Where to fish in Louisiana?

Shawn Lanier - 02/26/2014

26 February 2014, Report.

I had the pleasure to take my brother, Tad Lanier, and his son, Christopher Lanier, out fishing for a couple of days this week. Christopher is in the U.S. Navy and just graduated from diving school over in Panama City Beach Florida, so he was ready to get away from it all for a few days. He fishes over in Florida and has fun doing it, but says, “The Redfish fishing in Louisiana is much better”. With the big warm up down here in Venice this week, the fog set in every morning. It held us up in the morning, but we were not in a big hurry anyway. Fog never did disappear off the river all day, so we chose to play it safe and fish across the street from the house. We ended up doing pretty good. We decided to downsize our lures for Speckled Trout and hope some Redfish would hit it ass well. I figured with the warmer weather the Specks might decide to bite, and they did. These Trout were 14-16 inches. We also caught some Slot Redfish for the grill. We also stumbled across some big “BULL” Redfish with the largest going 28 pounds. The weather generally dictates where you can fish, and this time the thick fog forced us to stay out of the river and it worked out. Fog will be an issue until around May. I will be busy between now and May with bookings. I still have some openings between now and then, but only if our schedules can line up. June and July are usually outstanding months for the big Redfish here in Louisiana, especially here at the mouth of the Mississippi River around Venice. Come down and get in on the action. Later.
