Grand Isle ON FIRE!!!

Ladies and Gents the fishing in Grand Isle is on FIRE and at Bridgeside Marina they said it's only going to get better.

Bridgeside has boogie croakers and the big trout are unbelievably hungry. With all the shrimp in the water everywhere fish with a cork or bump the bottom with some live bait and you going to catch fish.

We fished Saturday and Sunday and kept 123 fish between 3 people. 79 of those fish were between 18 and 24 inches caught on croakers on the bottom. The bite is on, the shrimp are there, the trout are hot on their heels. If you can find an oyster reef or some structure with some moving water you'll catch fish. I watched trout after trout gobbling up shrimp under the lights on the wooden bridge.

If the bite gets any hotter I'd be coming home with blisters on my hands.

Final tally... 2 days 3 dudes 200 shrimp 200 live croakers = nine one gallon bags of trout filets.

I may have to sleep in my truck or on the beach but i'm definately headed to the Speckled Trout Rodeo this weekend.

My nephew broke a 7 pounder at the boat trying to swing that sucker in the boat. He was trying to keep the porpoise from taking it. Longest trout I've ever seen at up close and personal.

Good times and tight lines to yall.


Thats awesome man. I'm heading down there next weekend for the ABC rodeo. Hope they are still on fire.
