IT’S OFFICIAL THE FALL FLOUNDER RUN IS ON
An early fall norther moved through 3 or 4 days ago pushing shrimp out of the marsh and spawning some really good bird action on the lake but the really good news is the FLOUNDER RUN IS ON. Good catches of the tasty flat fish can be caught along both sides of the ship channel. The best bait has been anything you can get to the bottom with. Live shrimp along with Gulp, Hackberry Hustlers and just about any plastic bait bounced on the bottom will do just fine. Good catches of trout have been caught in Turner bay and some big tackle busting redfish are coming from the jetties. As you can tell these fish are all up and down the whole system but that’s OCTOBER. Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and come to southwest Louisiana and cash in on the action. Here are a few pictures and you can see them all by clicking here

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE
You know how we Cajuns like to cook with wine, butter and garlic……Well you are going to love this recipe. Serve these with roasted duck or chicken or get you a glass of wine and just eat them out of the skillet.
1 stick butter (1/4 lb)
3 or 4 cloves of garlic, minced or 2 tablespoons ready-minced garlic
5 or 6 green onion tops or shallots
10 sprigs of parsley
Two 8-ounce or 1 pound carton of mushrooms
1-1/2 cup sauterne or other dry white wine
Red pepper to taste
Pinch of salt if needed
Wash mushrooms. Use whole, if small and uniform in size, or slice larger mushroom lengthwise so that the shape of the mushroom is preserved, to ensure even cooking. Chop onion tops and parsley until very fine. Finely minced garlic or use pre-mixed garlic.
Heat butter in large skillet. When melted, add garlic and saute. Add onion tops and parsley. Saute. Add mushroom and wine and add red pepper. Add salt if needed saute until mushrooms just turn brown. Don't over-cook. Should be firm, but not raw.
My thought - Failure will never overtake you if your determination to succeed is strong enough.
Have a great week and remember “Ya shoulda been here yesterday”
