Cold Weather, Hot Fishing

Jim came down from Alabama to get his first crack at some big redfish. What a heck of a guy and a pretty darn good fisherman as well. It’s been cold but the fishing has been hot. – Capt. Paul Lappin  

Mid-December Fun Fishing

Had a day off, so what did I do? Went fishing, of course. And man it was cold. Captain Ryan Frederick and I managed to put a few in the boat before heading back to the warmth of the truck. Fun day!! – Capt. Paul Lappin

Tournament Fishing

Had a chance to fish with Gary Ellis and Brower Moffitt for the Redbone Tournament benefiting cystic fibrosis. What a great cause and what a fun day on the water with these two characters. – Capt. Paul Lappin  

Some Schooling Redfish Video

Captain Paul Lappin

Lived and fished all over the states. From Key West to Alaska. Was introduced to this amazing year round fishery here in south Louisiana and have not been able to leave it. From beautifull weather and a variety of species whats not to love. Not to mention the Big Easy being so close. Lets go […]

November Redfish

Great 3 days of fishing with Kevin George. These guys had plenty of shots on big fish and plenty of funny stories to fill me in on. Great times and great guys.  See you in key west fellas!!! – Capt. Paul Lappin          

Early October Fly Fishing Report

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 […]

September fly fishing to Remember

Early this September was probably some of the best fishing I have had in a while.  It was by far the best September fishing I have ever experienced.  This was immediately followed by some of the worse weather which in turn made for some very difficult fishing.  Here are some fish we put in the […]

Summer Fly Fishing for Cobia

Summer is hot!  So instead of poling around in the marsh we decided to take it to the big water in hopes of finding something different… We found it! The first buoy we pulled up to had about a half dozen Cobia floating just underneath the surface.  The water only had about 3-4 ft of […]

The Spring Thing!

Although the big fish are still around they are few and far between.  Because of this I like to turn my attention to some other species this time of year.  When weather permits we are able to run out to the beaches.   This sometimes gives us opportunities at Jacks and big reds.  If it’s […]

Offshore Fishing Venice Louisiana

Although the wind was blowing and the fish weren’t eating right, Capt Kyle Smith still got a pretty good haul.  We started the day as usual trying to catch some live bait.  After a couple throws with the cast net we got them.  Menhaden.  We dropped the live bait only to see nothing happen for […]

The Perfect Day

Although Fall is most popular, people overlook the dead of winter.  Yes, during winter we get horrible fronts that will keep you off the water for days at a time.  Yes, our average winter temperatures are less then desirable for most saltwater fly fishing anglers.  But… If you luck out and hit it right, you […]

Cold Winter Redfishing is Heating Up

This winter season has been pretty good, to say the least…  We have had great shots on singles, doubles and sometimes even groups of 10 or more 20+lb Red Fish.  This makes the double possibility jump way up.  I even got to get in the game and hook up with this 35 lber with one […]

Kevin and Tejal

Although this is a late report, I had to let people know about what kind of luck you can have as long as you keep booking…  Kevin and Tejal started coming down to fish in Louisiana about 3 Years ago and although we had some semi-productive days, we still had to work hard for them. […]

End of Fall

Here are some good ones from November and early December… I have to say congrats to Mike Birge on not only catching a 32 on a popper but more importantly getting on the Sheepy board!!! No easy task… I also have to mention Jeff Stang”s personal best 38 lb red which is also still standing […]

Big Fish Season is in Full Swing

As long as the weather allows us to get out on the water the big fish have been waiting.  We have seen big fish floating, pushing, and even tailing, which is somewhat rare for us.  It has been very windy recently but as long as you get the fly in their face they usually eat […]

The Fishing is Good

The fishing has been good!  The big fish have moved in and even on cloudy days we have been sticking some really good fish.  As long as the weather is somewhat consistent the fish have been very happy… Here are some pics to prove it…

Early Fall Action

It is that time of the year when the shrimp boats are holding massive black fin and yellowfin tuna. We didn’t hook a yellowfin on the fly on this day, but a 20+ lb blackfin was certainly a battle on the 12wt. The redfish have been schooling in certain areas. The schools mostly consist of […]

The Bull Days of Summer

Recently we have been having some great action all over the marsh.  From popper fishing for small reds and sheepsheads in the ponds to outside fishing for bull reds, we’ve been trying to stay busy this summer.  I had Jack and Denny back in town for a couple of days and when they are here […]

Summer Action

We have had a great summer with all kinds of fish being thrown at and caught.  The latest being this 26 lb bull that I caught on a calm, hot, summer afternoon.  Slot Fish are around in droves.  I have seen groups of up to 100 fish just milling around in a pocket.  We have […]

Late Spring/ Early Summer

It has been a pretty good spring and not a bad start to the summer.  The fish have started grouping up and we have had plenty of clean water to work with.  The gator population is certainly not hurting as well. It seems like they have a gator on every turn.  The Sheepsheads have also […]

Bass Poppers??? Redfish Poppers!!!!

Popper season is here!!!!  The water is warming and our fish are starting to look up.  We landed 4 bass and 7 redfish on poppers this past saturday which is a great start to the season.  If you don’t know, then believe me, there is no better sound then that of a redfish sucking in […]

Spring has Sprung

The grasses are here and the water is beautiful.  This time of year the fish are very active cruising banks, tailing and sometimes backing showing almost half their body. It’s a good time for all types of topwater action including Poppers, Topwater plugs, and even frogs.  The variety of fish is also good with the possibility of […]

Late Winter Sheepshead Madness

Sheepshead aka Marsh Permit aka Convicts aka my new obsession.  This past winter, we constantly saw these big heads tailing and cruising all over the place.  Unlike some guides out there, I encouraged my clients to cast at them.  Most of the time they would spook before you could get the fly to them or […]

Top Water to Save the Day

The past few weeks have been anything but pleasant.  Seems like our weather is just punishing us for having such a nice fall.  Well, when you have guys that have traveled hundreds of miles to just have the opportunity to catch one of our big Bulls you have to try and make a day, no […]
