We finally enjoyed an entire week of lighter winds and while the water clarity didn't improve much....the bite did. We backed off of beating up the Louisiana shoreline for flounder and redfish and targeted only trout on the north end everyday. We failed to limit on only one trip, but still finished with a dozen keepers up to 20 inches that day. The majority of our trout were 16 to 19 inch fish with only one trout over four pounds, but we could have cared less.
Regardless of where we fished, we found the trout holding a long cast off the shoreline in no less than four feet of water. We caught a few fish on tails, but a crankbait or Catch 2000 in pink or green/mullet worked best for us. I heard the bite was even better on the south end of the lake, but we never had to run that far. Just prior to the trout bite improving, we were catching our reds and flounder working patches of clearer water on an outgoing tide. We caught very few redfish that weren't hugging the bank and running in small pods. They were chasing schools of tiny shad.
The dirty water is apparently bothering the fishermen more than the fish. If you haven't been able to get out in a while, don't let the lack of visibility bother you....the fish still have to eat and they are doing just that!
