Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana

A Little Slow and HOT!!!
This fishing on the Island has been a little slow the last few weeks. Rivers need to come down and the water needs to clean up.rn Still been able to put a few good fish in the box over the last few weeks. Sometimes the numbers are there and others times there not, but the size of the fish have been pretty good over the last few weeks. Shrimp have produced the best under a cork and croakers on the bottom have done well in the morning before sun up.rn With that said its Grand Isle summer fishing. I've got a lot of fall dates open in September and October if someone would like to fish. I personally love to fish that time of year because its cooler and the fish will stack up before the transition. Always a good time of year to fish.rnrnThanks Capt.

LOTS OF FUN BUT HARD FISHING WEEKEND
Fishing this weekend was one you don't like talking about, but here it goes.rnrn Making it short and to the point the wind blew all weekend out of the ESE or the SE at about 15 to 20 knots are better. Water was muddy and the fish didnt want to bite.rnrn Still the weekend was divided between family and costumers and we managed to catch a few fish from the marsh to the outer islands around Grand Isle.rnrn Live shrimp all the way every day about 1.5' under a cork.rnrnI now have a boat open for the ABC rodeo(May 28,29,30)if anyone would like to fish this weekend. The weather looks like its going to be better then last weekend.rnrnThanks Capt. Frankrnrn225-202-2584rnrnwww.frank@laidbackcharter.com

TROUT ARE ON THE ISLAND!!!!
Spent last Saturday in the marsh due to wind, but we were able to catch a few trout and redfish. rnrnThen on the Sunday my customers decided to get on another boat at a different marina and didn't tell me, so I left Bridge Side with a pill of live shrimp and full tank of gas. Made two stops and had a limit of specks as most did that day.rn Great trip by myself, because I got to watch my dad and one of his friends catch a near limit themselves. GREAT DAY ON THE WATER.rnrn I'm open next weekend if anyone would like to get in on the action.rnrnThanks Capt. Frankrn225-202-2584rnfrank@laidbackcharter.com

Early Trout
ALMOST LIKE SUMMER FISHING ON THE ISLANDrnrn Fished Friday with a group of guys from North Louisiana. Had two boats running and we put some fish in the box. 71 trout total and six redfish. Done at 1:00 because the same group had a bow trip that night. Trout have shown themselves early this year and it looks like the weather is going to hold and stay warm which means a very good trout year to come.rn Live minnows on the bottom using a carolina rig, and opening night on a 3/8 lead head tight lined. The reds came on a H&H spinner bait.rnrnGot days open for the next month and a half so call and book you trip.rnrnThanks Capt. Frankrn225-202-2584rnfrank@laidbackcharter.com

Oct. fishing NICE
A few pics from the last few fishing trips on Grand Isle.rn The water is right and the weather is great. The fish are starting to show in numbers in the northern bays and marsh. Live bait is still the top choice and the H&H spinner baits are working real well. Southwest canel on the eastside of Leeville was holding a good number of fish this past weekend. Look for birds and you will find the fish.rnrnThanks Capt. Frankrn225-202-2584

FALL FISHING ALMOST IN FULL SWING
Good Morning all.rnrn Grand Isle fishing is some of the best during October. Looks like storms are be held at bay for now, and conditions on and around the Island are getting better every day.rnrn Still using live bait(minnows and crockers)but I have started to introduce artificial bait as well. Martix shad and H&H minnows have had the best results for the past few weekends. Its going to be the color of you choice.rnrn With all that said; I have Oct. 4-5, 24-25-26 open. If you would like to get in on the fall run call me and let know.rnrnThanks Capt. Frankrnrn225-202-2584rnrnwww.frank@laidbackcharter.comrnrnwww.laidbackcharter.com
