BIG LIMITS OF SOLID TROUT ALL LAST WEEK

Big week for all of our guys last week catching limits of trout most every day. Calm morning wind allowed lots of our guys to get off shore to catch quick limits most days last week. Guides Zach Mitchell and Jeff Vincent reported good solid fish coming from reefs in the cove and as far north as Turner Bay. Vincent allows the best plastics bait have been Hackberry Hustlers and Mirror lure's little john under a cork. Fishing on the bottom with live bait at the Cameron jetties will bring you big tackle busting Redfish and lots of fun. If you want to get in on some of the VERY hot (and I don't mean weather) action the fish are here so call toll free at 888.762.3391 and check availability. Don't miss this opportunity to come fish at the "Speckled Trout Capital of the World" with one of our professional guides.

SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER - BRING YOUR YOUNGSTERS FISHING NOW

WE HAVE ROOM AND THE CATCHING IS GREAT RIGHT NOW

Each year after the 4th of July and up until mid-August we have some open dates before school starts. Historically the end of July and August are great times to catch fish in our System. The big Cameron jetties as well as the beach front are fun and productive areas during this time. Take this last chance to bring your kids to the lake before the grind of school starts up.

Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and check availability.

FOURTH OF JULY ADVENTURE TO LOS SUENOS RESORT & MARINA IN COSTA RICA

HR&G owner Kirk Stansel and world known fisherman Roy F. Wood and their wives had a little R & R as well as catching some fish at Maverick sport fishing. In addition to the many billfish that are caught daily by the FLY BOATs the pair opted to catch grouper, snapper and Roy F. Wood even landed a huge 50 pound Rooster fish. What a fight ? They had a great time but we were happy  to have them back.

I was looking for something to read the other day and ran across a cook book named "Creole for the Soul". It was published by Our Lady Queen of Heaven School in Lake Charles Louisiana. Not only were the recipes outstanding but it was very entertaining reading. Here on of the recipes that sounding good to me. I will let you know.

Spicy Grits with Shrimp

  • 1 cup of whipping cream
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup of quick-cooking grits
  • 1 pound of fresh shrimp, cooked, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup of shredded pepper jack cheese
  • Garlic power to taste
  • Louisiana hot pepper sauce to taste
  • Finely chopped green onion tops

Bring the water, cream, 1/4 cup of butter and salt to a boil in a large sauce pan over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the grits. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes or until the mixture is smooth, stirring constantly. Stir in the shrimp, pepper jack cheese and garlic power. Stir in butter to taste along with the hot sauce. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more and sprinkle with a little more pepper jack and green onions. Let me know how you like it.
