Finally....this is what I have been waiting for.
An all out TROUT slaughter.
We got on the tail-end of it, Friday with Traveller Bob in my last report. But today we were On It. And Stayed On It!
Fished one area all day. Just made slight adjustments to stay on the spot better as the tide changed.
Four guys, and myself of course. LIMITS for all!
Plus, we threw back some small ones, and kept a 1/2 dozen Yellowmouth Trout, Two Mangrove Snappers, had 4 Jacks, and a 17" Redfish.
Float-rig fished live shrimp. Had two guys in the back of the boat doing that, while two were on the bow casting 1/4 ounce jigs and Matrix Shads, on light spinner rods.
JUST LIKE LAST YEAR, AFTER BERYL AND DEBBY.....(the two tropical storms that hit us in early summer) IT ALSO TOOK NO LESS THAN 4 MISERABLE WEEKS FOR THE WATER TO GET BACK RIGHT.
Well, same here. We've been picking and poking around. And even had completely dead "couldn't find any good bite going on days" since the big rains of the first week of May.
So, hopefully. All that is behind us, for a good long while. I'll be basking in a Trout bite that makes for some seriously happy customers.
LIMITS, from 17 inchers, to 5 pounders!
