April 6, 2010 – Windy Weather Reds

by | Apr 6, 2010

Today I had the pleasure of fishing with Mr. Jon Sprier and his two nephews Joe and Allen. The wind was blowing 10-15 mph at daylight and got to 20mph by 9am. There was no running out to catch the bull reds that we have been fishing with that kinda wind. Not a bad day of fishing – a tough one, but not bad. We ended up in the bays and marshes just south of Lafitte. Caught plenty of reds just under slot limit and put 11 keepers in the box with a drum fish. We fished with market shrimp under a cork or on bottom depending on where we set up at. A great time was had by all. It was the first time Joe and Allen had ever fished red fish. Thanks guys for the fun time today.

I’m Captain Jason Shilling, owner and fishing guide of New Orleans Style Fishing Charters. I fish the bayous of Lafitte, Louisiana for red fish and speckle trout. 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.
