Speckled trout fishing in July is one of the hardest months to box up beautiful speckled trout because of the water temperature. I had a trip today with a restaurant owner from uptown New Orleans Louisiana. It was a two boat trip as we had the camera crew on one boat and the chef’s on the second boat. They wanted to shoot a film of the fishing trip for a promotion for the restaurant. By the time the sound crew got everybody miked up with audio for the camera shoot we were late getting underway. We headed south across Barataria Bay towards the barrier islands with a slight breeze out of the southwest at about five miles per hour. The water clarity was perfect out by the islands and it was during the week so we did not have a bunch of traffic out there fishing. We set up on one of my favorite oyster reefs and went to work catching speckled trout. The bite was not fast and furious, but it was steady enough to get the footage they needed to make the show. During the course of the day we ended up landing three bull reds for a good photo take and then release them to fight another day. The entire crew had a great time and that is what is most important to us here at Bayou Log Cabins. I always say that taking a group of folks out and catching a box of speckled trout and red fish is one thing, but when you can bring that group of angles to the next level in regards to knowing why we caught fish and showing them how to read the water, well then they learned something about fishing. We try to make a fishing charter with us interesting and educational as well as fun.
