Re: Grand Isle Fishing
We will be fishing tomorrow outta Bridgeside too. If the wind permits, the beaches on Elmers have been on fire. That's where I'll probably start if the weather cooperates. The big full moon, although a waning tide, should have the big girls on the beaches. I'll be throwing topwater early and then switching to live. If not there, will head to 4 Bayou.

Hit da beach and fish your way west towards Fourchon. Look for bait and birds and just bounce your way down to the barges hit the pass by bridgeside at slack tide .

Thanks Tony and Cdtm1825. The beaches were where I planned to start. I just found out my fishing trip will have to wait until next week hope the beaches are fishable.

Re: Grand Isle Fishing
We did terrible. Most folks had a tough time today. Got a report yesterday of no fish on Elmer so I went in the back over the reefs. Not much, five trout. I used palstic. Folks I saw throwing live weren't doing much either. Heard the bite has been in the afternoon on a falling tide. We're not going for trout this afternoon, probably will go to the rigs for mangroves, etc. However, Tommy Vidrine an display wife did catch some hammers this morning. His wife had a 6.6 that is the new Star leader. He had a 5.4 too.
