Deciding to go deep or shallow are your two options typically as we go into June. What that means is the trout are going to start heading a little deeper looking for swifter currents and saltier water. Typical trout depths we find them in June is 12-25’ of water and since they like swift current zones targeting the change in tide is important. What I like to do throughout the summer is to focus on the lake borgne rigs if the tide is swift and the all the bridges in the Rigolets if the tide is at ease. The going shallow part means if you don’t want to get up at the crack of dawn sleep in until 6:30 or so and focus on the duck ponds from 7-12 in the morning getting the perfect sunlight to see the reds in the shallow ponds in any of our marsh systems from the intercostal, Biloxi Marsh, Proctors Point and more. Do that on your sunny days for sure. The more east in the wind the further back in the ponds you can go. I love the Matrix craw for the reds and the “Croaker” XShad for the specks throughout the entire summer.
