New Orleans Fishing forecast for
June 2012 - With Summer in full
swing the action will continue to improve almost on a daily basis.
Speckled trout will be thick this month, with the increase in all the
shrimp and bait inshore. Usually a 40 minute run can put you i the thick
of things. Redfish are still plentiful, and they are a very short
distance away, in all the duck ponds, and on the edge of bays that has
some grass. Call now to get it on some of this great summer time action.

Today we had Cheryl and
Steve from Oklahoma and the Blake Couch party from New Orleans. Both groups
had their limit by 7:30 and it was a catch and release frenzy for the next
couple of hours. All fish caught on spoons, it was the hot bait today.
Day two with Ian Simmers. A
little slower than day one, but he still
managed to catch a dozen reds.
Also Capt. Barry had Randy, Greg and David. They caught a
bunch of BIG redfish and released them all. Only keeping some of the smaller
ones for the grill.
All Fish we caught on Falcon Volt Reels and Falcon Coastal
Rods using H&H minnows with an H&H #4 Spinner.
Out with a single today, Ian
Simmers from New York. Capt. Barry had Randall from Whales, Nick from
Britain and Barry from Scotland. 2 of the guys from overseas never fished
before but after about 30 minutes of training and fish catching it didn't
take them long to become pro's. Everyone caught plenty fish again today on
the boats, releasing way more than the limits they kept. Spinner baits and
spoons filled were the baits that filled the chest once again. Sautéed redfish at Jan's Cajun
Restaurant for lunch and some bagged filets to take home for the freezer.
Day two with the Smith's,
Al, Debbie and Ken was just about a carbon copy of yesterday. Capt. Barry
had the Womac party again from yesterday as they called us to book a
follow-up trip and just like yesterday, it was a total red fish slam. All fish caught on spinner baits and

This week has been crazy. Tropical Storm
Debby abruptly cancelled 5 trips by our customers with its uncertain
forecasted tracks which turned out to be great days to fish. I was
disappointed that I wasn't able to get on the water but it happens. However,
the winds decided to pick up over the weekend forcing me to cancel Sunday's
trip. Its crazy how all that works out.
But, when the wind wasn't blowing the red
fishing has been awesome! Even in the blustery wind, we found clean water in
the duck ponds and was able to put a lot of nice fish in the boat.
Today (June 25th)
was an Awesome day of red fishing out of
Lafitte. My clients, Sue Ann and Mark Santoro from California finished with
a nice limit of red fish and a couple of 10 pounders that were released to
fight another day.
On Saturday I had the
pleasure of fishing with Don Michel from Parks, LA. With 20 mph plus winds
the fishing area was very limited. As mentioned above, small bays and duck
ponds were the only place we found fish. Spoons and spinner baits produced
all the fish. He was able to catch a nice mess of redfish and took his limit
back to the dock.
Also Saturday, Capt. Barry had Les, Jerry and Charles.
Same story with the wind but Capt. Barry put the guys on a great shoreline
and they finished off a nice limit in tough conditions.
All fish caught on spinner
baits and spoons with Falcon Coastal rods and Volt reels.

The fishing has
been very good for redfish the past few days, although Saturday turned out
to be the slowest day in a while.
I would like to thank our
clients the Mazur family, the Jim McAdam family and the Ryan Ferrel party
for fishing with us. All fish the past few days have been caught on Shrimp
on the bottom and spinner baits, blk/chart. Our clients LOVE using the
Falcon Coastal Rods and Falcon Volt 2500 Series reels. Get yours today by
Bryan, Wike and Jim brought their buddy Justin fishing for
his last day as a single man. Justin got married Friday night in New Orleans
at the Royal Sonesta Hotel and they caught their limit of fish. They then
headed off for a nice lunch at Jan's Cajun Restaurant.

Three boats out today.
Capt. Barry had the J.R. Cobos family, Capt. Dave
