Hopedale Box-O-Fish Marsh Trip

Hopedale Box-O-Fish Marsh Trip,

This morning Nolan, Rene, and I left out of Pip’s place instead of another nearby launch to save 15 cents in fuel seeing that all of have been losing our you know what’s off in the stock market. The weather was very breezy and clear and the tide was high but falling all morning. Water conditions were murky and fishing started out slowly but picked up as the day went on. Using avocado cocahoe minnow lures in chartreuse/red flick under clicking corks the trout were obliging but slowly with an occasional black drum and some redfish. We fished No Parking Lagoon and saw one other boat familiar with the area but did not see him catch any fish. We on the other hand weren’t doing much better but did catch a few throw-back trout. Lake Ameda has been producing some trout drifting across it but they are scattered. Fishing really didn’t turn on with any consistency until around noon where we caught some decent sized trout in a back lagoon off of Hopedale Lagoon out of the high winds which were persistent all day. We end the day with a mess of trout and a few drum and one channel mullet— a box of fish at best.

Good fishin’,
