Fishing For Red Fish In May.

by | Apr 9, 2024

Fishing for red fish in May is always a great time on the water. By the time May rolls around the weather has stabilized and the bait is in the marshes . Coupled together the red fish are plentiful and eager to bite just about anything placed in front of them .

I haven’t had a chance to post a blog lately but I always have pics on Facebook and Instagram of our daily catch. My website is set up to where you can view these pics even without an account to either platform.  Check em out and enjoy !!

As for the fishing lately , its been good. Mostly fishing for red fish with soft plastics , spoons ,spinner baits and shrimp under a popping cork. All methods have been producing fish , so regardless of your skill level we can have you catching your share of fish in no time .

Aside from the red fish we have also been catching a few black drum and some speckle trout . 2019 has been a mirror image of last year with multiple boat fishing each day and customers returning with boxes of fish and memories that will last a lifetime .

Thanks to everyone who came out to fish with us . I could never express the amount of appreciation I have for each of yall.

Summer vacation is approaching and we look forward to fishing with everyone who has a trip booked with us. If you’re going to be in the New Orleans area and would like to spend the day on the water catching your share of what the Louisiana bayou has to offer ……….


I’m booking trips daily so feel free to give me a call with any questions or to schedule your charter today.
