Fished West Matty and POC over the weekend with a buddy of mine and did well. Hit the right number of trout in West on Saturday but the fish were small with only about half being 17 inch trout and 20 inch reds.

Sunday hit POC south shoreline in San Antonio Bay and used what we teach in the videos to hone into the right spot. We had structure, bait, and current and then started seeing and reading the slicks and the bait activity more intricately to pin point small groups of fish working and using that to pinpoint cast. Some of those small groups of fish had some real studs in them. We ended up with limits of trout to 22 (most ranged in the 17 to 22 range) and the reds were solid from 24 to 30. Water was still very fresh with only minimal salt in it probably somewhere in the 5-8ppt range, definitely less salty than in West Matty. Forage in the area was mainly mullet and shrimp.

The strikes were lead by using one knockers and she dogs but the TroutSupport Lure did the HEAVY lifting easily catching the majority of the bigger fish accounting for 90% of the solid fish and studs on the stringer.

Since we were fishing shell in waste deep to chest deep I slowed it down and used a slow rod pump followed by a twitch twitch at the end. This would also allow someone to get the feel of the bites faster starting with a lure like this. Don't have to walk this bait for it to produce. Did miss one fish with a weak hookset. LOL. All good sweeping rod hooksets resulted in solid hook ups. Reel down and set the hook when using weedless baits




. Finally got a chance to try the bait with a 4/0 VMC unweighted swim bait hook and results were good.

Thanks guys.

Should be a good winter season by December. You going on your own or booking one of the guides? I should be back at it by then as well. I'm about to get into bow hunting for a little bit. As much as I love being on the water this time of year it's nice to do something different.

Ya'll feel free to holla with any questions. And by all means if ya'll know anyone that is wanting to learn more please tell them about the TroutSupport.com DVDs.
