1/26/2004 Captain Dude!!! Hopedale / Delacroix Island Fishing Report!!!

John Lowery, David Parcell son, David Parcell Jr. Don Hanna, Hank and Jermy Jungling, and Captain Gene Dugas, We started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in Black Bay for Some Bull Redfish, then to Marsh and Bayous in search of some Speckled Trout and Redfish!!! The weather was calm with half a foot, perfect for Black Bay. We stopped at several Hot spots and we were using live Minnows and Dead Shrimp on the bottom. They just would not bite. We decided to move to the marsh for some trout to find out that the boat in the oak river are were all moving around trying to get a few trout in the boat. When we were stopped by the Wild Life and Fishers and asked them if any one was catching. They said only one boat had 10 fish and this was around 11:00 am. We tried a few more spots it was one here and there so it was time to move to another area. The twin pipe had a few trout but the boat traffic stopped the bite. These Dude’s fished hard all day!!! Another great Day on the Bayou!!! The wind did not pick up till around 3:00 pm.
We caught
1 Bull Redfish
4 Redfish (released about 10 Rat Reds to fight another day)
8 Speckled Trout
2 Sheephead
We caught
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.

David & Mr. Paul Poole, Verland Grandberry. We started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in the Marsh and Bayous in search of some Speckled Trout and Redfish. We had the perfect day slick as glass; I thought we were riding on a mirror Arsome!!! We stopped on some trout spots and they were not awake yet due to very little tide, so we moved to get on the reds. The first hookup was David Poole ZZZZZZZZZZ!!! and the red broke the hook. Verland Grandberry in from Texas to get on some Bull Redfish action!!! ZZZZZZZZZ!!! Landed a 30+” long Bull Redfish. Then Mr. Paul Poole ZZZZZZZZZZZ!!! landed another Bull Redfish. Every one had a turn fighting these line stripping fighting machines. We were now ready to move on the trout and ran into Captain Cisco who gave us some of the lures he was using to catch his trout and left us in his spot, Thanks to Captain Cisco. Caught a few more and tried some other spots. Another Great Day on The Bayou!!!
We caught
4 Bull Redfish all 30” + long

1/5/2004 Captain Dude!!! Hopedale / Delacroix Island Fishing Report!!!

Kevin, Dewayne, Dustin, Nathaniel and Bryan Sandidge and I started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish in the Marsh and Bayous in search of some Speckled Trout and Redfish!!! The weather was warming up so we had fog till 9:00 then the wind picked up to 20 miles per hour, this was some tuff conditions for the Dudes to fish in. But they keep on fishing all day, making the best of it. We thought the 2nd day would be better, but the fog was thick till 11:00 then the wind picked up to 25 miles per hour, and the fish would not bite, some were in the deep holes. Low Water, Fog, Windy, Warm Weather time to go shopping for a week or two. Over all it was great time!!! I really wanted to ware out the young Dude out on some of the Rat Red that were catching but only one to be found. We nee some colder weather so the fish will school back up!!!!
The first day we caught
21 Speckled Trout
1 Sheephead
Day 2
6 Speckled Trout
1 Redfish 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.
