Swing and a miss

2 AJ's was all we brought back to the dock. Several undersize AJ's were landed, an endangered red snapper saw the light of day, a 6' hammerhead was brought to the boat as well as a HUGE dusky shark. We interrupted a napping sea turtle and a manta ray made an appearance. It was an overall slow day for the Venice fleet with only 1 yellowfin brought in.

OP was travelling on I-49 between Shreveport/Natchitoches where the speed limit is 75 mph. Must have been doing 85+ to get pulled over. I agree that many small towns (Olla, Pollock, Leeville, Venice, Golden Meadow, Port Sulphur, Buras, etc... ) you will get pulled over for 1 mile over the speed limit. Traffic fines support the budget.

Man that sucks. Today didn’t get any better. It is still time on the water. Venice can be magical but if it isn’t it isn’t at all. A lot of influence from the river

Between the hurricane and the recent cold front it has become challenging. We caught lots of fish today and had great time with Capt Pittman. The problem was it was hardtails, jack crevalle, an undersize cobia and several blackfin size bonita. Just nothing to fill a cooler
