Catching Specks Under Diving Birds In The Rigolets

The video you see above is the last part to a three-part series detailing a late-September fishing trip to Lake Pontchartrain and the Rigolets. 

Missed parts one and two? Here they are below!

We did not catch a limit when we started fishing grass beds, so that's why we made a couple moves to get onto that good September falling tide in order to locate migrating white shrimp.

To say that the move paid off would be an understatement.

As soon as we rolled to our destination we spotted not one, not two, but several flocks of diving seagulls going crazy on jumping shrimp, the same kind of jumping shrimp being driven to the surface by frenzied speckled trout.

As usual, there were throwbacks, errant white trout and the occasional gafftop, so the catfish flipper was put to work a few times.

But the highlight of the trip wasn't catching fish, or even catching a limit of table-fare speckled trout.

No, it was Dum Dum the Psycho Pelican!

We had a pelican crash the party and, to really appreciate the circumstances, you must watch the video (it got a little hairy there for a minute, but in the end made for a good laugh).

Exact Fishing Location

The secret to successful fishing is not specific fishing spots but rather selecting where to fish based upon the conditions.

This is an in-depth topic that can't be covered in a few paragraphs of text and that's the reason why I have two videos accompanying the YouTube video you watched above.

They are the Planning Video and Post Trip Review. They can be accessed via the button below, but are only accessible to members of LAFB Elite, since it is that membership that makes all of this possible in the first place.

The planning video details where I decided to fish based upon the conditions, and the Post Trip Review displays my boat's GPS tracks, revealing routes and exact fishing locations.

These tracks are made available to members of LAFB Elite for uploading to their own GPS.

We also look at the conditions that actually happened versus what was predicted. 

This is a great learning tool and the fastest way you can learn to catch great boxes of fish 100% on your own.
