Description:

From downtown New Orleans you're just a Cast Away from Delacroix Island, one of the last remaining fishing and shrimping communities unchanged by time. A place that seems to move as slow and steady as the gentle tide shift of the day.

The abundance of wildlife and fish in the area has been rated at the top by such outdoor magazines as Fins and feathers/ESPN outdoors/ Louisiana Sportsman as well as others. Whether catching speckled trout, red fish, flounder or drum, you will be treated to some of the finest light tackle fishing offered anywhere.

Aquatic vegetation:

Marsh.

Cover/Structure:

Bays, inlets, ledges.

Tips/Tactics:

These fish wanted artificial cocahoes and live shrimp under a cork. With a box full of trout, we headed to a redfish hole and found the black drum thick as fleas. These fish were hitting live shrimp under a cork, dead shrimp on a jighead and artificial cocahoes.

Delacroix Islands Fishing Report 05.13.12

Got lucky with an early morning weather window before ther storms rolled in Saturday. Took advantage of it and headed out early, but stayed in protected water. The weatherman said look for the front between 8 AM and 2 PM. It was closer to 2 PM when it started raining, but we were back at the dock long before then. The fishing was good, but the tide was strange. It was falling hard till midmorning then a long turnaround and the tide rose for a couple of hours before starting to fall again. W...

Delacroix Islands Fishing Report 05.06.12

It was on Saturday in Delacroix. Everything was right and the fish really responded. We hit the sound early watching rain and several waterspouts working far East. We hit the submerged reef and found hungry speckled trout. These fish wanted artificial cocahoes slow rolled over the reef. We had live shrimp under a cork and caught a few, but artificials again ruled the day. The fish were in the 14-16" class and were almost all males. The winds were blowing out of the West then switched t...

Boy was it hot on Friday! Both the fishing and the weather. Little to no wind, gnats out in force and pushing 90 degrees made it feel like the middle of summer. The fish did not mind and we caught plenty of them. Speckled trout up to 3 lbs, redfish up to 26" and some medium sized flounder to top off the ice chest. These fish were caught in the inside deep water holes with adjacent flats, outer shallow water coves and over submerged reefs out in the Sound. The majority of the fish were...

Hot Delacroix trout on a windy day Windy day today in the Delacroix marsh. Got a late start on the morning and missed the incoming tide. First spot, first cast, Trout on! The trout were eating up artificial cocahoes on a 3/8 ounce jighead. We caught the trout in deep water winter time holes 10-14'. The fish were 12-17' and fat. The trout wanted the baits slow bounced on the bottom. Alot of small male throwbacks, but some nice 2 lb females mixed in. The females had eggs that look...

I once heard that you can't catch trout in February. Sure February can be a challenging month to catch trout but you'll never know unless you go. You could be missing out on a trip like we had today. I'm sure many of our fellow Sportsmen thought no way anyone would be fishing today with these winds. We went, saw, and slammed the trout! I fished with part of the A-Team today, Capt. Travis Miller, Capt. Chris Venable, Blake Venable, and Scott Walker. Launching out of Sweetwat...

Good times today fishing with John 'Holy Mackerel' Gremillion, and Scott 'Nightfisher' Walker out of Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix. We pulled out of Sweetwater at daybreak and were wetting our lines within 15-20 minutes. It did not take us long before we had trout hitting the box. Our first stop in 5 ft of water had the fish coming in under corks on Shiny Hineys by Texas Tackle factory and Matrix Shad. Our second stop in 11 ft of water had the fish coming in on Matrix Shad...

It was another trip for the Renshaw group with Brian, Stan, Chris, and Tim.   As predicted the winds were strong as we left Campo’s, but usually is with these guys. The wind kind of follows Brian around, but so do the fish. We made one stop around Lake Amedee and that was all it took to over fill the box. It was a blast and you never knew what was coming to the boat next. The Trout would bite, then the Heads would take over, then the Reds would show up, and next were the Drum...

I picked the guys up at the camp and we ran straight out to the Sound with the live well loaded with Campo’s live shrimp and croakers. Our first stop produced a few good Trout till the teeth fish and monster Drum took over. Our next stop we got on a steady bite on some big Trout. It would start and stop, but the guys kept at it and before long we could not fit another fish in the box. We called it a day and headed on in. 81 Trout, 5 Pompano, 1 Red, and a few Heads.

Had a great day on the water in the Delacroix Island Marsh. Kevin was down from Michigan for a few days and jumped on as my sole customer. He was looking to tangle horns with some hefty reds. We are still fighting transistion down here but we were able to finally get on our limit of beautiful redfish in the 24-28" class. Most of our reds came on fresh shrimp rigged 16" under floats in 2' of water. Lots of other mixed fish were caught as well like black drum, speckled trout and flound...

Had a tough start yesterday with s/e winds blowing 18-22 knots and gusting. Water was dirty almost everywhere, but finally got my crew into a protected area with some clean water. AS soon as our offerings, of 4” finesse plastics rigged 4’ under floats, hit the water the trout were eating it up. In short order we boated and boxed over 60 specks with very few throwbacks. The specks were averaging about 13-14” with quite a few going over 16”. Also a few nice redfish in the 24-26” class joine...

Delacroix Report:     Windy windy the last few days in Delacroix. I had a three day trip, Wednesday through Friday, with two guests from Illinois. We were faced with some very tough fishing conditions. Strong East winds up to 20 knots wreaked havoc with the tides and made travelling to the fishing holes and adventure. Waning tidal ranges and slow tide turn arounds also were problematic, but Louisiana is the fishing capital of the world! Wednesday we braved the winds to work the...

Spring Trout and Reds       Warm weather finally. Got out the last couple of days to do some scout fishing and see if the trout were in the mood. They were in the mood alright and nice too very few small fish all in the 2 lb range. They were not stacked up anywhere but scattered out across the shallow interior lakes in Hopedale and Delacroix. Popping corks with plastics 2 ft was the only way they would bite no tight lines. The red fish were up on the banks and hungry pl...

I had a "reel" special charter yesterday! The cast and video crew from the Cooking Channel  were on board with me. They were in town filming the next "Unique Eats"  show and wanted a bit of R&R. Chef Lee Anne Wong and the other chefs were on my boat and the producer and video crew were on my second boat guided by Capt. Jack. The conditions were not the most favorable to fish as far as tidal movement and other water conditions. And to add to the equa...

 I fished today(finally we are in more seasonable weather) with a group out of Natchez Ms. and we really got on the reds. The guys were taking these reds with fresh bait under floats in 14" of water...Over 40 reds were caught and released (except for a few for the grill) in the 22-26" class. WE also caught a good bit of these hard fighting/drag screaming reds on tight lined 4" curly tail plastics rigged on 1/4 oz. jig heads. WE started to fish at about 7:30 a.m. and fini...

  Well we have really been in the "icebox" down here in S/E Louisiana. The speckled trout catches have been very good when the water temps rise into the lower 50's, and lately, that hasn't been too often.   In the last 3 weeks I had 2 different groups out when the conditions allowed and we caught over 90 specks in the two trips.   I have had to reschedule a lot more trips than I have been taking out. We usually don't get these kinds of winters down here...

Tough day today in Delacroix. We pulled up into our first spot overjoyed to see bait spraying everywhere. We proceded to cast into the activity and only caught a handfull of fish. The water was extremely dirty and getting worse by the minute. That was the story of the day. We hit a dozen more places to only catch a couple at each. Dissapointing because it was beautiful in the marsh today. Breezy, cool and low humidity. I was hoping to get a good catch in before we potentually get oiling from t...

The Delacroix marsh yielded fish yesterday.   The morning started out with little wind and we ventured into an interior lake that was hot on Tuesday. The spot did not dissapoint as my guests caught fish on two out of the first three casts. It was looking good as trout, redfish and flounder started getting cold in the fish box.   Then they started flying around, landing on us and then sucking blood - gnats! Man those things are the scourge of the earth. The gnat bite was to...

Great fishing yesterday in the Delacroix Marsh. Brisk NE winds greeted us which did not matter since we were fishing inside the protection of the marsh. It actually kept it cool and the voracious gnats at bay!  We caught fish at every spot we tried except for one. Ironically, the only place we did not catch fish is typically one of my best producing inside spots. On the flip side, I learned two new spots and will be back to work them over in the very near future. We caught trout, redfi...

Delacroix Report: No tidal movement today out of Delacroix. The tidal range was .7 feet and was supposed to rise until early afternoon, but we could not find it. I guess the water has been so high, that there is a head for the fall and it was at a standstill. We tried a few rising tide spots early with only a few trout to show for the effort. Fished both inside and outside and could not find moving water. Decided to find some artificial movement by playing the wind driven water. Set up...

Our first stop no bites but stop number two was all she wrote. April’s first trout on the first cast and Jeff was hooked up before she got that one in the boat. That was the way it went until the limit was full. Live shrimp under corks or plastics. We even got the last few on topwaters Jeff really like that a lot. I had a first too I threw th...

Stopped short to avoid running into one of the rain cells and fished a deep canal adjacent to an interior lake. The trout were eating up live shrimp carolina rigged. Trout 12-17" with many throwbacks mixed in. With a storm rapidly approaching, we had the choice to run around or donn rain gear and tough it out. We stuck it out and fished in the rain...

Not a day to be in unprotected waters. My guests and I hit some protected flats adjacent to deep water and caught limits of trout 14-18".

Delacroix Report: Another windy day in Delacrox. I had planed to venture outside and check on some islands, reefs and rigs, but my guests and I decided to stay protected and work on the inside bite. A strong rising tide and brisk SE winds had the water moving well all day. We set up on choke points and casted cross current. The resulting trout were 12-20" with a few throwbacks. The fish were not on the bottom, but suspended along the shelf and onto the flats. We worked artificial lures, l...

Delacroix Islands Fishing Report 04.23.09

April 22, 2009 -Ray Huntzicker was back again to get some footage for an upcoming TV show “Huntzicker Outdoors”. The weather was perfect this morning finally light winds. We started out right on some nice trout but no tidal movement had the trout scatterd. We kept on the move all morning steady building a nice box of fish. Ray got some good footage of speckled trout action on film and a bag full of fillets too. Al fish caught on plastics under corks in chartreuse and glow. 42 speckled...

Delacroix Islands Fishing Report 04.21.09

Delacroix Report: My guests today were greeted with horrible fishing conditions. Strong NW winds, dirty water and minimal tidal range can be the kiss of death. Undeterred, we set out after speckled trout. Our first stop was at an interior lake draining into a deep canal. The tide was falling and the water was getting dirtier by the minute. First cast produces a nice 15" trout with an artificial cocahoe on a 3/8 ounce jighead. The action was slow, but steady and we picked away until we had...

Delacroix Islands Fishing Report 03.24.09

Delacroix Report: Back at it again this AM. I have been hitting the same series of spots this week with good success. The spots that were hot one day were off the next, but another was on. Funny how that works! First spot working a flat draining into a deep channel yielded a bull red on the first cast. Unfair because I had not even gotten everyone set up yet! That was the last fish to be found there. On to the next deep pass to find only a few small trout and a few throw backs. The next deep c...

Many Red fish above twenty pounds were caught recently just a few minutes from the dock as well as limits of speckled trout that are feeding in a frenzy to fatten up for the winter months coming.Just 40 minutes east of Dow...
