Well I've been locked down for the most part with classes so these reports are a little late.

Made it out during the last strong front. Winds were dead in the city but strong on the water, figured what the heck and launched.

Ran off a limit of trout on large suspending mullets worked really really slow in channel edges.

No size to them but nice eaters 17"-19"

It was still pretty cold out therewith the wind chill. Truck said it was 42degrees *yikes*.




The next trip was last friday. Significantly warmer but the water was still chilly. It was a "slow" bite without much going on. I had a buddy fishing with me so I was trying to get him to catch.

I started with the pearl rip-n-slash and was cranking out a few keepers with a lot of dinks.



Moved to shallower water and sand pockets, started throwing a dinkum mullet 70 and they liked it.




We left early since he had class and I ended the day with 6 Keepers 16"-23"

My last trip was on Monday morning. I saw that therre was a front coming in so I figured i would get out early and fish hard until then.

well my alarm never went off and I got on the water really late! Water was glassy and foggy so I had to be careful with boats. In about a hour I had landed 12 Keeper trout.

You would pull one in and others would be behind it. I saw 3 trout 27"+ following in my smaller ones. On one occasion a big sow blew up on a dink that I had hooked and just ate it. I dropped my rip-n-slash back down and BAM! She takes the arti but spits it right back out on the hookset.

The fog cleared and wind started shifting after that so I paddled back not wanting to get stuck in the weather. It didnt get windy until the afternoon
cry

It happens. Either way I had a limit of eater trout on the stringer.



Oh well! Ill be locked up until the weekend I think, and this front will keep me off the water.

Till Next Time
Life is good!

cheers


A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
