BIGFISH: Barataria Basin is shaping up to be a great fall fishing destination

Late summer, early fall means big fish moving into our coastal waters along with speckled trout and redfish. In this week's BIGFISH report, Capt. CT says the Barataria area is hot right now.

Great fishing can be found in the Barataria Basin right now, between Lafitte and Grand Isle. Capt. CT Williams and Capt Lane Zimmer chased speckled trout and redfish and even put a 20 pound Jack Crevalle in the boat on light line. Bull reds and Big Jacks are all over our coastal water right now.
