March 12, 2010 – Windy Weather Reds

by | Mar 12, 2010

The weather has not been cooperating for us I have had a couple of trips canceled due to the weather but that’s the way it goes.

The bull reds have shown up .Its a little ride to get to where they are but its a blast to fight a 20# bull red in deep water. I fished Mr.Jim ,Mrs, Molly and their two girls Kate and Abby today. We where gonna head out after the big reds but with the wind blowing 20+mph we opted to stay close in and avoid the rough waters. We ended up with 7 nice reds and a couple of throw backs . With the wind blowing so hard out of the north and the water muddy we had to fish on bottom with market shrimp. It payed off and everyone had a good time.

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.
