Man when you look at it February is just about gone and spring is rolling in like a lion. Can't say that I'm gonna miss it, this winter was just too cold. I hope that all of you survived the ice.
It looks like our fish survived the unusually cold weather as we have only seen a couple of casualties. As the weather begins to warm, we are seeing days with some respectable catches of the good ole Louisiana Redfish. The trout have not come out of hibernation just yet but some of the areas just to the north are beginning to see them which means that they will show up any day. The reds started off sluggish but now that it is beginning to warm they are showing up in schools when you find them. If you hit one, stay in the area there are more hanging out.
The Louisiana Gulf waters had about the slowest winter we have ever had, not fish wise but pressure wise. The weather was just too unpredictable to try to promise trips. Any of you that have ever fished with us know that we just do not believe in asking you to drive down just to watch the wind blow. But a slow winter means a lot fewer fish were caught so they are still swimming around, getting fat and waiting on you to show up. Snapper season is set to begin June 1 and those days are booking fast. Remember though that this is Louisiana Fishing and while the Red Snapper is a very large draw, we have many other things to fish for.
We will be giving the offshore boat a good shakedown cruise next week and there is a new 24 foot Blazer Bay headed our way for the inshore fleet. We really look forward to seeing all of our old friends real soon. Call now to book your day. 225-937-6288
