After back to back days of catching reds until we had caught more than enough redfish, I decided to take today off and take care of an ever growing list of "honey dos". I got three or four of them done before i could no longer pass on the perfect weather conditions. I made several quick calls that would have required someone being ready at that exact moment, but could find no takers and went alone.
The water was dirtier and much higher than I have seen it in a week, but the fish were still doing their thing. I caught redfish just long enough to make sure they were still there before looking for the trout. I found them in 3 to 4 feet of water and they were ready to eat a chartreuse Catch 2000 and a day glow Fat Boy. i never caught a fish over four pounds, but all of the trout were good solid 17 to 21 inch fish.
I also saw two other boats enjoying the same bite. They looked like they may have been fishing the same lures or possibly swimming a tail on a light head. One of them caught and released what looked to be a trout in the 6 to 7 pound class. i quit at 3:00 hoping to knock out another couple of chores, but that didn't happen. Gene and Doug talked me into making our annual run over to the Boat Show so I will be over there again tomorrow.
If you are also over there walking around and want to talk fishing give me a call at 313-3120. We will probably be there between 1:00 and 6:00.
