Today I had the pleasure of fishing with Mr. Roger and his wife Mrs. Candis who were down from Connecticut taking in their two hobbies fishing and bird watching. The morning was nice, but the forecast was for 15-20mph winds from the south east, so I decided to stay close in and fish.

Fishing with a glow bettle under a cork we caught 25 trout in the 15″-20″ range then we went look for some reds in the marsh . The tide was high and coming up with muddy water in the marsh , and no luck on the reds we went back to where we were in the morning to catch some more trout. And that we did. On the way in I took some back canals so they could see some of our wildlife mainly the birds . We had a good time.

Fishing is picking up so book your trip today to get in on the action.


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.
