Speckled Friday in Shell Beach. Onboard the Blazer Bay were Pat, Brian, David, and Nathan. Pat and Brian have fished with me for years now, but this was going to be Nathan’s first ever fishing trip. There was a rain shower over the area I wanted to go to, so we stopped short to try a couple spots with not much action. Finally, the rain moved on and we moved to the rig I wanted to start at. When we got there the birds were diving all over the place. The trout were eating up and the guys had a blast. The cooler was filling fast, till the falling tide stopped and so did the bite. With plenty trout the guys wanted to try for some reds. We made one stop and picked up 8 keepers and released a lot of under sized ones. Fun day on the water and young Nathan is hooked and looking forward to his next trip.

The fishing in Shell Beach is on fire. The trout action gets better and better every day when the winds are decent, and the reds have been hungry in the marsh when it blows. We have plenty of open dates, so get out of the house and get on the water. No better place to be. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campo’s live shrimp under a 4-Horsemen cork on Kast King rods with Penn reels, spooled with Kast King line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Jus Grab it Glove.

Monday in Shell Beach I had Al Fandrich and family out for a day on the water. With the extremely low water and a good breeze blowing we set up on the edge of the Sound in as protected an area we could find. The bite would start and stop, and never got really turned on, but sticking with it they put together a nice box of fish. They had a great time and are looking forward to the next.

I have openings this weekend and next week.

The summer pattern is shaping up and the action will be getting hotter and hotter. Get out of the house and get on the water. No better place to be than in the sun and on the water in these crazy times. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

Last Friday at Shell beach I had Brian Renshaw, his son Tate, and Chris Talazac on the Blazer Bay. It was Tate’s 10th birthday and a fishing trip is what he wanted. As is typical when Brian books it was forecast to by windy, but at the first stop it was not bad. They managed to put some trout on ice, but before long the gale force Brian winds were on and shut the bite down. From there we ducked into the marsh to find some reds and the guys managed to put together a nice mixed box and had a lot of fun celebrating Tate’s birthday.

Trout Tuesday in Shell Beach. Gary, Richard, and Paul jumped on the Blazer Bay and we took off in search of some speckled trout. Armed with Campo’s live shrimp we hit the Sound in nice conditions. We got on a good bite at our first stop, but it was short lived. From there we bounced around a few spots waiting on the tide to flip. The guys ground it out and ended up putting 75 trout and a red on ice.

Spring is here and the trout bite is getting better every day. There is still excellent action on big bull reds and sheepshead if you just want to tangle with some really big fish, along with plenty of fish in the marsh on windy days.

A message from LDWF

Quote
Recently, LDWF has had to respond to several fake news articles, one regarding increased fishing fines and, most recently, the supposed forced closure of hunting and fishing season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
None of it is true.

Any valid information regarding LDWF actions is on our website at www.wlf.la.gov or our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ldwffb/.  Please verify the accuracy of any information at these sites before sharing it on social media.

“It is incredibly unfortunate that some individuals would go out of their way to spread false information with the intent of creating confusion for the wonderful people of Louisiana,” said LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. “At a time when we are pulling together to deal with a deadly health crisis, there are some who find such actions amusing.”

LDWF supports the recent comments by Gov. John Bel Edwards encouraging people “to go outside and to stay active during this time, as long as they practice social distancing when they are around their neighbors.”
It is essential to remember that people should not gather in groups of more than 10, that you practice social distancing – stay at least six feet apart - and that you strictly follow the state and local orders related to the pandemic.

We hope your families are well during these challenging days and have the opportunity to spend time outdoors together – whether relaxing in your backyard, biking in your neighborhood, hiking a nature trail, taking advantage of our upcoming turkey season, or going fishing near your home.
As always, you’ll need a valid fishing or hunting license and must follow all fish and game regulations for the state of Louisiana.

Trout Thursday in Shell Beach. Matt Lester and family were my guests for the day and a good day it was. They were in town from San Antonio and wanted to enjoy a day of Louisiana fishing. They were not looking to keep any fish to take home, so a lot of fish got really lucky, except for a dozen trout I kept for me and the wife. They had nonstop action from the start and all day long. The trout were really biting as were a bunch of sheepshead and several nice slot reds. We made a couple moves to try and find some big reds for the kids and did not find any at a normally good spot. There was a guy not far from us that was hooked up constantly. He hollered for us to come over near him and tossed us a few of the big gold spoons he was using. Sure as heck both the boys hooked up with some big redfish. The last two in the photo was a double hook up that ended a perfect day on the water. A special thank you to the Gold Spoon Man, you made those kids day.

Spring is here and it’s time for the Sheepshead and Bull Red run out in Breton Sound. If you want fast action, big fish, and plenty of them, now is the time. There are plenty trout around too if that is what you are looking for. Now is also time to get your spring and summer trout trips booked now as choice dates are going fast. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

Wednesday meat haul in Shell Beach. The Paul Denis group hopped on the Blazer Bay and off into the thick fog we went. We made our way out deep into Breton Sound to a small wellhead and the reds and heads were there and hungry. They released several big bulls reds and kept a few along with a box full of sheepshead. We made a stop on the way back to look for some smaller keeper reds and ended up putting 12 trout and few more heads on ice. Fun day with nonstop action.

One good day and one tough day in Shell Beach. Forrest Fife and Dan Saterfield came down from Monroe for two days of meat hauling Tuesday and Wednesday. They really wanted to get out into the Sound for a Sheepshead round up and battle with some bull reds. Tuesday conditions were perfect with very little wind and plenty for tide moving a day when none was forecast. They loaded the box with heads in short order and a few reds to boot, releasing some other bulls. Wednesday was a different story. A front came through the night before and we left the dock in 30+ knot winds. Even with all the wind the water was hardly moving, and the fish were sluggish. The guys managed to put together a decent box of reds in some horrible conditions. Two fun days with two super guys.

General Discussion / Need some help fishing.
« Last post by SaltySpoon on Jan 21, 2020, 9:13 AM »
Hello,

I'm going to be in New Orleans and Baton Rouge later this week. I am curious as if there is anything I should know before I head out fishing there. I'm only going to be able to fish on Saturday, and I'm thinking around Shell Beach. I'll be bank fishing. Looking to catch anything that bites. Whiting, Croaker, Trout, Reds, Rays, whatever.

Thanks in advance.

From LDWF

BATON ROUGE, La.--Crappie regulations on Eagle Lake, a shared waterbody between Madison Parish, LA, and Warren County, MS, have become permanent.  The regulations include a daily creel limit of 30 fish per day and a minimum total length limit of 11 inches.  A Notice of Intent to make the experimental regulations permanent was adopted on August 1, 2019 at the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission meeting.
 
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) recommended the regulations to create identical regulations with other similar lakes in MS, and potentially improve the crappie population in Eagle Lake, which has historically suffered from poor natural crappie recruitment.  These regulations have been in effect on Eagle Lake since October 1, 2015, on an experimental basis.
 
Results of evaluations conducted by MDWFP over the 4-year experimental period were submitted to fisheries staff of Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for review, and upon evaluation of the impacts to the fishery and acceptance by anglers, LDWF biological staff agreed that the regulations should be made permanently concurrent with MS.  Shared regulations on border waters result in less uncertainty for anglers, and will provide for easier enforcement by both state agencies.
 
For more information, contact Ryan Daniel, District 2 Fisheries Biologist Manager, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries at 318-343-4044 or rdaniel@wlf.la.gov .
