We finally had a really good stretch of weather this past week, the winds were down with calm seas, and plenty of fish came back to the dock. All the speckled trout we have caught this week came off of live shrimp, mixed with plastics, but they are starting to Keen in on live, bait and not so much plastics anymore. the first big spawn is happening now and the big female trout have started to show up on the shallow flats. Keying in on hard bottom is your best bet to target these spawning females.
The red fishing has been off the charts all week! limits of fish almost every day before 9 o’clock. All of our redfish have come off of live shrimp rigged under a popping cork. They are moving fast through the marsh making their migration so stick and move has been the key to success. If the weather stays stable, it looks like we’re gonna have a really good couple of weeks ahead. The water still remains cool the bait finally fish and shrimp have starting to show up and there are plenty of fish and all sections of the marsh. If the fishing continues on this pace we will have great summer of fishing from what we’ve seen just the last two months.
