9/30/2003 Captain Dude!!! Hopedale / Delacroix Island Fishing Report!!!

Edlow Jones, George, Ron & April Kipper this was their 3rd trip with me, we started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in the marsh in search of some Trout and Redfish!!! The weather was 30+ Miles per hour and was not a day for the outside fishing. We know before we left the dock it was going to be a hard day to put fish in the boat. We were joking about the bad weather but we headed out to just fish the marsh and ponds. We had a better time than watching the Saints.
We caught
20 Speckled Trout
2 Redfish
1 Black Drum
1 Bass
“The Trip #2 in June” On “FATHER’S DAY” we finished up with:
37 Speckled Trout ONE HEFTY 6LBS 27” LONG “WOULD HAVE BEEN OVER 7LBS IF THEY WERE SOME MORE EGGS”
1 Redfish
8 Black Durm
8 Sheephead (Bay Snappers)
1 Southern Flounder
“The Trip #1 in November” was memorable we hooked up as soon as we stopped we ended up limited out with
25 Red Fish nice size 17”- 28”. We need some more Speckled Trout so we took off after them.
40 nice Speckled Trout and 3 Bass one of the Bass was 3.7 lbs. Great Day!!! The Ladies Put the Hurt on the Dudes with the Largest Red Fish and Largest Speckled Trout. They defiantly put the hurt on the Red Fish!!! Glen Told me he gad a 15 lb Bass when hooked up, I almost fell out of the boat laughing!!! This also was a fun Trip for all of us!!!” Check out the Great Pictures!!! All you have to bring is a fishing license and what you want to eat and drink.
