New Orleans Offshore
From the heart of swinging New Orleans Paul heads for Cyprus Grove Marina, to join Richard Hussar to fish the Gulf of Mexico for a spot of rig fishing, although rig fishing is not quite what Paul expects with the entire fishing area surrounded by oil and gas drilling rigs. But there’s plenty of good fish to be caught around these rigs, which are known locally by anglers as ‘FADS’ or ‘fish attracting devices’ and they attract big numbers of fish like Snapper, Groupers, Specks and Amberjack. Drop the line down and it’s like a lucky dip as to what species the fish will be! Next day, they join experienced skipper, Frank Lawson and set off to the Gulf’s big game hunting grounds to try for the ton up, back breaking, hard fighting, Yellowfin Tuna.
