Dularge fishing guide, Captain Marty Lacoste, shares his inshore journey with us. Listen to what he’s got to say.
Marty was born in Houma, but spent a good deal of his childhood traveling with his family, since his father was in the oil business.
Ultimately, it was his grandmother who instilled his passion of inshore fishing in him, which grew so much that he is now a fishing guide today.
He was fishing for red snapper offshore, out of Grand Isle, when his boat broke down. It was a super hot day and he ended up having a heat stroke.
It was so bad he was delirious, but his friends were able to get a tow back to Grand Isle. But, bad luck strikes again and the boat towing them spun their prop!
Then they were able to get a third boat in the mix, who ultimately got them back to the dock safely.
Captain Marty is all about two things during a hot speckled trout bite:
He will use maps in old GPS units to locate unmarked underwater reefs. That is how he is able to locate new spots no one else is aware of, so the fish that are all to himself!
Captain Marty also believes in keeping his head on a swivel, observing his surroundings, looking for opportunities and getting a feel for the marsh.
