The Louisiana Fishing Guides at Hook Dat Fishing Charters have been hitting the speckled trout, redfish and snapper hard. The fishing has been excellent now that we have gotten past the recent tropical storm and cold front that passed through our region. We have been finding large speckled trout in and around some rigs. Drop shot live shrimp combined with 1/2 oz jig head and matrix shad have been producing the larger trout bite and hitting oyster reefs on a carolina rig with live shrimp and matrix shad have been producing some big numbers of trout. We have been catching over 100+ trout a day with about 1/2 of them just under the 12" size limit. But mixed in are some nice slabs allowing us to fill the coolers up with some nice specks.
Redfishing during peak tidal movement from about 9 AM to 11 AM has been producing great slot limit reds to top of the morning catches.
We had some really nice weather this past weekend allowing us to get out to the deeper water rigs and get on some great red snapper fishing. Catching limits of red snapper is pretty easy right now, just got to find the right rig and the right depth and the snapper fishing is fast and furious.
Fishing in southeast Louisiana near Shell Beach has been excellent and we're ready for another great week of fishing! Come get you some!
