Our summer fishing pattern is in full swing in southeast Louisiana!! The temperatures are rising and the fishing is just as hot! July and August are my two favorite months for some of the best trout fishing Louisiana has to offer. With the warmer temperature the fish have to feed hard early morning before the temperatures rise, with that being said it’s very common to catch limits of trout extremely fast and beat the heat almost every day in July and August. While most fisherman prefer not to fish these months because of the heat it’s my favorite because of the least amount of pressure on the water and very fast past fishing.
This week Hopedale, Louisiana was on fire! I caught limits of trout everyday this week before 9 AM. I’ve noticed the trout are starting to settle in that mid summer pattern and that means some of the best trout fishing is Just around the corner. Most of our fish came off of live shrimp this week and very few fish are reacting to artificial lures. We have an abundance of bait that showed up this week and I believe it’s one of the reasons the trout preferred live bait over artificial this week. Most of the fish are not stacked like cardboard at one particular spot but every spot we moved to we would pick up 20-40 trout at each spot. The trick was to be patient at each spot, giving 15-20 minutes picking one fish here one fish there until they started that feeding frenzy.
If you would like to join us at The Big Outdoors Charters and experience a fishing trip of a lifetime now is the time!! We are catching plenty of fish and having a great time doing it!! Give us a call and let us get you out on the bayou!!
