Winds finally laid down for a great week of fishing

Site Sponsor
Brian Williams crew came in Oklahoma for 3 days starting on Tuesday and with the winds up the first 2 days we focused on bull and slot reds using everything in the bag from cracked crab to gold spoons to shrimp under a cork. Day 3 we finally had low winds and headed south not sure what the water would look like but it was worth the gamble and we found hungry trout using Double rigged Matrix Shad. Friday and Saturday it was Mark Benard’s crew from Texas. The guys got perfect weather and beat up on the trout the first day then we hit the trout early on Saturday then as the tide quit we went after the bull reds. Sunday Josh Cockfield’s crew were back and just as the previous days the trout were hungry for the double rigged Matrix Shad. Big Thanks to Capts Lonnie and Kevin for putting Shawn Mosely and Brad Eschete’s crew on the trout. I finished up on a long stretch yesterday with Brad Davis’s family. The kids had almost as much fun as me watching them catch trout in the morning then some big reds and drum late morning before the heat got us. Best technique for the trout was a slow retrieval with a twitch almost like bass fishing.
