Quick trip to Dulac from Lafayette produced nice mess of fish. The trout and reds are in the marsh and hungry for plastic !
Dulac, , 12 05 18
Dead end canal
This is why I love Dulac !!!!!
No lies were told in the creation of this photo !!!!
The guys from Texas and Lafayette did not get many bites but most of the bites were reds over 20 lbs.
The trout are in the main bayous and canals. Biting on plastic along with gaftops and sharks !
Check out this video of trout fishing in Dulac last Wednesday.

On Saturday I caught a redfish with a CCA Star tag. The tag appeared to be very old but I could still read the tag # (LA 393). Is there a way to tell when and where this red was tagged. I would like to know how big it was and how far it traveled.
Yesterday in spite of 53 degree water temp the reds were hitting gold spoons in 12 inches of water. After catching a couple of limits and a few catch and release we also caught a few nice trout in deeper water on tight line plastic. Reds were caught near Bayou Colyell and trout in deeper canals near off Grand Calliou.
The trout are scattered everywhere in the marsh off of Grand Calliou. Cleaned 50 from 2 days of fishing last week. The redfishing still a little slow.
Heading out to Dulac tommorrow for a few days to try and locate some trout (I know the reds are bitting) but haven't caught trout in a while. Any hints or recent reports would be appreciated. I will be glad to share my reports daily. Don't need secret spots, just patterns will do (inside, outside, depth of water or general area. Thanks in advance. Good luck to all!!!!!!!
Anybody have any idea why Last Island is still closed to fishing.
Why was Grande Isle reopened for fishing and points west remained closed? A few tar balls on Last Isle? I don't think so!!!
My guess is that the folks who have camps and live on Grand Isle have more clout than those in Dulac or Dularge.
The whole La. coast may eventually be closed, but for now let people fish and the commercial fishermen make a living. This is about control and politics. Just like Katrina when the boaters from Lafayette went to help and were turned away. LWFD wanted to show who was in control!!!!
Going to try close in rigs out of Freshwater Bayou on Sat. Any advice or reports would be appreciated. Normally fish Dulac and willing to share recent reports from that area.

The redfish activity has definitely picked up. Caught a limit on Saturday after the rain storm and another limit Sunday morning before 10 AM. The fish were spooky and in a little grass so I used a Gold spoon and made long casts at the wakes.
No need to travel far or fish were it is posted. Just go into one on the hundreds of ponds off of Grand Caillou and go in as far as your boat will go. Look for the "push".
Good Luck fishing, there are plenty for everyone!
Pictured here is Mark and Mark Jr. on Mark Jr.'s first redfishing trip. Mark got practice in reeling in redfish and he neted the 12 lb fish. All caught on black and chartuse H&H cocoho.
Redfsih bite in the ponds a little slow but all big fish (10 to 13 lbs) so only kept 3. Saw a few fish backs to throw at, but not like fall fishing.
Doesn't get much better than this! 2 man limit of trout by 8:30 close to camp. Redfish limits by 1 PM in shallow clear water!
