Met Big Guy down in Chauvin as a guest to join him on Mr. Ratliff’s skiff. Good food, good drink, great company.

Ron, aka the Pole Dancer, worked his ass off in sustained 15-25mph winds and variable clouds- probably the worst weather combo you could ask for. I’m looking forward to another session with him down the road.

Under the “even a blind squirrel can find a nut,” a managed to find the dumbest red in the bayou. Probably the prettiest, too.

I was gonna do a full report, but see that pretty trailer Jeff and I are drinking in front of? A semi truck pulled a hit and run on the way home and, from the adjusters best guess, it’s gonna be totaled out. Just got home and I’m gonna drink myself to sleep...

OK, I’ll own up to it, it’s my fault, and I take full, well almost, responsibility for WB’s misfortune. It all started a while back, which means I can’t exactly remember, but I saw where WB was camped out on the beach in Galveston, and being somewhat hospitable, invited WB and his better to escape the sun, sand, humidity, and tourists for just slightly cooler weather, a night or two away from their tin can and a little fishing. Pete needed surgery and WB had to bail on the fishing trip. This year, when I learned my wife had a training fairly close to the Louisiana Coast, I hooked up with the Swamp Yeti, aka Pole Dancer, and asked WB if he was going to be anywhere nearby. He volunteered to haul him and his trailer all the way from Albuquerque for just one day of fishing. And I thought I was the only dumbass that did that.
Flew in to New Orleans and drove down to Chauvin to be greeted by the only 5 star accommodations within 25 miles.

While WB was barreling toward disaster I was soaking up the local culture,
My wife pointed out the Chihuly chandelier, I saw more interesting beauty

Shrimp. Crawfish and a cheese that was more like etoufee. You don’t find those in Tex-mex joints!
More to come...

If I get a new trailer out of it, you can take credit! But, you ain’t taking any for any bad shit. I absolutely enjoyed visiting.

Last time I fished with the Yeti he didn’t have his boxers hiked up high enough, so when he did that pose I got a face full of hairy ass crack. When I was on the platform I held the dripping foot of the push pole over it to give him the wet ass, because that’s what friends are for.

Been slacking pretty bad here which only means everything else has been busy. Get out and enjoy.

As my Grandfather reportedly loved to say- The fish gotta have some luck too
