New Orleans Fishing Report 7/5/13- Fishing Red Fish and Loving it here in New Orleans

by | Jul 5, 2013

As the sun rises and sets the tides come up and fall out . We have been fishing every day. Catching red fish here in Lafitte, Louisiana just 20 miles south of New Orleans. The red fish are coming in all sizes from 13″- 30 ” Yesterday with the Pham family trip we had 4 reds that went over the 27″ mark. That’s a fun fish to fight on light tackle . We were able to catch a couple of those big boys today before the pressing weather chased us into the dock. I wanna thank everyone who has been out with New Orleans Style Fishing Charters in the last week . Its been a fun and exciting week of fishing . If you’d like to get in on some of the summer red fish action down in south Louisiana “COME FISH A NAWLINS GOOD TIME ” with New Orleans Style Fishing Charters and  Capt. Jason Shilling

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.
