Louisiana Saltwater Fishing

Some of the most popular Louisiana saltwater fishing spots can be found at the pier and bridge at Grand Isle, to which you can gain entrance through LA Hwy 1. The fishing bridge is made of wooden planks and pilings and was the original entrance to the isle. It is only a few blocks from the Gulf and now serves as a popular no charge public Louisiana saltwater fishing spot where you can catch a good number of bull redfish on a daily basis. The pier is actually located at the end of the isle and is accessible for a small fee but is directly in the Gulf for a great chance at redfish and more. There is also surf fishing all along the coast of Grand Isle, as well as Elmer’s Island, whether you have a boat or not. Here, Louisiana saltwater fishing from the Belle Pass rock jetties can produce quite a catch for patient anglers. There is also a public boat launch at Fourchon’s on Elmer’s Island, though vehicles are prohibited on Grand Isle beaches.

Because it has always been a popular sport, preservation of Louisiana saltwater fishing has been of major importance to the area as a way of life. Therefore, you’ll always find anglers looking for bull redfish, as well as many other species, along the Louisiana Gulf Coast.

    Dear Dan:

    I live in Lafayette, LA. My grandson would like to do some saltwater pier fishing. Do you know of any saltwater fishing piers in Vermilion Parish. Trying to stay close to home. Thank you in advance. Cynthia Baudoin.
