It’s that time of the year. Here are some pointers as to what kind of birds you are looking for to find hordes of speckled trout stacked underneath. If you haven’t read it, then take a gander at When Should You Fish The Birds?
Take a look at the video below of liar birds at the Crash Intersection in Hopedale.
Bill Murray playing Captain Devin in “Nutria Day”.
Some days I wonder if I am Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. It just happens that most questions I am asked on charters are often questions I had just answered the day before. This experience has given me a perspective to help you in your quest for those speckled thingies.
I remember watching my dad post and read fishing reports on RodnReel when I was a kid. I thought it was great that we could share our experiences with other fisherpeople.This eventually influenced me to share some fishing spots with other Louisiana fisherpeople.
Hello LA Specks, Captain Devin here! It’s that time of the year. The summer pattern is in full swing with fat speckled trout being caught in places like Breton Sound and Black Bay.

There is so much more information readily available that you can see what the water is actually doing versus what it’s predicted to do. Jump-start your learning curve without spending time on the water. What am I talking about? Well, I am talking about real time data provided by the Shell Beach Buoy!
Mindset. This defines a fisherman and how well he fishes. How do you approach a fishing spot? How do you treat others at the marina? Fact is, your mindset will make or break you as a fisherman long before you set the hook on anything.
