• Marty Taillon and the "biggest catch of the day

nap's fishing trip

By Ricky Taillon


In December of 2012, we gave our dad, Napoleon "Nap" Taillon, a charter fishing trip. We purchased the trip through Captian Boola Landry, owner and guide of Reel Tite Fishing Charters. We waited until the time was right with Mr. Landry and our dad. On December 5, our dad and two of the five brothers (Marty and Ricky) arrived at the Venice Marina at 9 a.m. Due to the fog we had to wait for a little while until it was safe to begin the charters fishing trip. Mr. Landry took us down the river to one of his many fishing spots. Ricky brought his camera equipment with the intent of photographing the trip. Once anchored, they immediately began catching speckled trout. Within an hour and a half the limit of trout was caught. Mr. Landry then proceeded to move to a few areas where they caught there limit of red fish as well as four black drum. The days catch totaled 238 lbs.
