Fishing forecast for May
- Summer is almost upon us, and the fish have arrives. Redfish
are still constant catches when the wind isn't howling. The Reds are
starting to show up in the duck ponds as the tides are getting higher,
and grass is getting thicker. The next 6 months should begin fabulous
fishing with the approach of Summer, spawning, and the shrimp season.
Our calendar is filling up fast, book your trip now!

Had the pleasure of fishing with Darlene Durrett and Dennis
Laborde from Minden, Louisiana. We fished an afternoon trip on
Saturday. Fishing was tough but we did manage to catch a limit of
redfish with only two or three throw backs. Sunday had the same
pair and fishing in 25 knot winds was about as tough as it gets,
two reds and one drum. Just about enough for a meal. Capt. E.J.
Jean Lafitte Charters.
Bring on June!!!
May 29, 2004 - Sunday's Trip
was with Mr. Charles Bramlett and family from Monticello, Georgia
with a nice limit of redfish and a few bay snapper.
The evening trip didn't go as well due to the near gale force
winds we had. Still managed a good catch with, 12 reds, 2
flounders, and a few bay snapper. Back out again tomorrow.
May 28, 2004 - Monica and her
husband Junior, used their Christmas gift certificate a (Jean
Lafitte Fishing Charters fishing trip} to catch their limit of
reds and a few bay snapper! Would you believe sheep head on a
spinner bait? Great fishing guys!
May 25, 2004 - Had three
people today, fishing was good with clean water and a really high
tide the redfish were aggressive. Managed a limit of reds before
8:30, and then decided to go big fish hunting. Managed one red
around 28 inches, and about 9 pounds. The fishing action is on
fire. Call now to get your trip!
May 22, 2004 - Fished today
with Bill and Sylvia Furlong, two of my regular customers from
Mandeville, La.. Fished the same area that we have been fishing
all week, and it was show time as soon as we got there. Had our
limit of reds by 7 am and released fish for two hours. We must
have landed more than 75 reds. Most were 15 to 20 inches. I hope
this action lasts for a few more days. Call now, we are booking
fast!!! Capt. EJ
May 21, 2004 - Had two great
guys and one of their sons today for some red hot action. The bite
started as soon as we arrived and never stopped. I have been
fishing the same area the last few days with outstanding results.
We have been averaging well over 50 fish, per trip, over the last
week. Would have posted names and pic, but the guys were playing
hooky from work. Call us to get in on the excitement.
May 20, 2004 -
great day the kids had catching redfish. Tim and Elvia Haynes and
their two kids from Metairie caught over 40 redfish, a couple of
bay snapper, and 5 or 6 flounders. The bait of choice for today
was dead shrimp, stiff lined on the bottom. We kept the kids limit
for dinner and released the rest to fight another day. Capt. E.J.
May 18, 2004 -
Ridlon, Dana Hensley, and Jerry Hensley from Minnesota caught more
than 50 redfish. Although only about half of them were keepers the
action was very hot as you can see by the smiles on there faces.
Give me a call if you want to book a trip. See you on the water

May 15, 2004 - Fished with
Trey and Robby Diaz of Metairie, LA today. Fishing was fantastic
despite a few rain squalls. The redfish in the duck ponds are
really aggressive right now. The bait of choice today was a
purple and chartreuse H&H Cochahoe with number four spinner
attached to a 1/4 oz. jig head. With a really high tide and lots
of grass in the ponds, the redfish are stacked up in there for
now. Fishing should be superb over the next week.
May 14, 2004 - Fished with 2
regular customers today. With the SE wind that his been blowing in
the last couple days it has made the tide extremely high, and
turned the redfish bite on. We were able to catch about 20
gorgeous reds, that almost looked like goldfish due to the
immaculate water in the marsh. Back at it tomorrow. Call now to
take advantage of the great pre-summer action.
May 11, 2004 - What a
difference a day makes. Fished today with Andy Pappas, Cris Cumley
and Mike Twamley from Colorado. Probably one of the best trips
that I have had in ten years out of Lafitte We left the dock at
6:15 and headed for this point where I have been catching a few
redfish. We started off with dead shrimp under a cork casting
toward the bank . We managed to catch a few reds. I looked behind
me and saw fish breaking the surface so I picked up a rod with a
beetle and popping cork and made a few cast. Meanwhile one of the
guys hooked on to a redfish so I turned around to net it not
realizing that I had laid my bait in the water. When I heard the
splash I knew it was to late, (Goodbye rod & reel.) I picked up
another rod and tied a jig head with a treble hook trailer. I did
hook my rod but I was catching a redfish on every cast with only a
jig head and treble hook and no bait. These guys could not believe
it and neither could I. They removed the shrimp and started
casting just the jig head. In two hours we boated over 60 redfish
on a ¼ oz jig head and well over 100 redfish for the morning and
kept only a few for dinner. I have heard stories of catching fish
on only a jig head and today made a believer out of me. With many
years of fishing experience this was a first for me. Andy wanted
me to put his phone number if anyone did not believe this report.
970-856-7141. Give me a call if you would like to book a trip with
us. We have great accommodations and you will guarantee your party
will have enjoyable time Thanks Capt. E.J. and lets go fishing.
May 8, 2004 Fishing was a
little slow today, had a small front pass through the area last
night and it switched the winds to the north, made water muddy and
gave the fish lock jaw. Caught 8 reds, 2 flounders, 1 catfish.
Still a gorgeous morning weather wise. Weather looks nice over the
next couple days, call now to get in on the action!!!
May 5, 2004 - Had the same
group from yesterday, and boy were they ready to get going. Day 2
of the trout slam was on. Hooked up between 75-85 trout today.
Fishing rip currents off of points, and drifting slicks near
diving sea gulls. Another great day weather wise, light wind,
green water, moving tide, almost perfect. All fish were released
May 4, 2004 - Great day today,
weather was nice, had strong current though. Ran towards Grand
Isle to chase the specks today. Water was a pretty green. Caught
between 60-70 trout. All fish were caught on 1/4 oz. jig head,
with pearl beetle, fished about 2 feet under a popping cork. Best
part about the trip today was, all fish were released to fight
another day. True Sportsman. To get in on the action send us an
email or give us a call. fishing should be red hot for the next
couple weeks, as long as weather cooperates.
May 2, 2004 - Fishing has
improved a little, but with all the bad weather and high winds,
the water is very muddy right now. Managed to catch 12 reds, 7
trout and a flounder today.
May 1, 2004 - With bad fishing
conditions the last 3 days due to the weather, we still was out on
the water and managed to catch almost a dozen reds and a few
trout. The fishing will improve once the weather improves
