Fishing forecast for August - August is usually a very good month for fishing. The trout action is much better, as all the schoolies are growing up, making for nicer catches. The Redfish action should remain hot this month, as the tide will remain high with all the southeasters blowing. Key this month will be the weather.  As long as we stay clear from tropical disturbances, it should make for an exciting month of fishing! Call us now to book your trip as the schedule is filling up fast! Toll-Free 1-877-689-4120.

We will be closed until further notice due to Hurricane Katrina.


As of 9:00 p.m., Katrina is on a path to hit the Lafitte area with Category 5 winds (155+ mph) and a possible 20-25 foot storm surge.


We wanted to inform you all that we are safe and out of the path of this phenomenon. We thank everyone who has called and we appreciate all the offers we have recieved to stay with our clients. My family and I really appreciate it! At this time, we ask for your prayers and with a little luck, we will make it through this very difficult situation.

August 20 - 21, 2005 - Two groups out this weekend with five boats. The Erik Meyer group and the John Gurley group. Four boats including myself fished trout near the gulf and all had  good catches. The fifth boat stayed in and had a box of beautiful reds. My camera battery died before I could take any more pictures but one of my clients took some with his camera. I`ll post a report when I receive them.

August 17, 2005 - Only 4 bass this afternoon and one redfish. With the full moon just a day or so away the bite will probably be after dark. I had to take a picture of this bronze beauty that fell to a tequila sunrise worm. Awesome looking fish.

August 15, 2005 - From 6:30 to 7:45 it was action, action, action. I kept a limit in my live well just to take a picture. The bite last only for an hour so its just being there at the right time. At least 25 fell to tequila surise again today and all fish were released to fight another day.


August 13, 2005 -Another one of those sweet afternoon bass fishing trips. The fish turned on big time from 7 to 8 with over 30 fish being caught and released. Not anything big but just a bunch of nice fish. Tequila sunrise worms was the hot bait for today.


August 12, 2005 - The Junior Wallace group from Wynne, AR. fish with me every year.Today we had a mix bag of fish, reds , trout, flounder and drum. Here are some pictures of some of the fish we kept and also had for lunch at Jan`s.



August 7, 2005 - Fished today with Pierre Legrand and his son Walker. The morning started off slowly but ended with a bang landing over 25 redfish. Here is the father son team with a couple of nice ones. H&H cocahoe's , OD green, pearl belly and shrimp on the bottom were the bait of the day.

August 6, 2005 - Matthew, Chris, Ryon, and Scott here in New Orleans visiting the french quarter joined me today for some louisiana fishing. We made the long run to the gulf only to fine lots of school trout so we came back in and fished for reds catching only three in the 27 inch range.Will post a picture when they email it to me, forgot my camera.

August 4, 2005 - Little trout everywhere along the beach. You just have to hunt and peck to fine some keepers. My guest Vanessa and Jose from Texas caught over a 100 trout, tightline, under a cork and top water on any color. The shrimp are so big the trout cannot get them in their mouth. Once again the thunderstorms chased us in. Here is Jose with a mess for dinner.

August 3, 2005 - The afternoon thunderstorms have made for some great bass fishing the past week. The afternoons have been much better than the mornings. Check this story out. I set the hook on a small bass. I missed  the fish but he took the worm so I put another worm on, made a cast in the same spot the fish hit it again. I set the hook, no fish but I hooked the worm  out of his mouth that he had taken on the previous cast, two grape worms on the same hook and no fish. That was a first. Once again most fish were caught on curly tail worms Henry Bourgeois with a couple of nice bass from this afternoons trip.






August 2, 2005 - Today my friends Mike and Joe and I headed for the gulf to check out the trout. After 20 minutes of trolling the beach we hit a nice school of fish. By the time we had put over 2 dozen in the box a killer thunderstorm drove
us in. Here is a picture of Joe with the little fish that pulled us around the gulf. The fish were caught under a cork, down on the bottom and top water on just about any color.

July 29 - 31, 2005 - From Friday to Sunday I did some short  afternoon bass trips only fishing from 6 to 8:15. Fri. & Sat. produced over 25 bass on both days but the bite slowed down catching only 8 or 10 on Sunday due to no tide movement. All fish were caught on grape and as it got later black grape curly tail worms and all were released to fight another day. Friday I tried fishing from 10 pm to 12 am on a very dark night without having a bite. The next 3/4 moon I`ll try it again.

July 27, 2005 - My guest today the McCann`s , Leroy, Dolores and their daughter Sue from Ohio left the Victoria Inn Dock at 5:45. The first couple of areas we fished had no bait and no fish. On our third stop we found fish hitting on live shrimp, even had a shrimp jump in the boat, that was a first. The fish of the day was a huge flounder caught by Dolores which will be dinner tonight at the Inn. We were chased in by a severe thunderstorm with a mix bag of fish, reds. drum, bass and that awesome flounder. Over 40 fish were boated today much better than the past few trips.
