Where can I find sharks?

Reply
Anyone know where me and a buddy can get on some sharks. Working with a 21ft boat so not looking to go too far out. Anywhere from grand Isle to Biloxi marsh is where we are looking. Any info would be great.

You don't need a boat. Try these locations; the Morris Bart Law Firm, Chip Forstall Law Firm, Womac Law Firm, Dudley DeBosier Law Firm, or the Loyola School of Law.

Dat's pretty funny-seriously,there are plenty,not this time of year,though,all along the pristine shorelines of NShore from Cane Bayou mouth,east to nice shorelines outside Bayou Lacombe.Water is gin-clear and once we start getting heat-up,mullets galore out there and once ya got mullets doing de synchronized mullet dance,everything from jacks to reds to trophy specks and sharks go on eating frenzy!!!

That's some good Intel I appreciate it. I noticed that starting April 1st it's illegal to keep a shark so was hoping I'd find some around here in the cooler weather. A couple buddies of mine have them swarming their rigs offshore but he is on one of those 30+ miles out rigs. Single motor and 21ft boat...not chancing it lol.

Also want to point out that 300+ people have read this post and 2 people responded. I know see why No one but charters talk on here. Everyone is here looking for Intel but never giving any. Anyone know of any better message boards or pages to talk fishing spots and reports? But also requires you to be an active member ? I'd share my red and trout spots with anyone who is willing to share other valuable info

If you are looking for another Forum, I have been liking the North shore Fishing Forum. I normally browse the lake Pontchartrain/ Lake Borgne section since my boat is in slidell, but it seems like an active site and they dont allow charters to post. These two sites together has been good to me so far but i am new to the area so ive just started learning the ropes.

Can you post or PM me the address to that forum?

Not gonna knock other site but my personal preference is right here used to regularly post on NorthShoreFishingReports but got peeved at few morons that publicly posted GPS coordinates of somewhat secluded and highly-productive fishing and hunting spots and used to write monthly Cane Bayou fishing report but no more. I obviously do not give exact spots but give general locations and feel pretty confident that fishermen make spots vs the other way around. 👍

I hope i didnt step on any toes but i like both sources. As someone new to the area im looking for all the info i can get, and it only helps me that the other source is more specific to my location. Also with all the charter guides using this for advertising, it can be hard to get useful info if thats what you are looking for, though the reports are interesting none the less. Hope this helps! And good luck out there!

I agree with both of you. I'm new to this area and last year I wasted hundreds of dollars in my boat chasing specks I don't know how they migrate or what causes them to come in go out, got to bottom, ect. So it's nice to hear some input or some teachings. Don't find much of that on here. If you caught 50 trout in hopedale that's great. I don't need GPS coordinates. Just say Christmas lake is producing. I know how to fish an what to look for in that area. I'm used to fishing up north in Tennessee. Fish don't migrate there. So I didn't have to learn patterns like we do here.

Well I am one of the 300 + looked at your post wondering why in the hell you want a shark . You think someone going to tell you trout biting in a certain bay , dream on ....As for sharks lake P. is full of bullsharks I hope you catch them all . You ask about Grand Isle just throw out a bloody hard head or sailcat and chum as much as you can with them I'm sure the sharks will acommodate ....and trout and red fisherman will thank you .

I love shark. I don't know about anyone else here but we eat the hell out of It.

CptFrank,Ya aint in no way stepping on any toes,I just happen to prefer this particular site,though plenty of guides post on here.Lake P has an extremely healthy and thriving population of bull sharks and I quit wade-fishing many,many years ago after a buddy showed me picture of friend of his with nice stringer of specks and reds and the bottom red was only a fat head,compliments of hungry and aggressive bull shark.I prefer fishing the shallows from the very comfortable confines of very nice Chapman pirogue,makes much less noise vs wading and infinitely safer.The water from Cane Bayou to and around Goose Point is about as pristine as I have ever seen and all it is gonna take is a slight warming trend and when the mullets start showing up,gonna be lights out on may species.I fish a lot mid-week when there is lot less pressure and even on week ends,plenty of water to share with others!!

Salty Cajun is a good spot for info and not just a guide love fest.

Math Geek,Thanks for de tip on Salty Cajun-always looking for spots to not only post but also possibly get decent and timely intel-de way I feel-give a little,get a little but I do not post exact GPS co-ordinates for obvious reasons and would not expect someone to divuldge exact GPS co-ordinates.Kinda the way I feel,fishermen typically make the spot vs the other way around and sometimes,even taking someone to exactly where ya caught fish does not work if they do not have the proper technique down pat,seen it many,many times,especially at Causeway!!
