Default Good day on the bayou 10/25

Well, we had 4 finger mullet and one mud puppy(?) still alive in the bait bucket from earlier this week and threw the net today for some more but nothing doing. Went out to the bayou with my son in the jon boat with the 4 finger mullet and frozen shrimp, shad, pinfish, crabs & squid.

Got to a good spot and got the three keepers and lost one within an hour. Mullet were gone so tried the frozen bait, on too small shrimp (tiny) got 2 rat reds. On shads, mud puppy, pinfish, crab & squid - nothing. Tried a couple of mullet-like soft baits & nothing. I think if we’d had some large dead shrimp we may have got some slot reds but who knows.

Water was 78.6 degrees, pretty clear for the bayou and a falling tide. Gnats were horrendous but deep woods OFF helped, a little.

One fish had very small blue crabs in his stomach and the other one had shrimp (maybe). The 3rd one was empty.

Redfish on the 1/2 shell tomorrow & two more meals in the freezer - pretty nice day!

I was cooking redfish-on-the-halfshell when my son suggested spreading mayonnaise on the meat surface. It made the finished fish more tender and propped up the flavor quite a bit. Now I won't do it any other way!

Just tried same thing on 3# sheephead I caught yesterday. Mm-mm good. We used to make a mayo+teriyaki+green onion sauce and coat 2" cubes of wahoo, tuna, & mahi when I worked in the pacific. Indirect/slow cooked on the weber makes a nice coating, holds in moisture, and gives lots of time for luau.

Sounds like an excellent way to cook them and a good sauce.
