Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Rainbow over Northwest island, Lake Racourrci
Leeville & Grandisle Report
Wednesday 07/04/12.. Fished Lake Raccourci around N.W. Isl. & Platforms using Live minnows & soft plastics. The tide seemed to be slow moving coming in and ended earlier than expected. However the thunderstorms were early arriving which cut our fishing short trying to dodge them. We ended the day with 25 nice trout.
Thursday 07/05/12.. we fished same area again with the same results as wednesday. However I did have something happen that I never seen before. My wife was fishing live minnow carolina rigged & I was using a top water. Wife gets a fish on and starts bringing it in. About that time a Speck hits my topwater. As I get my fish to the boat I noticed my wife's line coming toward me also. As I land my Speck I noticed my wife's minnow and Kahl hook was in my Speck's mouth along with my top water bait. Yep after hitting my wife's minnow the same fish came up and hit my topwater. My wife corrected me and claimed that it was her speck because it hit her bait first.
Wife = Always right.
Friday we put in at Fourchon to fish the beach for a couple hours before heading home. We fished from the sunken barges all the way down to Elmer's Isl. We ended up with 15 trout and a few white trout.
Numbers were not up like I was hoping for but the size were nice and we had a great trip.
