Fishing the Louisiana Marsh with Captain Greg Moon

My friend Paul Raffety and I just completed two days of fishing with Captain Greg Moon of New Orleans. This adventure-booked almost a year in advance- included some challenging conditions: line storms, thunderstorms, rain, and high dirty water.

Captain Greg led us through those challenges and we emerged with five giant bull reds and a trophy forty-pound gator gar on 10-pound spin and a jig. The trip was wildly successful.

 

Captain Greg’s phone number is 702-497-1673

His web address is  http://www.louisianaflyfishingcharters.com/guides-captains/capt-greg-moon

 

Here is a tasty photo recap of the experience.

We got out for a few hours with a couple of friends down in Boca. We ran Adam’s boat with Capt.Cameron and got on a nice Tarpon bite.

Tested out the Spooltek Lure, 13fishing Concept C low profile reel and the Envy Rod combo.

Here is a quick video clip of one of the double hook up we had.

Overview
“Despite having fished seatrout for years, I hadn’t any idea how much I didn’t know until I read Maizler’s definitive new work on the species.”–Doug Olander, editor in chief, Sport Fishing Magazine

“Maizler’s name has been inexorably linked to seatrout for decades. This book is an overdue, welcome, and essential addition to our angling literature. Kudos to the master!”–Glenn Law, executive editor, Salt Water Sportsman Magazine

“From seatrout habits to state-by-state seatrout fishing techniques, Maizler covers everything one needs to know with regard to becoming a successful angler for this popular species.”–Tommy L. Thompson, author of The Saltwater Angler’s Guide to Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida

Known as “everyman’s fish,” the spotted seatrout is one of the top ten species for recreational fishing in the United States.

In Fishing for Spotted Seatrout, Jan Maizler, a world-renowned light tackle expert, shares more than 30 years’ experience and innovative tactics for catching this popular fish in its range from the Carolinas to Texas. For beginners, he offers an overview of the unique characteristics and habits of the spotted seatrout. For more seasoned fishermen, he presents an in-depth analysis of the different tackle, baits, techniques, and tidal conditions for achieving the best catches. A chapter on weather and season will help ensure angling success, regardless of conditions the calendar brings.
Maizler discusses chumming–a technique widely applied in other fisheries but mostly unknown for seatrout–and recommends the paddleboard, the newest vessel for hunting the spotted king. He also explores region-specific practices like wading, prevalent in Texas, and trolling live shrimp, common in Biloxi Marsh, and argues that their use can and should extend beyond these regions. Moreover, he demonstrates how to apply these new techniques on your next fishing expedition.

Covering every aspect of angling for this magnificent gamefish, Maizler’s comprehensive guide belongs on your bookshelf and in your tackle bag.

Jan Maizler, former International Game Fish Association world-record holder, is the author of nine books, including Fishing Florida’s Flats.

Juvenile Tarpon video

A short clip of our juvenile Tarpon fishery on the East Central Region of Florida. This fish was a little bigger than expected, was fun on the 7wt. Enjoy.

Prespawn Tailing redfish on a sting ray video

We got on some tailing redfish a few weeks ago. This was and exceptional day as the redfish were hovering around a large stingray following it where ever it decided to go.

 

I started to shoot photos but as the sun faded I lost the available lighting. I decided to take out the video camera to get some really cool images.

 

This was from a Kayak so I was able to get really close to the action. Enjoy.
