Got back this past Sunday after staying on Grand Isle Thursday through Sunday. We only caught 1 crab in the surf using turkey necks and a crab trap. I left out my crab trap overnight and someone cleaned it out and cut 2 holes in it. Called Camardelles Seafood to buy some crabs and the lady said they put out 80 crab traps and only caught 5 dozen crabs, this was Saturday. Not only that, the wind was blowing 18-20 mph so the surf was rough all weekend. We caught one 17' redfish out of all the days fishing. We used live shrimp, artificial swim baits, sparkle beetles, Mirrodine 52MR Suspended Twitch Bait and no luck. From what I am seeing looks like if the conditions are right, you should be able to catch some specks at Elmer's Island. Crabs probably wont be in the surf until late June & July. Hope this helps.
