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.

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. [nggallery id=3]

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. [nggallery id=1]

8/20 Big Nasty Summertime Redfish

I had Ted & Kim of www.fishermensspot.com today on board,  going for the GIANTS! rolled out at 4:00am to catch a perfect condition for some trophy class redfish. Our early arrival  to THE SPOT really paid off, the bigguns where already there waiting for a crab fly breakfast and I had the anglers on board to serve […]

8/19 Duck Pond Redfish

Had Jeff & Tony  from Colorado today chasing redfish back in the duck ponds, little or no tide made it a tough day on the water. Fish would eat the shrimp pattern flies the best today but were  kind of picky! Really wanted perfect fly placement. Great casters on the skiff makes a bad day […]

8/4 Scout Trip

Rocky and I took advantage of the calm winds and made a scout trip way south.  Here we found plenty of redfish, some bull reds, and clean water.  Although we didn’t catch the bigger reds in the school we did manage some 10-12lbers and one going about 16lbs. (good one for summer time)  All the […]

7/31 Pretty Good, Bad Day

Back at the homewaters the fish were not acting like they were in Venice.  With clear skies and relatively light winds you would think it would be an easy day. Well the fish were not moving like they have been. The water has warmed a little since last week and the clarity was very poor. […]

This time of year is hot! Not just temperature hot but fishing hot. The interior marsh redfish settle into their summer patterns and you can find them tailing, backing and pushing almost everywhere. [nggallery id=2]
