Dularge 2/1/14

Now with duck season over I decided to get the dust and cobwebs off of the bay boat and take her out for a day of fishing in dularge. We left Baton Rouge at 4 am and got on the water around 6:30 and we were off for another amazing day down in paradise. We hit a few holes where the reds were biting extremely well towards the end of duck season and we didn't manage a bite the entire morning. The tide wasn't moving very well so we decided to make the move further south around Bayou Seveur and still nothing for a couple hours.... Then finally the tide started moving right around noon when we were thinking about heading back to Baton Rouge and we found a cut with good water movement and it was on. Started slinging in reds consistently for the next hour and a half until we finished our 4 man limit. We also managed to catch 4 nice trout and a flounder amidst the school of redfish. I had my buddies from Dallas with me who don't ever get to do much saltwater fishing so they wanted to try and get on some big fish before we went home. I went into a deeper canal and we just let the matrix shads sit on the bottom until something came along and picked them up. Sure enough we got two nice bullreds in about 15 minutes and then we called it a day. Great way to get the bay boat geared up for the long fishing season ahead of us. Every single fish was caught on either the green hornet matrix shads or the tiger bait matrix shad.

It is amazing how many ducks I saw down in dularge yesterday. Driving through Lake Mechant and Mud Lake I was jumping thousands and thousands of birds all day long. I guess the ducks are smarter than us, they know when its safe for them to finally make it down. Perfect timing....

Capt rob I don't know what the deal was Saturday morning out there? The fish just weren't there. Did y'all manage to find any fish later on that day?

I think the fish are just moving out of that particular area because the water temperature has been unstable. The water is too shallow for them to find a stable place to hold up. I would have to assume they are in the main bayous closer to Lake Mechant. We ended up catching our limit in Bayou Saveur.

I think you are right about that Capt. Rob. Still got a few more weeks until they start showing up in the lakes I think though so I guess we will keep slamming those winter holes. I'll be back down there tomorrow morning and Im heading straight to that spot I saw you in and then going to work my way south after that. I hope this front doesnt come in and shut everything off. Have ya'll been catching the past few days?
