Delacroix Report – 7/30/2016

Perfect fishing weather for a usually hot summer. We got out early to the edge of Breton Sound and set up on an outer point. We had good incoming tide and light winds out of the Southwest. The speckled trout were hungry and we started filling the box on the first cast. The fish were smaller than usual 12-14″ and we had to throw a lot of small trout back this morning. The fish were hungry for live shrimp Carolina rigged on the bottom and they ate up artificial cocahoes on 3/8 ounce jigheads. We continued to wade threw smalls to get a good box full and we decided to switch gears and head toward the Delacroix marsh for some redfish. We worked a windward bank that is lined with oysters and picked up a bunch of reds in the 20-24″ class. These fish wanted live shrimp 2 feet under a cork very close to the bank. We ended the day early and took it back to the boat slip before the rains started to build up around us. Good luck out there this week!
