Hope everyone is well and finding time to fish. The doom and gloom of
my May message has turned out to be not as bad as everyone was
predicting. People at the May Montauk outing seemed to do pretty
good. Reports from following weeks have held to about the same
catch rates. Joe Aimonette and I had a good day warm water fishing out
of belly boats in mid May. Bass were of off of their beds and ready to
eat. If you are into warm water, do it now before it gets too hot. I had
an opportunity to do some Redfish fishing on the coast in Alabama the
first part of June. Fished with Capt. Dan Kolenich out of Fairhope AL. I
was on vacation with my family and decided to get away for day from all
the fun. (1 wife and 4ea. 13 year olds). If you going down to Gulf
Shores, Orange Beach or Pensacola you might want to give this guy a try.
This was my first time fishing from a flats boat with the guide poling
us along. Did a lot of 40 foot cast and stripping back. Five hours was
as much fun as my body could handle. Back in the bayou’s, the wind was
not a problem. Had an 8 foot alligator eye us up, but in general they
don’t let you get very close.
We want to hear from you if you go on any trips that you think someone might be interested in. A short article about were, when and who with would be all we need. It would nice if the newsletter had some helpful and or entertaining short stories.
Hope to see everyone at the Tilles meeting this month. Remember we start at 5:00 pm for this meeting.
