winter comes, you have all the canals off the bays and then
there's the deep-sea fishing that goes on all year. Think about
the numbers of species of fish you can catch here, and how many
fish are caught here, and other people around the United States
don't believe that kind of fishing exists in their country.
The normal trip leaves the dock at safe light
(7:00a.m.) from Bridgeside Marina and returns around (2:00p.m.).

One of the most targeted fish we have here in
Sportsman's Paradise is known as the Speckle Trout. No one will
argue that the speckled trout is one of the premiere game fish
in South Louisiana! Not only is it great table fare but it is a
terrific top water fighter! When hooked, the speckled trout will
give you quite a show as it dances & thrashes wildly on the
Speckled trout are known by many different names such as
spotted sea trout, specks, yellow-mouths, and paper-mouths.
"Specks" are found throughout the entire gulf coast & are easily
identified. They are silver in color with olive-green tints on
the back and numerous small black dots which extend over the
dorsal fin and into the tail. The lower jaw is larger than the
upper jaw which has two prominent canine teeth.
In general, specks have an elongated body with a large mouth.
The diet of speckled trout consists of shrimp, & small fish
such as pogies and croakers which we commonly use for live bait.
. There are a variety of ways we fish such as artificial lures
like top water, plastic grubs, & flies also. The average size is
14-18" & weigh 1-3 lbs with an accasional 9-10lb.
Specks like shallow coastal areas near sandy & mud bottoms. The
months best for this fish are end of April till August. It is
not uncommon for our guests to limit out on fish day after day.
That's 25 speckled trout per person. Then again for the winter
from Nov. to Feb. An we also catch a few numbers of Flounder and
redfish while on these trip. These fish are excellent stuffed
with crab meat and baked in the oven or on the grill. South
Louisiana has abundant bays and lakes that fit this description.
Our fishery is among one of the best throughout the entire gulf
Gran Isle Louisiana (Red fishing)
The Redfish is known as
one of the hardest fighting fish along the gulf coast. The
Redfish is very distinctive in it's red and bronze color with a
black spot on the tail. Some even come with more black spots on
them that give them a little more of a trophy look to the
angler. We catch lots of bull reds during the winter time. They
get the name bull red from there fearce attack of the bait and
long hard fight. These fish just don't give up and will fight
all the way to the fish box. Light Tackle is the way to go for
the ultimate fishing adventure.
These guys will give you a glimpse of their bronze back just
before making another run away from the boat. Redfish thrive and
are therefore plentiful here in the marsh and costal waters of
South Louisiana where they can be fished year round. Depending
on the season, they can be found anywhere from the shallow
marsh ponds to the deep oil field canals. Redfish are known to
be one of the easiest salt water fish to catch here in the
marsh. You'll catch big Reds using artificial baits which
resemble minnows to live shrimp. When fishing with a buddy,
doubles are not uncommon. Louisiana fishing regulations allow a
limit of 5 fish. All must be above 16" with only one over 27".
Pretty impressive numbers as far as size goes. . We also catch
redfish going up to 40 pounds on light tackle.
Grand Isle Louisiana Flounder Fishing
considered “ambush predators.” Instead of actively pursuing their
prey, they lie and wait in areas that are likely to concentrate or
disorient small fish or shrimp. From their position on the bottom,
flounders pounce on these animals as they move by.
their feeding habits, large numbers of flounders will
concentrate in good ambush areas. Especially productive are
current-swept points and channels that serve as choke points for
flounders take live bait, jigs, or even spoons that are fished
near the bottom. Because their mouth opens side-to-side, rather
than vertically, small hooks will produce more hook-ups than
Grand Isle Louisiana Black Drum Fishing
The black drum is black and silver in color. They have
black lines along their body which run up and down. They both
live in the same waters and eat the same food small crabs,
minnows, shrimp, grass snails. The Red fish is a excellent meal
fixed which we call on the half shell and put on the grill. We
catch these fish year round and give a angler the fight of there
