8/30/2004 Captain Dude!!! Hopedale / Delacroix Island Fishing Report!!!

Sheree Thornell & Leonard Jimenez and I started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish Black Bay and Breton Sound in search of some Trophy Speckled Trout and Monster Bull Redfish!!! We stopped one of my Hot spots we were using live Croakers on the bottom. Wham!!! Sheree was hooked up on a “BIG GIRL” after she landed it I was trying to get a picture, by the time I could get the camera ready she had another one, going after the camera again and she hooked another one so I took a picture of all three in the net. This was some fast action but did not last long. It did not take long for Leonard to learn the feel of how to set the hook on these Trout. The wind started to get stronger so we went to the Marsh for some Redfish and landed two red in the 20” class.

We caught
2 Redfish
16 Speckled Trout
1 Sheephead

Tide = 2.09’ Rising till 12:24pm
Weather = Partly Cloudy
Winds = 10-15
Waves = 1’to 2’

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. and you can catch Blue Crabs right from the boat dock.

Bob Sossaman and son Greg Sossaman, Charlie Guerin Sr and son Charlie Guerin Jr. We started down Dudenhefer’s Bayou going to fish Black Bay and Breton Sound in search of some Trophy Speckled Trout and Monster Bull Redfish!!!
The weather was cool with 2’ waves a steady incoming tide just perfect for Black Bay. We stopped at several of my Hot spots we were using live Croakers and Live Shrimp on the bottom. Wham!!! All everyone was hooked up on Monster Bull Redfish ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!! Every one passing the rods around each other and under the anchor rope they were not giving up easy. Landed 5. LIMITED OUT IN BULL REDFISH BY 6:20 am. Wham!!! We saw the SPLASH Charlie Guerin Sr. hook up on a SCREAMER ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!! This Monster Jack Crevalle was on the move after a 20+minuet struggling going around and around the boat, passing the rod around every one fishing this was because we were in only 1’ of water. He eventually landed the BEAST posed for a quick photo then released. We were using Live shrimp under a Cajun thunder cork in 2’ of water. Due to the wind we starter fishing in the marsh we landed 4 tasty Southern Flounder, the cooler weather and water temp. Made the fish bite more of a feeding frenzy style.
