GREAT WEATHER AND FISHING CONTINUES
We are still at it down here in Lafitte, enjoying some great days on the water for late November. The great year of redfishing is still going strong for us and the speckled trout are starting to bunch up as the weather gets more seasonal. The fishing should remain excellent for the rest of the year and we have lots of openings for December so give us a call and treat yourself to a charter with Lafitte’s hardest working and most professional fishing team. We offer gift certificates that make an awesome Christmas gift for that special fisherperson, just a phone call is all it takes!
The reds are staying shallow and are in the marsh for the most part. Fresh shrimp under popping corks is definitely working but Capt Lane’s Mad Mullets in black and chartreuse tightlined on 1/4 oz jigheads is working as well. The shrimp are exiting the area as they normally do this time of year and the reds are turning to baitfish for their replacement so the Mad Mullets are fooling the hard fighters.
The specks are gathering in the lakes east and west of Lafitte where clean water and bait is present. Grassy areas are good as the water is filtered clear and the bait has a place to hide. Fewer shrimp is also a good thing for the trout who get less picky with less food swimming around. Capt Lane’s Ghost Minnows under popping corks are doing the trick on the silver wonders.
I am including pictures from some recent trips so please enjoy!
