I know it's been a tough summer for trout numbers.
But we have had some terrible days this year - I read where a guide has a good day or 2 - but not like normal. Even now some of the guides talk about the catches but the pictures show 4-5 anglers with 20-30 trout. Just this past week I'm only seeing redfish catches.
I have fished a dozen or so times this summer and never ran into a school of throw back trout.
Anybody have any answers ?
I'm taking to fellow fishermen from East Louisiana to Dulac area.
Hopefully the fall fishing picks up.
Maybe I just can't find it - but didn't there use to be a way to browse Fishing Reports by area? I know when I go post a report it asks what area to put it in - but I can see a way to browse like years past? Hopefully someone can show me how to get to the links - but for now if I post into a certain folder I create a shortcut to that folder.
Thanks guys -
I believe more people would be on the forum if they were formatted like THT or BBC (The Hull Truth or BassBoatCentral)
Struggled to catch trout at Last Island on Saturday.
My wife and I did manage to catch 12 nice trout 16-20' close to noon.
But we watched nobody catching trout all along the island?
Dozen boats & more than dozen waders...
Is the fresh water the problem?
I had heard of limits last Tuesday/Wednesday on East Timberlier.
If anyone gets House Floor Updates - please post.
It started late.
Amendment 3033 passed - pushing till 2020 and effective resolution.
Blame Gisclair for this - bought and paid for...
We caught a bunch of trout on Saturday at Raccoon Point using soft plastics, BUT we also had a bunch of small 6-8' fish that kept eating our plastics in half, we hooked a few and they kinda looked like Bluefish or shad type (not pinfish).
Does anyone know what they were?
Thanks in advance
I wish I would have snapped a photo.
Here's the plan and question for this weekend:
We'll be in Dulac area and can launch at T-Irv's and fish south towards Sister Lake area or Launch at bridge and fish Lake Boudreaux area.
We're looking for trout and/or reds. What would be your advise if you know of these areas?
I've usually struggled finding trout in the early spring - Is it more of hit-miss with 1-2 per point or is it weather condition driven?
Thanks guys for any pointers
3 of us are going tomorrow - place is undecided. We have ruled out Laffite - reports are bad water and I read about the fish kill.
The winds will pick up tomorrow (of course that's everytime we launch the boat. I was wondering what would be your plan if going tomorrow? do we drive south till we find cleaner water? do we use dead shrimp? do we even look for trout? will the dead ends be the best bet?
We'll probably launch around Dulac (T-irv's or Falgout area)
Thanks if you respond - and Geaux Saints...
even if we don't set the hook - 3 friends and a few bud lights will still be good
I've been reading these reports for years. We've been a hit & miss type of guys - Some trips great some horrible. When everyone is catching I can usually find fish - But when it's slow I struggle although I always come home to read about this guy catching a limit withing 5-10 miles of where I was fishing. So I'd like to educate my fishing skills further by perhaps taking a guided trip on areas I'll fish later.
What guide or guides will fit my preferences:
1. Dulac/Cocodrie (Sister Lake - Grand Calliou)
2. Good teacher (different areas - not neccessarily running to rigs and catching limit on 1 bait)
3. Allow me to drink a few beers while fishing
4. Be friendly and have fun
I would rather fish 6-8 areas and be taught what to look for and wind up short of a limit verses running to a point casting same bait till limit is reached.
I realize I don't post often - But I read regularly.
All the great reports have limits in the morning before my coffee has passed. Is anyone catching fish in the evening on the falling tides? I'm planning on possibly going tomorrow after lunch. Should you fish upcurrent or downcurrent of a falling tide. I usually fish the cuts on the beach from Grand Caillou to Pass Wilson.
I usually launch at T-Irvs - But it seems most of you launch at the end of 315. (what's the name of that launch)
It's great to see all of you guys catching trout again. Please send any helpful tips you can without giving away your best spots..

Just purchased a new Lowrance 332C. I'm waiting on the Mapcreate 7.0 version which was scheduled for early April now may be June. The base map is not what I want to count on. Most of my fishing is marsh fishing in Dularge area. If legalities permit, I'm looking to borrow or buy a SD card with the maps, oe start looking for other mapping options.
I have a very old version of Mapcreate (1.3) that was used with my handheld GlobalMap 100. But I'm unable to send map to anything but GPS on a COM Port. If someone has an answer for how to fake program to write to SD card instead of looking for GPS device I'd appreciate it.
