Went searching for some trout on Monday the 29th. Upon reaching the destination we were greeted went a rolling incoming tide and plenty of bait everywhere. Slow bite the first 30 minutes or so, using a cork and slowly reeling keeping the bait 2-3 ft below the surface. Once the tide slowed, the fish were holding in the current lines. So much bait in the water, the pelicans were thick, and Everytime them yellow mouths were being reeled in to surface the pelicans would make a b line for em. Ended up with 47( had the ole ball and chain counting em lol)
Went looking for more reds with the Arctic weather we've been having. Had my wife and a friend of mine from new York along for the day. We found the reds on a bank we fished the previous week and they ate up our glow b2 squid on 1/8 oz jig heads on double rigs worked SLOWLY. If you think you're reeling slow, go slower, and sometimes sitting completely still they would nail it. As we were reeling it ice was actually forming on our eyes of our rods. My buddy from new York wanted to call it quits when we had number 13 in the box. He said this wet cold is for the birds lol. Keep on castin!
Spend the last couple of days in dularge seeing how the cold has affected our fisheries and so glad we did. Fished an area we normally slaughter the trout every winter but since our hard freeze this hasn't been the case. After working multiple 3'lures on 1/4 jig heads, we switched over to 1/8 oz jigs using 2' glow lures and caught a few trout the first day and attacked the banks and the reds ate them up. Went again this morning and attacked the banks and again the reds loved our b2 squid in glow color. Seen some action in the middle and tossed our double rigged b2 squid and ended up with 28 fat trout. Got time off this week and hope to put a couple nice boxes together again.Keep on castin. God bless!
After being convinced to take a late morning trip, got on the water at around ten and was glad I did. Went look for birds in sister lake to no avail, so went fish points and drains to the north. Shrimp under a cork produced bay snapper, several 15 inch reds, and a few slots.once the bite slowed, ran to a few reefs throwing double rigged matrix shad catching a few then got on a good bite of 11 inch to 18 inch trout and picked away at them until it was time to head in. Put 34 specks on ice and called it a day. Shrimp Creole blazing hornet and avocado worked best
Went out this morning to see what effect Nate had things in dularge. Upon entering the lake, found hundreds of birds diving. Went to work with double rigged matrix shad. Lots of throwbacks but nice keepers every 5 or 6 fish. Shrimp Creole under a cork drifting in current lines produced nice trout also. Best baits of the day on tandem rigs were holey holey, shrimp Creole, green hornet, and avocado. Not a limit but 23 specks and 7 white trout is decent day for me.
Headed out around noon armed with double rigged matrix shad looking for trout.After drifting over a couple reefs and seeing no birds diving in the lake, we made a move to an area we haven't fished in a while.started soaking bait shrimp in 6 to 10 ft water depths and the reds ate it up. One after another averaging 22 to 27 inches the biggest going 29. Added 5 drum with plenty puppy drum thrown back and a freshwater cat for lagniappe. Great first day of spring
