Captain Jeff Brandon Fishing Report, 3-5-24

By Captain Jeff Brandon
Surface water temperature dropped back down to 58 degrees, due to the front that pushed through the area. Water clarity stained for the most part, with a couple areas with better clarity west of Elm Grove. The majority of our success remains back in the marsh/bayou areas. This Redfish bite remains consistent in areas where good current flow has bait up against the shorelines/grass lines in 1 to 3 feet of water around oyster shells on Wac Attack Tails in Chartreuse, fished with 1/8 oz heads, as well as weightless presentations. The trout have preferred an eratic presentation with pauses, targeting deeper pockets close to channel bends/deeper drops with shell, triggering the most bites. Our experiece has been if you see bait flipping on the surface you will find some fish, if not, you are best to move on. The lighter the jig head the better, determined by the wind and current, and tails without paddles, performing the best. This week Fish Smack Popping corks with a 3′ leader above an artificial shrimp lure has done equally well on our trips, with a hard pop and about a 10 second pause gathering the most strikes. Spring is coming and fishing will continue to heat up as the water warms and the days continue to get longer.
