8/15/2003 Captain Dude!!! Hopedale / Delacroix Island Fishing Report!!!

15 Aug

Gerard & and son Adams Caswell, Randy & son Alex Toepfer on their 2nd trip out with me to catch some more Bull Redfish & Trophy Trout. We started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to Black Bay!!! The weather was calm with no waves no tide just slick as a Mirror, perfect for Black Bay. We stopped at several of my Hot spots we were using live Croakers on the bottom. Wham!!! Gerard Caswell was hooked up on Monster Bull Redfish ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!! Took out all of the line and then popped it.  Later Gerard hook up on a 4lb trout and we thought a 4’ shark was about to eat it but it was not a shark, it was a Monster Bull Redfish. A few minutes later Wham!!! Adam was Hooked up on a Monster Bull Redfish after a 20+minuet struggling to keep him out of the rig he landed the BEAST, the Monster Bull Redfish all of 43” long and about 30+lbs, what a great Graduation Present. The line from Gerard pervious hook up was hanging out of the Bull Redfish mouth. Gerard and I both were impressed!!! This was one hungry Bull Red!!! Then it was on to Trophy Trout, from 3lbs to 4.5lbs.  Then off to the islands again to finish off the box with some smaller trout!!! The bite was slow but steady you had to fight off the ladyfish and needlefish to catch some trout!!! We were using Live shrimp under a Cajun thunder cork in 2’ of water.
ALSO THANKS TO CHARLIE DAGILE FOR REFERING GERARD CASWELL and his fishing team to go on this fishing trip with me; I had a great time with such nice group.

We caught
1 Bull Redfish 43” long about 30+ lbs
48 Speckled Trout
3 Southern Flounders
Check out the Great Pictures!!!  
All you have to bring is a fishing license and what you want to eat and drink. Two Comfortable Private Deluxe overnight accommodations that have night fishing & you can catch crabs right from the boat dock.
