I love going on quests to find fish. There’s just something alluring and intriguing about venturing out into the unknown, armed only with a head full of knowledge and a heart full of hope.
That’s what Capt. Justin Bowles, my son, Joel, and I did on Friday of last week fishing in Lake Pontchartrain near a well-known bridge.
After a lean winter, we all had a ravenous desire to locate and catch some speckled trout, and we committed to sticking with the task, no matter how many times we cracked our heads against a wall.
Fortunately, though, we didn’t have to search far. We found feeding fish at our first stop, and had a blast welcoming an early spring. And even with the loss of a fishing rod, a good time was still had by all.
Even if Joel will never live down having dropped that rod into the drink.
“I didn’t feel this sick from COVID,” he said as he lamented the loss of his rig.
It wasn’t just a speckled trout day, by the way. A veritable seafood platter, including sheephead, drum and flounder, found their way into the boat.
