Flounder on the ship channel better than usual

It was high noon and my two guests and I were fishing on Light House Cove reef and the morning bite had just about played out. We had twenty-two speckled trout and one nice slot red fish. Not a bad box of fish considering the conditions of the day but way off the pace of the previous two days.

 

The wind had swung to the southwest at dawn and had dirtied the water on the entire Louisiana shoreline where for two days before it had been dark and clear like coffee. Of course, a stiff southwest wind is the enemy of all upper coast anglers. No one likes it, not even the fish. I felt that I was fortunate to have pulled off an early morning set up on a couple of flocks of seagulls and some scattered shell pads later.
