Nice weather, caught some fish and didn't get shark bit. Pretty good trip.
I would love to make that trip. Sounds like a blast. I have heard the sharks have been so bad out there that I doubt I would wade fish. And also from the report I am not going all that way just to come home with 44 trout. That is a nice number for fishing inshore wading but not going that far for those numbers. Read an article in the SunHerald by Barry Foster that talked about the sharks and why they have not been catching trout there in numbers lately. SHARKS!Chief - You got it brother, anytime just let me know!
Loneoak23 - The water was crystal clear...about 10' visibility on both sides of the island.
Troutman - You hit the nail right on the head - definitely a special place!
You had me at "3 days of no cell phones"....[cool]I have been 25+ times over the last 27 years and we have noticed a decline in the catching, but we will keep going as long as there is something of Chandeleur left. The way I look at it. 3 days of no cell phones, emails, internet, honey do's or anything else, just spending time with friends and family taking a break. I know it's fairly expensive but you can't stay in a hotel 3 nights and pay for 3 meals a day for much less. The fishing is a bonus but the entire trip is well worth it even if the fishing part may be a little slow.
