Saturday July 11th
I fished today with Moon and Steve Griffon, and Odon Simoneaux. The guys said they wanted to catch some Speckled Trout and maybe a few Redfish later in the day. We left Lafitte Harbor Marina at 6:30am and headed out to Barataria Bay area. When we reached the bay after a short 25 minute run, the winds were calm and the water was pretty and clear, I had a good feeling we would do well with the trout. On our first stop near Queen Bess Island , I put the trolling motor in and we started casting around the island with a H&H glow beetle and a 1/4oz jig head fishing tight line and the bite was on, we started catching Speckled Trout on a sunken reef just off the south end of the island, so I put my Cajun anchor down and we sat in that spot and caught 30 nice trout, until another boat came by and idled over the reef we were fishing and ran the fish off. I pulled up the anchor and trolled around till we started catching again, I poled down and we sat and caught 10 or so nice trout before the tide stopped on us. We made a move to another island near by and the bite was slow. I put a popping cork on and we started catching trout again, we picked up 20 nice trout in this spot before the bite quite. I moved around and tried a few other stops in the bay, but did not catch many more keepers before a thunderstorm ran us out the bay. We caught 61 nice Speckled Trout and ran to Little Lake area to find a few Redfish. But the tide had stopped on us and the wind picked up from the thunderstorms around and the bite was off. We managed to catch a nice keeper Redfish and a few undersize reds, before we ran in from the rain. We had a great day and I enjoyed fishing with Moon, Steve and Odon, and as always this was New Orleans Fishing At Its Best!
I want to thank Moon, Steve and Odon for booking with us at Cescent City Fishing Charters Inc. and I look forward to fishing with you guys in the future. I had a lot of fun fishing with a great group of guys and hope to see you again soon.
