#12195, "We moved to Louisiana"



In June we sold our home in the East Bay and flew to New Orleans to start a new chapter in this adventure called life. We're living on the North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain, 40 miles north of Bayou Segnette (to give a fishing landmark).

I moved for work. Working for a fortune 5 company, they have a thing about moving people around. It was an opportunity and we took it. The boys are 4 and 1. They're having a good time here. There's a pond a few houses down and we've educated a few bass there this summer. Turtles and gar make for extra entertainment :)

My lifetime California fishing license is still in my wallet. Sitting next to my Louisiana and Texas ones. With luck I'll add Mississippi and Arkansas soon. I consider myself an American first and foremost. The fish don't know where the map says they live ;)

The site will always be here. I have no plans to change what it is. Starting from a 2mb college account and a url with a tilde in it, I could never quit now. There's a question that keeps rolling through my head though which is... what next?

Before we moved Nico and I were running 2 GoPros during the ABA Northern Region team tourneys and posting the clip on every catch. It felt good to be the antithesis of tournament fishing. And so far I see nothing in the prop wash.

That tells me that like always, I'm out in left field somewhere, chasing frogs and not watching for the ball. Wherever the site goes I hope it will be somewhere out there.

Fishing for bass around here? Not great for the trophy hunter. Numbers, but small. Dudes have 8lbers hanging on the wall. I sold the small boat but I brought the ChampioN. The swamp is beautiful to fish and you can probably get a frog bite 12 months out of the year.

Texas is not far. I'm looking at Basschamps as a tourney option. Rayburn last month was cool. You could feel the history driving up the lake. Toledo Bend looks immense on the map. I want to run a boat lane in the fog just to have a story to tell.

Swimbait fishing? Dude, they're bass. Bass eat fish. The rest is lure selection and timing. Here's a pic from the Umphrey Pavillion. I'll be in touch.
