Trout and reds in the Wind

Site Sponsor
Day 1 Good customer Brian Thompson and David Bowley from Texas were back with me today. North winds and low tide threw a wrench in our original plans. We slept in a little later and departed with the sun up. I decided to check some areas I haven’t fished in a while, and our first stop had the Four Horsemen Tackle corks going down one after another! We put a small mess of decent specks on ice before the bite went dead. We tried four other areas for trout with no luck, then switched our focus to reds. We picked away at the reds also under the corks with bait shrimp and caught two on artificial. They made us work for them today!

Day 2 we found a good school of trout catching almost every cast but they were all 11.5 inch fish. We kept six trout, with the winds blowing we were limited to where we could fish. We tried to go long but only found chocolate water. We retreated to the marsh for reds once the water was high enough. We fished for a couple hours without a single bite. Around noon we started to see some reds in the clear water. My guys sight casted to about 20 reds and six bit. Long tough day but it ended up nice sight casting these reds watching them bite. Always a pleasure fishing with these guys. The steaks and crawfish were delicious!! Thanks for everything guys.
