    Another great day at Shell Beach. Today I helped Capt. Mark with a two boat trip. My three guys hopped on the boat and off we went. Our first stop was in a pond near Four Horse and it was nonstop action. There were some trout out to the middle and cast anywhere near the shore and it was and it was an instant red. It was fast and fun, but most of them were just under sized. There were enough good sized reds around to keep us sticking around. We left there to another area to look for some trout, but instead we ran into more reds filling out our limits and the guys caught a bunch more that were lucky enough to avoid the grill. Ended up with 40 trout, 20 reds, and 10 sheepshead. Fun day with a fun group.

    I have some openings next week.

    All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campo’s live shrimp on Capt. Rory's United Charters custom rods provided by CUI Products with Penn reels, spooled with Power Pro line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Just Grab it Glove.

    The trout are moving into the marsh and that great fall fishing is here. This is some of the best inshore fishing of the year. Get your fall trips booked early before all the weekend and holiday dates fill up. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    Finally some cool weather Trout at Shell Beach. Friday I had the Renshaw group of 3 from Atlanta. The cool boat ride sure was nice for a change, but it warmed up quickly making for a pretty day. Our first stop was where we found some birds diving where the tide was falling out a pass connecting two lagoons near Lake Robin. We had to weed through some throwbacks, but the keepers were really nice. The guys put near 60 on ice before the bite slowed down. They really wanted to catch some reds so off we went to a pond I like and it was on. Limited out on reds and must have caught and released 50+ more. Add in a bass, a drum, 4 sheepshead, and dozen more trout and the box was stuffed to the top. Great day of fishing with a fun group of guys.


    I have this Tuesday and Wednesday open.

    Late report from last Saturday at Shell Beach. I had the pleasure of taking Bert and Molly into the marsh to look for some reds. It was breezy and overcast with the tide rising fast. We made one stop and it was nonstop action. The reds were silly and we limited out in short order. They had a great time catching a bunch more reds before we headed in just in time to beat the rain.

    Friday fun at Shell Beach. I picked up John, his wife Nicole and their son Q from their camp. It was Q’s birthday fishing trip and he was ready to hit the water. It was just a little to breezy to run out to the Sound so we stayed closer in. Fishing with Campo’s live shrimp 3’ under a cork they managed to put some good trout on ice with plenty throwbacks to weed through before the wind picked up and killed the bite. Q wanted to catch a redfish so we made move and beat the bank of a bayou. They had fun catching some nice reds for the grill that evening.

    Default Monster Speckled Trout Port Sulphur

    Tuesday morning I stopped by Myrtle Grove marina to get live cocahoes but they had none so, I wound up getting live shrimp. While I was waiting for them to serve me, since they weren’t quite opened yet, I decide to try casting my cast net at the launch ramp to see if I could catch some minnows. Every cast produced finger mullets and some shrimp. I left the marina to head to Port Sulphur loaded down with plenty live bait. The weather was calm and the tide was on the rise. I went straight to one of the camps out in Bay Ronquille where the water was very clean. I rigged Carolina style with live finger mullet. Huge trout were obliging as the water on the surface teamed with porgies flipping out the water and trout in hot pursuit. I managed to get some nice trout in the boat, trout size in length of a 48 qt Igloo. The bite lasted about 2 hours but the tide came to a halt and so did the bite. Catfish started to bite instead, a sure sign of dead tide. Thereafter I tried plenty of different spots and nothing was biting but catfish. I threw all sorts of lures, tight line and with corks. No trout. I was satisfied with the minimal catch of very unusually large trout.

    Default Port Sulphur- Quality not Quantity Trout Trip

    The morning started out discouraging as I pulled up solo to the Myrtle Grove marine to purchase live shrimp only to be told they didn’t have any. This is the spot where I only buy the live shrimp on my way to Port Sulphur to launch. This time of year live bait is mandatory if you want to catch trout in any numbers. So the marina lady said we have live minnows, as I discouragingly walked to my truck starting to leave. So that was better than no live bait, so I bought 30 minnows. It was really looking bad at my first spot out in Bay Ronquille. Under a cork about 2 feet down the live minnows didn’t even draw a bump. I was fishing 5 ft of water. I was very nervous because the only other bait I had was dead shrimp and lures. The glow beetle under a cork tipped with shrimp yielded one trout and thereafter catfish. I moved out deeper into the bay where the camps are, and to make a long story short, the trout would not hit the minnows unless they were fished Carolina rigged on the bottom. The trout were large when they did take the bait, telling me the heat of summer drives the trout to the bottom of the water, a cooler area. I caught a nice mess of large trout before I had enough of the heat. On the way in a stopped over an oyster reef and caught more large trout, bigger than the school trout that are mostly caught this time of year. In this spot, the minnow had to be close to the bottom under a cork, moving across the oyster reef. I rigged the cork above the Carolina rig so I could adjust the depth of the bait right off the bottom of the reef. If it wasn’t, no bite took place. I’ll be buying live minnows next trip out since they catch bigger trout and stay alive longer then the live shrimp.

    Wind from the West fish bite the best. Not really, any kind of west wind is not favorable for our area, but if it is not too bad you can deal with it. Deal with it is what the Chad Mason group did today. After a slightly bumpy ride to the fishing grounds we stop at our first rig and caught a few nice trout, but they would never turn on. We moved over to another rig and once we figured out where they were the corks were going down and pretty trout were flying in the boat. We got up to 65 trout and my crew said they had plenty so we heading in early and beat the heat.


    The fishing has been really good and I have some openings next week and the following week. Get those kids out on the water before school starts back. Give me a call, text, or email to get in on the fun.

    West wind trout at Shell Beach. Saturday I had the Reliable Disposal crew on the boat. We were greeted to a stiff NW wind that made for a rather sporty ride to our destination. Things started off a little slow, but after bouncing around a few wellheads we got on a couple good bites with Campo’s live shrimp 3’ under a cork. We got lucky with the wind too, as it laid down as we fished making for a nice dry ride back in. The guys had a lot of fun and put together a nice box of fish with 60 trout, 12 reds, and 6 heads.

    Port Sulphur Mixed Bag

    Two of us left out of Port Sulphur and headed out to Bay Ronquille to fish a spot we call the rock pile. Fishing with live shrimp and corks and various lures we were catching a mix bag of white trout, specks, and large Gafftopsail. Fishing was slow at times and the few boats around us weren’t catching anything. This is the time of year when the sun heats up the water, the fish shut down around 10 am. We had a box of fish and threw back a good number of under sized trout. We had a good trip since the weather was calm with a light breeze and overcast skies.

    Crab Heaven Again

    3 of us left out of the Kenner boat launch and headed to the locale parish line canal, where I had the day before dropped 6 crab traps in anticipation of picking them up the next morning before we set the crab nets out. Plenty crabs in the area, but many small ones, mostly males. The traps were baited with fish carcasses and the 20 nets with turkey necks. We filled the red plastic bushel basket to the top and back at the launch before 10 am.
