Windy Day in Delacroix

Today I took out Mark Hartman and some of his clients from the Baton Rouge area. They stayed overnight at Delacro Joes the night before and were eager to go in the morning. The only problem was a stiff southeast wind. We began around Four Horse Lake and were catching a few, but they were on the small side. So we headed a little closer to the outside and found some schooled up trout ready to bite in a frenzy. We were using live shrimp under a cork and then switched over to plastics. We had to wade through some throwbacks but finished with a box of 50 specks, a few white trout, one red and one drum. The guys on board today were excellent fisherman and made my job easy. The key to success today was finding bait in areas that were protected from the wind. The trout are staged near Black Bay, feeding on the schools of shrimp. Sometimes the birds will show you where they are other times you just have to hit points where you spot some bait activity. On windy days, you have to move a lot to find fish. Hopefully, the wind will lay down and will allow everyone to get out in the sound where the big ones are! I have a few openings next week and the rest of June. So if you would like to get in on the action, give me a call. CAPTAIN STEVE HIMEL – MARSHLAND ADVENTURES (504) 458-8737.
