GOOD CATCHES OF TROUT HIGHLIGHTED LAST WEEK ON BIG LAKE
Anglers fishing on big lake last week were in the middle of some hot speckled trout catching. Some of the action came very early under working sea gulls on the south end of the lake just north of the old jetties and over Cheniere reef. Good action was also over in West come later in the morning drifting over oyster reefs with live shrimp under a popping cork. Best soft plastics last week were Hackberry Hustlers and the H&H cocahoe in the glow/chartreuse color rigged on a lite lead head under a small cork or just tight lining. Turner bay gave up some solid trout and redfish drifting over oyster beds early in the week.

EARLY TEAL SEASON IS SEPTEMBER 14TH TO SEPTEMBER 29TH
Our new duck hunting marsh proved to be the very best in Southwest Louisiana last year and it’s looking even better this year. Early teal season should be fantastic so book you trip now. September is one of the best fishing months here on Lake Calcasieu so take time to book our famous BLAST & CAST and have twice the fun. What could be better than blasting away at fast flying teal in the morning and casting away at big lake trout and redfish in the afternoon.

A cornmeal coating makes these fried oysters super crispy and delicious.
Vegetable oil (for frying)
1 quart oysters (about 2 cups drained oysters)
2 large eggs (beaten)
2 cups cornmeal
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons flour
Pour about 3 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy, deep saucepan. Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring it to a temperature of 370 F. Drain the oysters and pat dry with paper towels or a kitchen towel. In a bowl, beat the eggs. Add drained oysters and set aside for 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the cornmeal, sugar, salt, pepper, and flour. Lift an oyster out of the egg mixture and let excess drip off and roll it in the cornmeal mixture to coat. Then add it to the hot oil. Repeat with more oysters, frying them in batches of about 6 to 8. Fry the oysters for about 2 to 4 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Use a metal slotted spoon to remove the oysters to paper towels to drain. Serve hot with warm French bread and your favorite sauce. You can use a cocktail or tarter sauce but I prefer a brown butter sauce. YUM YUM
My thought – LET IT GO !!!!!!! – Never ruin a good day by thinking about a bad yesterday.
