Today I had the pleasure of fishing with Dr. John Moffatt and his friend John. I picked them up from the log cabins at exactly five thirty in the morning and headed south across Barataria Bay. We had a stiff wind out of the west at about 15mph and the bay had about a two to two and a half foot wave. We were taking the waves on the numbers on the front corner of the boat and that makes for a wet ride. We arrived on the south side of Barataria Bay and ducked in behind some islands and found some clean water. We were fishing a split tide so as soon as we arrived we started catching beautiful speckled trout right away. Then the tide started to slow down and so did the bite. As soon as the tide started to fall the bite picked up and the guys went back to work. We were fishing in two foot of water using live shrimp three feet under a cork. At around ten o’clock am we limited out with fifty very nice speckled trout. Considering the weather conditions for us to limit out with fifty speckled trout, I would say we had a great day on the water. We took our time and headed back across Barataria Bay and then on the the fishing village where Bayou Log Cabins Fishing Lodge is located. The guys were nice enough to help me clean the speckled trout, wash them and put them in sip lock bags for the ride home. I iced the fish down in there ice chest while they cleaned up for the ride home. I am sure those fellows will be back for some more speckled trout fishing before the summer is over. Fishing speckled trout is a relaxing event, it makes for a great day on the water, not to mention the memories you build with family and friends while having fun. I always tell folks that catching speckled trout is the reason why you book fishing charters but at the end of the day the most important thing is the good time you had along with building memories that will last a life time. Bayou Log Cabins Fishing Lodge is in the business of making your fishing dreams come true.
