Two weeks ago I would not have believed that we would be catching a few solid trout wading on the north end, but the last two trips have been very decent. We only got in the water because of the wind the first day and were surprised to find the fish. We never caught a fish that would have gone five pounds, but we caught 32 keeper fish in two days.
The water temperature was 69 degrees and that may have been all they were waiting on. We saw very little bait on the surface. All of our fish were in 2 to 4 feet of water. The water clarity was a little worse than it had been due to the wind, but it didn't seem to bother the fish. We were fishing a weak out going tide. The best lure for us was a Catch 2000, but we also caught them on 4 inch Usual Suspects and a pink/silver She Dog.
The birds have been working on the south end, but the fish that we have caught under them have been smaller. Most of our redfish are still coming off the shoreline. We are catching them on a spinnerbait and a Usual Suspect. I am pretty sure they will eat a GULP tail under a popping cork as well, but the gafftop are eating it too! Hope this little cold front only improves the bite!
I stopped by Outcast tackle in Groves to pick up a couple more Corky Fat Boys before they start disappearing and noticed that they had gotten some Yellowmouth jig heads in as well. There style of head extends the life of a plastic tail.
