Everything You Need to Know About Grand Isle, Louisiana Fishing

How is the fishing in Grand Isle?

Part island, part town, part swamp, part angler's paradise: located right where the marsh meets the Gulf, Grand Isle is arguably one of the best places to head fishing in this part of the country (perhaps only behind its big brother, Venice, LA).

Grand Isle is a four-season fishery with hundreds of species available and plenty of sportfishing for everyone. The population swells from 1500 to as much as 20000 in the summer months, and we can tell you that these people aren't just coming for the views.

Grand Isle Inshore Fishing

There are no guarantees in fishing, but with the amount of shallow water available to anglers, we'll be surprised if you don't catch some great inshore fish. The inshore grand slam is just a quick half-day charter away, and you'll have a great time going after reds, flounder, and especially speckled trout. You'll also find sheepshead and black drum among other species.

Grand Isle: The Tuna Capital of the Gulf?

Offshore means one thing, and that is hitting the offshore rigs for snapper and tuna. You'll have a bunch of options at your fingertips heading out, from mangrove snapper, to wahoo, to mahi, to tripletail, to grouper, but really if its the middle of the summer you'll be hitting red snapper, and the rest of the year you'll want to hit black and especially yellowfin tuna.
