Sightfishing with Spin/Baitcasting gear
- 7 hr7 hours
- 700 US dollars$700
- South Louisiana
Depending on the time of year, we will fish anywhere from Delacroix to Port Sulpher, Point La Hache and Venice, to the marshes of Houma (Point Aux Chien, Cocodrie, Dularge). We encourage clients of all skill levels to come fish with us. We will have spinning gear on board, but as always, you are more than welcome to bring your own gear with you. Just as the fly fishing that we do, we will be trying to sightfish most of our fish, but if those conditions do not present themselves, we will do some blind casting with a list of things from gold spoons, to soft plastics, to topwater frogs. This is one of the best ways to introduce young children to the world of sightfishing. Our times on the water will also vary depending on the time of year. In the Summer, we like to try and be on the water quite early (6:30-7:30am) due to the immense heat that begins to build throughout the day as well as beat the summer showers that you can almost be sure of some days starting up not long after lunch. In the Winter, of course, it is quite opposite as we are more anxious for the middle part of the day to give us sunlight to warm things up a bit and get those fish active. Through the Fall and Winter we are normally aiming to be on the water for around 8-9am. We do not really go by any set amount of time on the water, but normally get anywhere from 6-8 hours of fishing in each day. That time frame on the water could vary due to things such as rain, tide, extreme cold or heat, etc. Of course our first priority is putting our anglers on as many fish as we can possibly do so while also keeping them in a safe setting. As for things to bring, you will need; polarized sunglasses, non marking shoes, light waterproof jacket (even on a sunny day, you may get some spray on you from a wave), and if you have your own fly rods and flies, you are more than welcome to bring those. If not, we will have everything you will need for the day. As for drinks and lunch, we are always sure to have plenty of water on board everyday and if you are staying at a lodge, you will receive a lunch from them. As always, if there are any other questions you may have, you are more than welcome to call or text me at any time at 504-343-9017. Thanks and we are looking forward to having you!
