Trestles Time-Trout Tamers!!!

Wifey and I had our Ponchatoula Wal Mart Medicare kiosk stint today and texted few fishing buddies and coordinated our planned Trestles trip tomorrow and was hoping to get back home and see nice package of ultra-fine,ultra-effective Fin-S Shakers in colors that are unbelievable and really have NOT found any other soft plastics that come close to Lunker City's in terms of variety of colors and sizes dat baffle de mind,not to mention tail-waggling effects,think dat was de ticket last Th,once I switched from tried-and-true Berkley Gulp,Swimming Mullet,Chartreuse.Texted de Wiz and he joked dat I cleaned out de warehouse,once he saw just a fraction of what I ordered(got me fine shirt,gratis with orders over $100).Got more than enough to keep Trestles specks enticed and Dave Raggio and I chatted briefly yesterday and he and AJ whacked and stacked dem specks this past Sat!!!Wanna make a trip with dem fellows to somewhat compare notes and Dave and I agreed that what most of dem trollers were trolling up looked to be 14-16 inch fatties vs 19-22 inch logs jigged up using soft plastics,my absolute favorite way to fish,be it sac-a-lait,bass,reds,flounders,specks,of course!!!Rigged up nice and BIG swimbaits,using Gamakatsu swim-bait weighted hooks and Myron at Marshland in Ponchatoula had excellent idea,especially deep-jigging either Causeway-he advised that the addition of pegged bullet weight,Texas-rigged,would assist not only with casting but also getting dem fine swimbaits down to de lunker minefield!!!Hope de 3 Amigos tomorrow whack and stack some fine Trestles specks and love this time of year.Gonna re-check Wunderground and should have excellent,though cold conditions and BIG BAITS usually yield BIG FISH!!!Go out and get u summmm!!!
