As the weather changes, so do a good fisherman's tactics. Knowing where to go when conditions aren't ideal makes all the difference.

The redfish and black drum have been the main focus for us. Since the live and dead shrimp have been plentiful in the bait shops, it has been easy fishing.
Because we are fishing mainly reefs, bridges, old piers and oyster beds, the snags are plentiful. Bring plenty of leader, swivels, hooks and weights. The best bites have been when the tides move. It doesn’t seem to matter if it’s rising or falling; moving water has been when we see the most action. We have seen some decent flounder these past few trips as well.
We’ve only had a few boats venture over to the Louisiana Marsh. These are seeing a few school trout and white trout beginning to show up in the interior bays and reefs. This should only get better and better in the coming days/weeks.
We don’t typically see big trout this time of year over in the marsh, but we do see huge numbers.
Please keep what you need, and leave some for the next angler.
