Despite very limited waters more trophy's still hitting the Deck!6-28-10

Thanks so much for the good times! Oil is here and it is heart wrenching.

Started out the week with Mr. Jeff Greenhaw and crew from Fouke, Arkansas. Sharks were on the agenda, but a good rain shower was lurking just offshore, so we stopped and spent a couple of hours on some light tackle action. It was a pretty darn good bite taking place but the rain kept spreading and it finally got us, it was moving very slow and getting bigger so we opted to just try the sharks the next day.
Started out Wednesday morning on one of my favorite reefs and nothing was happening so on to the chumming spot, and even that started out pretty slow, but we had to tell ourselves "chum and the sharks will come". And sure enough took about an hour or so and started getting some good black tips. And all of a sudden this slick that was just to the West of us started moving our way. And I about cried, yes it was the oil! Tar balls had us surrounded! That pretty much ended that day (sorry).
Friday, Mr. Mickey Leflore returned with a young gun, who he wanted to experience some of the action he had just weeks prior. And I tell ya they put it on'um pretty good. Nice trophy black drum, reds, specks, and flounder.
Saturday, we were limited pretty much to the Back Bay. And Mr. Walter Ketchen from Jackson, brought 3 buddies from Brandon,Ms. We had a pretty tough day, fished hard and caught black drum, specks, white trout, ground mullet, reds, and flounder, but only 1 or 2 of each.
Sunday, we were back to reeling'um in, Mr. Josh Windham along with Tom, Ben and Tiffany Windham from Brandon, Ms. had some pretty good fish. Mrs. Tiffany really showed the boys a thing or 2! Red and Black Drum Speckle trout, Flounder and several nice White trout and Ground mullet all surrendered to the Windham crew. They were going to take some of their catch over to SHAGGY`S and have it cooked for them.(let me know how it was)
Thanks so much for the good times! Oil is here and it is heart wrenching. I felt obligated to try in get everyone that was booked in if they were coming an Sunday was the last trip on the books. Gone try very hard to go to work with VOO program so maybe the last report.
Thanks again to all who trust in the Whipasnapa for your good times boating! Guess gone have to put the new WhipaSnapa in that mess to survive an when that happens no more trips. Thanks again to everyone for all the very thoughtful concerns. And for coming and supporting us anyway!!!!!!!!!!
