Christmas Day Foggy Trout Slam

Christmas Day Foggy Trout Slam,

While most people were passing ribbon-wrapped gifts under ornamentally decorated pine trees, Mickey and I were out passing the landing net to each other, pulling in fat Christmas specks. Today was a very foggy, calm day with great tide movement and virtually no boats out on the water.—other than a few family-less, insane individuals like us. Action started off fast and kept on going all morning. So much so we found ourselves over the limit when we made a trout count, having to throw back more than we care to state, leaving them biting. Water clarity was very clean and the trout were hitting clear DOA’s under clicking corks, tight lined cocahoe minnow lures in black/chart tail, Saltwater Assassin space guppy, and smoke colored stingray grubs fished on ¼ oz. jig heads. After limiting out on specks, we headed to a redfish spot where we picked up on 5 keeper reds and 4 black bass. The fog lifted around 11:00 am and we had enough fishing for one busy morning.

Good fishin’,
