This mornings trip was a 3 person 4 hour trip. We started the morning by pulling the shrimp trawl to catch bait. We caught plenty of bait fish, but few shrimp. So after picking out what baits we wanted, we stopped by marina to pick up some more shrimp, and we were on our way. It was blowing 15-20 mph, not exactly ideal, but we managed to find a good bunch of fish out of the wind, and went to work.
We fished live shrimp and live croakers 2 foot under a cork. It was pretty consistent action, with various size fish caught. Every fish caught was a trout, with the exception of one gaff top catfish, which they decided would go in the box too. A good many smaller trout, but we culled through the smaller ones and were able to put together a nice mess of fish.
The bite is only going to get better over the next couple of months. These fish hang around all summer, but can be found in larger numbers in May and June. Speckled trout are great fun and also very delicious.
