3-13-2012 New Orleans Red Fish are BITING

by | Mar 13, 2012

This weekend wasn’t the ideal conditions but we stuck it out and caught fish. With high winds and some rain I stayed in the back water marsh and avoided the open water . Friday we ran 2 boats with 8 guys from Pontotoc Ms and ended up with red fish and bass with lots of good times, Saturday I had 3 guys from NE Tennessee we fished a while with artificial and caught a few reds early but with the winds kicking up and the water getting muddy we put some shrimp under a cork and ended up with a mixed bag of fish with 13 reds ,a bass, a trout, a flounder, a catfish ,and a sheephead . The guys were ammazed of all the different fish we have to catch in this area. Sunday I had the pleasure of fishing with Mr &Mrs Grimes from Austin Texas with rain in the forcast for most of the day they opted to go ahead and fish. With a light shower now and then armed with rainsuits and fishing poles we caught 13 reds and lots of action. I enjoyed the time on the water thjis weekend dispite the weather it was a good time. Thanks Guys for the Awesome weekend of fishing .I have a few days off but back at it friday. If your looking to “COME FISH A NAWLINS GOOD TIME ” Give me a call and lets go catch some fish. This is New Orleans Fishing at its finest.

Located just 40 mins south of New Orleans, Lafitte is home to some of the finest inshore fishing the New Orleans area has to offer. I’ve been fishing these waters my whole life and know how to show y’all the true meaning of southern hospitality, good times, and lots of action.
