Another great day at Shell Beach. Today I helped Capt. Mark with a two boat trip. My three guys hopped on the boat and off we went. Our first stop was in a pond near Four Horse and it was nonstop action. There were some trout out to the middle and cast anywhere near the shore and it was and it was an instant red. It was fast and fun, but most of them were just under sized. There were enough good sized reds around to keep us sticking around. We left there to another area to look for some trout, but instead we ran into more reds filling out our limits and the guys caught a bunch more that were lucky enough to avoid the grill. Ended up with 40 trout, 20 reds, and 10 sheepshead. Fun day with a fun group.

I have some openings next week.

All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campo’s live shrimp on Capt. Rory's United Charters custom rods provided by CUI Products with Penn reels, spooled with Power Pro line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Just Grab it Glove.

The trout are moving into the marsh and that great fall fishing is here. This is some of the best inshore fishing of the year. Get your fall trips booked early before all the weekend and holiday dates fill up. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

Finally some cool weather Trout at Shell Beach. Friday I had the Renshaw group of 3 from Atlanta. The cool boat ride sure was nice for a change, but it warmed up quickly making for a pretty day. Our first stop was where we found some birds diving where the tide was falling out a pass connecting two lagoons near Lake Robin. We had to weed through some throwbacks, but the keepers were really nice. The guys put near 60 on ice before the bite slowed down. They really wanted to catch some reds so off we went to a pond I like and it was on. Limited out on reds and must have caught and released 50+ more. Add in a bass, a drum, 4 sheepshead, and dozen more trout and the box was stuffed to the top. Great day of fishing with a fun group of guys.

I have this Tuesday and Wednesday open.

Late report from last Saturday at Shell Beach. I had the pleasure of taking Bert and Molly into the marsh to look for some reds. It was breezy and overcast with the tide rising fast. We made one stop and it was nonstop action. The reds were silly and we limited out in short order. They had a great time catching a bunch more reds before we headed in just in time to beat the rain.

Friday fun at Shell Beach. I picked up John, his wife Nicole and their son Q from their camp. It was Q’s birthday fishing trip and he was ready to hit the water. It was just a little to breezy to run out to the Sound so we stayed closer in. Fishing with Campo’s live shrimp 3’ under a cork they managed to put some good trout on ice with plenty throwbacks to weed through before the wind picked up and killed the bite. Q wanted to catch a redfish so we made move and beat the bank of a bayou. They had fun catching some nice reds for the grill that evening.

Wind from the West fish bite the best. Not really, any kind of west wind is not favorable for our area, but if it is not too bad you can deal with it. Deal with it is what the Chad Mason group did today. After a slightly bumpy ride to the fishing grounds we stop at our first rig and caught a few nice trout, but they would never turn on. We moved over to another rig and once we figured out where they were the corks were going down and pretty trout were flying in the boat. We got up to 65 trout and my crew said they had plenty so we heading in early and beat the heat.

The fishing has been really good and I have some openings next week and the following week. Get those kids out on the water before school starts back. Give me a call, text, or email to get in on the fun.

West wind trout at Shell Beach. Saturday I had the Reliable Disposal crew on the boat. We were greeted to a stiff NW wind that made for a rather sporty ride to our destination. Things started off a little slow, but after bouncing around a few wellheads we got on a couple good bites with Campo’s live shrimp 3’ under a cork. We got lucky with the wind too, as it laid down as we fished making for a nice dry ride back in. The guys had a lot of fun and put together a nice box of fish with 60 trout, 12 reds, and 6 heads.

It’s been a good June so far at Shell Beach. The summer weather is here and so are the trout. We have mostly been fishing deep in Breton Sound targeting larger trout with good success, but having to hunt around from rig to rig catching several trout till the bull reds or sharks take over. This makes for a lot of exciting action and ice chest stuffed to the top with fish. As good as it has been, it will only get better and better as we head into and through July. Speaking of July, I have some open dates available so call, text, or email me to get your trip in the books.

Funky weather Friday at Shell Beach. When the David Broussard group showed up at the dock there was quite a light show going on in the area. Good thing was most of it was clearing out as we pulled out the slip. With the wind blowing a bit too much to get out to the Sound and plenty of storms in the area we set up in a semi protected area off the MRGO. The bite was not fast, but the trout were very nice so we sat there and worked on them with live shrimp 3’ under a cork. With more rain building and a good box of trout we headed in just before noon beating the weather.

I have some open days next week, and the weather looks great.

Slammed them today at Shell Beach. I had the Renshaw group from Atlanta today and it was not a typical trip for them. Generally when Brian comes to town the wind blows like no one business, but today it was clam as could be. We ran out into the Sound and got on a decent trout bite putting close to 60 in before it died. Our shrimp were running low since we lost a lot of them this morning for some reason, but Capt. Jakamo saved the day giving me his remaining shrimp as they were done and headed in. We hit one more rig and that was all it took to fill the box with 125 trout, 1 red, and 3 sheepshead. Fun time on a beautiful day.

Tough Tuesday at Shell Beach with the Jim Walther group. I say tough, but it really was not. We started off at a small rig in Eloi and got a decent trout bite going. The trout were not quite as nice as the day before and there were a lot of croakers and white trout mixed with the throwbacks. With the wind dead calm and the tide moving so we headed to the Sound to look for the big trout Jim likes. We bounced around a bunch of rigs picking up a few here and there, but could not get a hot bite going except for the bull reds that would not leave us alone. Oh, and the big shark that ate one of the sheepshead. Everyone had a great time and we ended up with a nice box of 66 trout, 3 reds, and several sheepshed.

Monday Trout haul at Shell Beach. I had the Tim Bonura group on board. Conditions were nice, so we headed straight out into to the Sound. We made only one stop at a small wellhead. The Trout bite would start and stop, but we stuck with it and were done by 11. Campo’s live shrimp 3’ under a cork did the damage.

A couple of late reports for the end of April from Shell Beach. Both days we had to deal with wind and really low water limiting our options, but dealing with the hand we were dealt we ended up with full boxes of fish. Lots of big reds released with a few kept along with plenty of Heads, and 35 or so Trout.

Shell Beach head hunting. Friday Stephen LaCoste and his sons Cole and Christian joined me for a run into the Sound. There was a little chop on the way out, but it calmed down and got slick as we got further out. The first rig we hit started out slow with way too many catfish. We made a move and found another rig that looked to be holding fish and tried it out. It did not take long and poles were bent over with drags ripping. The boys filled up the box with a bunch of big Sheepshead and a couple Reds. They had a blast and wore themselves out.

Big fish beat down in Shell Beach today with the Chad Bilotti group from Atlanta. Today started out a little windier than yesterday and I was not sure we could get out in the Sound, but it was not too bad. Our first stop started off slow with a bunch of catfish. We then ran to another rig and it was loaded with fish. It was big head after big head with a bull red thrown in every once in a while. Could not get any easier, just drop down a dead shrimp on a jig head and hold on. It was a lot of fun and they filled up the box in no time.

Shell Beach meat haul today. The Royce family were my guests of the day and a good day it way. The weather was perfect so we headed deep into the Sound. We made two stops and filled the boat with fish and let a bunch go for another day. This Reds and Heads bite is nuts right now and as easy as it gets. The kids had a great time, were worn out, and brought home a whole lot of fish to fry.

August 17 at 8:57am

It is not about the boats taking the food away from the predators causing the kills. It is the predators getting caught in the nets. They use huge purse seines that are corralled around the large schools of pogys. These schools are usually spotted by the commotion of jack, sharks, and reds feeding on the schools of pogys. No one can tell me that those nets do not catch everything in the water and that our game fish are not being slaughtered as bycatch. Pogys are the base of the food chain so if the pogy industry is not kept in check it could cause a total collapse of our fishery.

August 14 at 5:30pm

It has been another so so trout year. We have still been doing well, but we have been having to work for them and very little consistency. I have also noticed a lot less bait in the water this year. I feel this past hard winter was tougher on the trout than anyone first thought. Although there were no massive fish kills reported I feel there were a lot of trout that died slowly afterwards and never surfaced. This could explain the lack of small schoolies as they are hit the hardest by poor conditions.

Too much freshwater and high west winds again this year have things more than a little off. Once again this year the river stayed very high for a long time. You could count the days we have had a E or SE wind this year on one hand. I don't care who you are, these make for tough trout conditions. The entire east side of the river has gotten remarkably fresher and fresher the last several years. This has shifted breeding a feeding grounds as trout look for suitable conditions. This means fishermen will have to change their ways and places too. Remember, trout can live in pretty fresh water, but need salty water to spawn, and spawning in what they are supposed to be doing this time of year.

On the up side mother nature has a way of filling any voids in fish populations, so with a little weather cooperation the trout should make a major rebound. Regardless, October can't get here fast enough.

I have seen Breton Sound covered in dead bull reds many times. You can not tell me that it these fish kills are NOT from the pogey boats. I have seen it way too many times. I know it is a profitable business and several good products come from the harvesting of them, but over fishing of Menhaden is what killed the Chesapeake Bay area and the east coast years ago. You simply can not remove the major food source and not have a ecosystem collapse.

A comment titled: Re: summertime blues in response to a report titled: summertime blues

It's a mix of the really cold winter and extremely fresh water. There were not massive fish kills, but there were some and probably more than anyone found. The ones hit the hardest were the undersized ones that would have been our keeps now. Combine that with the fresh water displacing spawning trout and you end up with a very inconsistent year. Good news is nature responds well to these things and rebounds with bumper crops the following years.

A comment titled: Re: Shell beach trout?? in response to a report titled: Shell beach trout??

It has been a funny year for trout so far. We have been doing well way out in Breton Sound when conditions allow, but we have been having to work for them. The fish are there, the consistency is not. The entire area is really fresh right now and this low salinity is not what spawning trout are looking for. One thing I have noticed this year is the massive amounts of small croakers and pinfish all over the place, both inside and outside. I have never seen so many and they make fishing with live bait a pain in the ass.

I really do expect things to get a little better and more consistent in July. July typically is one of our best trout fishing months, you just have to deal with the heat.

I stand corrected. This has changed from what came out when the EFP originally was issued. So looks like it yes in state waters during state season. Thank you ShanpperSnagger.

3. Are charter boats allowed to participate in the EFP study?

No. If you are a state charter captain (those who do not have a federal Gulf of Mexico charter/headboat permit for reef fish), you may only fish for red snapper in state waters (within the 9 nautical mile state water boundary) when the state recreational red snapper season is open. You may not fish federal waters unless you have a federal Gulf of Mexico charter/headboat permit for reef fish.

June 01 at 4:48pm
A comment titled: Re: Venice of Red snapper in bay boat in response to a report titled: Venice of Red snapper in bay boat

Unless they have a federal reef fish permit for their boat they will not be fishing red snapper this year in state or federal waters. With the new management rules there is no more snapper fishing in state water on a charter boat unless they have the reef permit, something not many if any inshore charter boats have.

I use 1/0 Khale hooks. You can go to a 2/0, but I prefer the smaller hook on shrimp. Forget treble hooks, I hate them. One trick for Khale hooks is to not set the hook. Forget you ever saw a Bill Dance hook set. A khale hook will work a lot like a circle hook and when jerked hard will pop right out the fishes mouth without hooking it. Just reel fast to take up slack and get some pressure on the fish and the hook will turn and bury it's self.

A comment titled: Re: Boat Re-fueling Issue in response to a report titled: Boat Re-fueling Issue

Could be that vent line is clogged. Try using a piece of hose that fits over the vent and blow through it. Make sure vent line is not too long creating a bow or low point in it. Gas can fill the bowed area blocking air flow, making fueling up a nightmare. My Blazer Bay was really bad about this. By shortening the vent hose it eliminated the low spot and stopped the refueling issues.
