Whatâs the best conditions for fishing the surf in Grand Isle/Elmerâs Island when considering wind direction, tide, solunar tables, etc? If you canât get all three right at the same time, which is very rare, whatâs most important to you?
Heading to the Island June 7-10 for a long weekend with the family. Just getting some help or advice about the surf fishing. I know a lot depends on wind, tide, water clarity, but figured this time of year it should be decent. Also, crabbing should be pretty good as well I'm guessing. Any info would help. Thanks!
What's the deal with crawfishing at South Farm? Last post I remember was that it was closed. That was a few weeks or month or so ago. Is it open and how's the water level? Anybody been and catching any crawfish? The boys are done with school next week and was thinking of taking them. Thanks for any help!
I live on Claycut Bayou in Baton Rouge which flows into the Amite. We also have a small neighborhood pond. For years, we would catch a good number of sac a lait including some really nice ones this time of year. Well, our neighborhood and the pond flooded in the Great flood of 2016, resulting in the neighborhood pond and Claycut bayou as one for a couple days. I haven't caught but maybe 5 sac a lait since! Could the flood have this negative of an effect on the fishing. Thoughts? Thanks!
Has anyone hunted South Farm lately for the Tuesday/Thursday lottery? If so, how have the crowds been showing up? Iâve never done it and wondering if my chances of being drawn and if itâs worth it. Would like to take my son and Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
Heading to the Island to celebrate my sister's 50th this coming weekend. Staying in a camp on the beach. Any reports on if the specks are still there spawning or already moved in? Any reds being caught in the surf? Any crabs still there? Just looking for some helpful info. Thanks!
I am planning a birthday weekend for my sister late September early October to Grand Isle. Is the surf fishing and or crabbing any good at this time. I'm thinking crabbing may still be okay but fishing not so much. Any help would be appreciated!
Going to take my boys crabbing next week before school starts up. Thinking of either running to Rockefeller (Price Lake Road) or Elmer's Island. Anybody hit either one of those areas lately? Any advice/tips? Thanks!
Making a trip with Ryan Lambert's Cajun Fishing Adventures next Friday with my son. Looks like the weather should cooperate with a cool front coming through early next week. Forecast for Friday is 80deg winds S 5-10. Never really understood the 'what winds are best' theories. Anyone make a trip done there recently and how'd y'all do? Looking forward to a good time!
Nice Sac au lait my son caught in the neighborhood pond!
Anyone been to South Farms recently? I usually take my boys once a year and haven't had a chance to yet. I did read a little less than a month ago that there was very little water and crawfish were really small. I'm guessing the recent rains had to have helped with the lack of water. Any advice. Thanks!
Looking to possibly make a weekday guided hunt before the season ends. This week if West or Coastal, and/or this or next week if East. Any suggestions would be great. I live in BR and closer to here would be preferable but not necessary.
Thinking of taking my two boys to do some crabbing on Price Lake Rd in Rockefeller this week. Any tips or reports from there? Also, I see where people catch shrimp there. Is this possible without a boat? Like using a cast net? Thanks for any help!
Anybody been doing any crabbing in Fourchon or Grand Isle recently? I'd like to take my boys. I live in BR and have gone to Bayou Lacombe before but only caught very little ones from the bank. I don't have a boat, so looking for somewhere easy. Side of the road, beach, bridge, etc. Any tips or help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Any information or advice or tips anyone can give on crawfishing at South Farms in Sherburne! Thinking of taking my two boys and have never been there. Thanks!
Making a guided bowfishing trip tomorrow night. After that gonna head out Fri Morn to look for some fish in the Golden Meadow area. Any tips or areas would help. I know this cool front and North winds could shake things up a bit. Any help appreciated. Thanks!!
Thinking of taking my two boys to Elmers Friday morning. Any reports of trout still being there on the beaches? Weather looks a lot better at he end of this week too! Any help would be appreciated!
Is crabbing in Grande Isle still good around Labor Day weekend? Thinking of heading down there with the kids that weekend. Any advice appreciated!
Heading to GI June 4-7 with the family and ready to do some crabbing and fishing! Will the trout and crabs be running in the surf at this time? Any other tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Don't trout at some point run the beaches? And if so when do they do this and for how long? I'm making a trip to the Island June 4-7 and just wondering if this might be a good time for this. Thanks!
