Hopedale Fishing Report 10/17
Was windy as hell today. Steady 20-25mph with higher gusts. Water was pretty murky all over. We were able to find some cleaner water in smaller lagoons, bayous. Stayed inside, obviously. Hit lagoons and bayous off Bakers Canal, Little Half Moon, Half Moon, Blind Lagoon and St. Malo.

Struggled to get on any kind of steady action, except for once we found the reds in the early afternoon, but managed to put together a mixed box of 6 reds, 8 specks, 2 bass, 2 white trout. Not a great day but will take it with the conditions we fought.

LOTS of throwback specks and reds.

Used combination of live shrimp and saltwater assassin minnow in opening night color on 3/8oz lead jig head, all 2-3ft under popping cork.

Specks from 12-16"
Reds from 18-24"
Bass were 11-12"
White trout 10-12"

My buddy kept the white trout and I kept the bass. Here's my share.

I'm going Monday, might hit Delacroix depending on the reports tommorow. If the weather was cooperating the fishing would be on fire right now.
