Busted the Trout and Reds

Big group from Florida back down at the Reel Inn for their second year. The guys slept in late and we rolled out around 7:15 am. Our first couple stops found boats where I wanted to fish and zero fish in the K2. Made the decision to run to a area I haven't fished to check it out, and we struck silver!! Every cast keeper fish on double rigged Matrix Shad and even added a nice red. When the bite slowed down we made a short move to another reef and it was fish on every cast again (every one in the boat). When the smoke settled we had iced down 90 trout. The guys wanted to battle some bigger fish so we found a spot in 14 ft of water and the bull reds were stacked up. Quadruple hooks ups as everyone in the boat was hooked up. The guys boated right at ten reds in about 15 minutes before the chaos settled. Then it cranked back up again! We hit one good flock of birds adding another 19 specks before calling it a day. Great time stuffing the Cooler with these guys. Thanks to Capt T for setting everything up.

Trout are everywhere actually. All of the interior Lakes, showing up in good numbers. The trout should start to get bigger also any day now.

I have a question regarding people like this keeping an insane amount of fish. First of all, do they really eat all of these fish? 2nd of all. Is this hurting the population of trout and reds in the marsh? I am open to the fact that the population is thriving and growing, if that is the case, but i have to wonder if people continue to take these numbers of fish out, we are going to see a decline in the numbers. Again, i realize the marsh is huge, and if the population is truly thriving and either constant or growing, thats fine, but i just wonder what impact this has, and if its truly necessary to keep such a large number. Would be curious to hear peoples thoughts.

These guys are doing what is given ,studies of Seatrout in La are on track for continued success.A one year Female can can lay 100 k eggs an older Female millions.La has never had number problem.If 25 a person was an issue i'm sure it would be changed... if feel inclined to throw yours back,just make sure you handle them properly.

I wouldn't know you if you sat next to me because you are hiding behind a keyboard name. Our clients are recreational fisherman that hire us and we are obeying all the laws. Look at the data. Trout population is in the zone that the WLF are good with. And you are seriously misinformed if you think we limit out everyday and if you think a guide's limit would actually change anything with the trout population. If the data supports the decrease then I'm in full support but to hear you whine and hide behind a fake name makes me wonder what type of person you are. Unreal how people can criticize people making an honest living.

BTW that post you are referring to was an afternoon trip and morning trip with 4 boats each day and nobody limited out. We put all the fish from both days on the dock. Just another misinformed post.

Jeoulsy is a evil thing. I guess you release all the fish you catch? If you know us so well and want to talk, how bout you stop by instead of trying to bash us on a public web site and name call like a kindergarten child. All we are doing is making a honest living, and advertising like any other business owner. We pay to post on this site. If you don't like our post then don't click on them. So sick of people like you Coonassgreed fake computer jockey.

In response to the nonsense! I moved to the D'Ville area approx three years ago and have spent countless hours getting to know Dularge. I'm the guy with the 22 'blue pro master that is usually loaded with young men, my son. When I first starting fishing I never saw the guides, but this year I do. Key words II see the guides, by running around looking for the right point or reef. These guides have been instrumental in letting me know when do go and when not to go. As far as fish count, go shade birds for 4 hrs, your arms will fall off. Thx guys at the Reel Inn.
