Has anyone had any luck with finding the specs yet? We had a real good day on them at grand isle over the weekend. Wondering if they are running around the shell beach area yet.

Went out Friday and only caught 6. Plenty Reds though! Northwest winds had the tide real low last week too. Will be out there again this Friday if weather permits. Usually been averaging about 20 to 30 trout per trip(2 people) this year.

Haven’t seen a single spec out there yet this season. Hoping that changes soon!

It has been a funny year for trout so far. We have been doing well way out in Breton Sound when conditions allow, but we have been having to work for them. The fish are there, the consistency is not. The entire area is really fresh right now and this low salinity is not what spawning trout are looking for. One thing I have noticed this year is the massive amounts of small croakers and pinfish all over the place, both inside and outside. I have never seen so many and they make fishing with live bait a pain in the ass.

I really do expect things to get a little better and more consistent in July. July typically is one of our best trout fishing months, you just have to deal with the heat.
