The Fishing Got Even Better

Book Your July Fishing Trip Now!

As of our last report, we didn’t think the fishing could get any better. And then it did! The redfish are totally on fire. One day this week we ran a three boat charter. All three boats had 20 in the box by 7am. On my boat we caught 50 redfish in an hour! That’s what Louisiana charter fishing is all about.

There are a few keys to the incredible fishing right now. One is the abundance of bait. Small crabs, shad, and mullet are everywhere in the marsh. Another thing that is helping the bite is the submerged aquatic grass. The young crabs and baitfish hide out in these grass beds. The redfish use the grass beds to target bait and we are keying on grass beds to find the fish. Lastly, the water levels dropped recently when a westerly wind blew pretty hard. When the water dropped, the fish had to leave areas that became to shallow. This concentrated the fish we are catching.

One of the great things about fishing with a redfish guide Louisiana style is that we know how to navigate the marsh when the water levels drop. You certainly have to be careful about running your boat into shallow places and getting stuck. Luckily, the guides at Louisiana Fishing Charters have plenty of experience and we can get our clients on the fish without any boating issues.

We hook our clients up with popping corks and live shrimp and have them throw close to the grass beds. Our New Orleans fishing charter trips get pretty crazy when everyone on the boat is hooked up fighting redfish, but that’s what we live for.

Our lodge is nice and cool this summer and ready to host your group. The fishing is incredible and our chef is ready to cook up some New Orleans style cuisine. Come see what summer time in Delacroix is all about.

Best Redfishing We’ve Ever Seen

Book Your June Fishing Trip Now!

“I’ve never seen this many redfish in the marsh.” Those words right there should be the quote that etches the summer of 2018 into Louisiana fishing infamy. We’ve heard so many people say they have never seen so many redfish in the marsh so far this summer. We know that last year was a great spawn for the redfish. We caught hundreds and hundreds of small redfish throughout the fall. Now those small redfish have grown up a bit and they are lighting up the marsh this summer. If you are considering New Orleans red fishing trip, you have to come soon.

It’s not often that we get super excited as charter captains. We are fortunate and blessed to fish much more than the average angler so we get to see a lot of good fishing days. But it really has been remarkable in Delacroix lately. The sheer amount of fish is staggering. Early limits and then catch and release for fun. This a summer that a redfish guide Louisiana will look back on and remember.

We are focusing on grass beds. The west wind last week blew hard and dropped the water levels out in the duck ponds. That stacked the fish up where there’s 2ft of water or more. We find a good looking grass edge and throw popping corks right outside the edge. We are using live shrimp with light jigheads. Typically where there is grass and clean water, there is redfish. You just have to be careful about throwing the bait in the grass. Try to stay right outside of it.

If you plan on coming to Delacroix soon just be aware that the water is still low as of now.

We have lodging available at the Pelican Roost Lodge and our Fishing Cabins. If you want to come on fishing trips New Orleans style give us call. We will be glad to take you.
