Hello Again Cyber Anglers,
This past week was tough but do able. Getting out to the islands was tough considering the wind but when it started coming out of the north I headed straight for Deep Bayou. There you can find some clean protected water especially on a North or East wind. The red camp, the cuts, the rocks, and the points of the Cut Thru, pipeline, and Grand Bayou Blue on the east banks were producing nice messes of Trout on the high water leading up to the peak of high tide in the early afternoons. Live Bait continues to work well both rigged under a cork and Carolina rigged. Category Five Suicide Croaker and She Dog were the top catching artificial Baits. Deep Bayou is also great when the wind is blowing because no matter how dirty the water gets at the surface, the deep water always stays clean and cool below the surface. A quick look at sonar marked fish 4 feet and down when the surface got dirty. On cloudy days the bite slowed later in the morning and happened right before dark in the afternoon. The wind battled the incoming tide early in the week but once the coastal flood warning was issued when the wind started humping from the east, high water was the order of the day. Weekend anglers are bummed as the last 3 weekends it has been blowing.

In the meantime good luck fishing….Capt. Bob
P.S. I spoke to Linwood Stilly, the King of Fornation, yesterday and he is still in the hospital improving. He wanted me to thank everyone that offer prayers on his behalf. He had a couple of serious moments but is now on the road to recovery. “I’ll be back after those big Trout as soon as I can,” he insured me as he sounded in good spirits.
