Delacroix Report – 3/14/2020

The trout really came on strong today. We bounced around a bit this morning as we hit several tried and true March hot spots. We had some success as the incoming tide got stronger, but the South East winds also got stronger too. We found a spot that I have not fished in 5 years that is perfect for a SE wind and a rising tide in March. We set up on the edge of a 12 foot drop off and cast artificial cocahoes on 3/8 ounce jig heads into the deep. We also tried dead shrimp carolina rigged. The dead shrimp helped to pick up several black drum in the 16-18″ class and one 50+ lb bruiser that we brought in on 12 lb test line and released to destroy someone else’s fishing equipment. The artificial lures were effective in loading up on speckled trout in the 12-14″ class. The bite was funny, but once we figured it out, it was every cast. The fishing is really taking off in the Delacroix Marsh and we are very happy about that welcome change. Good luck out there this week!

Delacroix Report – 3/7/2020

It was cold and windy this morning out of the Delacroix Marsh. The water was low and dirty most of the areas we fished. We were able to find some protected areas that offered some relief from the cold winds and had decent water conditions. We fished deep drop offs with a strong rising tide. We tried dead shrimp carolina rigged and on jig heads to catch sheepshead. Artificial cocahoes on 3/8 ounce jig heads were the lure of choice to pickup a surprising number of trout. The trout were in the 14-17″ class with no throwbacks. The trout wanted the lure slow rolled on the bottom with very little twitching. It was good to see the trout numbers and the quality. Looking forward to the next trip. Good luck out there!

Good Fishing Continues

Good fishing continues out of the Delacroix marsh. The big trout action out at the rigs has slowed as of late. The fish are still around, but the weather pattern has not been condusive for spending alot of time in Breton Sound. The smaller trout have been ganged up under the birds in Black Bay. The fish are taking artificial lures in any color. The throwback ratio has been around 8-1. Fun to catch, but not rewarding at the fish cleaning table. The weather of late has us working the protected waters where the outer bays are just plain lousy with redfish. Easy limits of nice reds 18-24″. The fish are taking live shrimp or dead shrimp 2-3′ under corks. Artificial lures have also been very effective. The best are gold spoons, and cocahoes in alvacado and purple w/chartreuse tail. Good luck out there this week!
