Inshore Fishing in Shell Beach / Hopedale / Reggio in Southeast Louisiana
07/01/2012 Hopedale Report
It's been awhile since I had fished hopedale so when I decided to go Sunday I was more than excited. 90% of the time last year, hopedale is where I mainly fished out of. When I do decide to become a guide I plan on fishing out of hopedale.
Nick, Ryan, Mike, and I got a early start and launched out of Breton Sound marina before the sun came up. I had gotten a couple tips from a guide out there so that was the game plan. We arrived to the rig he suggested we fished at and the action was real slow. After catching 3 or 4 trout there, we decided to try another spot that was suggested to me. We caught a couple spanish mackerel but nothing else besides ladyfish.
I told the crew I had enough of trying other peoples spots and decided we should go to where I caught my fish all last summer. Good decision! All it took was the first 2 of my spots to fill up the box and we were headed home.
The crew was very happy and want to do it again. We caught all of our fish on live shrimp and tko's under a cork
