Launched out of Four Point Landing in Dulac at 5:30 this morning and bought 20 cocahoe minnows (just in case). Rode out to the end of Bayou Sale and started fishing in Bay Blanc with plastics then tried minnows and caught hardheads. Headed out to reef in Pelto and after no bites with plastics threw out a minnow and caught a speck. Fished a while longer, couldn't get anything to bite. Pulled up anchor and fished a couple rigs and along the back side or Last Island and only caught hardheads and a couple small oyster fish. At 10:45 stopped back at reef I fished earlier fished plastics a while then fished with minnows and caught 2 white trout then I started catching specks and at 11 specks I ran out of minnows. Started fishing plastics again and had no bites. I saw a small crab swimming next to boat so I caught it with landing net, broke it in small pieces and put on hook with plastics and caught a big sailcat so I stopped using crab and started catching few specks on bayou chub purple w/chartruse tail. Soon the bite picked up I was catching them 2 at a time top bait was matrix shad green hornet. The fish I caught on plastic were bigger than the ones I caught on minnows. At 12:50 when # 25 came in the boat I counted again and had to release the last one I caught.
