It’s been a rainy, foggy warm weather week out Sportsman Paradise in Chauvin. The Redfish bite continues however and shrimp under a cork has been the ticket since the water turned warmer this week. Good water movement is the key so look for it around the points and cuts along the bayous. Check out our New Years Special online and book a custom fishing trip for your crew today.

Redfish action for XMAS

(985) 856-1648
You don’t have to be a psychic to see what’s going on in the marshes of Louisiana this winter.  It’s a Redfish Bonanza on the Bayou for XMAS ya’ll, and it’s been a great time for everyone fishing out of Sportsman’s Paradise.  Man it’s been fun and i mean really fun.  The weather is cool and i don’t mind it one bit after the July we had, whew it was hotter than a 2 dollar pistol.  Those days are over and as the water cools down the Redfish get hungry man, really hungry. We’ve been finding Reds stacked up in deep holes and they’ll eat just about anything right now.  We’re catching plenty on 1/4 ounces weighted  jigs decked out with a plastic motor oil baby bull cocahoe minnow.  The baby bull cocahoe’s are made a little shorter which improves the hook up rate with the fished stacked up in cool water 50-60 degrees is normal now.  Work that baby bull a bit slower than granny walks around the kitchen and you’ll feel them bump it.  Go easy with the hook set until you feel the weight of the fish bend the pole a bit. Also of course you could use market shrimp under a cork or free lined if you don’t mind getting your hands a lil shrimpy while having some fun. Let us take you fishing this XMAS and enjoy some family time on a Redfish Charter.  Check us out online to book a trip for your crew. Capt Damien Melancon The Redfish Charter Company      

Redfish Popping Cork

(985) 856-1648
Inshore fishing for Redfish is great right now and the key to success is the Ole Popping Cork. I’ve been using this method since knee high to a grasshopper and it still fools them every time. There are many different corks out there to choose from and when i was young we made them out of dead willow trees found along the banks of the Intracoastal. Just put that into perspective before we make it too complicated. Homemade tackle on some string with a cane pole, dig up some worms along the bank and catch all the Bream you wanted. Whether it caused just a splash or had a built in rattle the fish loved finding them corks with a bait of some kind underneath. So let’s fast forward 43 years and catch some Redfish under popping corks during the fall in the marsh(which is finally here thank god!) and understand nothing has really changed. No matter the type of fish the key to using the popping cork is in the name ‘Popping’! Enjoy this beautiful fall fishing weather folks and take it from me the key to success for plenty of Redfish with either live, dead or artificial is to Pop That Cork.

The fishing action is awesome right now out of Sportsmans Paradise in Chauvin La.   We have been busy with everyone squeezing that last bit of summer vacation out of the August heat.  The Redfish have complied with great numbers of fish being caught under popping corks with market shrimp.  The sight fishing has been phenomenal with Redfish seen tailing on every trip out of the Chauvin Cocodrie area.  The new custom Carolina skiff has plenty of room and a T top to provide shade when the sun gets hot.   I m posting pics from our Redfish charters last week and I apologize if i missed anyones trip in this post.  Check us out online to book your custom fishing adventure today. www.redfishcharterco.com Capt Damien Melancon The Redfish Charter Company

Redfish Charter inshore action

(985) 856-1648
Wooo it’s getting good folks.  As the summer sun heats up the water the Redfish action gets fantastic.  Look for Reds crashing bait along shorelines and get plenty of shrimp to fish under a popping cork.  POP THAT CORK!  We pop our rattle corks hard and often to attract Redfish and Black drum this month.   I recommend to my clients to allow the fish to take the bait for a second before giving a firm hook set for better results. Sight fishing the grass lines has been excellent this past week before 9am with calm winds.   Top water plugs, gold spoons and spinner baits will work great if you can hit the target around tailing redfish.   Sight fishing has been yielding much larger reds this week and the action will pick up as winds die down this month in July.

The Redfish and Speckled Trout action continues out of Sportsman Paradise in Chauvin.  The fishing will only get better as the summer starts to settle in and water temps rise causing a fishing frenzy.  I have been using top water plugs early morning then switching to popping corks baited with shrimp after 9 am when the bite moves deeper.  The fishing is great right now down the bayou.  Check out our summer special online to book a custom fishing charter for your crew with The Redfish Charter Company.

Cocodrie Redfish

(985) 856-1648
Wow what a Memorial Day weekend it was fishing in Cocodrie as we remembered our fallen veterans and marked the start of Summer vacations for many families along the gulf coast of America.  I fished with 3 great groups this weekend and we had an awesome time fishing out of Sportsman’s Paradise Marina and Lodge in Chauvin, LA.   Listen folks if the weather forecast is for scattered showers don’t cancel, come fishing and you’ll see how we move around the interior marshes to avoid the thunderstorms all the while putting you on the fish.  We will keep it safe and not waste your valuable vacation time. This weekend once again we found the redfish in ever increasing numbers along the grass beds in Cocodrie inhaling any shrimp placed in front of them.  The action has been increasing daily as you can see by the Redfish Charter Co photos and great times had by all of our clients.  Book a trip online and check out our Summer Vacation Special happening now.

Great fun on the Bayou Redfish

Weather has been great for fishing out of Sportsman’s Paradise Marina so far this month and the Redfish bite has been great as well. Top water plugs, spinners and shrimp under a cork is the ticket for Redfish found along grass lines and grass beds right now. The action is outstanding and clients from 7 year olds to 70 year olds have been reeling in Redfish up to 15 pounds in the interior marshes as you can see in the pictures from this weekend. Get in on the action and check out our summer special online. The Redfish Charter Company
