What makes St. Tammany Parish such a sweet spot for fishing? Location. And amenities. The family-friendly attractions, fine dining, and comfortable accommodations make St. Tammany Parish a destination the whole family can enjoy. And there’s prime access to all the Gulf’s hot spots, including the Rigolets and Lake Pontchartrain.
Just ask Gulf Coast Fisherman's Vernon Summerlin: "The parish is nearly one-quarter water with about 30 boat ramps and marinas providing access to redfish, specks, flounder and other game fish species. Many saltwater anglers consider the redfish the ultimate gamefish for its tenacious fight. I've had reds stretch my string from Virginia to Texas but the best catching I've ever experienced has been here." Read here about his St. Tammany fishing experience with Capt. Mike Gallo from Angling Adventures of Louisiana.
Once you've caught your limit, be sure and savor the bounty of the bayou with seafood from some of St. Tammany’s top chefs.

Don Dubuc: Radio, TV and tacos, too
Local radio/TV personality Don Dubuc will be fishing with the pros on Thursday, October 3 to tape his Fish and Game Report for WWL TV, and is one of our celebrity judges for the Chef's Redfish Cooking Competition on Saturday. Dubuc’s a familiar voice and face to Louisiana fishing enthusiasts who listen to him on the “Outdoors Show With Don Dubuc” on WWL AM and FM, “More Outdoors With Don Dubuc” on ESPN 1350 AM and watch his Fish and Game Report on WWL TV each Thursday. An avid outdoorsman and conservationist as well as broadcaster, Dubuc has extensive knowledge of fishing in Louisiana. Dubuc, who lives on the Northshore, isn’t a bad cook either. Here he generously shares his recipe for fish tacos.
DON’S FISH & CREOLE TOMATO TACOS
1 poblano pepper
1 red bell pepper
2 Creole tomatoes
1 bunch of cilantro (tops)
2 tbsp. honey
Skin the onion, remove seeds from the peppers and finely chop all. Quarter tomatoes. Add tomatoes, onion and peppers to a hot skillet with a little oil. Saute the veggies until soft. Chop cilantro tops and place vegetables and cilantro into a bowl and add honey.
1 bag pre-cut cole slaw veggies
Marie’s cole slaw dressing
1 small can chipotle
peppers in adobo sauce
Black pepper to taste
Combine cole slaw greens and dressing to your liking. Finely chop 2 chipotle peppers and add to the cole slaw mixture. Blend well, folding in about 1/2 teaspoon of the adobo sauce. (Keep remaining peppers and sauce for use in mayo, to follow.) Finish with a dash of black pepper.
2 tbsp. prepared tartar sauce
1 finely chopped chipotle pepper
1 tsp. adobo sauce
Combine tartar sauce, chopped chipotle and adobo sauce. Stir well.
Grill, fry, blacken or bake any of your favorite types of fish. (I prefer grilled or blackened redfish.)
TO PREPARE TACOS
Microwave your favorite (I like flour) tortillas for 20 seconds between 2 paper plates or paper towels. Spread a generous amount of the mayo on the warm tortilla. Spoon some of the slaw and salsa into the center of the tortilla, then add the prepared fish. Wrap to
form a soft taco.
