Hungry trout

Mendeville, Louisiana - Saltwater Fishing Report
Breton Sound

Another glorious day in Breton Sound. A light chop early with increasing winds out of the West. The water was clean even with the west wind. We hit yesterdays hotspot well right off and got into a steady bite on 2-4 lb speckled trout. The fish still wanted the artificial cocahoe slow twitched a couple of feet off the bottom. Live shrimp or croakers early, equalled a hardhead or gafftop catfish. Mid morning, the wind and tide slacked off and so did our party. We tried live croakers 6' under a cork and worked another dozen into the box before it was over. Hit a couple of red holes on the way in and picked up a few reds for the grill. These fish wanted live or dead shrimp 2-3' under corks. Sunday looks like the best day in the next few with light winds and an increasing tide. Good luck out there!
