The Louisiana Fishing Guides at Hook Dat Fishing Charters have been experiencing some pretty good fishing considering the late cold front that passed through following tropical strom cristobol. Tyipcally after a tropical storm or hurricane fishing is off the charts good, but the cold front that dropped in just after the tropical storm passed through threw us for a loop. We had to deal with strong winds that turned the water up into a dirty mess which makes it difficult to find and pattern fish. Combine that with cooler than normal temperatures, it made for some challenging fishing conditions.
With that being said we spent a lot of time scouting and finding the cleanest water we could find. Once we found areas that were cleaning up pretty good we found good speckle trout fishing. If the speckle trout were not cooperating we went after redfish, sheepshead, black drum and even some bass.
As soon as the wind switched out of the east, the water started cleaning up good and the speckled trout fishing got hot! By the end of the week, we were filling the coolers up with limits of speckled trout and adding some nice limits of redfish to go along with it.
Get out and find that clean water and it will pay off!
