THE FISHING IS AS HOT AS THE WEATHER HERE ON LAKE CALCASIEU
Typical July fishing will cap off this final week of the month. It seems that the trout are getting a little bigger and the Redfish have been big all along. Limits of trout are being caught all along the ship channel at most of the popular spots. From marker 71 south to the jetties have been producing good numbers of trout on live bait. Speaking of bait live shrimp have been a little hard to get so the early bucket at the bait house gets the bootie. Soft plastics under a popping cork have been good early in the morning and finger mullet when the sun gets up. Check out these pictures. Don’t miss out on this good fishing right now so call Tanya now at 888.762.3391 and get in on this SUPER trip offer (see below) until September 11th.

Saltwater Fishing Safety Tips
Saltwater fishing has its own set of challenges and rewards. Understanding the nuances of saltwater fishing as well as some basic saltwater fishing tips will help ensure that you have a successful and safe trip. Planning a trip with experienced fishermen or hiring a fishing guide who will walk you through each step of the process is a great place to start. You are more likely to avoid fishing accidents if you understand what to do when a fish bites and how to clean it. Also, familiarize yourself with the equipment and know how to set up your bait, line and reel correctly.
Always wear a life jacket and make sure each passenger wears one too. The coast guard requires that there is a life jacket for every person on board.
Only fish in permitted areas. If an area is “off limits” assume it is for your safety or to protect vegetation or wildlife.
Always purchase the appropriate fishing license and follow the rules on number of fish.
Choose your site and time of day carefully after looking at sun, moon, wind, tide, and weather reports.
Pack safety items such as water, flashlights, maps, and a cell phone or radio.
Always wear close toed shoes with good rubber grips.
Come prepared for an array of weather conditions. Dress in layers with cool clothes first, covered with warmer layers and then a water and wind protection outer layer.
Wear bug repellant and sunscreen. Bring a sun hat and sunglasses and keep your shoulders covered. Sunlight reflected off the water can intensify the chance of a sunburn.
The tools used to catch and prepare fish are sharp and should be handled carefully.
Be cautious when baiting or removing hooks
Keep fishing knives sharp and covered in a case when not in use.
Have someone teach you how to clean a fish safely.
Pack a first-aid kit.
Invest in a GPS tracking device. Their signal can help others find you even in the fog and keep you connected to people in the boats around you.
Become familiar with the waterways in the areas you plan to fish. Studying navigation charts can help to give you an idea of the best place to catch fish as well as areas to avoid for safety reasons.
Watch out for seaweed and kelp floating on the top of the water. Try to avoid driving your boat through it if possible but if your trolling motor or fishing poles gets tangled up in it the best thing to do is stop and pull out the strings until you are free.
Attach your KILL SWITCH lanyard when under way – it’s the law
