Background
I have always loved the outdoors and fishing from a early age. I began my adventure balancing a old tackle box and Zebco 33 on the handle bars of my bike while fishing every local farm pond in my community as I grew up. After getting my license, a 64 Ford pickup and a 16 foot johnboat became my weapons of choice as I fished every state lake within a half a days drive. I had been on a few inshore charters while working and bought a bay boat in 2012. After taking many of my friends fishing I discovered that I truly enjoyed helping people catch fish. I look forward to fishing with you.
Techniques
In Delacroix, we target inshore species, mainly Redfish, Black drum and speckled trout. The marsh, for the most part, is shallow and most of our fish are caught in 3 feet of water or less. Our standard tackle for the style of fishing we do is a Medium/Medium light spinning rods 7 feet' in length coupled with a 3000 series spinning reel spooled with 20lb braided line. We generally fish popping corks with a 2 foot leader and 40lb monofilament on a 1/4oz jig head with either live shrimp or fresh dead bait. If conditions permit we will switch to plastics or spinner baits. I will fish artificial only trips but the client must understand our catch ratio will usually decrease in the absence of market bait.
