Hopedale Grand Slam Report

Hopedale Grand Slam Report,

Today Don and I left out of our favorite launch site in Hopedale and headed straight to Grand Slam Lagoon. Weather was great and the tide was falling all morning—water clarity good. We were ready for a trout smack-down using 3 inch Berkley New Penney & Natural Gulps on 1/8 oz white screw jig heads under egg clicking corks fished 2-3 ft down with a 1/16th oz. split shot sinker halfway down from the cork. Trout action was immediate and basically non-stop. Key point of interest is to not anchor but stay trolling and drifting outside the in-flowing canals by 50-100 yards as they enter the lagoon. The trout were very nice with only a few throw-backs. We limited out with 50 trout and left them biting by 8:30 AM.

Good Fishin’,
