MONDAY MORNING UPDATE
FROM THE SPECKLED TROUT CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
HACKBERRY ROD AND GUN

AND THE COUNT DOWN IS ON ! ! !

WThat’s right - - - - - Just 5 more days until the opening of our second season of the 2014/2015 duck season here in southwest Louisiana. You can see and hear the excitement around the lodge by listing to everyone hashing over the record breaking harvest of the first split. The 2 week split allowed more ducks to come looking for some new place to eat. The marshes here in our area are holding lots of ducks right now and the next 37 days looks SUPER. Here are a couple of pictures from the last day of the first split. Sorry I missed them. Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and get hooked up with a second split hunting trip here at the lodge.

BIG LAKE FISNING TRIP AFTER THE MORNING HUNT

AThe fishing remains very good here on Lake Calcasieu for redfish and flounder. Check with your guide during your hunt and arrange a fishing trip you won’t soon forget. Actually someone said the other day the fishing was as good as the gumbo. WRONG ! ! ! ! – Call 888.762.3391 and check availability.

AFTER  THE  HUNT - - - - -“ HUNT  IN  THE  TEXAS  HILL  COUNTRY”

Several of us were invited to the Capital A game ranch for 3 or 4 days of R & R and it was quite a trip. Plenty of beers and deer’s were at the top on the menu but harvesting a few deer and catching a few fish from the stocked lakes was right up there. Kirk scored with a super buck and Guy snagged a beautiful bass on one warm afternoon.

After devastating news that he would not be able to attend this year, Brett showed his disappointment with a selfy of his feelings. Here are a couple of pictures that I can show you from the week.

Special thanks to Duke and Earl for their hospitality.
