a "magic bullet" that will kill the erosion issues all by themselves.

I fully respect the opinions of others (Mike Lane, George Ricks, etc...).  I just happen to disagree.  I think the sediment diversions must be ONE tool (of many tools) used to combat the coastal issues.  I'm not going to debate each side.  I have my opinions after doing my reading & research and I respectfully disagree with the opinion of some others.  I do not think any "less" of people like Mr. Lane and Ricks and others... I respect the hell out of them for standing up for what they believe in.  I just don't share the EXACT same beliefs.

CCA Mississippi,

Since you posted last week on the LA side of this site and avoided the questions from several, including Capt. Mark, I though I would ask you here:

What is CCA's official opinion on freshwater diversions as opposed to dredging in regards to the master plan?  For a group that is so vocal on conservation you guys have been avoiding answering this question.

Thanks to all who came out and fished this weekend. We had some nice fish hit the scales and raised some good scholarship and research money in the process. Here is the leaderboard for anyone who was not able to make it to the weigh in.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Big weekend for the boys, the two boats that fished the Stripes Spots and Dots(CCA, Coastal Angler and IP Casino) tournament at the Biloxi Boat Show did Fantastic!
I posted the results on the photo page, hope it uploads. It is on our site under the reports section too.
Capt Kennys crew and my crew were up for the challenge. Seldom do we fish tournaments and rodeos, we are usually booked way out for the weekends. This tournament was something different, but there was some serious money being thrown around too. Our old fishing buddy John Marquez with CCA Mississippi thought it would be a good idea to have a winter time trout, redfish and SHEEPSHEAD.
Truth be told, we were pretty much going for the sheepshead trophy and the $2500 first prize. For the past few weeks we have been catching and releasing huge sheeps minutes from the dock. Well, the two trips we had the week of the tourney were a bit discouraging. The fish were still there, but the really big ones seemed to have disappeared. I had a made a plan to go long but Kenny and the Bailey crew(James and son JJ) opted to grind it out close to home.
I had Shore Thing Platinum Plus member Nathan Guice and his son Tyler. Another Father and son duo joined them, their good friends Charlie Caplinger and his son Conner. By then end of the day we had logged 70 rough miles! Seas were not calm, and the usual mutant sheepshead we catch way down south were not there. Young Conner did get a few fish, but nothing we guessed would even come close to placing in the youth division. The last few hours of the day we fished close to Bay St Louis near Capt Kenny and the Bailey boys. They had a box full of fish(sheepshead, red fish, drum, flounder and 1 speckled trout). Doubt if they traveled more than 4 miles the entire day.
Action was much better closer to the shore and lil Tyler even got a nice 28" red fish. We got a few more decent sheepshead, but both Kenny an I thought our chances at any prizes were not good. I got a faint glimmer of hope when I talked to Dr Don Gaddy later in the afternoon. He had braved the seas like we did and fished the same general area we were in. He even told me he fished there the week before and it was covered up in monster sheepshead. Sounding beat up from the waves(like me), he said those big ones had just moved on.
Weigh in closed at 6pm at that is when the text messages and phone calls started pouring in. Turned out Kenny's crew, the Baileys were in the money and both our crews killed it in the youth division. Mr Bailey missed first place sheepshead by a couple hundredths of an ounce! He did get second place($750) but since the angler in first place was not in the calcutta, he took that as well. His son JJ took home 2nd place in the redfish and 2nd place in the speckled trout youth divisions. No money for the youth divisions but JJ got a mess of tackle and prizes.
The two young guns on my boat did phenomenal as well. Conner took first place and Tyler took 2nd place in the youth division for sheepshead. Conner also nabbed 1st place red fish in the youth division. Those two boys took home a truck load of fishing equipment.
Really enjoyed fishing this tournament, it seemed to have something for everyone. The categories with big fish, slot fish, stringers, and odd ball fish like the sheepshead I thought was brilliant. Big prize money and hefty tackle prizes for the youth divisions were big draws as well. I know two crews that will be fishing it next year...

Stripes, Specks and Dots:  Sounds like a great tournament with an excellent payout for Sheep.  There is good potential to win a good bit of money for a relatively small entry fee.  If they go, they will have the CCA membership in hand for when the STAR tournament registration starts (ALSO NOW) in preparation for one of the best paying tournaments on the coast this summer.  Well, well, well, IMHO, this is a great deal!

best of luck to all the participants.

And I'd like to fish the tournament, I just don't
want to be forced to join a lobbying organization
to do it.

If it was a legit tourney, I'd be in, but its not, its a
membership drive disguised as a tournament.

The vast majority of CCA members didn't
outright join the organization for the cause, they
were roped in during a disguised membership
drive and offered a discount on a tournament or
other event.

That speaks volumes about the merits of the
organization and its reach.  The membership
numbers are inflated, bogus, and propped up by
what amounts to bribes via giveaways, raffles,
and entry fee discounts.

Essentially, this tournament is full of sheep
chasing sheepshead lol!!!

How fitting is it that a long time CCA member like
Explorer comes onto the site and instantly
resorts to name calling and hurling personal
insults, while saying you shouldn't hate on
people.

Hypocrisy at its finest!  You certainly represent
the core values of the CCA well!

I am so sick of hearing commercial
fishermen, their relatives and
uninformed fools bitch about the CCA.  
Its OK not to want to be a member, but
stop with the constant bickering.  I
mean you sound like the clowns we have
in Congress - either your a
Republican't or a Demodon't.  Yes,
there is a business side to it, but
overall they try to do good.  I have
been a member since the days when it
was called the GCCA (I think that's
right, its been a hell of a while) and
we were fighting gill nets and if any
of you out there says that getting rid
of them was a bad thing then you are
delusional.  Look, its OK to have
different opinions, but don't hate the
person, hate the idea.  Good luck
fishing.

Let me try to explain the entry fee for the Stripes, Spots and Dots tournamet. It cost $25 bucks to be a member of CCA and $25 bucks to fish the event for a total of $50 bucks. If you are not a CCA member it cost you $40 bucks to fish the event. Therfore you pay $10 bucks less than a CCA member does. If you fish the star tournament this year you want have to pay the membership fee. It looks like a WIN WIN to me.

PJ, CCA tournaments have always been more about the organization catching fishermen than it is about fishermen catching fish.  If you don't like it don't join.  They are a lobbying organization, and they need money and high count member numbers for the cause.  It is what it is.  Hope they have a good "catch" on Saturday.
