Dularge marsh fishing 10/9/15

Been a while guys but I got a chance away from school and made a quick fishing trip Friday down to Dularge in search of some trout and reds in the marsh. I've heard some good reports the past couple weeks of trout showing up in good numbers in the marsh and lakes in Dularge so I had to go give it a try. We started fishing some reefs and cuts in Lake Merchant picking up a few fish here and there but most were small school trout. As the day went on we moved down to Sister Lake and Bayou Saveur with very little luck. We then made the move to some of my spots in Deer Bayou and started pecking away at some nice trout, reds, flounder, and bass. Even though the day was slow over all I still saw some good signs of the fish moving in. I guess the warmer weather and small tide had things messed up a little bit, but we ended the day with 15 nice trout, 1 red, 1 bass, and 2 flounder. The water looked nice and all the ponds are loaded with grass so I've got high hopes for this duck season. Saw some nice flocks of teal but we've still got a month and some cold fronts to push down those big flocks of gray ducks. All the fish were caught on matrix shads either tightlined or under a cork. Hopefully I can get back down there next week sometime cuz its only a matter of time until they start showing up thick. Anyone else been catching lately?

I'm just starting to fish Lake Mechant and the surrounding marsh. Went Saturday and caught 14 specks and 16 white keeper trout with a lot of 10' to 11' through backs. We chased the bird using double rigged Matrix shad.
