Should be a good story, Puck. Glad y'all made it back in one piece.

We had an adventure.

•   20% chance of rain means it rains half of the day
•   Breakfast interrupted by showers in not a way to start the day
•   Hooks in thumbs hurt
•   An 8 pound jack on a fly is crazy
•   2 foot long ladyfish fight like baby tarpon
•   Those wave really will knock you down
•   Water temp was OK, until the "boys" got wet
•   Sand is not a tasty as you might think
•   Fire starting is actually an art, and I'm not an artist
•   "SNAP" in the middle of the night is not a good sound
•   4WD is not really an option, it is a necessity
•   "KA-BOOM" is not a good sound when you have a lightning rod in your hands
•   VHF radios in every vehicle is a great idea, which we flubbed
•   Too much food, was actually a complaint......  We didn't go hungry!
•   Packing list, and packing list, and check the packing list.....
•   Tell the few anglers that are actually catching fish that we would like to add fish to the menu, and to keep a few....
•   Yes, it is possible to nap after drinking a Monster (R)
•   "New to the club" does not mean he doesn't know how to fish!
•   0230 really is a bad time to drive
•   "Whrrrrrrr" when trying to start the truck is a stomach churning sound....
•   Spanish mackerel will hit a swivel as quickly as a fly
•   I didn't know there was a city at the jetties


Report, and pictures in the works.

Thinking about going again Sunday morning about 800am.  Join me if you can I will have my Outcast and 3wt in hand. Somebody bring a waterproof camera so we can get some marvelous pictures of some of these perch.  Bring small poppers and make sure you bring some forceps for removing the popper from their mouths. They swallow these things whole. See you there. Park over in the cul de sac.  Dont take trucks onto pond grounds!

Next year I wouldn't be leaving the wife at home with a newborn so I'll be looking to make this trip as I did last year. Plus, it a good feeling to hold your baby boy.

Plus I dont have a 4WD drive  :(

Next time!

Dave - yes they have a lot of small stream native trout and char fishing. I would definitely like to check it out sometime

George - I like the way you think. May I propose that said business meeting be held in the French Quarter of NOLA with regular daily team building events in the Venice marsh area?

LOL / The power of a wife's love, a powerful story.

A very old man lay dying in his bed. In death's doorway, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookie wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort forced himself down the stairs, gripping the railing with both hands.

With labored breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen.

Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven.

There, spread out on newspapers on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip cookies.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted wife, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself toward the table. The aged and withered hand, shaking, made its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when he was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife.

"Stay out of those," she said. "They're for the funeral."

Great stuff Matt - never let a business trip get in the way of fly fishing, right? I'm thinking I need to arrange a business meeting somewhere down near Venice Louisiana...  8)
