Super trout bite

Site Sponsor
On Sunday I had the pleasure of bringing Rusty and Hudson fishing. I wondered how the fish would react with the wind up and the fog thick, but it didn't take long. I didn't go to the honey hole because the wind was wrong so I tried some protected reefs and everyone we went to had trout on it. It sure was nice to see the numbers of small trout cause last year we didn't have very many. With little Hudson on the boat I brought live shrimp for the first time this year and it paid off for him. I always do what it takes to get the kids catching. It was amazing that the fish could find a 100 count shrimp in stained water so fast. Rusty asked about reds for Hudson and how close we were to a limit of trout. I told him we were at 44 in the box. He said lets get to 50 and go after the reds. by the time I turned around again we had 55 and shut it down. Stop #1 only produced drum around 15 pounds so I moved just a little and found the reds. Don't know how I missed taking a redfish picture but I attribute it to old age. At one point Hudson says that his hands and arms are hurting too much to catch any more fish. Music to my ears. That is how I know that I have a kid hooked on fishing for Life. Again the Berkley Rattle Shrimp in Coastal Candy was the plastic of choice with live shrimp catching their fair share. The trout fishing is real good right now so don't wait till summer come get you some now. Give me a call.
