Acting a donkey words of holy mackerel!!!

Our plan was to sleep in and drive home this morning. Well woke up and the wind was flat guess that changed out minds. With GPS me holy mackerel and Phillip made our way to the hunny hole and got there rite before the bite kicked off. By the way it was dark when we left lol. We had our 75 trout at 7:20 this morning of 75 trout. Well we made a decision to stay out a little while and yea the holy one went chase redfish. Got to our pond and the bait was showing us exactly where they were. But what's crazy is that trout over 19 inches were in 2ft of water as well with redfish. We had a couple double hookups in redfish and I hear John in the back of there boat ' these redfish acting a donkey out here'. Well at 1030 we decided we had enough and we ended up with 75 trout 9 redfish released another 15 or so and 6 bass. Tko shrimp and shrimp creole matrix under a cork and on bottom worked best in oak river for trout as under a cork in the ponds for redfish and bass.

Acting a Donkey

I've mellowed some over the years, once the guys catch a limit of Trout I tell them they can fish for whatever they want. BUT I did have a hidden agenda, I already knew there were big Trout roaming the same flat even with 53 degree and 2 feet or less of water. Should've seen Scott's face when a 20' Trout came out head shaking. The StOoOpiD r-fish they were catching were fun to watch, Scott and Philip were smoking them. They were definitely acting a donkey, r-fish busting up some bait in shallow water.

I have to interject one major point, one which most who fish Delacroix a lot (including Scott) understand. For a Trout purist like me, after catching a limit of Trout those hours are much better spent scouting places we don't fish. We spend countless hours running and pouring over maps and Delacroix is truly overwhelming. There are MANY areas from the back levee canal to Black Bay that hold Trout we don't fish, some of those Trout don't see boats. Catching Trout is easy once you find them but my favorite thing is finding them in an area where I've never fished and where no one has told me to fish. I love my scouting trips and that is something I know we have to and will continue to do.

    I think the cheese done slid off your cracker Scott, I was walking the dog for Trout not those big dummy, StOoOpiD r-fish ya'll were catching. As for those captains in the west, I never got me no invite to no DO LARGE! I bet they can find them no limits of no Trout so now they want to come take ours, shoot too! Joking aside, I enjoyed fishing with you guys when you were here, definitely looking forward to doing it again.
