The Rigolets / Lake Catherine in Southeast Louisiana

WORLD CLASS SPORT FISHING @ THE RIGOLETS
The october full moon with the big cold front last week is pushing all the big flounders out of Lake Pontchartrain and the lower Pearl River headed offshore to winter.All you have do is find a staging area between the Rigolets and Bayou Caddy.Any bait that is white in color either plastic or cut bait rigged texas or jig head will work.Once you set up on a staging area just be patient.They will make runs though an area every 30 minutes to an hour with everyone on board bowed up.These fish are on the 3 lb average with 5 to 7 lb's common.

My crew of 2 made a run due south out of Bayou Caddy MS in search of REDFISH.We hit the marsh around the 3 mile area to find dirty water.The strong Northeast winds did not stop Danny & Jenny.They come down every year for some hard fighting shallow water action.They love sight casting to the BULLDOZERS of the marsh.I set them up with shrimp under corks & gold spoons.We make a couple of moves & bingo the bite was on!The Reds were up in the gin clean water up tight on the lee shore.They just could not turn down the shrimp under corks & gold spoons which made fishing easy & fun for my couple.All 14 Reds (3-8 lbs)were sight casted to which made it a heart pumping day.The fishing is only going to get better as we get into the fall.LET'S GO FISHING! 1-888-734-2469 www.fishinglouisiana.net

1 CHASING TAIL Charters 2 DAY BILOXI MARSH REPORT
My crew for Friday & Saturday were Mr.Daryl Jackson & son Daryl Jr.from outside Little Rock,Ark.They were pumped up on fly fishing the famous BILOXI MARSH for Redfish.So who do you call, Capt.John Haller with over 50 years experience fishing the back waters of the marsh.I was also told that this will be thier first time fly fishing for the hard fighting shallow water Redfish.Man,I knew they were in for a treat.I also told them the baits of choice were the Clouser fly,Flexso crab,& spoon fly.They took my advice.The fly of the day went to the crab.They were sight casting to so many Reds that I lost count,but my crew stayed with it fly fishing in 20 kts se winds.Believe me fly fishing in that kind of weather will work you out.I was able to put them in some real skinny water.The guys did great catching 10 fat Reds(16-28)& a few Trout mixed in.

Thanks Daryl Sr.& Jr.

The marsh is HEATING UP & I'am not referring to the weather.

I have also been running deep into the Biloxi Marsh for Northshore Redfish icon Capt.Mike Gallo.We have been slamming the Red's(3-8lb.range).The Speck's are a little hard to catch do to all the MUDDY WATERS.Just keep moving till you find good water and it's on.
It looks like a great season with all the pictures of sow trout bring caught in the marsh and all the brown shrimp showing up.
