Delacroix Report – 4/12/2021

It was on yesterday in the Delacroix marsh. The fishing action was non stop for all species. Nice speckled trout in the 14-20″ class hit the ice chest all morning. These fish wanted live shrimp carolina rigged and artificial cocahoes. We had a battery issue and got a jump from Captain Ricky Hunt – Thanks Captain, you saved me! It is nice to fish in a place where folks are friendly and willing to lend a hand. I know I have helped a many of stranded boaters and glad that the help was available when I was in need. Instead of quitting early, we headed beck to the dock to retrieve a spare battery and headed back out in search of reds. We found a point with moving water and plenty of bait and finished up a limit of nice reds in the 16-27″ class. We caught a bull red 35″, but released to fight another day. We also spent 30 minutes tangling with a 45 lb. black drum that was also set free to rule the water. It was a great day in spite of some technical issues. Best trip of the year! Good luck out there!
