Redfish in South Louisiana are plentiful 12 months out the year, and there are as many ways to catch them as lures to use. As with almost any fish, though, there’s no more fun way to catch a bull red than on a topwater lure.
Trout fishing out of Cocodrie is a bit different this year, and it took Prairieville angler Steve Brockman a couple of trips to figure things out.
But he finally hit on what works this weekend — and the result was hefty specks in the box, including a 5.27-pounder that put his son Tyler on the CCA STAR leaderboard.
“He was losing his mind on the boat,” the elder Brockman said. “He’d never seen trout that big. We had numerous 20-inch, 21-inch, 18-inch fish. I think we measured two fish.”
