As the temperatures drop and the water cools down our fishing down in hopedale Louisiana continues to get better! Our speckled trout are schooled up and making their migration throughout the interior marsh, this makes for easy pickings to fill the box with speckled trout. On the other hand our redfishing has been off the charts! It been a few years since we have seen this many redfish in the marsh! Days of 50 to 100 redfish catches have been very common here lately! My guess is that this is a sign the winter fishing is going to be insane! If you want to come down and experience this crazy action give us a call and see for yourself why we are called the fishing capitol of the world!
On a different note we are gearing up for big duck season that starts in two weeks. I've been building blinds and checking leases and we are already covered up in birds! As I type this report our largest cold front of the year is upon us and its only going to increase the number of birds we already have! We offer guided duck hunts here in south Louisiana along with our famous blast and cast combo for you hardcore hunting and fishing enthusiast. So if you like to fish, hunt, or do both come down to hopedale, LA and let Capt. Britt with The Big Outdoors Charters show you what sportsmans paradise is all about! Until then tight lines!!
We took a few days off away from fishing to fill some alligator tags with our clients and focus on teal season! We had great success filling all our alligator tags in short order, but the teal birds did not show up for the first few days of the season! Hopefully we can get a big push of birds this week.
While I was hunting alligators some of our guides stayed fishing and it has been hot and heavy action on redfish and a bit slower on the trout. Our trout have started the transition from the outer gulf edge into the marsh, so keeping on a consistent bite has been tough since the fish are moving so fast everyday. On a good note this has been the most shrimp and menhaden I've seen in the marsh in a very long time! I'm expecting the fall and winter fishing to be phenomenal with all the bait that has transitioned into the marsh already!
If you would like to fish or hunt with one of Hopedale's most experienced guide services give Capt Britt a call and book a trip of a lifetime.
