Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Time with family and friends
I've been pretty busy this summer so I've taken this weekend off to spend some time with family and close friends down in Dularge. Came down yesterday afternoon to the camp and my buddy Blake and I took our girls out for a VERY quick trip. I was hoping to get my girl on her first keeper red. Mission accomplished! I hooked the fish on a baby -1 but handed the pole over to my 4 yr old. She did great. The fish didn't fight too hard until it saw the boat and made a run almost pulling the pole out of her hand (luckily I had my hand on the pole). As soon as she caught the red she quickly turned her attention to her friend Briley and jumping around the boat and playing with the bait shrimp. This morning Blake and I launched around 6. Capt. E jumped onboard because he had a last minute cancellation. The plan was to stay inshore and check out some new bass and red areas. We also were in search of new area to fish in the fall and winter. First stopped produced 25 keepers and probably 50 throwbacks. A complete surprise but for those that can't get offshore just know that there are some keeper trout inside. Double rig Cocodrie cocohoes and sparkle Beatles were the ticket. We could've stayed and caught more but the goal was to find new area and we didn't want to fish all day so off went. We hit some bass areas but they were a lot of lillies.We decided to go in search of new area so we spent most of the morning riding around finding some deeper holes deep in the marsh that will be money during the winter. On our way in we stopped back at the first stop and picked up a red as lagniappe. Blake and I are jumping on Catchdat in the morning. No scouting tomorrow, going to hammer them :-) Good luck everyone!
