CALM WIND – GREEN WATER – LIVE BAIT- AND BRING ON THE FISH
Most all of last week light morning northeast wind allowed our guys to fish at the short rigs just off shore and the rock groins on the beach east of Holly beach. Solid trout and redfish were caught on live shrimp and finger mullet under a popping cork. Captain Brett Stansel reported catching big bull redfish at the Cameron Jetties fishing on the bottom. Captain David Darnsteadt allowed a good top water bite very early in the morning on Big Jacks reef in the lake. There is great fishing here in September and October and it is heating up now. Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and be here right after the first cool front comes through. The shrimp start heading out of the marsh and there will be groups of diving sea gulls picking at the surface with hungry trout just below. Talk about fun.

ATTENTION: TEAL SEASON OPENS IN TWO WEEKS AND BIG DUCK SEASON WILL BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT Before you know it Duck season will be right on top of us – That’s right big duck season opens in November just a short 4 months away. As many of you know our newly acquired 10 thousand managed acres of Louisiana marsh was the most productive property in all of Southwest Louisiana last year. Our hunters harvested over 8100 ducks during last year’s season and a record harvest of over 500 of the very popular Canvas Backs were brought down mostly for the taxidermist.

ARLY TEAL SEASON IS SEPTEMBER
Our new duck hunting marsh proved to be the very best in Southwest Louisiana last year and it’s looking even better this year. Early teal season should be fantastic so book you trip now. September is one of the best fishing months here on Lake Calcasieu so take time to book our famous BLAST & CAST and have twice the fun. What could be better than blasting away at fast flying teal in the morning and casting away at big lake trout and redfish in the afternoon.
