Fishing for swordfish in Louisiana? You bet

by Craig Lamb

The Mississippi River delta and surrounding offshore waters are without a doubt some of the richest fishing waters in the world.

Venice, Louisiana, is the hub for reaching the richest saltwater game fish waters in the U.S. Yellowfin tuna. Snapper. Grouper. Wahoo. Dolphin. Marlin. And lately, there are swordfish.

If you want to experience the latest hot trend in Louisiana saltwater fishing, then book a guide trip with Home Run Charters in Venice.

“Swordfish have gotten really popular, and recently we’ve hooked up with lots of big fish,” said Captain John Pisa, who heads up the Gulf’s most experienced and knowledgeable saltwater guides and captains.

Find out more about Capt. Pisa and the most experienced and knowledgeable guides here.

Swordfish is a migratory, pelagic species that most often are caught at night. Capt. Pisa has refined the tactics for catching them during the daytime, as well. Swordfish are predators and use their bill to swipe and disable prey before eating.

Hook up to one of these freight trains of the deep and hang on. The fight can go from a few minutes to hours. Top speeds for a swordfish is about 50-mph. Average weights are between 80 and 120 pounds. Some swordfish reach more than 500 pounds.

Home Run Charters clients are catching swordfish from 1,300 t0 1,700 feet deep. How they do that is rigging up a heavyweight bait rig and sending it to the bottom. That job is easier and more fun fighting big swordfish by using Hooker Electric reels.

You will ride and fish in luxury from 36’ Yellowfin 36 boats designed for smooth, dry rides in the blue water, and powered by a trio of fast, dependable 300-horsepower Yamaha outboards. What that means for you is a boat that skims across the water at 50 mph or more. You will be first to the best fishing, while arriving safely. You will fish from Shearwater and Skeeter boats for inshore trips.

At typical day begins at 6 a.m. and concludes at 6 p.m. Offshore rates are $1,700 plus fuel costs for up to 6 anglers. Inshore rates are $800 for up to 3 people or another $50 for a fourth angler. Fuel, artificial and dead bait is included.

By Craig Lamb

Drive just 19 miles south of the New Orleans French Quarter, and you arrive in the heart of the Louisiana Sportsman’s Paradise.

Fish endless banks of estuaries and miles of marsh await you. Ride and fish in style in Skeeter Boats.

Maybe even take a quick flight in a seaplane and wade the flats for trophy redfish.

You can do that and much more at Bourgeois Fishing Charters. World-class redfish and speckled trout are the prizes. Catch both amid the pure scenic beauty in the inshore marshes and out into the Gulf of Mexico.

Captain Theophile Bourgeois has more than 25 years of saltwater guiding experience. Bourgeois is a household name around Lafitte. He should be. Thousands of repeat clients over the years are treated like family by him, his guides and staff.  

You can catch speckled trout in the inshore marshes or venture out to Chandelier Island to wade the flats for giant bull redfish. You will get there by a quick flight in one of the five seaplanes that depart from the lodge and land on the fishing water. Click here for more info and to watch a video about the island adventure.

The demands of saltwater fishing require a tough, dependable boat that is loaded with features needed for a long day on the water. That is why Bourgeois chooses Skeeter for his fleet.

Skeeter is recognized for building the first bass boat in 1948. Since then, Skeeter has been setting the standard, raising the bar, and leaving the rest of the boating industry in the wake of its innovative design, quality construction, and satisfied customers.

Saltwater anglers looked on with envy as Skeeter built a loyal customer base around the best built, high-performance boats in class. Skeeter responded by carrying over the performance, versatility, handling and control of its legendary bass boats to a bay boat market.

The results are the SX Series run by Bourgeois and his guides. Quick hole shots for safety and performance, a shallow draft to fishing skinny water for speckled trout and redfish, and a smooth dry ride for running the bays and rivers.

The place where clients meet guides and their boats is called a fishing camp in these parts. At Bourgeois Fishing Charters that place is a destination. Luxury and hospitality defined, the likes of which you encounter when staying at a four-star resort. Skeeter owners get all that and more in the bay boat lineup.

The reason? Bourgeois restored an abandoned elementary school (which he attended) and turned it into a world-class fishing lodge.

Living the ‘Skiff Life”

 

Living the ‘Skiff Life”

By Craig Lamb

Fishing hard. Playing harder. Cruising the skinniest of water, or heading out miles away from shore into the blue water. Doing the heavy lifting and transporting the goods for a job. Spending quality time with family and friends on a secluded beach. Watersports? Yep, you do that too. Scuba diving over a wreck in the bay. Snorkeling over a reef on the lookout for a lobster dinner.

All of the above describes the Skiff Life. Carolina Skiff owners have been doing it now for 30 years and counting. After three decades of building loyal customers, those owners define what fishing, playing and working mean in a skiff-designed boat.

Carolina Skiff continues responding to the needs of its loyal owners by designing and evolving with what it takes to live The Skiff Life. Need proof? Here you go.

For novices and skilled boaters, the J-Series is the perfect skiff for entry-level boaters or anyone looking for an affordable boat. The J-Series is the perfect skiff for just knocking around the marina or in the skinniest of sloughs, backwaters or mangroves. With 100 percent composite construction the J-Series doesn’t have an expiration date when it comes to rugged durability and a long lasting finish.

 

A pillar of the brand is the DLX Series, tracing its roots back to the first model built in 1983. Since then the DLX has built a loyal following as one of the most durable, versatile and stable boats on the water. Plain and simple, you just can’t beat it as a runabout, commercial workboat or for just about any activity on the water.

Could the DLX get even more versatile? Yep, and the proof is in the DLX Tunnel Series. The DLX is known for shallow draft, and that gets even more of a lift with the Tunnel Series.

What gives tunnel hulls an advantage is the higher outboard motor mount. Water is dispersed from the hull into a tunnel. Undisturbed water is then funneled to the prop for better bite and less cavitation. Throttle the outboard and the boat quickly gets on plan and stays there without porpoising. What else happens with a tunnel is better performance and even fuel economy. Less hull in the water means less drag, which also means less fuel consumed.

High payload capacity, extra wide body, tough and reliable. Reads like the advertising tag line for a pickup truck, right?

The reality is those words also describe the DLX Extra Wide Series. The DLX-EW draws very little water while remaining stable. You can carry more weight further and faster using less horsepower. Those unique qualities come from a patented hull design with bow splash guards to keep you dry from spray over the bow. And positive tracking keels on the running surface keep the boat tracking true while maneuvering without the typical flat-bottom slide when making turns. Go extra wide with three models with 103” beams with lengths overall from 23’ 2” to 27’ 1.”

A top choice for fishing in shallow water is the JVX Series. A lightweight hull and modified V-hull design combine for a boat that will carry more, go further and faster with less horsepower. You get excellent maneuverability and handling with the positive tracking keels. Patented splash-guards provide the smooth, dry ride. Choose from nine models in center console, side console or stick steering.  

Fishermen have plenty of options from which to choose. Nine different models are in the JVX Series lineup, and you can customize the rig to fit angling needs.

What’s in a name? When the boat is the Ultra Elite Series. The proof is in the name. Ultra means extreme. Superior defines elite. The Ultra Series delivers with three boats in one. Equally at home inshore lake or river, in the bays along the coastline, fishing the tidal creeks and offshore exploring. Whatever the adventure the Ultra Series can do it all. Choose between four models from 19’ to 24.’

Those will come in handy for the latest fishing craze in South Louisiana.

“Swordfish have gotten really popular, and recently we’ve hooked up with lots of big fish,” said Pisa.

The swordfish are being caught from 1,300 t0 1,700 feet deep. Those electric reels make the work easier and more fun for fighting the big swordfish. Those are running up to 200 pounds.

Try These Tips for Snook

 

Try These Tips for Snook

By Craig Lamb

Acrobatic leaps. Long runs. Screaming drags. Beautiful scenery. Go fishing for snook, and you get all of the above in one package.

Light tackle inshore anglers consider the snook one of the most sporting species of all to catch. Snook generally range in size from 3 to 15 pounds and catching giants up to 30 pounds is common during summer when the fish spawn around inlets and passes.

Mangrove shorelines on Southwest Florida and passes and inlets on the opposite coast are classic areas to catch snook in the Sunshine State. On both coasts, you can count on finding snook around bridges and piers, grass flats and nearby deep holes.

The Homosassa River, on the Gulf of Mexico side, is considered their northern range. Find then on the Atlantic side from the Florida Keys to the mid-coast around Daytona.

Current, structure and bait. Remember those three key simple needs of a snook, and you will have eliminated a lot of water.

Snook, like a freshwater largemouth bass, are opportunistic predators. They chase after food that requires the least effort. Current makes that job easier.

Current and structure go together because the latter requirement feeds the predator instinct. Snook like to ambush bait, and current breaks make ideal casting targets.

Bait is the given portion of the three-sided equation for catching snook. Find the bait, add the current, an ambush point and you have the perfect setup for snook.

What makes snook fishing so easy, and appealing is live bait is not a requirement. In fact, big splashy topwater baits spark the predator instinct of a snook. So do popper-shaped topwater plugs, glider baits, and wake baits. Fish them slow or fast until determining the mood of the fish.

A top choice for fishing in shallow water is the JVX Series by Carolina Skiff. A lightweight hull and modified V-hull design combine for a boat that will carry more, go further and faster with less horsepower.

You get excellent maneuverability and handling with the positive tracking keels. Patented splash guards provide the smooth, dry ride that Carolina Skiff has been known for after 30 years and counting in the business.

Fishermen have plenty of options from which to choose from the JVX Series. Nine different models are in the JVX Series lineup, and you can customize the rig to fit angling needs.

Worth a strong look for snook fishing is the 18 JVX CC. This center console boat with a 78” beam and 17’ 9” overall is ideal for running the winding, shallow channels of the back country and mangroves where snook lurk.

The 18 JVX CC gives you an edge for accessing shallow creeks and rivers with it’s modified V-hull design. Carry more weight farther and faster with less horsepower. Add that together, and the sum is a boat that performs better than any other at a cost that can’t be beat.

Tidewater Boats are designed with distinctive Carolina Flair, setting up the dry ride, to direct waves away from the hull using reverse chines. Tidewater likes to appropriately call that feature the Dry Chine Ride.

Carolina Flair and the Dry Chine Ride are enhanced by another feature adding to the smooth, dry ride. The Corrugated Grid Stringer Vertebra absorbs the shock of waves against the hull in choppy water.

Composite construction, foam filled hulls, cored decks, and gunwales plus much more quality design, materials and construction are extras that come with the price of a Tidewater.

He shares with his guide clients more than 20 years of experience of fishing the area.

“You might say that saltwater runs in my veins.”

This spring an angler landed a yellowfin tuna weighing 226 pounds. The fish caught from 300 feet of water ranks as the 10th heaviest yellowfin tuna ever brought to the scales in Louisiana.

Pisa says trolling for deep fish and setting lines behind a chum line are two popular methods his clients can expect to use on a day of fishing. So are topwater fishing and chunking baits at schooling tuna.
