April 29th - May 5, 2013

This past week had rainouts on Monday and Tuesday. Another cold front came through again (unheard of for this time of year) and the temperatures dropped into the mid-40's. Our customers still enjoyed the unseasonable temperatures though and caught lots of fish at the same time.

Nathaniel and Karen Sarabura from Canada fished with me on Wednesday. On Friday I had Jane , Gerrard and Jake. Great fishing on both days catching 50 or more fish on both days.

Saturday Capt.Dave had the San-Miguel's from Maryland It was a trout day, keeping a few for lunch at Jan's . Capt. Barry also had a good day with some good guys from north Louisiana. Casey Plummer, Dusty McHale, Timothy Shaw, Rob Owens, David Smith, Chad Domangue and Richard Heard

Today, Capt. Barry had Wayne from North Carolina. They fished with strong northwest winds following the front but was able to catch 15 redfish and they kept 3 for dinner :)

This upcoming week myself and our other captains will be fishing for 17 days straight. We'll try to keep the reports flowing into the site so check back often to stay in touch with the fishing in Southeast Louisiana.


April 25th - April 28th, 2013

Lots of Trout! Daniel, Jerod and Andy from Indiana spent three days at the lodge and fished two days. The guys had great catches on both days. All fish caught on gulps under a cork.

Awesome day of fishing with the boys from Shreveport , John , Joey and Jonathan. Had a couple of 12 lb plus reds and some beautiful trout.

When we left the dock this morning the weather was wonderful. Around 11am though the skies changed and it got ugly in a hurry. My guests today were Bill and Kerry Cason from Texas and they were able to boat a bunch of fish before the bad weather set in. We were forced to call it a day around 11:30.


April 23, 2013

Today was Day 2 with Chip and John. The guys had another productive day on the water and even took advantage of my favorite ways to fish redfish... TOP WATER!

Have you ever thought about coming to New Orleans for vacation but don't want to stay in the city itself?

Well that's just what our customers today did! Our group today was picked up at our first-class waterfront lodge just feet from their bedsides and off they went for today's trip.

Capt. Barry and myself got both groups on trout and redfish today. The bite was not the greatest, but both groups were good fisherman and it made the job a lot easier today! Summer is about here, book now on a true New Orleans Vacation just 30 minutes from the French Quarter.


April 19-21, 2013

A Strong cold front pushed through the area on Friday, dropping temperatures into the 40's! Its rare in Southeast Louisiana that we get weather that cool so late. After the front pushed through we were also forced to fish with 25+ mph winds from the North and Northeast pushing all of the water out. It was a tough weekend of fishing but our customers still managed to boat alot of nice catches. We are ready for summer!

When we left the dock this morning in 25 knot winds I did not think we were going to catch many fish. I decided to head for the interior marsh with the intention of fishing what I call small water, usually that's where you will find clean water. Our first three stops produced a few reds, drum and a couple of nice catfish. The fourth stop was the honey hole, probably caught fish non-stop for two hours, all reds and black drum. I would like to thank Linda, Laura, Kevin and Rick from Minnesota for fishing with me, hope you enjoy the four fish we kept for lunch at Jan`s. All fish caught on shrimp under a cork.


April 17, 2013

Kevin, Christopher and Quinn with their lunch at Jan's. All fish caught on shrimp under a cork. The kids had a ball and so did mom and dad, thanks Peter and Valerie, the boys were great.


April 16, 2013

Today I had Tom and Dick who stayed at our fishing lodge the night before. The guys fished with me today while their wives enjoyed their day at the waterfront lodge. The whole group had a great time and all fish were released to fight another day.



April 15, 2013

Jeff, Corey and Mitzi here on a medical convention took a break to try some Louisiana fishing. Today was one of the better days that I've had in the past week. Several nice reds and 50 plus keeper trout, only keeping 10 for their lunch and my dinner, thanks guys. All fish caught on Berkley swimming minnows under a cork using Falcon rods and Volt reels.

Mitzi's First Fish EVER!

Big Jay Stokes who is the founder of Break-Away Outdoors from Mississippi joined me today. They provide hunting and fishing adventures for children who normally do not have those opportunities. Great organization and keep it going.


April 10-11, 2013

Trips Cancelled on these days due to inclement weather

Jim Burks and his wife with a few nice reds keeping only two for lunch.


April 6-7, 2013

This weekend the weather was a bit warmer but still unseasonably cool for April in Southeast Louisiana. However, the Getty Party fished with us and also a group of guys from Canada. The fishing was miserable on Saturday at best but much improved today. The guys from Canada hammered the trout this morning. If we could finally move out of jacket weather and into shorts weather the fish are ready to turn on fire. Thanks to everyone that fished with us this week. Please come back and see us soon!


April 5, 2013

Today we had 3 boats out fishing on this very cold and windy day. The Meyers party from New Jersey worked very hard for their catch and also Danny and his Mom caught several nice redfish. Jamie, Eric and Mary also fished hard today and finished with a mess of trout and several nice redfish. All fish were caught on Falcon Rods and Reels. Lets hope the warmer weather this weekend helps the fishing out.



April 3, 2013

The weather has been pretty bad the last couple of days forcing the cancellation of 5 fishing trips. However, after the rain passed yesterday we were able to get in a private swamp tour in the afternoon with the Mitchell family. Madison with her 4 ft gator, you go girl!
