Sunday July 12th
Today I fished with an ole friend and client Joey and his two friends Jarred and Dale. For some time now Joey and I have been working on booking a trip to where he could get his little friend Jarred who is 12 years old and his good friend Dale out on the water for some Speckled Trout and Redfish action, well today was the day!
We left the dock at Lafitte Harbor Marina around 6:00am and headed out for Barataria Bay area, the wheather looked pretty good for a good trout day, with the winds light out of the northeast and the water fairly calm. When we arrived at our first spot in the bay, we were the only boat in sight of the island we tried to fish the day before. I put the trolling motor over and we started casting H&H glow beetles over a shell reef that extends south of the island for a 100 yards or so. We started catching almost right away, so I put my Cajun anchor down and we caught 55 to 60 nice Speckled Trout until the tide slacked on us and the bite slowed to nothing. We only a very small tide range and it did not last but an hour or so and when the tide slacks, so will the bite on trout. I decided to move north to another island and try what we did the day before, I put a popping cork on and sure enough the bite was on like the day before. We caught many throw back trout under 12 inches, but did manage to catch a few nice keepers to add to the fish box. When the tide caught up to us and slacked, we took off into the shallow marsh to look for Redfish. Jarred said he wanted to catch a big Redfish, so I put the trolling motor over and we went back into a small shallow pocket where I have been seeing some Redfish tailing from time to time, and they were there. After a few cast Jarred had his hands full with a very nice Redfish pulling his line. We boated 10 really nice Redfish for a grand total of 72 Speckled Trout and 10 Redfish. This is New Orleans Fishing At Its Best!
