Seasonal Fishing: A Year-Round Guide to the Best Catches

Visualize yourself standing on the deck of a boat, surrounded by pristine waters, anticipation building as you cast your line into the depths below. As fishing guides in New Orleans, we understand the thrill and joy that comes with reeling in the perfect catch. In this blog, we'll take you on a journey through the seasons, exploring the best fishing opportunities Louisiana has to offer. From springtime inshore excursions to winter offshore adventures, we've got you covered.


As the winter chill subsides and nature awakens, spring brings a burst of life to Louisiana's inshore waters. From March to May, anglers can expect a bountiful array of species, such as redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. Grab your gear, head to the estuaries and marshes, and get ready for some exciting action.


When summer arrives, it's time to venture offshore and explore the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Prepare for adrenaline-pumping battles with powerful game fish like tuna, marlin, and mahi-mahi. The warm waters create the perfect environment for these trophy-sized catches. Don't forget to bring your sunscreen and a sense of adventure!


As the summer heat dissipates and the colors of autumn paint the landscape, fall offers a unique fishing experience in Louisiana. During this transition season, you'll find a mix of inshore and offshore opportunities. Target species like redfish, speckled trout, and flounder as they migrate from the marshes back into the coastal waters. It's a time of abundance and change, making every cast an exciting possibility.


While some anglers hibernate during the winter months, true fishing enthusiasts know that the colder season brings its own set of rewards. Venture offshore and test your skills against fish like snapper, grouper, and amberjack. The waters may be cooler, but the thrill of reeling in these heavyweight champions is well worth it.
