Hook Dat Fishing Charters Louisiana Fishing Report - May 9, 2021

The fishing has been phenomenal the last 2 weeks. We have been consistently catching limits of some of the biggest speckled trout we have seen in years. These trout are fat! We still do not have to travel far to find them. With the influx of saltwater in the marsh due to the persistent easterly winds, has kept the trout in close to the marsh. Finding a good tide with diving birds nearby combined with clean salty water will put you on a good trout bite. We had several days where porpoises were circling the boat while fishing. In many cases when porpoises move in, they tend to run the fish off but that was not the case this past week. We were still catching big trout with porpoises circling the boats. We are catching trout in that 13 - 20 inch range with several in the 21 - 24 inch range. The redfish bite has also picked up and we are catching more flouder this year than we have in several years. With the exception of a few rainy windy days, the fishing has been excellent. We have been putting together 3-5 man limits of speckled trout pretty regularly with some nice redfish, sheepshead, and flounder. The best bite has been on live shrimp with Four Horseman popping cork. On the windy days, we have been catching some big trout bouncing live shrimp off the bottom and lemon head matrix shad.  The heavy rain the last few days has muddied up the waters and made the trout bite slack off a little but as this rain and wind move out, the waters should clean up and the trout back should get strong again.
