Summer Fun Fishing In New Orleans

by | May 2, 2024

Summer is already here and the Fishing in New Orleans has been action packed . We’re catching red fish daily throughout the back water marshes ,lakes , bays and bayous. Shrimp under a popping cork has worked well for us . We’re also throwing gold spoons and soft plastics with plenty of success as well .

The size of the reds have varied from each location, anything from 16″-30″. I’ve started to see more speckle trout coming to the dock in recent trips. The trout have been from 12″-18″ with an occasional 21″.

I’d like to thank everyone who has come out to fish a “Nawlins” good time with us in the recent weeks . I look forward to having y’all back out fishing with us again someday . If you’re planning your summer vacation here in New Orleans and are looking for things to do while in town .  Give me a call and……


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.
