    Delacroix Mix Catch Bash

    This morning Peter and I left out of Hopedale, La., under calm conditions right before the projected cold front that was scheduled to come the following day. Many boats were seen heading out, more than I remember in a long time. We stop off at Bait Inc to get live shrimp with our sights on fishing the near coastal areas of Black Bay. Our first stop saw many seagulls and boats fishing under them which means trout chasing shrimp to the surface fleeing for their life. We caught trout under these birds but not as fast as we expected. Many nearby boats fishing, but we didnít witness many fish being caught. We moved deeper into the interior marsh areas and came upon a bunch of frenzied feeding sheepshead and redfish, but a good number of the latter were under sized. We came in with a nice loaded box of mixed fish, beating the rain that was forecasted for the evening.

    Good fishiní

    SPECK HIT
    Two of us left out of Hopedale to fish the outer areas along the coast where reports had it fish are on the move to the inside areas. Armed with live shrimp it took awhile before the bite started using popping corks fished 3 ft down. Water was extremely high but had decent clarity.
    We caught a nice box of trout but when the heat started to warm the water the fish stopped biting

    Freshwater Delacroix Mix Bag Catch

    Wednesday Peter and I left out of Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix and headed out to Oak River area down the Pencil canal. Weather was dead calm under cloudy skies and very clean water. We were armed with live and fresh shrimp and various artificial soft plastics. Long story short, the water throughout the area is drinking water. Not salt content. We caught a pile freshwater cats, redfish (a number of throw back, under size ones too), one giant flounder, several black bass, some white bass and plenty of disappointment with the speckled trout being devoid.

    Bad luck Friday the 13th? Last Friday I had Mathew, Bianca, and Abijah from Georgia on the Blazer Bay. They wanted to do some rig fishing for what bigger fish, so the plan was to run out deep into the Sound. Besides being Friday the 13th, the wind was blowing harder that forecast, we had a full moon to deal with, and to top it off the crew brought bananas. We slowly pounded it out to our first rig and it was pretty slow except for the catfish. Conditions were pretty sloppy and it looked like the bananas were working against us. We moved to another rig that is usually full of big drum, bull reds, and sheepshead, hoping we would find the action they were looking for. Well the creatures we were seeking where hard to come by, but the trout went nuts for a little bit and saved the day by filling up the box. To top the day off, on the way back in I spotted a triple tail hanging under a clump of hyacinths. I spun the boat around and eased up to it. That Campoís live shrimp was just too much for him to resist and on ice he went. They had a great time, caught a bunch of fish and blew the banana theory out of the water.

    I have some openings the next couple of weeks and the fishing is really good right now. Donít forget, Fall is fast on its way and some of the best fishing of the year comes with it. Get your dates locked in and donít miss out. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.

    All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campoís live shrimp under a 4-Horsemen cork on Capt. Rory's United Charters custom rods provided by CUI Products with Penn reels, spooled with KastKing line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Jus Grab it Glove.

    Meat hauling fun in Shell Beach. Forrest Fife and Sean Stuckey came down for another round of crab eating and fishing. They cooked and ate some pretty crabs the night before at the lodge and in the morning we headed into the Sound. They really were not too interested in trout, so I hit some rigs I have not fished this year. We bounced around a few spots and found a few trout, but plenty of the other creatures they were looking for. Good eating sized reds along with bulls mixed in and plenty sheepshead. We made a stop in the marsh on the way in and the guys topped off the box. Then it was back to crab boiling for them.

    Stormy day in Shell Beach. Rudy Ramos and his son Jonathan came down to get in a trip before classes started up again. The plan was to start out looking for trout. Our first couple of stops did not produce so with weather closing in on us we ran back inside to look for some reds. We managed to fill the box, avoid the rain, and had a great time.

    Port Sulphur solo trip this morning before the rain.
    Fishing lures and live shrimp under cork with dead calm winds. Plenty juvenile trout under dive-bombing seagulls in Bay Ronquille. Got tired of catching and releasing under sized trout. Came in before the rain with 17 trout. The gafftopsail cats drove me nuts.

    One stop shopping in Shell Beach. Today I had the Kirkís Tire and Accessories gang of Kirk, KB, Blake, and David on the Blazer Bay. We opted to go for redfish and it was a good move, even though the calm winds were tempting for a trout run. We made one stop fishing a grass line and never moved. Campoís live shrimp under a 4-Horsemen cork made for steady action. The guys filled the box with limits of reds, 2 stud flounder, and 8 bass. They then caught and released for a while before it was time to run from a storm headed our way.

    Monday I had Alvin Crab Man Royce and his son Justus out to look for some trout before school starts up again. Conditions were nice, but the bite was tough for us. We started out wasting a lot of bait at the Rocks, so we then ran deep into the Sound. Had plenty of action, just a lot of trash fish around. Got on one trout bite of some nice big trout that is if you could keep the bait from the Ladyfish. Matrix Shads fished both tightlined or under a cork worked better than the shrimp that day. Fun day with good friends.

    Back to the Beach. Things are getting back to normal here in Shell Beach. Barry was just a minor annoyance, and the water only came up enough to put a little mud on the docks. It must have been enough to get the Redfish excited though. No trout reports yet, but the Redfish are going nuts in the marsh. I have Wednesday and Thursday open and the winds and weather looks great. You have been cooped up inside too long, so book one or both of these days and letís rip some lips.

    Breezy day two in Shell Beach. Tuesday was day two for Forrest and Robert. We tried to get on the trout early like the day before, but the winds were just too high. We managed to put 12 good trout in the box, before giving up on the trout. We hit the marsh to look for reds and it started out a little slow, but like the flick of a switch they turned on and we limited out and released a lot more. Another successful meat haul for the boys from Monroe.

    Speckled Monday at Shell Beach. Forrest Fife brought Monroe radio personality Robert DjWorm Jarvis down for his first taste of the salt marsh. We started out looking for trout and got on a good bite right off the bat. The trout were mixed in size with plenty throwbacks to weed through, but the keepers were really nice. The bite got interrupted briefly by a large drum that Robert beat into submission. We had 55 trout on ice when things slowed down so we made a move to a shoreline and the guys picked off 8 nice reds to top off the box. Fun day of fishing with more to come for day two.

    Dularge Guide Trip

    Yesterday I hired a guide to get to learn the Dularge area, which I really haven’t fished before. The guide service was Bayou Guide service which has a very good reputation for catching trout and redfish. Captain Bill Lakes heads up 5 boats. Captain Brady was the guide assigned to me and it was just us two for this trip. I was forewarned that the fishing had recently been off and I could reschedule, but I declined, because I really wanting to learn the area. Weather was extremely calm and awfully hot and the tide was not productive. Fishing the outer coastal areas, we got into a good trout bite, but it was short-lived and we had to move around a lot, picking off a trout or two here and there. We used only various swim baits both on corks and tight line. The gafftopsail cats were intermittently interrupting our efforts. All in all we had a good trip, catching one limit of trout, which is 25 trout. We threw back a good bit of undersized fish.

    One of those days at the Beach. Tuesday I had Oneofthepack and Big Leon on the Blazer Bay. Our goal was to fish deep in the Sound for trout. The wind was a little more than forecast, but not too bad. We made several moves and covered a lot of water. We got on a fast trout bite, with more throwbacks than keepers, but the keepers were nice. The sharks were out in force at a few stops, giving us some thrills. Still it was a fun day on the water with a couple of great guys.

    Reds on the Beach. I picked Kevin Rome and 4 of his friends in Fort Beauregard. It was a little too breezy to chase trout outside, so to the marsh we headed. Things started out a little slow, picking up a few keepers, but mostly rat reds. Made a couple of moves and got on a good bite that filled the box with pretty reds. Limits of reds and a great time had by all.

    Thursday at the Beach I had the pleasure of fishing with Tommy and Quinn Morrison. The guys wanted to chase Redfish in the marsh and it was a good call. At our first stop we got on a good bite that picked up as a rain shower passed over. It seemed like the fish liked the rain, because when it stopped the bite slowed down. After that shower passed the wind really kicked up. We bounced around a couple other spots getting on another good bite, before calling it a day with limits of Reds and a few Bass.

    Wednesday Shell Beach meat haul. Forrest Fife brought his buddy Sean Stuckey down to The Beach from Monroe, LA for his first inshore trip. Sean has done plenty fishing, but not inshore saltwater. Funny thing is we caught plenty familiar freshwater along with limits of Reds. There was lots of action all day long to go with the cutting up. Fun day on the water and a full box with 15 Reds, 10 Stripers, 4 Bass, and 9 Sheepshead.

    Speckled trout Tuesday in Shell Beach. Today I had Dr Steve Slaton and family onboard. They really wanted Trout, so we gave that a try first. The wind made things a little sporty, but the trout did not care today. Campoís live shrimp under 4-Horsemen corks put 82 trout on ice, along with a couple of Reds that were let go. It was a fun day on the water with a fun family.

    Delacroix Mixed Bag Slam

    Peter and I left out of Delacroix this morning under clear skies and calm winds armed with live and fresh shrimp. Alligator Pass was out first stop and there was nothing happening in the area including not seeing many alligators as we normally would. We left that area and headed toward Oak River via the Pencil pipeline where we got into not-stop redfish and plenty white bass. Carolina rig was the ticket baited with live or fresh shrimp. We threw back many under sized redfish, but limited out on them. The box at end of trip boasted 40 white bass, 3 black bass, 4 freshwater cats and 1 large flounder. River water abounded throughout the whole area, evidenced by the freshwater species aforementioned. There were only a few boats out today in comparison to prior trips here.

    Windy reds in Shell Beach. Today was day one for the Mike Drake group. With the wind blowing 20 out the NE trout were out of the question, so we headed into the marsh to chase redfish. It was never a fast crazy bite, but steady enough to keep us around and the guys filled the box with limits of reds along with 2 trout, 2 flounder, and a few sheepshead. It was a fun day and hopefully the winds stay down for tomorrow so we can chase trout for day two.
