Cold Front Fishing at the Beach by Rory Rorison (11/11/2017)
[Shell Beach,LA] Cold front fishing at the Beach Thursday. I had Don, Robert, and Stan on the boat and we started off a little lat waiting for the rain ahead of the cold front to push through. Definitely chillier and breezier than earlier in the week, but at least it felt actually like fall.
Saturday Fun at the Beach by Rory Rorison (11/07/2017)
[Shell Beach,LA] They stayed the night at the First Cast lodge and we got an early start to try and beat some of the crowd. We headed down near Bakers Bay and got on a couple slow but steady bites. I figured it was better to stick out the slow and steady instead of looking for faster action elsewhere with so many boats out on the water.
Fantastic Friday at the Beach by Rory Rorison (11/04/2017)
[Shell Beach,LA] Fantastic Friday at the Beach for the Jim Walther group. After picking the guys up at Jim’s camp we made our way towards Delacroix. We started out fishing where a pass off Oak River goes into a shallow lake. Jim throws out and first bam a solid 3 pound trout was in the boat. The next two trout were just the same. It looked like it might be a monster trout slam, but that was it for there.
Monday meat haul at the Beach by Rory Rorison (10/31/2017)
[Shell Beach,LA] Monday meat haul at the Beach for Carl and Jan Tarvin. The morning started off a little chilly, but warmed up nicely and so did the fish. We fished an area close to the house that I have not fished for a awhile and it turned out to be a good move.

Our first stop produced a lot of action.

[Shell Beach,LA] Great fall fishing at the Beach. It has been a while since I posted any reports, but that does not mean I have not been fishing or the fish have not been biting.

[Shell Beach,LA] Busy at the Beach. I am way behind on fishing reports, but there are some photos of recent catches.

We have been catching lots of fish all over the area, both closer in and deep out in the Sound.

From the first cast the guys were catching Trout one after the other.

We stuck with it till the bite really slowed down. We then made a move to a rig in Eloi.
Good day at the Beach today by Rory Rorison (5/06/2015)
[Shell Beach,LA] Good day at the Beach today. I picked up Jim Walther and two of his friends up at Jim’s camp. The wind was blowing pretty good out the SE and the water was very high as we left the dock. I was a little worried went we got to our first spot since the water did not look all that good. Fishing with Campo’s live shrimp 3’ under a cork the bite started off kind of slow.

The second stop we hit the jackpot.

[Shell Beach,LA] Fun Saturday at the Beach. My crew for the day was Mark, Irvin, Joe, and Lenard. The weather was kind of iffy, and there were some showers heading our way so we stayed close in the marsh. Joe had the first bite, but the line broke and we watched the cork swim around the pond. After boating another Red we managed to snag the cork as it passed by and got that nice Red on ice too.
