Oklahoma Redfish Slam!


Windy report from Tuesday, April 18th. I fished with Clyde Wheeler, his daughter, Jennifer, and his friend, Bob Meyerson. They were from Oklahoma and had never been saltwater fishing in their lives! Bob is a retired bass fishing guide and this was a bucket list wish that needed to be checked off. After this trip, he can double check it! We left the dock at 6:30am and headed straight for the marsh looking for reds. The crew had a flight out the next morning, so they didn’t want to keep any fish, just a few pictures. The action was busy all day. We caught some smaller fish early in the day. But as the day progressed, the fish got bigger. We caught and released close to 50 and headed back to the dock around 1pm. Everyone had a blast and these guys couldn’t believe how incredible the fishery is here in South Louisiana.

Jakamosouth is a New Orleans fishing charter operating out of Shell Beach, LA, just 25 miles south of the New Orleans French Quarter. We specialize in redfish, speckled trout, founder, and black drum.

Louisiana fishing at it’s best!
