BIGFISH: Delacroix is a HOT SPOT for multiple species

Despite high Mississippi River levels fishing in much of coastal Louisiana is looking good. Delacroix is especially hot for catching fish right now!

Looking for speckled trout, redfish, and more like this? I’ve got just the place for you this weekend.

Delacroix Is The Place To Fish

This is a great time to fish Delacroix!

Captain Jack Payne, G.W. Finn’s Chef Teddy Flynn, Maddie McFarlane, and I left the Sweet Water Marina in search of everything that would bite. Never expecting what might bite.

I asked Captain Jack Payne how long we’re going to see this continue for what?

“About a month and a half. Speckled trout stick to the inside,” Captain Jack Payne said.

Full Box Of Fish

We caught a great box of fish today: speckled trout, redfish, sheepshead, and even a big blue catfish!

This was only Maddie’s second fishing trip and she said it was by far her favorite.
