Went to the rocks of MRGO Friday 7-21-17 and in my nearly 70 years on earth have never seen as many brown (and a few white) Pelicans in one place at the same time. Anyone know why? I'm thinking it's because of so much fresh water keeping the bait fish out. That would explain our 8 hours of effort for 12 fish. Went all the way to Grand Gosier. ☹️

Just learned that Capt. Kerry Audibert died last night at home.

Please do everything you can for his family. As we all know Kerry was a real prince of a man, well respected, world class guide, and just an all around great man. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.

A buddy and I went last Monday south of the RIGOLETS marina on both shores and caught 3 reds, no specks in about 3 hours. Water seemed salty enough to spawn. Few bait fish. Water may still be too warm at 82. We're probably 3-4 weeks away from real good fishing.

Bank fishing with or without a license doesn't amount to a drop of water in the ocean. And by the way I'm sure most people don't realize how much natural resource (fish) are waisted by commercial fisherman and not even a hint of penalty for it.

You've got the right philosophy telling the truth. We know B. S. When we read it. Honesty has always been the best policy, in business at least.
I'm heading out this Sat. Or Sun. If I can find a 1st mate.

I'm an old Geiger with over 50 years of saltwater fishing experience. You may have to spend a little more than 100 bucks but a great reel is the Penn Battle II 3500. You'll never have to buy another reel. To keep the cost down you can get an 'Ugly Stick' 6 ft. or 6-1/2 ft. long. Ask the salesperson for a fast (stiff) rod. With this type you can not only feel the bite sooner and easier but set the hook better so the Reds don't get off. Yes, there are many different ways to fish the many different conditions, way too much to explain in a few paragraphs.
Good luck and pay attention to everything you do, keep very detailed records... fish are habitual.

All of the above are correct. We went out to Delacroix, Hopedale, Shell Beach, Comfort Island and N/E Biloxi Marsh in the past month with poor results. Typicall the trout go out to deeper bays in the heat but few fishermen want to spend time and money to fish Breton Sound regularly. We all may have to wait until fall to catch the numbers we are used to on the inside. ☹️

I admire your sense of adventure and love of outdoors. I know you will be a lifelong fisherman.

Who is operating the drone? Can they hover unattended?

By your post you seem to be an experienced boater. My only comment is as with all new territory be sure of water depth 😖, use the tracking or bread crumb mode on your GPS because it can get confusing. Good luck.

Fish under the L&N Railroad bridge about 3 miles south(down river) from U.S. Hwy 90. Try under the eastern most three 'humps' in the bridge structure. Go on small tides only because water really moves fast through there. Use live or market bait on bottom or Carolina rig (bait suspended 1-2 ft. Off bottom) May need as much as 2-3 ounce wt. depending on tide. Also try the ledge about 150 yards east/southeast of that spot. The shallow area can be fished under a cork 2-3 ft. Or bottom.
Good luck, be patient and thankful for this abundant wonderland. 🐟🐠🐡🐋🎣🐬

Also you can fish shallow water after about 10:00 am when the sun warms the water. Look for oyster reefs since they retain warmth. Fish are cold blooded so their body temp matches their environment. Spring and fall are certainly the best times to fish.
