We actually have been out a couple of times in the last few weeks. Not one of our trips have crossed the state line into LA waters. All of our trips have focused on fishing the reefs and bridges in MS waters for sheepshead, blackdrum, with a few random reds, trout and flounder. Had a good little run with the live shrimp, but that well has run dry. We have been using the dead shrimp, and it will get the job done in a pinch. Using Okuma spinning reels(RTX, V's, Helios, and Trio's) spooled with 20-30lb braid tied to 1/2 ounce sinker on a carolina rig or dropper loop rig. Have not heard much from the trout trollers in the river about catching fish. Come to think of it, I have never heard a trout troller tell me they are catching fish. Very tight lipped group, but my hat goes off to those cold weather die hards. I am sure they are hit and miss with this warm/cold weather we have been having. Been getting calls about Spring Break. We still have days available if anyone wants to take the youngsters while they are out of school. Last year we were blessed with nice weather the entire week of Spring Break and tore up the fish, hope we get a repeat this year...
