August 27th, 28th, and 30th, 2013

Had a last minute cancellation and 3 other trips were re-schedule due to bad weather. Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers who has fished with Jean Lafitte Fishing Charters. We have added many more pictures inside of our waterfront lodges and I am sure all of you would be happy to see yourself on the wall of fame.

We'll be back on the water shortly.

Capt. Barry had a group from Florida today. The group caught a nice mess of redfish and had a great time on the water.

Today Capt. Barry had Terri and her husband Evan from San Francisco who came down to catch some of our fighting redfish. They caught about 8 keeper reds with a few smaller ones. All of the fish were released to fight another day.



August 6, 2013

Today I had the pleasure of fishing with Mike Stover from Florida. The fish were biting early and Mike caught enough that we were back at the dock around 11:30 am. Great Day to be on the water. All the fishing were caught on Spinner Baits using Falcon Coastal Rods and 2500 Series Volt Reels.


August 5, 2013

Today I had the pleasure of fishing with the Joelle Eggen family visiting us from Kansas City, Mo. All I can say is that summer is here as the heat index easily went over 100 degrees. The group kept a few for lunch at Jan's Cajun Restaurant and kept a mess to take home. All fish caught on spoons and spinner baits.



August 2, 2013

Today I had the pleasure of fishing with Dr. Chris who was visiting us from Cincinnati while his wife was attending a conference in New Orleans. He was looking to catch his first redfish and he was able to get one 8lbs for his first fish of the day. Dr. Chris caught a good mess and was a good fisherman. All of his fish were  caught on spinner baits and spoons and all released to fight another day.
