Looking for specs/reds

Just trying to get some ideas on where is the best spot to try and catch some specs and reds the first weekend of February. If anyone can let me know, I'd greatly appreciate it. Heading to Grand Isle/Fourchon area that weekend.

February is probably the hardest month to catch fish. But fish the Biloxi Marsh or Delacroix for reds, shrimp under a cork, and move around A LOT.

If the water temperature drop to the 40s from an extreme cold snap, the reds will pile up in some well-known holes. Otherwise, fish flats near deep water. If you find one red this time of year, they are sometimes ganged up.

Forget about the trout unless there is a warm snap.

I might try some of my go-to grass beds in Lake P as I have been basically wasting my time duck hunting and have noted how pristine the water is out there as well as how thick and lush the grass beds are.I typically catch nice reds out there but not quite this early.Lake P can most definitely be a gem,just ask a few of the fine fishers I have had to opportunity to take for some sight-fishing for reds and nothing beats a Bomber Spinner bait tossed alongside thick grassbeds,once the waters warm a tad.Shallower water definitely heats up a tad quicker than deeper water and where I was nabbing reds,they barely had enough water to float em!!!Good luck wherever ya head to.Got lotta folks more interested in chasing sac a lait in T-Funky and I might suggest that til waters warm up,then all bets off.Trust me,plenty of fine reds so close to home,hard to pass em up!!!
