About The Long Bay

About Long Bay, LA

Long Bay is situated in Jefferson County, 9.3 miles to the north of Lafitte. Other nearby cities and towns in the area are Barataria, Jean Lafitte, Galliano, Golden Meadow, Cut Off, Pointe a la Hache, and Larose. The bay’s entire area coverage has not yet been disclosed. 

The largest coastal restoration project to ever be made is bound to happen in Louisiana. With a proposed two billion budget, The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) is deciding on whether the reconnection of the Mississippi River to the southern marsh of Belle Chasse, which is located close to Long Bay, would be part of the state’s Coastal Master Plan. The plan would be executed through the aid of the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion Project, located 13.3 miles north of Jefferson County. Their idea is to use the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion Project to supply river water into Barataria Bay.

Long Bay Seasonal & Other Description

Fishing Seasonality

Although tons of species can be caught in the area, the best months for anglers to consider fishing would be in October, November, and December. For those who eye speckled trout and redfish, they are evident in the spot during these months. Although these months are known to be hunting season for many, anglers in Louisiana would be aware that this is also the best fishing season in the state. For others who have prior commitments and can’t make it to the peak fishing season, considering the months of April, May and June would be practical. In these months, anglers will see the abundance of trophy trout and red snapper species. Anglers who prefer offshore fishing should consider scheduling their trip in the months of January, February, and March since the first quarter of the year is considered prime for offshore fishing. Offshore anglers can spot yellowfin tuna and big wahoo species from January to March. On the other hand, onshore anglers can look out for red drum and sheepshead species. The types of species that anglers could land in these waters all depend on their timing. Most fish species are seasonal so it would be best to plan a fishing trip in the months wherein preferred species of anglers are prevalent. Keeping up with the weather updates in the state would also be something to note as to avoid any inconvenience during the trip.
