Good As It Gets Right Now

Site Sponsor
This fishing is as good as it gets right now in Shell Beach, Louisiana. It’s just a magical time of year when the weather finally starts to cool off and the harvest season begins. The marsh is full of shrimp and the fish have taken notice. They are schooling up and feeding actively right now. I don’t think you could pick a better time to come fishing. Book your New Orleans fishing trips as soon as possible. Days are filling up fast.

We have been taking several large groups lately. I run my business so that I can take groups of any size. I work with several other charter captains on large groups and we make sure our clients have the best chance for success. All of the captains I work with have a lifetime of experience on the water and most have fished this area their entire lives. When you combine that many years of experience, you get to see the great Louisiana fishing trips that we have been having.

We were fishing trout on the outside for a while but they seem to have migrated further in. I am focusing on major waterways in the interior marsh. Places where multiple bayous come together or passes in between bays. I fish exclusively with Campo’s live shrimp. My clients spend good money to fish with me so I want to use the most effective bait there is. No hungry fish will turn down a live shrimp. You can get by with plastics Im sure, but live bait is the simplest way for a boat of clients to get on the fish.

We will be fishing everyday this fall. If you want to get on a Shell Beach speckled trout fishing trip, please contact me. We will also be offering Louisiana duck hunts starting in November.

If you would like to book a hunt or schedule a fishing trip you can contact me, Capt. Jimmy Corley by phone at (504) 258-4431 or by email at Also you can check out our website at Don’t forget we have lodging available if needed.
