Fishing has been above average this month so far! We had a mild February with big southern winds which gave us a good migration of fish coming in from the gulf. The southern winds pushed a lot of water into our marsh the last two weeks and the fish followed. Water temperatures stayed in the 70 degree range and plenty of trout were brought back to our dock this week. The redfish have been steady all year with easy limits. I had a group in town today from Arkansas and the wind blew 30 mph out of the east, we still filled the box with an easy limit of reds. We have some dates available for March and April but our summer dates are few and far between. Give us a call to get on the books for a fishing trip of a lifetime!

The weather here in south Louisiana is about as crazy as our fishing!! The next two months both February and March can be some of the best fishing if the weather allows us to fish. With the cold water temperature our fish have to bunch together in massive schools to keep warm and find food to survive. This all leads up to massive fish catches in big numbers, When you find them!! They will be in huge schools ready to gorge themselves when you do find the fish.
Most of our fish are being caught on the nicer weather days. Sunny skies and water temperature in the mid to upper 50's we have been catching nice boxes of speckled trout. Anything less than that and zero trout. The redfish are being caught steady day in and day out as long as the water temps don't drop below 50 degrees. Like I said these next few months are very weather and temperature oriented so if you catch the right day it can be a great one!
