Each year I take the family to Grand Isle for a few days of fishing but this year weâre taking the skiff at the end of August does anyone know if the Kingfish are ever caught on the rigs close to shore?
We can catch all the specks and reds we can eat living on the North Shore but we really want to try and catch a king.
We broke two off in Panama City Beach last week and are itching to land one!
Not asking for secrets, just are they out there on those close rigs?
Went out with the wifey last Sunday and picked up one 24' red in stump lagoon, there was a school of reds in there feeding on the mullet but was only able to hook into the one good one and a few rat reds, that action was was over quick with the tide. Pulled the anchor and worked the East bank of the Rigolets and only picked up a few small trout not worth keeping. This area is still very muddy thanks to the Pearl River being over flood stage. We were using popping corks with gulp shrimp for the reds and matrix shad in black chartreuse for the trout. Hope to go out again this weekend.
My Pops coming into town from Alabama and the last couple times I have been to Lake Pontchartrain we have gotten skunked !
We launch out of Madisonville and normally fish the bridges but lately the water has been so dirty we have had no luck.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Any reports on the spec's moving through the Rigolets yet?
We have been down two weekends now and have only picked up a few flounders fishing around the pass that is when the wind was not ripping through there..
