Our Goals and How We Catch Bull Redfish, slot Redfish and Speckled Trout.

Captain Shawn's goal as a fishing guide is for all his clients to have a chance at a fishing trip of a lifetime that they will remember as a positive experience. How do we achieve this goal? Well, the most obvious answer is to "catch fish", or better yet to catch "a limit of speckled trout or red fish". Don't worry, Captain Shawn will find fish to catch. However, there is more to it than catching fish.

This is what he says:

My # 1 goal is to get my clients to the fishing area and back to the dock safely. There are many hazards around the mouth of the Mississippi River like: fog, ships, ships waves, logs, electrical storms, high seas...The last thing we need is a collision with a log or any other problem. Fortunately, I have not had any serious injuries on my boat. I can find safe areas to fish when the weather and the water are not cooperating.
I've had folks that have gone fishing with me that have commented that they had caught some nice speckled trout or redfish with other fishing guides, but the fishing guide was a jerk, so they are trying me out (most fishing guides are nice people by the way). I think that the most important thing for a client and fishing guide should do before a fishing trip is to communicate. What is it that you expect from the fishing guide? Does the client have any special needs or handicaps that need to be addressed? Please let me know if you have any special needs or particular expectations.


100_0576_640Targeting Specific Fish ( Bull Redfish, slot Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, Tripletail Etc.)

If a client wants to target a specific species of fish then I will direct my efforts toward catching that fish. Most of the time my clients want to target the big "bull' Redfish. I will try to get you what you want however, the more fishing experience my clients have, the more fish they will catch and the more fishing spots we can explore. The creel limit for Redfish in Louisiana is 5 per person and the slot is 16 to 27 ". The oversized Bull Redfish are catch and release. 

The creel limit for Speckled Trout is 25 per person and they must be over 12".
