What anglers said about fishing in Bayou Lafourche

Expect lots of little saltwater catfish to steal your bait. We moved a bit then got our max of redfish within an hour - all 8-15 lbs with frozen shrimp bait.

May/June and Sept/Oct are better times to fish, but we did ok for such a cold and windy day

You never know what is on your hook. We caught just about everything in the water. Redfish, Black drum, sheepshead, freshwater catfish, NOT ONE HARDHEAD! A Stingray It was a wonderful experience Thanks Captain Chad. Cannot recommend higher.

We come from the upper Midwest so we had no idea how to approach the Chauvin area in terms of fishing. Using a charter made all the difference.

Boat was top notch. Captain Josh was a fish whisperer. Knew exactly where they were and how to get them on a hook.

Fish midweek if possible. We went on a Tuesday, and Ryan had access to all of his honey holes.

The time of year may have been a factor. We didn't catch many fish at all.

Definitely use a guide service. Captain Dave read the water and weather conditions and kept me in the fish.

Expect to mainly catch redfish. The other species are possible to catch, but not as likely.

We left the dock around 6am stopped at hot spot #1 loaded the boat with specks, then went out to play with some bull reds. Fighting the monsters with light tackle is a blast. We caught 4 and had one pop the line at the boat. Couldn't have been a better trip for us. We wanted a trout to take home and have the drag squeal a few times and that's what we got.

Fishing in Grand Isle is not a slam dunk if you do not know the area. Get a good guide.

Use a guide/charter service. The guide I used (Capt Joel with Bayou Country Charters) has a very nice boat that can get around the local waters with ease, and he knows the best locations to find and catch fish. Start the charter early in the day (we started at 6 AM) to avoid as much of the afternoon heat as possible.

Bring a good attitude and have fun! The Captains do their best and of course want you to catch fish but they can't force the fish to bite. So be a good sport. Catching does make your day more exciting though. Also, wish I would have applied more sunscreen. Ha
