Fishing forecast for February 2018

After a good January, February is shaping up nicely! This month will be all about mother nature. The fish are here, it is all a matter of getting the right conditions to fish. Cold fronts could drop the temps and water overnight. You can hope to catch a lots of Redfish this month, as well as Bass, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Drum, and Flounder. Bass should begin looking for their spawning beds towards the end of the month. As soon as the water temps get right they will begin their spawns. Now is the time to catch some Bass.

Our calendar is filling up fast, book your trip now! Please also share your experience with our customers on Trip Advisor. You can review Jean Lafitte Fishing Charters by clicking here.

We certainly appreciate our Customer's Feedback.

Thanks! Captain EJ.
