Taking the family to the Rigolets area this week and would LOVE to have advice on where to find fish. Don't really care what kind of fish (besides catfish), just want to put some fish in the boat. Any suggestions would be very helpful.
Please accept my Thanks in Advance,
Good times today with Scott Kleinpeter and Rosie Philips. We departed at day break in the Gator Tail and found the trout waiting for us at our first stop! Green Hornet Matrix Shad tight lined on a 1/4 oz Golden Eye jig head did the trick. The action was steady, but we had to weed through the 11.5 inch trout. A few fish hit the Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork but Green Hornet tight lined....
Day two with Cajun Industries staying at the Reel Inn. Windier conditions and a strong incoming tide made the fishing tough. We still found clean water and tons of mullet where we caught yesterday, but the trout wanted nothing to do with us. The search began and we just pecked away at the trout. A lonely red and flounder found their way into the Big Bluewave also. Not sure if the fish....
I helped Capt. Rob Dupont out with a 10 man trip on Friday morning. With three boats originally scheduled, one guide fell sick in the middle of the night which left us to running 5 people in each of our boats. No problem at all as we handled this trip with ease! With a front passing through, high winds, and dirty water everywhere...we knew catching big fish was our best option. At or first stop,....
I have family coming in the first week of
April and I just looked at the tide charts. Pretty depressing as the tides are terrible. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips for fishing conditions like this? I appreciate any insight.
I hope everyone is as ready as I am for this fishing
season to kick off. It is already starting to look like
this year is going to be a great one. The sheepheads,
drums, and bull reds are starting to show. Just as long
as the weather lets us get out there we can put some
in the box. we are looking forward for the shrimp to come in so we can move on the outside and catch some....
Yesterday morning (28 March) I was headed down to Delacroix/Yscloskey/Hopedalewith the Jackson Cuda 12.0 to see if the reds & trout would be cooperative. Sweetwater Marina was jammed (incl. several yaks) so headed towards Hopedale. I stopped at the Race Trac in Chalmette around 7:30, Yscloskey bridge to check it out about 8:00, before continuing down to Bridgeside Marina where I eventually....
Can a guy fish from the bank or dock and catch a fish? Bringing my sons car to him in Biloxi and would like to see what Venice is all about. We don't have enough time to hire a capt and spend the day fishing on this trip. Planning to stay the night down there some where have a few beers and have some good food. Catching a few bluegill would be enough for....
We had another busy day at Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix. The fishing didn’t really turn on until about 1:30-2:00. Then folks started coming in with a mix of Speckled Trout and Reds. Seems like a lot of the Trout were caught in Four Horse Lake and the Reds were caught scattered all over. The weather is looking good for tomorrow and we have plenty of live shrimp, and we don’t care where you....

While playing some boat stuff yesterday my grand daughter Brooke said G-Pop don't forget your SeaTow, so I called up Capt Rob and he hooked me up while their 2 month's free deal is still going on. It's better than The American Express Card, SeaTow…don't leave home without it!
I have been fishing with my wife a lot lately. She is an avid sportsman and loves fishing all species, especially speckled trout, redfish, bullreds, and catfish. These are pictures she took from some of our fishing trips.
After recommending a cancelation to my group for today because of a blow out, they chose to roll on. Good choice. After a bumpy ride across sister lake we got to the pass and dropped 5 lines with crab. Hooked up and it didn't let up. The big black drum were feeding ferociously and the guys stayed bowed up all morning. We left them biting to go find some bull Reds. One stop nothing. Another spot....
