|Fall’N for specks
November 19, 2012 at 9:00 am
The specks are coming, the specks are coming! That jubilant cry can be heard from ’yakers all across coastal Louisiana. Fall is here, and hungry trout are filling the interior marshes where they’ll be easily accessible to kayak anglers for the next several months.
|Amberjack, blackfin tuna thick out of Cypremort Point
September 19, 2012 at 10:51 am
Catching amberjack and a deck full of blackfin tuna always makes for a successful meat haul to the outskirts of the continental shelf.
Loading up on those blackfin is usually a breeze, but getting down to monster AJs and grouper, skipping over pesky out-of-season red snapper, is what any serious angler wants to do during his September bottom-fishing time.
|Vermilion Bay gives up 7-pound trout
August 10, 2012 at 7:00 am
Trout are beginning to move off of the coast and back into the marsh and inland bays, making it the perfect time to head into Vermilion Bay. In fact, 70-year-old Ray Hargrave, a lifetime recreational fisherman, recently caught his biggest speckled trout after fishing the bay.
"I thought that it was a redfish at first because she (the trout) pulled down and never surfaced. I knew it was something big though, so I didn't horse it too much with my 12-pound test,” Hargrave said. “I like to use light line so that I can really feel that ‘thump-thump’ when it hits. It really wasn’t a tough fight. She finally surfaced and just swam straight into the net.”

Holy mackerel! The influx of salty Gulf water from Tropical Storm Debby has resulted in hot nearshore action on large Spanish and king mackerel. Fly-rodders are having one of the best summers in years for both species.

Everywhere I go, I seem to bump into Casey McLaurin, director of operations for Acadiana Outfitters, a high-end specialty outdoor retailer located on the outskirts of New Iberia. Casey loves to fish for speckled trout and he loves to duck hunt, so our talk always turns to one of the two subjects.
He is only 34 years old, young for so much responsibility, but I listen to him carefully.

Making a clean sweep seems to always make things feel a little fresher.
And sweeping up a mess of redfish, flounder, black drum and speckled trout at a spot near Weeks Bay called the “Trash Pile” is a good way to do a little housekeeping this summer.
Someone who knows a thing or two about housekeeping is Eddie Darce. Darce and his wife Cindy are co-owners of “Cuddin Eddie’s Pepper Relish Products,” where cleaning up following a long day of cooking is the norm.

Meet Capt. Steve Smith.

A drip of sweat somehow traveled along the Neanderthalic eyebrow-hidden bumps of my forehead and passed down the lens of my cheater eyeglasses. The sweat stung my eye, blurred my vision and complicated my efforts to thread some monofilament through the eye of a 3/8-ounce jighead.

Gold is where you find it.

We were making good time cutting through 2- to 3-foot seas in West Cote Blanche Bay, but on the horizon, as far as you could see out in the Gulf, was an ominous slate-blue sky, which meant only one thing: We were going to get wet — real wet — possibly before we reached our destination.

Louisiana speckled trout fishermen are a dedicated bunch, for the most part fishing year round. But May seems to be a special month, heralding the onset of summer and its hot speck fishing.
