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.

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.
