Excellent fishing for trout out of the Delacroix marsh. A little breezy, but good tidal movement combined with the wind surge made the fish stack up in the interior bayous and passes. We found quality fish suspended 1-2 feet off the bottom in 10-12 feet of water. We caught trout, reds, sheepshead, bass and flounder on live shrimp carolina rigged. We also picked up fish on artificial jigs in alvacado/red tail, 1/4 and 3/8 ounce heads.These fish wanted the lure presented cross current at first with a slow reel/twitch. As the wind shifted more southerly, the fish wanted the hook tightlined down current. The fish are setting up in the winter time holes. The fish are not right on the bottom, they are suspended up a foot or more up the slope. Look for your action near interior bayous between two lakes or passes between lakes. The fish should be on one end or the other tide depending. A front looks to push through Tuesday/Wednesday which should lower the water temperature even more. Winter time fishing at its best! Good luck out there this week.
