Fishing in the Lake and Grand Isle

Site Sponsor
I've been fishing in the Lake Borgne area for the past few weeks, and the fishing has been good. The Saturday before last I had my two sons on the boat and we were able to put about 30 trout and a few reds in the box. We had three trout over 3lbs and one over 4lds. My yougest caught the the biggest.
This past Saturday I had my oldest and youngest sons on the boat, and we managed to boat about 30 more trout. It was a little slower bite, but the action was still fun. Two great days on the water with the boys.(Logan, Victor, and Eryc)
All fish caught came on live shrimp and pogies, using a carolina rig. The fishing in both lakes are on fire.

The Grand Isle area is moving into the fall pattern. Redfish are showing up in the marshes north of the island in great numbers and trout have started to stack up in the bays around the rigs and behind the islands. Weather plays a very large part in what type of fish you can fish for, becasue the winds may blow you out of the open bays and into the marsh. On calm days the trout are there and in good numbers. So make a trip and have some fun on Borgne/Pontchatrain or Grand Isle.
