The last couple days here in Seadrift has been a strange bite. Our bigger fish have either scattered with the rise in tide or recovering from a spawn. I know it’s early in the year for that, but we have caught 100’s of small male trout the last two days, it’s the only explanation I can figure out. We are still catching a lot of keeper size fish mixed in with the smalls, and plastics have worked better than Corkys or topwaters.
Curious to see what happens later in the week if this warming trend continues. At this rate it will be a great Spring. Contact me for March-May openings.
Thanks for that info. If this is the case, we will be catching some big trout in the months to come. I am ready for that, March trough May is absolutely one of my favorite times to fish here out of Seadrift.
What kind of bottom, structure and conditions should I be looking for in the poc area right now and the coming weeks? Been a struggle to produce just a few small reds and zero trout the last couple times I've been down that way. Finding plenty of bait, but not many fish!
