As many of you know I’m not big on miss leading people into booking with me. I’m all about being as truthful as possible in order to manage expectations. With that being said… This October was by far the worst October I have ever experienced. It wasn’t a shock considering the water temp pretty much […]
I can’t complain about this summer’s Jack season. Although I had to deal with constant west winds and the floods in Baton Rouge pumping dirty water into my main Jack fishing area we had a very successful Jack season.
Although we have had constant west winds, which is our least favorite wind direction in Louisiana, the Jack fishing has been very solid. We have had some good pushing fish on the flats and lots of schooling action in open water. We boated a total of 35 jacks on fly in 12 days of fishing. […]
During the summer months we try to get an early start to beat the heat, fortunately summer is one of the best times to hunt pushing fish. Both Redfish and giant Jack Crevalle become very active at this time. Their mornings are spent cruising flats in search of bait. Although we start earlier with low […]
September is when we start getting very busy. Although the big fish have not moved into the shallows we are still able to target them in open water with the weather permitting(reasonable winds and sunlight)… This will continue usually through mid October when a good cold front pushes the bigger fish shallow. Although we have […]
Starting in June schools of mullet start moving into Lake Ponchartrain. Following these schools is one of my favorite and most overlooked gamefish, Jack Crevalle aka Marsh tuna aka Jackie boy… With the right conditions the lake clears showing its vast sand flats littered with small grass patches. The jacks cruise up and down the […]
Although we were still dealing with some water clarity issues, we were able to make it to the cleaner outside areas on most days. There we found large singles, schools of spawners (15-20lbers), and even the occasional Jack. On the windy days we stayed inside chasing tailers in the shallows and even got this nice […]
I’ve been fishing way too much to post recent pics but here are some pics from early to mid October. Also I had my sisters wedding which also hindered my posting.
I had an afternoon free and had the perfect wind to fish Jacks in Lake Pontchartrain. We got out there around 2:00 pm and immediately started seeing blowups down the shore line. We found one massive school and got one good 28 lber and broke another off. We saw them a few more times and thought we were in […]
