    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 werenít 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 didnít 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 didnít 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 wasnít, no bite took place. Iíll 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.

    Summer fishing is heating up. Now is the time to get your summer fishing dates in the books while there are still some left. Don't miss out on the fun, call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    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 Campoís live shrimp 3í 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 werenít 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.

    Windy Port Sulphur Trout Trip

    I left tout of Port Sulphur launch solo. The weather was good but a bit windier than predicted. I couldnít get out the open bay due to the windy conditions so I had to fish Lake Washington where the trout are smaller. I caught a mix bag of small white trout and speckled trout and got tired of throwing back undersized specs. I use live shrimp but when I ran out they hit the Berkley white glow swim mullet under a cork. I came in early, about 10 am, and headed back home.

    Itís been a good June so far at Shell Beach. The summer weather is here and so are the trout. We have mostly been fishing deep in Breton Sound targeting larger trout with good success, but having to hunt around from rig to rig catching several trout till the bull reds or sharks take over. This makes for a lot of exciting action and ice chest stuffed to the top with fish. As good as it has been, it will only get better and better as we head into and through July. Speaking of July, I have some open dates available so call, text, or email me to get your trip in the books.

    Default Crab Haven

    Crab Haven

    Sunday 3 of us went crabbing at parish line canal with 20 crab nets baited with turkey necks. We left the Williams Blvd launch around 6:15 am and by 9:45 am back at the launch with over a hamper of crabs caught for that day’s boil. Crabs are pretty much plentiful right now.
