Excellent fishing in the Delacroix marsh. The fish are in a solid winter time pattern and easy limits are within a short ride from the dock. The trout are nice size 14-18″ and are readily eating up artificial baits. We used plastic cocahoes on 1/4 ounce jigheads for our fish. The hot colors were black/chartreuse tail, tuxedo and bronze/red flake. We worked the edge of a deep interior lake hole. The fish were suspended a few feet off of the bottom early. The trout were aggressively striking the lure on the initial fall or after a twitch up off the bottom. Quick limits of trout and then the search for reds and flounder was on. Everywhere we stopped, the trout were working us over. They seem to be all over the marsh. Pick a winter time hole and work the ledge with plastics or live bait for your specks.The reds and flounder were working in shallow coves on the edge of the marsh. These fish wanted the same artificial baits worked with a steady twitching retreive. We also picked up a nice 2 lb. bass while working the reds. The trout seemed to move up in the water column as the day heated up, so do not forget the upper column if you fish mid day into afternoon. Ducks are all over the marsh as well. It looks like the last front and the lack of hunting pressure has really moved the birds in. Beware of the gnats! They have made a showing in a big way. The weather looks good for the rest of the week into the weekend. It will be cold, so bundle up and enjoy the great fishing that Louisiana has to offer. Good luck out there this week and weekend!
