Good fishing promoted by warm winter

by | Jan 21, 2017

 Good fishing is promoted by the warm winter here in New Orleans . The unseasonably warm weather has the fish active and cooperative . Mostly fishing for speckle trout right now but we are catching a few red fish as well. The specks are 12″-19″ in length and coming to the boat by way of artificial baits under a cork or tight line. We’ve been fishing the bays and lakes for these speckled beauties. With the water temps in the 60’s the fishing should stay pretty consistent .


So far this winter the fishing has been good and should stay that way as long as we don’t get any major cold fronts. February is shaping up to be a good month in the books . Mardi Gras is early this year and the weather has everyone looking to get some good fishing in while in town. I’m running multiple boats so I have plenty of opening for all. 

I want to thank everyone who came out and fished with New Orleans Style Fishing Charters in 2016. It was because of y’all we were able to have a successful year of fishing. I made lots of new friends as well as got to catch up with some returning friends . I look for 2017 to be a great year as well and look forward to seeing every one out on the water having a great time fishing .


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