With the salinity level exceptionally low and the water clarity very poor, it has been difficult locating any trout at all. Surprisngly enough, from time to time we have stumbled up on trout chaing small shrimp in the open lake, but there has been no consistent bite.
Yesterday we returned to the feeder bayous and backwater on the Louisiana side and worked our way through a number of small flounder. Keepers were scarce. There were some small redfish running the banks as well, but there were none holding in the backwater ponds. The most consistent trout bite has been south of the Causeway when you can get favorable weather. Spanish Mackleral and an occasional bull red has filled the gap between isolated trout bites.
I know we have lots of antsy clients at this point, but until we can put something solid together there is no sense in wasting your money. Burning gas hunting fish on this end is no fun either!
