hopedale report plus oyster reef question

Reply
 
fished saturday afternoon in hopedale. wind was pretty heavy out of the north and then died at the end of the day. fished lake robin and the cuts near the north side of the lake. i am not very familiar with the area. caught maybe 20 to thirty but only 2 were keepers. lots of 10-11 inch trout. moved to lake coquille and found birds diving and sitting. caught more trout but again almost all throwbacks. ended the day with 7 keepers throwing back well over fifty. i have not fished coquille before and saw some oyster reefs that were pretty defined by pvc. they were in six feet of water. i have not fished oyster reefs before but seems like they could be productive if fished correctly. any advice on how to fish them would be appreciated.

The keeper trout can still be a little hard to find until late October near the marina. The keepers tend to be in more open water like Lake Borgne and Christmas Camp. Always keep redfish and drum as a Plan B option if the trout don't work out. Lake Robin and Coquille have plenty of drum and redfish; fish points with currents and shorelines with shells with shrimp.

The keeper trout show up near the marina around Halloween, and stays good until mid December.
