God has done it again...after 5 or 6 days of massive rains, flooding and severe storm threats, He once again spares us from rain, it was a bit chilly with that north wind blowing like it was but no where near as bad as Rob Perillo projected...There is nothing much worse that it being cold and raining, been there many times and it just makes life miserable and fishing even worse...Muddy water south and mid lake and clearer up north had most scrambling for a hint on where and what to throw...Overall, I would say that Chicot once again provided us with some good catches...Quite a few big ones, one big enough to take over Big Bass for the year, Ricky Duhon delivers a 5.44 lb largemouth to take over that category...Here are the rest of the details...

God has been so good to us, blessing us once again with great weather despite what the weatherman says, God has the final word. Fishing was peculiar as usual, so many stories of the ones that got away, fish coming unbuttoned at the boat after reeling it in from 30-40' out...We are just speculating here but thinking they were lipping the bait and not putting it down the gullet...Another record breaking event for M&D Enterprises, that would be Mark Angelle & Daniel Beasley as they cracked their own 2 day team total record with 39.25 lbs, the old standard was 37.37 lbs set in 2019...Congrats guys !!

4 days on the water for some of us, some a day or 2 less but always good to visit Toledo Bend...Super nice weather until Mother Nature threw us a curve ball on Friday afternoon, had to delay and move the weighin from the bridge to Lanan Landing...what a rude awakening Saturday morning as 53 degree temperature awaited us...Thank the Lord for rainsuits because most of us were not prepared for that chilly day, never saw the sunshine at all which would have helped keep us warm...For Toledo Bend, I would say it was a tough tournament but the joy of hunting for that Largemouth Bass continues on...

Myette Point, the return..
September 19, 2020
When you get up at 4 AM to go fishing, turn on the TV and see that the weather channel is saying 20% chance of rain, the thought runs through your mind, I will leave my rainsuit at home, sunshine called for most of the day !! Well, I have learned 2 things from this trip...1. Never trust a weatherman, yes I know, we have said this before...2. Never leave your rainsuit at home, or make sure your boater has 2 in the boat...All 6 teams caught a limit of fish, some nice catches overall...BTW, we have celebrities among us...Joe and Mark fished Bayou Boutte and said Swamp People were filming in Boutte...Look out Hollywood !!!

August 29, 2020
When you get up at 4 AM to go fishing, turn on the TV and see that the weather channel is saying 90% chance of rain, the thought runs through your mind, I must be losing my mind...again God foiled the plot to get us wet as planned by Mother Nature...Not a drop !!! Big News, looks like Patterson is returning to something normal as all 5 teams caught fish...Oh Roger Dejen brought his new beast to the waters of Patterson...Nice looking Skeeter my brother...What a blessed day for sure...
Hurricane Laura ruined a fishing trip for 6 other teams as some of our members still could not get to their home or still no electricity and one members business was flooded...Keep Henry Faciane and his family in prayer as they continue the recovery process...Hey, Chris Warner got to see Jim Walton put on a show about how to catch some nice bass, Chris did catch a keeper or two as well...They tallied 6.43 lbs of bass to take 1st Place and they took Big Bass for the day with a nice 2.43 lb catch...2nd Place had the dynamic duo of Al Perry & Lawrence Brunet, their catch came in at 4.45 lbs...Ezra did not catch a 6 pounder this month but he and his father Tim Choate hooked 25-30 bass on the day, their total came to 3.77 lbs...Roger and Ricky Duhon, looked, hunted, fished and rode in the new rig and did manage a pair of keepers that weighed 2.25 lbs...And last but not least, Sonny Bajat returned to action with AOC for the first time in quite a while, called Elmer Savoie into action as they rounded up a couple that came in at 2.03 lbs...early exit as the trolling motor got tired and quit working...
Fish were caught on trick worms, senko's, drop shot and speed worms...Next month we show Fausse Point on the schedule, its close to home and will have to see how the weather holds up but I am going to prefish it every week until then...

This as mentioned was not an official tournament due to Mr. Covid. So we decided to have an "Open" tournament. Teams paid $20 per boat to fish for the team event plus another $5 each for the BIG FISH jackpot. At the end of the day, most of us were shocked at the weights that were caught...The following is a list of teams and their weights, talk about close:

Hot on the heals was the duo of Randy Prejean & Elmer Savoie with their 1.01 lb catch..
Hey, $110 for 1st Place, $50 for 2nd and $80 for Big Fish, not bad for a great day of fishing...NOTE: Fishing, not catching.

Kicking off the New Year with our Annual Pre-Fish Event
January 25, 2020
Record setting day or near record setting day for AOC ???
Wow, what a day it was !!! A little chilly to start buy turned out to be a beautiful day for sure...water was in great shape, 57-58 degree water temps a setup for a great fishing day...so as far as records set...hmmm...well the good news is that Bryan Tabor did not fish so he did not continue his streak of flat tires...on the other hand, records that might be real this day, are ones that we do not keep track of...8 teams fishing equals 16 fishermen equals 5 guys catching 6 fish total...tough day is right !!
Top Teams : Joe(2 fish) Phillips and partner Chuck(1 fish) Briley took 1st Place by .04 lbs with their 2.67 lbs of bass, that equals out to 0.89 lbs per fish...WOW !!! Hey let's face it, it would make the T-Frog and Al E. Gator Awards for sure...Hot on their tails was the duo of Tim & Eben Choate, well, let's call it the Eben & Tim Choate duo as the "Young Gun" took BIG BASS for the day with a 1.49 lb largemouth...their total weight sat at 2.63 lbs...3rd Place had Lawrence Brunet and Mike McCann with their catch of 0.95 lbs...
Well that does it for the teams and the individuals as well...not much more to say except, COME ON MILLER'S, be nice to us...Oh I guess we can say this to...total club weight for the day was 6.25 lbs, 6 fish total for an average weight of 1.04 lbs
The day on the water was worth it whether you caught or not, the fellowship on the water and at the weigh in was icing on the cake....

Angler of the Year for 2019, Mark Angelle, joined forces with past AOY, Lawrence Brunet to walk away with the win...as it turns out, both of these guys weighed in a Big Bass and both weighed exactly 3.28 lbs...so they had an arm wrestling contest to see who would take home th winnings....and the WINNER WAS, neither, no arm wrestling involved for fear of breaking an arm and not being able to fish for 10 weeks...hahahaha...Of course they caught their fish punching, go figure...we look forward to our 15th year of AOC in 2020...A couple of new places on the schdule this year so it should be quite interesting...
Hey, Chris Warner and Jim Walton took 2nd Place with a nice 2.82 lb largemouth bass that was suckered into biting the famous "trick worm" that has always paid off...Randy Prejean paired up with Joe Phillips for a tie for 3rd Place on the day with a nice 2.41 lb bass that fell prey to a speed craw...Damon & Hunter Keely also had a 2.41 lb bass for the tie for 3rd Place...A total of 8 teams fished the event, thanks to all that came out to participate...

We did not have rain at least one day while at Toledo Bend !!! Wait a minute, I did say that 11 months ago when we made our annual Spring Fling to Toledo Bend !!! Listen, no rain, no clouds, light winds and a little chilly in the mornings is what we hoped for and God once again comes through...I don't know about you guys but I always pray for every tournament that God would bless us with good weather and keep everyone safe to and from Toledo Bend. Once again guys we caught +157 lbs of fish, anytime we cross that 150 lb mark, we have done well. Record setting event for the 2 day team total weight was set by Daniel Beasley and Mark Angelle with 37.37 lbs of bass, that is an average weight of 3.11 lbs...Awesome job guys and congratulations on the win.
