What a great week for catching redfish on our estuary for all our guys. Every day it seemed like everyone was returning to the dock with full limits of the big lake fighting fish. The north shore line of west cove around the headquarters reef has been paying off best for redfish and limits of speckled trout with live shrimp under a popping cork. Our guys have also been hauling in good numbers of trout over the reefs in Turners bay and Moss Lake. Guide Mike Bares reported that the trout are still on the small side. He was able to keep one out of three that he caught. Still no bird action in our area but a small cool front would get that started. I had chance to ease of shore last Wednesday with one of our guides with little results. Nothing but trash fish at the rigs and came up empty handed after running a weed line for maybe a mile looking for triple tail. By this time we were out of iced tea so we headed north.

EARLY TEAL SEASON ENDED YESTERDAY WITH MIXED RESULTS
Some days good and some days not so good was the results of early teal season here in southwest Louisiana. Very hot weather and very little early morning wind was the major contributor to a weak harvest. But wait until next year
Here are a few pictures from last week:

Assembling the Nachos
Arrange store bought nacho scoops on a plate, sprinkle with shredded Colby Jack cheese. Spoon fish mixture over cheese. Add fresh pico de gallo over fish mixture. Sprinkle with more Colby Jack cheese and place plate in microwave to melt cheese. Remove from microwave and pour Cilantro-Ranch dressing over the top. Garnish with extra Cilantro and serve.

I got this recipe from Jerald and Glenda Horst’s book “Louisiana Seafood Bible”. You will make this dish over and over again. The book is available in the Dock Shop here at the lodge.
