Tough day at Delacroix yesterday. Launched out of Sweetwater and headed toward Black Bay. High tide around noon, but water was still quite stained. Within an hour, water was moving out, full of moss and pretty dirty. Caught one bull red but couldn't keep the Gulp from the Gaftops. Water salinity tasted like 10 ppm, about like the potable water in Leeville. Only caught two trout which wouldn't reach 10 in. Caught a record Gaftop (smallest I've ever caught) on a 1/8 in jig & Matrix Shad (see pic). Bait was everywhere so I figured it was just a bad moon. That's why they call it fishing!!!
