I now have my 100 ton captains license, and guide permit, and a 26' glacier Bay with all the proper permits to run offshore fishing trips out of Venice! In the month of June I broke four records for yellow edge grouper! And have been fishing quite often!! The tuna.... Read More
Never too late to post this kind of action. This was July 4th.
Paul Snow along with his grandson Luke and friends came and just flat out caught the fish. From start to finish these boys were lit up catching mangrove after mangrove. In the middle of all this the cobia would show up and they would know just how to get them on the line. It looks like the croakers finally got big enough to use.... Read More
While not rare, African pompano aren't caught every day in every coastal area, so they're reason to get excited. Beautiful, hard-fighting, and good on the dinner table, bottom fishermen working reefs and wrecks encounter them.
This past week once again was about as good of weather as you could ask for. Sunday was a little rainy and windy but not that bad. A lot of fish were caught this past week, mostly Tuna, but that is usually what we target this time of the year. Along with the Tuna there were a few Mahi Mahi, Mangrove Snapper, a 104lb. Warsaw Grouper—caught by the Calvert crew from Ca.—congrats. And for the crews.... Read More
Big Warsaw Grouper 6'10' 305#, caught out of Fourchon for the Oilman's Rodeo. Caught by Simon Guidry fishing with Team Joe's Septic Contractors on Trigger w/ Master Plan Charters. Waiting for official word but looking like #3 in the State.
The offshore species have been biting very well with most trips from everyone is considered to be good to great days! With most captains trips are hauling in double-digit yellowfin tuna, plenty of mahi mahi's when found, giant black fin tunas, decent size wahoos, plenty of blue Marlins being billed already this summer! So if you are trying to go on a charter I am pretty open! My prices are.... Read More
My boyfriend and I love to go offshore fishing. (Out of grand isle) We don't do it as much as we want because we don't have our own boat. We are lucky to have friends with boats to take us until we get out own.
I want to buy him for his birthday some maps to better understand the water. I want to buy maps of offshore Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico.
Just read report by ktm125sx who didn't catch any snappers. I have a similar question. Fished for mangrove snappers for years out of Fouchon until year before last and always caught plenty mangroves. Now I'm back on the water this year.
We usually hooked as close as safe to the down current side of the rig and fished with Carolina rigs or free lines cast under the rigs in 50 - 60 ft of.... Read More
Can someone please clarify when is the state red snapper season actually open. The Pamphlet states that it is open on weekends but on the website under 'Seasons' it states that it is open Daily. Is anyone keeping red snapper in state waters? We been catching plenty in state waters while Mangrove fishing but been scared to keep them.
I went fish a rig about 6 -7 miles off the coast of grand isle the water was 60 foot deep and had a light green tent to water i tryed everything i used small pogie and small croakers shirmp and tryed at diffrent depths i dint catch a single fish :/ then a boat came up to rig and started tearing up the red snapper was my bait to small or not right type bait or maybe to small weight im not sure....

On vacation this week so fishing hard and offshore snapper on fire. We fishing close to southwest past. Live pogies or croaker for Mangrove and frozen pogies for the red snapper. Calm seas have been the ticket. The mangrove are around 15 to 40 feet. U need lightest weight you can get away with and small circle hook. We had limits 2 days in a row.
Friday it was Kenny Smith and gang from T Baker Smith & Sons. They wanted fish and that is just what they got. The mangroves cooperated along with the cobia. The live croakers have finally got large enough to be effective. It wasn't many at any particular spot but each spot produced a few and after a few spots the numbers began to increase. Along with the mangroves the cobia would show up.... Read More
Where to begin... I flew in from Southern California mid week excited with anticipation about getting on some nice grade tuna off Louisiana. In doing my research and talking with a few friends from home they put me in touch with Donnie Jackson, the head captain of Tails Up charters. Some of my buddies went out with him a year ago and whacked em really good so I decided to go out for a day. Plus,.... Read More
