Fishing in FH-13 on January 15, 2011© Photos Posted by Mark Miller © Hi-Res Source
Finally a Weather Window opened up for the first time in almost 2 months. It was Cold, but we decided to venture out to FH-13 for a short hook wetting trip. Along on the trip was my wife Pam and my oldest son Ben along with his friends, Alec, Devin, Tyler, and Tony. Paul was away at a Soccer Competition in Jackson, and Luke was hanging with 2 of his friends and did not want to crowd the boat. The water was very milky from all the rough weather and the fish were not biting very well, but we made the best of it and managed to catch some red snapper. Water temps were around 44° in the bayou and 54° offshore. Combined with the milky water, we skipped out on the diving. Both Pam and Devin managed to boat some 22"+ Red Snapper. Pam was Queen Fisherman with about 10 Red Snapper and 2 Oyster Dogs. Alec only landed 1 fish, but it was by far the largest (estimated 20lbs.). Total trip encompassed 59.0 miles, 5.7 hours, and 29.1 gallons of fuel.
