<p>Beautiful day out of Delacroix this AM. We really needed a weather change! East winds around 10 K with partly cloudy skies, perfect. An eerie fog blanketed the edge of the marsh on the way out. We stopped short to fish a small island and found what we were looking for, fat speckled trout. The fish were 13-19" and wanted live shrimp under a cork and artificial cocahoes in any color on 1/4 ounce jigheads. Once again the artificial outfished the live shrimp. The water was stained at first, but got progressively dirtier as the incoming tide brought the Bay water in. As the water got dirtier, the action faded, but we got a couple of hours of steady catching in. We decided to head in toward cleaner water and some redfish holes. We picked up a nice mess with a couple of bonus flounders. The redfish were 16-22" and wanted live shrimp carolina rigged and artificial cocahoes on a 3/8 ounce jighead. The action is really heating up out of Delacroix. Good luck out there Sunday!
