    Grand Isle...Team Jefe Takes 3rd Place Wahoo

    ...well Donzi Angel actually boated the 3rd place fish....but I put the lines out and worked the gaff.

    Quick Highlight

    In addition to the 3rd place Wahoo, our two boat team took the 1st place Amberjack and 2nd place Grouper. Seas were rough...fishing was tough, but the soup and sushi were first class.

    Detailed report and photos to come.

    I was in Grand Isle Saturday B4 Katrina. Heard it was under 6 foot og water and took a severe hit. Entire Island was evacuated. Bridge was out for 3 weeks due to shifting. Went Red Fishing there last weekend and boated 150 lbs Friday- fished marsh next day but slow due to no tides. Marina was rebuilt from Ground up. All homes you saw are new .

    Sweet - nice job on the Reds....for sure Grand Isle went through hell during KAtrina. I recognized the Island, but A BUNCH had changed. Still, the Cajun's just pick up a go on with life.....C'est La Vie.

    Carl - Good luck with the Salmon..get us some pics of your catch....Only has one Freshwater pic on this whole forum...and it was more about tits than fish...Not that I'm complaining

    Nice Carl!
    Team Jefe, I plan on 2 Grand Isle Trips per year! I do not fish often but La. has me hooked. Had a shark yank a Ambassador 6500 reel and rod out of an experienced young lady's hands. The owner of the reel had it for 25 years and hated to see it go overboard buy surmized it was for a good cause and better than someone dropping it overboard. We saw the shark jump 50 yards out. Come to find out... upon pulling in the anchor line, he had wrapped it around and snapped the steel line in two. We retrieved the rod and reel!

    Thanks Wayne,

    These were the Bull Reds which are said to run in August and Sept.
    The females come just off shore from the marsh same time of year and lay eggs , Bulls do their thing and the tide sweeps them into the marsh where they begin life.
    The bulls are not legal I believe 3 miles off shore to have in the boat. Only one per person per day is allowed over 28".

    How have you been? South Fla cooling off yet? Got to fly into Ft Lauderdale 10/1 late and work toward Tampa on 10/4 B4 coming home. Rub rail came in today for my broken boat so now I need to find time to do some work on it. Needs bottom paint, deck off to repair pulled out screws, replace the gimble ring...wow, makes me cringe just thinking about it!

    Well, it isn't exactly cooling off yet, but the humidity is dropping a little bit, so it's not AS bad,....

    I've been busier that a 1 legged man in an as kickin competition, but that's good I guess, better busy and paid than slow and unemployed,.....or so they say

    I didn't realize that your boat was broken,...the 16? Well, you may cringe, but, seeing the pictures of you sanding your deck / etc. I think your a little like George,....you really do enjoy doing it I think we all do (I do), but unfortunately,...time time time,...aint on my side.

    You're going to be in Lauderdale on 10/1,....hmm, give me a call, maybe I'll be south that week, and we can get together for lunch, I'd really like to take you to Islamorada Fish Company,...the Grouper sandwich is to die for,...and maybe we can drag Poodle away from the office.

    Anyway, gotta run,....drag the kids out of the tub,...storytime, teeth brushing, etc. then finally bed, and peace and quiet (until my boy wakes up at 4am hungry )

    Take care!
