Not a Bad Way to Spend a Birthday

Ronnie Artigue boarded the boat in Shell Beach with his son, Michael, his brother Gary, and his nephew, Robert. It was Gary and Robert’s Birthday, so Ronnie wanted to treat them to a Louisiana fishing charter. I have been beating up the same area for speckled trout for the last few weeks, so after a couple of stops in the morning, I bailed and decided to go look around. We caught fish at most stops for the rest of the day, but never did find them stacked up the way I would have liked. But we kept on until we filled the box with a variety of fish, including speckled trout, Redfish, and sheepshead. Thanks again to Ronnie Artigue for setting up the trip! I’ll see them again in October.


Jakamo South is a Louisiana charter fishing guide service operating out of Shell Beach, just 25 miles south of the New Orleans French Quarter. We specialize in inshore species, such as speckled trout, redfish, flounder, and drum.

All fish were caught on Campo’s live shrimp with 13 Fishing Black Omen Rods and Fins Braid fishing line.
