My main targets are speckled trout and red fish, the most sought after saltwater game fish in Louisiana. You will catch species such as black drum, sheepshead, flounder and the occasional Jack Cravelle while on our adventure together. But the trout and reds are the fish we will be after. I will gladly target one over the other at your request.

Spring and summer will find us fishing the outer bays and lakes to Black Bay and Breton Sound at the numerous oilrigs, island and reefs, for rod bending specks and reds. This can be an exciting time when we fish the flocks of seagulls over schools of trout where you can catch trout in almost every cast and sometimes two at a time. When the conditions are right you will enjoy fishing with top water baits at the reefs and islands and getting explosive strikes from monster trout from 2 – 7 lbs. And I don’t want to fail to mention the bull reds 15-30 lbs that you can hook into at any time.

In the fall and winter the fish migrate back into the inland waters, where we will fish trout and reds with mostly lures. This is a great time of year because of the pleasant weather, where you can catch trout and reds in the same place. Mid fall we will target the specks and reds in the shallow lakes and grass flats. As the weather gets cold, we will fish the deep holes where the trout will be stacked up. An added bonus is viewing the abundant ducks, which fill the marsh at this time of year.
