Pine Island Fishing Report: Best Trout Action In Months

To update my last report from the Matlacha side, the weather suddenly turned fantastic and the sea trout have been coming out of the woodwork.  I spent the last three days fishing in Pine Island Sound with some of my regular anglers who all wanted to have their neighbors over for dinner.  That meant loading up on the trout filets and it was remarkably easy each morning.  The miles of grass flats to the west of Pineland were full of upper-slot sized fish like the 20 incher pictured above that my buddy Gerry Fischer landed on a white Gulp shrimp.  It was so easy hooking these guys that we didn't really bother doing anything else.  No complaints about that from me.
