Salt Bayou

Rating - Excellent   

Wednesday, Jul 01 2020
Early mornings, late evenings, and overcast days are the best times to fish soft plastics. Try casting pogie colored crankbaits around the mouths of the trenaisses. The fish will hang out along the shoreline and then transition to deeper water. Redfish will be in the marsh and the lake shore. Speckled Trout can be caught on shrimp or plastics. Croaker, white trout, drum and sheepshead will be at the mouth of the bayou too. Dead shrimp on the bottom will work for them. Crabs are starting to pick up in the lagoon and bayou.

Access Info

Best baits are weedless floating soft plastics early. As the sun warms switch over to a Texas rigged worm in Tequila sunrise or black. Bream can be caught on worms, crickets or Berkley nibbles. The mouth of the bayou has been chock full of mullet which has brought in the Jack Crevalle. Drum, croakers, and redfish have been roaming the area and provide decent action on some days. Artificial shrimp have been working the best. Crabbing has been much better this year when compared to prior years.
