Big Hogs In Breton Soundby Captain Steve Himel on 06/07/13
I have been busy with charters and dancing around the weather lately but I wanted to catch everyone up with what is happening in the area I fish in Breton Sound. The big fish are definitely in Breton Sound around the outside rigs and all along the rock jetties of the MRGO. I have been concentrating my efforts more on the eastern part of the sound instead of the western ares because the water is cleaner and I am catching beautiful trout in that area. I was able to take a good friend of mine Heavy Helveston, who I used to hunt deer with. He just got a new boat and really wanted to take it out so he chartered me to come aboard his boat. He lives in the Lafayette area and wanted to sample our waters. We got out a little late and were able to catch the end of the incoming tide that was a steady bite of 1-3 pound trout. He was throwing the VuDu shrimp under a cork and I was tossing live shrimp. Both produced about the same and we ended up with around 30 big specks and 1 red in the four or five hours we fished. The weather finally looks like it is getting right and fish are waiting to be caught. I have a opening this Sunday if someone wants to hit Breton Sound for some big trout. Check out my website at http://www.marshland-adventures.com or call me at (504) 458-8737. The new boat is great and can accommodate up to six anglers. Live bait and fish cleaning are always included in my charters - no extra charges.
