Carlton & Ken Schwab 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!!!
The weather was calm with no waves no tide just slick as a Mirror, perfect for Black Bay. We were surprised by a few Gnats. We stopped where the birds were diving on live shrimp Fish On!!! When the tide stopped the shrimp went down and it was over, but the one spot was worth 22 nice trout. Then off looking for some birds it was over in all over. We made a dash to the Drum hole where the day before we had caught 20 and today we could not even get a bite.

The marsh fishing is turned on the trout are in Lake Robin, Drum Bay, Twin Pipeline. The birds are diving on Live Shrimp, Live Storm Minnows, just pull up and Fish On!!! They are running in the 10” to 18” class. With all of the under 12” trout it looks like the fishing will be on thru the end of December. For the Redfish just troll along the shore lines fishing with live shrimp under a Cajun Thunder Cork works the best. The Black Drums have move into some of the deep holes in some of the main bayous!!!

REDFISH CUP!!! If you need a camp in Hopedale the Bayou Camp has an opening October 30, 2004 thru November 5, 2004.
