Finding fish in off colored water
Finding the bite in muddy water. With a front and hard North winds then High powered South winds with a full moon, falling tide, the water is really shook-up and muddy. A charters confidence level quickly goes up with clean water and sight casting to visible fish. rnIt’s nice to search and find that quiet cove that has clean water and active fish, but with the current conditions there are very few areas much less with active fish ready to bite. rnWell the next pattern would be current lines coming off the contours of the bays or cuts in the marsh moving water with the currents or winds. Theses current line can collect schools of bait fish and the trout and reds know it’s easy pickins for a quick meal!!rnCapt. Theophile found a decent trout bite and picked up a few redfish at the same time. The trout were caught on the bomber mud minnow silver flake and chartreuse working the current line.rnThe reds were caught using the same bait and a few on the gold spoon.rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Plenty slot redfish in January!!
The Team here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters have been catching redfish this winter. Capt. Kevin took out a group earlier in the week and caught a limit of slot redfish on gold spoons and spinner baits. Capt. Kevin worked the current lines and shallow pocket in the North Barataria Bay area and keep a look out for wakes and fins as with the warmer weather the redfish were in the shallows. Hi team used our regular speed retrieve as the warmer weather had the reds actively feeding. Just remember as it gets cold slow it down, some times just put it on their nose and work is slowly.rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Cold Weather Trout
The Crazy hot and cold weather has made catching fish a little more challenging than normal. Capt. T- Wayne found a large school of trout moving to a deeper area but still migrating on to a grassy flat to feed. The 3rd day after a cold front they were on and an easy limit was put into the box. Again anything chartreuse was the ticket. Capt. T-Wayne found a cork with 24” of leader would allow the jig to be worked slower and produces more keepers. The big Skeeter headed back to the Cajun Vista Inn and the crew was tickled with another awesome fishing trip from Bourgeois Fishing Charters!rnrnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Great Trout bite!
Capt. T- Wayne has been on the Speckled Trout this fall and Friday his charter limited quickly on Chartreuse beetles, Mud Minnows, and Ghost Minnows, under a cork worked slowly. The Key seams to be to find schools of bait and work the outsides as the trout are feeding in a rather lethargic pattern but will compete for anything looking injured. Just work the cork and the action will prompt a bite.rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime! Contact us at: Capt.

Trout are moving North
The Team here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters has been busy catching speckled trout. It looks as though the trout have moved north into their normal winter spots to hunker down but close enough to shallow water and grass to feed on schools of minnows, crabs, and shrimp. Most of the limits have been caught on anything chartreuse under a cork working it slowly on cold days and a little faster on warmer days.rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Reds are ON!
Well it looks like the redfish have traveled north from the spawning areas in the gulf, to feed in the upper estuaries of the North Barataria Basin!! The Team here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters have located several schools of slot reds with every 3rd-4th fish being a huge bull! Capt. T-Wayne and Capt. Kevin had several boxes of reds last week with two of their clients catching their first redfish ever! Most are caught while tight-lining plastics Bomber mud minnow anything chartreuse. The schools are blowing up on schools of pogies and are caught early in the morning by casting towards the schools. Capt. Theophile had a nice box the other day using top water lures, of course the bone colored Ba-Donk-A-Donk!!rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Plenty fish biting!!
The Team here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters have been catching a nice mixed box of trout and redfish. Capt. Kevin and Cricket had a crew last week and caught 25-30 trout at the first secret hole, and a dozen or so on the next. Both Captains found a nice stringer of redfish to fill up the box and turn the big 240 Skeeter to The Cajun Vista Inn! Most of the trout were caught on the bomber mud minnow and the YUM silver mullet. The redfish were caught on gold spoons and Bombers Drum-Beater spinner bait.rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime! Contact us at: Capt.

The Islands are still HOT!!
The Island Adventure has been our most unique adventure for several years, and this year it’s been awesome, and still going strong. Plenty big trout caught on artificial baits, and plenty top-water action. The big redfish are always around the Islands. Capt. Theophile recently took a group to the islands and even though it is later in the year the fish were biting!!rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Fall Redfish Bite is ON!
The Team here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters have been on a intense redfish bit for the past few weeks. Plenty action in the North Barataria bays working shore lines and pods of bait in the current lines. Capt. Darrin, Kevin, and T-Wayne put their group on redfish and had plenty slot reds to go in the box. Most reds were caught on gold spoons and the DrumBeater spinner baits with a black and chartreuse trailer.rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Southern California Tuna Club
The Team here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters hosted a couples tournament form California. The South California Tune Club held their yearly event at The Cajun Vista Inn! Plenty trout and redfish were caught, Capt. Daniel had plenty happy anglers as the gals put plenty fish in the box. Trout were caught tight lining plastics and the redfish were caught on the Bomber Drum-Beater spinner bait. Our West-Coast friends said they will be back as the redfish were such a challenge to catch and they don’t give up!rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!

Trout, Reds, and a FLOOR MAT!
Had a group of four fishermen pop in and got after the trout last week with Capt. T-Wayne. The first spot was on and they filled the box without moving much at all. Chartreuse beetles and ghost minnows did the trick, tight lined and worked slowly. The crew wanted to pick up a few reds, Capt T-Wayne moved to one of his best redfish spots and put a few in the box with a giant “floor Mat”rnFlounder!

Leopard Redfish and three generations of fishermen.rnrnCapt. Theophile had 3 generations on the boat today, Charles Ochello I, II, III! As Capt.

Several slot fish in the box and 8-9 Bulls released and then the youngest angler hooks up a leopard colored red. This was a special fish on a very special fishing trip!!

First Redfish Ever!
The Team here at Bourgeois Fishing Charters just had Brad and Jane form Kansas City in to catch some trout and redfish. Brad had been told by an old friend of his that had passed away a few years ago, that “redfish fight as strong and hard as any fish he had ever caught!! Well Capt. Darrin put them on some trout boxing over 35 on the first stop, and 15 more on the second hole then the reds moved in and Brad hooked a 44 inch bull!! The big red stripped the reel to 3 wraps of line left and though the bull ran from the boat 8 times on the next path Capt. Darrin slipped the net under the bull and pulled him in the boat! Brad remembered what his good friend had said and agreed, this was the hardest fighting fish pound for pound ever.rnrnCome let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the door to your adventure of a lifetime!
