After a consistent run of very good days we finally had a tough one or at least one that we had to work harder to catch fish. As the weather has warmed up ahead of the next front it has gotten harder to find the fish bunched up. Redfish are still pretty easy, but we have found trout anywhere from 3 to 15 feet deep so that leaves you a lot of water to cover!
The river and the lake is still very clear even after the last rain. We are catching our reds on everything from topwaters to tails. If you can find the water pouring out of a marsh drain it is all but a sure bet that the reds are there. We are catching our trout on Catch V's and Soft-dines in 3 to 5 feet of water or dead sticking 4-inch tails in 12 to 15 feet of water. The deep water strikes are very subtle even though they are solid keeper trout.
The past few days the late afternoon bite has been the strongest. I think we are done through Christmas and it looks like we'll be back to fishing colder water again next week . Merry Christmas and Happy new Year!
