Catching the New Year red fish with New Orleans Style Fishing Charters. We have started the New Year with some cold temperatures and low tides . This has the red fish out of the marshes and piled up in the deeper water. We’ve had to do some fishing around to find the reds . Once we  find them, they’re usually piled up and hungry. This is a typical winter time pattern (that is when we have a winter down south) . Fishing with shrimp under a popping cork or tight line with shrimp on a jig head has been the ticket to getting them to bite. 

I haven’t fished speckle trout lately since the conditions have’t been favorable for them . Once the water warms up a lil and the wind stabilizes the silver wonders should be eager to bite . I look forward to filling up the coolers with our share of those tasty fish!

2017 was a great year for us!! With lots of happy customers going home with memories of their New Orleans experience on the bayou. It was great to see so many familiar faces of returning customer. It was really nice to catch up with everyone . This year was also filled with many new customers like every year I look forward to meeting new friends . Everyone is a stranger at first ,but by the days end I like to think we’re all friends . 

I want to thank everyone for choosing New Orleans Style Fishing Charters to fish with while in New Orleans this past year!  Your continued business is greatly appreciated . I’d also like to thank the captains who help me make memories for all who fish with us.  2018 is here and I look forward to making great memories and more friends….
