Fishing unaffected, guides not so lucky

Mike and dad fished the bottom all day while Tom and I stuck with shrimp under corks; each group caught about the same number and variety of fish.Fishing has been largely unaffected by the Katrina and Rita storm surges. If anything, the two surges have improved the trout season. Guide Bill Lake, of Houma, is says, “I stay pretty busy in the winter months, but this year I have been inundated with calls from the east and west of us. All their infrastructure was wiped out. The fish are there, but there are no boat docks, no motels and most of the guide services were wiped out. There are probably 250 guides in Louisiana out of work right now.

    This is definitely good information and thanks.

    One of the things I treasured each Saturday before the storm was listening to Don DeBuq on WWL. It’s even more pleasurable now aht he’s on more often.

    …now if I can just find the time. Dammit.
