Re: Suggestions for Grand Isle bank fishing

Surf fishing is always a good option in Grand Isle during the warmer months. The fish have been on and off the beaches in the general area all of 2019. With that being said, I fished GI yesterday, the beaches were dirty, but not too rough. There were quite a few wade fishermen and boaters out there. I didn’t see anyone catching and the boats were all moving from rock to rock fairly quickly, which is not a positive indicator. However, who knows what will be happening in 4 or 5 days(certainly not the weatherman!) I would fish the first couple of westernmost rocks as they are closest to the shoreline. Try shrimp under a cork or croakers Carolina rigged(or both). When you find them, it’s fast and furious, when you don’t it’s still fun. Just look for bait popping or if you get lucky, birds diving(except Terns). If you’re staying somewhere with a lighted dock on the backside(or know someone who has one) that can be fun and fruitful as well at night. Good luck!
