Fishing ReportMarch 7th Fishing Report by Captain Clinton deArmas

Lake Catherine Island Marina Fishing Report for March 2024.


Moving into March is an exceptional time for fishing.  What makes this month so great?  It all starts with rising water temperatures, and bait beginning to show up.  I personally have already seen water temps in the high 60’s to low 70’s. This will start to move fish from deep holes into shallower waters.  Speckled Trout love when the water temperature gets into the lower to mid 70’s.  It also gets bait on the move so fish are hungry.   Speaking of Speckled Trout.  Remember, the new size and creel limits are in effect.  It’s now 15 per licensed angler.  13-20”.  Of those 15, one can be over 20”.   And no guides catch.


Now as far as other species of fish…. Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead.   These are going to be following bait as the bait moves.  You’ll probably catch them in one spot one day, and gone the next.  However, most of the time they aren’t moving far.   The majority of the time I’m fishing live shrimp under a popping cork close to shorelines.   Bottom fishing would consist of drop shot with live shrimp as well.   Artificial would perform as well considering it’s a moving bait, just be versatile when choosing a color.  As of March 6th, the new redfish size and creel limits have not changed.  But keep in mind… it’s coming.


So speaking of March Fishing.  This is the time of year where weather fronts come through about every other day.  Make sure you monitor your weather conditions prior to your trip.  Set a float plan.  And… WEAR your PFD’s.


Hope to see some awesome table shot photos, and remember to leave one in the water for me.

    Nice comments on the duck hunters and season but everything below (south or east) of) hwy 90 is the WEST zone, not EAST for duck hunting; i know, it makes little sense!!!! So, duck season starts this saturday the 11th of November for rigolets/lake Catherine/lake borgne/biloxi marsh areas.

    Thank you!!
