New Orleans Fishing Report for 4-8-18. Dave Sudderth and son Dean were my crew today. We were greeted with 50 degree temps and 20-25 MPH winds out of the NE. Rain was intermittent but they were here to fish so we fired up the #Majek and headed out. The bite was slow but we kept after them. 74 miles and 24 gallons later we ended the day with 8 in the box a ton of rats and a few overs that we had to throw back. Great crew that were an absolute pleasure to fish with!The weather patterns have been late this year with odd cold fronts keeping the bite slow. Strong winds in excess of 20+MPH gusting into the 30MPH range have impacted the areas we are able to fish. Unusually high river water has forced the opening of river diversions north of the Delacroix marsh forcing dirty, fresh, river water into the area and pushing the fish further south. As soon as the weather stabilizes and the river level drops the fishing in Delacroix will be great! May is shaping up to be the month everything gets corrected and the fishing really turns on! Call now limited days available in May and June, the books are filling rapidly.Fun crew that were a pleasure to fish with.
