Fishing is ALWAYS hit or miss anytime/anywhere. I fished Lake Calcasieu (also called Big Lake by locals). The speckled trout & redfish have different schedules on best times of year to fish so if targeting a certain type do your research for this lake to choose wisely!

Full moon fishing 36 hours out from a major cold front and these guys put us on the fish for hours straight.

Bring lots of water and sunscreen. Fish are always biting so you'll want to be on the water for quite some time.

Bring plenty of water and go with an accomplished Captain like Captain Bradley with Cat 5 Fishing Charters LLC. He walks you through everything you will need and this was our first time as well.

Be sure to apply lots of sunscreen, wear a large brimmed hat, and long sleeve fishing shirt to protect from the sun. If you have issues tolerating extreme heat, bring shammies.

Yes I would recommend fishing the Lake Charles area. There are abundant game fish and miles of fishing grounds to explore.
