Trout, Trout, And More Trout
We anchored up off a swimming pool sized pot hole in Pine Island Sound this morning and for a solid hour caught speckled trout (mostly undersized) on almost every cast. It didn't matter what we threw because they hit everything. I did especially well using a Cajun Cork with a DOA paddle tail underneath it. Gulps were even more effective but there was such a swarm of pinfish in the water that those expensive baits were ripped to shreds after a couple of throws. That's been happening for a couple of weeks now and I don't even bother with live shrimp anymore. They won't last more than a few seconds before the pinfish strip them off your hooks. I couldn't rent a single redfish this morning but my arms were actually tired from reeling in so many trout. Not a bad problem to have in my book. Gotta love the fall on Pine Island.
