Too much southwest wind has blown out a very good bite for me four of the past five days. We were keying on bait and lady fish to find our trout, but they are hard to see between the whitecaps. The Louisiana shoreline has just been completely blown out and the wind is already howling at first light.
I saw the most boats and waders that I have seen on a single day this morning and they were all wadded up on the north end of Pleasure Island. There have been some small trout on those flats and it was the only semi-protected water. With all of this wind the clarity is still not terrible so we should be back in business as soon as the winds slows down a little. We have been catching our fish on five inch tails rigged on 16th ounce heads and topwaters.
