Fishing Reports

Once a week we compile all of the information we've gathered to provide you with a comprehensive fishing report based on the daily information we've gotten from our local fishermen.

Winter Fishing Forecast

With these cold fronts passing through, so are the Redfish. Fishing the main channels in the marshes of the Rigolets and Biloxi Marsh, where outflows meet, have been the most productive.  Reds have been hitting plastics fishing them about two feet under a cork, and also jigging the bottom with a slow retrieve.  Don’t forget about the infamous live cocahoe minnow.  Natures natural winter bait.

April, 2017 - By Mike Gallo

Fishing starts to get consistent in April.  On calm days I’ll be fishing the bridges over Lake Pontchartrain or gas wells in Lake Borgne. Live shrimp is always a sure bet, But plastics will also catch good numbers of Specks in April. When fishing Pontchartrain or Borgne I fish a dropshot with a live shrimp or a 3/8 to ½ oz. Golden eye jig with Dudley’s, Gulp or Matrix bounced off the bottom.

Here Is Your July Forecast...

The heat of summer is upon us. July can still be a productive month. Fishing is best early in the morning or late in the evening and live shrimp is the
best bet for a good day on the water.  Dissolved Oxygen is necessary for marine life and cooler water holds more Dissolved Oxygen.  Cooler water is best found in deep channels or early in the morning and late in the evening.

January 23, 2017

Take advantage of the warm weather we have enjoyed in S.E. Louisiana. The warmer water has the fish actively feeding.  Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum & Sheepshead are all ready to bite your live shrimp fished on the bottom. The deep holes in and around the ICWW have been good.

The bridges over Lake Pontchartrain, Unknown Pass, Millers Bayou & Lake Catherine Pass have all been producing fish as well. On calm days the gas wells in Lake Borgne have produced good catches of Specks with very little boat pressure. Lake Catherine has also been productive. I prefer to fish Lake Catherine with a popping cork fished about 2.5 ft. deep with a live Shrimp or your favorite plastic. With warmer than average water temperatures, fish will move often. You should move often if you are not

I hope the information helps your Angling Adventure, Thanks
