The winter is over here at Louisiana Fishing Charters and Spring has arrived. The trees are turning green again and the fish have heated up their transition into the Spring patterns at this Louisiana charter fishing service. Our clients are having a blast catching fish in super nice weather. In the morning, temps are in the 60’s and then they heat up to the 70’s by mid-day.
We are fishing the outer edges of the marsh for redfish. We are also experiencing an awesome run of black drum. We are fishing current lines away from the shore line in 4-5 feet of water. This is the same pattern you would normally fish for speckeld trout. We are using corks with 2.5 ft leaders and market shrimp.
The black drum is a cool species and tastes just as good as his cousin the redfish. Some folks will say that black drum are harder to clean but when you fish with LFC we do all the cleaning for you! The black drum also fights just as hard if not harder than the redfish and you can cook them any way that you would normally cook a redfish.
February and March can be some of the toughest times to fish in Delacroix because the fish are constantly on the move as they transition to new areas and patterns. We’d definitely recommend fishing with a Louisiana fishing guide to see how we handle the adversity this time of year.
We are also having a blast with our bowfishing charters. This is a cool new redfish guide Louisiana service that we are offering. It’s a big challenge and a great opportunity to experience the nightlife here in Delacroix.
Also, crawfish are back in season and if you stay with us we can arrange a crawfish boil if you like. We have a full service lodge or smaller cabins available for our charter guests.
