What a week in Hopedale Louisiana!! We had a phenomenal week of fishing, calm seas, great weather and the fish lived it!! We finally got our new 27’ encore catamaran boat this past week and we broke it in just right!! Opening day of snapper season was off the charts with a four man limit at the first spot and 28 giant mangrove snapper to top off the day!
Inshore fishing was fabulous, limits of Trout and redfish were a daily occurrence. We are still fighting the river water but there are a few small pockets of clean saltwater that are holding some fish. It took us a couple of trips to locate the clean water but now we have a good idea where it should be each day. The key this week was finding clean water and using live shrimp to help locate the the schools of fish. Hopefully the river continues to drop and the weather continues to calm down and we should have another great week of fishing.
