The weather finally got us this morning and forced my guests to cancel at 4 AM. That is a shame because the fishing has been pretty steady the last few days out of the Delacroix marsh. We have been catching nice size trout at the rigs and wellheads in Breton Sound. The fish have been moving around from day to day with the same spots not producing consecutively. The water on the outside is dirty and fresh on top, but salty below. The trout have been in the 18-22″ class and have wanted live shrimp and artificials on the bottom. The live shrimp have been doing best on a jighead instead of the carolina rig. The hot color for the plastics has been a smoke w/red tail. Most of the trout have been picked up working the down current side of the structure. The redfish are still working the points and cuts in the outer bays. The best action has come on the rising tide. The reds have been in the 18-24″ class with an occasional bull up to 25lbs. The fish have wanted live or dead shrimp 24-36″ under a cork. This action can be as hot as the weather! This week, it looks like we may get a break from the heat as a small front brings some drier air to the area. This will be a welcome relief! Good luck out there this week.
