Stayed Inside and Caught Plenty Of Fish
<p>Windy day out of Delacroix this morning. Brisk NE winds had white caps on the inside lakes. My guests were not ready to take a beating so we decided to stay inside. I hit the inside lakes and worked the edges of deep holes. This paid off with quality catches of trout, flounder and redfish. The trout were 13-18", flounder up to 4 lbs and reds up to 10 lbs. The fish wanted live cocahoes carolina rigged and on 3/8 ounce jigheads. We caught a few under corks, but the majority came on the bottom. I used artificial cocahoes in the smoke with red tail color to pick up trout and flounder. The fish were not aggressive at all. The same slow winter time twitch was the ticket to steady action. The water was clear early, but cloudied up as the incoming tide at 2.2 feet brought that dirty outside water in. This slowed the fish action, but did not kill it. The fish are still inside, if it is too rough to get out you have a fall back plan. Good luck out there this weekend!
