Good Fishing Despite the High Winds

Good fishing out of the Delacroix marsh in spite of the high winds. The tree tops whipping made it an easy call to avoid the big water this morning. My guests agreed and it was off to search the inner and middle bays and bayous for specks and reds. We were armed with live cocahoes and artificial cocahoes. Our first stop yielded a good mess of trout on the live cocahoes fished carolina rigged on the bottom. Our second stop was where an inner lake empties into Oak River. The specks were smaller, but both artificial and live produced eqaully well on the bottom. We hit a couple of other places along Oak River and each produced some trout, but no mother load. Our last spot was the best, yielding trout, a red and a flounder. All fish were caught on the bottom in 12-20 feet of water. The tide was incoming and the water inside is raelly nice right now. The early week looks good with the latter week looking hot with chances for rain. Good luck out there this week!
