Video: Elmer’s Island beach trout tactics

Artificials, live bait both catching specks leading into holiday weekend

If you’re heading to Grand Isle this week for the 4th of July, hopefully the weather cooperates and the hot trout bite along the Elmer’s Island beaches will continue.

The forecast doesn’t look the greatest right now, but specks have been being caught on both artificials and on live bait, especially croakers and shrimp.

Check out the attached video to see what’s been working best.
