I have a wild hair to go inshore fishing somewhere. I have picked out the Houma,Leeville and Grand Isle area in La. I have never done any kind of saltwater fishing and know absolutely zero about it but I am just gonna wing it.
My vacation is the first week of Sept so I have a whole week to fish.
Am I making a mistake going here or should I go to Venice? Also any body got an recommendations on where to stay or maybe a place to camp? Any good restaurants in the area?
Gonna bring my kayak with me and I will be alone the whole week.


Lets go fishing

I've got a couple of cousins that live in Larose and Golden Meadow.
Get at least a handheld gps. That is the most complicated batch of water ever.
Don't leave your vehicle in a lonely place.
It's not Texas, there is a lot of private water, be mindful of signs and where you are. Do NOT think you can drag your yak around a canal gate.
Catch a moving tide at a canal/bayou intersection, and you can tie up and catch a few hundred trout and never move.
Plum chartreuse paddle tail plastic is all you need.

There are no bad eating joints.

Hey Paul,

I love fishing the LA1 corridor (Leeville, Grand Isle, etc). Marsh as far as the eye can see and no lack of fish.

Reds can be found almost everywhere year round. Just look for points with moving water, clean ponds and/or oyster beds. Trout move around a little more depending on the time of year, so be sure to check the local fishing reports if you're hoping to get into them.

Regarding navigation, I've found google maps is usually enough to keep myself oriented when exploring a new stretch of water. Just know where you launched and pull up the map if you find yourself disoriented. As a kayak fishermen, you can definitely get into some skinny water mazes in the marsh, but you're also less likely to be more than a mile or two from where you started.

Good luck and feel free to message me if you have any specific questions.

Chris

Venice is much harder without a guide. Go to Grand Isle. We stay at Sun and Sand cabins and eat a lot at Jo Bobs.
