11/25/2003 Captain Dude!!! Hopedale / Delacroix Island Fishing Report!!!

Raymond Canon, Charlie Thomas and Jerry Leggitt came in from Arkansas. After they had a good night stay in the Bayou Camp we started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in the Marsh and Bayous in search of some Speckled Trout and Redfish!!! We made a stop in the Middle of Lake Robin and we had 20 throw back in a row. So we move on!!! The Speckled Trout are still feeding on live shrimp under a Cajun Thunder Cork. Raymond and Charlie were picking on Jerry during the hole fishing trip!!! This was a trip that you had to move from spot to spot picking up a few here and there, because the weather had warmed up and the trout had scattered. Thank God for the cold front we had today it will have the trout back into the winter pattern. FISH ON!!! Just another great day on the Bayou!!!
We caught
2 Redfish
53 Speckled Trout
3 Sheephead

Rusty Moss, J. D. Fowler, Milton Griffith, Forrest Maddox, Sammy Bowman and I started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in the Marsh and Bayous in search of some Speckled Trout and Redfish!!! Rusty Moss was would have you think I was following him to all of the hot spots and showing us were and how to fish the hot spots!!! But we know!!! This team was having a great time giving Rusty a hard time joking about how they might get lost tomorrow when with just Captain Rusty. The warmer weather had the trout a little scattered, not as schooled up as last weekend. J. D. Fowler did not want to take any pictures with the 16” to 18” trout because he said he was going to catch a “GATOR TROUT” sure enough he hooked up and landed a 4.4lb Speckled Trout in the Marsh!!! Just check out the picture!!! Sammy Bowman was on the Red Fish spot catching at least 17 Throw back 14” to 15.75’’ range. He ended up Keeping 3 nice reds!!! Another perfect calm day with powder puff clouds on the Bayou!!!
We caught on my boat
48 Speckled Trout (one was 4.4lbs “Gator Trout” caught by J.D. Fowler!!!)
5 Sheephead

Randy Owens, Will Parks and JT Hale had a night gambling in New Orleans and were running a little late getting to the Bayou. We started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in the Marsh and Bayous in search of some Speckled Trout and Sheephead!!! We made a stop on the Birds and It was a non stop action until the tide quit at 10:30 when were done. JT Hale was throwing the trout back and was saying what we are going to do with all of the fish!!! But he would not throw back the White Meat. Randy had a few of the Sheephead get off right at the boat and was determined to catch one in which he did. The trout were caught on Live shrimp under a Cajun Thunder Cork. This was another great day on the bayou and finished up at 10:30.
We caught
55 Speckled Trout
14 Sheephead These Dudes!!! Call them “White Meat”

R. P. Fonteno and two of his sons Dan and Tim had me over for dinner and what a feast. Thanks again. The next morning we started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in the Marsh and Bayous in search of some Speckled Trout and Redfish!!! We were thinking about going to try and get on some bull redfish action like R.P. Fontento had caught last time out offshore, but the wind made that impossible 25+ north east. We knew were in for a long day. We fished the birds and that was a surprise they were feeding in such strong winds. The trout were making the shrimp jump out of the water and the birds were catching their share, this was one hell of a shrimp kill!!! But it was catch three trout and maybe we would keep one. We were fishing with Live Shrimp 1.5’ under a Cajun Thunder Cork. The wind picked some more and the birds stopped feeding. We tried all over the area and were just lucky of catch what we did. Dan Fonteno had a great time landing a 27.5” Bull red in 1.5’ of water.
We caught
1 Bull Redfish
16 Speckled Trout
ALSO THANKS TO GERARD CASWELL FOR REFERING R. P. Fonteno and two of his sons. Check out the Great Pictures!!! All you have to bring is a fishing license and what you want to eat and drink.

Jimmy Moreton and Tom Peyon and I started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou at 7:15 a little latter than we should have gone to fish the Marsh and Bayous. The weather was 25 miles per hour and out of the east and the tide was trying to fall. The bite was on in Hopedale Lagoon under the Birds. Still a lot of 11” trout, keep one out of three. We had a great day released a lot of 15” redfish. We move to several different areas to see if they were any bigger fish. The water temp was 65.5 degrees. Another great day on the Bayou!!!

1 Redfish
26 Speckled Trout
2 Southern Flounders
