Pennsylvania and Oklahoma fishermen catching reds

by | Apr 22, 2024

Yesterday we had the pleasure of fishing two separate crews from Pennsylvania and Oklahoma. The weather was warm but pleasant with a light breeze. Capt Roy and myself ventured out in two separate directions in search of some new waters to fish. At first both spots were yielding the same in numbers ,then a tide fluctuation slowed the bite in my area .

Capt Roy was still seeing action so my crew and I packed up and made our way into that area . Within minutes we were back on the bite. Both crews ended the day with their limit of red fish with a few thrown back to fight another day.

Slow trolling the shorelines and islands with shrimp under a popping cork was most effective but we did catch a few on soft plastics . Every one had a great time on the water. Thanks y’all for coming out to fish with us . It was our pleasure and look forward to doing it again sometime.

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.
