Awesome Grand Isle Fishing

The Catch
Snapper (Mangrove)
Spanish Mackerel (Narrow-barred)
Speckled Trout

It was another beautiful day on the island for my crew from Florida. Ed, Bobby, Danny and John climbed aboard for their Fin-tastic Louisiana fishing trip, and we set sail to the promised land. We hit our first stop and started catching some nice trout. The tide stopped there, so we made our way to the next honey hole where we boated a pile of redfish and channel mullet. Then my crew said they were up for snapper action, so we rode out to one of my favorite rigs and caught a mess of snapper and Spanish Mackerel. After filling the 150 qt ice chest to the top, we headed in so I could clean and bag their catch for the long trip back to Ft Myers. We ended the day catching 15 redfish, 30 speckled trout, 40 channel mullet, 5 Spanish Mackerel and 12 snapper.
Thanks again guys for coming fish with me.
