Just a tidbit of info for those using the belle chasse ferry. the big ferry is in for repairs for about 8 months(according to the operator friday). they are running a smaller ferry now and it may transport 1-2 boat at a time. Report: took a short trip Fri afternoon and found some specks in wreck bay. Too windy to fish anywhere else. And Errol if u read this give me a call, I lost your contact....
Some info for the snapper fisherman. Went fishing the rigs out of empire sat and we were fishing at some of the rigs 7-8 miles south of jetties. Caught a good bit of red and mangrove snappers. Was boarded by wildlife out there and they did their inspections and wasnt concerned about the snappers that we had.
We are used to seeing good reports but i guess bad reports are just as valuable. Two of us attempted to fish MG yesterday. Points in bay chene, shoreline of bay jimmy, and points in Magnolia marsh. One throwback trout. Only good thing about trip was there was no cleanup. Wondered if anybody else did any better. Dont know whats wrong with the waters around there but its been a miserable couple of....
Well its time to replace trailer tires. Just seeing what everyone is running on there trailers and where to get it in New Orleans. Want something thats gonna last more than 1 year, because it seems Im replacing tires every year. This is for a single axle trailer.
Fished the pt Sat. Couple specks in
second bay and couple reds in wreck. Decided
to see what it was like in black bay. Wrong
decision as the rollers made for bumpy ride. At
least the boat can take it. Water looked pretty
stained on inside and was still cold. Maybe 2-3
weeks and it should be on.
Got a question for those familar with Delacroix. Was wondering can you run that pipeline canal from grand point bay north to 4 horse lake. I see it on google maps and pass it up while fishing the Pt but always wondered if I can actually run in it. A report from Saturday. Was able to haul out 37 trout and around 10 whites while fishing Bay Law and Battleground Bay. Most of it caught under birds.....
With snapper season around the corner, was wondering how far out of empire jetties would I have to run for snapper. Remember going with friend last year and didnt seem too far. Only taking bayboat out so the closer, the better. I've done it out of venice but really didn't want to run all the way down there for a couple of snapper tugs.
Got a question about fishing Black Bay during this time of year. Never fished it during winter. Would there be sheepshead and bull reds out under the platforms in Black Bay this time of the year. If the fishing doesn't pan out this weekend in Pt. A La Hache, with the predicted forecast, thinking about heading out to the rigs in BlackBay to soak some shrimp unless its gonna be a wasted trip.
Fished the Pt today. Caught fish at every stop. Second, wreck, battleground, island, american. Problem was that it was only 1-2 fish. Did hit a point loaded with big reds to get the limit. Ended up with around 13 trout, 5 reds, and even a green trout.
On the subject of boat trailer lights and was wondering is it required by law to have that strip of three smaller lights that is usually mounted near the middle on the rear frame between the two turn lights.
Wondered if anybody has any ideas whats happening at the jefferson canal launch in Magnolia past myrtle grove launch. Went driving on 23 last weekend and saw that it was baricaded off. That was where I launched last year while fishing on the westbank.
Fished biloxi marsh yesterday and the water was low. Thanks to the 3 guys in a flat boat that got us off of a flat. Saved us from waiting for SeaTow. 4 of us ended up with about 35 trout and six reds. Probably could have limited out on reds but ran around all day looking for the trout. All the trout were fat and nice in size.
Was able to limit out on reds and trout fishing the biloxi marsh yesterday in about 4 hours. Had to leave the trout biting. Artificials tightlined or under a cork, didn't matter. Best fishing day ever. Hope it continues for a while.
