"Lots of wind and no fishing," reported Chris at Professional Sport Shop in New Orleans. For the past week, anglers have been hemmed in by the weather. Luckily, chris expects the action to fire up when the wind lies down. First, he looks for trout to show up along the bridges and trestles. He says that anglers will troll RatLtraps with lead-core line along the pilings. Chris suggests replacing the back treble hook on the plug with a 2 foot piece of leader and a soft plastic jig. "Use a flats boat and bump troll along the pilings," Chris says. He expects fishing in the creeks and canals to pick up as bait moves into the area. Right now, the best bite is on Tsunami swim shad or Fin-S soft plastics. Perch fishing has also picked up along HWY 51 in Manshack and Riddick. He said that anglers casting Bettlespins, crickets, or worms are loading up on tasty pan fish. Offshore fishing has also been slowed by the weather. Crews are catching wahoo, blackfin, and yellowfin when the wind subsides. Once the conditions improve, Chris expects the fishing to take off. "Right now, we either get rain and high water or wind that blows the water out," he said.
