Hundreds of boats and wade fishermen fished Elmer's Island on Saturday and the trout didn't disappoint. We caught them on Matrix Shad Lemon Head plastics. Hopefully these fish will stick around the beaches for a few more weeks. Here's our Sportsman Report along with beach tactics from trout expert Tommy Vidrine.

Tommy Vidrine landed a monster 7.22 speck this morning in Grand Isle to take the lead in the Star Tournament. We happened to be at Bridgeside marina when the fish came in. What a fish! We also happened to be at the marina last year when his wife landed last years winning trout in Grand Isle. Congrats to Tommy and his crew!!!!
Monday afternoon -- winds finally calmed down enough to hit the rocks at Fourchon for some steady action -- Robert Vegas (Wakeside Marina) and fiancÃ©e Chelsea Hughes caught these hefty trout driftlining live croaker. Beautiful day!
We found huge snapper in West Delta 25 miles out yesterday. Went to one rig and could see plenty of fish but no bites. So we moved to the next rig and found very hungry fish that readily fed on our pogies and squid.
Big trout and cobia were all over the Bay Marchand rigs last weekend. Florida water helped us deal with the searing heat as we had the good fortune of hooking into six BIG lemonfish. We could only bring two in because of our light speck rods and a faulty gaff. We caught the fish on live croaker while fishing for mangroves. Wyatt and Atticus Redding and Jared from New Orleans had a blast!!! Too bad we can't go this weekend, but look for our ugly boat Labor Day weekend. We will be there!!!
