https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi8lJtNj2ww#t=17 Fall is creeping up on us again and the place to be the last several years during this season is and around the Great Wall in Chalmette. This man made monstrosity is a sight to see. This multi million or billon dollar project does more than keep the storm surge out it also hold loads of speckled trout and redfish for us fisherman. Louisiana game fish have really taken a liking to the wall especially in the fall and winter months. We fish around the wall, and rocks in MRGO. On light tide ranges we like to fish around the locks. Limits of speckled trout and redfish are a normal catch in this area. Here lately we have been throwing the new VORTEX SHAD near and around the wall and found the school trout and big reds schooled up. A lot of throw back trout are in the area but plenty enough keepers to keep your attention and every few cast a drag ripping redfish gets a hold of the Vortex. Simply jig the area with 3/8 and 1/2oz jig heads and cover some water until you find the fish piled up. Look for a good fall as a few big trout and reds have been patrolling the bridge pilings just behind DockSide also. Get out there and lets hope to be able to enjoy a storm free fall and expect some “good fishing.”
