Delacroix Report – 7/9/2016

The speckled trout bite is still on! My guests were treated to a fantastic morning of trout catching. The winds were gentle out of the Southwest and the water was very low, but the fish were hungry. We hit a spot that had good incoming tidal movement and bait fish and shrimp jumping out of the water all around us. The action was fast and furious from the first cast. The trout were in the 13-18″ class with a good bit of too small throwbacks. The action faded as the tide slowed to a trickle and we headed to the dock early with an ice chest full. The fish wanted live shrimp Carolina rigged and artificial cocahoes on jigheads. The artificial out fished the live today by a long shot. The catching action should continue this week, but the weather may not cooperate with elevated rain chances all week. Good luck out there!
