Every year for the past 6 years a guy brings down a bunch of rowdy Texans and cowboys to fish our bountiful waters of Terrebonne Parish. This guy is Peter Velasco and he is in charge of the Cowboys & Cajuns Redfish Rodeo where everyone comes to enjoy good fishing, good food, and good fun. Peter, along with David Todd and Mike Shipley, put together one of the most fun events of the year for our area captains and guests. Usually Peter is so tied up with organizing and taking phone calls that he never has a chance to actually fish. So today, we made that happen. First stop with bait crab and we hit the ground running. We had good falling tide and I had a good crab chum line going. The hardheads were having fun eating the meat out of the bait for the first 20 minutes. Then the reds decided to go into a frenzy and the rods started bending over. When the smoke cleared Peter and Mike had damaged the deck of the Blue Wave mighty fine with 9 fat reds. Around 9:00 we took off looking for trout. The birds were working good and hundreds of tiny shrimp were being chased to the surface by speckled trout. The best part was that the trout were hitting the baits nearly still in the air. The worst part about it was that they were 90% too small. We kept one in ten and sat on that school for a good hour catching trout every single cast. That was to be the best bite we were going to find all day. The rest of the trip was spent searching but not finding much. We got a lot of meat for the 6th Annual Cowboy’s & Cajun’s Redfish Rodeo. Great times gentlemen!
