Speckled trout limits are being caught on the oyster reefs right on the inside of the barrier islands near four bayou pass. Today I had the pleasure of fishing with a group from Atlanta Ga. With all the rain we been having I through we would have to reschedule the trip today but after watching the weather report last night it looked like most of the rain had moved to the west of us so we gave it a try. I picked my customers up from the cabins this morning at safe light and by the way it is getting safe light latter and latter as the summer comes to a end. Anyway we headed south across Barataria Bay towards the islands where we been catching some beautiful speckled trout. The bay was relatively calm with a slight breeze out of the southeast that was hardly making a wave. When we arrived at the oyster reefs near the islands the water was not too clean, maybe because of all the rain we been having. We tried a couple of spots and picked up a few at each spot and decided to head west towards Grand Isle in search of some cleaner water. Well that was a great decision as the further west we went the cleaner the water got. Upon arriving at some islands on the south side of Grand Isle we notice plenty of sea gulls working some sunken islands that I have marked on my GPS. Normally you will not catch nice size trout under the birds, however this was one of those days where we did. I told one of the guys to try and he pulled up a nice trout about sixteen inches. Well we put both power poles down and went to work on boxing up some beautiful speckled trout. In to process of catching a nice box of trout we ended up having the pleasure of catching three thirty five to forty pound bull reds. They had a blast catching the bull reds because they don’t get many of those up in Atlanta. After doing a quick photo session with the big reds we put them back over to fight another day. Just another fantastic day on the water with a great group of folks.
