Snapper - Dorado Fishing Trips in Louisiana

May 31st, 2012 No comments

We are getting ready for the opening day of snapper season. The snapper are everywhere overpopulating the Gulf of Mexico. It should be quick and easy to catch your limit of giant red snapper. The Dorado fishing has been incredible for the last 2 weeks. It seems like no matter where we are, the fishing has been productive. We are still catching several yellow fin tuna well over 100 pounds, which is a little uncommon for this time of year.

We did really well on both day charters and night charter fishing trips. This is one of the best fishing years I've seen for a long time for the yellow fin tuna. The rip has been forming up every couple of days. It is just a matter of time before it gets right again. When it was formed up right, we caught some nice wahoo and dolphin off of it. I also caught a nice 350 pound blue on Wednesday live bait fishing. We stopped on the way in 2 or 3 times to try to catch a grouper, but there were too many snapper there to get the baits down. We have been doing really well with the mangrove snappers, adding variety to the boat each charter fishing trip.

Yellow Fin Tuna - Snapper - Dorado Fishing Report

July 31st, 2011 No comments

Sitting around the fishing lodge waiting for the wind and rain to stop. Just wanted to post a few pics from last week. The Red Snapper fishing was incredible this year, we averaged a 15lb per fish limit on red snapper. We have been doing really good on the yellowfin tuna catching 14 on our last trip along with several blackfintuna and dorado fish.

The current has been really strong pushing the grass lines together making a good rip to fish. We will be fishing most of next week, we still have some openings in August.

Come enjoy a Offshore Fishing trip of a lifetime, learning experience for anglers of all ages in Louisiana's Gulf Of Mexico.
