With some really strong wins we made the day by landing this 42 lb monster that was taunting us with his tail.

Summer Temps Lead to Winter Fish

Image

I had Will and Andrew from Chicago on the boat this weekend.  Mother nature dealt us a hand we could not help but take advantage of.  Got on the water to calm winds and temps running in the mid 70′s.  Luckily for us the red fish were as happy as we were about the warmer temps and they were floating high and showing off!  Will and Andrew are both excellent fly casters and they were able to lock in on some massive reds and capitalize with some accurate shots to hungry fish.  Sunday’s temps were similar and resulted in the same experience except that Andrew hooked and landed a red fish of a lifetime.  After a 10 minute fight I snatched this slob of a red that went just shy of 30 pounds on the boga!  All in all a great weekend of fishing that boated 4 fish over 20 pounds!

Offshore Fishing Trips


Offshore fishing in the Mississippi river delta in lower Plaquemines Parish is one of the best offshore destinations in the world!  Captain Michael Pittman has been fishing these waters since high school and knows the waters thoroughly.

The nutrients dumping out of the Mississippi river bring so much life to the waters around the delta it makes it hard to have a bad day offshore. Equipped with a 36 ft Contender we will show you how to take advantage of this fertile fishery.

Our target species for conventional depends on the season but includes Tuna, Wahoo, Marlin, Cobia, Snapper and other reef fish. Some main seasons to be aware of is Summer Snapper fishing, Winter Wahoo, and fall trophy Tuna.

Fly fishing offshore starts in May and goes through November.   For these trips Captain Michael Pittman will be teaming up with Captain Miles LaRose to ensure your trip is a success.  Captain Michael knows the offshore game while Captain Miles knows the fly game.  These two have spent the last 3 years developing methods to tap into Louisiana’s vast offshore opportunities on the fly.  We can finally say they have it figured out.  There are three groups of species depending on the anglers ability.  For beginner anglers we will stay in relatively shallow water and target Jack Crevalle, Spanish mackerel, blue runners, Cobia and different types of snapper.  For the more experienced anglers we will go a little deeper and target Amberjack, Bonita, larger snapper, King Mackerel, and Mahi Mahi.  For advanced anglers we will be targeting Skipjack tuna, Blackfin Tuna, and Yellowfin tuna.  The rate for advanced anglers may vary according to the distance the tuna are holding offshore.  Of course if the target species are being difficult we will fall back on other species to make the day.

Conventional : Up to 6 people $2200 flat rate.  This includes all gear, fuel, ice, bait, and fish cleaning.

Fly: Up to4 people $2000 flat rate.  This includes all gear, fuel, ice, and fish cleaning.

Fly Fishing Trips

 

Come join one of our many experienced fly fishing guides and let them pole you into position for that fish of a lifetime!

Fly Fishing Trips

Spring/ Summer

This time of year offers anglers the opportunity to see an abundant amount of fish. The name of the game is finding locations that have clean water. Our guides hunt tirelessly to locate areas with abundant vegetation. Densely vegetated ponds and channels act as a natural filtration system cleaning dirty water deposited by our river systems. These protected areas also hold an enormous amount of bait. All these factors combined make for a sight fishing experience filled with numerous shots at eagerly awaiting fish!

Fall/ Winter

This time of year offers anglers the opportunity at a redfish of a lifetime! The colder months bring with them the arrival of giant redfish cruising our outer bays in search of warmer water and the baitfish it brings with it. The added bonus of fishing in the cooler and colder months is the fact that the sediments in our waters drop out leaving it crystal clear. What could be better than getting a front row seat to a forty plus pound redfish inhaling your fly?

Boats – Technical poling skiffs (mostly East Cape)
1-2 people

November thru December Pictures

These months are some of the best months to target big bull redfish in both Plaquemines Parish and St Bernard parish. The water has cooled enough to clear up both fisheries and the big redfish have already made their way to the shallow marsh flats.

Mike’s last day of Louisiana redfishing

My buddy Mike from the shop is packing up and moving to Denver.  After fishing Louisiana marsh for years and never having a good opportunity on a trophy fish we decided to make it happen.  After adjusting our presentation from smacking the fish to actually leading the fish we started getting true refusals on the purple fly.  We made the switch to brown and it was on.  We caught some little guys and had 4 takes by big fish before we finally got a hook in.  Good fish to hook into though.  This beast went about 30.5.

Dec 30 -Jan 2

I fished these four days with two young men visiting from Japan. Since my clients spoke very little English, we had to rely on the basics of fishing to communicate.  During this four day trip, my only interactions with these young men consisted of “cast here”,” reel fast”, “reel slow”, “jig” and “set the hook.”  With this direction we landed 8 fish over 20 lbs, 2 of which were over 30 lbs.

 

September through October Gallery

This is the transitional time when big redfish start to move from offshore waters onto the beaches then into the interior marsh for fall. You can not only find big redfish but also cruising sharks, Jacks, tripletail, and even Tarpon at times.
