I don't think Blackbear and I knew what we wanted to do today. We started out catching a few trout but they were small. Next was to the super secret red fish spot and we started sight casting the reds. We even put a couple dozen crabs in the bucket for supper. After putting a couple of reds in the box and tagging a few more we decided to go looking for the larger trout and boy did we find them. Started catching with the cocodrie Cocahoe and the Big Eye but noticed a lot of trout hitting the surface so Blackbear broke out the top water baits and started putting big trout in the box. I continued with the Big Eye and we were stacking them in the box until another boat came and dropped anchor about 50 feet from us. I had to ask them to stop the motor because they were going to come all the way in with the 2 stroke smoker. We didn't put another fish in the box right there. We moved about a half mile and hit the right spot. Not fast but all of the trout were nice 16 to 18 inch fish and most of all were caught on the new HLT Swimmer Jr in Purple Haze. This new Purple bait also has Purple and Gold glitter in it and that is what set it apart from the rest. It was a nice treat to come home and boil some crabs. There were so many crabs there we could just dip them, and if the net would have had small holes we could have dipped shrimp also cause they were like rain in front of the troll motor. What a great day, trout, reds, and crabs n the box. No where but South Louisiana. For your day catching trout and reds call Capt. Tommy Pellegrin 985-851-3304.
