Getting Lucky or Just Good?

Saturday I knocked my Shurhold Brush and Handle off the boat into 10 feet of
59F degree water.

How long did it float?......3 seconds tops.

It really does help to utter a few choice words but it did little to get the friggin' brush back.

I keep a treble hook and weight around for my stupid days but wasn't very optimistic about snagging the brush.

Second pass dragging the hook I caught the big one.

I shoulda bought a Lottery Ticket.

Fishing off of Grand Isle, La, in 100 or so feet of water caught a rod, reel and line, could not have been in the water for more than a day! Nice rig, used it for years.

Fishing is good here in the winter, that would be Jan and Feb if it gets cold.
Really good in the salt marshes and around the oil platforms for reds and spec trout.
When I fished, constantly-----that was before my trawler style, and before GPS, used Cajun navigation to and from the oil rigs. That is check the block number on the rig, look at the "block chart" bingo that is your EXACT location.
I made up a sheet with all of the most productive rigs with compass headings and distance to the next rigs. Did not even need the chart. Handed out a couple hundred to fellow fishermen. I laminated them as well.

maybe i should come down there then instead of going to the desert in febuaray. I'm 65 and retired so i could squeeze a trip into my schedule. Could i rent a boat down there for a day oir two? I've never even been to the gulf coast
so you were a professional fiserman or just addicted to fishing like i was for many years?

Floyd,
I fished for years as an excuse to go on the boat. A fisherman goes on the boat to go fishing, I went fishing to go on the boat.
I can get the name of a guide and send to you if you like
e mail me direct at charlesculotta@gmail.com
