Grand Isle Fishing Overview
Part island, part town, part swamp, Grand Isle is a true angler's paradise. Located right where the marsh meets the Gulf, Grand Isle is arguably one of the best places to fish in the Gulf.
This is truly a four-season fishery with hundreds of species available and plenty of sportfishing for any angler. The population swells from 1,500 to as much as 20,000 in the summer months—and we can tell you that these people aren't just coming for the views.
Inshore Fishing in Grand Isle
With the amount of shallow water available to anglers near Grand Isle, we'll be surprised if you don't catch some quality inshore fish. If you’re lucky, the inshore grand slam (Speckled trout, Redfish, Flounder) can be accomplished in Grand Isle with just a half-day charter.
The peak of speckled trout fishing happens from spring into summer. Overlapping with trout, redfish and flounder start to heat up from summer into fall.
During the warmer months, bait fills the area which means these fish are constantly feeding.
Even in the winter you won't find much down-time because the sheepshead will be in large schools around hard structure.
With so many peak fishing seasons, it’s always the perfect time to take an inshore fishing trip in Grand Isle.
Deep Sea Fishing in Grand Isle: The Tuna Capital of the Gulf
Known most commonly for hitting the offshore rigs for snapper and tuna, Grand Isle offers top notch deep sea fishing and has plenty of offshore species for anglers to target throughout the year. You can drop bait to the depths and catch various snapper and grouper species, or go trolling for wahoo, kingfish, and tripletail.
Year round, the tuna bite is fantastic. Blackfin and yellowfin tuna know how to bring a fight and pack a ton of flavor.
If it’s the middle of the summer, you will want to head out and target red snapper before the quota is filled. The peak bite for mahi-mahi also fires up in the summer, and with unusual looks and delicious meat, this is an amazing fish to catch.
During the winter months, wahoo over 70 lbs are not uncommon during their big run that occurs during this time.
Regardless of the time of year, the offshore action in Grand Isle is almost guaranteed.
