7 days of Trout and Reds

Site Sponsor
The winds have been a pain and have dictated what we can and cannot do.
Tuesday and Wednesday Bobby Dixon’s crew from Texas came in. High winds had us redfishing Tuesday but winds laid down a bit for Wednesday so we chased the trout. The guys did real well using gold spoons and green Hornet Matrix under a cork for the reds and double rigged Matrix and live shrimp for the trout.

Thursday afternoon and Friday Rick Chappuis and the Home Bank crew were in. Winds were slightly up but guys wanted trout so we took a shot at it. Thursday afternoon was slower than Friday morning but my crew put a nice lick on the trout and a bunch of Sheepshead together for the afternoon trip while mainly all trout for the morning trip. Thanks Capts. Kevin and Marty for helping me out. Double rigged Matrix and live shrimp was the ticket.

Saturday and Sunday Tracy Hilburn came down from North Louisiana and were greeted with really high winds. Saturday went off without a snag as we put slots and bulls together. Sunday didn’t pan out as well because the big storms chased us in early but we were able to put together a little pile of slots and a few drum before all hell broke loose. Gold spoons and Matrix under a cork worked on the slots while the bigger reds and drum wanted the cracked crabs. Thanks Capt. Marty for running the second boat.

Monday we actually had low winds and Jerry Blouin’s family slimed up the Bluewave nicely using double rigged Matrix and live shrimp. Sure felt good not dealing with the high winds.
