<p>Got lucky with an early morning weather window before ther storms rolled in Saturday. Took advantage of it and headed out early, but stayed in protected water. The weatherman said look for the front between 8 AM and 2 PM. It was closer to 2 PM when it started raining, but we were back at the dock long before then. The fishing was good, but the tide was strange. It was falling hard till midmorning then a long turnaround and the tide rose for a couple of hours before starting to fall again. We set up on a flat adjacent to a deep pass. We worked the pass and the drop off with artificial cocahoes picking up speckled trout, redfish and flounder. When the tide started rising, we worked the adjacent flat for the same species. The trout were up to 3 lbs, but most in the 14-16" class. The reds were up to 27" and some nice medium sized flounders rounded out the box. I love to catch and eat those flat fish! The fishing is really good in the Delacroix area right now. Good luck out there!
