Hopedale Inside Cold-Weather Trout Report

Hopedale Inside Cold-Weather Trout Report,

Today I decide I’d head out by myself to see how the trout were biting despite cold weather and slow tide. My first stops didn’t yield much but I really wanted to head to Grand Slam Lagoon. After boating a few trout on a clicking cork and 3 inch New Penny Gulps on 1/8 oz screw jig head, I finally headed to Grand Slam Lagoon where I found someone else sitting on the spot. I managed to edge in and using cocahoe and beetle tandem rig I started to put some fish in the boat. These were nice fish and very few if any were throw-backs. The other boat had 3 people fishing and they were doing very well. I just about had a limit but I felt uncomfortable fishing too close to someone else so I left and headed to One Pint of Fuel Lake. I picked up 2 more trout and had my limit and was back at the launch before 11:00 am. Every boat I saw was catching fish. The weather was fine but cold and the tide was a bit on the low side but not too bad.

Good fishin’,
