MARSH MAN MASSON: Plenty Speckled Trout CLOSE To River Water!

When the Mississippi River is high and its turbid water spills into the marshes of South Louisiana, it definitely moves speckled trout. Being sight-feeders, specks are handicapped in water with less clarity than the NFL’s rules on what constitutes a catch.

So they move to water where they can see their prey.

On the one hand, if you plan on fishing in the direct outfall of all that river water, you’ll probably be disappointed. But if you can move just a bit, you’ll likely find concentrated specks that’ll devour anything you throw to them.

That was the case when Capt. Justin Bowles, Chris Macaluso and I headed out of the Plaquemines Parish port of Pointe a la Hache.

The water right in front of the marina was dirty, as you’d expect for an area so close to Mardi Gras Pass, but we took a 10-minute boat ride to find water that wasn’t great — but was a lot better — and it was full of fish.

Check out the video for all the details.
