Marty Lacoste of Absolute Fishing Charters reported on May 19 that the fishing has been extremely good in the Dularge area.
“The trout fishing has been off the charts on days with calmer winds,” he said. “Tight-lining double-rigged Matrix Shad in various colors — green hornet, ultraviolet, avocado, shrimp creole, glow — has been producing limits to near-limits.”
Lacoste also saw fishermen in other boats catching trout with live shrimp fished under Four Horsemen Corks.
“The forecast is looking good for next week,” said Lacoste, who had to cancel a few trips due to bad weather, “and we are looking to get back to good catches again.”
Although Lacoste said that he hasn’t been fishing reds much lately, he reported that other guides are still catching them.
“For redfish, use gold spoons and Matrix lures tight-lined,” Lacoste said.
If you prefer to use bait, “always use fresh bait-shrimp under corks,” he said.
After a couple of weeks of battling the wind and rain, it is nice to see clients catch limits of speckled trout. “It’s been good,” Lacoste said.
