Delacroix Report - Great Fishing In Breton Sound
<p>What a great weekend for fishing! Light winds and warm, but the low humidity made it pleasant. Saturday was a trout day for my guests so we headed into the sound. Armed with an array of artificails and live shrimp and croakers. We well and reef hopped picking up a few big trout at each spot, but could not get them going. These fish wanted the artificial cocachoes and the live shrimp carolina rigged. The tide slowed and we decided to head to the edges for redfish. Headed West, we approached another submerged reef and we had to give the trout one more chance! These trout were smaller, but they would not let us leave. These fish wanted the same baits and were very aggressive. Last spot saves the day! Sunday, my guests wanted redfish. Ran long to the South and worked broken marshes and windward coves and were rewarded with bronze brutes up to 28". These fish wanted live shrimp 2' under corks and artificial cocahoes with a moderate retrieve. We also picked up a mess of trout and several flounders. The wind had picked up out of the SE and the water color started to dirty up. My guests had to catch an early flight so we headed in early. A great weekend of fishing action out of Delacroix. This week has outstanding tidal ranges and the current forecast looks good. Good luck out there this week!
PS. What was up with the 4 door truck in Bayou Terre Aux Bouefs at the end of Serignes ramp?
