Fishing Report: The early morning Trout bite is red hot.We have been catching plenty of
keeper Trout the past week on both artificial baits and live Pigfish.
The best topwater baits have been Chug Bugs and the 3.25 High Roller.
Grass Flats with 2 to 3 ft of water and plenty of sand holes seem to
be the key.Clean water seems to help but we have been catching some nice
Trout in the off color water as well.
My client Bill S of Orlando FL had a great 5 HR trip with me on Saturday the
29TH catching over 20 Trout most coming on a Topwater 3.25 HighRoller
Many of these Trout were in the 3 to 4 pound range.
I spent Tuesday night fishing the
Edgewater area lighted docks and caught plenty of Trout and a couple
nice Snook.Pitching a Large Live Shrimp around the lighted docks was the ticket
to steady action during the incoming tide.
The Redfishing has been on and off the past few days.Seems that one day
the Redfish will eat anything you offer them and the next day they will turn their
nose up at everything you offer them.On the days we have had a good breeze
a gold spoon in hard to beat and on the calm days a Bitters Skip Shad
in the New Penny FireTail Color is working best.We have also been catching a few
Redfish on cut mullet fished in the sand holes.
