Late reports from the Beach
<p>Late reports from the Beach. Monday I had the pleasure of fishing with Jeff, David, and Jason. The wind was blowing as it has been, but we pounded it out and headed out to the Sound. The first rig we stopped by was covered in boats, so we move over to the next one. Capt. Jonathon waved us over and we anchored up not far from him. Once we got the Campo's live shrimp in the water, it was on. The guys were pulling in Trout one after the other. I joined in with plastics and the Trout ate that up too. When we got to #99 on ice the bite died and we could not buy another bite. We left there and headed back closer in to look for Reds. At our first stop we found nothing but Trout, so we kept the one and released a few others before moving on. We made several moves and picked up a few Reds and Drum to add to the box. Total was 100 Trout, 4 Reds, 2 Drum, and a few Heads.
Tuesday I had Tom, Joe, and Colin. The guys were passing through New Orleans on their motorcycles from Phoenix, AZ on the way home to Nova Scotia and wanted to see what our fishing was like. We started out in Eloi making a few stops and not finding any fish. The west wind was blowing pretty good, but we pounded it on out to the Sound and got on a good bite of some nice sized Trout till the sharks took over and shut it down. By now the winds were picking up so we headed closer in and worked our way to the interior marsh. We caught fish at every stop and the guys caught just about everything that swims, Trout, Reds, Drum, Heads, Spanish, Blue Fish, Sharks, you name it. The guys were not keeping any fish, but I kept some for my dad. They had a great time and took off on their next adventure on the road.
The fishing in Shell Beach as good as it gets right now and the Trout are eating up the live shrimp. It is going to be a great spring/summer season, don't miss out. Campo's is open with fuel, live bait, ice, and two back down ramps. Nice and easy launching with helpful advice from the Campo's is waiting for you. For your next fishing adventure call United Charters. Very nice overnight accommodations are available. 504-439-1680.
