So right now I’m waiting for confirmations from a couple buddies and a couple guys from here. I could have 5 openings, or 0. Lol. Give me a little bit to get it squared away and I’ll post back up with current status. Thanks.

For those of you who have a history of fishing the Chandeleur's, this boat is the old Joka's Wild. It was sold a couple years ago but still has a fine crew and they'll put you on the fish! Just like I told Phillip last year, if you don't want to make this a regular trip, don't ever go the first time!! The place grows on you and gets in your blood!!

we went on the VI years ago, only got to fish 1 1/2 days due to a 21" rainfall that came in, but it was a blast. Would love to do this again.

Me too man. Ready to rip some lips. This will be my 3rd trip to the islands. Iíve never hunted Mexico but from the way the Mexico hunters talk about the tranquility down there, the islands do it for me.

Don't worry about the skills. The fish were practically jumping in the box for Philip and I last trip. Need to make sure your arms and shoulders are tuned up though. Mine were flat wore out.

I’ll say this too, those hard heads out there are savages. I caught a bunch wading with lures. Lol. Also, everybody that’s going, I highly recommend wading. I don’t have actual numbers but I think waders outfished drifters at least 5 to 1. It was probably more than that. Biggest catch from a drifting group was 25 in a morning. We stuck 100+ keepers and probably 3 times that many throw backs both mornings wading.

Hmmm

Oddly enough my son and I caught all our trout drifting the hump and most of the reds where caught wading. I think junior and I boxed 80% of the trout caught. We actually got bored with catching them and went to wade a few times

I’m sure it varies. I had planned to wade anyway, the captain told us the waders we’re doing better but the other guys were scared of sharks. Only 3 of us waded, and we boxed 150 fish lol. Drift boats were coming in with 10-15 each time out. We got bored with trout too, it was literally every single cast. We tried for reds but didn’t get any, I did stick a 26 or 27” trout looking for reds though. Ate a big purple. Lol I think we had 8 or 10 reds total.

I caught a bull shark about 5 foot long in about 18" of water on a chicken boy and popping cork. Thought it was a stud red till it got to the boat!! It was fun and pulled the hook.

We saw a few drifting the flats but it wasnt enough to keep me from wading.
