Matlacha Fishing Report: Redfish And Trout Finally Start Eating

Local anglers Nick and Cathy Smith had a banner morning with me in Matlacha Pass.  Our best catch was Nick's 24 inch redfish that he caught in less than a foot of water near the power lines.  Cathy also scored a smaller red and managed to haul in a beautiful 21 inch trout in the same area.  They also landed over a dozen smaller trout in the Indian Fields north of Matlacha.  All of these fish were caught on Gulp Shrimp rigged on weedless swimbait hooks.
