Summer Fishing Red Fish

by | Jun 7, 2017

Summer fishing red fish is action packed in New Orleans. We’re fishing in less than 3 feet of water in the back waters and marshes. We’re mostly fishing with shrimp under a popping cork , trolling the banks and hitting the islands . We have caught a few fish on artificial but the best bite has been on shrimp. The fish we are catching right now are 16″-23″ range with a few coming in above 27″.

We’ve been able to stay dry despite the weather mans predictions of rain. Here in South Louisiana the weather pattern is usually clouds building in the morning and rain in the afternoon. There is always the exception to the day where there’s  rain all day .

May was an amazing month of fishing with lots of memories for all my customers who came out fishing a Nawlins good time. I want to thank every one who came out fishing with New Orleans Style Fishing Charters. We look forward to having y’all back someday.


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.
