July Fishing is Hot Catching Red Fish

by | Apr 8, 2024

July fishing is hot right now catching red fish. With the summer heat progressing and the water temps rising. The red fish are coming out of the shallows and into the deeper bays . With this they tend to school up and compete for food so they are very aggressive .

We’ve been catching our fish with gold spoons or shrimp under a cork while trolling the banks looking fro the schools of hungry reds . A few trips have been productive with shrimp on the bottom on some structure.

Every day of fishing is different with the weather, tides and customer skill level. As seasoned guides we adjust to all scenarios to make the best of the day foe all .

I would like to thank everyone who has come out fishing with us in the last couple months . Its been tough times with everything going on in the world but with all your support we will survive .

I will be running trips as long as they allow me to , as of now the government has deemed my business as an essential business and we can conduct business as normal . I pray that everyone can stay safe and healthy through these times and I look forward to fishing with everyone soon.


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

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.
