Keeper Trout At Burnt Store

Today was one of those mornings when the sea trout would not stop biting for the last two hours of the outgoing tide.  We were mainly fishing on the outside of the Burnt Store Bar and I was amazed by the sheer amount of big trout we saw.  It was actually rare to hook one that was under the 15 inch size limit.  The fish pictured above was one of the smaller ones we landed but was still a legal 16 incher.  The best bait was the weedless Strike King you see up there which is now my new favorite soft plastic.  These things are really as indestructable as their commercials say.  I rigged one bait this morning and it withstood at least a dozen trout, a blue fish, and a sail cat, and it's ready to fish tomorrow.  Really amazing.
