Re: Fishing in Dularge

If trout is the targeted species then you are waaaaay to far north at this time of year. The area you are fishing would be considered the upper estuary. This upper estuary will hold trout in the late fall and winter months(generally speaking). Late spring and summer the trout are out in or near the gulf. As the days get shorter the trout begin to filter back into the inshore lakes. Soo, April-September think coon point, enstar, Mardi Gras rigs etc, sept-November-ish look in the sister lake lake mechant area, November-March lake decade low deuce upper estuary type places. Leave that market shrimp at home unless your after reds and drum. Dularge trout readily take artificial lures. All you need are some lead heads(1/8 and 1/4 oz) and some soft plastic tails like matrix or h&h etc. try one rig with a popping cork and one with a double or single rig so you can probe the water column i.e. Fish the bottom middle and top to see what the fish prefer. For reds get back in the duck ponds and throw gold spoons or spinner baits or that nasty bait shrimp you take with you every time you go fishing.
