Hey folks I have two questions. First when does the crab fishing at Rockefella start each year. I have only fished there during the summer and want to know when would be earliest that anyone else starts fishing them....and ...My second question is does anyone have any information about fishing off the beach west of holly beach for reds or specks. I have fished the eastern part of the state all my life but want to start trying that stretch of beach for specks and reds. Any information would be appreciated.....

Ok Guys!! Who has used the Vodoo Shrimp bait for specks? Any suggestions as to colors to use and did you have any luck with them????? I keep hearing about them but have never used them are they just hype?

Looking for a little information. In general when do the specks start showing up along the beaches at Grand Isle. I have a trip planned for the whole last week in May. Is that a good time? Any information would be appreciated. I usually go down at the end of July and they are already there going down a little earlier this year and was just wondering...thanks

Went down to Grand Isle last Friday through Monday of this week. Fished everyday without much luck. We used minnows and fished on the bottom with a Carolina rig. The water is dirty and was really rough. Hard fishing conditions. Been going down there for 40 years worst trip I ever had.. Sorry guys but it is the truth. Now I fished only the surf, maybe, the boats in the bay did well but I really don't know.
Saw one guy with his lady, who did catch some really nice large trout Friday afternoon on Elmers Island. Matter of fact, the only fish we caught were on Elmers Island. We only caught catfish on GI. We still enjoyed our stay and caught our supper both Friday and Saturday, but Sunday was 'forced' to eat Rib Eyes.....Good luck and Good fishing....

Next week going down to Grand Isle for a few days to do some fishing. Has anyone fished down there in the past week or so who can give me a heads up on what is going on on the beach?? Would really appreciate any feedback guys!

Hey guys I need some help here. I have a beautiful stand site setup with a new box stand and want to plant a food plot of about 2 acres in front of the stand. However, the site is an old oil field location. Last season I tried to plant some greens and they sprouted and came up but stayed only 3 to 4 inches high. Now the soil test I ran shows that I have a high salt content, obviously left over from the drilling operations. So here is my question does anyone have any experience in planting food plots in this type of situation. I need to see what will grow in soil with a high salt content but no one can tell me. So I am throwing this out here in front of the best deer hunters in the state to see what you all have to say about this.....HELP!

Just left GI yesterday. I fished Elmer's island, grand island beach, the bridge fishing pier, and in the bay with a boat. Fishing is bad right now. Caught only 8 keepers in 4 days. Water on Elmer's not clean because of hard south wind and rough serf. Sorry for such bad report.
I own a Yukon XL and drove it all the way to the pass without too much trouble, just be careful to avoid the loose sand up high on the beach. Another tip turn off the stabilitrak feature or else the truck will not perform very well but once it is turned off goes very well.

I could use about 25 a day like that.....I am looking forward to trying them...you know half of what makes a bait work is believing that they will work...from what I have learned here...looks like I might have some luck...

thanks for the hints on using those new baits. I have fished grand isle since the early 60's back in the shad rig days. since then primarily used live bait but that is getting way too expensive for and old retired guy like me. I will take all the advice I have received here and put it to good use. I will be taking an extended vacation down to the island the last week of May until in June and will post any picts that I have of the trip....hopefully there will be plenty fish to take pictures of.....thanks again guys!!

A comment titled: Grand isle in response to a report titled: Any Grand Isle or Elmers Island fishing reports?

I spoke with my nephew who got back from GI last Fri and the report was not encouraging. I am gonna try minnows and little croakers on the bottom mostly and start there...probably fish EI and State Park to start off. Don't have boat so will primarily be surf fishing...Maybe the bridge early and late.

els you have any plans or you just gonna see what's up when you get down there? Kinda what I am looking at...
