The Jack Up boat converted to a fishing lodge arrived at Curlew Island Friday and was welcomed with slack tides but plenty nice size trout. My friend Dave and I were on the maiden voyage.
Yesterday they moved to Breton as the trout are there too and cell phone communications are good.
I'm headed back out Thursday to give Breton a try.
Their web site is chandeleur-islander.com and Facebook page is chandeleur-islander lodge. This is a one of a kind facility. This is the same family that operated the houseboat Chandeleur Islander at Breton back in the 90's.

Here in Slidell LA we can feel the agony of tearing out and rebuilding as we went thru Katrina in 2005. But need to share the info that since the storms have passed...the trout have really turned on at the Chandeleur Islands. Limits of 25 in the 18-20 inch class hitting anything you throw at them. 21 boats and many wade fisherman around Breton Island this morning and all limiting out. The islands have naturally rebuilt themselves since Katrina and the fishing is better than ever.
Many TX anglers had to postpone their fishing trip plans but we hope to see you again once your disaster subsides. Our prayers to you.
Bruce

The jack up fishing lodge at Breton Island has now put into effect new seasonal rates for lodging and meals. It's now $ 200 per night per person all inclusive except booze. The trout bite is on and expected to continue until about Christmas. In October the Tarpon migrate thru and they surround Gosier and Curlew Islands. Can check out their web site at www.chandeleur-islander.com

The Chandeleur Islands took a bit of a beating due to Hurricane Nate but as the high tides recede we'll find out more.
The Chandeleur Islander fishing lodge rode it out at Breton Island as the eye passed directly over it unscathed except loosing the floating dock which will be quickly replaced. Fishing will resume today as guests are heading out. Please check their Facebook page at Chandeleur-Islander Lodge.

Had the opportunity to make the trip to Breton Island and spend a long weekend aboard the " fishing lodge in the sky " ( the jack up lodge ...Chandelerur Islander ). Friday's fishing took place at the islands west end to gentle winds and hungry redfish out hustling the specs. Ten of us wade fishing and couldn't get away from the reds. Easy limits of five but kept just enough for dinner. Then Friday night a strong cold front came thru and Sat the remaining 5 of us worked the inside pocket in the lee shore fighting 35mph winds. The specs were somewhat lazy but still managed to land 40+ in the afternoon when the sun came out. The lodge is repositioning soon to Pass A Loutre off the MS river next to the public Fed/State management areas for the rest of the spec inside fishing season and the opening of the duck hunting season November 11. More info on their FB page chandler-islander lodge and the FB page of Wanda Stewart ( the fishing lady that has taken her fishing passion to the next level )

The "Lodge in the Sky" Chandeleur- Islander is on the way to Pass a Loutre at the end of the MS flyway to accommodate up to 22 guests for the LA duck season. It will be centrally located near the Federal and State management areas. The last day of Breton Island fishing yesterday netted 2 limits of big trout. Hate to leave them biting but the ducks are quacking.
