Isle Au Pitre - Saltwater Fishing Report
Made a run to the Louisiana marsh south of Pass Christian, MS yesterday, and had a nice day on the water. This wasn't a charter, just buddy fishing, and although the strong easterly winds had the water muddy we managed to catch some nice fish.
In total, 5 bull reds, 12 gorgeous specks, and a 10-pound black drum supplied the excitement. Found most of the fish late in the day in a shallow cove full of grass beds and muddy water, but they were hungry. Had three of the biggest redfish on at one time.
Today, clacking corks with a chartreuse colored soft-plastic fooled most of the fish. If the water had not been so churned from the easterly winds we would have done much better, but I'll take that catch any day of the week. The new Blazer Bay crossed the rough Mississippi Sound with ease, and got us well into the marsh in 20mnutes or so from Mississippi's mainland.
Once this weather settles fishing will be superb, and that's what we're all waiting for. Have a number of trips this week in the Mississippi Sound for white trout and ground mullet, and I'll report back on that later. Good fishing!
