Left the dock yesterday at 3 and got back at 6:30 with 33 pretty trout. Going again tomorrow. All on chartruese plastic under a cork.
Very cool to limit out on specks and reds saturday morning in Lafitte. Fall patterns are beginning to show.
Nice day yesterday for the first trip on my brother's new boat. It does indeed catch fish.
Had a productive 3 days of fishing. Finished with the wife and 17 pretty trout. Happy Easter oops, I mean happy spring festival!
Nice trout again today. Of the 28 today, about 15 were females and 1 had roe! It is starting to happen! Going after them again tomorrow and then after redfish on Saturday.
Caught 80 or so pretty trout near Barataria Bay yesterday. Kept our 2 man limit and tossed the others back. We had very few undersized fish. Looks like the season is on! We fished pretty hard in 4 or 5 places for about 6 or 7 hrs and found fish at every place. Fish caught mostly on a slow roll using matrix lemon drop and chartruese cockaho on a 1/4 oz yellow head.
We had a fantastic day on the water in Lafitte on Wednesday. Capt. Scott Poche took us fishing and despite windy conditions, put us on trout all morning long. Capt. Scott is a knowledgable and expert fisherman as well as a nice guy. He showed us step by step of what he was looking for and why fish would conentrate at certain areas. He pointed out differences in the way the water looks and moves as well as his incredible knowledge of the land and reefs that are no longer visable but hold fish. It is one thing to read an article. Quite another to be shown with your own eyes. We were amazed that we were able to spot the conditions that were right for fish and then catch them. We fish out of laftte often and do pretty well but learned more in one day with him than in two seasons by ourselves. If you are a seasoned angler or a beginner, I recommend booking a trip with Capt. Scott. www.lafittefishing.com 504-915-0392
Thanks Captain Scott!
Went back of Dupont late yesterday. Arrived at the spot around 6p. Caught 9 big reds and released another 3. This morning, tried to get out to the bay for some trout but no way! Went west and caught our limit in bay L'ours. Six 20-22 inchers and 4 24 to 26 inchers. Released several big ones. All caught on balck/chartrues gold spinner and Mid 1 black and chartrues and silver and blue. Thanks Capt. Merdoc!
Tough day overall out there today. However, the first four fish in the boat came in perfect order. Red, drum, trout and flounder. I read about this on a post last week and only imagined the circumstances for it to happen. Now I have a great memory. It can be done!
I hear thru rumor that crab fishing is closed in some areas down river. The number of traps in lafitte is sickening. In particular, the pen and bayou dupont are covered up completely. It won't be long before crabs are fished out. Any ideas on this subject?
Great time on the water today with my buddy Drew. He is pictured with a few nice trout caught in little lake. Fish caught on H & H black w/chartruese tail and chartruese w/red tail under cork.
