LOUISIANA: Targeting Speckled Trout on Artificial Lures

Monday, August 6th, 2012

It seems like for the last few weeks I have been fishing with a lot of kids fishing with their fathers and grandfathers. Just family type fishing. I really enjoy watching kids and young teenagers having a good time doing something outdoors like fishing. I think they really need to be at least 10 years old before they are out on fishing charters, because they usually cannot go for long until they burn out and lose interest in the trip.

We have caught some nice fish here lately too. Usually these young anglers need a lot of coaching at first, but I am impressed with how some of them catch on quickly to casting and fighting fish. It is always more difficult with kids when the fish are not biting, and we have to move around to find them. I don’t want them to get discouraged early, but fortunately we have been on the fish pretty good. I keep telling folks that the number of fish we catch in a day has a lot to do with where I decide to fish, but it has a lot to do also with the crew I take with me…

Anyway, everyone has said they have had a good time. The Summertime Redfishing has been on, and the cooler fall months are right around the corner. I like targeting the Speckled Trout in the fall on artificial lures. The Redfish bite is as good in the fall as any other time as well. If you want to take fish home with you to eat, then fall is the best time because the trout are easy to catch. Please, give me a call or email me if you have any questions about availability or whatever.

FLORIDA: Good Sized Speckled Trout Willing to Eat Small Gulp Lures on Jigheads

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Only one day this week at Flamingo.

Fishing local angler Larry Silver and his guest, Rich, we quickly found a spot in Whitewater Bay that held small redfish, and very good sized speckled trout willing to eat small Gulp lures on jigheads, all under the watchful eye of a bald eagle.

Normally eagles won’t let you get very close before flying away but this bird allowed us within fifty feet and just sat on a low branch watching the action. I think it’s feathers needed drying out so it just wasn’t ready to start the day…. We then ran out to the rivers just inside the Gulf coast to find large trout, ladyfish, small and medium mackeral, and a large bluefish (large for our area at about 3lbs…) -then it was out to the coast for some solid redfish action north of the Shark river area… Just before heading that way we found plenty of white bait and one toss of the net loaded the live well.

A three or four mile run later, we set up at a nice creek mouth that was just beginning to fall. From that point on it was redfish after redfish (with a few large and grumpy sharks in between). The smaller sized under slot and barely slot fish ate either small jigs or white baits. The larger reds all went for a fresh cut ladyfish meal… Here’s two pics of the bigger fish…

Both Larry and Rich took turns catching and releasing a total of around a dozen reds at this one spot. When the action slowed it was off to another area -this time for grouper. With only one small grouper this day we didn’t exactly do very well with them.. The large trout and very nice reds made up for it, though. Since Larry needed to be on the way home a bit early we cut the day short.

This particular pattern should last another few days since there doesn’t seem to be a cold front in sight. If the wind will lay down a bit I’m sure we’ll be adding tarpon to the mix….

MISSISSIPPI: We got 80 White,15 Speckled Trout and 3 Redfish!

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

The Mega Bite was on today with a total of 98 fish. We got 80 White,15 Speckled Trout and 3 Redfish!

All the way from Texas to fish in Biloxi were Jamie, Hank, Blake and Cutter. The stars of the day were the young boys Blake age 14 and Cutter age 7. Blake put this 32” Bull Redfish in the boat without any help. Cutter got more than his share of big Speckled Trout and White Trout. This 7 year old fished like a pro he was awesome! After Blake saw his Brother catching so many fish it was time for me to make an adjustment to Blake’s line. Blake was now hauling them in like a pro!

Jamie and Hank got their share of some nice fish.

N. CAROLINA: Seeing Plenty of Speckled Trout in the Sounds

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Seth, of TW’s Bait and Tackle, reports that anglers are catching solid numbers of chopper and smaller bluefish and sea mullet from the piers and surf. The choppers will take an interest in cut baits or metal casting lures when they’re schooling, and anglers can connect with the sea mullet on bottom rigs baited with shrimp and bloodworms.

Cobia are showing up between Oregon Inlet and Cape Hatteras, and anglers have landed some from the piers and more while sight-casting bucktails and live eels to fish they spot cruising the surface. The cobia fishing should only improve as the water in the area continues to warm.

Inshore, anglers are seeing plenty of speckled trout in the sounds and good numbers of flounder at Oregon Inlet. Gulp baits and live finger mullet or mud minnows are top choices for the flatfish.

Offshore, the yellowfin tuna fishing is improving, and good numbers of dolphin are also making their summer migration into the area. A few blue and white marlin have been in the mix as well. Most of the action has been down towards the light tower, but warming water should have the fish pushing north soon.

LOUISIANA: Smack Down on Speckled Trout

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Another great day on the water in Hopedale LA.

Yesterday Gerry, Les, Kevin and son Burke put a smack down on the speckled trout. Third stop was all it took live Campo shrimp 2 ft under a cork and some nice sized trout were filling the box pretty quick. The bite slowed down but we had plenty and Burke was ready to get some redfish so off to the marsh in search of reds. The reds proved a little tougher to find but we got few to bend the rod along with some drum and a flounder and called it a day and head for the dock with a box full of fish.

90 Trout
4 Reds
4 drums

LOUISIANA: Coastal Rivers Delivering Nice Speckled Trout

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Coastal Rivers Delivering Nice Speckled Trout Aboard TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS
Fished yesterday afternoon in the coastal rivers by myself, and in 2.5 hours I easily landed my limit of 15 fine speckled trout in the 15 to 16-inch class.

Have to admit that was fun all by my lonesome, and I haven’t done the solo thing in quite some time. Generally all of my time is spent helping others catch fish, but I am glad I took time to fish solo.

Today decided to take my good friend Eddie Jones along. It was extremely windy on the river making it tough to fish, but we still put 6 fine fish in the box. Four of them were really hefty specimens.

Caught all fish on soft-plastics fished very slowly on the bottom. Going duck hunting tomorrow, and the weather looks to be ideal for a diving duck hunt. We’ll see!

If you don’t book me, well, I’ll have to just keep going hunting and fishing on my own. You know that breaks my heart! Just kidding!

Come on down my friends and let’s catch a mess of fish and/or shoot a few ducks aboard TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS before I wear myself out.

Regards and many thanks to all,

N. CAROLINA: Redfish, Speckled Trout, Striped Bass and a Few Flounder

Saturday, December 4th, 2010

The inshore fishing has been really good lately with catches of redfish, speckled trout, striped bass, and there are still a few flounder hanging around. The weather has been great and hopefully will be good for the Thanksgiving holiday. The speckled trout bite should be strong for the next month or so and the redfish and striper fishing will continue all winter long.

The redfishing has really picked up this past week with large schools on the flats and smaller pods of reds working the creeks. The reds are ranging in size from under slot fish 14″ to 18″ to large over slot fish up to 29″. The sightfishing has been awesome the past couple of days with the light winds and low tides. Most of the reds have been caught sightcasting and blindcasting soft plastic jigs and scented artificials. Fishing live mud minnows and shrimp on float rigs and bottom rigs will also put good numbers of reds in the boat.

The speckled trout bite has been good throughout the Cape Fear area from Wrightsville Beach to Southport. The specs are hitting soft plastic jigs, mirrolures, artificial shrimp under popping floats, and of course live shrimp on float rigs. We are also picking up a flounder or two while throwing artificials for redfish and speckled trout.

The striper fishing is starting to pick up in the upper Cape Fear River. Fishing shallow and deep diving plugs and swimbaits around ledges, structure, and creek mouths will pick up stripers all winter long. We recently got on a good sunset topwater bite and picked four fish in about thirty minutes on topwater plugs.

This is a great time of year to fish for reds, speckled trout, and striped bass.

N. CAROLINA: Big Speckled Trout around Wrightsville Beach

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

It’s funny we had one of the coldest winters and this summer was the hottest on record. Not the best conditions known for good Speckled trout stocks but Speckled trout fishing has been great and should continue to be great till water gets cold. The last three weeks has been a rollercoaster of weather and the fishing has followed that rollercoaster too. Most days the Speckled trout fishing has been good to great with some bigger fish really starting to show.

The days we are throwing artificial lures like grubs and hard baits. The MirrOlure has been one of my (go too’s) this season and it has paid off well for me. The bigger trout seem to really like to 52M and 52MR this season. The colors of the 52 series that are working the best for me is: 11, 26, 51, 704, 808, CFPR, CH and HP. I fish the 52 series in water deaths of four to ten feet and sometimes deeper if there are lighter water currents. The days we are fishing in waters of two to five foot deep, I’ve had luck with the 17MR and Catch 2000jr. The colors that are working in the 17MR and Catch 2000jr are 11, 26, 808, CFPR, CH, EC and BCH.

I’ve seen a lot of trout hit grubs this season but most of the Specks have been smaller, so what do you do when you want to cast grubs. Try bigger grubs like the Gulp Ripple Mullet or a five and six inch Gulp Jerkshad. Another trick I’ll try sometimes to make bigger trout bite is make a double grub rig. When you work a double grub rig, you need to work it a bit faster so the grubs just don’t sink to the bottom. And always with any Speckled trout leaders use Fluorocarbon leader, trout have very good eye sight and this time of year the water can be very clear. I prefer Stren’s tinted Fluorocarbon leader in twenty pound in gunsmoke tint, this stuff works!

So you like instant gratification fishing, give live shrimp a try. I rig live shrimp a two different ways; in shallow water two to six feet I use a float rig. My float rigs consist of twenty pound Stren (gunsmoke tint) or Berkley Vanish fluorocarbon about twelve inches long and a number six treble hook for a live shrimp. When I fish deeper waters (five foot plus) or with stronger currents I use a light carolina rig. These rigs consist of a very small swivel, fourteen to twenty inches of fluorocarbon and a number one L42 Eagle claw hook. The sinker for this rig needs to be light 1/16oz or 1/8oz split shot and 1/8oz or 1/4oz egg sinkers should do the trick.

I’ve started to see some large schools of Redfish getting there act together over the last few weeks. The Reds are starting to show there winter trends and this can make for some very good Redfishing. When I fish for winter Redfish I use lots of Berkley Gulp! You can’t go wrong with scented lures when the water gets cold. Berkley Gulp Ripple Shad, 3″ Shrimp and five inch Jerkshad should do the trick. I rig all these baits with fairly light jig heads so the baits will not just sink to the bottom.

Seeing large schools of winter Reds is not hard but scaring a school is also easy to do. Here are few things that will help you catch more schooling Reds and help you not to make everyone around you mad at you! Long distance casting will catch you more fish! Try a 7’6″ spinning or casting rod but don’t go to heavy. If the lures are too heavy, the noise they make hitting the water can spoke the Reds. One thing I see a lot of anglers do is run there boat over the school, do all you can to not let this happen. If your boat is drifting towards the school, move before you spoke or run over the school! If you spoke the school you’re only going to hurt the fishing for you and the other anglers. If the school leaves your all out of luck!

N. CAROLINA: Fall Fishing is on-Speckled Trout Time!

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Fall is really starting to show its face around Southeastern North Carolina these last few weeks. Some warm days, some cool days and a few colder days! The good part of this is no more hot days and but lots of HOT fishing and the fishing has already been great and will even get better with this cool weather!

November is a great mouth to catch Speckled trout and one of my favorite to fish for. They are good to eat and a lot of fun to catch on light tackle. It really does not matter if you like to fish artificial bait or live bait you can catch lots of Specks either way! So far in the last two weeks we have picked up some very nice Speckled trout as well as good numbers of smaller ones.

Here is how I’m catching the Speckled trout lately. On the artificial side of things; MirrOlures are working very well for me this season so far. I’ve got to say we are catching them on the new ones like the 17MR and 18MR but some of the bigger ones are hitting the good old 52M&MR this season. My clients this last weekend found this out when the biggest trout of the trip hit a 52M; plus six more between two and four pounds. So colors of MirrOlures you ask? 17MR and 18MR’s in colors: 11, 26, 808, CFPR, CH, EC and BCH. As far as the 52M & MR in colors: 11, 26, 51, 704, 808, CFPR, CH, HP and one I call ‘Hatteras Light’ we’ll leave it at that…

Soft baits are always a winner for trout fishing and you can catch good numbers of Speckled trout on grubs etc. Berkley Ripple Mullets are a newer bait on the market and have been real good baits for Redfish but I’ve caught a few very nice trout on them lately. The colors I’ve had the best luck with are Goby magic/chart tail, Root-beergold/chart tail and glow/chart tail. These baits are a bit big so I rig them with light 1/8oz jig heads and use the Ripple mullets in shallow/light current areas. Berkley Powerbait shrimp will catch the specks. I prefer colors, natural, pearl white and new penny, rigging with red or brown jig heads. Saltwater Assassin makes a very large selection of great trout grubs, give one of these colors in the sea shad pattern a try on your next trout outing; chicken on a chain, copperhead, S&P silver phantom/chart, chart/diamond, sweet pea, 10w40/limetail and greenback shiner.

So you like to catch trout on live bait, well give live shrimp a try. The trick to live shrimp is knowing when to stop feeding the trash fish like; pinfish, lizard fish, and small bluefish. Using live shrimp can get expensive but you can catch some good numbers and size trout with live shrimp. I rig live shrimp a two different ways; in shallow water two to six feet I use a float rig. My float rigs consist of twenty pound Stren or Berkley Vanish fluorocarbon about twelve inches long and a number six treble hook for a live shrimp. When I fish deeper waters (five foot plus) or with stronger currents I use a light carolina rig. These rigs consist of a very small swivel, fourteen to twenty inches of fluorocarbon and a number one L42 Eagle claw hook. The sinker for this rig needs to be light 1/16oz or 1/8oz split shot and 1/8oz or 1/4oz egg sinkers should do the trick.

I’m still seeing the Redfish around and a few Bull reds are still biting from time to time around the inlets. There have been a few schools of Reds in the surf but due to very high winds and seas not much action there lately. On some sunny days I’ve caught a good number of Reds along the ICW and oyster flats in local creeks north and south of Wrightsville Beach. Live finger mullet and fresh cut bait will catch’em but, give a Berkley Gulp 3″ new penny shrimp or a root-beergold/chart tail Ripple mullet a shot and I bet you’ll have no problem catching a few redfish.

In other fishing news, the weekend of October 29th and 30th was the Cape Fear Red*Trout Series. This year again Adam Meyer and Liz Pitts of Charter Lakes Insurance Group fished with me. Liz did very well again this year taking home Grand Champion Lady Angler and General Division Champion. Our team came in 3rd over all in points. This is a tournament to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis; I look forward every year to fishing this tournament of a great cause.

Fishing gear we use:

Gear used: Speckled trout and Redfish: reels Penn Conquer 2000 and Battle 2000 spinning reels. Rods: All Star ASR 7′ Trout (med-light) and/or Redfish (med) series. Line: Spiderwire Ultracast ten and fifth teen pound. Bull Redfish: Penn Battle 6000 or 7000 and Penn Conquer 7000 spinning reels. Rods: Ugly Stik Tiger Jigging 6’6″ spinning. Fluorocarbon leader material, Stren Tinted Fluorocarbon in tints Gunsmoke for clearer waters and Tannic for river or stained waters in twenty pound test.

LOUISIANA: Hopedale Fishing Smack Down!

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

DOUBLE SMACK DOWN’S

Back to back last two days were pretty much the same story SPECKLED TROUT and REDFISH in the interior marshes in Hopedale. Both days got right on the trout early with live campo shrimp and plastic’s under corks.

Fishing the moving tide at the mouth’s of lakes and points with moving water. After the limits were full on trout we moved a little closer to the shoreline and the redfish were there ready to take our shrimp and do battle. AWESOME two days and great fall weather. The Fall Fishing is ON some give me a call and come catch you some!
