[Shell Beach,LA] Busy at the Beach. I am way behind on fishing reports, but there are some photos of recent catches. The Trout fishing has been great the last couple of months with full limits most days, even in some not so good conditions. 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.

[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.
Wednesday’s running of the Bulls at the Beach by Rory Rorison (4/10/2015)

We really were just killing time till the winds died a little as forecast so we could get out to the Sound. Once we made it to the rigs the guys put some meat in the box. Not as many Reds that day as it has been, but the monster Sheepshead were in full force.

Armed with Campo's specially trained live shrimp we headed out to the edge of the Sound and made our first and last stop. I dropped my new Minn Kota iPilot trolling motor down, moved a short way and down went the corks.

Overtime on the Beach Tuesday by Rory Rorison (5/21/2014)
[Shell Beach,LA] Overtime on the Beach Tuesday. Yesterday I ran the Ray King group for Capt. Frank Moore, Fishing With the King. Ray, Bill, Frank, and Blake hopped in the Blazer Bay and we made a stop by Campo's for their famous live shrimp before heading out. We were greeted with a stout SE wind that limited our options and had dirtied the water up pretty bad. We made several stops and fished hard with little to show for. By 1:00 we only had 12 Trout and a couple Flounder no ice.

[Shell Beach,LA] Ty Hibbs and Casey Brunning brought down their kayaks and loaded them up in the Blazer Bay and we headed out to try and put some fish in the boats before the weather set in. We wanted to push further out into the Sound, but with the weather fast approaching we stayed in the MRGO. The guys set off in the yaks armed with top water baits and Matrix Shads. They had some good top water action early, then the Matrix Shads and Vortex Shads did the rest of the damage.
