Double Dip Fishing Trips

the water was clean at the launch you can
eight sections deep.
Yesterdays post I said I was going back to the Seabrook to catch some speckled trout I planned to work the wall around until I found the trout . as I was launching I saw one of the trout masters Chink Sumas hanging out under the bridge he is known for catching big specks. One of these days I will go fishing with him on his boat I imagine it will be one of those heros journey student learns the secret of  the master  moments. I launched around 9:15 and pedaled across the swift current of the rising tide that was pushing through the industrial canal. I headed for the airport wall where I left off yesterday catching specks. the current was moving a little faster today and it was tough to keep contact with the bottom. After two hours of jigging and nothing to show my patience was wearing thin. I did have a few hits but I didn't stay very long as the sun was high and I could feel the sunburn setting in. I hung out in the area and this evening I gave the yak a break and fished from the bank on the lake pontchartrain seawall. One of my favorite places to fish is the seawall where I caught my first fish a croaker that lived in the freezer for a long time when I was younger. Since then I have progressed to speckled trout, but they did not want to cooperate.The bite was tough and the fish in the vicinity were small. I did manage to fool two the first was an aggressive little guy who hit a bait half its size. The second was even smaller than the first about nine inches what we call a cigar trout in Louisiana. Even Though I didn't catch a box full of fish it was good practice for slowing down when the bite is tough. The technique I used to catch with was letting theMirrolure 52MR sink to the bottom and then reeling really slow back to me that was the only way the fish would bite.
