Tough fishing conditions in the Delacroix marsh today. My guests were greeted with rain right away this morning which kept us in the boat slip for a while. A break to the east allowed us to punch through and get some inside fishing in. We worked deep bayous for trout and reds with artificial and live cocahoes. No limits, but nice fish. Artificial held an advantage over the live on the 13-19″ class trout. The fish were staging at the mouths of cuts and lakes with a deepwater bayou running through. The trout and reds wanted the baits slow rolled or twitched on the bottom in 15 feet of water. The hot color was alvacado on a 3/8 ounce jighead. The tide was falling despite the strong SE winds. The tide slacked around 11 AM and the action stopped. We tried running to the moving tide, but with rain blowing up around, we decided to call it a day early. We pulled into the slip just as the rain started. Perfect timing! The weather looks iffy with the approching front. There may be a window in the morning which we will shoot for and try to get some fishing in before the bottom drops out. Good luck out there this weekend.
