The particular area that produced all these limits of speckled trout for Capt. James Wilson is a part of the Clovelly Oil Field. The canal that comes out in the middle of Little Lake is a part of it, but the other part, where we fished, is the south end by Brusle.

After the first cool front of the season, the redfish bite remains consistent in the Biloxi Marsh, but conditions are setting up right for speckled trout to begin making a more definitive push inside coastal marshes and bays, according to a fishing guide.

|Target best weather days to up fishing odds for trout and reds in Hopedale, Delacroix
2673 Views - Posted: February 22 at 6:30 am
The fishing around Hopedale has been a little spotty lately, and the stormy weather has not helped out much. Specks and reds have been landed sparingly in the lakes and marshes surrounding Hopedale and Delacroix on warmer, calmer days.
But even then it’ not a sit-in-one-spot-and-load-the-boat kind of thing.
| Fishing for Delacroix winter specks heats up

With this past cold front the speckled trout have begun to settle in deep holes of the lakes, bayous and canals around Delacroix, demanding a slightly different method of presenting baits. Anglers just have to be smarter than the fish they are catching and utilize their depth finders and fishing instincts.
|Trout biting under birds at mouth of Lafitte’s Clovelly Canals

My son Boudreauxed James Wilson and Lane Zimmer on his fifth cast of the morning.
Fortunately, the two captains with Phil Robichaux Fishing Charters (504-689-2006) had already put 10 trout in the boat.
He wasn’t really to blame, though. The trout were biting so quickly that he got excited and threw right over both their lines.
|Wintertime is no time to sit at home, Lafitte fishing guide says

As is the norm across South Louisiana, fishing tends to slow down in Lafitte when the weather turns cooler. But Capt. Mike Daigle knows there are fish to be caught throughout the area for anglers who aren’t frightened by cooler climes.
Daigle spent most of what was a mild October catching specks in The Pen, Little Lake, Mud Lake and the Bruxelles area. At the same time, Lake Salvador was “chock full” of redfish, Daigle said. On a recent trip with two other anglers to Mud Lake, they boated 300 specks by 9 a.m., and only four of them were throwbacks.
|Transitional haul: Never miss a lick as trout begin the annual inshore migration
1491 Views - Posted: September 01, 2012 at 7:00 am
September can pose some real challenges for trout fishermen. First, we have weather to contend with and, while that is true in any month, September is the peak of our tropical season — which brings winds and seas to a whole different level.
Even when we don’t get nailed head-on by tropical systems, the very presence of one anywhere in the Gulf destabilizes the weather and makes for very windy and rough conditions for a week or more at a time.
Then, there’s the “transition” thing speckled trout go through. It’s like trout menopause.

The last time I had a fishing pole in my hand O.J. Simpson was only known for his prowess on the football field, the only reality show on TV was "Cops" and Justin Bieber wasn’t even a twinkle in his dad’s eye.
That changed yesterday (July 3).
