Default no fish in the reefs anymore

I fished on Sunday in the reefs south of Marsh Island and caught 1 keeper red. The water was pretty in most areas, but it seems the reefs are getting worse and worse. We caught sharks and gafftops.

Agreed and a total shame! Born and raised in Iberia parish, I fished Weeks Bay, Vermilion Bay, Dry Reef and reefs outside the Pass as a youngster and never remember fishing sucking as bad as the last several years! I have lived in Lafayette now for almost 50 years and my go too spot is now Big Lake. A long drive and 12 hour day! Today, left home at 4:45 am and returned at 4:15 pm with a total of 5 specs! Talked to 1/2 dozen fishermen at Calcaseiu Landing and we had best catch! Ten days ago went to BL, caught 75 specs by River Pilots Station and kept a total of 16! A whopping 3 1/2 lbs has of filets! Discouraging!! Hard to believe but fishing is becoming more frustrating than golf!��

I've been watching the water in the bay and Marsh Island area. Its been very dirty and fresh all year long. Just recently cleaned up. I wonder if it takes a period of time for the fish to move in once the water clears up. I'm itching to fish the reefs south of Marsh Island.
