Our next Chandeleur trip is being planned for ~ February 23-26. We’ve had some of our best trips ever already this winter ( photos on the Fishing Reports page) so don’t miss out! Details from club emails are reprinted below…
I just booked the Pelican for the weekend of Feb. 23, Thursday, thru Sunday the 26th. Weather permitting (gulp, gulp) we will be heading out for some of the best trout fishing of the year. Feb. has really been productive for nice trout, so I hope we can get a boat load of enthusiasts. I also hope that the ride home is better than the one we just endured (barely).
We will need to find who wants to go and if you want to take your boat or not. We can moor 4 boats alongside the Pelican if necessary, but I really feel like 3 boats, or even 2 is plenty. Just let us know if you plan on taking your boat.
I initially wanted to get this over to our newly elected VP and trip coordinator Gus Pialet, but I probably should work this one up, along with his help of course. Reason I say that is that I have lots of “meats” that fill the spots that Hossfly does not take, and I have a list of them in my email.
The rundown is the same. The overnight charge is $100 per person per night. We split the cost of the food, which is usually about $30 each. Individual captains will probably ask you to help with the gas to and from, which is usually marginal too. Always bring twice the amount of adult beverages you think you might consume and at least two fishing rigs, hopefully fly rods. We offer casting instructions on the dock for those who want to sharpen their skills. Very casual, so don’t get nervous, if you can read between the lines.
Email me or call me and I will put your name on the list. I should take a 100 deposit, but I don’t, and I usually regret it, but that’s the way I roll. I am going to alert my “meats” so if you want to go, let me know sooner than later. I will be gone for a week come Sunday, so don’t expect me to answer until I get back. Looking forward to it. We had a good trip this past weekend, save the return home. Caught lots of really nice reds. You newbies would absolutely get a rush if your first fish was one of these reds. Nothing more fun for me. We can make it happen.
Wet lines, Rod
