June Chandeleur Trip

Here are a few pictures from our trip out to Chandeleur last week. When we arrived we found the new GCRL research vessel “R/V Jim Franks” anchored out at the end of the channel! We visited for a moment and later on as they ferried many students back and forth to the beach. Both the weather and fishing were tough. Conditions were murky from all the rain and we had never seen so much debris and hyacinths pushed out from the marshes. We did manage some nice stringers of fish and the photos are of these plus a Chandeleur water spout and rainbow. We also have a new candidate for “Best Fish Camp Menu.” The next bunch of guys had caught a few cobia so that night we had fresh seasoned Lemon Fish and Cabernet marinated Back Strap of Venison – all charcoal grilled with all the “fixin’s.” “Redneck Riviera Surf and Turf” – can you top that? Another memorable time out at Chandeleur.
